Explorers Hotel was adequate. Swimming Pool and play areas for children are good and offer a welcome break from the busy atmosphere at the Disney parks. The rooms are clean but would certainly benefit from a refresh. I am guessing these rooms have not been touched since the hotel was built and they do now seem a little dated. The shower is certainly in need of an update. Reception staff where pleasant and helpful. Breakfast could easily be improved, whilst I appreciate it was continental, it was very basic. The toast machines certainly need replacing - you had to send your bread around several times. Free shuttle service offered to the Disney Parks did not seem to run as often as indicated on the timetables for the particular days we visited the Parks, however it did take you right up to the entrances for the parks and the train station. All in all for the small amount of time we spent at the hotel it was adequate. Collapse

We chose Explorers Hotel after viewing their website, the hotel looked as if it had a great theme and the kids were keen to try the pool and the 6d Cinema. The room itself (Family Room with Bunkbeds) was large, a main bedroom with a double bed and bunkbeds and a further room with smaller bunkbeds as well. It did look very tired though and the carpet didnt look as though it had been vacuumed. There were also paper cups that were dirty and had coffee stains inside, so had just been rinsed. There was a sachet with some tea/coffee in it on arrival, but it was never replenished, Plastic cups in the bathroom were also not replenished once used. However, the beds were very comfortable, the shower was hot and powerful and there was a fair selection of english TV Channels. In terms of facilities our children at 12 and 13 did not use the softplay area or the pirate ship, they did use the pool though at a cost of 2 euro each per day for a towel. They did not use the 6d Cinema in the end as it cost 5 euro a ticket! (Expensive when you consider a show lasts just 4-6 minutes!) Continental Breakfast was included in the price, there was a good selection of food but if you wanted Eggs and Bacon you had to pay an additional 4 Euro - I feel this should be included in the price as the hotel wasnt cheap. The main restaurant was closed for refurbishment when we stayed but we did have Pizza - prices start at 12 Euro for a Medium Pizza and 4 euro for a portion of chips. Food was edible but not particularly nice. We didnt eat in the buffet restaurant as at 24.50 euro for adults and 12 euro for children it was just too expensive. Even at Disney you could pick up a Burger, Fries and Drink for less than this, a kids meal was the equivalent of a McDonalds regular meal cost 8 Euro and an adult meal with dessert around 15 euro! Our saving grace was the Relay Shop at the station, they do salad boxes, baguettes, freshly squeezed orange juice, crisps, snacks and although still expensive worked out a far better (and tastier) option. The shuttle bus to Disneyland ran regularly, but even in off peak it was a rugby scrum with people fighting to get prams on the bus - taxis are expensive 15 - 20 Euro for a short journey, it varies - so make sure you ask before getting in! Top Tips 1. If you are travelling to/From Paris and will be using the RER/Metro a lot, get a Navigo Decouverte, not the Paris-Viste, its less than half the price. It took us about an hour to get the mini photos done for the four of us and get the pass, at 111 euro + 20 euro for the tickets it was worth it. Also once you have the pass its valid for 10 years so for future journeys you only need top it up. 2. Save money on food by buying sandwiches and drinks, I also saw quite a few kids topping up their water bottles with juice at breakfast, the waiting staff didnt seem to mind. 3. If you plan to use the pool a lot, take your own towels - plus the pool has a rule on wearing tight trunks only for men/boys, they enforce this strictly. 4. Disney Tickets, we bought 2 days worth of 1 day/1 park tickets, one day we did Disneyland Paris and one day we did Walt Disney Studios, children over 11 are considered adults for pricing so our tickets cost £35 each person. In December this was enough to be able to do all the rides we wanted at least twice and still have time to see all we wanted to. Our tickets did come with fastpass, but we never needed to use it as the longest wait was 30 minutes, with most only being 5 or 10. 5. Paris - be warned, prices are absolutely eye watering, you can easily pay 8 Euro for just a coffee. However, we did find a nice french bistro who did a wonderful Hot Dog for 10 euro - consider that cheap though in Paris terms! We didnt go up the Eiffel Tower but did do the River Boat Cruise which wasnt too expensive at 15 euro. If you want to do the Louvre dont go on a Tuesday like we did as it was ... CLOSED. Finally, back to the Explorer Hotel, its not bad, probably justified to get 3 stars and no more, expensive, but then so is the entire region, but for us, it really boiled down to a warm room, comfortable bed, hot shower and nice breakfast.. if thats all you are looking for, we could recommend this hotel, but if you want the true Disneyland Magic, you may be best served choosing a disney owned hotel.

