we stayed at the papillon belvil at the end of april 2011 and we couldn't have been happier with what we received.
the grounds are immacuately kept with lots of trees, plants and fountains. the room we stayed in was down a path which went from the pool past the tennis courts, it was very quiet at night whilst still being close enough to the restraunts, pool and bars. the room was clean and a good size, especially as we were only there for an hour or so a day and to sleep. the room also had a balcony which was really nice for when we came back after being at the pool bar at night.
the food was really nice especially seeing as my partner and i are such fussy eaters. although the food felt abit samey as it was a buffet but it was all really nice every night and there was a man outside who cooked different meats and fish fresh for you. the main resteraunt itself was reallly nice and spacious with pleanty of tables. it has an indoor area which is kept cool and an outdoor patio which has music playing at night. the main resteraunt is also open until late at night which is great if you get a bit peckish after drinking :) there is also a mini buffet at lunch at the pool side bar which includes burgers and chips and ice cream (although it says its for the kids they dont mind if us adults go up and get some lol) if you stay here make sure you go and see the pancake woman who makes fresh pancakes with sugar, and also see the man who makes pizzas with any topping you want - all of this is included in the all inclusive aswell. the hotel also has several al a carte resteraunts although we didnt get to try these as they were not open as we went out of season.
the beach is at the other side of the pool and is very clean, although the only small issue is the pebbles between the sea and the beach which can get a bit painful but its only for a second so its not too bad. it definately won't ruin your visit to the beach.
every night there is some sort of entertainment on at the ampitheater. the night starts with soemthing for the kids where they all get on stage and have a dance, they even get the adults up to do the club song and dance which is a laugh. one night whilst we were there there was a group of acrobats who were running up and doing backflips of a single pole in the middle of the stage - very impressive. theres even kareoke in the pool bar after the show.
the staff are amazing and you cannot fault them. they were so helpful and really helped make the trip what it was, the manager even came and had a chat and a picture with us towards the end of the trip. the pool bar staff a really good, having a chat and a laugh with you, they even made us cocktails (make sure you try the belvil special and pink lady) althought there was one rude waiter who made no effort at all but we just tended to avoid him and ask other members of staff.
don't listen to any bad reviews you read on here about papillon belvil as we'd read them before we went but all our worries were put at ease straight away :)
