We arrived on a drizzly Friday afternoon in early April 2015. It was very quiet and peaceful at this hotel when we arrived and remained so even after other guests arrived. We enjoyed a light salad and a bottle of wine in the bar area next to the pool upon arrival. We booked the Prestige Suite and it was lovely. Beautiful furnishings and décor in soothing white and light grey tones, plenty of space, a large comfortable king bed, a huge bathroom with double sinks and separate shower & tub, a large sitting/TV area with a sofa sleeper, and even an exquisite flower arrangement on the coffee table. It was upstairs so we had a small view of the ocean beyond the property and sea wall. Later we walked to a dinner at the St. Martin harbor (which is very close by). The front desk person (sorry can't remember his name at the moment) recommended a fabulous restaurant and then called to make sure we could be served at 9 PM. We had a great night sleep with the windows open to the sea air. The next day we enjoyed a very nice breakfast in the hotel café - high quality & plenty of offerings (both food & beverage wise). The spa area was fairly busy on Saturday and it is a pretty small operation but my massage therapist was excellent and I left there very relaxed. All the staff (hotel & spa) spoke excellent English and were VERY helpful.
The hotel sits next to remote beaches, with walks and cycle tracks to the nearby village. It's a couple of storeys high and was extremely quiet when we visited in October, though given the number of rooms and balconies would be quite busy in season. Small lounge area at reception and excellent food in the restaurant, if a little pricey. Complementary access to the spa, which was excellent, with outdoor terrace and pool leading to the beach. Rooms large but not especially well furnished - but great bathroom. Excellent, quiet stay, with fantastic food in the restaurant.

Had room on second floor which had good view of the sea and lighthouse. Room cleaned every day, friendly staff, good breakfast in nice surroundings. Very helpful staff recommended good places to eat in St Martin in the evening. Be prepared to pay if you want to park car in or near hotel but we were shown where to park for free for the entire time if you don't mind a walk.

We stayed for two nights in one of the pavilion rooms, at the lower end of their price range. Overall it was a pleasant room, with a little terrace outside with a couple of sun loungers. It was a little small, but not too bad. The outside of the room, shutters, etc. around the terrace could have done with painting, but overall it was OK. The hotel was excellent and the service was first class. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was excellent, albeit pricey. Breakfast was served outside around the pool and there was a good selection of different breakfast options available.
Hotel was very good with adequate amenities for a holiday hotel. The location was amongst caravans and tents with washing lines in full view of our patio terrace. The 200 metre walk to the beach was through the caravan park. The beach had no amenities and was unsupervised.

My partner and I had a very nice stay at the La Maree. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and it was also very quite despite it facing onto the main road. The road outside can be surprisingly busy at certain times but the sound proofing of the room meant we didn't notice any noise at all.
We arrived by car and we paid €7 per day to use the hotels secure carpark (located a 5 minute walk away)
Located off the coast of France, Ile de Re is encircled by sloping, sandy beaches. There are ten separate villages on the island, each boasting unique French heritage. Surfing, water skiing, sailing, horse riding, and bicycling are just some of the outdoor activities that draw visitors to the area.
