good stay, big room, ventilation a little bit noisy and special decoration. Availabity of parking is a plus regarding the size of the roads between beach and port, lots of restaurants around, easy to find

Lovely hotel although decor was a bit unexpected. Loved the constellation over our bed, the room was nice and the balcony the perfect size to rest. We so enjoyed soaking in the large jacuzzi and would have booked a massage if we had realized they were available ahead of arrival. Very nice Staff!

I selected this hotel based on other reviews. It was close to the train station that I was arriving in and near the beach. It is quite different than I would normally look for, but in the right place. My room was on the ground floor, the only room on this floor, and 4 feet from the front desk. Don't... More

an interesting hotel, but the best we stayed in during our time in France. we were given a room upgrade with great sea views and particularly enjoyed the décor. staff were helpful and tried their best to speak English when our French let us down.

Good location, depending who was on reception is to how good the service is, some not very friendly, not even really sure how to describe this property I think other reviews using quirky are quite right bit of an adults only vibe & rooms aren't very soundproof. Didn't use the spa the pictures make it look a lot bigger than... More

Great location, close to beach and town centre and restaurants and quite easy to find considering the tiny roads. Locked car parking with back access to hotel, so useful. List of little extras. Picnic area with little tables and chairs, sheltered, with crockery, bits, microwave, fridge....all outside the back entry. Beautiful baroque painted dining room, then the decor gets totally...

Les Sables d'Olonne was a great place to stay with such a great choice of restaurants....lovely beach with both a harbour and port. The hotel was perfectly situated, the parking secure but you need to book....we did not realise but were fortunate that a space was available. Very quirky interior which put a smile on your face every time you... More

Staff, location, bedrooms, parking for my bike. All of it without fault & staff constantly cheery & helpful. Will be coming back. The bedrooms are a delight & it's lovely hearing the waves close by. Lots of facilities (spa etc...) to use which I didn't have time for.

The best about the Arc en Ciel Hotel is the location; its absolytely perfect one block from the beach in downtown with a great choise of restaurants. The customer service is pretty plain, they said hello every now and then and didnt give me any information about the city before I went to the reseption and asked for the map... More

I read the reviews before booking, so knew this was a bit different. Wish I'd gone to the Best Western. We'd previously stayed at the Atlantic, but wanted somewhere a bit closer to the main town and the sandy part of the beach. The location is very good, but that's all I liked about it. We asked for a quiet... More
