La Baule is luxury, so is every location there. And Barriere hotels are definitely best representatives of this city. It is Big (to compare with Castel Marie Lousie just next to it) and once you choose Royal Thalasso you choose something big instead of boutique. But the greatest thing which compensates the feeling of "veteran of hotel business" is spa:... More

We stayed there for 2 nights in mid-November as a couple without kids. We had a deluxe 2 bedroom with sea view, it was on the 2nd floor (level 3 in America) with a little balcony.

The barriere hotel is in a great position and gives exceptional service. Although we were on a golfing trip and in the hotel residence, every thing about the hotel was first class. It was a bit strange to have people in dressing gowns parading around during the day, but there you go! Not sure what the other reviewers want, but... More

The rooms: I was upgraded upon arrival (always a nice surprise, and very unexpected since I was travelling alone).

I stayed at this hotel in Sep 09 (granted only for 1 night) with my sister. The hotel is in need of a major refurbishment- the decor looks shabby and does not fit a hotel of this star rating. The room was adequate, but again perhaps not what we were really expecting from a Barriere property. We used the indoor... More

Very stylish hotel on the beachfront, with great pool, saunas and steamroom included in the room price. The restaurant , bars and breakfasts were rather pricy, but as it was off-season most of La Baule was closed, so it took some exploring to find alternatives.
