We stayed for 4 nights - The rooms were clean and spacious. Our room was on the 1st floor looking over the main enterance. We could hear the crowd in the bar nearby every night and also the teenages who use the out side of the hotel as a skate park @ the w;'end........So please request a room with either... More

Stayed at this hotel spa with my mom who experienced the spa treatments while I enjoyed the area. The hotel staff was very courteous and very helpful with everything. The hotel is decently renovated with a few quirks here and there (slow elevators, water leaks in the hallway under the glass ceilings). Rooms are of decent size and comfortable with... More

Great Hotel and location , unfortunately they don't let children in the Spa....they now state you have to be 14, yet they don't advise this on any of the web sites that they advertise through ...such as Booking.com ...who incidentally take no responsibility for anything on their webiste as they put all resposnibility on the hotel. Shame.

The hotel is in the center of a cute sea Town in the Pays Basque. We took the demi pension. Delightful creative menu yet light at the Oceane with a... More

The hotel is ideally located within the town. On the beach, and just a short walk to shops and restaurants. The view is great looking out across the ocean. Check in was efficient where you are provided with a plastic bag with swimming bonnet and spa sandals. The bedroom was small but sufficient with safe and basic mini bar with... More

After reading some pretty bad reviews on Tripadvisor we were surprised at how nice the hotel was. There are definitely some delayed maintenance issues (the carpet really needs to be replaced and the rooms repainted), but the bones are good in this hotel. The bathroom had a lovely marble counter top and the tile was very nice. There was a... More

Stayed here for a week's spa package. The chef is excellent and restaurant staff very attentive. Highly recommend the quality of the spa treatments and the staff although a minor criticism would be that spa reception can appear a little indifferent - they spend a lot of time chatting with one another even when clients are waiting and for non-French...

Occasionally we drive through France to Spain/Portugal and find ourselves spending the night in the south-west corner of France. We've stayed at, and enjoyed, Biarritz and San Sebastian and thought that we'd try St Jean-de-Luz this time, booking for three nights. Unfortunately most hotels were fully booked, so we thought we'd take a chance on the Helianthal despite the very... More

Love the hotel, the food and especially the thalasso spa. Hotel is built to look like a ship so it feels like you are on a cruise, only better. Spa and restaurant have lovely views of the French Atlantic. Great food and weekend buffet is lavish and delicious. Although we have a home here it's still fun to spend a... More

Great location. The restaurant is really good (French cuisine), the staff is really nice but the hotel needs an upgrade (so does the thalasso). We keep going back because it became a tradition but I doubt an international clientele will like it, especially with the price. I will go back simply because my grandmother will refuse to go anywhere else... More
