“Convenient and clean hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2009

This hotel was the perfect match for our family ! Service minded staff, close to the beach, and a clean and not overcrowded swimming-pool. No resturant in the hotel, but a numbers of different resturants in walking distance from the hotel. We missed information in english, due to limited knowlwdge to the frence language....

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2009

We just returned from a trip on the French Rivieria. We stayed for 5 nights at the Pierre & Vacances in Saint-Laurent du Var, in a 4/5 3-room appartment.

We were expecting a rather small apartment, and were pleasantly surprised by its size. It was very clean, and we guess recently refurbished. The kitchen area had everything we wanted, with the exception of an oven (there is a microwave oven that also has a broil feature however).

We were travelling with two young children, ages 2 & 4, so we wanted somewhere where we could cook our own meals (especially breakfast and dinner) and get the children to relax without the stress of the restaurant. There is a very small grocery store just on the next street, for very basic stuff. Other stores are less than a 10 minute walk. If you have a car, there are full-size grocery stores within a 10-15 minute drive.

The pool was okay, well maintained, with a smaller one for younger children. We had no complaints about them.

Close by you have the port and beach. We did not go to that beach as it was "galets" and enjoyed beaches in Agay, Cannes, Sainte-Marguerite and Villefranche-sur-Mer instead. The port is very nice to visit in the evening, with plenty of restaurants lining the street, I believe every genre is represented. We had sushi take-out, which was very good, especially the tuna sashimi, and another evening at a pizzeria. Of course the children would not let us leave without having some gellato from another joint.

The garage is undeground, covered, with some rather tight places.

It's definitely a place we would return to, and recommend, especially for a family vacation. If you want a bar, restaurants, and a nightlife, then look for accomodations in Nice or Cannes directly.

We were two families with each our apartment that stayed for 2 weeks booked through --- The apartments were nice (medium 4 star style), but to our great dismay - there were no longer a bar nor a restaurant. According to the reception these were closed last year, but according to the web pages they are still supposed to have both a bar and a restaurant. There are also no activities there whatsoever except the swimming pool and a tennis court. Well - the area around is great but may be you should look for an apartment somewhere else... :-)
