Very unprofessional service, swiming pool dirty, and easytobook gave me wrong information. Expensive comparing with service. Didnt use all things that was on your website. Wrong publicity on web site, because comme services couldnt use. So bad service. We arrived before twelve and they gave us our room at 5 o clock

Booked a week via RCI Timeshare, the rules of the booking are that at least one of the party must book thalassotherapy treatments, no worries, we did it as a couple and had a really relaxing time. Ile de Re is very flat, so the views you get on is island like Sardinia are missing, however, it was still very... More

As Americans traveling to this hotel, it has been very, very difficult to communicate. The front desk personnel speak very limited English, if at all. We had to buy a 350 euro treatment package, which we found out later is a standard package with no choices of what services we took. We missed the tour of the facility due to... More

We stayed in room 114 and found it clean, a reasonable size but extremely basic. The bed was really hard, we were given two quite small tough pillows only (though the bed was a good size for France) with only one blanket and a thin bedspread. The room was really cold and although we adjusted the air con unit it... More

I'm going to be a little bit more descriptive here because we were caught off guard with ameneties that required additional payment. The room was older. There was a refrigerator under the TV. Yes, there was a TV, but with poort reception and limited channels. There was a stove top (2 burners), small sink hidden; but no pots, plates, silverware.... More

We were recommended to go there by friends and we liked it. Found the staff really friendly and v charming and helpful. Room was comfortable and clean and quite large for French standards. Public areas we found clean and tidy. Breakfast was a decent selection and worth the money. We'll go back another time for a bit longer and use... More

We were very apprehensive about staying here, some of the (English) reviews were not very good, however we went with an open mind and were presently surprised. The hotel was in the middle of a quiet residential area 5 mins cycle from the nearest beach or 5 mins from the quaint village centre. The hotel was very clean and smart... More

As a last minute booking during high season, we were pleased to find availability at this 3 star spa hotel. However our joy was short lived on arrival at the hotel. After a long wait to check in , the reception staff were cold and disinterested, and couldn't even offer the briefest of smiles. Our ground floor room, number 119,... More

This is a comfortable enough room to use as a base when exploring, but is of the standard of a modern Travelodge or Premier Inn quality. The spa is not a "luxury" spa, more a treatment centre for those taking Thalassic treatments and cures. We tried to book a massage session in which was not cheap, but experienced a real... More

We would not go to this hotel again. It did not meet any of our expectations. We looked forward to a restful stay at Thalacap Ile de Re. It was a disappointment. We arrived by taxi from St Martin (€30) at 17.00hrs on the 17th September 2009. On check in when we sought to reserve for dinner we were told... More
