We were booked into another Aquis hotel (Aquis Blue) for a holiday spanning the end of August and start of September. Despite booking in February, a few days beforehand Aquis Blue contacted us saying that they were double booked and that they could only offer us a split holiday with the first few days in Blue and then moving to Bella Beach. We refused and the eventual compromise was that we stayed in Bella Beach for the entire holiday. For that reason we will never book with Aquis again (for any of their hotels) and hence our low rating reflects the organisation rather than the Bella Beach hotel itself.

Regarding Bella Beach itself, our experience was one of extremes. The staff were polite and friendly to an extreme that puts them beyond anything we have ever experienced in 30+ years of holiday experiences. Quite simply this staff team are exceptionally skilled and very well trained and we can’t praise them highly enough. Another real positive was the quality of the food which was truly excellent.

On the down side was the noise of the entertainment/animation. While the animation team themselves were lovely and really made an effort, the constant techno/dance music at ridiculous volumes (day and evening) was at a level where at times a desire for quite conversation meant a walk to the beach to get away from the constant din. Almost exclusively aimed at the predominantly French residents (who, to be fair, lapped it up), it was not for the faint hearted.

To be fair to the hotel, a family with young kids could hardly do better than stay here and adolescents and young adults alike will likely really enjoy the place. But if you want a quiet and relaxing holiday then Bella Beach is not for you.

Stayed August 2011, travelled with friends

We have just returned for our holiday at Bella Beach, the hotel staff could not have been more welcoming and could not do enough for us. The location of the hotel was wonderful a nice walk to the local village. Lovely food everyone one catered for, we would definitely return and would most definitely recommend this hotel to everyone.
