“We Loved it.”
Reviewed May 9, 2011

Stayed here for two nights in early Oct 2010. It was a very pleasant surprise and a great way to end our vacation. The view is magnificent - rocky cliffs, beaches, fishing boats, blue water, sunrise sparkling over the sea. We had a third floor room in the middle with a balcony. The room was not large but we loved the sound, feel and smell of the sea breezes and sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine.
The staff were friendly. The breakfast content was typical/continental but it was nice to enjoy it on the canopied deck out front of the hotel.
The view of the cliffs across the way is very nice (bring binoculars), but for a real thrill drive to the top of the cliffs and stand a few feet from the edge of the cliff (no railings) and the view of Cassis below and the expanse of the sea if truly breathtaking.

Before you get in your room everythings seems to be perfect: A stylish website, nice pictures, perfect location next to the bay of Cassis, good prices, nice terrasse with an amazing view of the Côte d'Azur…what can you expect more?
Unfortunatly when you get into your room, real life welcomes you.
It is not really what you expected: The bathroom smells strange, not renovated, old style, on the bacony the long chair was broken and we could't use, the rest of the funitures looked a-like. The bed was very small for two, the fridge was old and ugly.
The waitress in the restaurant in the morning were more busy with talking to each other than taking care of their guest: We waited to the bread and on the next table the piguins came to eat the rest of the bread of other guests.

All in all: We got an older room without discount and the hotel sells itself better than it is and for that, it is too expensive.
We also informed the friendly lady at the reception about that and she really gave the impression that she will take care of it which is a plus. Hopefully she will do so otherwise it's not a big joy to return.

We were the in September and got an parking spot (payed) on the parking place very easily but in the high season you should come very early or late. The city with the harbor can be reached within 5 minutues which is very conveniend.

I can't understand how this hotel is so far down the ranks for cassis. It's location is incredible and it is a very good hotel too. We had a small room but the view was to die for we could lie on the bed and watch the sun rise above the sea and towering cliffs. Service was excellent staff very helpful. Hotel is nicely done up. Breakfast is adequate - it's nice to find a hotel in France where breakfast is included. Overall can't recommend this enough.

The Hotel is perfectly located, just across the street from the Beach! The Hotel is renovated, rooms are nice and the brunch was very good. The view is very nice as well.

On the minus side, the price is too expensive for what it is (it seems to be common in Cassis vs. the rest of Provence) , they only have 10 parking spots for 2 hotels and no valet (you need to put your car in the nearby municipal parking, come back to pay and carry your own luggage). There was loud music until 2 am in the restaurant next to us and we felt the staff wasn't very helpful in giving us tips on the Calanques and Restaurants in Cassis.

We still enjoyed it for Cassis.

The location of this hotel simply couldn't be better. You are right across the road from the beach - a pebble beach, bring water shoes - and the sea views are magnificent. A good continental breakfast is included and they will even bring it to your room so you can eat on the balcony. My biggest complaint about the hotel was that the room got stuffy. We were warned that the room type we wanted (double room with sea view and shower) didn't have AC, but assumed that wouldn't be an issue since the temp wasn't supposed to be highs in the 70's. I would recommend maybe getting a room with AC, but I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We had seen mixed reviews and only booked this hotel for one night out of the three that we stayed in Cassis. I would have stayed all three nights if possible. Yes, there is a 2 lane road between the hotel and beach - but we heard the surf quite clearly - and the cars were less frequent at night. We were overwhelmed by the view from our terrace, #14. The restaurant next door was closed and my sisters heart condition prevented the inclined walk to town on our first night. The desk manager arranged to have Tex Mex delivered to us by motorbike - with a few Heinekins from the bar - we had one of the best meals - and views you could ask for. (I'm from Texas - this Tex Mex had a definite Provence flair and was delicious.) In addition, he arranged for plates, cuttlery and napkins - beyond service. The next morning, after a night sleeping t the sounds of the surf, breakfast was delivered to our room. The price is up there - but we were not disappointed.

We stayed two nights during some of the most ideal weather we encountered. The location just across from the beach was terrific as was the easy walk into town. The room was tiny -- but did have fridge available -- which was nice as you could enjoy some cool rose while on your balcony overlooking the water. On the minus side, having your windows open to hear the waves at night meant you also got to hear the noise for breakfast preparations the next morning as well as any partying that was happening nearby. Ideally, you could turn on the a/c and drown out any noise but that's not our preference. Good for a short stay.
