Built in 1993, this establishment was bought by the Vacances Bleues group in 1999. Thanks to the large bay windows in this boat-shaped building, the common areas benefit from a lot of natural lighting. Whether you are at reception, at the Passerelle Bar or even by the pool, natural lighting fills all of the spaces, which are rather roomy. The decoration is classic and simple, but what families really love are the services available here. To start with, there are all the different clubs for children during the school holidays. First there is the baby club, which welcomes infants and toddlers from 3 months to 3 years old. The spaces dedicated to it are completely adapted for these ages and include an area for games, an area for sleeping and an area for meals. 6 half-days cost about £65 and should be booked when checking in. As for the other clubs, they are all free and divided into: P'tits Nosors for ages 3-6, Castors for ages 7-10, Juniors for ages 11-13, and a Teen's World for ages 14-17, where the teens get to decide with the activity leaders what they want to do (go for a walk, go on a scavenger hunt, discover the region, etc.). Not to mention that every year the various activity teams compete with each other to propose new options. During the 2012 Easter holidays there was the "grand récré", which was 5 days of recreational activities (fun and creative workshops, games outdoors and picnics) and 1 day of homework and revision. The hotel's other major plus is found on level -1. Here you have the 1,200m² aquatic space that includes an indoor-outdoor swimming pool (you can swim from one part to the other), a sauna, a jacuzzi, a gym, and 8 treatment rooms where Thalgo products are used. The possible treatments include a traditional Californian massage, ayurvedic body wraps and massages, hot stone massages and a multi-jet whirlpool with sea salts.
Art lovers will appreciate the hotel group's support of artists. All of the hotels have pieces that have been collected all over the globe. Here we have a painting by Lui Xiaocheng, a Chinese artist, decorating the reception. What they probably won't like, though, is the multicoloured carpeting in all the hallways. Apparently it hides the dirt better. However, they should be gone by the end of January 2013. Let's hope so!
