Just arrived back from our second visit to this hotel. This hotel is very elegant and guests are treated with the utmost respect. It is directly on the seafront at La Baule and within 20 mins walking distance of the town. The rooms have been refurbished since we were last there two years ago and are very nice. The corridors...

Comfortable beach-front hotel with an old-fashioned charm. Having stayed in other Barriere hotels, this one should probably be next in line for a refresh. The location, rooms, dining and service are beyond reproach, but the overall ambiance and especially room multimedia and internet are need of a serious upgrade. You can pass on the kids club - also terribly old-fashioned... More

My family stayed for 5 nights from 18th August and we had a lovely stay. Our room on the 5th floor seemed to be newly decorated and even the carpet in the corridor was opulent - it looks like a sandy beach.. very luxurious.

My family were meeting a French lady from near Lyon, and our daughter's old school friend and family from England who were staying at Quiberon. The rear terrace, overlooking the pool was an ideal spot. It just drips elegance and grace but the tariff is somewhat eye-watering even if it is on the sea-front and has an exclusive area down...

The beach view from the rooms (if you ask and pay for one) is amazing!!! The service is also quite good, everyone was rather friendly. Nevertheless, the rest of the experience is not worth it. For the price paid the rooms should be in a better state and there should be more details like conditioner, body soap, and so on.

This is a beautiful hotel but it is in the genre of "faded elegance". The rack rate price makes your eyes water and for a seafront room you really have to pay top dollar.
