Beautiful location and spectacular view, service could use improvement

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Ag Couples - 03/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Beautiful location : we were astonished with the beautiful premises, well decorated and nicely designed, and the location so unique and peaceful. Spa services are above expectations, pool and jacuzzi make all the difference on the overall experience. Small remark regarding the parking spots available behind the building with easier access to the room at the end of the hotel, but just below huge trees and their nests of birds, which resulted on our car being completly covered with feces at the end of our stay... Spectacular view : from our ground floor room with direct access to the beautiful garden and amazing sunset sighting

Hotel dealt very well with Covid restrictions and the in room dining from the restaurant was excellent. Duplex suite well appointed but room a little narrow. Needed another metre in width.

Wonderful surprise!

My second visit and it won't be the last.Brilliant,superb,beautiful,I'm running out of adjectives.The room was excellent with sea-view:even In January it is well worth it with the ile d'Aix in front of you.The restaurant served us delightful food and the wine list is comprehensive. All in all a good stay.

marialouisewarne2018 Couples - 08/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

No one could have done more to make our stay perfect than Mr Monin and his team! The moment we walked through the revolving doors we were treated like royalty. New years eve gala evening was wonderful and on Saturday I had the best birthday ever! I have already booked for St Valentine's weekend and can't wait to go again. The only thing I didn't like was getting in the car to go home 😪

Dear Ms Warne (your Royal Highness), dear Monsieur, How to say ? Thank you so very much for your loyalty, you have been staying with us so many times and it is always a pleasure to welcome you both. Our reward is to make you comfortable and read your comment about your staisfaction. We hope that we can see you at La Grande Terrasse more and more often. Everybody here at the hotel and the restaurant Gaya thank you very much for your kindness. We are all looking forward to seeing you soon, Kindest regards, Yves (aka baby chef)

Very good team running this hotel. From Reception to Restaurant you are well looked after with smiles and fantastic food. Rooms very clean with great views out to sea. The gardens are well planted and provide a good place to relax. Did not use the Spa and pool but they look really good, maybe next time.

Dear Sir, dear Madam, Thank you very much for your kind comments on TripAdvisor. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel MGallery. You onviously experienced a lot of services, but there are more ! Looking forward to welcoming you back soon, Kind regards, Yves Monnin

We have stayed for 3 nights.We have enjoyed a dinner at the GAYA Restaurant and a dinner at the wonderfull brasserie. (all the family had a great time in the brasserie , even our little girl)The SPA is absolutely incredible : warm water , outdoor jaccuzzi in front of the sea. We have tried shower with crushed ice after a pleasant Hamman ... very surprisingVery nice place and very nice time.We recommand !

Ocean View Hotel

simondC593JU Couples - 05/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

Hotel room and location was excellent,concierge great job with collection and showing us round the hotel. Breakfast was superb with friendly and welcoming staff.Leisure facilities of the spa were excellent.House Keeping again superb and no issues on the ball as teh saying goesBad bits Bar and restaurant (lunchtime and evening) is a big problem, stopping hotel residents from using the terrace as apparently having private parties has the top priority, Dinner no English translation and lack of continuity when the breakfast menu has,lack of interest from staff unwelcoming and very serious issues, I had to deal with this with hotel manager as unacceptable and hence the score I have given has let down the rest of the departments of high quality

Take In The View

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

obnoc Couples - 01/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

M by Soffitel is an excellent property with unrivalled sea views. Bar and restaurant average and overpriced which would explain the numbers leaving to head for the excellent and more reasonable local alternatives. Rooms are on the smaller side with ridiculously small wardrobe facility, but I would highly recommend for the view!

The perfect gateway

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Adiaha Family - 31/07/2018 TripAdvisor review

Stayed for 4 nights with my kids. Everything was near perfect - the setting, the village, the facilities and amenities and the staff! Liked the junior suite duplex with its breathtaking ocean view. Dinner was well worth the reservation. The staff were mostly attentive and helpful. They offer a shuttle service La Rochelle station, also well worth the reservation.

Very nice hotel with idyllic location and vue

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Audrey D Family - 24/05/2018 TripAdvisor review

Cjatelaillon Plage is a charming seaside small town very close to La Rochelle and Ile de Ré. An ideal spot to relax, enjoy sea view, beautiful inside/outside swimming-pool with wonderful NUXE SPA installations, and also to visit the area with less than 30mn drive. Nice experience at Gaya for 2 dinners too after busy days, it's confortable to have dinner at the hotel. We had a Junior Suite in Dupleix very bright with a wonderful view over the sea and swimming pool, accessible through a nice garden. The only deception was the breakfast where service was amazingly long and buffet often empty with no refill unless we asked for. The fresh orange juice was gazeifeid, and not as fresh as one's could expect in such a high snatding hotel. We'll definitely come back hoping these small details will have improved by then.

nice location, small rooms and teething problems

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

553joey Couples - 10/01/2018 TripAdvisor review

following a hefty refurb this is a smart hotel but the rooms classed as superior are dark and small. the facilities in room lacking. no room service menu no minbar etc. service underwhelming. tried to assist but so disorganised. restaurant not open till 730 and no bar food til then consequently putting pressure on staff and guess kitchen such that service very poor. I want to return but been put off by the service and small room. so many teething issues and no real manager seems to be in charge
