Jacuzzzi, whirlpools, steam and seawater, but too many people. The facilities just aren't equipped fo rthe number of users. Our room was pleasant with the requested ocean view. Lovely ocean view. The staff was pleasant but we had little contact. We were onour own which was just what we wanted. The seafood buffet was fine although nothing exceptional. Same with... More

There is little to complain about here.... The place was spotless and the staff were attentive and polite throughout. I agree the place was slightly clinical and appealed to an older market (I was one of the youngest there in my mid-twenties) Breakfast was fine although more hot food would be welcomed The bedroom was adequate with the fridge a...

I spent 6 days in this hotel sharing a room with a friend. First I thought the rooms were a bit small, but it as clean and there is a bath, toiletries samples.

I am happy with my stay here. I was in room number 10. Apart from a slightly noisy couple next door obviously having a spa weekend, My stay was enjoyable. The restaurant staff were more than helpful due to my lack of French. The food was really nice and well presented! I'll be back!

We visited this hotel for 3 days. Having read reviews by other trip advisor clients I thought some we unfair. The place is spotless well run and staff can speak English.

The hotel locats really great, just on the sea coast. It has its own spa zone with several saunas, swimming pools, massage area, etc. It has its own parking on the territory.

room was quite small for a 4star. Very white and quite clinical. But also very clean. Breakfast was passable - good were the croissants and pastries. Poor the hot food, the lack of bowls for cereal. A plus is the location, right on Sword beach. Did not use the spa but it was well used by others so looked busy.... More

... That's about it really. Bland decor. Plastic reception staff. Happy and friendly service staff. Poor buffet breakfast. Clean tidy and quiet rooms, but thick firmish pillows are not my thing.

Do not go if you are British and have children. Do not use as a stopover for the Ouisterham ferry. This is a French Spa for rich French people who believe in the healing power of salt water, steamed scrambled eggs and walking round everywhere swathed in a towel.
