Good place. Clean, friendly staff. Nice room with a balcony. They didn't seem to enforce the quiet pool rules since it was full of kids and toys but we planned on hitting the beach anyway. Breakfast was too expensive and the hotel was expensive but its the Riviera so what can one expect!! I would stay again.

Dear traveller1857,
We thank you for your comment about our hotel.
You're true, our large swimming-pool is a little paradise for the children and their parents, and fortunately, we are particularly close to Pampelonne Beach, that is a good alternative for those who prefer breathe sea air.
We would be very happy to see you again in our hotel!

One of my favorite hotel. Friendly and kind staff. Fast check in/out. The rooms are classic. The price is ok comparing to the location and facilities.
We were looking for a spa in Saint Tropez but since we were late (one night before arriving), we could not find one. So, we started to look for a hotel that is near to the beach or in the down town. When we found this hotel, we chose it because it located in between. Around 1km to the Tahiti beach and St. Tropez down town. In the morning, we go to the beach until 2 or 4pm. Then, we change in the hotel. After that, we go to down town for dinner, lunch, parties, bars and shopping. Saint tropez is one of my favorite city.

Stayed: June 2014

Nice hotel in good location approximately 1km from Tahiti beach, good clean rooms, nice pool. Decent value for St.Tropez which is hard to come by as everything in the area is very expensive. Two excellent restaurants nearby (Le Palm de Pin and L' Acacia)

Room Tip: the upgrade to a poolside room was nice.

I stayed at La Garbine for 4 days towards the end of July this summer.
The location of this hotel could not have been better. 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle of St Tropez and 5 minutes from the most exclusive beach clubs St Tropez has to offer.
To avoid the heavy traffic of St Tropez, rent a scooter the hotel offers to get around town, or a quick ride to the beach clubs (if you don't mind messing up your hair)

The rooms are dated, but clean (except for the ants in my room)
The pool and yard are very much in the spirit of St Tropez. Crystal clear blue swimming pool, tall beautiful vegetation and very comfortable lounging chairs. The vibe is very calm and tranquil.

The front desk and managers are very helpful and attentive.
All in all, good hotel. I would def come back (minus the ants)

Hotel La Garbine derserves the rating it has on trip advisor. Very good location, in close proximity of St Tropez. The hotel itself, very clean, beautiful garden and swimming pool and very friendly staff. Suited for families. Preferred staying in Ramatuelle instead of the very busy St Topez. Important however to have a rental car to reach the better beaches of St Tropez (like Pampelonne) and also the centre of St Tropez..

The only suggestion we really have is that the hotel can improve the quality of its breakfast which is normally included in the prize, and can consider having bicycles or scooters available or perhaps a shuttle service to St Tropez (very getting parking is nearly impossible).

Will not hesitate to recommend this hotel to other people.

Room Tip: We had a very small room without a balcony, next time I would choose a room with a balcony. As for o...

We have spent 3 nights this year and some nights a couple of years ago! It is definitely a place to stay close to the beaches of St.Tropez! The rooms are nice and the bathrooms charming! The personnel is friendly and polite; the hotel has a beautiful courtyard with swimming pool.
There are 2 tennis courts available, but they need renovation work to be done!
We definitely recommend this place to people who want to spend nice time in St.Tropez!

Been there for the past 20 years, 1x or 2x per year. It is now the 2nd generation and when the owners recognize your face or name, the welcome is of course better. I do understand that people can be disappointed, as it is a familly hotel which requires sticking to the spirit. Anyway, the place is extremely charming, cosy, quiet and close to everything, assuming you know the small streets to go to Ramatuelle or St-Tropez. Breakfast makes you feel at home, which is never the case in a 5*. Beach is walking distance, St-Tropez is probably 20 min walk (allways went by car). Then you have 2 profiles of peolpe going to St-Tropez: those mid July-August and the others. I belong to the 2nd group, hence with different expectation. No restaurant but plenty of place around.

They built a new aisle a couple of years ago and renovated part (all?) of the rooms in the old aisle. Make sure you get a renovated one. Rooms are simple, clean, all with AC, with either terrace (up) or garden (ground floor). Terraces are pretty private.

Room Tip: Quiet and close to everything - superbe garden
