Cote Thalasso Ile de Re
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Ars-en-Re
Reviewed 1 June 2016 via mobile

Clean place and quiet
Location is not convenient so you need a car. This being said you can use their available bikes.
Breakfast is 12€ but frankly a bit of a joke, grad a bike and have breakfast somewhere else.
Friendly staff.
Value for money = ok.

We went there just for a relaxing afternoon in March, after months struggling with personal stuff. We were in Ré, so why not try this place.

From the very beginning, when booking by phone, to the moment we slammed our car's doors to leave, the experience was great.

Friendly staff, from the reception to the locker room, including the person who actually took care of us: always minding about your well being, courteous and smiling.

Price range is average for this type of place, as are some facilities which may need some improvement/renovation works, but nothing dramatic in my opinion.

- Two saunas with enough room for everyone to enjoy without waiting for their turn,
- a big hammam with actual steam and heat, nothing like the other place we tried, near Paris, that woulds simply blow a small steam cloud like a kettle, great for skin preparation,
- a saltwater heated pool (highly recommended: it has streams, you can just relax or hold on to the rail circling it to exercise)
- two showers to get rid of dead skins, and,
- a sundeck.

The afternoon entry also gives you access to the spa (basement) which we did not have the courage to try (cold water and we had already spent some time in sauna/hammam/pool, but it's definitely worth it.

There were no surprise you do not want to have when going in such places, like closed pool, reservation lost or something. The staff was on time for our "algae skincare" session.

We did not sleep nor eat in the hotel, this review is solely based on the thermal baths/spa experience but if you are visiting the island and are wondering where you could go to treat yourself and enjoy a relaxing afternoon, I would recommend this place!

Came for honeymoon, on arrival staff unhelpful, no drinks apart from water and tea of the day available until 7pm. Spa faculties pathetic, really smelly, jacuzzi water horrid. Room very basic, asked for water and tea making facilities, staff were very rude. Felt unwelcome and would NEVER return !!!!

Staff very helpful, nice and welcoming is the only positive note for this very tired and sad hotel I cannot recommend to anyone visiting the island for pleasure.
Room was large, bed uncomfortable, bathroom very tired.
The room was at the ground floor and overlooking a backyard parking...very sad.
Give a miss to the outdoor pool and go for a walk.
We hired bikes and asked to keep them one full day from afternoon to the next afternoon, and they refused saying we had to pay two half days, which is much more expensive and not the common procedure in bike rental shops on the island.
Even only one night was really too much and overpriced.

We have been coming to ile de re for 10 years and this is my worst experience, well to be fair my only bad experience really!
We stayed here for 1 night and it was already too long!
To start with positive notes:
The staff was lovely, very helpful and smiling made us feel really confortable.
The food at breakfast was nice too.
But that is it.
The hotel is run down, very sad and old fashioned.
The old carpet in the corridors smells of chemicals, like in a hospital, the same smell in the bedroom and in the very "tired" lift.
The room was big and so was the bed which is also a positive note I suppose.
The walls were dirty so was the floor ( made out of strange plastic) it all needs a coat of paint. The bathroom was small and dirty mould on the walls and round the tape! Disgusting.
Unluckily we had a room with a view of the bins ( noise at night)
It must have also been the back of the kitchen/delivery bay because of the beeping reversing trucks early in the morning ( no sleep in for us).
The breakfast was nice but not organized at all. Queues appeared because things were not in the right places to get a good movement around them.
The worst part was the outdoor pool not maintained at all, broken tiles, green in the bottom with red and black mould all around the edge. We got in and out in 5 minutes.
Stay away from this place at 150€ a night!
Theft in my opinion.

Last minute booking on a 3 week tour of France.
Decent hotel, easy to find, well signposted, comfortable bedroom, and grounds.
Restaurant functional and over-priced for dinner.
Breakfast basic and staff pushed to cope with turnover of guests and new "supplies".
Bike hire expensive but enjoyable and to be recommended.
Spa centre amazing and salt pool, steam room, sauna, etc wonderful way to wind down the day.
