We have stayed in Arcachon three times now so know our way around. This hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the main beaches. However, you can get to the nearest beach just opposite the hotel. The board walk will take you right into the main part of town which is much nicer to walk than along a busy road. The hotel staff were very helpful and even lent us a phone charger which we forgot. The room was clean, big double bed (possibly king size) and all mod cons. Unfortunately the shower did not stay on its bracket well enough to use it hands free and the window wouldn't stay open at night as the curtains were shut but other than that a good hotel. Would definitely stay again.

This hotel is well placed for magnificent beaches and many activities. Unfortunately the location of swimming pool next to restaurant terrace (we felt like the entertainment). Agree with other comments, needed to squeeze through conference delegates and the smoking terrace, is the only way to get to the pool.
The restaurant was excellent, but if you wanted something less extravagant, there was no alternative. Room service would have been helpful. Fortunately good local bars and restaurants not too far away.
Whilst appreciating that early June is not in the full season, it was disappointing not to be told that major construction work was underway to extend the hotel. Tower cranes overlooking the pool not ideal. We may well have changed our booking if we were made aware.
This is an excellent hotel, with good well trained staff. Possibly suffering from a conflict in identity. Is it a beach hotel, a conference venue, a 'destination' fine dining restaurant? At times the hustle and bustle in public areas detracted from the ambience of the hotel as a holiday venue.
Despite the worst storm in living memeory, The accomodation was extremely good. fantastic view from our apartment of the sea though more difficult if you are on the 1-3 rd floor. Casino next door is an archetectural wonder. The underground parking is 7 euros per night which boosted the price but did not effect ouyr stay. Beack is 100 yards and you can wander aimlessly taking in all the sights

The oldest resort on the Côte d'Argent, Arcachon luxuriates in magnificent white sandy beaches. Attractive colonial-style villas sit amid the tree-covered hillside of the exclusive 'ville d'hiver' (winter town), overlooking the 'ville d'été' (summer town) and the town's beach. For adrenalin seekers, the exposed southern beaches have great conditions for surfing. Nearby, Europe's largest sand dune, Dune du Pyla, towers 114 metres high.
