5 star stay
Absolutely perfect. A genuine 5 star resort even on a U.S. comparison. The property is super clean and tastefully decorated, the rooms are huge and have everything you need. The staff make the hotel and simply cannot do enough for you during your stay. We traveled with our 3 & 4 year old and grandparents, who all absolutely loved our time at the hotel. The location is superb, a walk to anything and everything you need. The food and drinks are probably the best we had anywhere during our stay in La Rochelle. The bartenders make slight variations to your cocktails each day and the kitchen cooked off menu for our little ones, fresh pasta and pesto for lunch. We will definitely return and would recommend to anyone.
