We stayed for four nights over the august bank holiday. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. The inclusive breakfasts were generous and served till midday which was a great surprise. We ate in the hotel canteen everyday. The menu is simple; salads, sandwiches, crêpes and waffles but they are prepared with great care and were delicious. The location was... More

We stayed here 2 years ago the week when the current owners took over. Since then they have updated the hotel really well. We probably had the best room, just above the bar with a great sea view. The location is brilliant - a few yards from the beach and close to all the restaurants, shops and bars. Petit dejeuner... More

We wanted to stay in this hotel based on good reviews and booked the last available room 1 day ahead of our stay. However, the next day we found out that a family member has suddenly passed away and we had to return home immediately. We contacted the hotel and explained the situation both in English and French, but the... More

We stopped for two nights at this small hotel on our way to the Algarve. It is situated on the sea front opposite the surf club and has private secure parking. The staff were very friendly and helpful and it was a pleasure staying there. We booked on the internet in advance through a booking agency and paid more than... More

There is a car park next to the hotel but you need to get the key off the person at reception to use it. Staff were very friendly. The rooms were a bit more basic than I imagined but clean enough. Breakfast is a few euros extra and consisted of fruit, croissant and tea/coffee. Overall, I would go back again... More

This hotel is the essence of a family-run hotel in SW France. The proprietors are very friendly, and so helpful with questions, recommendations, requests, etc. For example - the cups in the room are only plastic (and that lovely flimsy plastic that French hotels seem to love), but we happened to have a bottle of wine with us from our...

We stayed at the hotel for one night. The location is fantastic - on the beach front road very close to all the restaurants and shops. It's a great location for surfers - we were able to check the waves by just walking across the road! The carpark is free with a locked gate. The rooms are really cheap for... More

Really good value for money- a stones throw from the beach, clean, family friendly and helpful staff. A great place for anyone looking for a simple, comfortable hotel next to the beach. We stayed in a family room which was quite small but it didn't matter as we didn't spend much time there.

We stayed here for 5 nights. It's a small hotel, right by the beach (although it doesn't really have a sea view other than just about from the bar!). The managers changed after the first 2 nights but this didn't affect our stay. Our room was large (there was a single bed as well as the double) and clean and... More
