This was my first spa retreat at an Accord hotel. I recently became Accor Gold member and always wanted to visit this part of France. The location of the hotel is absolutely ideal. Close but not too close to Dinard. The panoramic views of the hotel are breathtaking. So are the views from the restaurant, the bar, or the spa facilities.
Check-in was smooth but not particularly friendly (no recognition of Accor Gold status except for a free drink voucher which is interesting for a 6 days' stay that costed me about €3,000).
My room, superior with terrace, was ready when I arrived (around 4.30pm), clean, and very well located with a nice patio and two lounge chairs.
Every day, cleaning of the room was superbly done (thank you very much to the maids). You would expect more every evening in terms of service (chocolate, for example) but it was clear management had not adopted a policy of recognizing and rewarding loyal Accor customers. Not a big deal. Just a remark. Other hotel chains of which I am also Gold member (Starwood, Hilton and Marriott) will do much more.
The room was recently renovated, calm, comfortable. The bed was lovely. Bathroom was good. Loved the fact that there was a separate restroom.
Wifi was free, fast and reliable.
The spa treatments were lovely. I had a special sleep program which I thought was oustanding. I enjoyed each and every minute of it. The facilities are really superb, clean and modern. The staff is nice, overall (some will be more on the hasty side but that is fine).
The fitness area is a bit small but not crowded.
The main restaurant is serving excellent food: the breakfast buffet is outstanding (loved the oysters in the morning). Dinner is healthy and tasty (loved the Thursday buffet with all-you-can-eat seafood).
The staff at the restaurant is remarkably kind and efficient: they will go out of their way to please you.
I participated in two activities: visit of Saint-Malo and of the Mont Saint-Michel. Both were conducted by Jean-Pierre, an extremely nice man who is very knowledgeable about the region. Absolutely loved my two visits.
I also signed-up for the Bach flowers consultation with Brigitte. What an extraordinary woman! I highly recommend this add-on (60 €, well worth it).
Overall, I loved my stay at the Novotel Thalasso and cannot wait to come back.
I have just one tiny suggestion: please consider showing special hospitality to your most loyal customers (Accor Gold).
