My partner and I booked a two bed room for a deliberately cheap and cheerful week in the south of France. This fitted the bill exactly. Compared with certain places in the area this was probably the cheapest and definitely the closest to the part of Cap d'Agde we were visiting.
After an extremely early flight, a bus, a tram, a train and then a taxi to the resort, we were ready to check in and flop out. Unfortunately, despite stating on our booking form that we would be arriving between 11am and midday, they said it wouldn't be possible to check in. In fact, despite going back every hour on the hour, it was 6pm when we finally got our key - a rather disappointing start. Also, there was a list of extras charges, some of which I had been expecting, some of which I hadn't.
You have the tourist tax which is charged everywhere, then €12 for the towels, €16 for the sheets (yes, you have to rent your sheets), €20 for the Wifi, €40 for the TV and €56 for cleaning! It mounts up quickly! We didn't bother with the TV and initially said we would clean the room ourselves. However, it became apparent that by the time we'd bought everything we'd need to clean the room, and the fact it would have to be inspected, and check out was before 10am, we decided to pay the money and enjoy our last day instead of doing housework!
Reception is competent but at the same time we never felt terribly welcome. Maybe it was a Brexit thing!
The little resort, for what of a better word, is great. The pool was really lovely, the restaurant served a decent selection of food and is run by an absolutely charming guy who gave us a discount when we were too stuffed to finish the standard three course meal! Staff were smiley and happy. There's a small but very useful shop onsite selling everything you could need including incredibly cheap wine by the litre and, of course, baguettes!
We had a ground floor apartment (no.66) which was perfectly appointed. Yes, it was a bit shabby in places - there was a bit of mold over the shower corner of the bath, and the paint on the loo ceiling had formed an enormous bubble - but really, it could all be overlooked for the size and the comfort. Once we'd made the bed with our newly-hired sheet and used the spare room to unpack, it started to look like home. It had a very well appointed kitchen including hob, microwave, coffee machine and even dishwasher, the bed was surprising comfortable despite the fact I thought I was initially going to flump straight through it, the shower over the bath gave a surprisingly good soaking, and the outside space was perfectly fine for us to chill out and eat baguettes.
If you are basing your holiday on perfect accommodation then this is not the place for you! We were on a budget so this was perfect for us. We stayed at another hotel down the road earlier in the year for three days - it was more expensive for those three days than the whole week at St Loup, despite all the extras!
We had a great week. If you turn right out of the resort, the beach is a ten minute walk and has some amazing beach bars (Mango's was just heaven!) and if you turn left out of the resort, then follow the signs you'll end up at the naturist resort exactly 15 minutes away. That would need a whole different review all by itself but if that's what you're there for and you can't afford to stay in the village itself (it's SOOOOO expensive!!), this is a great alternative!
We travelled in from Montpelier airport, hence the planes, trains and automobiles we had to get, but Bezier is much closer. Unfortunately, St Loup only seems to have a Saturday to Saturday check in so Montpellier it had to be! A taxi all the way is around €130 (so double for a return) or you can get the airport shuttle and tram (around €1.50 for a combined ticket) followed by €9 each way on the train to Agde which took 30 minutes, then a taxi for just under €20. Much, much cheaper although yes, it did take a bit longer than a cab all the way, but so much more of an adventure!
Would we go back? Yes. Despite the odd hiccup with checking in and the slightly tatty room, it was perfect for our needs and we would indeed go back. You really do get what you pay for and if you remember that, you won't go far wrong!
