Super Service in an ideal part of St Tropez if you are happy to be a stones throw away from the hussle and bustle. It has its own private beach which is ideal. If I have Ny issue, it's paying €11 for a coke or €10 for an espresso. Sure you expect to pay a premium at a luxury hotel but this is too big a premium. Aside from that, couldn't have been happier anywhere else in St Tropez.

The location can't be beat. There is a small private beach and it's a short 10 minute walk to town. There is also a shuttle that runs until midnight if you aren't in the mood to walk. The service is excellent. Everyone is extremely friendly, nice and professional. However, the rooms are average. Our standard room had the toilet in one corner of our bedroom and the sink/tub in the opposite corner. I haven't ever encountered this and thought it was bizarre. Other than that, the room was spacious and clean. We appreciated that Internet was included, but other than that, the prices for food are outrageous (especially room service). I guess it's because the restaurant is a three Michelin starred establishment, but it would be nice to have other options.

My wife and I drove from Theoule to have lunch at the restaurant of this hotel. We had seen good reviews, but were really overwhelmed by the kind of service and food we were served. The food was just superb, beautifully served from a good menu offerering the very best that France has to offer. First class ingrediences. I do agree with other visitors that what really stands out are the OUTSTANDING staff, who do their jobs with panache and a genuine desire to please. Ok, it is expensive, but it is worth every eurocent! Congratulations on Your Third Michelin star, it is well deserved! We will be back, and stay in the hotel to have more time to enjoy this!

We had such a wonderful stay we can't stop talking about it. The property is lovely and very well maintained. It's immaculate. The staff is beyond excellent. They were not only professional and efficient, they were warm and kind and made us feel special. We were impressed with the entire experience. The location has to be the best in St. Tropez. It's right on a private beach and a very short walk to shops and restaurants and Old St.Tropez. They also have a shuttle that will take you into town. We used the shuttle and the driver was very helpful by telling us a bit about the town and offered to pick us up anytime. Our room was very nice and had a great view of the beach. It was comfortable and included nice amenities. Both restaurants were excellent (reviewed separately). We're already planning another trip.

The best "hotel" I be ever been. I be felt like home. The staff is highly trainee and everyone can makes you feel like Royalty. I hope I can go there again to enjoy this special and perfect place in the world .
Classy, luxury, shinny, with everything you can need or just the calm by the sea: a hard thing to get nowadays....... And of course it's ok it's expensive so they can keep the target of their guest!
Do start to save and please go here or just have a tea by the fantastic swimming pool in front of the sea in Saint Tropez: The unique place in France

This really is a lovely hotel with very friendly staff. The prices are sky high but we were aware of that before we went. What was, however, unforgivable was to be made to feel cheap when we had dinner at the restaurant, particularly when we were spending the best part of €5,000 to stay there. Regretably, when we booked we chose an option which included a dinner for two. What we did not know was that this meant we were restricted to the set menu which consisted of four fish courses. Much as we like fish we did want a meat course. When we asked for this the waiter had to go away and check if this would be "ok". While he did come back with a couple of very limited options we really did feel like we were those people who had arrived with the disount tokens and you are being accomodated rather than welcomed. A small thing in many ways but it is these things that can make the difference when you are spending hard earned money.

Many thanks for taking the time to share your impression about your recent stay at La Résidence de La Pinède. I am very sorry that your experience at La Vague d'Or was not up to your expectations. Indeed, our packages include a set diner menu, which is orientated on sea food. Our Restaurant Manager is always very attentive to our clients preferences and I regret that the alternative offered was not sufficient. Your satisfaction is our prime concern and be assured that they did not mean to make you feel that way. Also some corrective action will be taken to avoid reoccurence. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly should you consider returning and I will ensure you are spending a memorable time with us. Olivier Raveyre. Manager
