Naturism is allowed everywhere given that the hotel is based inside the main gate of the enclosed resort. Hotel Eve also used to be the only hotel but in the last few years, 3 more hotels have gone up (including Hotel Oz Inn and Jardin Eden) and this may push Hotel Eve into improving standards even further. The Hotel is pleasant and has a great pool area, and the staff are excellent normally i.e. very friendly although the cost of a stay is arguably a little expensive for the outdated decor.
Tip: When booking try and ask for a Poolside room. The views are much better than if you have a room looking over the car park! The rooms tend to be very clean and overall this is a good option for accommodation at the resort.
Review: “We spent about 5 days in Hotel eve. Most importantly the hotel is comfortable and the prices are fair I
would say definitely value for money. I think it is an excellent refuge for people that have had long nights and want quiet days (breakfast is served until 11:30). Pool is good and the rooms are quite clean with air cons. I think the rooms are OK but slowly need renovations. Would I go back? Yes most certainly. Nadine is a very nice lady”.
“I sent an email about 4 months ago, even though the hotel was officially closed, and received a prompt response. Even better, if you are nearby (at least not in Australia as I am) a telephone call is even better.” – The Hotel usually closes for the winter time!
“The Hotel location is excellent given that it provides a quieter place to get a good nights sleep compared to the likes of Port Nature and the 10 minute walk to the beach is enjoyable if you like to stretch your legs each day. The
walk to the beach and only about 500 meters from the other facilities. My wife and i liked the location because we always enjoyed the short walk.
The hotel itself in the past has had a monopoly because it is one of the few hotels and compared to the prices and facilities in the camp site, it is not the best option perhaps. Many people do return though to Hotel Eve so perhaps it is best to try it and decide for yourself?”.
“Hotel Eve has a great pool where it’s easy to meet people from all over the world – clothes free of course. And it’s only a 5-10 minute walk to the restaurants like Le Bistrot in the Port Ambonne strip – and also the clubs like Le Tantra, Le Juls and Le Glamour (further away – 15 minutes).
Mandy and Terry: We’ve been there twice and wanted to go back, so that should tell you how we feel about it. That’s not to say it’s not without areas that could be improved, but I don’t want any of the following to put people off.
The rooms we’ve stayed in were adequate but not overly spacious. The bathroom did the job, with a bath and a hand basin. The only thing to say about the toilet is that the water boiler is usually above the loo so don’t stand up too quickly!
There’s a small fridge in the room which we normally fill with drinks from the supermarket as it’s a lot cheaper, plus a tv. There are no tea or coffee making facilities but the bar is open practically all day and will, I think, serve coffee as well as alcohol. The rooms normally have a small balcony, if you’re lucky it overlooks the pool, if not it’s the car park at the back, although still not really a problem. There are electric blinds which keep the sun out and keep the room cool. There is also air conditioning in the room.
There is a sauna, we finally found it last year, it’s on the first floor but we didn’t use it.
Breakfast (which isn’t included in the cost) is continental style and usually very good and plentiful, it’s a good way
of meeting other people in the hotel too, although of course you can go off site for breakfast too.
One of the main selling points for us is the pool; there are usually enough sun beds around it, and the pool is lovely and warm and no kids hogging it (sorry kids!). The staff are friendly (if a little slow at answering emails!) and
helpful. The rooms and pretty much all of the hotel is cleaned daily. From memory the bar prices are very reasonable, as is the food (only snacks really) if you want to stay and eat there. To sum it all up, it’s the only hotel in the area so it has a monopoly; it’s a little bit dated and would benefit from a refurbishment, but this would increase the prices and could change the ambience of the place (but I think the same could be said for much of the Cap). Personally we’re sure there is a need for a more up-market hotel on the site, we’re sure it would do a great trade but until then we’ll certainly be trying to book the Eve again next year if we can!
