In contrast to the beautiful Province bastide we had stayed in the previous 2 nights, this was a contemporary hotel but with all the key ingredients for a perfect night by the sea. Warmly welcomed into our 4th floor junior suite, with stunning view from a large balcony right out onto the Med which was just below us, and a large pool in between. Great pool bar and restaurant too and again, superb local rose wine, served ice cold and the perfect blush colour. Pool side service too so you are never without a drink in your hand if you so wish. 2 restaurants - a less formal one at beach level and their restaurant gastronomique on the terrace overlooking the sea. We did not dine at the hotel however and chose to drive into St Tropez for the night which is only 25 minutes away. And returned to have a nightcap on the balcony with the sound of the waves lapping the beach below and the light of the nearby lighthouse bouncing off the sea. We were only there for one night but I would suggest it's a fantastic base for couples or families looking to spend a longer holiday in one place as well as being close to other spots like St Tropez and Ramatuelle.

Found this lovely hotel by accident travelling around the coast. Stayed one night in June. Lovely receptionist gave us the tour round and explained all the areas of the hotel before showing us into Room 547, which had an amazing view from our balcony over the crystal blue sea. Room was well equiped with comfortable bed and lots of little luxury items. Private beach with sunloungers were a welcome sight after our long day traveling. Dinner was served in the lovely resteraunt which again had lovely views and a realxed atmosphere. Our two course dinner was divine and the waitresses knowlege and the description of the dishes were helpful in our choice. The wine water also helped us in choosing our locally produced wine. Breakfast was a massive spread of anything you could wish for. I would love to return for a longer stay if our budget allowed. All the staff were very helpful and polite without being stuffy or overfriendly. Free wifi was also included. I would thourghly recomend this hotel for a treat.

We spent four nights at the Bailli de Suffren and enjoyed every moment. Our room 219 oversaw the beautiful and quiet bay just above the hotel's beach. From the moment we arrived the staff was very friendly, always greeted and helpful. The food at the breakfast buffet as well as the room service was perfect. Swimming at the beach was great. The beach itself isn't huge but it will do if you don't want to spend all day there. I can highly recommend this quiet little cosy place.

Me and my wife stayed here for one night in april. We where stunned by the location and atmosphere of this place. If you are in the area, this is the perfect place for a few days of romantic getaway. We would love to go back soon.

I have just returned from a week' s family holiday at Le Bailli de Suffren. Trip Advisor opinions varied so was a little concerned before we arrived. However I can now highly recommend it. The decor is lovely - very tasteful French Provencal. The rooms are spacious and sea facing - great Mediterranean views - big comfortable beds - and most rooms seem to have balcony

Staff are friendly and helpful It is a child friendly place and there were quite a lot of children staying there which suited us as we were with a young child. People looking for absolute tranquillity could find the number of kids in the pool disturbing at this time of year.

Food in the main gourmet restaurant pretty good. We liked the Menu Ephemeral at 58 euro which offers several courses including amuse bouches etc... But we preferred the smaller more informal restaurant beside the beach - great in the evening or at lunchtime.
Drinks come up a bit pricey in all restaurants. Bottles of wine mostly around 25/30 euro and up - six or seven euro for a coffee. Buffet breakfasts served on the spacious terrace overlooking the sea are good.

As for the hotel s beach - it is suffering a bit from erosion and some local storms sometime ago - and we were told it is smaller than a few years ago. It seems to vary with the tide - it is still good to swim from and there is a nice decking area with sun beds . We were also very pleased to find a far larger , golden sandy public beach a few yards from the hotel too .This has its own little restaurant and sunbeds and is great for swimming and beach sport . It is also surveyed by local lifeguards

There is a nice local village a ten minute uphill walk (steps through attractive gardens most of the way) - there is a reasonably good restaurant there, pharmacy, tabac and supermarche. From there you can catch a nice air conditioned bus to Le Lavandou to the west or even St Tropez to the west.

The apartments are tucked away , look attractive, but no sea views and I was told residents could not use hotel pool..


Would definitely like to return to this hotel - budget permitting - and the area which is quiet, very pretty and not too touristy.

Room Tip: Rooms at higher level - fif fourth floor - are pricier and some larger. They probably have better s...

We stayed a week in the residence (apartment). We had a "garden view" which faces a blind wall. Apartment had a terrible smell in the first few days.
Also it might be disappointing but you don't have access to the swimming pool. This is restricted and for Hotel guests only.
The nearby public beach however is nice.
Just be aware that the the hotel and residence have little in common apart from their name.
