This was our 5th stay at La Messardiere and again: Everything was absolutely top notch and what is to be expected of a 5*(plus) hotel.
Our room, a Gulf Suite in the annexe, was superb. Wonderful beds, two flatscreen TV's, a nice terrace with loungers, a table and chairs, a big bathroom with double sinks, jacuzzi bath and large separate shower. Top of the bill amenities; big fluffy towels (changed twice daily of course), bathrobes and slippers.
Service is outstanding: From the very knowledgable concierges, who are able to make reservations in restaurants which are fully booked, to the staff at the reception desk, always with a smile on their face and adressing the guests by their name, to the restaurant staff who understand what Service (with a capital S) means.
Housekeeping is of a very high standard.
Twice we had dinner in the restaurant and both times the food was excellent. The Menu du Marché changes daily and offers very good quality for money.Of course, weather permitting, there is al fresco dining on the terrace with undisturbed views over the Bay of Pampelonne
The (young) sommelier made some very good and surprising wine suggestions: Hat off, also because of the fact that he did not suggest (as is often the case) the more expensive wines on the list.
-Continental- buffet breakfast (included in the roomprice) is excellent with an abundance of fresh fruits and fruitsalad.
There is a very nice pool with lunch-restaurant and bar and poolstaff as well as the waiters in the bar are again excellent!
The hotel with beautiful extensive grounds, is located outside St. Tropez on a hill with magnificent views over the Bay of Pampelonne.
There is a 24/7 shuttle available and the navette takes you right to the centre of town and picks you up at the same location. Never did we have to wait for more than 10 minutes for transportation, which is free of charge.
Free WiFi throughout the hotel of course and two computers with printers are available for the guests in the main lobby.
Of course, this is St. Tropez and prices are high. But La Messardiere is certainly value for money; excellent and friendly staff, who are committed to making you feel welcome and at home; excellent accomodations and an exceptional restaurant.
The only very small point of attention is the choice of music which can be heard all day and night throughout the main building, be it in the lobby, the restaurant or even in the lavatories: A bit Moroccon/Arabian, out of place in our opinion. No criticism, but a point of attention!
Should you look for a superb hotel in a beautiful location with topnotch service, I strongly recommend La Messardiere.
We will certainly be back!
