6/10 Good

Average 4 star hotel could do better.
Location right on beach lovely. Hotel layout and indoor pool also a plus. However apart from good staff at bar, the restaurant and reception staff were only average. Restaurant food was average to poor for a 4 star hotel with the exception of the Friday night seafood buffet.

Opportunity for more children activities. Easier access to gym (key never worked). Pool was too salty.

Great hotel, great facilities, great location
Great hotel, great facilities, great location. Friendly staff and warm welcome. Not the best beach for swimming (strong tide, lots of old iron mussel/oyster beds), but very beautiful. Indoor seawater pool and other activities more than compensated.

Tranquil hotel in great location
The staff were very friendly and helpful. They provided a good selection of gluten free food. It was a good location to hire a bike and explore. Eating outside by the sea was fantastic.

Lovely hotel!
Having been stuck in traffic for nearly 7 hours, due to the farmer's strike, we didnt get to the hotel until late evening. It would have been a nice gesture to offer a complimentary drink, and we had to make use of the tea/coffee facilities in the room (which consisted of one tea bag, one coffee sachet and a herbal tea bag only). The room was satisfactory, and we had a small patio (with table and chairs) outside which was quite dark because of the shrubbery. There was ample toiletries, and a fridge (which contained a small bottle of complimentary water). The food looked very nice, but we found the menu and drinks to be expensive. The best feature of this hotel is it's beachfront location which is absolutely wonderful. It was very relaxing and tranquil. The staff are friendly and i would highly recommend the hotel.

Beautiful location
Quiet location, private beach. Public Oleron beaches can be very busy and inaccessible. Popular with French families. Mix of old/young. Good facilities and food. Spa treatments expensive. little English spoken.
