Stayed here for 5 nights at the end of September which is the best time to visit St. Tropez if you want to avoid all the masses of people. I was booked into a Junior Suite after receiving a 1 category room upgrade as an Unlimited Leaders Club member. The room was fantastic with a balcony looking out at the beach and the sea. The hotel is situated on a small section of Bouillabaisse Beach and there are plenty of lounges available for all the guests. Service at the hotel was superb, especially the breakfast servers and beachside service staff. The concierges were always greeting you with a smile every time you walked in and out of the hotel. The continental breakfast was somewhat inconsistent but whatever you do, do not order in-room dining. I ordered some lamb chops for dinner one night and I received a few lamb chops on an otherwise empty plate for $70. Do walk into town, which takes about 15 minutes, for much better dining options. The hotel provides a one way shuttle service into town as well but the €5 charge seems rather chintzy. On the other hand, their restaurant La Vague d'Or truly does deserve it's 3rd Michelin star. The food was imaginative and delicious and dare I say better than Le Louis XV, but make sure you book ahead before you arrive. All in all, it was a wonderful and relaxing stay at this hotel.
