Situated between Argeles-sur-Mer and Collioure (about 2 kms from the latter), the hotel is very well positioned on the cliffs looking out to sea, very easy to find. One of the attractions for us was on-site, free parking; in Collioure this is a problem at the best of times often difficult to locate and expensive.
All of the staff that we met in the hotel were very friendly and very helpful. The reception staff all spoke English. The hotel has a lot of facilities and an excellent heated swimming pool. As we only stayed for one night, we sadly did not get to use them but they all looked superb.
I think that all the rooms are face the sea with balconies but the main road to Collioure and the railway line are between the shore and the hotel. Thus it can be a little noisy if sitting on the balcony or with the window open but it was not a problem at night with the window closed.
We had a standard room which was a little on the small side and somewhat Spartan. The en-suite bathroom was equipped with a shower bracket over the bath at the wrong height and that did not function very well. It would pay the owners to re-equip with proper showers as I would imagine that their water bill from guest taking baths must be enormous.
Breakfast was superb; an excellent choice of good quality. Perhaps perceived as expensive at 11 euros per head, it is in fact good value.
