Comfortable hotel for a short stay.

Posted 27-Oct-2015
Spent two nights here. The bedroom was very large and comfortable. Reception staff were polite and friendly. The service at the sports bar was very slow. The indoor pool could do with a facelift and somebody to clear the dirty towels left lying around. Despite these few niggles it is a lovely hotel and we would stay here again.

great place

I always look forward to playing the golf course each summer when I am in France. The course layout is excellent, though the bunkers are terrible unfortunately, other than that the condition is AAA+. The hotel room was excellent, i had a great view over the pool and 18th hole, towards the ocean. Awesome. The food was very good, service was friendly although a little flustered at times. Will be back this weekend to play 2 more rounds.

Beautiful property - Needs updating

Hotel is good but the rooms are getting a little tired. Service very friendly and nice. Poor availability of food in the bar area. Breakfast a little limited. The location makes up for everything though. Stunning!

Hotel Dolce Fregate, Bandol

Posted 29-Jul-2011
Bandol is upmarket. Like almost all towns on the Riviera, it is centred around its marina. The main street is lined with cafes, from executive to above average. Over, or around the hill, is its clean beach which curves a calm warm bay. The town (almost) competes with St Tropez (about 1 1/2 hour's drive north-east) for class (size of yacht) and expense of purchases. But Bandol is not so pretentious. The towns on either side (Sanary-Sur-Mer and Saint-Cyr-Mer) are similar to Bandol, but less pricy - good places something to eat. Cyr-Sur-Mer's beach is at Les Lecques. It stretches for miles, with rolling waves. Perched villages sit in the hills behind. The area is unmistakably French, off the tourist run from St. Maxime to Monaco. Dolce Fregate is a classy golf resort. The complex is idyllic. Circled by villas for rent, the large, well maintained pool over three levels is an oasis of tranquility. The resort is about half way between Bandol and Cyr-Sur-Mer (each about 3 miles away). An amazing coastal path is nearby. Otherwise, car hire is a must if you want to go outside the resort. The rooms are clean and well sized, but need a little refurbishment. Their balconies look over the pool (though are far enough away that noise is not a problem) and on over the countryside to the sea - picturesque. Critisism - bar service is slow and unorganised. The food and drink is over-priced. Holidaying at Dolce Fregate is superb, as long as you have cash and eat out...

Didn't want to leave

Posted 09-Jun-2010
I haven't taken many vacations were I didn't want to leave, but this was one place I could have stayed for a very long time. The grounds were beautiful, veiw amazing, and room was so Italian Cute. I felt I was in a movie with the view out the window and the room a fun little italian, southern france villa type room. We didn't eat breakfast or dinner at the hotel because it is very expensive. However the small frig in the room was prefect for fun breakfast treats from the local grocery store and the the terrance with the view in the morning was priceless. Absolutely worth the money.

Beautiful location, superb golf...shame about the restaurant service

Posted 25-Aug-2008
6th trip back to this hotel so explains a lot! Hotel has undergone big facelift so has feel of a classy hotel in its own Provencal village. Facilities excellent - unbeatable golf, beautiful vistas, pools in nice surroundings. Real place to relax. Warning - "suite resorts" are a LONG walk from the reception, several elevators or stairs. Although have kitchenette comes with no equipment so a waste of space BIG gripe - restaurant service apauling, staff not able to cope once a few tables are occupied. You are left without menus, you can wait an age for an apperitif which comes after your starter course if you are unlucky. After waiting nearly an hour for a bill one night we gave up and walked out, some people gave up in disgust and never got to eat. Don't ask for anything out of the ordinary - it is just to much for them. Check the bill, there is a high chance it is wrong, especially if you have kids as they charge for the adult menu even if they have the kids buffet. All the head waiter does is waft around waving his arms - totally out of control of his waiting staff who seem to be a bunch of students - this is supposed to be a high end place. Bar service is similar - you can sit for ages with no service, you have to flag someone down before anything materialises.

Helpful but disorganised staff. Pleasant location.

Posted 18-Aug-2007
Pleasant hotel in a pretty location - but too far from any village to walk there so mostly reliant on what's on offer at the hotel. Staff were polite and helpful but the organisation of breakfast and rooms on arrival meant lengthy waits. For those who don't want to play golf there are attractions half an hour to an hour away, but the coastal towns were very difficult to get into because of queuing traffic and insufficient parking.
