- This is France—so don't expect the staff to be all smiles
On a small private island on a peaceful lagoon overlooking the Mediterranean, you’d be hard pressed to find more exclusivity in the Roussillon region of southern France. Hop on the hotel boat or cross a small wooden bridge, and you’re greeted by sleek whitewashed walls, red roofs and flower-filled gardens. These give way to airy, pillared interiors punctuated with hand-picked contemporary furnishings, rugs and artworks.
Completely renovated in 2012 by architect and designer Kristian Gavoille, the hotel subtly blends modern technology with natural materials. Whether enjoying divine fusion cuisine, taking a dip in the rooftop pool or relaxing in the Thalassotherapy spa, here you’ll find an overwhelming sense of privacy and calm.
How to Get There
We spent one night in the hotel ille de la Lagune and this was a desaster. The room was dirty, the black hairs in our bed from another person uncredible and on top - we had to carry our luggage at arrival and departure by ourself!!! This hotel is for our opinion not a category of 5 stars - not more than 3 stars.
The restaurant was very good for dinner - good quality. But the breakfast was terrible, we had to make our expresso by ourself and the ham smelled like dead animals.
Never in our live we would come to this hotel!
We booked one night here due to proximity to Collioure and we found an amazing property surrounded by water. It is a 5 star hotel so you get the attention you pay for. Be aware that the restaurant seems to be quite famous so if you plan dining there better book it in advance.
We booked here for a night to celebrate our wedding anniversary, ended up staying two ! We were made very welcome in all areas , the food was simply some of the very best we have had in france . We would like to thank the whole team for such splendid service , we will be back
We have been to hotels all over the World including The Burj Al Arab in Dubai. This hotel is far better than any of them and only a short drive from home! We were greeted personally and given nibbles and drinks then shown to our suite. Hand written messages, wishing my husband a happy birthday, were a nice touch as were the mini sweet treats. The location is stunning as are all the facilities. The private beach, rooftop heated pool, restaurant and bar terrace were my favourites. Tranquil and restfull. I never wanted the 2 day stay to end... We will be going back...
We booked into this hotel for two nights in August and then returning four days later with another couple to end our trip .
The food , beds etc were lovely but the spa which is why you would book this hotel is not a service available ,
so beware if you are choosing to have a spa treatment .
On my first visit they said they were fully booked ( spa is only open from 9 ? to 12.30
And 2.30 to 6 so it is hardly a 5 star service )
When I asked to book two massages for my second visit I was told they could not do any .
I said ok , I need to cancel the bookings then for 4 people for two nights as I am unhappy to be in a 5 star spa hotel with no spa availability.
They asked me what I wanted and i said two Swedish massages and they said ok we will not be able to do at the same time but one at 2.30 and one at 3.30 on Monday.
I accepted this and arrived for my massage to be told I was getting a relaxing massage .
I said no I booked a swedish massage .
Anyway they could not do and eventually the compromise was they credited me some breakfasts and offered one massage at 9.30 the following day .My friend took this but
I was very unhappy having paid for an expensive hotel to not get what I expected .
