Alright hotel, not overwhelming.
Posted Jul 28, 2015 on Hotels
This hotel was highly rated but was a little underwhelming. The room we booked was their most expensive option and was listed as housing 4 people. It had a comfortable king sized bed and a twin and something smaller than a twin and a very small TV. With the baby sized bed quite a bit of the room was occupied. The most noticeable thing as soon as you walk into the room was that it was heavily perfumed, I've experienced this before and I'm not sure if that is how they deal with turning a smoking room into a non-smoking room but it was overwhelming and I had to leave the door to the exterior open all day to help freshen the air. The room we had had a nice view of the Mediterranean but it also didn't have a balcony which most of the other rooms did. The breakfast was pretty standard for Europe meaning for an American it was very light, there were some breads and sliced meats, yogurt, granola/muesli, coffee, cheese and the only option for hot food was you could boil your own eggs. The grounds were nice and the pool area was clean, the pool is smaller in person than it looked in the pictures. The hotel is kind of in between beaches and Collioure. Collioure is totally worth checking out, it's only about a 10 minute drive and it's kind of like a French Hampton Beach or random small tourist beach town. Overall the hotel is nice, I think I might have given it a higher rating if I hadn't booked last minute and paid too much for a room that was smaller than I expected it to be.
