This was a 4 night stay as part of a Brittany Ferries holiday. The hotel is perfectly acceptable, but very isolated. You need to drive to the beach, shops and restaurants. The room was spacious with a big bed and balcony.
Breakfast is fully self service, and the counter is against a wall so only one side can be used. So a bit manic at times. The scrambled eggs were excellent on two occasions. Beware unfathomable toaster, and the two otherwise identical coffee machines where the 8 possible selections were on different buttons!
Dinner is complicated. It is only available by pre-reservation. If you are not on half board you can only have the a la carte. The food was good and averaged €60 a head plus drinks. The dining room is somewhat soulless. Pre diner drinks are also complicated. Someone has to be despatched from the restaurant to serve you, and though there is a drinks menu the staff are largely undertrained, so the result is very hit and miss.
The outdoor swimming pool has been heated, but is unloved and lightly used. On the two occasions I used it I had to get someone from reception to unlock the access gate, wind off the cover and remove the automatic cleaner. However they did this willingly. It has been heated, but all heating and filtration is now turned off! I wouldn't like to say what it will be like in August. The main lift broke down for 3 days during our stay, but there is another that can be used, which is normally for the apartment block adjoining.
We did not use the next door spa, but a swimming cap is compulsory if you use the indoor pool there. For many it is the reason for using this hotel. I thought the towelling robes at breakfast were a bit much! One further caution. I have seen it advertised as a no smoking hotel, but it isn't. Lots of full ashtrays by the pool, and we couldn't use our balcony for the cigarette smoke of others. There is no air conditioning in the rooms so leaving the balcony door open at night was a must....after the neighbours had finished smoking.

This hotel which is connected with a spar is really relaxing.

Booked the hotel late after bad experience at another hotel in the resort. Friendly and welcoming staff ensured we had a room to suit us. The room was spacious as was its balcony. The spa is as good as it gets with an enormous pool and all the usual add ons. the restaurant provides a first class menu and our waiter was able to explain all the dishes and suggest a wine to taste. Th hotel is near the beach and the excellent golf course.We would have liked to stay longer.

Pleasant stay over. Couldn't fault it for value. We arrived late at reception and a pleaant lady greeted us at near 11pm at night. We settled the kids quickly and managed to get a drink from the porter even though the bar was closed. Well deserved after 8hrs in car that day. Staff were very courteous and helpful although I was woken by a laundry truck outside our room at 6am!

Room Tip: Rooms could do with a bit of a makeover but very clean.

We stayed in the Best Western apartments for our family of 6 on our last few days in France before we travelled up to Cherbourg to boat. This area broke the journey all the way from Dordogne for us. We were delighted with our apartment. It had a v big double room and bunk beds and a pull out sofa in the living area with a good kitchen and loads of storage area-so much so that mine took to a game of hide-and-seek straight away!! The hotel has its own entrance for apartments which is great as we didn't have to go through hotel each time, but reception were very helpful if needed-we hired a child's bike from them as they were v helpful. The hotel is at the end of beach near golf course but we had bikes so it was perfect for us to cycle on the brilliant cycle lanes along the prom and back. We drove into the town for dinner each night. We did try the thermo spa area and kids are only allowed in pool at certain times. As it's sea water and not v exciting for kids mine didn't want to do it again. Men need speedos for this area!! But we would definitely recommend these apartments for families who don't want to stay in campsite, it's perfect.
