This holiday apartments residence, operated by Odalys, has a fairly good location, close to the beautiful towns of Grimaud and Port Grimaud and just 15 minutes drive from St Tropez.
However, I certainly would not go back here and regret having booked it in the first instance. I booked this accommodation on Leisure direction website as they seemed to be the cheapest. The photographs looked nice and descriptions seemed to have everything we wanted. As a family of 4, I opted for the 6 person apartment for extra space although this still turned out to be quite small with 1 double bed, kitchenette and our 2 children sleeping in the entrance hall area, I certainly would not have liked to have stayed in the 4 person apartment!
At £881 stg for one week, I expected a high standard, I was disappointed. When we arrived we were informed that a cot for our baby would cost an extra 35 euro, a microwave 15 euro, towel hire 5euro per person, a television 45 euro and to have our room serviced after our stay 45 euro. We were given an inventory sheet to fill in and return or we would be billed for any missing items. We then had to collect our own sheets at reception from the unhelpful staff.
Our appartment was very old in style with paint flaking off the ceilings and very basic furnished. Childrens feet were black after walking on the floor for two minutes and a strong smell of urine lurked from bathroom. On checking out we accompanied by another of the unfriendly staff to check the appartment in military fashon, we were asked to strip down the beds etc and return the sheets to reception! We have stayed in serviced apartment accommodation in many locations for a lot less money. Our stay was uncomfortable and unpleasant in this non-air conditioned den, don't stay here!
