Hotel is beautifully decorated and we were lucky to get the room overlooking to pool and sea (only few available) as we were celebrating our engagement. The receptionist also organized beautiful bouquet of white roses into our room as ordered in advance by my fiancé. We found... More

When they realised we wouldn't go, they tried to bribe us offering a free rent a car! Everything in hotel is in french, so if you don't speek french- your problem.. Location... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at this hotel. We had a great time. We had the "all inclusive" package. The food was very good, we had the possibility to choose between various dishes (you can eat vegetables, fruits, meat, desserts, everything you can dream of). The Staff was very friendly also. Our room had a view over the... More

On arrival (1am), we were greeted by the lovely evening receptionist who offered us a drink and sprted us out.

The village is very quiet and you can really rest here. The staff was very friendly and helpful, always there when needed. We had a groundfloor room, spacious and clean, but i... More
