There were five people in our party (two adults and three teenagers) and we stayed in two rooms: a family suite and a deluxe double. From the moment we arrived we were... More

We stayed here one night with our dogs. It's a hotel that we really can recommend. The room was good and the service was excellent. Breakfast was served in the "tea salon" witch was decorated in a very high standard. Not overdone, but with a very good taste!!!! After only one year in business we wish even more success to...

The hotel is a v short walk to the beach, restaurants and town centre. The hotel has an excellent wine menu and it is worth seeking advice on local vinyards. we would certainly stay again - and hopefully have better weather.

We needed to spend the night in San Palais sur Mer and were ver pleased with the Art's. The welcome at reception was second to none and the location is great for the beaches and the restaurants. The lift is an experience! Reminded us of one in Prague, but it worked fine.

This hotel is in a brilliant location in the town centre and less than 50 metres from a lovely beach. It was clean and very comfortable and offers good value. The lovely breakfast room doubles as a wine/tapas bar in season. Totally recommended.

Stayed one night with friends on a cycling trip. The owner was extremely helpful (he speaks excellent English) re restaurants and where to visit etc. Rooms are small but comfortable with nice modern décor. Only criticism the breakfast was a bit expensive at €20 each.

We have stayed here on and off for over a decade either as a family or as a couple, for a few nights en route south or heading back up home, in order to sample the delights of this wonderful gem of a beach and bijou eateries surrounded by its glorious fin de siecle architecture.
