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

Stayed here on 21/22 May 2014. Excellent location close to the sea, the beach and the centre of town. Very helpful staff and delightful rooms equipped to a very high standard. Very reasonable prices for an outstanding hotel in the price range. Thoroughly recommended.

Smart friendly lady behind reception was attentive and helpful. Double room was quite pink but comfortable and... More

The owners and staff could... More

I went to Les Sables D'Olonne on a whim really as I was really planning to go to Biarritz but it ended up being too far. The Arc En Ciel is a little bit bohemium, slightly quirky and different. You notice this when you go into the reception and on each of the landings. Neon signs, black tiling and a... More

In the area around Olonne sur Mer in France we couldn't find a suitable campsite so after calling in at several and being turned away we gave up and went to an amazing hotel in Les Sables d' Olonne called Hotel Arc en Ciel.
