8/10 Very good

Le site est magnifique avec une superbe piscine et l’étang juste derrière. Le staff est très accueillant et accommodant. La nourriture n’est pas au niveau malheureusement, manque de qualité et de variété (en 5 jours 2x burgers et 2x moules frites). Peut être la seule possibilité pour un all-inclusive, mais prêt à payer plus pour plus de fraîcheurs, plus local quitte à avoir moins de choix mais plus de variété d’un jour à l’autre.

2/10 Poor

Forget it, look somewhere else!
First of all, finding the place was a real nightmare as the supplied coordinate is not even an actual address. Then, once on site, finding the reception wasn't an easy thing either and we had to ask a nearby hotel for help. Second of all, check-in time was desperately long; it took well over 30 minutes waiting in line at the front desk. The apartment itself was in a deplorable state: the beds were not even made, the floor was disgustingly dirty, the cooking area was also dirty and the underside of the cupboard was very greasy, most likely because they did not even bother to install a range hood, the supplied dishes were not clean and there was no soap nor any sponge to clean it up and, finally, no towels were made available. We did however appreciate the nightly, sometimes overwhelming, frog concerts! Conclusion: forget it, look somewhere else!

2/10 Poor

Disgusting - don't bother
The hotel is in need of serious modernisation. The rooms are very tired and ours was filthy. The facilities are equally run down. Can't comment on the restaurants; we couldn't bring ourselves to eat in them.

6/10 Good

Maeva is a fairly large holiday camp a few miles from Arles. From the info on this site I was expecting half a dozen rooms around a pool. The place and facilities were ok if a bit run down. Staff were friendly. Meava is probably a great option for families but was not what we were expecting.

4/10 Fair

Expensive and poor service
This is no hotel as you know it. For a TV in the room you had to pay 19 Euros (for 4 days and French channels only). No cleaning done for you, instead you have to pay 8 Euros for a cleaning kit. Otherwise you must pay extra for cleaning done for you. No towels are provided: if you do not have yours then you must pay extra to hire some. At night we discovered that one of the beds was missing its sheets. So not a good experience all round. It was also disappointing that the restaurant closed at 9 pm which meant that we went without food the first night as we arrive at about that time and that we did not have a car to back to town, 4 kms from town. The bar closed early at 10 pm. The furniture was adequate but fairly basic. The swimming pool was rather grubby. Finally the reception staff although friendly did not appear very knowledgeable about the services the hotel could or could not provide: although the hotel publicised the possibility of hiring bike, this facility had ceased to exist on their premises!
