Comfortable hotel in interesting resort
Posted Jun 14, 2016
Stayed for a week in June on a room only basis.The hotel is only 15 minutes by taxi from the airport and a walk of 5 minutes down the hill to the old port area which has lots of bars and restaurants. Pleasantly surprised by the elegant buildings, mix of French and Spanish culture and food in Biarritz. Most waiters are able to speak a little English. Lots of interesting places to walk and wonderful sea views. Quiet at the start of the week, but the second half coincided with the annual "Waves and Wheels" festival (surfing and biking) with noisy motorbikes roaring around the old port area and bikers congregating at specific bars. The bikers caused no trouble but they detracted from the ambience of the town.
The Tourist Office provides information about the local bus service to places like Bayonne, a mediaeval walled town which is good for a half day visit, but there were no organised trips available in early June e.g. to La Rhune.
