The breakfast is just fantastic, full baskets of pastries, breads, organic butter, handmade jams, fresh squeezed orange juice and organic iogourt , spresso... More

It's ok, but overrated. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The Yard is beautiful. Everything is clean and neat. But: Breakfast is only medium. The Street in front of the Hotel is quit noisy in morning hours. Standard rooms are rater small.

This hotel is very close to the beach and town on a small one way street. a little difficult to find, but worth the effort. The staff are excellent, the rooms comfortable and although small are very adequate, with good shower rooms and comfortable beds. There is an elevator which is an advantage in small hotels. We were on first... More

You will not go wrong here. The service is friendly and English-friendly, the place is clean, the location is tres convenient, and the price is right. I can understand well its #1 rating in St. jean. The rooms are smallish but not inconsistent with most European hotels. The continental breakfast is quite good and reasonably priced. No complaints at all... More

Lovely small hotel on a quiet street in the centre of town. Beach is practically outside the door. Rooms are on the small side so worth booking one of the larger rooms if possible. Very comfortable with good beds, newly refurbished bathroom in most rooms. Free wifi is fast and the service from v friendly staff is excellent. Highly recommended.

La Marisa is 50- 100 metres from the sea and on top of the centre of St Jean de Luz. The hotel is very clean, rooms well apointed and layed out with a lovely courtyard at the back. But as has been noted by others, it is the people that make La Marisa the special place that it is. Sylvie... More

This hotel is rated #1 in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, France. It was on that basis that we chose to stay there and it is on that basis that I can't add a thing to what has been said by so many others. Its a small hotel, so I am sure during the high season, its hard to get a room there.

Quiet, high-quality, clean & cozy, this charming hotel is a minute stroll from the beach. Breakfast is local &/or organic, wifi is strong, beds are comfy, and the bathroom is shiny. Run by two lovely, helpful managers, w/a cozy salon And off the beaten path!
