“Amazing Experience wish we stayed longer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This was our first time experience in a 6 star upmarket hotel and it was amazing. The staff could not do enough for us. We had a beautiful large room with a terrace with a view to the beach and the pool. Bathroom was large and the room very clean. We actually dined in and used the terrace a couple of times it was so comfortable and had a beautiful view.
The hotel had valet parking and a private beach and it was perfectly located near the main town, only 10 mins walk.
Wifi was slow and average in quality. Breakfast should have had more of a selection considering it was 6 star hotel.

Well worth every cent, and we are definitely coming again.

We went as a family of 10. My husband and I have a 4 month old baby. The staff could not have been more helpful. The resturante served the best food we have ever had. My husband and the children loved the water sports. The pool is kept at a good temperature so was perfect for the baby. The rooms were a little small for the money but were lovely. Only downside it's that it was very expensive. We are going again next year. Can not wait!

We own several restaurants and only dine at the best so when I learned that this restaurant had recently garnered its 2nd Michelin star we decided to make a reservation. We were not disappointed. Chef Arnaud is a genius and his creativity combined with powerful flavors is unique with this type of dining. So often the cuisine looks beautiful but lacks taste. His cuisine nails it from top to bottm. Plus, the setting of the outdoor dining room on the water is stunning. Very romantic and perfect for this menu. We have dined with Jean Georges, Ducasse, Boulud, Keller....a lot of great chefs. Arnaud will be among the greats before he is finished.

Spent a fantastic week here with my husband, I would like to highly recommend the experience. The hotel is absolutely lovely. We enjoyed several chilled bottles of bubbly relaxing on their balcony eating delicious local cuisine overlooking a fabulous view of the Med. The staff were superb, not only freindly but extremely helpful. We ate in their restaurant and found the food to be absolutley delicious. We enjoyed our stay and have returned completely chilled and refreshed. We would highly recommend. Thank you for a fantastic break, we will definitely be coming back for more.

My boyfriend and I had a lovely time in this beautiful and remote hotel. We spend 3 nights in a beautiful room with an ocean view that had lovely terrace where one can enjoy breakfast or just have a cocktail. I loved that they have their own private beach and a heated pool, and unlike Cane beach affiliated with the hotel you don’t have to pay anything extra. We had an amazing and quick service on the beach, the only minus for some of you that love swimming-The waters are not deep. You can walk forever and still be up to your chest. But I personally don’t mind that at all. They have an amazing lunches, and I would moussed definitely recommend to stay in one day and enjoy their kitchen. The hotel located within 15-20 minutes’ walk to the Marina, but they have a wonderful driver-shuttle who drops you off and picks you up. Nothing is cheap in South of France, but this hotel definitely worth a splurge!

Room Tip: Dont take anything but ocean view, otherwise, you will be looking at the parking lot

This is definitely not a cheap stay. If you have a limited budget, I would not recommend this hotel.
That said, I strongly believe La Pinede to be one of the very best (if not the best) hotel in town. Nothing is average or even close to that.
The service is very professional and helpful, and yet warm. The food is absolutely amazing! Breakfast is delicious and both dinners we had were to die for. The room is equiped and clean (booking a sea view room is mandatory). The pool is great and very pleasant. The beach is small and not as nice as Pampelonne, but is a private one, and is nice to be in a quiet beach sometimes.
The hotel is close to the villa, and there is a van available. We did not use it, but I believe it may be helpful for those that are not willing to drive (parking is expensive).
Definitely recommended for a splurge in St. Tropez!

Room Tip: Must book a room with sea view!!

This is a wonderful hotel in every respect ! If you are on any type of budget go somewhere else as it' s very expensive but worth it - you learn in life the 'best' costs. The staff are brilliant and very professional without a hint of French stuffiness that can sometimes accompany their better establishments. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and well furnished but the rooms are not large. Given it's position itbis worth the extra for a sea facing room - all with good balconies. The beach is well managed and there are plenty of comfortable sun loungers. My only slight criticism is the cumbersome menu at dinner. I fully appreciate this is a 2 star Michelin restaurant but that does not mean you have to over complicate the menu. We had a room on the first floor and over 5 nights it was quite noticeable many guests were struggling with their choice. In the end we went for the 4 course recommended menu - there are basically two options and bothh are ALL fish. Did I enjoy it - yes. Was I expecting better from a 2 star - yes! The other slight disadvantage of the menu is it is not one that you would want to have over a few nights - it's simply too rich. It's a great pity some of the room service options are not available in the restaurant as they were excellent!
