“October 2012”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Even though the hotel sits off a main road, it was very difficult to find as the name on the hotel sign (La Fregate) is diffferent from the advertised name. That said, we were welcomed by a very hospitable staff at the front desk. The entrance was very clean and unpretentious. Elevator and stair access was easily accessible. The rooms all face the huge beach. The view includes part of Biarritz homes on the adjoining hillside. Unfortunately as the hotel faces Northwest, sunsets are not as spectacular as they can be. Our room was clean, tastefully designed and very modern with lots of electrical outlets, a modern bathroom with a great towel dryer/room heater Water pressure was decent. My main issue with the bathroom was the smell. There is always an odour from I'm assuming the septic system that eminates from a vent. The rooms come equipped with a safe, flat screen tv, comfortable beds and closet. The balconies are a decent size but do look a little worn as I'm sure the salt air and moisture degrades them quickly. Internet access is excellent. One suggestion is that the owners can install mini refrigerators in the rooms, apart from dealing with the smells in the bathrooms.

We stayed in this hotel for one night before travelling up the road to a camp site for ten days. The room was very clean and beach hut in style and the bed was huge and extremely comfortable. The single/child's bed was separate to the main bedroom area and a sliding door could be shut so privacy was not an issue!! The view from the balcony was incredible as the hotel is right on the beach. The proximity to the beach is perfect for families with children as you step out of the hotel and down a very short path and you are on a family friendly beach with bouncy castles and slides as well as a swimming pool on it all for a relatively small charge. The bathroom was really modern and very nice but the only down side was the fact that there was a smell in the bathroom after use but their were some works being done to the sewerage line nearby so this may have been an unfortunate, but temporary, effect of that. The room did not smell at all despite the bathroom. Overall We were very impressed with this hotel and would return again if in the Bidart area!
