Good hotel in excellent location right on the beac

3 out of 5

Posted Jun 10, 2016
Pros: Comfortable bed.
Cons: Can't do anything about the noise from the road but the digger outside was an absolute pain!
Location: Excellent location for beaches, Biarritz and Northern Spain.
We stayed two nights at this nice hotel on the way back to the UK from Southern Spain. Fantasticically comfortable bed in recently refurbished room. Small room and bathroom but everything needed for a short stay. Good food in restaurant and reasonably priced. Only downside was the noise from the road and from a digger moving sand into lorries right outside our bedroom window from 8 am until 6 pm! We would ask for a room at the other end of the hotel away from the road if staying again.

Lovely hotel close to the beach

We stayed for 2 nights on our way down south. It was out of season so it wasn't really beach weather although the view from the room was great. The room was very comfortable and clean and I would definitely stay here again. It is a little bit out of the town but there are restaurants close by if you want to walk.

What a gem.

Posted Sep 25, 2013
Pros: The location is absolutely fantastic - right on the beach with not even a road to cross.
Cons: Nothing important but a couple of times the shower gels were not replaced.
Location: Several restaurants within walking distance which offered great food at very good prices. Easy to explore the coast and the mountains.
Really pleased with this hotel. It was quite small (only 28 rooms) but this meant that you got good service. Rooms (with balcony and sea view) were well equipped and included tea/coffee making facilities. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Buffet breakfast had a good choice and represented value for money.

Vue magnifique

3 out of 5
by from Bordeaux
Posted Apr 6, 2016
Pros: la vue, le son et l'odeur de la mer
Cons: ascenseur inutilisable après 22 heures parce que la partie centrale étai fermée. C'est trop tard pour changer la tailles des chambres
Location: station balmeaire en Pays Basque - mer et montagne très agréable
Deux nuits hors saison mais la vue sur la plage et le surf est magnifique et chaque chambre beneficie d'un balcon. Parking trop petit si toutes les chambres sont occupées Chambres petites surtout si elles sont occupées par 3 personnes (il y a un 3ieme lit que nous avons utilisés pour nos affaires)
