From what we could see, we think this hotel has the best location in La Ciotat. It is right on the waterside of the old port. Staff were always polite and went out of their way to help us particularly on our final day when we needed a taxi to the train station. None was available and so M. Pradier, the hotel manager, took us there himself in his car. Just one example of the helpfulness of the staff.
Roof top pool is impressive if a little soulless. The hotel doesn't appear to have a bar, and although there are plenty nearby it might be nice to be able to have a drink by the pool.
we were pleasantly surprised to find that in July and August there is a market every evening in La Ciotat, which made for a great atmosphere. We travelled on Eurostar to Marseille and then by SNCF to La Ciotat. Note the train station is a long way from the port and not easily accessible so a bus might be a better option.
All in all we would visit la Ciotat again and stay at this hotel.
our stay @ the Hotel Miramar was very enjoyable. our room had a tiny balcony that faced the water and it was very nice to fall asleep to the sound of the surf. although i found it looking for a hotel in Cassis, it is not really in that town. but it was a lovely resort area. the fish & mussels in nearby restaurants were delicious.
the only negatives were: our French was minimal & the staff English was the same - and the room was a little small. we would definitely return (hoping for a slightly larger room.)
Pleasantly surprised by Victoria Gardens and nice reception by Stephanie who spoke good English. Our room was on ground floor in front of the nice pool where our children spent a lot of time... Shame the pool had to close at 7pm in summer.
Would we come back? Yes. A modestly priced self catering apartment handy to La Ciotat so long as you have a car.
We enjoyed our 1 night stay. The staff were very helpful and the hotel is well located in relation to the sea front. The room was clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was also totally adequate.
