“Shabby Rooms”
Reviewed 18 June 2009

Good points are that the general hotel grounds and pool area are very nice and the walking proximity of the beach and Port Grimaud is comfortably near. But the bad points.... our room was dingy, the pillows were very uncomfortable, it all needed a good scrub with some bleach, the bathroom was grotty and grubby and small and full of tiny ants. Not good. The balcony had a nice view but hadn't had a good sweep or clean for ages it looked like, full of leaves and general muck. Tennis and golf were on hand but totally prohibitively expensive (as were 2 evening coffees - nearly TEN euros !!!) Housekeeping seemed non existant, our towels were not changed and I had to ask at reception for clean ones. No pool towels either and a tip if you arrive at the end of the day for a swim, take OFF the blue lounger covers, although they may look dry, they are thoroughly wet with peoples sweat and pool water. We just used it as a base really, but it was five star price that only delivered 2 star quality.

I booked my stay due to the location near St Tropez. The facilities at the Park itself are really good, nice pool area, reception etc however the rooms let the whole place down. The room was dark and felt damp. There was very limited space especially considering the room could, potentially, sleep 4 adults. The bathroom was tiny with only a shower attachment on the taps but nowhere to fix this to the wall and no shower curtain.

The bedroom was equally as small with bars at the window making it quite dark. The matress felt like sleeping on damp foam, with ancient blankets should you need them.

On the plus side the rooms were clean could just do with a major overhaul.

Very nice hotel, a great find near part grimaud and st tropez. Owned by the big chain 'pierre et vacances', everything is a bit standardized but definitely nice and clean, recently renovated. The park surrounding the hotel is huge and filled with palm trees, the pool is big, the restaurant is nice and decent. Every room has a balcony with a table and chairs. There is free parking, and wifi (not free).

  • Liked — surrounded by a huge park, the pool, location, clean and renovated
  • Disliked — can get crowded in summer
