“Our third visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

We have friends nearby, easy walking distance from this hotel. Once we arrive and park our car - we don't use it again until we leave. The rooms are simple, but comfortable. We feel very well looked after - and there is free WIFI! To sit in the evening and have a drink under the shade of the plain trees is lovely.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2010

The website promises the cry of seagulls and a hop away from the beach. Before World War Two the hotel was indeed amongst the dunes but now an urban sprawl of restaurants and shops surround the hotel and it looks onto a road. No seagulls can be heard.

The local beach is very busy in August and dirty with too many boats. However, if you want to use the hotel as a springboard for exploring the area it is fine. We drove 10 minutes to some lovely, private beaches (8€ parking fee) and the hilltop village of Bormes les Mimosas is also a 10 minute drive. They have lovely restaurants there with great food and the village is a stunning picture postcard.

Our room at the hotel was very clean with a balcony that looked onto the back of the kitchen. But the noise from whole hotel's air conditioning machine was unbearable. Most people do not come to the south of France to lock themselves up in a room but we had to keep our doors closed as the noise was just awful.

When we are all suffering from the effects of global warming it would be a smart idea to offer clients fans. Not everybody likes air conditioning! Especially when it is totally unnecessary (as it was here where there is a lovely breeze most of the time). But they chose to waste money with air-con. There are no fans.

We complained about the 24/7 noise and were moved (finally) to their private apartment across the road. We paid a supplement but it was worth it although, at first, they had locked the kitchen (when we had been promised a fridge). After I complained again, the kitchen was unlocked. From then on we had a great time. However the hotel owner (the bearded man) was angry and surly with us as if we had done something terribly wrong.

Also, in August, when people stay at the beach until late, you'd think they'd serve dinner until late. Their last orders are at 8.30pm! We thought that absurd and obviously did not make it in time for last orders so we only had dinner there once. We didn't have breakfast as it didn't look anything special and not worth the extra 9€ per head.

An okay place if you have a room at the front but next time I'd stay in the hilltop village of Bormes as you have to drive to the good beaches anyway.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2009

We have just returned from a four night stay in Hotel de la Plage, a hotel located in Bormes de Mimosas (la Faviere, between Hyeres and St.Tropez) which we found by surprise by browsing through the French yellow pages. After having stayed there for 1 night we decided to stay at the hotel for the rest of our holidays. This charming hotel just opened and is run by a friendly (relatively) young couple. The hotel is well located, 1 minute walk to the centre town and 3 minutes walk from the beaches. The hotel has a nice terrace where you can have a peaceful afternoon drink and where breakfast and diner is served. Overall a very relaxed hotel which provides good quality for a reasonable price, we highly recommend it!
