We stayed here 2 nights and loved this very impressive hotel. The staff is first rate, the rooms are spacious and beautiful with comforable bed linens and fluffy towels. The restaurant with it's view of the sea is excellent . The location couldn't be better, surrounded by many upscale shops and restaurants. For the rich and famous! There was a... More

As you drive into the grounds of the hotel you are confronted with a beaux arts palace sitting alone above the beach in Biarritz . You are overcome with the classic grandeur and the exquisite service. You join many of the greats of recent history in staying at this hotel. The rooms are pleasant and well equipped.

If you are ready to soak up the luxury and opulence of Napolean's Former Palace in Biarritz, France.. then this is your number one Hotel. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite but were advised the suite would not be ready for an hour or so, which was fine given we arrived early, therefore we had lunch by the pool,... More

Located right by the ocean in Biarritz, with beautiful oceanview suits, makes the stay unforgettable. The service was amazing. Yes the price is high but the minor things were all included, like valet parking, breakfast,etc. bathrooms have undergone renovations. Outdoor and indoor pools with excellent poolside services.

We spent 6 days at the hotel. Where to begin... With the positive I guess: Picture perfect location, grandiloquent building with jaw dropping lobby and ocean views from the restaurant. The decor and paintings hint everywhere at the hotel's History: the Palace was built as a Summer villa for Empress Eugenie and Napoleon III (nephew and heir of Napoleon I)... More

Where do I start? I'll keep it short, but sweet............ A grand hotel with beautiful rooms, stunning views, delicious cuisine and superb staff. We spent 5 wonderful days here and we're most impressed from start to finish. Will definitely be on my list of places to return to.

We can only afford to eat here once a year to celebrate our daughter's birthday. Spectacular views by the windows in the Rotonde restaurant, excellent service and top notch cuisine. Book in advance and specify the Villa Eugenie (a separate dinning room) menu (expensive but worth it), although the Rotonde menu is excellent but only just more modest prices. Men... More

This historical hotel has a soul and a unique personality, which is a huge difference compared to most commercial hotels. Rooms facing the Atlantic offer a gorgeous ocean view and you can't stop watching the rippling waves and the environment. We enjoyed the indoor pool which is small but pleasantly designed, as well as the spa and the hammam. There... More

Hotel du Palais is magnificent, both in terms of its architecture, style and location. For me however, it was the effortless grace and generosity of the staff, from pool side to restaurant, which made this a very memorable family holiday. This is a wonderful gem of a hotel and unlike similar historic hotel venues, manages to combine modern attitudes and... More

I woke up early last Monday and was on my own in the "Rotonde" (amazing restaurant room with 180 degrees ocean view) for breakfast. I was welcomed by the most charming young gentleman and presented the buffet full of amazing pastries, local charcuterie and other savoury delicacies. I sat there for an hour on my own, watching the ocean...what a... More
