The location of Hotel de l'Ocean is very good. Very close to the beach, and to the paths along the sea. I really enjoyed the seafood dinners in the cafeteria. Brilliant eating! Breakfast was a bit limited, but OK for me, but my wife who is sensitive to gluten didn't have much choise.

An old fashion style hotel in wonderful location on main square. Room was reasonably spacious and very clean. We booked a room without a view that opened from an inside patio/small courtyard thinking this would be on ground floor. Unfortunately it was not on ground floor though there was a small lift which we used to transport our cases, however,... More

This is a nice hotel placed near the ocean. Some rooms has sea view, and a small and nice balcony with table and chairs. The rooms a clean and nice with stylish decor, and are quite spacious. The ocean view is fantastic, in windy days the waves are huge. The staff is nice and friendly, A good place to stay.
