We stayed here for three nights in August 2014 to visit many of the DDay sites. St. Laurent sur Mer is part of the huge expanse of Omaha beach and is well placed to visit many of the other beaches together with Pointe du Hoc, the American Cemetery, Pegasus Bridge etc. We stayed in a family room which comprised a...

My family and I stayed a night as we hopped around Europe during July 2014 and found the accommodations acceptable and the friendly staff memorable. The restaurant is very convenient. Small things can make a trip great and I will remember the bartender offering samples to my very picky wife and recommending a strawberry dessert called Fraise Melba that the... More

The layout of this hotel is like lots of little cottages joined together by wooden boardwalks-- very beachy and casual- there were seating areas, boules courts and fire pits in the garden, which was enclosed by huge hedges. The main building with the restaurant is very inviting- couches by the fireplace and a warm staff. The restaurant features local fare... More

Just back from a wonderful stay at La Sapiniere. The hotel is so comfortable and the staff so warm and friendly. We love this place. The restaurant is lively and the food is absolutely delicious. We visited the usual local places; Bayeux, the landing beaches and also went to Mont St Michel. Thanks to Isabelle and her wonderful staff. See... More

We stayed here July 2013 and again over Labor Day that same year. Enjoyed it both times! The first time we went for the history and were not disappointed. The hotel is literally a stones throw from Omaha beach and about half mile from the American cemetery. There is an old German gun emplacement on the road down to the... More

We had seen the reviews and were not disappointed. The location is good, close to the beach. Rooms are chalet like and minimal, but clean, comfortable and spacious, with a very good walk in shower room and separate toilet. Our daughter enjoyed having her own space in the mezzanine. The breakfast was exceptionally good for a continental breakfast and included... More

Just minutes from Omaha beach. A fabulous location. Nice family room, with single beds for the kids in the open loft. A nice balcony. Room very clean but bathroom a bit dirty. Good food although breakfast quite expensive for what it was. Nice black out blinds - always a plus with kids!

My family has just spent a week at this hotel and we were very pleased with it. It is in a lovely location right on Omaha beach and is just a short walking distance from the memorial. The hotel is set in a very quiet and picturesque location and the accomodation is clean and tidy. The staff are very friendly... More

Arrival at la Sapiniere was a pleasure and a surprise. I loved the beaches at Normandy, and was in awe of the history surrounding this area. Room was clean, spacious, and had great shower and bed. Food was good. The staff were attentive, but laid back and everything went smoothly.

This beach hotel is an excellent location to spend some time in Normandy. Right in the middle of the landing beaches of d-day, the nature is superbe and the service of the hotel personnel is outstanding.
