“Super base, wonderful food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2010

Room was good size, bathroom large, kept very clean, cleaners even found an earring I had lost. Good location, we walked into Saintes Maries each day, it was a way of using up some of the calories taken in..... The evening meals (3 nights) were excellent, breakfast is buffet style but a good selection available. Thought the hotel was good and service also. Saintes Maries was slightly 'tacky' but interesting and a climb to the top of the church is worthwhile for the view.

Very pleased with this hotel. Room on the small side, but comfortable. Bathroom was big and beautifully decorated. We stayed two nights and had dinner there one night, which excelled our expectations - really good, and excellent service. Sitting at dinnner looking out over water at horses and a "beaver" native to that area swims by. heaven. There is a small pool but we didn't use it. It felt a bit close to the carpark and main entrance. While service in the mornings over breakfast and at dinner was professional and friendly and excellent, we found the gentleman at main reception gruff and not very welcoming. You can book horseriding at the hotel - stables on site. Not really any place to sit out and enjoy views, but you really are here to explore the Camargue and see the wildlife - and that is definitely what we did. Driving around the roads of the Camargue it is hard to appreciate the wildlife - you need to go to one of the "ecology centres" and pay a small fee to walk the trails. WELL worth it: diverse array of insects, spectacular birds, frogs, flamingo, horses, bulls (bred for bullfighting) and these wonderful little beaver-like coipu.
We thought the town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer was awful - tacky seaside town at its worst. Staying at this hotel, you are lucky you have no need to go into the town, and with so much wildlife and horseriding to entertain you and easy access to such fabulous cities as Arles and Aix-en-provence why would you bother going into SM de la M?

A lovely stay in the little piece of heaven that is Saintes Maries-del-a-mer.

Stayed only for one night...but wish we could have stayed longer.

Hotel offers rustic provincial rooms...set menu dinner on site (but town centre only minutes by car away)...breakfast was ample & location perfect.

We would return...& recommend to family & friends.
