“A long way from St Tropez”
Reviewed March 23, 2009

Firstly, Cogolin is a 30/40 Euro cab ride, each way, from St Tropez. It will take you 20 minutes without traffic and over an hour in the busy Summer congestion.

The village of Cogolin is small and quiet with one or two bars.

I stayed at the hotel, which is clean, modern and comfortable because the internet rate for it's 'comfort' rooms represent extremely good value for money. Note: The shower in these rooms are handheld over the bath. The rooms have modern furnishings, plasma TV, modern bathrooms and are clean and comfortable. If you have a car, it's a perfect place to lay your head prior to exploring the next day. A large car park is adjacent to the hotel, albeit space is always at a premium,

If your happy with the location, have a car and you get a good rate I would certainly recommend the hotel; but do not expect to walk out at night in St Tropez..

We booked to stay at the Bliss for three nights as my sister lives in Cogolin, and was having her 40th birthday in St Tropez. The hotel was very clean and smart, but it was noisy. We could hear the people in the next room talking, and the cleaners woke us up early each morning outside the room. Sound proofing clearly not brilliant. However, the room (we booked a 'comfort' room) was fine for our purposes, ie somewhere to sleep and wash. The bathroom was lovely with a deep Villeroy and Boch bath, but the shower attachment was on the wall low down so you couldn't have a shower without having to hold the shower. It's quite difficult to wash your hair one handed! It wasn't a large room but comfy bed. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room but lots of cafes and fantastic patisseries on the doorstep. The iron was also broken so we had to take clothes to my sister's apartment to iron and walk back up the street with them!
The hotel definitely isn't in St tropez, and the traffic into town can be dreadful. There is a back route or go to Port Grimaud and get the ferry across to St Tropez. Chez Chrisfanny restaurant in Cogolin is gorgeous and we really like the bar that overlooks the boule court, which fills up with working class men from the village.
I probably wouldn't stay in Cogolin if my sister didn't live there but it's a nice contrast to the excesses of St Tropez, and SO much cheaper!

  • Liked — comfortable bed and location near my sister
  • Disliked — noise and lack of sound proofing

Positives:
The price was reasonable compared to hotels in nearby St. Tropez.
Restaurant below the hotel had good food
Small creperie across the street had good service

Negatives:
Unhelpful staff
EXTREMELY dark, dismal, tiny room.
Other than small mirror in the bathroom there were no other mirrors in the room.
No safe in the room.
We booked a room with that was suppose to overlook "the hills or town square"?!?!?! Yet the full length windows opened out onto a DARK ALLEY, therefore we left our windows and metal shutters locked!!!
Very thin walls. We could hear people speaking and showering next door.
Felt unsafe!!

We used the Tripadvisor map locator to decide which hotel we should stay in when in St Tropez for a few nights. The map indicator clearly shows the Bliss hotel to be very close to the Port. The most important thing for us was locatiion - we wanted to park up the car and relax for a few days. On arrival, we headed into the centre of the town and parked up. Using a street map we could not find the Bliss or the Square it was on. The tourist office helped out, indicating that the Bliss hotel was not in St Tropez at all, but in a small souless town called Cogolin. With no choice, we got back in the car and headed out. 1 hour and 15 mins later we arrived. On checking in I explained our disappointment at the location of the hotel and asked if we could cancel our second night, so that we could stay in St Tropez. We were told we would be charged the full rate if we cancelled.

To be fair the hotel has been very well refurbished and the website photos give an honest representation. However the hotel is located on the town's main road and it is very, very noisy.

The receptionist told us that it was only a 15 min trip into St Tropex (perhaps so in a helicopter!). The next morning the traffic was so bad, after 20 mins of moving nowhere, we gave up and headed in land to Gassin for some peace and quiet.

On the whole we salvaged the weekend by touring the peninsula by car. However, but this was not the relaxing break we had planned and we feel that we have been completey mislead about the location of this Hotel.
