This was our last hotel on our French tour and after previous five hotels being so good this had a lot to live up to.. And it did!
We were given a family room looking out onto the swimming pool. The room had two bedrooms, one double and one twin, a toilet and a bathroom, nothing too amazing but it was clean and hospitable. We had a nice terrace with a table which looked out onto the lovely pool area. The pool looked very welcoming, but it was the wrong time of year for a dip as we would've frozen! There was also a spa pool which was warm, so that could be used. The pool area was very nice with plenty of sun beds and was actually a great place to chill out.
The hotel is also opposite an amazing beach area... Truly beautiful. There's also a beach bar where you can eat and have a few cocktails.
The hotel is based on the island outside of La Rochelle and its a beautiful place to be, there are many old French villages, plenty of places to eat and gorgeous beaches. The hotel is a gem in a beautiful place.. Definitely recommended.

Lovely hotel to just relax right across from the large sandy beach. We had a family room with pool view. We just walked out of our room into the lovely pool area. Had breakfast on our terrace one morning. The staff were very easy going. If you rang up for anything it was just done. The restaurant is closed on Sundays & Mondays, which we wasn't very impressed about, but overall the hotel is very nice, if you want to relax. Pleased we stayed on the island, & not in the town

After searching online found this hotel but didn't book it. Instead we drove to it and booked. Then the price was 10€ more expensive. No problem we took it and asked if we could park our car inside. That would have costed €10, so mentioned the online price and got the parking for free. However, the receptionist realised that there was no space anymore. She promised to inform us when a place became available. That didn't happen though. Only before going to bed and asking again suddenly a place was available...
The room with view on the parking was the cheapest. Glad we took it, because the pool view was almost double the price. You would have to accept guests walking in front of your terrace...
That room is ok, seperate toilet and bathroom. Safe with a too easie to guess code as it contains the room number and it can't be modified...
There is a bar but is only open during the restaurant hours. A bit pointless...
About the restaurant read my seperate review.
When checking out another person was at the reception, so I feared that the parking fee would be added in addition to the cost of the lamp that was distroyed in our room. Neither were charged.
So, all in all : mixed feelings.

You have to be aware that the main road off the il de re can become a complete 'bouchon' at times- like the day we went - Mother's Day. After sneaking round minor roads we arrived in time for our booked lunch but our relations from la palmyre were over 2 hours late and the chef had gone home by the time they arrived!
Anyway the food and service was very nice and there is a nice view towards La Rochelle and on our day the crawling traffic in front of the hotel.
The special menu was good value and had lobster which was well cooked in spite of the unnecessary filo parcel.
Throughout the service was friendly and professional with the staff well aware that we were waiting for others and managing the service well in spite of that. Angela and phil had actually stayed at the hotel before and recommended it as somewhere to stay.

We stayed here one night and it was very pleasant. Our room was compact but very comfortable with a nice little balcony overlooking the sea and the pool. Everything is spotlessly clean. The staff are all very helpful.
There is a restaurant attached to the hotel which is excellent and should not be missed. We had a very good dinner here with very good service.
