This family run hotel is all about customer satisfaction. The staff/owners were the friendliest we ever encountered! Room was large/roomy enough to fit our family of 4. Ocean view, calm environment, children friendly and heated pool were all extremely appreciated. Walking distance (2min) from the center of town/port where lots of restaurants, shops, and stores are located. Breakfast was extremely... More

5 minutes from a picturesque fishing harbour packed with great restaurants , this hotel is cosily decorated with a marine theme, on a west facing beach for glorious sunsets. Rooms are fine, breakfast is a generous and varied buffet (great coffee!) and service is warm and welcoming. Shame wifi is only accessed in the lounge (but who needs it on... More

This hotel is mid Island south side on the west edge of this town so you can see the sunset off to the west. We are driving a big circle around Europe and where looking for a place that would not be too expensive, or crowded and yet still be in a place that gives a good sunset, more so... More

Spotlessly clean, freshly decorated (we assume) friendly hotel right on the (only average) beach. Would recommend Ile de Re nearby over Ile d'Oleron; but if you want to visit the island, this is a great choice. Walk to numerous restaurants and a few shops around the little fishing port. Note that is accessibility is an issue, there is no elevator.... More

A charming and personal hotel with a fantastic location. Beautiful building from the 30's with friendly and dedicated owners. The room was clean, big and quite cosy - the pool was lovely and the owners are apparently interested in design which you can notice in the lounge/breakfast room. The breakfast was ok but from a scendianvian perspective we would have... More

A rip off!! the name, description and photos are very misleading. "Face aux flots" is a display of NO flots. You may see the water hiden by roof tops from the "De-lux rooms" 3 rooms with a tiny "balcony" exposed to the sun with of course no Air conditioning. You enjoy the STRICT minimum, soap the size of your thumb,... More

This hotel faces the waves and all day one can hear the waves beating on a slightly rocky coastline. No lift- so one has to drag the cases up a few flights. Breakfast was reasonable. Room nice and clean but decoration a little seasidish. As in all hotels I visited in France only a few boring french channels available. However... More

Good location, althought the beach in front is not the best in the island! Cozy restaurant: great fish dinners, even if there's almost one choice menu. Rooms are a little small but clean. Those in the front are bigger, newer and with the nice sea view; also they avoid the smell from the kitchen that sometimes -depending on the menu-... More
