We had a very pleasant one-night stay in Hotel le Caritz and even though it was out of season (October) the restaurant was buzzing in the evening - not surprisingly as the food was fantastic and very professionally served by charming staff. Our bedroom was small with limited furniture or storage space, but the bed was very comfortable and we had a lovely view over the hotel terrace and the small beach and sea beyond. The bathroom was small but modern with a powerful overhead shower.
The hotel is next to a small square with free parking, but I expect it would be really hard to find a space there in the summer. On arrival at the hotel you have to check in at the bar as there is no reception as such, and there is no lift so older people might have a problem carting their luggage to the upper floors. Breakfast was simple but good, and we would definitely recommend Hotel Caritz, particularly for the amazing evening meal.
