How wonderful it is to be met at the airport by a friendly, familiar face and be swept into the Mistral Magical Holiday journey (after 2 days of travel) I have just returned home from my third visit to this gem called The Mistral. My friends at home don't understand why I keep

Hi Carol, I'm on my 4th trip in two years. The hotel has a wonderful range of day trips, which are optional extras. There are so many returnees that you can ask anyone at breakfast or dinner what a trip is like. I love them all! The more visits you make, the more hidden treasures you find.

"Quieter rooms in the rear."
"The back rooms are quieter if you're not partying with the lively ones! (I was)"
"Rooms at the front have the best sea views but overlook the bar and road. The rooms at the back are very quiet, with side sea views."
"Quieter in the back, delux available"
