For a three star hotel, Le Mirage has an unheated pool and when the Mistral is blowing, the water doesn't go above 20°. There is no restaurant and the hotel is miles from anything. There is not enough room in the parking lot for all the guests' cars and nowhere to park on the street. One of our bedroom doors... More

Very good room with view of pool. Excellent friendly staff. 20m pool which was good for swimming lengths with very pleasant shaded surrounds. Good location to get to lots of places by car (essential).There are two local beaches on the Etang and other callanques style beaches at Carre le Rouet (approx 40mins). Camargue is one hour of easy driving as... More

We chose this 3 star Hotel as it was convenient for visiting friends living in Confoux-Cornillon and to explore the Carmargue the next day. On arrival we were impressed by the gated development that had a large pool, bar/ restaurant close by and attractive Hotel building and grounds with ample parking. The reception was clean and well laid out. The... More

It's a nice site located among small towns without many amenities. I did not try the restaurant, but I should have because there was nowhere else to go at 9 pm.Too bad it was too cold for the pool, which looked very nice.

Unusually for a french hotel I have rarely seen this many tv channels on offer, especially foreign ones. Two thumbs up for that. I also liked the comprehensive breakfast and the helpful staff. The location is great for jogging in the nature with stunning views of the Berre lake from the woods. The downside was that the pool was frozen... More

Great hotel, will definately stay there again. The location is perfect for the wine country or the port towns. The staff was wonderful and they upgraded us to a bigger room when they found out we were on our honeymoon. Loved the pool and the breakfast room. Wish I was there right now!

A haven of peace in the city with its large garden and pool area. Great room decoration and newly renovated bathrooms (at least in our case). Nice breakfast and extremely helpful staff.

This hotel is in a great location to visit the Camargue, Les Baux and south Rhone cities of Arles, Avignon and Aix. Its just out of the small town of Istres with Martigues just down the road. On approach it looks good with a large pool at the front a very pleasant bar/ restaurant close by and ample parking in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
To stay at Hotel Le Mirage, is more like living at a resort than a hotel. An experience unlike most in the region. It is set in a private and enclosed pine tree park of over 5 hectares within the city of Istres in Provence. We sport a nearly half-olympic size swimming pool that will give you memorable and peaceful moments under the treetops. You could of course also swim at the nearby Etang de Berre or at the beaches of the Mediterranean sea as an alternative ! Istres itself is ideally positionned between Marseille (about 50km), Aix-En-Provence (about 40km) & Arles (about 25km) with access to all the main tourist sites or business areas of Provence. The Marseille Provence Airport is located exactly between Istres and Marseille. ... more   less
