Le Cap Est was comfortable and the staff were kind, but this is not a 5 star resort. It's dated/worn and small, but in a nice, boutique-y kind of way. The restaurant food is good, but very expensive. Would highly recommend driving 5 minutes out to the main road for drinks/dinner at La Ferme des Orchidées (still somewhat pricey, but better food and atmosphere for slightly less money.) Lunch at the hotel restaurant was good (limited menu) but very pricey for lunch (two salads and two appetizers for 95 euro - not even with drinks!). Buffet breakfast was good and had good variety.
Le Cap Est would be a nice home base if you were planning to be gone most of the time (but even then, the hotel is *very* far from anything else - 30+ minutes to drive to any kind of tourist area/restaurants except for the one mentioned above), but if you are planning to stay on site and enjoy the pool/beach, you may get bored and go broke. Also, there are no bars open from 2pm-6pm from which to order drinks should you want a pina colada while you lay in the sun.
