We had a few wonderful nights here last month and were really happy with our choice of hotel. Family suite is massive and has a Key West sort of vibe to it (as does the hotel decor at ground level in general. A lovely surprise and not at all what I expected from a Best western ). Plenty of space for a family to spread out, including a lovely little terrace. What's great is that the light room turns into a totally dark sleep haven at the flick of a few switches thanks to automatic blinds on all the windows - a must for children on summer mornings. We all slept like logs (apart from the last night when the newly inspected air conditioning system suddenly started making strange noises - no doubt this has been fixed by now).
The breakfast is very good. Plenty of choice for all - fruits, pastries, breads, yoghurts, continental selection of hams & cheeses, even cakes and a few hot choices (eggs and sausages). I didn't get bored and found it reasonably priced. The breakfast room is lovely and looks out onto the very stylish courtyard by the pool, which looks beautiful (unfortunately we couldn't swim yet as it was just warming up in April). The guys running the breakfast room are charming .
We didn't eat in the restaurant but ordered room service on a couple of evenings. This came promptly and with a smile! I was very impressed by the level of cooking - the prawn tagine dish was as good, if not better, than the meals we had in town. Pasta dishes were generous and also delicious. The children's meals are an absolute bargain!
It was a nice touch to have the nespresso machine and free capsules each day. It would have been the icing on the cake for my tea-drinking husband to have a kettle and tea supplied to the room too. There is a mini bar and safe. Housekeeping was good.
We were worried about parking but needn't have been - we found a free spot on the (quiet) streets next to the hotel each time we returned. You can walk into ste maxime itself within a few minutes, which is wonderful if you don't want to drive for lunch or dinner.
All in all I really cannot fault this hotel. Years ago my husband and I stayed in the beautiful
gardens hotel in Key West and this took me back there in terms of spirit. Definitely not your run of the mill chain hotel. Finally, the reservations team and desk staff are helpful pre and during your stay. We shall look no further when we next visit st maxime. A la prochaine !
