We spent four nights here in a room that had a partial view of the bay. Excellent location, very helpful staff, and all around excellent stay. Our 3 year old daughter was along and loved it as well; and the staff were very accommodating. Would most certainly stay here again if we are back in Ste. Maxime.

I had a good experience at the hotel. It was a little pricey due to the season but I didn't mind. The staff was really nice and the pool was pretty decent as well. Rooms were clean and decent too. The beach isn't far from the hotel along with shopping and nice restaurants. The ferry is about a 10 min... More

I was in Hotel Matisse with my family a few weeks ago. We wanted an hotel in the centre of Sainte Maxime, close to the port, to be easily connected with Saint Tropez. The choice was perfect! The staff is very kind, the parking for the car is very close and can be reserved. The family room was not very... More

We have stayed two days and we have enjoyed every minute there ! The facility is maintained in good shape and you really get value for money. But much more than this is the outstanding service of the entire staff - you always get a smile which comes from the bottom of their hesrt. Chapeau !

Stayed there by chance as the booking for our villa had been mishandled. Turned out to be a great misfortune as we found a little gem. They have just done quite a bit of renovation to the public areas. Very clean and comfortable rooms, if a bit small for a longer stay. Great little pool and good food for both... More

We stayed at this beautiful boutique hotel for one night during our road trip through France. The room was a junior suite as there was 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The room was lovely with complimentary robes, slippers and sweets/chocs for everyone on the beds. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do more for you. I would definitely recommend... More

It was time for the annual pilgrimage to Ste Maxime, Ascension weekend destination rest, relaxation and the odd glass of rosé! Our usual hostelry had undergone a name change and a face lift (Hôtellerie de la poste was no more) so would this signal the end of an era? Would disappointment cloud our usually fabulous time??
