One of the Topotel group, this modern apart-hotel has both apartments and hotel rooms. It serves breakfast but no other meals.
Our stay got off to a bad start – we had booked (through Locasun) an apartment with a double bedroom and a room with two single beds for the children. Instead we were given an apartment with two double beds and were told that what we had booked wasn’t available and Locasun hadn’t told the hotel what they had agreed with us. Moral: Don’t book through Locasun!
The apartment is bright and spacious with good quality furnishings though there are no wardrobes in the bedrooms and no drawers anywhere!
The kitchen has a 4-ring hob, combi-microwave, large fridge-freezer and a dishwasher. There is enough crockery/cutlery for four place settings. It is fine for breakfast or a snack but serious cooking would be a challenge!
We had a very large balcony overlooking the attractive pool area complete with table and six chairs.
The pool area is well equipped with sunbeds and is thoroughly cleaned every day. It made a nice place to relax between outings, though the pool is cold!
The immediate vicinity is not attractive; modern offices, light industry and university buildings. However, a short walk takes you to the Maritime Museum docks, past the Aquarium and on to the picturesque old harbour. The attractive Les Minimes beach is a pleasant 25 minute walk away, beside the modern marina. The nearest supermarket (Spar), bakers (and McDonalds) is 5 minutes walk away. There are loads of restaurants around the old harbour, about 10 minutes walk away.
The pool and accomodation is great for families and it's near to the picturesque old harbour.
