My partner and I stayed at Le Mail Plage for a week at the height of the French holiday season. It's a basic self-catering hotel in a great location – 100m from the beach and a similar distance from shopping for essentials and the daily morning market (for excellent local produce and tat). There are cafés and restaurants within touching...

Just returned from a week with hubby and our two adult daughters, only booked a short time ago through Cottages4You. The apartment was very spacious on two levels, set at front of block, it was clean and tidy but just somewhat tired. We took our own bed linen and towels. The guy in recepiton was always very polite and friendly,...

I wasn't sure what to expect after reading reviews but was very disappointed. We found reception staff to be unhelpful and unfriendly, and when we complained about anything all of a sudden they lost ability to speak English. We booked through Welcome Cottages and it stated we had a terrace. When we got there found only 25% of the rooms...

We were staying in the Residence La Mail Plage 2005 and it wasn't very clean at the time. Still we booked again (prices are really low) and were pleasantly suprised. The supplied linen was whiter than white, individually wrapped in a plastic bag, the apartment was spotless! We arrived outside the opening times of the reception, but no problem, the...

We found Mail Plage upon friends'recommendation. It was lovely, it's not a massive resort, so you meet people, the pool is nice, the flats are quiet, cosy and nicely decorated. We appreciated having meals on the balcony and getting out sometimes to wall on the beach or cycle around the island. By all means, Ile de Re is a great...

If you fancy a lovely and quiet holiday : head for the Ile de Ré, away from Cote d'Azur crowds and trafficjams. We stayed in a 2 rooms flat, self-catered (plenty of lovely restaurants nearby) with a balcony. I loved seating outside, reading and just relaxing while my husband went on roundtrips cycling around the island. The place has a...

Great place, friendly staff! We stayed there 2 weeks with the missus and the kids. Kids loved the pool and the island. Missus enjoyed the balcony of the apartment. The residence is well situated, we loved it so much, we already booked for next year, although in July when it is less crowded.

Let's get a few things into perspective here, bearing in mind the almost universally dire reviews this accommodation has received. Residence Mail Plage is strictly budget accommodation and should be reviewed in that light. We are a family of five who got a non-camping holiday on the Ile de Re in August for less than £1700. I think that's pretty...

Not sure where to start really. Never stayed in anywhere like it frankly! Stayed for one week. The apartment was miniscule, dirty and most of the 'rooms' didn't even have a window! The linen and towels were extra and some of the towels had not even been cleaned properly. We ended up cleaning our apartment ourselves on arrival and departure...

We went for one week last year to the same hotel when our experience was quite good and the service was excellent. We loved the resort itself so much we came again for 2 weeks but booked aparment 38 which is the biggest and probably the best. It has 3 bedrooms, bathroom, shower room and toilet and will sleep 8...
