It's a small hotel. Rooms are nice, but nothing special. The best part of the hotel is its stuff. They are awesome. They make this hotel 5 stars. You should ask them about anything and they will give you an advice. They also order a table in restaurant for you or book some attractions. For example we were relaxing next... More

A quaint little place. Clean, friendly and on its way to even better and greater days, thanks to the efforts of the new, young owners. Breakfast is served with a great big smile and your wishes are addressed in a friendly and efficient manner. The rooms are clean and satisfy all the basic needs well. My favorite feature was the...

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was everything we had hoped for, absolutely wonderful, friendly and efficient staff, Aurielie couldn't have been more helpful even allowing me to practice my rudimentary french on her. The setting being literally adjoining the Camargue was ideal if your going for the wildlife and it was only 1km to Saints Marie. Breakfasts... More

We just returned from eight days at La Palunette. It's a simple, comfortable and likeable place. The pool is nice, the little verandah at the back of the rooms (with view of a Camargue horse) is also a great little extra. The room is very clean, the bed large and comfortable. Aircon is good. Given that this is just classed... More

The lovely horses, little Jongo the baby Chihuahua, the hungry cats, and the birds, which include flamingoes made this hotel one of the favorites of my trip to the south of France to visit sacred sites. Aurelie, the owner and proprietress was so kind and helpful and she spoke excellent English. I will be grateful to her to my dying... More

Firstly the good. We took advantage of a special offer so the room was very reasonable. Our little dog was welcome at no extra charge. The owner couldn't have been nicer and as a bonus, spoke excellent English. Breakfast was lovely with a freshly made smoothy as well as fresh croissants, bread etc. the room was small but clean.

A very friendly little hotel about 1 km outside Stes Maries. The rooms are smallish but modern and clean with A/C, a refrigerator, TV and a safe. Our room overlooked a typical Camargue landscape and we almost always had a white horse standing in the middle of it. Each room has a table and chairs outside on a deck area... More

A small and charming hotel. The friendliness of the owners and staff, the swimming pool, the clean and well-appointed room--with patio and view--were all welcome. Everyone went out of their way to make me feel at home and receive exactly what I needed, even if my scant French made that last point difficult. On top of all that the setting... More

The room was simple but clean, with a decent shower. The key here was the outstanding service. We arrived late one afternoon, but thanks to the owner, we were able to book an evening cruise (with discount) that same day, and ride the famous Camargue horses the next morning. The breakfast for 9 euros each was generous and tasty. Being... More

I thank everybody who advised to choose this hotel on tripadvisor. A lovely white horse in front of my patio, places for guided tours on a horse back just over the street and half an hour's walk to the beaches of Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer (but you may rent a bike too if you want to be there quicker). Quiet place as... More
