The hotel is situated in Carnac Plage an area full of cafes and little shops. There is a lovely beach and some good coastal paths. The hotel has a salt water indoor pool and outdoor spa facility. Guests may use this freely and there are a plethora of treatments which can be signed up for, for payment. There are free water aerobic classes most days that are well taught, fun and give you a good work out. The restaurant is excellent with a wide choice of food including special dietary menus. Well worth a visit and the staff compliment the hotel with friendly and attentive service.
We spent one night at this hotel and it was perfect. Our room was quiet,clean and spacious. I slept very well but my husband found the bed hard, this is a frequent complaint,he likes a very soft bed. We spent Saturday afternoon in the Spa, which was quite busy but none the less very enjoyable. Sunday morning breakfast was lovely, we had a table by the window overlooking the water and the quality and quantity of the buffet breakfast couldn't be faulted. Sunday morning at the spa was a much less busy than Saturday afternoon. We left feeling very relaxed.
Here are the good points: Location is good very close to the beach and you can walk for miles along the beach Staff are always pleasant and professional Restaurant quality is excellent’ we enjoyed the sea food night and various dinners Now for the improvement needs : Breakfast is badly organised, there is a queue even at 7 am or when you can see free tables. There is always something missing, the coffee machine is running out of water regularly and you have to chase the staff to get it refilled...something that you shouldn’t see in a 4 star Rooms are dated, the stairwell in dire need of painting Not sure we would go back there but all in all it was a ok experience
Shabby ‘four star’ (!) hotel - sea view???- should have gone to spec savers (!) though we were charged for the view. An overpriced, average clinic-like spa Very disappointed - I do not recommend this rip-off !
The Thalasso is what it promises: most products Bio/Organic in the Spa, the plastic in which everything is wrapped is from potato flour and thus very easily recycled. Toilet paper recycled, washing powder organic soaps and shampoos organic etc etc The booking through Manuella was a true wonder, she found me exactly what I needed! All people handling the 'soins are so very nice and open and cheerful. The entire staff seem so positive and so professional. The masseuses, the spa beauté, the people handling the different parts of the Spa, its all one big 1à on 10. The sea water swimmingpools inside and out, with al the bubbling springs, the tisane given freely all day long, its a dream come true. The reception personal is very helpful and very forthcoming and nice. The rooms are impeccacble , The restaurants are too very good, the food is amazing. I ll mention some names: Fabienne/Ewan/Corinne/Emiline/Cloé/Maxime/Anne/Nathalie/and many many more! (sorry if I forgot your names ) There is ONE thing which breaks my heart though. In this 100 Percent Ecocert Place ()the only one in Europe they serve NUTELLA!!!! With the whole of Indonesia suffering tsunamis and earthquakes and total deforestation and also helped by by NUTELLA and TOTAL, I wander ; Could you please the serve the délicious chocolat paste a 1000 times better and organic, made by the Chef ? Or Nocchiotella? And Organic eggs and salmon? And organic Milk and brown sugar? And Organic meat and Cheeses? Locally there must be Permaculture and small farms I would think? The only food Bio in the restaurants are the HUITRES and they are fabulous. The wine choice too is very very good with some very nice Bio Dynamic and Organic wines. I feel reborn after 4 days here. Thank you whole staff I ll be back ... if you take away Nutella from the breakfast table ;) THANK YOU I hope the new Director will keep the Eco and Organic side growing for this wonderful resort on the amazing coast of Carnac!…
