We stayed at Hotel du Palais for three nights. The hotel has the best location of Biarritz facing the ocean. The view is absolutely spectacular!! The hotel itself is beautiful, but the pooldeck is very disappointing. No sunbeds - only plasticchairs for the guests. If you do want a sunbed, as you normally would at a five star hotel, you'll...

So you can tell from my title, I believe perception of quality is subjective. Everything depends on your expectations. We arrived in Biarritz having virtually no expectations whatsoever, manned only with a requisite history of the former summer palace of Napoleon III and Eugenie. Pulling up to the magnificent gates of the Hotel du Palais, we knew we made the... More

Traditional French grand hotel with elegant and sophisticated interior, great location close to the beach, wonderful ocean view from the room. The room - beautiful, fancy and comfortable. Service - great with friendly and always happy to help staff. Restaurants - exquisite, other facilities - convenient and efficient. We enjoyed our stay greatly!

Location: Right on beach with two-thirds of rooms enjoying sea views. Service: everyone is pleasant and helpful with a surplus of staff always around but not intrusive. Concierge are mega resourceful. Building: slightly faded elegance only enhances the feeling of luxury and being a part of history. Ambience: It's like you inhabit a magnificent private palace overloking the resort town... More

This hotel was so accommodating even though I was just there for the day. I had lunch by the sea and the staff was wonderful The hotel was beautiful and food fantastic. Although this hotel was posh and I was not staying over, they were not stuffy. Everyone was happy and wanted everyone to have a great time. They even... More

This is a very traditional grand hotel and can be very formal. The rooms are beautiful. Our's was large with a view of the beach and lighthouse. I would recommend this. The room was not ready when we arrived (after the normal check in time and a long drive) and the staff just shrugged and told us we could wait... More

A beautiful setting for a beautiful building. Historic charm and grace with first class modern facilities and comfort. Service exceptional and charming staff. Perfect beach front location with sea breeze and views over the bay, but within a short walk of the town centre, bars and restaurants. Highly recommended.

My husband and I treated ourselves to cocktails on the terrace at sunset. It was a spectacular view and awesomely beautiful. The hotel is very decadent and the history attached to it made it special. From Coco Chanel to Hemingway to Sinatra, I loved reading about its past guests. It is found at the end of the beach and high... More

This was my first trip to Biarritz after having travelled to St. Tropez and Cap D'Antibes many times. Hotel du Palais ranked up with the best hotels I have stayed at in any of those locations. The hotel is situated on an amazing beach, with a beautiful pool area. The rooms are large and accomodating and have beautiful views. The... More

From the first greeting at reception to the last, our experience with all the staff was nothing but the best. In a hotel this size, they even manage to be personable. Room was large and opulent with a separate dressing room and a lovely view of the lighthouse. I would have preferred a walking shower rather than shower over the... More
