I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend for 3 nights. It is in a great location if you want to be in central Lavandou. The reception was helpful and accomodating.
We had chosen this hotel for the location as well as for the price, it was one of the cheapest in this area without sacrificing too much comfort. There is also free parking which is great!
The room was an ok size, a little tight with 2 suitcases on the floor but not a big deal. The bathroom was a bit of a problem as there is no shower curtain and water gets everywhere!The bed was comfortable and even with the windows open, it was very quiet.
We didn't try the breakfast but it looked like it was just bread and croissants.
The main beach is about a 5 -10 minute walk away but we found St-Clair beach to be much, much nicer. This beach was maybe a 15 minute walk across all the rocky shores, very scenic but you can also walk along the main bike path which connects with the main road.
We also tried La Fossette beach which is a good 30 minute walk away. Its a beautiful little beach, full of families with young children. The water was crystal clear and clean.
I would most probably stay at this hotel again since it is centrally located, close to all the restaurants, shops, etc as opposed to the other hotels located closer to St-Claire and east of this point.
