“A little disappointed”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

The hotel was more like a hacienda but a very empty one, possibly with reason. Booked last minute with booking.com at a more reasonable rate than normally charged but felt even then it was overpriced. We had two very, very large rooms over looking the garden and swimming pool.
The dark wood made the rooms look a bit dreary, but the large balconies with seating were pleasant and enjoyed the early morning sun. Massive amount of cupboard space, bathroom adequate with separate toilet. air conditioning was good. Breakfast was extra and extremely boring - should have left earlier and stopped at a café and would have been preferable. The pool was large and enjoyed sunbathing beside it on our arrival. Pleasantly surprised allowed to take bought drinks from the bar to the pool area to enjoy. Tennis courts were very close. A shame that the whole place had a feeling of lack of maintenance, the pool area needed to be smartened up as did the garden - manual labour and some cash injection to bring this hotel up to higher spec would have ensured more than the three or four rooms being used in July ! Not easy to find and certainly not within walking distance to beaches or St Tropez. The area was certainly different to areas we had been used to - must dusty, commercial - a little off the beaten track. Would I stay here again? Probably not unless it was upgraded. More guests staying would make it feel a little more alive - a bit depressing. Car parking outside - we were warned to not leave anything in it.

Room Tip: No lift, rooms with balconies with morning sun over looking pool

Booked at the last minute, based decision in part on positive trip advisor ratings.

Heart sank when we were shown the rooms. We hired a "2 bed villa" costing €520 per night. I know it is close to St Tropez, but this still cannot be described as cheap.

Good points. The "villa" was spacious, 2 separate bedrooms and bathrooms, a very small kitchenette, had a nice patio. The communal pool was very nice and clean, and the general look and appearance of the hotel was OK, but could be very good with some more effort. (Things just not finished off, as though they have run out of money).

The bad points. The villa was drab, lounge area sofas smelt slightly musty, furnishings and decoration were very poor taste and cheap quality. Very unwelcoming. The downstairs area had one solitary air conditioning unit that did not blow very cold at all. This was compounded by the fact that the wooden shutters outside the large patio windows were broken and would not close.

A further related problem is the small downstairs bedroom is around the corner and does not get any air flow directly from AC unit, and cannot be described as air conditioned at all. Worse still, the downstairs bedroom was next to the bathroom, where extractor fan did not work. We were told it is new and silent, maybe true, but after a bath or shower there was still steam around many hours later, which in plain English means it does not work.

You have to like St Tropez a lot to think it worth paying this sort of money for this sort of run down motel-type accommodation. We stayed on a previous visit at Ch Messardiere... different league. Stay here or similar and pay the difference or don't bother with St Tropez.

We did not complain, just did not want the fuss, and felt our concerns could not be resolved.

Final point. On the back of the bathroom door there is a sign advising guests that they will be billed for any "missing" towels. Perhaps this confirms all my concerns about the calibre of this establishment.

Room Tip: Don't stay unless you are shown the room first...perhaps hotel rooms are better than villas?

I found the stay at La Romarine a very good value. Hard to find hotels in the St Tropez area at less then 200 Euro x double room so we were pleasantly surprised to discover this one. It is located close to the beaches (still no walking distance) and to St. Tropez. The property is very attractive with its pool, tennis courts, garden and terrace. You can also rent a family villa even more convenient if you are 5 or 6 people. Reception and service in general are very good. Free wifi in the hall. Our room was spacious, clean and confortable with a nice balcony over the pool.
Only remark the breakfast wich is at 12 Euro but anything salty must be paid in addition (eggs, ham,,). Also the tennis is charged 10 euro.
