We stayed here for 3 nights and for 2 rooms - 1 x double and 1 x twin. It was booked with an online booking site, and cost a total of 972 euros (including tax and breakfast) or 162 euros per room per night.
The hotel is very contemporary - we liked the decor. The bedrooms are very small (more like our Premier Inns in London). Both rooms only had a single wardrobe, paper cups for tea/coffee and the twin beds were the smallest we have ever come across - our children really struggled! Adults certainly couldn't use them. Overall, it feels just a little bit too basic for the money but then Biarritz is a very expensive place.
Breakfast is average. Strangely no toaster. Hot: sausages and scrambled eggs. Fresh eggs provided for you to boil your own (but they kept running out of the eggs). Yoghurts, waffles, bread, jam, some cereals and some dried fruit. But perfectly adequate to get your day started.
On the plus side:
The location is 10 mins walk to the beach front and you are right in the centre of the town so everything is on your doorstep.
The car park is right next door to the hotel (15 euros per 24 hours).
The hotel will provide beach towels for 3 euros per day - if you don't exchange them at the end of the day and keep them for the next day then they won't charge you any extra.
The Reception staff are very helpful.
The hotel is very clean and there was no road noise. However our rooms were at the back of the hotel so that may account for that.
Make sure that your room is 3rd floor or above - our bedrooms on the 2nd floor was on the same level as and looked directly on to a car park which is a bit disconcerting when you are trying to get dressed!
We needed to book a 4th night but they wanted to charge 214 euros per room - this was too big a hike from what we had paid previously so we decided to move on to another resort.
Overall, this hotel is geared up for business users who need a room for one night and is fine for that. It served its purposes for our family but we wouldn't book it again due to the amount it charges for the room size and generally the lack of frills for the cost.
