We only spend one night in Biarritz and were pleased to have found Hotel de l'Ocean. Because of the location we paid a little extra for a room with a balcony overlooking the square and the ocean. It was great for sharing a bottle of wine with some cheese as the sun prepared to go down. Because it was in... More

Booked this hotel in the town center and really done the right thing. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel was really well situated in the center so we could get anywhere easily. The room was clean and comfortable. They have a restaurant also which we tried on the 1st night and it was probably the best food we... More

This hotel is in a great location. Our bedrooms were Nos 4 & 5, both of which had balconies and overlooked the square and had a view of the sea. Bedroom 4 was quite small and the toilet and shower were reminiscent of a ships cabin in size. The towels were poor quality and inadequate in size. There weren't any... More

The hotel is OK. Normal 3 stars, what to say else. Old towels (really small), small bathroom and a separated toilet. Uncomfortable old furniture on the balcony. Poor cleaning. But the worst experience was hotel's restaurant: overpriced food/drinks and terrible waitress.

We arrived here on a warm day and really liked this very busy beach side town. We probably would have liked our stay even more if we were not in the Annex room which although it had a little garden and was opposite the church was distinctly cell like. The bed upstairs was very comfy but the sofa bed downstairs... More

I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Biarritz. When I travel, I like to be centrally located, have a clean room with enough space, and would rather handle my own bags. Hotel de l'Ocean was perfect for me. We had an amazing view of the ocean from within the room and from our balcony, we were a minute or two... More

Little difficult to find but once there ideal location. Staff helpful friendly. Balcony rooms good for people watching---did not find them noisy even on Fete weekend. Added bonus watched firework display from balcony and orchestra concert next evening. Safe in room not working and was not mended during our stay. Food fine. Would recommend but be prepared to store car... More

The hotel is situated in the centre of the city. We live in a family room which is rather comfortable, but you get the impression that everything is very cheap here and can easily be broken. Moreover, there are problems with the shower. The hotel is certainly not suitable for a long stay. The price is too high for what... More

Stayed in this hotel in mid May on a Saturday night. No parking at the hotel-had to use underground public parking lot at excessive price .Hotel very clean but restaurant food very poor. Hotel in central location and because of this exceptionally noisy until the early hours of the morning. Can not recommend.
