“position, nice people but getting worse”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

This little hotel is right on the beach in the wonderful Renecros Bay. It has been a favourite of our family for many years but this year the hotel itself was disappointing. The room was small but this is expected as it is not expensive and was very clean. But the shower room was beyond a joke and anyone over 12 stone would not be able to get on an off the lavatory and it was necessary after a shower to get dried in the room as they space was so small. And the dinner, which is served on the beautiful terrace on the beach, was very poor

Room Tip: Always book a room with beach view

Reviewed 10 July 2012 via mobile

The hotel really is a hidden gem. Directly on a private beach where we rented chairs and umbrella for the days. Restaurant is also on the beach and served delicious Mediterranean and Provencal dishes...and rose! Service is excellent and they thought of everything! Our only warning is the bathrooms are not updated and some- particularly the rooms with sea view and terrace - are very small. But for the price, this hotel is an excellent value and we would stay there again when in Bandol.

Reviewed 17 October 2011

The hotel is located directly on the beach. The rooms are quite small, really not much bigger than the bed. The sea-view terraces are very nice - the terrace for our room was almost as big as the room itself! The beach was very nice - the water is very calm, and there is also some nice snorkeling in the bay. The parking is directly across from the hotel. The hotel is at the end of a peninsula, so you have to drive all the way through town to reach the hotel. You are about a ~5 minute or less walk to the main shopping/eating area in Bandol.

The beach is not actually private - it is open to the general public. However, in season they do have a large deck, a place to shower off, and I believe they set out chairs for the people staying there (no comment on whether the Germans steal all the chairs at 6AM).

Reviewed 25 September 2011

Stayed here for three nights in September. The location is outstanding, right at the waters edge of the Renecross bay. The staff are friendly but you have to look for them as they are usually at the beach side snack area and bar. The inside restaurant was not open in the evening yet we still paid the high season rate!!. The bedrooms are just about adequate for size but the bathroom was built for small people only. Try showering, drying and dressing in the area available, it's quite a challenge! However, the sea view balcony from our room was worth the extra charges. We would/will probably return.

Room Tip: Book a room with sea view AND balcony

This hotel is in a wonderful position and, although some of the rooms have yet to be updated, the demi pension is good value. Dinner on the beach is lovely and the personal service of the owners is very friendly and they speak English! It is a short walk to the town centre
