Firstly, let me start by clarifying that my visit was a little different to most reviews for this hotel as it was in December. Sausset-les-Pins is a typical lovely French Mediterranean village, with restaurants, cafés and shops to meet every need... In the summer. This appears to be the same for the Hotel Paradou; it is pleasant, but would benefit from a bustling atmosphere to cover over some aspects, such as the outdated decor.
My room was small with a balcony and sea view. Like many other reviews, the balcony could easily be reached from the outside, and the door does not lock (apparently an intentional modification), but I was never given any cause for concern as I never felt anything but safe in this location. This being said, in light of this issue a room safe should be a must, but unfortunately it is not. The bathrooms are well appointed and modern, with the shower being of excellent quality. Generally, the rooms are of typical French arrangement, so don't expect big thick duvets or fluffy pillows, although they are clean and comfortable.
Whilst I did not eat in the restaurant, I am assured by my colleagues that it is very good, with a number of tasty fish dishes on the menu. Breakfast was a simple continental affair, with no hot option, although when I ordered it to my room it arrived without fuss less than 5 minutes later. It is this kind of service that makes Hotel Paradou an appealing choice, as the staff were always happy to help. I arrived with a non-French speaking colleague late at night, and was welcomed with a smile (not always the case in France!) and with great patience towards our varying language skills.
Overall, a pleasant place to stay in a nice location, but don't expect anything out of this world.
