“nice hotel for relaxing”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

The hotel is a nice and relaxing getaway as it is not such a big hotel complex. Our room was tiny, but very well designed. A bit pricy, but then again - it's St. Tropez. Its not in the middle of town, however, the hotel offers a free shuttle to the old town and return (complimentary) . The pool is amazing and the loungers are comfortable too. The staff is very accommodating and friendly.
We decided to have the breakfast in the hotel which was at an additional cost, and as far as i am concerned, not really great price value, but sitting in the morning on that nice terrace and enjoying the view to the pool was worth it.

cool modern hotel in great surroundings....loved the teepee in the garden...
room was small but a terrace and pool view.
Not in the centre so allow time for the regular shuttle with cute and helpful drivers.
The staff were all friendly and this is not always the case in st trop...
Breakfast basic and at 28 euros very pricey but thats san tropez....
would stay again as its away from the hustle and bustle but stil prefer the yuca for real charm and location

The deco of this hotel is absolutely gorgeous, a place we know for many years.This year we had a very bad experience.The personel of the hotel changed and they are very rude and not polite.The service and the presentation of the breakfast is like a three stars hotel: just a few food,no buffet ......and the food is not so good.
Around the pool, a lot of noise,a lot of drunk nighters who didnt sleep and talk very loud all day !!! Don t think you will relax ....
The manager is a young woman with no experience. The hotel is now managing by a group called " Charm and more" ?!??
We left this terrible hotel and went in another place in St tropez,where the personel is happy and friendly . Don t go to Benkirai for your holiday s trip ! One night is more than enough,believe me !
Thanks for reading .

Dear Lady and Sir,

What a pity for us to read your disapointement; moreover if your are a regular Benkiraï's guest.

Management did no change these last years, Charm & More Hotels & Resorts always operate the BenkiraÏ.

We do apologize about the bas and poor behavement of the drunk guest who made the noise around the pool; as soon as we knew, we directly ask them to be quiete...In spite of the welcome letter in the bedroom setted up on arrivals we do encourage to respect of the peacefull place we are, St Tropez is St Tropez sometimes...

About the Breakfast, your 're right, it totally changed !
For quality reasons, we prefered having the hot salted service on request : boiled eggs, scrambeld eggs, withe omelette, bacon...are made " à la minute" to get a perfect cooking, to avoid having chafing dish during 4 hours on the buffet where everybody breath ect...Therefore, the buffet can appear smaller.
Then, we replaced all the industrial breakfast products by fresh or healthy products : 3 fresh juices pressed during the night, bread and danish pastries cooked at 5 am; our own bio Muesli, Jam without any conservatory, local honey. We add a different daily detox drink each day as a special sweet every day : pancakes, crêpes, madeleines, gauffres...
Endly, the rate has changed, in a good way, from 28 € it had been reduced at 23 €.
Do not hesitate to write me extactly what surprised you.

We would like to welcome you again as a regular guest, here is my own email : jb@charmandmore.com, I remind me on your entire disposal.

Words can't explain how amazing this place is. it's not just the quiet and peaceful environment, but it's also the beautiful location, but most importantly the amazing service. From the minute we walked into the hotel, the staff was so attentive, and so sweet. The receptionist checked us in, gave us a tour of the hotel, and our room, and then made us amazing dinner reservations in town. The next day we were able to enjoy the beautiful pool, and just unwind from our travels in Paris...I asked Antoine if he can help me celebrate my friend's birthday, and him and his team, brought out a wonderful dessert for her, and sang happy birthday, and he then provided us with amazing recommendations of places to go in the evening to celebrate. We went to all of the recommended places, and we loved it. Antoine was such a sweet person, and so kind and helpful. I have stayed at many places, but I have to say Benkirai is one place I really connected with and felt so at home. Thanks to Antoine, and the rest of the staff who made us feel so at home.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and loved it! Was definitely one of our favorites during our trip through Spain and France because it is a beautiful space, very peaceful and quiet but also easily accesible to the center of Saint-Tropez by shuttle or car. The room was very clean and has an interesting design that we loved. Might not be great for friends or families with children but perfect for couples. The balcony was nice and the pool area and garden were wonderful. As other reviewers mentioned, food and drinks here are super expensive! I had a cafe au lait one morning and it cost 9 euros- what?! I know Saint-Tropez is expensive but it just seemed ridiculous for a simple Nespresso coffee. The staff were extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. All spoke fluent English and on our first night the young woman at the front desk spoke fluent Spanish which was fun for us since my husband is Argentine and I was craving some Spanish practice. Everyone else was very kind, professional, polite and helpful from the bar man to the driver to the cleaners. Would definitely recommend to family and friends and hope that we can go back one day!

Dear guest,

Thank you to consider us as a place of reference during your trip between Spain and France.
It is true that we have an unusual design room but it has all the comfort and most of them has balcony space.
All our staff speaks all languages.

We also hope to see you again one day and get your family and friends as well.

Kind Regards,

Perfect service, fancy room (especially the automatic bathroom curtain) and clean pool. Location far from beach and town, but no problem with the shuttle service to both. They also arranged first row reservations at clubs, pools, Nikki beach, C55, etc and made us a bag with towels, water etc for a day at the beach or boat.

This hotel really impressed me. I wasn't expecting too much because it's an "affordable" hotel in Saint Tropez but I was greatly surprised. When my boyfriend and myself initially entered our hotel room, we were greeted by a bottle of rosé and cookies which was free of charge! This is unheard of in the Riviera!

The hotel isn't in the best location but it's just a 10 min walk to the marina. The hotel also has a shuttle service to the beach and marina which was great! I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a higher-end experience without emptying hour wallet.
