We stopped here for two nights and found the hotel to be exactly what we needed. We had a basic double room but this included a spare room with bunk beds. The bed was comfortable, everything was very clean and the windows had fantastic electronic shutters that completely blocked the light out. The hotel is across the road from the... More

My wife and I stopped in the hotel 1 night and found the staff very friendly and very helpful and went out of their way to help us. Our room was in a separate building behind the main reception and the room was exceptionally clean and well presented but a basic layout with ample extra blankets and pillows provided. The... More

This 3 star (French rating) hotel is run by a husband and wife team in the traditinal French manner. The hotel is located just across a small street from the beach and sea. There is also a heated indoor pool. We always stay on a half-board basis and find the dinners to be very well prepared and always offering a... More

We stayed for several days with half board. Our room was very clean with very good shower. Although we were at the back we had a nice little balcony. Food was traditional French cuisine and service perfect. La tranche s mer has miles of forest trails and superb beaches. A vibrant town center provides all the souvenirs you might want... More

This hotel is in a great location, both for the beach and the town. The swimming pool is an added bonus if you get a rainy morning, as we did. The hotel was spotlessly clean, not a speck anywhere. The room was dated but functional. Hate sponge mattresses but I know they are common now. Not much noise insulation, could... More

This should be rated higher - excellent position with all the necessary facilities, including parking facilities. Only a few metres from the beach, and if you prefer an indoor pool, it has one too! Restaurant is very good, rooms are very good, staff all very pleasant & helpful. La Tranche has a wealth of shops & eating places for all... More

The main advantage of Hotel les Dunes is the location. The hotel's indoor heated pool is across Avenue Maurice Sampson as is the restaurant (seasonal - closed when I was there). It is about half a Km to the downtown area, an easy walk. Free parking across the street. Breakfast is available for about 10 euros, worth it for the... More

It is always nice to stay at a hotel that exceeds your expectations rather than vice versa. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights on an extended weekend break and found the hotel comfortable, clean and well located. We visited out of season and paid a very reasonable price. Our room had a balcony looking out over the beach... More

Just stayed at this Hotel and I really cannot understand these star ratings! It is rated as a 2* but it was very very clean, comfortable, good facilities in the room etc., and fabulous breakfast with loads of choice. The hotel is right opposite the beach with a large private car park. All the staff that we met were very... More

We booked to stay at this hotel with the intention of staying there for three days to meet up with our French friends. Unfortunately I broke my arm and my hospital appointment was in the middle of the break. There was absolutely no problem in changing the booking. We stayed in a basic room that was absolutely spotless. The reception... More
