“Beautiful Views and Lots of Privacy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

The grounds of the hotel are not to be missed. There are lots of hidden places that you can lounge and enjoy the view of the town of Cassis and the Mediterranean. We really enjoyed the access to the ocean....jump off a ledge and into the water. Very refreshing. I wouldn't rate the quality of the rooms as the best that I have ever stayed in; that being said, if i ever went back to Cassis I would def stay at Les Roches Blanches again.

This lovely Art Deco style hotel's position offers unrivalled views over Cassis. The terraced grounds maximise the space available, as does the elegant infinity pool but the stars of the show are the staff. Old time elegant service in the restaurant and the ladies in reception really couldn't be more helpful. All in all, a marvellous experience.

Room Tip: 285 Euro for a sea view worth every penny.

We stayed here in July 2013, while visiting family in Cassis. My aunt stayed here in the 70s, and the well kept facilities transport you back to those days. We enjoyed the time travel, especially as our room was modern and quiet, with well functioning airco so you are certainly not giving up on modern comfort. The garden is SPECTACULAR, with wonderful views on the Cap Canaille. The hotel is relatively small compared to the garden so guests can spread out (in sharp contrast to the rather crowded public beach down the road). You also have direct sea access but be warned that the water can be surprisingly fresh. The breakfast is 20 euro per person, which seemed a bit steep, but we never tried it. Staff is very courteous and helpful.

Arrived late so woke up from the most comfortable bed to a stunning view, went for a swim straight off the limestone rocks into the cool blue med before a wonderful breakfast. Felt totally relaxed after 2 nights in the hotel, staff are laid back and charming (spoke good English which helped us!)
Not only does the garden meander down to the sea but also it is half way between walking into the centre of Cassis or going over to the Calanques, tennis courts etc in the other direction.
Can't wait to return sometime and bring our teenage boys with us next time (need to save up first!)

I went to this hotel for the view and I was not disappointed. The view from here is spectacular. We took a large room that had a large balcony with seating. The room was well equipped but service was poor and our experience at their add on breakfast was terrible.

So the high price you pay is just for one thing - the view. We went to Cassis as part of our holiday in Provence for just 2 reasons -to see the Azure Mediterranean and the calanques. The Azure and the calanques did not disappoint but the hotel at this price was an average experience at best.

It's a pleasant 10minute walk to the main port area, so not sure why some people feel it's too far away.

Possibly the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. concierge service was helpful for dinner reservations but anything beyond that was rude and useless. It's sad as the location is magnificent and outdoor area is amazing. We had two rooms, one was obviously newly refurbished and the other was more like a dingy motel room.
Definitely NOT four stars or worth the money!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a newly refurbished sea facing room however they will probably not give it to you.

By far the nicest hotel in Cassis. A little outside the main tourist street (5-7 min walk) perched overlooking the sea. Elegant and phenomenal views. Good service.

I want to laugh at people complaining that there is no heated pool, why would you want one in the mediterannean? The pool and loungng area, boule court, and access to the sea (by jumping off the boulders) is the best. Pretty rooms, nice atmoshpere, great overall.

Room Tip: sea views or town and sea
