Reviewed July 23, 2013

I would warn naïve foreigners of this place: it is run by a whole group of very unfriendly and incompetent women who first charge even more than the price that has been announced online but would not accept any cancellation.
What it really is: an apartment block in a very ugly place of town next to fun park and McDonalds, a family resort for low middle class french families and youngsters.
Very unwelcoming to foreigners. And there is that nice piss smell between parking lot and room.
The apartments are clean and spacey, and very, well functional. There is an outdoor area, equivalent of a balcony, but with not too comfy plastic chairs. Not too much for the price.
Yes, there is a smallish pool. Oddly sourrounded by an ugly fence inside the resort.
Yet for the one good thing, the beach espiguette, a car is required, and it takes a while to get there.
After eight on a week day there is nobody and nothing, not even anyone to buy beer or water from.
One has to buy a can at the neighbouring "commercial area" beside the roundabout. Yes, that indeed looks and feels as nice as it sounds.

Room Tip: First check if there are ugly urin smells on the way to the room, but well, they are there, and the...

On the whole the holiday was great. The kitchen was adequately equipped and with a bit of organization you gotten with 2 hotplates cooked a meal for 2. In addition, the facility was gesichtert through a fence and thus secure parking for the car was available. Each apartment had its own parking space. The plant is too far away from the beach and town center. It runs about 20 - 30 minutes to the beach. As a tip: bring or rent bicycles on site

Room Tip: The location does not matter, the hotel has a great location.

Perfect holiday apartment for 3 person.
I liked this apartment.
Nice hot and powerful shower.

Location is bit far from the city center but very close to Supermarket and Mac.
Little bit pricey but spacious and it has towels and linens included.
WIFI is quite stable...in this town WIFI is poor even Mac wifi stops sometimes.

Room Tip: Use booking site...otherwise it is too expensive to stay here.

Stayed few nights at this place while visiting neighboring towns with my family. Great if you have car, no way if you don't: the property is outside city center and is perfect if you like self-catering. We didn't stay there more that to sleep, so we felt comfortable.

The property provides breakfast, but we didn't use this option: there is supermarket in 2 minutes drive from that place.

Well-sized swimming pool is good.

Ikea-style very functional furniture. The 2-bedroom 2-level apartment was spacious.

Be aware: no AC!

Otherwise decent and roomy property, suitable for families.

This yaer we've vistited this place with a group of 16 persons. The room was full of insects (cockroaches), they did nothing aigainst it.

We 've alsobooked a warm meal every day. This was really a disaster. No dinner, no food, dirty, a bad cook who has to do everything. No management to lead, really a disater. A dinner which tasted bad took more than 3 hours untill it was ready.

Please search an other place? For us it is the last time. We've booked the place with Neckermann. But theu also dit nothing against it. So don't take Neckermann or Cap Med for your holidays.
