We selected this hotel as Tripadvisor gave it a number 1 rating. We stayed 7 days including Xmas. I can summise this hotel very simply....outstanding food, some of the best ever, outstanding rooms, beautiful views and a very relaxing spa with all the facilities. However, this is not a 5 star facility, good but not excellent . The chef is outstanding and you cannot fault it is any way, breakfast is an event and could keep you going all day. We experienced Xmas lunch and had one of the best meals EVER. My critiques include limited understanding of the English language, a problem for ordering food and especially room service, I would expect more linguistic skills outside of French from a 5 star hotel. Service is slow, regardless of service ordered, my simple room service requests took nearly an hour even after I reminded them I was waiting. The pools, inside and out were a big bonus along with the free gym sauna and hot tub were very pleasurable. The hotel is about 40 min walk for the center of everything, but only a cheap taxi ride , about £3 one way. The beach is only a 5 min walk and excellent , only the nagging vendors spoil it, but they ignore you if you can simply say NO.
Hotel room staff were great, making the room up twicea day, including water delivery, candles, chocs and turndown service.
I did however make one complaint to management, local dogs, possibly security dogs seem to bark most of the evening. This did disturb me a lot, but not as much as the smoking. The web site states there are designated smoking areas, in fact the entire hotel is a designated smoking area,bar, pool, restaurant, rooms, reception , just about everywhere and it seems that all the French visitors SMOKED!!! Avoid this hotel if you do not want smell smoke, I would have not come here knowing that smoking was allowed everywhere.
Our stay gave us everything we looked for, it could have been better if English could have been understood and service a little faster .
