Our room was very clean and spacious. Corridors were shabby. could have done with a refridgerator
we were pleased with the accomodations. The room was clean and adecuate in siz.e. Right on the beach. Breakfast was the best we had in France.
Easy access to the beach with semi-indoor pool was great. Reception staff were delightful and very helpful, the hotel was quiet at night so got good sleep. Fantastic views over the bay. The breakfast room is a real let down - decor is soviet in starkness. However, the worst let-down is the coffee - served from an automatic dispenser which reminds one of being in a large open plan office - it tastes truly awful. I really look forward to a relaxing coffee over breakfast on holiday - this was a huge disappointment and not worthy of a 3 star hotel. I ended up going out to the local cafe instead.
Location was really good for us needing a relaxing, unhurried short stay - but don't tell too many people as we wish to return!! It was unspoilt and rural France, yet close to bigger resorts if sort after Please let us know about your special deals as we gather opening longer in 2008 Shame the indoor pool was being worked on (as quiet season for them and H & S ruling) and slightly understaffed when arrived - see above
Position, near beach Price of the food in the restaurant in the evening. Very expensive for the type of hotel. Because everything else closed in the village, meant we had to drive at night for food. Indoor swimming pool was already closed for refurbishment.
The hotel has a great view and is situated directly on the sandy beach, which is quite long. Rooms have been updated, and feature a very nice patio overlooking the sea. We drove past it twice, as it is situated behind a traffic circle and somewhat hidden from view. The private parking lot is also not marked, and not straightforward access. Some ammenities missing from room, such as mini-bar, glassware, facial tissues, etc.
Location fantastic, reception staff very helpful and friendly. Amenities great.
Being yards from the beach and sunbeds Being a 3 star hotel , it lacked usual ammenties -like a lounge, fridge in room,and tea making facilities.Corridors were very tired and could do with new carpets.Not a lot of variety on evening meals.
Relaxation (and weather!). Liked everything.
We really liked the location and the facilities of the hotel.The staff was very friendly and helpful. No complaints.
the staff was very nice; the kitchen was excellent and the room and the view were fantastuc The internet did not functiond well
Great beach.....pool and food!
Something unusual was thar as far as I could tell,allthe staff were French (?!) The bouillabesse in the restaurant.Expensive and not very good.
The view was phenomenal, the beach private and relaxing. Location was private, tucked away, yet not too far from larger cities.
Location, location, location. Simply stunning. Prices and choices in restaurant. Not helped I guess though by current rates of exchange.
The view. The room was also fairly large and at a decent standard. Small pool and solarium, private beach small and not cleaned up, poor facilities in relation to the hotel class - cheap schampoo, no conditioner, except BBC World and CNN no international cable channels, no mpay per view option, no possibility to borrow/rent dvd player.
Beautiful views, very friendly staff, good facilities. Beds were very uncomfortable
Absolutely amazing view from the room balcony, very pleasant and comfortable room . Hotel beach is rather small and it was a very big problem to get the place (sun lounger with umbrella) as we were at the Hotel in August when the place was overcrowded. The system is that you need to reserve the place in advance and when you come to the beach there are a lot of empty loungers but you cannot use them as they are reserved by somebody else. But if you pay to beach boy you may solve the problem...
Arrival at 12.30pm. Previous occupiers had "just" left. Told to wait until 3.30pm. Question need for 3 hours to prepare 2 small rooms? Rented an "apartment" . In fact was 2 small adjoining rooms and one bathroom accessed only through the first room so nocturnal disturbance inevitable.No sitting area etc in apartment. Pretty terrace overlooking the sea rendered useless by broken sun bed and 3 chairs for 4 people. Highlighted broken sunbed on arrival. Was told it would be fixed-it was not! View was spoilt by the peeling paint on the flank wall. Bathroom door could not be closed- no handle on door! Telephone not working. Shower broken. Bath plug broken. Hand shower broken, exposed electrical junction box on terrace.Musty cupboard. Pool dirty. Wife cried! Management reduced bill 50%
Location by sea
Location room staff and nice short pretty walk to town Electrical saftey by jacxuzzi dodgy. we reported it on first date but no electrician repaired it during our week. danger
the location, the room, the atmosphere and the staff
Location & sea view Walls are very thin = noise
A marvellous location overlooking a turquoise sea.
Beautiful view would revisit. Helpful staff. Nice simple fresh decor. Bathroom . Bath/shower was terrible and leaked all over floor.No ladder out of sea. Bar area could be enhanced and more staff at actual bar.
