“Lovely spot ,shame about the bed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

We spent a relaxing week here at the end of July. We had a small two room terraced bungalow with a small garden on the edge of a pineforest which led down to a beach. There was a small pool and restaurent and cafe . We loved the area just back from the beach where they had very comfortable sun beds and unbrellas. The beach and sea were a bit weedy just outside the resort but if you walked along abit the sea was lovely and clear. The bungalow was very basic but it did have a dishwasher and microwave and effficent shower in the bathroom and generally it was fine except for a very uncomfortable small double bed which was a shame because it was such a lovely spot that if I could have got a decent nights sleep I would have loved to return.

Room Tip: The ground floor bungalows with garden are best if you self cater

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2010

We stayed in one of the Domaine de la mer bungalos, and have been quite disappointed. It is way way too expensive for what it is. Walls were not very clean, stained with insects in particular. Obviously, they are never washed. Better not to look into details for cleanness...the kitchen vent for ex. The so-called terrasse/garden was half the size of the one showned on the picture. So, if you still want to go, make sure you get what is on the picture. Not too say that the area is infested with aggressive mosquitoes which make eating out - any time of day - impossible!
Good points : they have a/c (although not very clean either), the Domaine is a 5 mn drive away from the port for Porquerolles

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2008

I have been to Giens in the past many times - so I knew what to expect. My wife and I stayed in the Domaine de la mer for three nights in August 2008. Giens in general is a beautiful island and not so touristic as other parts of the Cote d'azur. Hower, if you go there in July/August the beaches are crowded by french holidaymakers. Be prepared to get stuck in a traffic jam whereever you drive during that period - even on Giens.
The Domaine de la mer is situated in a beatiful vast area with pine trees and direct access to the sea. It mainly consists of appartements and bungalows for self catering - the french love that... We stayed in one of the few nice hotel rooms which are meticiously clean and in a good standard. The "design hotel look" is "Ikea"-like design but that's still much bettern than shabby furniture. Altogether very pleasant rooms.
The pool is fairly small and crowded by hordes of children and their parents for the whole day. But who needs a pool when the sea is there?
Restaurant: breakfast not included in the room rate, buffet with good choice. Dinner: fairly small menu, we liked the food - but it's overpriced. We did it once as the view from the restaurant's terrace over the bay at sunset is amazing. Better drive to Port d'Hyere - there are numerous restaurant for all different moneybags.
In general, I would always go back - being aware that in Southern France they "take it easy" - which is nice but also meaning that in many cases everything is a bit neglected, and locals / staff hardly speak any foreign language. So better train your french language skills... ;-)

We stayed at "Le Domaine de la Mer" for the second time in a row because we were enchanted by its location (directly on the beach in a beautiful Mediterranean stone pine park) and its style. It is a very small hotel (the property also rents appartments) completely furnitured in IKEA... We wanted to find a decent hotel directly on the beach (since this area is very famous for wind surfing) and there it was... Prerequisite is, of course, to speak French.... Which for some is not a difficulty...

Back to the hotel - small cute clean rooms with silent air-conditioning (rare to find!!), restaurant with a sea view, good french style food (breakfast/lunch/dinner is offered additional to the room charge). Everything is still very authentic and not touristically spoiled. We loved it! Pine trees, cicadas, sea... We walked (30') several times to the village Giens (also the name of the whole peninsula where the hotel is located) for dinner. Couple of relatively cheep restaurants with delicious sea-food...Go and try it yourself!

Stayed July 2007
