“high cost and low performance”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Hotel is very well located but that is the only positive impression. Rooms are small, bathroom with poor ventilation, balcony door handle almost broken, you can see that some major renovation was due some time ago. If the hotel is full (and that was a case) you need a lot of time and patience for waiting on an elevator (only 2 for 9 story facility). For the breakfast price of 15,00 € you shall get more choice as it was the case.

Great location, rooms great as well. Avoid August September Is great and less expensive. Will book again. The view over the marina is very worth while and is close to the beach and restaurants. The pool is small but you have got miles of beach to make up for that.

My partner booked this hotel and I hadn't even checked it out on line, however he did me proud. This hotel is on the front overlooking the lovely port and restaurants. The large balcony was a sun trap and a great place to watch the activity below. The room was large and more than adequate for our overnight stay. We parked in the hotel car park right outside the doors. The reception staff are very friendly and speak English if you need them too. We spent an hour by the sheltered pool which was also a sun trap . Would recommend this hotel.

This is probably the best Mercure in France. In any case it's the best I've found. It's right in the port and every room has a balcony with a view of the Med. The rooms are large, well appointed and have king size beds. Be sure to ask for a high floor (8 or9). It can be a little pricey and hard to book in June, July and August, but its worth the hassle and the cash for the view. The staff is well trained and helpful. Book early as there are an endless stream of business meetings passing through.

We stayed for 1 night and got the biggest room as we have a 3 and a 1 year old. The room was extermely spacious and the view over the marina was great (it is a busy marina with restaurants bars etc but the door seals off the noise). The room is a bit dated in terms of style but perfectly clean and functional. The balcony wasn't quite safe enough to leave a 3 year old on his own but ok if you accompany them.

The interior of the hotel is also dated and a bit dark but again reasonably clean. If you are staying here for the beach or the nightlife and not planning to spend lots of time in the hotel it will be fine.

We didn't go in the pool but it seemed a bit small and not really used. I guess because the beach is so close by.We did not eat at the hotel either.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

The real benefits of this hotel are the view (fantastic if you want to sit on the balcony have a drink as it gets dark and watch the actiivity below). Secondly it's right on the marina and beach front. The Marina has lots of restaurants and bars so after a pre-dinner drink and then dinner at another restautant we took the kids for a walk along the seafront. Perfect end to our holiday.

I think some other reviews have mentioned you are not likely to find a better quality hotel in this area. I agree with them, the bar is set lower than other areas of Europe I have been to in this regard. But I would still recommend people to stay here if they were planning a beach holiday in the South of France.

We only had dinners in this hotel on a week days for 8 days. Once a week dinner is fixed 3x courses menu, otherwise it is a buffet. All tables are outside with a stunning view on a harbor (boats)
For a small prise per person:1) you would not have a big choice in a buffet, but there are more green salads and vegetables, then in any other restaurant; 2) bottle of water; 3) local produced wine. Young childeren are eating for free.
At dinner you also have very good view of the fireworks.
