"We stayed for 2 weeks at this resort with our 2 small children aged 2 and 5. The establishment is beautiful and the surroundings very well kept. The pool is amazing and suitable for every age from baby to adult and the flora around the pool is stunning. The beach is a short walk away and also very well maintained and beautiful. We stayed at a family apartment which was fine, it had everything you need but the furniture is a bit dated. All in all we had a wonderful stay. We sometimes cooked ourselves and sometimes went to the restaurants. The food was very good overall. Also breakfast was lovely. I’d like to particularly point out the animation team which was amazing. Our kids didn’t go to the kids club but still they came round to chat and to inform about the daily activities (of which there are plenty not only for kids but also for adults). Pippo, Eduardo, Mike and Esther are a wonderful team and made our stay even more pleasant. If I had to change one thing that I would probably enjoy a smile from the reception staff. "
"Pros : 1-Warm and Profesional welcome in English and French 2-Very nice location (lots of trees and plants) 3-Nice pool suitable to swimmers and small kids 4- Restaurants (Pool restaurant, main one AND beach one) are great. We did appreciate the service in all these places. The beach bar is particularly nice ! 5- Direct access to the beach is easy and nice (through a forest) 6-Apartments with kitchen so you don’t need to go to the restaurant every day. Fine for the fit and the bank account :-) 7-BigArt animation team is nice ... of course they take some room and are loud but remain gentle and friendly. Cons, or to be improved : 1-Kids are not allowed to dive in the deepest area of the pool (close to restaurant) 2-Our room looked a bit outdated and the amenities are very basic ... especially when you think about the price to pay 3-Sound isolation should be improved as, from time to time, you feel like your neighbors were in your dining room :-( 4-Lifeguard on the beach (the older one) should be more polite and friendly. 5-The pool (holes in the bottom, surroundings) needs refreshing "
"On arrival the hotel looked fabulous, the reception, main toilets, bar, restaurant and pool areas are excellent. The rooms however are appalling, they looked tired, very dated and smell badly of damp. Our room had so many faults, I lost count. As a tour operator, we have stayed in hundreds of hotels all over the world, this place is NOT four star, at best it is 2 star. However the staff are helpful and indeed fixed many of the faults in our room, including fitting a new bathroom door within a few hours! There were no towels in our room, no kettle, no welcome pack or details of how to use the phone (I.e. what numbers to dial.) We booked a family suite for five people, only one bed was a bed, the rest were camping beds, one of which had no pillow and no sheet! Bathroom tiles and worktops were cracked, extractor fan caked in dirt, only one toilet roll provided (for a family of five) propped on the bidet as the holder was broken. The shower curtain was stained, the air con was dripping water and the chest of drawer knobs mismatched. These are just some of the faults. Advertised as a self catering apartment, if we had been self catering we would have struggled, no microwave, no tea towels, no washing up facilities and the very bare basic minimum of cooking equipment. The fridge appeared to be leaking constantly. Two of the camping beds were placed either side of the kitchen table. The room is very dark and the window of the bedroom looks onto a weed infested patch of dirt surrounded by a shabby (not at all chic) paint peeling concrete wall less than two metres from the window, so minimal natural light. Do not believe the website / brochure pictures, we have looked and their are no pictures of our type of room and they have many “family rooms”!) Attached are some true pictures of our room. We asked to be moved, they refused, we then asked for a partial refund, they refused. They offered a free evening meal however we could not take it up due to the restricted restaurant opening hours. In summary, if you want a 1960’s holiday camp experience at 2019 over inflated prices then this is the place for you, otherwise avoid at all costs! "
