Reviews from the Pierre et Vacances CenterParcs Group website

Lovely stay here, clean apartments, very friendly helpful staff. Right on the beach so only 2 minutes to get there. Beds could be updated but all in all good value for money. Pool closed which the kids were disappointed about (especially as said it would be open). One thing to be aware of is if you travel out of season as we did (end of October) most shops are either closed or in the process of closing down - and reception hours are minimal.
My wife and I stayed here for a week in September. We were given a convenient 4th floor apartment, with full sea view and access to the front and (in our wing) immediate lift access right outside to the shopping and restaurant street on the other side. Very helpful and friendly lady at reception.Not many people about in September either in the residence itself or Cap d'Agde as a whole so no crowds or queues or noise, suspect it could be a different story in August!
