I was somewhat apprehensive, given the lack of recent English language reviews and the slightly confusing website, but fear not! This is a great little hotel.
Family run, apparently owned by the same family for 20 years, no problem with communication in English and extremely honest, friendly and helpful staff.
I suppose this is what you would call "family oriented" but it was also perfect for a couple. It is not luxurious, but comfortable and clean and well-located. The pool was exactly as advertised, as were the little cabin-like rooms. My only advice regarding rooms would be that the associated patios are not all equal - some have little private patios that would see sun if it was sunny, whereas others share a small space with the adjacent unit. It is also unfortunate that they charge separately (and steeply) for the sauna/hot tub, as it would have been nice, but I wasn't about to pay the 20 Euro for 30 minutes or similar that they charge.
While Cancale is a nice little town, we used it as a base for the area - we went for driving trips most days and walked down to the beach/restaurant area several times. The walk to the beach was medium (probably 15 minutes, after a couple of times, it seemed quite short). There are a couple of large grocery stores and a bakery very near, so it was easy to grab breakfast and picnic supplies in the morning or en route to wherever.
