Ibis Le Touquet Thalassa
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Great location for a hotel in this charming French town but very expensive for what is a very basic room. being below the breakfast room didn't help with the sound of staff walking over the hard floor above from early in the morning

This hotel is right on the beach and we had a sea-view room with balcony. It was bitterly cold when we were there but it was still lovely to be able to look out of the huge window onto the beach. The heating in the room was efficient but not overpowering. The beds were very comfy and we had a separate sofa seat which was nice. The TV was mainly French with just BBC World News and CNBC in English.

The pool, which is a good size, is a heated salt water but be very careful that you are prepared for the strict dress code. Everyone has to wear swimming caps and men are not allowed to wear bermuda shorts. My husband wore cotton Speedos but was told they weren't suitable because they had pockets so we had to go and buy him some swim trunks without pockets. I had read a previous review on Tripadvisor which had mentioned the swim caps so was prepared for that but didn't know about the bermuda shorts. I have looked at the Ibis website and cannot find it mentioned anywhere. They do have a spa shop but the prices are very steep, we bought some swim trunks in a local sports shop for a fraction of the price.

I would have liked a spa treatment but it was all in French and when I asked at reception they said they had no translation and didn't offer to explain the differences in treatments. I can speak and read some French but not enough to understand the complex language used to describe the treatments and I didn't feel I wanted to take pot luck at their higher than average prices.

We didn't use the restaurant prefering to walk into town to try local restaurants but it was quite busy at times so I presume the food was ok.

When we checked out, the bill was 66.90 Euros higher than I expected. When I queried it the first receptionist just shrugged her shoulders but when I persisted she found someone else who explained that the hotel automatically add breakfast to your bill whether you have had it or not!! Once I explained that we didn't eat breakfast she removed it without arguement but it is worth checking your bill.

I would imagine this would be a fabulous location in the summer, right on the beach with a sea view and I must say the room was much bigger than some Ibis rooms I have stayed in. Our room was clean but there was a little mildew on the net curtains from the condensation.

I would happily stay in this hotel again as I felt it was good value for money and the pool is an added treat.

Room Tip: We had a basement (level -1) sea view room with balcony but if you were nervous about security it mi...

Great location overlooking the beach, new fixed price menu everyday, breakfast we felt was a bit pricey. The road signs leading to the hotel could have been improved close to the seafront. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay.

Room looking tired and needed a proper cleaning especially the back of the sink unit and desk top. The setee was looking worn. The wooden floor had a covering of sand and the radiator as loose. The dining area was well appointed and comfortable. The dinner in the restuarant was excellent with good efficient service. The breakfast overpriced with no hot food in the middle of winter. Some scrambled egg etc would be appropriate.

I think that some of the reviews have been too harsh. The room was immaculate and modest but modern and functional. (like a British Travelodge) The balconies are right on the beach or should I say, in the beach. the hotel shares the facilities with the more expensive Novotel next door - and you can casually stroll from the Ibis to the treatment facilities in the warmth of a purpose built passageway. Bring your own bathrobe and shower cap and flip flops as hire of robes is expensive and proper footwear and swimming hats must be worn. treatments can be purchased a la carte but are a bit pricey - but access to Pool is free .the Pool boasts a great view too. Breakfast was fine - don't expect cooked English. We shall be returning again in Summer for sure, the room was great value for money and the balcony on the beach is a great PLUS. 15minute walk from town centre - good to have car in Winter.

Room Tip: Ask for room with sea view
