A return visit to Biarritz to take in some sea air! The hotel was situated right above the beach, but also two minutes from the main shopping street. We had paid extra for a balcony, but unfortunately it was rather too windy during our visit for us to take much advantage of it! Enjoyed a meal in the hotel's restaurant on our second night and a nightcap in the hotel bar.
Aside from the exorbitant fees for in-hotel dining (even buffet), the only snag was not being allowed to check-in until after 4:00 p.m. as per hotel policy. After finally checking in, it also took more than a half-hour and a follow-up visit to reception to get our luggage delivered to the room. We were told that we could leave our luggage while waiting to check-in, but not our one bag that contained valuables. Otherwise, the hotel is brilliant.
The stay at the Windsor will remain memorable -- it strikes exactly the right balance on all accounts. The staff are very friendly without being intrusive; the room we had (looking towards the ocean) was simply great; the vibe of the hotel is easy-going and just the right atmosphere after a day of surfing or at the beach. Highly, highly, recommended.

Stretches of sandy shore at Grand Plage beckon surfers from all over the world to challenge these Basque coast waves. Off the beach, Biarritz provides abundant leisure with museums, festivals, cafés, and thalassotherapy spas, not to mention multiple golf courses located nearby.
