We made a point of not reading any of the reviews before deciding to stay here for 4 nights on an 8-day holiday on the French Riviera. However, now that I have, the majority of criticism seemed to be about the level of service, attention to detail etc and it was interesting to read management responses to those. Sadly, despite...

The Farandole is brilliantly situated on the Bay of Bandol and sits right in front of the beach, which means that rooms with a sea aspect have a quite fantastic view. We had such a view, although no balcony - in fact, many of the rooms lack a balcony, so make sure you take that into consideration when booking. Our... More

This hotel positions itself in the boutique segment and sets its pricing accordingly. But while the setting and decor is excellent the service falls short of achieving the necessary level. This is the conclusion that we reached within just a few hours of arriving. Firstly the desk clerk could hardly speak English (and told us so). Secondly the bar /... More

Stayed here three nights. What a location! It's located on the beach and I could only imagine how pleasant this would be in summer. Nicely decorated and good spacious rooms. Staff was helpful and friendly. Only big minus was the food. Hard to understand. Totally not in comparison to what you could and should expect. Real bummer

This hotel is ideally located, the view is breathtaking and definitely worth the stay for a romantic weekend or with friends. The restaurant is quite disappointing so best to head to Sanary or Six Fours les Plages for meals

A wonderful hotel building with excellent rooms and views - well situated for exploring the coast from Marseille eastwards along the Cote d'Azur. Be aware that, if not visiting in summer, the hotel restaurant is closed.

The hotel was very good, lovely situated at a nice bay with view in direction to Bandol. Only if you want to visit the city of Sanary-sur-Mer you need to take a car, because the distance is long for walking. We didn't take a meal there, but there is a good restaurant with many fish-dishes in walking-distance of 5 minutes.

The rooms are extremely good, the bathroom (like the rest of the hotel) is new and perfectly equipped, rare to find something like this. The beds vary between 140 and 160 cm width. Try to get a room with sea few; the pool few is nothing compared to the sea view. The location allows a very nice view to Bandol... More
