A quiet and restful spa break

Posted 27 Jan 2015 on Hotels
Marvellous spa stay to cure any January blues! Friendly personel ready to please and help (extra pillows). Excellent restaurant with fine French haute cuisine, catering for all tastes in a smart décor. Superb breakfast. Warm swimming pool and lovely spa facilities. We recommend you book your massages and spa appointments in advance as very popular. Beautiful walks from the hotel to nearby beach and quaint Ars en Ré village. We'll definitely go back there.

Hard beds, great restaurant, didn't try the spa

Posted 21 Sep 2014
We chose this hotel for its location only. Four nights on their hard beds were tough. I think Europeans prefer harder beds than Americans. No shower curtain, so it was a big precarious getting out of the shower with water on the floor. We ate lunch at their restaurant, prix fixe. The food was wonderful. Fresh, delicious, sophisticated. Breakfast was OK. The weird part was people coming to breakfast in their robes, which was encouraged. I didn't have a chance to try the spa, but I will try to the next time I'm in the area. I just wouldn't sleep there again.

Pleasant stay

Posted 21 Jul 2014 on Hotels
I like this hotel for inside and outside swimming pools and the SPA access. It is the second time I choose this hotel but this time I was disappointed by a noise of water in the pipings every night. It seems to be the restart of the air conditioning.

Hotel near family staying In house in vicinity

Posted 11 Jul 2014
Pros: Being on my own, I felt very comfortable and welcomed.
Cons: The paving stones around the swimming pool really need attention. Many are unsafe.
Location: Loved the beach, the cycle tracks, the wonderful market, and such attractive streets, houses and flowers. Wonderful.
My son booked a week for me, he was renting a house with his family near my . I was very pleasantly surprised, I had a very large comfortable room. As I ate with family apart from the pool I didn't use any of the hotel facilities. Full marks must go to the reception staff, my queries were all answered quickly and in superb English.

Beautiful stay in Ile de Re

Posted 7 Aug 2012 on Hotels
The hotel was great, very friendly, a lovely pool and they were very accommodating of our requests for heating food etc for our 18month old. The are is beautiful and Ars en Re a really lovely town with a great market, Perfect for a long weekend or longer, we want to go back and explore the beaches and other towns on the market and wouldn't hesitate to stay at Thalacap or recommend it to it to others.

Faded Grand Dame

Posted 6 Jan 2012 on Hotels
This hotel was probably once luxurious but today is faded and out of date. It reminded me of a holiday camp for middle aged people! Pluses: great sauna/pool/steam room facilities, friendly staff Minuses: room decor (very 80s with a random cupboard featuring a non-functioning kitchenette, smell of damp in the bathroom) Probably much nicer during main tourism season, we stayed during winter.

Beyond all expectations

Posted 27 Aug 2011
As we approached the hotel we didn't quite know what to expect. But as soon as we walked through the entrance, from the warm friendly greeting and the pleasant surroundings, we knew we had made a great choice, to stay there. The room was comfortable and clean with doors opening to the outside area which gave access to an outside pool and a short cut to the reception and bar/restaurant. The Thalassotherapy area was equipped with every treatment imaginable and a heated indoor sea water pool and Saunas / steam rooms. For 20 euros each we had a 2 course meal and glass of wine in the restaurant which was nicely served, fresh and tasty. The breakfast buffet was also fresh, well presented and plenty of choice. Can't wait to go back again, hopefully for more than one night next time.

Too much dog poo and pee on grounds. Too much smoking going on.

Posted 19 Aug 2010
The staff cannot be faulted. The room was a bit grubby but not so bad as to warrant a complaint while on holiday. The room had everything you would need. The bed was extremely comfy and she sheets were crisp and cotton. Fellow guests were friendly. Although we think it is delightful that people bring their pets, it is extremely off putting to watch them all peeing and pooing on the grass whilst we were having our breakfast. One aged dark labrador came out every morning from his ground floor room and peed and pooed on the lawn, where it all remained throughout our breakfast. Not pretty. Maybe guests could take their pets outside the grounds or to a certain 'lavatory' area??
