“A surprisingly good base for visiting St. Tropez”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

We found this lovely spot on booking,com. While we had a little difficulty at sign in (they did not have our booking.com details), they adjusted very quickly. They made us feel very comfortable and provided a welcoming environment. The hotel is located two blocks back from the sea front. Ste-Maxime is a lovely place -- less crowded and less famous than nearby St. Tropez. There is a very good restaurant district, an attractive marina and a very pleasant ocean front. The hotel provides free parking and attractive rooms -- nothing fancy, but no problems either.

Reviewed 22 October 2011

I searched long and hard for a last minute 2 night stay for my husband and I in Ste-Maxime from 20 Oct to 22 Oct 2011. Although at the time of booking I couldn't find any internet reviews for Le Petit Prince I took a punt via booking.com based on price, location and free parking - believe me my hunch couldn't have been better!

The most impressive thing about this hotel is the service. All the staff from reception, breakfast, cleaning and management are extremely service oriented, professional, happy, friendly and helpful - overall absolutely incredible service with no exaggeration. One example is that we had some documents that we needed to print, copy and post internationally which the owner/manager arranged and went to La Poste on our behalf.

Apart from the incredible service, we were also upgraded to a larger room where we had a part view over the Gulf of St Topez. We could not fault the room in terms of size, layout and cleanliness - and this was exactly as described on booking.com (I double checked!). Although the hotel is on a relatively busy road the rooms are soundproofed with great effectiveness and we were able to sleep without disturbance.

For us the location was perfect as there was no need to move the car from the hotel carpark - it was a short walking distance to the beach (as advertised) and the old town not was not much further (shops, cafes and wonderful array of restaurants). This is also an ideal location for a day trip to St Tropez - the ferry is also only a short walk from the hotel.

We opted to pay extra for the continental breakfast which we found very scrumptious and included pastries, bread, breakfast spreads, cheese, ham, salami, boiled eggs, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, orange juice and tea or coffee.

I did enquire on check-out whether Le Petit Prince is a new hotel given I couldn't find any internet reviews at the time of booking. The reason given is that there has been a recent change of ownership and they have just started listing on the internet.

In summary, when we return to Ste-Maxime, Hotel Le Petit Prince will be our first choice for accommodation - a rare find and highly recommended by us.
