The best part of the hotel is the garden/ courtyard setting which is very pleasant and the pool whilst it is tired and could do with a bit of maintenance gets the sun and is quite.
The staff were generally helpful and in particular Thom who was really going out of his way to help you enjoy your stay. The hotel style is very rustic so if you like everything pristine and immaculate this hotel may not be for you.
There are a few negatives. Main one is there is NO air conditioning despite what the website says. There was an air conditioning unit in our room and it did switch on with a very feint sound of air being moved but had no effect on chilling the room. After the first morning I had a look around and the air conditioning unit was not connected to external air and was not going to work!
The hotel itself is in a quite location and is fine when you are in the hotel but there is nothing close by in terms of bars restaurants. I do like to have a wander around and wherever I'm away always like to use the 'real' locals bars but there is nothing near this hotel that you would want to go to.
You rely on the taxis here and the hotel had real difficulty in getting taxis. It was the Euro's so maybe on normal weekends taxis are not such an issue.
The breakfast in the hotel was fine but no English breakfast available but a good continental breakfast. The main menu was very limited with only four main courses available and with young children or choosy eaters will be an issue
The hotel is on the coast road out of the town centre. It is hardly visible from the road, as is built into the side of a limestone cliff. The reception is at ground level and the bedrooms and bar etc are underneath. The outlook is stunning. We had a superior sea view room that faced west over the small island that include the old Chateau D'if.
The staff are lovely and the hotel is well appointed and spotlessly clean, with lots of areas to sit and relax. We didn't get the chance to visit the pool, but it looked lovely.
Food and drink are expensive, and the range of bar snacks in the evening is very limited.
There are bus stops just outside - take the 83 to and from the Vieux Port.
Great stay and the most comfortable bed in an hotel ever!
