“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We were on holiday with our family on the mainland but my husband and I slipped off to spend a cheeky night here leaving the kids with their grandparents. What a delightful, tranquil place! The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. We had booked parking which was recommended and I would advise the same. We stayed in room 20 - a deluxe room with huge bed and separate seating area...it wasn't massive but it was beautifully furnished and well kept and was perfect for us. It also opened out on to the very quiet adult pool which was a bonus. Breakfast was excellent...such a shame we couldn't stay longer.

The Clos Saint Martin is a classy little hotel on the edge of the capital town/village on the lovely island of Île de Ré.

PROS
Good location on the edge of Saint Martin town
Nicely kept
'Summery' feeling (think whitewashed French country style or New England style)
Friendly and service-minded staff
Two swimming pools (one is adults only)
Great breakfast by the hotel gardens
Good & free wi-fi

CONS
Parking gets full (so book parking ahead of time or be prepared to walk 5-10 min from the public parking)
Grounds are a bit cramped (since it's in a medieval town where space is lacking)
Lack of privacy in many rooms (since they open to the pools where other guests sit out)
Very few rooms have any kind of external views
A bit expensive for what you get

Room Tip: If you want privacy, avoid rooms that face directly towards the swimming pool (other guests will be...

Dear Guest,

What an amazing review, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It is very interesting for us to get such a complete comment from check in to check out. We have shared your comments with our team and they were all very proud.

I note your comment regarding our carpark and privacy in some of our rooms. Effectively our carpark is small but we try to make it as comfortable as possible with our valet parking service. Concerning privacy in rooms, we also offer rooms overlooking private patio that we would be glad to make you discover during a next stay.

All our team and myself remain at your entire disposal to organize we hope a future stay with us very soon.

Sincerely yours.

This a beautiful hotel in a great location with superb staff. From arrival until departure we could not have wanted for more. Yes the car park is small - but our large estate car fitted everyday. The two pools were immaculate one for families and one for adults. Our room was immaculate, clean, welcoming and very comfortable - the A/C was a bonus and much needed. The breakfast was absolutely 'scrummy' with everything you could ask for and again the service was always with a smile! We will stay again - thank you

My 6 yr old son and I spent 2 nights in this wonderful hotel. It had an almost 'family run' feel to it. All the staff were extremely helpful with ready smiles. We stayed in room 23,a deluxe suite. I'd recommend this room. Beautifully
decorated in neutral tones with a very good size bathroom (large separate shower).
The breakfast room was beautifully laid out with a good selection of breakfast items. A basket of breads and pastries arrived as soon as we sat down.
Although this looks like an adult orientated hotel, children were welcomed. There is an adults only pool on the other side of the hotel. We hired a bike at the hotel and cycled on the paths around the island. It was a lovely few days.
We really enjoyed our st a yams wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

We just came home from a more than excellent stay at Le Clos St.-Martin.
The hotel is on a short walking distance from the old port of Saint-Martin, that is the largest city of Ile de Ré, with the most shops and restaurants.
Two beautiful swimming pools, one kept at 24°C and the other at 28°C.
Nice breakfast and very kind staff.

Room Tip: We got lucky to have Room 18, which is a superior room (spa access included) with a nice private ter...

This is not the right place to go with children. You will be disappointed. If you are looking for an upper class people place there you go. All the rooms are rather small for a luxury hotel and build on a small parcel of land that makes you feel uncomfortable. It's simply too compact. Less rooms with more space would be much better.
On top of this the place is not really quiet as build on the main road and not really well protected from the sound of the surrounding. If you get room number one you will get the noise of the air conditioning equipment all the night with you.
We changed the room there after a terrible first night and got relocated to the so called "villa" which is a great upgrade but we would have to be able to get a good room on a first hand.
The Parking for 13 Euro per day is just a joke as there is simply no space on this one.
The breakfast and especially the service is not the money worth. Service people don't even know how to silently and cleanly remove dishes from a table and won't give you much attention.

Room Tip: Refuse number 1, it's noisy and also all the ones directly on the pool and bar or you will have...

Dear Mr C,
First of all, we would like to say that we are quite surprised to find such a comment on tripadvisor following your recent stay in our hotel.
You’ve made your booking in a superior room for 2 adults.
Our hotel offers several kinds of rooms from superior room of 25m² until prestige suite of 45 m².
On your arrival, you arrived at 3 people instead of 2. At this very busy time of the year, we finally found you a first solution, in a deluxe family room to welcome you comfortably with your family.
On the second day, you came at reception, telling us that the air conditioning disturbed you and that you had a difficult night. It is true that in July and with the actual very high temperatures, the air conditioning is working all night along.
We offered you an upgrade to our 2 exteriors rooms of la Villa du Clos, each one of 30m², with a private heated pool 12m * 6m, and a private garden of 1100 m², at the same rate than the deluxe room….
Concerning the car park, we offer 20 places at a 13€ daily rate, so half price than the municipal car park. Our team is also at our client disposal to park cars and offer this service to each client.
We are sorry that you did not find the hotel quiet, with a good quality of service or with enough exterior space, as we are well-known for that. Also we are the only hotel in Saint Martin de Ré to offer: 2 heated pools, a 1500m² garden and a breakfast room with a 70m² terrace. Our international team is recognized for its availability and service qualities.
The most surprising is that you told myself and all our team how you enjoyed your stay and how la Villa du Clos was such a wonderful place to stay for family holidays….
Following the important upgrade you get and all the efforts made by our team to make your stay as comfortable as possible we really think that this comment is absolutely unfair.
Sincerely yours.
