overall a good experience
Posted Mar 17, 2016
Finding the hotel and gaining access to your room after the specified registration hours can be quite tricky and time consuming. Once you've gained access to the building, however, the overall experience is good. We asked for a room facing the harbour which gave us a nice view. In March there were limited options vis a vis restaurants, even for breakfast, and the hotel breakfast wasn't as good as many we've seen. Later in the season, however, I suspect the place will be a hot spot with more choices. The hotel is somewhat isolated but a short drive took us to Argeles and Perpignan, both of which offered restaurants and a good samplingof culture and local colour. Perpignan is worth a visit and in Argeles we happened to catch an annual festival including a fantastic local parade. We'd stay at the Residence if we were in the area again. The price was reasonable and the room was terrific.
