The Splendid occupies an imposing concrete building and, as many other hotels along the coast, it lacks charm. True, the entrance hall is large, is furnished with modern and original items, and includes a bar and a chandelier that would look nice in a castle, but the seaside atmosphere is missing, and despite the large bay window that looks out onto the sea, so is proper lighting. The same interior could be found anywhere, by the sea or in the middle of a city. However, you just have to step outside to confirm that you're staying in a seaside establishment. The beach is just opposite the hotel, as is the swimming pool, which gives you 4 bathing solutions: 2 indoor pools, one of which has a waterfall and is more adapted for children, a large outdoor pool with deckchairs and sunshades, and finally the biggest and most enjoyable one, the sea! To entertainment guests of all ages there are tennis courts, beach volley pitches, and a well equipped children's club that welcomes kids aged 4 and up for £4 per day.
But the true strong point of this hotel resides in its spa, which would make any luxury hotel proud. It includes 15 treatment rooms and massage parlours, and an "organic" sauna, with wood and a fire in the centre of the room, the floor of which is covered in sand, giving you the impression of being on a sun-drenched beach. There is also a highly comfortable relaxation room (a pity about the music though), and a fitness centre for those who want to expend some energy before or after relaxing.
