“Best Ocean Front Choice in Saint Jean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

We were ever so happy with this selection with an ocean front balcony! The front desk was incredibly accommodating and friendly. So many restaurants to walk to. We didn't use our car at all during the stay. Breakfast is worth paying for as outside options are very few. Quiet, clean, felt very first class! Best choice in this town for a place to stay.

Room Tip: pay the extra for an ocean front balcony and book way in advance

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Stayed here for two nights in September and loved it. Our room was right on the beach and we were able to enjoy the view of the sea from our small balcony. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. I found the decor a bit tired, but this is only a minor complaint. The bed was very comfortable and we went to bed with our balcony door open so we could fall asleep to the sound of the waves. St-Jean-de-Luz is a wonderful town, full of interesting shops that are not as touristy as many resort towns. We loved walking along the promenade and the beach and dined in some excellent restaurants. Chez Kako, where we had a table on the patio and enjoyed typical bistro fare. Also, Le Kaiku, a charming restaurant with friendly service and a tasting menu that is well-worth the money. Even if you don't have the tasting menu, I recommend the lagoustines in a coconut emulsion that are also available on the a la carte menu.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel so can't comment, but we did have lunch at Piper Beltz, a creperie near the hotel that served very good savory and dessert crepes.

Room Tip: Sea view room is recommended.

A couple of steps across the road and you are on the wonderful beach in St Jean de Luz. This is a charming hotel with excellent service. The bedrooms, although not glamorous, have an elegant simplicity and practicality and are very comfortable.. The bathrooms are large and baths havevery good over head showers.. Most rooms face onto the sea and several have balconies. The hotel also has its own private garage nearby and will park your car for you. Breakfast is buffet style and copious! This is a place where everything works and nothing seems to be too much trouble for the staff. I can't wait to return!

Room Tip: The pictures identifying the various rooms give a very good idea of what to expect. Second floor roo...

Right on the beach of St Jean this hotel is also in the middle of this old city, with narrows streets and a lot of shops.Smiling people at the reception, very friendly service,,good breakfast .
We could not enjoy a room with seaview, but we definitely enjoyed the reduced pricing , which makes it a very good deal, for a place where you just walk out in bathing suit....
I definitely recommend this hotel which offers anrare balance between sea and city center.

Can't praise this place too highly. Great location right on the sea front looking out over the bay, but not noisy at night and St Jean itself is charming with lots of narrow pedestrianized streets to wonder around with nice shops and bands and music at night in the square down by the harbour. The best thing about the hotel though is the staff, all of whom were v friendly and helpful with help unloading our car etc - and eventually even posting onwards a bag we had forgotten! Room was spotless and well cleaned (despite our mess!) and breakfast was excellent and plentiful. The hotel's own restaurant was also excellent with v good attentive service. We loved it and will definitely be going back - hopefully next year!!

Spent an idyllic 3 days at the Hotel de la Plage. the rooms were clean. The views of the beach extraordinary, but best of all was the staff, who went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. We will be back.

The hotel is perfectly positioned providing sweeping views of the beach and being within the area of the shops and restaurants. The hotel was adequately comfortable, although the simple rooms would benefit from tea/coffee making facilities, but the view from the balcony was the star attraction. The bed was ok and being on the second floor there was little noise at night other than the sound of the waves - but our visit was out of season. The owner was very helpful and welcoming. His brother runs the attached restaurant and this is well worth a visit as well. You can reserve garage parking for an extra charge and I suspect this would be well worth it in season. Overall, good value and recommended.
