“Very Basic, but cheap!”
Reviewed 24 October 2009

Very basic, good location, but for less than £40 for two nights what do you expect?? Beds were broken, bed linen was hard to come by, reception hardly ever open. There are better PV-Holiday locations in Biarritz that are better.

Last floor, nice view from the wide balcony.
Even though the bedrooms were not gigantic, we were able to squeeze in a 2bedrooms.
The hotel includes a swimming pool and a park for the children.
It is not a hotel, it is a vacation rental room with any type of facilities (fridge, dishwasher and so on...)
Convenience store is 5mn away from Maeva.
Always had wonderful experience with Maeva.

Of what I remember, there was nothing to complain about this place.

Reviewed 30 September 2008

Just returned from one week in this hotel/apartment complex. The views from the hotel are beautiful, overlooking the ocean and the mountains in the background. Clean, and plenty of space for a family. Have three children aged 10, 8 and 5 and would recommend this hotel to families. Staff were friendly. The supermarked is just across the road along with Pharmacy and internet access. It takes about 15mins to walk to the centre of town and great location for the airport. Taxi cost €16 to airport and bus to St Jean de Luz stops at the end of the road. Playground and pool on site but much larger playgound 3mins walk. Only downside would be that you have to walk into town to get access to a beach which has lifeguards. The waters are very strong so would not recommend children swimming except in designated areas of beach.

  • Liked — Views and location
  • Disliked — Reception hours, facilities and lack of any English speaking TV channels.

I stayed here this summer and found it good value for money.

Good points:
The apartment was clean, the staff were friendly and helpful and there was no issue having our deposit refunded at the end of our stay. There is a tv, and fully equipped kitchen. dishwasher etc
Close to beach & bus stop
2min walk to great kids playground (and beach)
20 min walk to town centre
1 min walk from cheap well stocked supermarket "Leclerc"

bad points:

no washing machine/dryer in apartment.

Costs 8 euro to wash and dry a load in on site laundromat.
You are provided with a bath towel per person and a hand towel which you must wash and dry yourself.

I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Very poor Self catering apartments, rated as a 4 star, but would be better rated as a 3 or even 2 star. The apartments are located 20 minutes walk or 5 minutes by car to the centre of Biarritz. Nearby there are a couple of very nice beaches. Rooms are basic but functional, with a sofa bed, two small single beds, small television with terrible reception ( and no satellite channels), dishwasher, grill/oven and 2 hobs.

The mattress didn’t fit the sofa bed properly and continuously slipped off onto the floor. There is no internet access. If you want your room cleaned, you have to pay for it. In fact, you want anything basic you have to pay for it! Use of the washing machines, clean linen, tennis court, crazy golf etc. On leaving you are expected to clean the apartment yourself or get charged a cleaning fee of 40 euros.

Overall, if this was a 2 star apartment, you wouldn’t be surprised with what is on offer here. But for a 4 star, it is heavily overpriced, and lacking any comforts you would expect for a 4 star. And we got a cheaper rate for October.
