“Lovely setting, good value”
Reviewed 17 September 2011

We stayed here for six days in August 2011. Saintes-Marie itself is a lovely and very relaxing town. It has good beaches, plenty of restaurants, some interesting history and a pleasant pedestrian district. The Camargue plains, Aigues-Mortes, etc. are closeby.
The setting of the hotel is perfect. The hotel is located on the edge of town but within easy walking distance of the centre, even with a small child in tow. It has a fine swimming pool and it is literally one minute's walk across to a small sandy beach where swimming, even with a small child, is safe.
The room we had was of a fine size with a large balcony. The room was very basic but adequate, taking into account that this is a three star hotel. On the downside, there were bat droppings on the balcony so we weren't too happy about having our son playing on the floor on the balcony alone. We opted for the breakfast buffet, which we found excellent. The views over the sea in the mornings while eating breakfast were a pleasure. We didn't eat here in the evenings as there are so many restaurants in the town itself offering better value.
There are many spa facilities on offer at the hotel but we didn't use any of these.
The main criticism we would have of the hotel is that it has a generally battered look about it. It is a large place and obviously has many, manys guest passing through. It is obvious that their maintenance is inadequate to cope with this...broken doors in the corridors, dirty carpets, etc. As I said, the room itself was fine but the common areas were battered and in severe need of a good clean and a facelift.
However, all in all, very good value for money and we would certainly stay here again.

Reviewed 6 April 2010

The hotel is nicely situated for the beach, but is away from the central part of Saintes Maries. The town is hardly big, so that's probably not too much of the problem. The hotel is in need of redecoration. Our hotel room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The were no shutters to the windows, and our room facing the sea and the promenade allowed light to come in even with the thick curtains drawn.

I think if the sun is shining the hotrel would be more appealing, but it's cold and windy whilst we were there.

The breakfast buffet was barely adequate.

I think for those staying for the thalassothyerapie the hotel is probably, just, worth it. It's always convenient to have on site facilitities, but I really would look elsewhere if syaing in Saintes Maries again.
