As a family of 4 with children of F12 & M15 we found the Papillon a great place to stay.
We initially stayed in 2 twin adjacent rooms, which were comfortable and quiet. (We had expected an apartment, but due to our mistake in UK with the agent booking us initially onto wrong island and the arrangements needing to be changed at the last minute, etc., we had in fact booked the twins.) However, we asked if there were any apartments free and fortunately were told there would be. After day 2 we moved, which was great as we were in the busiest time of the year.
The apartment was large and airy. 2 bedrooms, (1 twin room and 1 with double & single beds), balcony looking over the pool, kitchen/dining area and bathroom...with bath which proved invaluable for those long cooling soaks. The 1st floor front entrance 'veranda' gave a nice overview of the side streets shops and restaurants. A kettle and hob plate was provided, along with a fridge, cups/glasses, pan and cutlery. Enough if you really want to cook for yourself, instead of utilising one of the many reasonably priced and substantially menu'd restaurants!
Breakfast was sufficient for the climate, Coffee/Tea/Hot Chocolate/Juice, bread, ham, cheese, cakes, plenty to see you through most of the day.
The pool is the biggest in the town and the pool bar is well stocked for both snacks and drink. The large clean pool area has plenty of sun-beds and tables and is a nice quiet little sun trap set away from the towns sights and sounds. The beach is only about 100m across the road if you want the sand between your toes.
We hired a car and there is parking at the hotel which was convenient and reassuring.
The front desk is occupied 24/7 and everyone is very friendly and helpful.
Nikki especially looked after us very well. From our initial room query to her invaluable local knowledge, leading us to find the cool blue waters of a quiet cove, nothing was too much trouble.
They say that a great holiday has nothing to do with age, or even cost, but everything to do with where you go and who you go with.
Well, you can't do much about your family ;-) ... but coming here made it great for us !
