“Great hotel, quite and peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

A short walk from the town (15 minutes), this hotel is good value with large and nicely furnished rooms. We had a pool view room with direct access to one of the many pools. The pools were not busy and grabbing a sun lounger was easy. Would stay here again.

We loved this little place. The picture dont do it justice. An outstanding value. We've stayed in 4-5 star hotels that weren't this nice. It's a beautiful, charming little place that's a 10 minute walk from Ste-Maxime. It's really quiet. It''s got 2 beautiful pools. Large, modern bathrooms. Each room has a patio seating area. We loved it so much, we stayed longer.

Since we stayed at this hotel on October , it was almost empty with 2-3 other guests . Located very close to seaside , very green with many trees and flowers and all rooms are with big space and interior is comfortable. I believe it is a very good option (price&quality) during summer time.

My wife and I have stayed at the Caladianus nearly very sprig since 1999,motoring down taking a day and a half. We have found the hotel to be perfect for us at this time of the year but a little out of our cost range in the med/high season.The staff,especially Mme Avice are very friendly and chatty.
The rooms are good,clean and functional, however the pools and restaurant are not open at the time we visit.
All in all if it wasn't good value and well situated we wouldn't have kept visiting.

Last visited back in 2004 and enjoyed our stay then so was pleased that the place was as we remembered. Lovely quiet location within an easy walk to the town. We had a superior room which was plenty big enough and had plenty of wardrobe space, balcony and a bed to get lost in. The breakfast was a simple continental buffet which was O.K. for 12 euros. We found all the staff very friendly and even the girls doing the rooms always had a big smile. Will be going back!

Room Tip: Most of the rooms face the pool area I think but the hotel is generally very quiet so there aren'...

Lovely relaxing holiday, great staff especially delphine who was a breath of fresh air and exceptional in the restaurant, and the reception staff who were very helpful and friendly.. We had superior rooms, twin and double, the bathrooms were brand new and luxury, very clean, the rooms were lovely and cool on return from very hot August days out, and opened out to our private terrace areas, perfect. Lunch and evening meals were very good, especially any steak meal, breakfast was very basic compared to other hotels we stayed at,, but was relatively cheap at 12 euros each. Lower pool was first class, more luxurious than top pool, and rarely crowded even in August. Always room for 4 people. A bit of a stretch into town, 20 min walk, need to do early or late in the day out of the heat. Went by Eurostar/tgv to st Raphael, 75 euro taxi ride to hotel, worth it with all the bags. If going to st tropez take boat early, or for cheaper option bus but early in day, we went on 7.50 bus and was easy. Later on large queues build up. For very good meal go to hotel belle aurore, right over the sea, 40 euro menu but superb, should be Michelin starred. In town try la maison bleu, the Michelin starred restaurant, la badiane, and l'amiral, and for air conditioned relief and good Italian food, a cafe/restaurant on the front, red paint, which we can't recall name, but to right of first road up into old town. Huge meals, just have one course! Great holiday, near to beaches, free tennis and table tennis, library, bar and restaurant, all to hand all day. Drinks by pool, all you could ask for. Go for it!

Room Tip: We had rooms 3 and 4 which were next to reception on the ground floor. The terraces of these rooms w...

Very much pros and cons for this hotel. First the pros: good location, great staff, clean rooms and modern bathrooms, effective air con, friendly service (including running us into town when no taxi available :)), very tasty food available, two lovely clean pools with plenty of sun beds & sun shades.
Cons: Hard to put a finger on what was not 100% but looked as if it needed sprucing up a bit! Food was good but menu hardly changed over 6 nights. Air Con failed on last day and staff not too bothered about getting it fixed!
All in all, very good value for this part of Cote D' azure. Lovely friendly staff and I can see why people might return year after year.
