Everything about this hotel is charming. Tastefully decorated rooms. Silvi, the owner, is a delight and always happy to answer to all your needs. The hotel is located very near the beach but in a very quite street. A little hard to find but worth the effort. GPS came in very handy. I highly recommend this lovely little gem of a hotel.

Room Tip: Room 301 is very quite and you can see the ocean from the window.

What a wonderful find a little gem, the staff are so very friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble . The rooms are beautifully decorated, a little on the small side but very cosy, spotlessly clean and a modern en suite . The location is fantastic, two minute walk to the beach and shops , restaurants and port an easy stroll away . All in all what more could you want .

Quiet, high-quality, clean & cozy, this charming hotel is a minute stroll from the beach. Breakfast is local &/or organic, wifi is strong, beds are comfy, and the bathroom is shiny. Run by two lovely, helpful managers, w/a cozy salon And off the beaten path!

This really is a gem of a hotel. Great location in lovely St jean de Luz - close to beach and all other amenities. Short stroll one way to the beach and the atmospheric old town in pedestrianised shopping area the other. The owners are so friendly and always on hand to advise on where to go or recommend restaurants etc. The hotel has a maritime theme (see photos) and is spotless clean throughout. The only negative is that the classic style rooms are rather cramped for space - definitely worth trading up to the comfort or executive rooms. Free wifi and lots of reference books to browse in foyer area. There is a lovely small outdoor terrace for breakfast when weather is fair. All in all a perfect spot to enjoy the charming town of St Jean de Luz with nearby Biarritz, Bayonne and San Sebastian over the the Spanish border also enticing places to visit.

Room Tip: Trade up to a comfort room for more space

Having done considerable research, we decided to book the last night of our French holiday in La Marisa. Not the easiest of places to find, but the effort was well worth it. Extraordinarily friendly welcome, most helpful with the car parking, lovely comfortable room, residents' lounge extremely well stocked with books and magazines. Breakfast was not cheap at €12 each, but the quality was good, and it wasn't compulsory! We would wholeheartedly recommend La Marisa.

Room Tip: Our room overlooking the street was fine, but French dustcarts do start at 5 am!

A bit of a gem. Only 50m from the beach, a lovely friendly and family-run hotel with a beautiful little enclosed courtyard to enjoy their excellent breakfasts. St Jean de Luz is a great little town. Lots of restaurants and a good beach. Will definitely be back

This is a friendly, charming, clean, centrally located hotel. We had a cheaper and smaller room than we had during our last stay, but it was still good. I guess that because the hotel is run by the owner who is on site, it works really well, the standards are high and the furnishings were of good quality and tasteful. In addition, for those people with no French, she, and most of the staff, do speak perfect English.
Some people have written, on this site, that they missed having free toiletries but to us, the comfort of the bed and quality of the sheets and towels are what matter and these were first class and extremely clean. Although our bedroom looked out onto the main street, because of the shutters, double glazing and blinds, there was no noise. The breakfasts were good and fresh though simple.
Their advice about what shops to visit was most helpful and the first evening, we ate at a Basque restaurant that they said was good. However, what really impressed us was that for the following evening, we were recommended a nearby seafood restaurant, and when the meal and service turned out to be awful, we reported this back to the owner. She really did listen and said that she would investigate whether the chef had changed or something had gone wrong.
In short, we felt as though we were staying in an establishment that listened and treated us well. No wonder they are nearly always fully booked.
Thank you for a lovely stay in St Jean de Luz.

Room Tip: I think that they are probably all good though they do vary a bit in size and not all have a bath.
