Reviewed 23 May 2013

It's lovely to stay at this small and well kept hotel. The surrounding area with the pond and its birds is pretty and the hotel is well located a bit outside of Saintes-Maries de la Mer and a great starting point to explore the lovely Camargue by car. There are some outside chairs available where you can have a pic-nic. The pool is nice and clean.
The rooms are a bit small, however, nicely furnished and the superior rooms have a walk-in-shower which is very convenient. During the night it's absolutely quiet.
Breakfast is somewhat modest. Not a big variety at all. The coffee is fine.

Room Tip: The standard rooms are quite okay! No need to book a superior room. They are not so much bigger.

This was the last place that we stayed in on our trip to France, the most expensive of the four and by far the least nice. The staff were very nice and welcoming but unfortunately the room was not nice at all. It felt like a motel. The room was tiny - barely enough space to walk around the bed. There were no windows in the room so it was very dark and depressing. The door opened right into the room, like a beach hut, and had mosquito nets over it, which had holes in and were full of dead mosquitoes. The floor was dirty. The bathroom hadn't been updated for about 30 or 40 years. The hairdryer would only stay on for about 30 seconds before cutting out. The pool was quite nice and the communal areas and breakfast were fine, but the room was just horrible and it was such a shame to end our trip on this low note, especially as we were paying so much for it. The location isn't great either - it's too far to walk into town so we had to get taxis each way to get dinner. Saintes Maries de la Mer itself is a very, very touristy town. It feels a bit like a tacky British or Spanish resort. All the restaurants are very touristy indeed and it's difficult to find good food. Of course it is in the wonderful Camargue so you do get to see flamingoes, white horses etc. I don't know how Les Rizieres compares with other hotels in this town but I wouldn't recommend a holiday here.

We stayed for 5 nights during April. The room was decent, a typical French affair with tiled floor and opening on a courtyard - must be amazing in the summer. At night you could hear croaking frogs, and it is pitch dark. The hotel is set back from the main road into Ste Marie, but well before the town begins, and well placed for the flamingo bird ornithological park. Arles and other nearby towns were easy to reach. Parking is on the outside of the building, which has a courtyard in the centre, and usually there is a space right outside your own door. The breakfast was generous though French, that is no cooked option.

Many plus points to this hotel: easy access & parking, clean, functional bathroom & room with the added bonus of a fridge. The personnel is friendly & helpful.
Breakfast is self serve & sufficient.
But the rooms are situated around a courtyard and if you are unfortunate enough to be there when other guests are noisy, the courtyrad becomes an echo chamber. It was after 3am when we got to sleep. Furthermore the noise isolation between rooms is very poor.
It is bearable for one night but could become a problem for a longer stay

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the courtyard

If you are tired of moden hi-rise hotels, this place is for you. Laid out in a "u" shape, most rooms open up to a lovely garden/terrace in the centre. Although this not give you a lot of privacy, it offers people the opportunity to mingle with fellow travellers from all over the world.
There is a swimming pool on one side, and a lovely pond full of quacking ducks. A lovely sound to wake up to.
We chose the upgrade room for only 15euro more per night, and feel that it was worth it. The room was bright, nicely decorated and very clean.
You could enjoy a nice buffet breakfast on the terrace or the inviting breakfast room for 9euro per person.
We travel with our two small dogs who were welcomed the the owners small dog "pepsi-cola".
We enjoyed the laid back ambaince and the excellent service. Would definiely stay there again.

Room Tip: If you want to keep the budget down, you can bring your own food and keep it in the small fridge in...

We had planned to stay for three nights, but due to car trouble, we could only make it a one-night stay. What a huge disappointment it was for us! The hotel is neat and clean, the location is quiet and nature is very close. Keep an eye for the flamingos flying by! I saw them both in the morning (at around 7.30) and at sunset (about 20.30)

The buildings and the rooms are a bit worn out, but still in a good shape and functional. The pool was excellent, in a fenced-in area and very clean. Air conditioning in the room was very nice, the weather was very hot when we were there.

Breakfast was tasty, a good start for a day of exploring. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We will defenately return to Les Riziéres again.
