We, a family of 2 adults with 2 children enjoyed our (short) stay at this hotel. We booked it actually only because another, already existing hotel couldn't be extended to a longer stay, so we used this hotel as "prequel" to our actual other hotel stay.
The room was very nice, quite large, and considering we booked only 3 days before arriving (in July 2012), the rates were reasonnable too. We arrived by car, and were surprised that the navigations system guided us into a commercial zone of St. Martin de Crau. Once you are in the hotel court, you however already forgot about that, since the hotel itself and its setup is an island of peace and cleanliness. Arles and Les Baux de Provence is just a stone-throw away, maybe a quarter hours drive. We also went to visit the Camargue, which is also very close.
The pool is a giant, inflatable one, and the kids loved it, and it has a decent depth. The rooms are around a middle square court, which is very nicely decorated with lavender and other mediterran plants, with an old fountain, benches, rocks and columns. Someone with a love to details made that, and made it nicely. The breakfast was good, and very fair priced. Very welcoming and caring staff. Will definitely come back one day to this hotel, next time maybe even a bit longer.
