We travelled over from Les Gets in France (The Alps, Portes du Soleil) because there wasn't a lot of soleil in the Alps this year - we were sun seeking after encountering some unseasonally disastrous weather in the mountains and settled upon this hotel after some on-holiday internet research. The trip was long, about 550 miles and the end result... More

Quiet place in early July, accommodation clean and ok. Would have liked a bar or at least a shop on site. Wifi was very slow and poor signal strength ( and mobile phone signal weak). Plenty of parking. Easier to get to this site from the coast road.

Really can't knock this for price, got a sea view and pretty decent room, with plenty of space for family of four. Outside paint work left a little to be desired, but on the whole no complaints. Two heated swimming pools, but only one was open in April. Never saw another English person, and some of the staff only spoke... More

Just back from a "suite 5 personnes" but we were 3. To be honest I don't think that it could accommodate 5 adults but it would be ok with 3 kids. The room/suite has a kitchen part enough to cook quick meals. The view is beautiful on the ocean. The design is nice and it's a smart choice if you... More

We arrived late evening and had difficulty finding the hotel. Best to approach it from coast road. Staff were helpful and friendly but we were disappointed not to get a sea view as we were staying a week. As a couple staying in a one bed apartment meant for four people we wound up sleeping in the living room as... More

With a view of crushing waves on the black rock formation, this resort has a great location. Our 1bdrm. apartment was on the upper floor with large balcony, basic furnishings, fully equipped kitchenette, flat screen TV (no English language channels) and the ocean view. The residence is in some need of proper maintenance, inside and out, including torn & worn... More

Our apartment was fresh, clean with very good facilities and beautiful Atlantic views. The balcony was a good size with a big table and plenty of chairs so one could enjoy... More

We stayed in the Hotel. The room was bright and well decorated and kitchen area was well equipped. The most disappointing was the bed chesterfield which should have been replaced months ago.
