Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Unbelievable property with a view to die for! We had an ocean view room which was really special. My only critique is that the hotel is a little dated. I understand it is hard to have it look new when it is an older property and I think every attempt was made to have it look fresh and clean which it did. We enjoyed it and the extremely helpful staff! They were just so professional and so friendly.

A little off the beaten path, but right on the beach and next to the grand hotel in Biarritz. Beautiful views and large rooms.

Disappointment
Very disappointing, the hotel is in desperate need of entire renovation, tiles are falling off the balcony, hinges of glass balustrades are rusty, paint is peeling. Carpet in the corridors is badly stained. The hotel is certainly showing its age and it does not seem to have been touched up or renovated in many many years. The room and bathroom decor is very dated. The furniture is showing it’s age through scratches, torn and stained fabrics in both rooms and public dining areas.Pool needs a complete revamp. On the upside though the staff are very pleasant and accommodating, service is excellent, however, they seem to be very apologetic about the state of the entire hotel. For the price The Hôtel charges which is between 600 to €700 per night it is absolutely ludicrous to what is being offered in five star hotels in many parts of the world. I would certainly recommend to avoid until the hotel will be thoroughly renovated within the next two years as I was told. Subsequently my wife and I checked out much earlier than we had planned.
