French friends recommended this place which at first appears to be up the hill and away from the action, It is actually in a quiet location, but a five minute walk to the port, quite convenient unless you have walking challenges or multiple uncooperative children.
The welcome is warm. We did not pre-reserve when we cam in June 2012 so even weeknights suggest calling first, they speak English. We did get a quiet and private room facing away from the bay (and the street) with a large patio and even an extra small children's room with bunk beds,. As we were just two, we used this for luggage.
The breakfast (10Euro extra per day) is worth the cost in that it is pretty generous in a European sort of way and will save you time walking into town to search for your meal. They have a great machine for rapidly making variety of fancy coffees.
I especially enjoyed the pool during the hot humid days we stayed here. The beaches are a bit crowded and the water a bit cool (but wonderfully clean) due to local sub maritime fresh water springs. The pool was clean and just the right temperature. with a waterfall to keep out the sound of conversations and other ambient noise around you. My wife and I spend one of the oct relaxed afternoons of our Cassis vacation just sitting around the pool reading and dipping in to cool off from time to time.
They have three gym machines, free WiFi throughout the building and a computer for your use if you did not bring your own. Parking is easy and protected, a big plus in this crowded town.
