This hotel is perfectly located on the beach of Sanary-sur-Mer. I was lucky to get a room in this luxury hotel through an Internet booking website for less than half of the listed price. My room was clean, well appointed and overlooking the beach. Breakfast is served "buffet style" with all possible amenities but I had to go look for... More

This is a unique hotel set in a beautiful location close to the resort of Sanary and Bandol. I read the recent reviews before we left, mainly complaining that the staff did not speak English. This is hotel set away from the tourist area which we believe was a massive draw for us. During our stay the hotel staff could... More

This was our second time at La Farandole and we were looking forward to a lovely meal on the roof terrace. Unfortunately, having booked the table at 9pm, we were still sitting at our table without a drink or a menu at 9.45pm in a largely quiet restaurant. I had to go and request service twice during the evening and... More

Location and appearance are very nice. The rooms are clean and in good shape. It is on a small beach and the view is beautiful. However, the service does not match their price level. We arrived at 2 pm so their restaurant was closed for lunch. Instructions for finding a meal were confusing and I had to ask for a... More

We have been to Cannes, Nice, Monaco and eastern part of the French Riviera, many times. But this was our first time west of Toulon. What a great discovery it was!!! Of all the times we've been on the French Riviera, we never swam on any of its beaches, for most have "gallets" (rocks), water is dark navy blue due... More

The location of this hotel is fab, situated directly on the sandy beach. The staff were friendly although language skills did not extend to English, I believe mainly French and Russian from what I could experience. It was spotlessly clean which is very important to me. They have a lovely private sundeck and outdoor pool. Everything is very well kept.... More

We visited this hotel at the end of a tour of the south of France. We had originally booked for four nights but at the last moment decided to reduce our stay to two nights - and we were so glad that we did. Although the building and rooms are attractive the service at the hotel was unprofessional - within... More

We made a point of not reading any of the reviews before deciding to stay here for 4 nights on an 8-day holiday on the French Riviera. However, now that I have, the majority of criticism seemed to be about the level of service, attention to detail etc and it was interesting to read management responses to those. Sadly, despite...

The Farandole is brilliantly situated on the Bay of Bandol and sits right in front of the beach, which means that rooms with a sea aspect have a quite fantastic view. We had such a view, although no balcony - in fact, many of the rooms lack a balcony, so make sure you take that into consideration when booking. Our... More

This hotel positions itself in the boutique segment and sets its pricing accordingly. But while the setting and decor is excellent the service falls short of achieving the necessary level. This is the conclusion that we reached within just a few hours of arriving. Firstly the desk clerk could hardly speak English (and told us so). Secondly the bar /... More
