Haven’t been here for a few years – and the weather, beaches, ambience are still excellent – but many other improvements.
Kon Tiki have cleared away most of the private accommodations so now it is all directly under their control with higher standards. They have professional WiFi (Euro 30 per week) that works 100%. Improved tennis courts and other sports facilities. Shops, laundry, café, restaurant are about the same.
For those that want, now have new supermarkets nearby – E.Leclerc in Cogolin, Intermarche in Grimaud, Carrefour in St Maxime – as well as the trusty Casino Geant by the fun fair on the road in. There is free transport to St Tropez market.
It's not perfect - standards could be even higher, but then it might become sterile whereas today it is very laid back and relaxing. If you don't speak French then Romanian is OK as many of the staff are from that country - and they can be proud as they work hard.
The newly built Tiki Family area naturally is full of children so older people may prefer the Tiki Garden area. Tiki Huttes have far more features than the Tiki Chalets (eg more space, better mattresses, television, air conditioning, dish washer, included linen and cleaning, and their own rubbish collection etc).
Where else can you live like this on the beach.
