Further to the positive review on the food, we decided to book this hotel. We had a nice stay in a triple room so with an extra bed for our daughter and an extra baby cot for the youngest. Although the pictures on the website let me believe the hotel was located apart from the city: it is in a... More

Very nice and comfortable hotel. Price/Service ist absolutely correct, Nice and friendly personal. To make it even more comfortable it would be an idea to have some reserved parking spaces for the hotel guests.

An unusually stylish hotel in otherwise simple and modest old French beach town, les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. The Vila de la Mar is a renovated old motel, relatively in th center of town (a few minutes walk from commercial center, but already still part of town center), styled in white, and beachy, and with a young professional and attentive staff in uniforms,...

This hotel was a bit of a surprise. An Ibiza esq hotel in a French seaside town. The room was very large with a terrace that was set up as a garden, great for kids. Lovely pool, a very nice stay. We weren't too keen on Saintes Maries de la mer. It felt a little bit like the French Brighton... More

Fantastic little boutique hotel. Great for family , close to the beach and restaurants - but at the quieter end of town. Only mistake we made was not staying longer - we were there on a one night stopover on our way from Barcelona to Cannes - sadly would prefer to stay there any day over Cannes!!

+ Nice hotel 100 metres from the sea. Very friendly personnel and clean rooms. Nice sushi. Lovely pool. Good continental breakfast - limited food choice (why no seafood (oysters!!; harbor nearby) Rooms are rather small (for a junior suite) We had a lovely stay and probably will return when in the neighbourhood!

Ok so the hotel looks nice as soon as you walk in and even the room looks nice. But staff hardly speak any English. I do like the design of the rooms even though they have decorated it all with IKEA furniture but to be honest for what you get it is extremely over priced. I Stayed in a 4... More

....if the guy who runs the place would invest in good staff. (right now the place seems to be run by internship students) We were sitting @ breakfast and waited and waited because the poor intern couldn't handle it and the "boss" was sitting in the background at his PC giving advice... he didn't even bother saving the situation...
