Hospitality galore. Even though we only stayed one night the staff was exceptional. Can't wait to go back and the location is excellent. The rooms we had were not large but who needs large when you are so close to the water and the boardwalk and the shopping!

This small hotel on the beach at Saint-Jean-de-Luz, France was perfect. Run by a family with mother , father and two charming sons, the room had a great view, had every small comfort, small elevator, and charming breakfast room, where fresh juices, perfect French rolls, fruit, yoghurt and cakes were served with charm . A special treat was the pot... More

My husband and I stayed for the second year running in this lovely family run hotel. We had a very comfortable and spotlessly clean room with open views of the sea front and beach. The hotel is family run with professional and helpful, but not intrusive, staff. St Jean-de-Luz is a small buzzing town with lots of restaurants. We'll definitely... More

The hotel has an enviable position, overlooking the bay, but this is the least of its features. The staff are so professional and polite, as well as being friendly and very helpful. They ensure that your stay is a good one, but in a quiet and unassuming way. The car parking is adequate and the town has practically everything within... More

The Hotel Bel Air is ideally situated with a gorgeous view of the beach at St. Jean-de-Luz. It is a clean and well-run establishment with comfortable rooms. I would recommend it without hesitation, and would be happy to stay there again.

The Bel-Air is perfectly located right at the beach in this quaint little seaside village in the Basque area at the French-Spanish border. From our room on the third floor we had a splendid view of the sea. The room had a warm feel to it and was well-appointed, with two firm twin beds, a desk, two chairs, an armoire... More

I didn't stay here, but came off the street needing help and Christophe on reception couldn't have been more considerate. On the basis of this experience I would definitely consider this hotel if planning a further visit to Saint-Jean-de-Luz.

Bel Air Hotel is a real pearl with its location and its fantastic staff! It has a nice, classic feel, very helpful staff, family owned and charming athmosphere. We enjoyed the breakfast after an early swimming and walk among the fantastic beach and the fresh ocean air. It was difficult to leave!

Lovely comfortable room with modern bathroom and great sea view. Friendly family running the place - only wish I wanted to speak to them more, you get out of practice in big hotels. Breakfast good, they're proud of their produce.
