My wife and I chose this hotel as our base to discover the region. I am writing this using the hotel wifi as I sit by the outdoor pool. It is in a great location with the beach and harbour practically on the door step. Parking on the street is free and pretty easy if you don't mind doing a bit of driving around. Hotel parking is also possible, but costs about 10 euros and in my opinion isn't necessary since we've managed to get a space within 5 mins walk each day.
We're here with our 5 month old daughter and there was a cot already prepared in the room on arrival. The rooms are perfectly spacious and I like the fact that no matter which room you have you'll always get a balcony with a sea view.
We haven't bothered with the hotel's 15 euro breakfast since you can get a coffee, juice and bread with jam in practically any restaurant for about 6 euros. The hotel does actually offer a reduced breakfast along these lines for 7 euros per person if you pay for it there and then.
I don't speak much French, and since this is very much a French resort, the staff around town generally don't speak much English. It doesn't matter to us since we have spent each day driving to the nearby towns of Nimes, Monpellier, Saintes Marie de la Mer and the national park La Carmague.
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a typical French beach holiday, with great sea food and facilities for young families.
