I am sorry but we were really disappointed this time. We debated whether to come as the price had risen but we booked anyway. Our room was small and not very attractively furnished. In fact, when we were lying in bed, our view was of a blank beige wall with a television on it and we felt as though we... More

Walk to everything. Personification of St.-Jean-de-Luz. Very accommodating, cheerful, friendly service. 2 night stay in delightful, spotless rooms. Breakfast room or terrace lovely. Selection of lovely breads, fruit & luscious yogurt for breakfast - eggs & meat upon request. We were afforded the use of their garage as well. All staff wonderfully helpful. Recommending to our friends, and hope to... More

Meda at the reception was amazing. He was extremely helpful and a great guy- very patient. He helped us make restaurant reservations, gave us a room upgrade and even helped us park our car. The hotel as a whole is quaint and in a good location to the city centre (then again, the town is very small and most hotels... More

What a quaint beautiful hotel in the middle of Saint-Jean-de-Luz this is! Highly recommend it. Walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. We were welcomed and guided through this beautiful town. Enjoy the quiet atmosphere of La Marisa Hotel where opening your bedroom windows the smell of nature gets in. Excellent! Excellent! Love the Basque French and Spanish country.

This hotel saved the last part of my trip to the Basque region from becoming a disaster. I was booked into another hotel nearby (part of a group) that was uninhabitable for me due to chemical sensitivity (the room was marinated in air freshener probably because they allow smoking). The tour manager scrambled around to find another place for me... More

We had a short stay at the La Marisa a few weeks ago. The staff really goes above and beyond to make your time at the hotel the best. The location is perfect, walking distance to the train station, central square and the beach. The room was clean and confortable. We slept so well and enjoyed our breakfast in the... More

We spent four nights in mid September, in room 301 (3rd floor). There's an elevator so handling luggage was not a problem. We requested this room for its tiled stall shower and window with a partial sea view. The room is not large but was adequate for my husband and me. The Queen bed was comfortable and the powerful ceiling... More

Very welcoming staff, we had a reserved a private parking for our car, which was ready on our arrival. The rooms are basic but very clean, comfortable and cosy. The whole hotel experience is jean-du-luzesque, would highly recommend it.

The hotel is beautifully furnished, the room was very quiet and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. The location is perfect - close to the beach and to the shops. We shall be back next year... More

A great find. Literally a stone's throw from the beach, this hotel is quiet, clean and charming. I have never encountered friendlier staff in all my travels, nothing was too much trouble. We would love to go back.
