... but is now a collection of shops and cafes. Gambling on the chance that one would be able to get good coffee there we stop at Café Hegoa and enjoy a welcome cuppa. Walking on we found a pleasant place on some rocks to while away some time and enjoy the sun. It was with some regret that we left to catch the train, without incidence this time, back to St Jean.
Once we had dined and packed we couldn't resist a final tour of the harbour by night. St Jean is a very pleasant place to ...
... cold! We got to our hotel room and we had 2 double beds, and one night I slept with dad and pushed him out of bed. We went to the beach - it was so fun, and hot and lots of waves - I call the big waves storms. I wanted to go swimming straight away but we went for some dinner. Tomorrow I will go and splash in the ...
... shopping and little bars. When we were settled in it felt good to cook our own food and stay in one place for a while and have a break from 'travelling.' Luckily we were right near the ocean and in the middle of Biarritz and every day we went for a walk along the rocky cliffs and around town to see what else we could discover. There was sadly no surf for Tom so we had to find other ways to keep entertained. In France baguettes and crepes are eaten very regularly. Our favourite crepes ...

Walking up and up the hill that she told us to go up seemed to take ages, but getting to Carrefour supermarket was worth it. Clean, normal, like home. Bummer about not having any fresh ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Hotel Biarritz
Very good hotel 5 minutes walk from some fantastic restaurants. All reception staff are very helpful and their knowledge of good local restaurants was great. The only drawback was the 21 euros for a fairly restricted buffet breakfast. We had it the first day but afterwards walked to the center (5 minutes) and ate in a patisserie with coffee and other breakfast drinks for a third of the price.
Good comfortable town centre hotel
Stayed for 2 nights in December 2005 (had stayed previously when hotel was Crowne Plaza) Paid 122 euros including breakfast each night. Stayed in a twin double bedded room. Room very spacious and well equipped. Hotel is situated in a quiet area of the town. Town centre is only a 10 minute walk away. Hotel has its own underground secure car park. Only down side was the breakfast. Staff didn't see to be able to cope when the breakfast room was moderately busy. Buffet regularly ran out of basic items and staff didn't seem to know which items to replace first.
I stayed at the Radisson SAS with my girlfriend for 10 nights in early September. The hotel is, as most Radisson SAS, very mordern with efficient and helpfull staff. The best things about the hotel were the size of the rooms and the rooftop pool. We had two double beds in our room, a large desk and a seating group, lots of storage place for our belongings and all the amenities we needed. If you need something extra just call the one-touch-service...
We spent a week at the Radisson SAS in Biarritz and couldn't fault the experience. We had spacious accommodation and the service was first class. Recption staff made every effort to be welcoming and informative, even ringing around restaurants for us to find vegetarian meals. The adjoining spa is outstnading, great equipment, lovely hot tub and frequent fitness classes with first class trainers. All these carried a local charge but were exceptional value for money. Food in the Radisson was excellent, wtih good quality regional dishes and excellent bread! The outdoor pool was a welcome treat during an unseasonably warm week. Biarritz is a gem and the hotel complemented all the other pleasures we experienced. Highly recommended in the price bracket. I'd be very confident about this chain since staying at the Biarritz location. Well done!
We arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm & were checked in quickly & efficiently. The very pleasant & helpful staff were putting out umbrellas for guests.
Great Hotel and great Staff
I have had the pleasure of staying in this hotel three times in the past year and I have to say "it was great". The staff at the hotel were most helpful, especially the concierge, Marlene, who booked us an excellent restaurant for every night we stayed there. I found the location of the hotel excellent, especially loved the roof top pool and bar with its fantastic views. I found the food in this part of France the best to be found. I did e-mail the hotel prior to my arrival to check if it was possible to check-in early, as my flight was quite early, and to my delight and my friends, our rooms were ready with a sea view also. I definitely would recommend this hotel.
Good food, quiet location, but with easy access to the beach, and town centre. Very pleasant public areas and quality and unobtrusive staff, who were always helpful. Booking through the 6-Continents (Holiday Inn) web-site seems to be as good as any. Not only tourists there, even in July when we went, but well used by french people as well, both as tourists and using conference facilities - which is saying something for an american style hotel these days!
Lots of game-playing with rates, room selection etc.
Rates are not nessesarily what is advertised or offered. Breakfast included? or Not? No one was certain.The Crown Plaza is blocks from the ocean. Sea view is only possible...if you stand on a very tall ladder, can see over or around buildings between the hotel and the water.I recieved no less than three e-mails from the hotel in which they apologized for making "mistakes," on quoting room rates.I cancelled and stayed at a beautiful hotel...on the sea, for 2/3 of the price of Crown Plaza, parking and breakfast included....in Saint Jean du Luz.
This hotel is a mixed bag. On the positive side, the staff are very helpful (they let me keep my room until 5pm as I had a late flight) and speak good English. The restaurant is good and the pool on the roof, whilst small, would be good fun in Summer. There are sea views from the front rooms, partially blocked by the building in front of the hotel.
I treated my partner for his Birthday with a brief weekend at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Biarritz and what better way to spend it with Breakfast in Bed, a coastal stroll, a choice of 'taste-bud tantalizing' restaurants and to finish it off with a few drinks in the comfort of the Hotel bar. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly.... and also spoke English, even though Beer is pretty much a world-recognisable word!
