This is a great elegant hotel on the beach , and within walking distance of the center of la Baule. Service is excellent. Too bad our rooms were not renovated but we had a double suite with a balcony, so very nice . Breakfast was very good, a large buffet with a lot of choices.We had lunch at their beach... More

Beautiful, elegant beachside hotel. The breakfast offering was exquisite & bountiful. I did not like how the toilet is in a separate room a little too far from the main bathroom which offers a shower & tub. I took a wonderful hot bath in this elegant bathroom. The room was tastefully decorated but I fond that the French don't use... More

This a great hotel situated on the beach with very nice view. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and the bed is very comfortable. The wifi is free but the parking is not. The price for the parking is acceptable. The breakfast is plentiful and the restaurant offers a 5 star menu.

Although the hotel itself is beautiful the staff in general is not tightly recruited and managed. At times it can veer into comedy, eg when the concierge at the desk does not know where some of the reception rooms are and accompanied us on a random search. At other times it is far less pleasant such as when the minibus... More

Eight of us went on golfing trip to La Baule and we stayed on this lovely hotel. Not only is the hotel fantastic (and the location doesn’t spoil) but the service there is second to none. How they did put up with 8 golfers from Jersey was just awesome and when I realised I had forgot my phone in my... More

The rooms are lovely, the beds are very comfortable, housekeeping were very good. The Front Desk staff, Concierge & Valet staff were all excellent and very friendly. The location is great in terms of the beach but you are a bit of a walk (probaly 1km) in either direction to the local restaurants. With one of our party on a... More

Our third or fourth trip here over the last 10 years or so but the first time we have made it in summer rather than during the shoulder months. A couple of small gripes which I will come to shortly but best to start with the location. The hotel is really well positioned next to the beach. From the hotel... More

Everything about this hotel is perfect except for spotty wifi coverage and noise from a room used by the room cleaning staff from around 6 am. All staff were very helpful and courteous, as you might expect in a 5 star hotel. However, if you are a light sleeper do not stay in room 302. The noise was clicking of... More
