I stayed at the Hotel De La marine on the 15th June with my 13 year old son on a tour of the D day experiences, the location of the hotel is beautiful, stunning even looking out onto the beach, however it kinda ended there. From booking the hotel i checked online they had parking as they advertise they do, alas its small and easily filled by two cars so we were advised to use the public car park across the way at cost to ourselves (no biggie) hoping for a view out to sea we were actually given a room down a side street with no view or ambience at all, a shower that flooded the whole bathroom, but comfortable and quite bedroom. We then decided to go for a drink on the ample deck overlooking the sea, the one waiter serving 20 people was failing badly, 20 minutes before we got served (im patient but some people were coming and going during this time), we had one drink and asked for another which never came so we decided to leave and have a drink at the bar opposite this one, really bad show for a french bar by the way, the other one was more than happy to see us. Then dinner came, 12 euro for soup 24 euro for steak 24 euro for half a bottle of wine and i think 12 euro for my sons burger... i dont mind paying for good food, its all part of the experience but to be honest including my sons drink our meal was just under 100 euros, its wasnt bad food but im my view it was noway worth the price, they are taking advantage of their location, on top of this we both felt rushed as the waiter couldnt wait to get us out... not what i expect in france at all.. in hindsight the same bar we ran too before had a two course dinner for 18 euro each which looked just as nice.... its a shame as stated before the location is stunning and the female staff very friendly but come on 203 euro for one night and dinner for two!? flooded bathroom, no parking, 12 euros each for breakfast!!! simply not worth the cost