Reception team provided a lovely warm welcome and were friendly throughout the stay. They communicated in many languages which was brilliant. All speak good English. The room was clean and themed like the rest of the hotel. There was a large sofa and comfortable double bed. There are plenty of lights, a good heater and ceiling fan to keep you comfortable. Plenty of plug sockets around the room and even one plug specifically for UK plugs so if you forget your adaptor no problem there is a UK plug outlet below the tv see my pics. Toilet and bathroom are separate which is a good idea. Shower was powerful and they provide shower wash and towels each day. TV was fantastic plenty of channels, yes they even have Sky News, BBC and ITV1 & 2 which was brilliant didn’t even miss the soaps. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room and reception will give you more if needed. Telephone in the room and a mini fridge which was useful. They even put a few complimentary welcome drinks in the room with a welcome letter which was a nice touch. Plenty of space to hang clothes and store luggage etc. Overall fantastic room!! Kids will love the pirate theme of the rooms. Breakfast was always busy but never waited more than a minute to be seated by friendly waiting staff. The buffet is included each day and is continental breakfast. Great selection of cerial, yoghurts, crossiants, pan au chocolate, ham etc. The Crossiants were fresh and crispy each day which is fantastic, I hate stale croissants. Tea and coffee orange juice apple and water is provided also. The Plantation Restaurant opens in the evening for a All you can eat buffet dinner charged at €24.50 (December 2017) per person. Yes this seems a high price but for the location of the hotel this is reasonable and the food was fantastic every evening. Plenty of choice and we dined here every night. Different choice each night but overall quality of food was outstanding. Marcos Pizza was nice too delicious pizza with plenty of cheese. The coffee shop was nice and cakes were delicious. There is an on-site Disney Store!!! I was in heaven, they have some fantastic Disney products and is open until 10pm each day, it is expensive, but this is expected from Disney! Lobby area was pleasant and love the dragon theme waterfall. There is a free shuttle bus to the Disney Parks every 20 minutes. Few things that I was not happy with - €4 for a game of pool absolute rip off and no chalk! And the shuttle busses although free were always cramped and in my opinion dangerously overcrowded this needs to be reviewed by management. Everyone pushes and shoves to get on the bus otherwise you have another 20minute wait and when the weather is cold and wet no one wanted to wait. Don’t let these two bad things put you off though, this hotel is amazing and I will be back and will recommend to anyone!!! Thank you Team Explorers! Collapse
Fun time for kids

It was a nice stay that we booked last minute for an inexpensive stay close to Disney. Clean hotel room, but most importantly my kids had a blast and preferred the hotel than going to Disney. Highly recommend for families!

Stayed peak season August 2017. The hotel has loads of great facilities for the kids, particularly the pool and soft play. However, I suspect it was built around the same time as Disney and is starting to show its age. The weather was unusually good (hot) when we were there and the lack of air conditioning in the rooms made for very restless nights! The rooms are bright and colourful, but again are starting to feel tired. The courtesy buses to Disney are very frequent, but extremely busy. At peak times, you can expect to be packed in like sardines. The hotel itself is in the middle of nowhere save for 3 - 4 similar hotels, so food wise beyond Disney, you are limited to the hotel and boy do they take unfair advantage of that. Outside of the happy hour (with huge queues at the bar), I have never paid as much for a pint of standard larger in my life and I include top London hotels in that! Breakfast is poor, the buffet restaurant very, very poor and very, very overpriced. The main restaurant "the Captains Table" is better, but the menu very limited and again, terribly overpriced for what it is. I know you are five minutes from Disney, but you are also in France. I might have tolerated the high prices if the food and drink were excellent, but they were not - a long way from it! If you have young kids, I'd recommend the hotel overall, but only if it isn't hot and you don't plan to eat or drink there! Collapse