View from rooms; good size of bedroom; quality of restaurant food; helpful staff None
The hotel is beautiful and clean. Small number of rooms make it really cosy. It is by the seaside, full seaview. Food is great too. It is within walking distance to town centre.
This hotel is under new management and is excellent. Great location from the pool area into deep water sea swimming. Excellent staff, Great rooms. Good parking. Superb lunches and dinners in two separate superbly located venues. 10 minute walk down to the harbourside restaurants of Cavalerie and its long beach. 25 minute drive to the long St Tropez beach. Breakfast was passable with limited choices, poor replenishment and at 20 euros expensive. They are going to put in fixed showers this winter. Our bedroom only had a hand held shower. We told them there should be a shower on the jetty when exiting the sea. It is difficult to find without a sat nav - so get organised when you first arrive. It is Hotel Calanque - not Les Residence du Soleil. That is the ownership chain.
Lovely hotel siuated by the port, and brekfast on the terrrace
Very friendly and helpful staff, lovely view of harbour from terrace, very central for beaches and restaurants
Very friendly and helpful staff. Super clean room, great view over harbour,good local parking.
The situation was excellent, situated overlooking the marina and the beach. Dozens of places to eat within a stones throw of the hotel. Little to dislike particularly. Some facilities to make tea in the room would be good. Paying for the space in the car park is essential. One night, there was no hot water.
Qualtiy of service and excellent location Parking a bit restricted in the area
The window in front of the sea, a private low cost ( 2 euros /day) parking, the beach close to the hotel, very quiet and fresh nights also with the window closed, very kind people in the reception. I would allocate more space in the rear court to dry sea towels and swimsuits
Near the center.Cleaning.Parking car for all day x E.2,00 (but you need to book it in advance). Very small double room (my was superior at the 1st floor with hill view).SMALL Double bed and bathroom (like a small camper).NO Balcony and refrigerator on the room. no lift and very small stairs..
Good location close to the beach..Flexable with check-in time as were arrive very late Original booking could not be accomidated by hotel so we booked another of their cheaper rooms.they did not advise of no air condition in room & on checking out they tried to charge eur400 and not eur340 as advertised.
only the view from bedroom window Old and uncomforable. stairs very dangerous, especially for my daughter who has severe mobility problems. Her room smelled musty and stale. Unworthy of being called "en suite room" Because of these problems we only stayed one night but were charged for two
Location is excellent.
Brand new hotel with very nice staff. The upper seaside rooms (we were upgraded to the third floor) have a beautiful terrasse with view over the harbour and the sea, perfect to take the breakfast there! The hotel is 10 walking minutes away from the Saint Clair beach. We really loved this place. Lies next to the harbour, where there are several cafe's and disco's. So music may be loud late in the evening.
Very nice hotel, beautiful rooms, very friendly staff, good food for good money. Everything is made with love.
Clean, spacious rooms. Balcony with sea view. Pleasant staff. Main road directly underneath balcony which was unexpected. More like a really pleasant guest house than a hotel.
We loved the hotel. Decorated with excellent taste, it was clean, cool and the owners were charming and helpful. It was in a quiet situation yet close to seaside.. That we couldn't stay longer !
Top quality equipment and furniture. Beautiful view on the sea. Conveniently located with very good restaurants nearby and beach across the street. Nearby road, which can be loud during the day.
Philippe and his wife really make the stay at the hotel a real treat
Tens of house flies around. Unable to enjoy the stay.
airy well lighted garden patio
very good and efficient service. Great management. excelent breakfast. the rooms were not cleaned so well.
The hotel owners and staff were very hospitable. The hotel was simple but stylish. It was a nice change from the usual 'corporate' hotel experience
We enjoyed the style of the hotel, the laid back yet professional atmosphere. The breakfast was wonderful, offering so much variety. Yes, it is a bit pricey but consider it a brunch as you can eat plenty enough to be full until an afternoon snack. As we went to the islands of Porquerolles while we stayed there the complimentary hammam that was offered was a delight. There is parking around, & the little town of Lavandou has plenty of nice little restaurants to offer. All in all we were delighted with our stay & would enjoy going back.
Close to the beach and in the middle of the resort, helpful manager. no parking.
located right on the promenarde with godd restraunts nearby.
Fantastic stay. Close to beach and plenty of restaurants to choice from. Close to other major cities and towns. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Pleasant stay.
close to beach room no 9, view to a backyard
Close to a great beach, and plenty of excellent restaurants. Staff made it very pleasant, and English speaking staff was excellent. They were very helpful. The reception area had a great ambience and excellent views of the plaza below and Mediterrean right across the plaza. Had to park on the street near the hotel. Made me a bit nervous, but had no problems finding a parking spot and leaving the car for 2 days. Hotel is on a plaza, so is land-locked. You can pull into the plaza with a remote you can pick up at the front desk. This made it easier. Entrance was below reception. There was no lift until you were at the reception level, however I had help with getting my baggage into the hotel.
