“Beach great MOTEL not so great”
Reviewed 22 August 2010

Ok, it's a MOTEL... but on the beach and a beautiful beach it is!!! Beach get's 5, but the motel get's a 3... service was ok, and food at the restaurant was actually pretty darn good.. Frankly best hamburgers we've EVER had! Our room $300e was facing the beach and we slept with our beach front doors open which was great falling asleep to the sound of the waves... loved it... Room was frankly poor but we weren't there for the room we went for the beach! and we didn't have to park, walk fight for a spot! That's the beauty of this place...

Having read some negative reviews I was a little concerned but decided to give it a go.No need to have worried. Breakfast is perfectly adequate with Cereal's Bacon Scrambled Egg Toast Orange Juice Tea and Coffee available. Parking is available free across the road . The Supermarket 50 mtrs away sells English Newspapers and everything you may need and a Deli next door to the Supermarket sells fresh Bagettues & Quiches for an inexpensive lunch/snack. The hotel is typical of a French 3 star in its decor but the staff were very helpful throughout . Our room was clean and cleaned Daily with fresh towels. The balcony view of the bay is terrific. Expect to pay 12 Euro's for each Sunbed but the beach is a great feature of this hotel. An indoor swimming pool adds to the amenities. Would definitely return and only negative was an English guy who demanded to change his room as the one he was allotted had an odour. However we experienced nothing like this in our 2nd floor room.

Excellent location in quiet little town. Twenty steps to the water! Huge rooms! Bathroom is divided into water closet and bathtub and sink, great for groups of four. Wonderful balcony view, patio furniture is a little wobbly but it does the trick! Breakfast buffet is by far the largest and most comprehensive we had in any of the hotels we stayed and we stayed at more than five. American style breakfast and still great breads, biscuits and of course croissants. The breakfast room is by the beach, with options to sit outside or inside. Great pizza place a few doors down. In off season we payed e$u50!!! Couldn't beat this bargain anywhere else.

We knew from TripAdvisor that it would be a tired hotel, so we were prepared, and enjoyed the beach and balcony. Every room on the 1st floor and above has a great view and deck. Parking and Internet were free, and A/C worked. Our room was clean enough. When you first walk down the hall to your room, you will be shocked at how run down it is, we had to play hop scotch with laundry thrown on the floor of the hall. Still on balance we liked it, and would go back.

We were really looking forward to revisiting the hotel in this fabulous bay. Although we were prepared to accept that things can change in 20 years. We just wern't prepared for what we got. Everything about the hotel is rundown except for the beach front patio. It really should be closed down and completely refurbed or sold on to someone that cares.
The buffet breakfast was poor quality, meager and insipid. It's such a shame and their Facebook entry is a real fantasy trip.

This was a nice hotel on the beach with a private balcony. The breakfast and bar staff were genuinely friendly and spoke English well. The beach chairs and beach itself is very nice here and was the perfect place to spend a day. Even in ancient times, Greeks and Romans thought this was a good beach (read about the settlement of Alconis).

If you have a car, you can drive up the hills into the wine country and stop at several different 'degustation' sites. Particularly nice wines around this area are the rose ones.

The hotel could be a bit cleaner, but the staff tried really hard. I think they had some plumbing issues in room 107 because the WC smelled awfully bad and they were trying to mask it with air freshener... ugh.

  • Liked — location right on a great beach, good base for the Var, breakfast buffet was actually really good
  • Disliked — WC smell

We were really looking forward to our 4 days at Hotel Calaviere sur Plage. We especially selected it as it was directly on the beach. Our second floor room, on first impression seemed OK and the view from the balcony was magnificent. On close inspection the room and the rest of the hotel was in a rather sad state. There were electric plugs hanging off the wall by the wires, chips and scratches everywhere. The room service trolley remained full of dirty linen on the landing throughout our stay. The waste bins by the lift were not emptied. The tiled floor in our room was not washed during our stay and probably had not been cleaned before we arrived. The main rooms of the hotel are austere and without atmosphere. The indoor pool did not look at all inviting. Breakfast was rather basic and taken in a totally characterless room, we did not have dinner it was extremely limited in choice. The general attitude of the staff was not very hospitable. We would award it just one star for being on the beach. The hamlet of Calaviere s Plage is a pleasant little relaxed town enjoying a fine safe bay for swimming.
