Constance Ephelia

I'm getting mixed reviews about this..My main concern is how long of a taxi ride is it if we want to go have dinner outside of the resort. For the 5 nights we are there, I would expect to out at least 3 for dinner, I don't mind taxi rides, depending on duration of the ride and price..

The reason I picked it is due to the fact that it has a calmer beach in August...

Any thoughts?

Ephelia does not have functional restaurants nearby, so I advise you to rent a car, otherwise you will end paying for a taxi 70-80 euro per night to get to Baie Lazare, Victoria or Beau Vallon. Also you need to book a taxi driver in advance if you decide to use the taxi instead of a rented car.

Thanks,

how does this compare to he Kempinski...

Is kempinski considered the same standard, and also, is it sheltered from the winds in August, allowing for pleasant beach/pool swimming?

Kempinski has less facilities than Ephelia and not so good snorkeling. Moreover it has to be avoided during July-August since swimming is very hard here due to rough seas.