The location of the hotel was excellent as it was right in the centre of Le Lavandou. The owners of the hotel were very helpful and friendly. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room would have been nice, although when we ordered coffee late in the evening they did not charge us for it.
It is well placed in Le Lavandou, convenient for beach, shops, cafes and restaurants. Pleasant to sit and watch the world go by with an Earl Grey. Being disabled, the flight of stairs to the reception (which is where the lift starts from) was somewhat daunting. Parking for the car was difficult and meant a long walk (for a disabled person). The shower room was verging on dangerous. A serious fall in there and the door could not be opened from the outside, it would have to be removed from the hinges.
Terrific staff and wonderrful facilities. Right across from the beach and next to the town hall. Easy to get to everything in town and along the beach. No
The owners of this hotel were so accomodating and pleasant. They went to great lengths to take care of their guests and keep their hotel in great condition. Excellent location along the coast and the rooms are comfortable and a good size. Breakfast at the hotel was worth the cost. This sea town is one of the nicest along the coast. The nearby village town of Bormes-les-Mirmosas is a must to visit.
The hotel was in a very good location. The owners were polite and helpful. We thought that it was a shame that the owners were not available after 10pm, so new visitors who arrived after that time were given a code to enter side door and so were not greeted on arrival. Room keys were left on table near side door. This did not apply to us as we arrived in afternoon. Also we felt that the bar should be open in evening so after eaing out, it would be a good thing to be able to have a coffee or nightcap before retiring.
beautifull view from the room with a terrace no facilities to make cafe/tea
simple hotel yet confortable (good mattress and pillows) and well kept; nice view, well situated up hill and surrounded by vegetation; good espresso by Lavazza; very friendly mgmt and staff; uber-quiet; it would be interesting to offer also nordic breakfast, not only French;
Views form our room Rooms were in blocks, other people had to walk across your sitting area and bedroom window to reach there rooms
The position Management were very helpful re restaurants in the vicinity
Excellent value considering location. Quadruple room was very good, with two separate rooms, one with twin beds the other with a double. Two star hotel so basic with no frills but clean, very quiet and great views. Great pool, too.
Beautiful view, nice pool deck, very clean, price reasonable, helpful owners, you have terrace to eat outside the room with the lovely view. Rooms very basic indeed, too many rules! no window in the room, only sliding door, no a/c, 400m steep uphill drive (1st gear with hairpin!) not practical to walk to a restaurant and none on site, breakfast nice but not worth the money (compare to eg Ibis at similar price), very impractical pool access arrangements - all visitors must go through water bath and no shoes allowed in pool area.
Good location , pool and view. Good beach. Rooms are in a block at the rear of the main hotel building. Pleasant stay.
We liked the beautiful location of the hotel and the view at sea. Breakfast was ok. We were disappointed by the room, the bed was awfull and the bathroom was really small and didn't had any comfort. It looked like everything should be replaced, old furniture etc.
Views from the Hotel No
Nice view from the hotel. Nice and lovely family run hotel. Room very clean and everything works. Good price.
very helpful staff. lovely setting, beautiful building the mezanine rooms were a little cramped on the first floor for adults, would have been fine for children
Excellent staff. The word "No" never came out of their mouths. No internet
Beautiful views from our windows. Lovely room and bathroom. Great pool. Great location. Very individual. Their restaurant was not good. But the breakfast was fine.
calme and discreet
Rooms, good breakfeast buffet
Our stay at the hotel was excellent, staff very helpful and the seclusion and setting of the hotel was better than expected. Definitley going back there ub 2011.....
We loved this small pretty hotel, the sevice was excellent, the rooms where a good size and perfect to laze around by the pool. Not the easiest hotel to find on the sat nav.
The tranquility was a really asset to this hotel, as well as the sea view. Staff was very friendly. Our room still contained dog hair! Building is a little outdated.
The building is impressive, if a little ghostly, and the room was comfortable. Breakfast was good. Laughably understaffed ....a Hotel New Hampshire feel about it in fact and having to wait 3 hours to get into my room after arriving at 2pm was not acceptable....again the result of insufficient cleaning staff. Repeated requests to hurry up the process were politely but annoyingly ignored...not good enough.It is also a fair way from St Tropez and be warned that taxis are few and far between and eye-wateringly expensive.
Good breakfast, pleasant pool, clean pleasant comfortable room Dinning room lacked ambiance
