We enjoyed staying at La Montagne because of good facilities and friendly staff. Services was sometimes slow but that wasn't really a problem as where on holiday an took it slow ourselves. The food was great!

Room a bit small and the shower did not work properly maybe because of water pressure. Overall experience very good. Service good and friendly staff. Enjoyed the spa treatments. Will recommend the resort.

We went for a 3 night weekend break and it was as fantastic as ever. We stayed in a brannew refurbished studio, a bit small but still very stylish and well done. I will always recommend La Montagne as it is right on the rock and the sound of the waves just makes the stay.

Nice stay, the beds were amazing. The room was disappointing, the main bedroom did not have any privacy, the bathroom was terrible. The service from the waiters was disgustingly bad. Could never find someone to take an order. The pool area was lovely, and even though we are not kid-friendly, the atmosphere with the 10AM Freddy dance was really cool....

What was ok: location definitively is best of all, swimming pool is okay, staff was friendly and willing to help. What was not: rooms very aged (it seems that this hotel was the best 20/30 year ago, but will poor maintenance since then), worn latches (difficult to close), rooms badly cleaned, furniture deteriorating. Trying to see in a good perspective,...

I have been to 25 countries and never experienced such a pathetic standard for a 3 star hotel. Very angry! On the first day of arrival we checked into a room with a few lights not working , the cupboard door falling off, the stove knobs broken so couldnt turn it on, the front door lock worn out so had...
