“Unhigenic and disturbing environment”
Reviewed March 22, 2010

Despite its good location, my husband and I were astonished by how filthy this hotel is. When we arrived on our first night, we found urine on our toilet seat and animal vomit on our bathroom rug. The meals were characterized by an invasion of untrained cats and birds. One cat sprayed (urinated on) my chair during a meal. The pet pelican defecates all over the hotel so the morning experience is marked by dodging feces on the way to the breakfast area. Finally, the "management team" has an observably disturbing relationship with the staff marked by a perceivable mistrust and lack of respect. The manager is clearly more interested in her animals than her guests. We were very happy to leave this hotel. I must point out that the local staff was friendly, but that did not redeem the experience.

This little hotel is by the sea, near the airport. It is owned by a French woman, who is very nice. The hotel is beautiful and it is in a nice setting, facing the sea, but on the downside, the mattress is not really comfortable. Moreover, while we were there, there were works at the hotel, so we had to put up with a lot of noise. Besides that, the balcony of our room was not private. Another issue to take into account is that if you like animals, there is no problem, but if not, you should know that the owner of the hotel has a pelican, a dog, two cats and two parrots. Béatrice (the pelican) walks around everywhere, so you can run into her when you go down the stairs or when you come out of your bedroom. Furthermore, one of the parrots makes a lot of noise while you are having breakfast or dinner at the hotel’s restaurant. We like animals, so for us it was not a problem, but we think it is fair to inform others who might not enjoy the experience.
