Maybe I was unlucky but this was a very disappointing stay. We waited past check in time for our room to be ready. Our room, for which we were expecting an upgrade, was probably the worst in the hotel with dark, dank and mouldy balcony. Both my Gold Accor status and Amex hotel booking both should have offered an upgrade....

We stayed here for 5 nights, from the second we arrived until we left everything was perfect. The hotel is on the beach (almost) it has a strange configuration, it seems to be the first 5 floors of a 8 floor apartment block.. so it gives you the impression that the hotel is much bigger than it is. Also the...

This hotel is worth every star. Modern, well equipped, clean rooms, impeccable service. Breakfast buffer was superb, outlook from room balcony was excellent, with views across the pool to the beach. Without a doubt, would stay there again.

Nice spot on the sea with most rooms having sea view. Hotel is right on the long walking path along the sea that heads to the town, marina, aquarium, parks, and island with church ruins, etc. Lot of walking and nature options available in Biaritz, many beautiful paths. Hotel is very nice, great breakfast buffet, lovely outdoor seating. Pool is...

All Sofitel hotels are great in my opinion. The location was good, had a fantastic ocean view from the room balcony. The room was very clean, with a huge bed. We also used to sit in the comfortable lobby lounge during the hot hours. The food in the restaurant was amazing, they even offered diet menu and cooking master classes)...

Easy parking, comfy beds and fantastic service. Wish we could have stayed longer to try the spa. Walking distance to the town, with lots of restaurants. Join Accor to get rewards.. free drinks in the bar!! Suitable for families too.

The initial welcome and general attitude of the staff was extremely warm, helpful and friendly. the accommodation was very comfortable, of a standard we expected, but the bed far exceeded expectations it was exceptionally comfortable. All facilities in the hotel were easily accessible and of the standard expected, and the restaurant was excellent all round.

This is a 5 stars, so you can get what is expected in terms of service and comfort. We did not experience the Spa or swimming pools facilities and only spent one night there, but this sure looks like the place to be for a few days. It is on the expensive side, so be ready to heat up that...

I had been to Biarritz many times and always thought this would be the best hotel to stay in. We were unlucky with the weather but had chosen this hotel for it's indoor pool just in case that happened. The indoor pool is full of kids, not pleasant, not relaxing. We used the indoor pool once and never again even...

Can't say enough- from the wonderful staff at the front desk (big thanks to Mary who was so kind in helping us!), to the gorgeous ocean front location, to the indoor thalassa therapies, the ridiculously comfortable beds and delicious breakfast buffet- we absolutely loved our stay here and would highly recommend it.
