We went for a 3 night weekend break and it was as fantastic as ever. We stayed in a brannew refurbished studio, a bit small but still very stylish and well done. I will always recommend La Montagne as it is right on the rock and the sound of the waves just makes the stay.

Nice stay, the beds were amazing. The room was disappointing, the main bedroom did not have any privacy, the bathroom was terrible. The service from the waiters was disgustingly bad.

What was ok: location definitively is best of all, swimming pool is okay, staff was friendly and willing to help. What was not: rooms very aged (it seems that this hotel was the best 20/30 year ago, but will poor maintenance since then), worn latches (difficult to close), rooms badly cleaned, furniture deteriorating. Trying to see in a good perspective,...

It was a great deal! The place was beautiful, lovely sea view and the apartment was clean. The staff were friendly and very helpful.The patio of the apartment was just a couple steps away from the beach, amazing. Wish we could have stayed longer.
