“What a lovely welcome”
Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

We called to see if there was a room sutable for our daughter and son-in law and our lovely grandsons. We met Carrin at reception and she showed us what she thought was sutable as she explaind she had young children and the room she recommended was lovely and very sutable for a young family it's a lovely hotel that I'd recommend as I have stayed in before but I did not know that this room existed thank you Carrin and your other receptionist (sorry i did not get your name ) thank you again for all your help .

We have stayed four times during the last 3 years in the Spinnaker – usually 3-4 days. We always had lunch in the Garden Grill by the pool and dinner in the restaurant (3 Michelin toques). The place is very relaxing with extremely short ways and a nice atmosphere with beaches less than 2km away. Great for travelling with kids as there is a small pool where many rooms have direct access to. The normal rooms are small but you can always go for the bigger suites or have two rooms with a connecting door. Stylish interior and lots of maintenance over last year upgrade the room which are still with a sliding door in the bathroom only which is a bit of a drawback. Be careful which room to book – some are overlooking the pool, others the Marina – with kids the ones on the pool side are more convenient. You can have breakfast on your own terrace which is quite nice – it never took more than few minutes to arrive. The garden grill is open from Mid June to September offering a wide menu and daily specials including a nice lobster. Small but good wine-list from the region and delicious ice cream. The restaurant has a small menu only – reasonably priced but only few main dishes who are the same throughout the season. Quality is good and the style is innovative – mix of French cuisine with some Spanish influence. Wine list shrank over last year as they do not have a sommelier anymore. Still good selection from the region at reasonable prices. Nice staff, very attentive and friendly. Will definitely come back next year.

We have stayed and had evening meals at the Le Spinaker several times over the years and it is still the best around this area and the welcome and Servis is excellent it's also nice to see that the staff have been here for a long time it's nice to be greeted by a friendly face that you know from last time keep up the good work.

Already having been suprised by the beauty of the surrounding port, the hotel itself was extremely charming. From the reception to our room, the decor was modern and chic. We stayed in two different rooms during our month long vacation, each with their own personal touch of the region. The atmosphere of the Spa was relaxing and calm which only contributed to the overall enjoyment of our massages and time spent in the jacuzzi.

The staff was very friendly, accommadating, and always ready to help. The food was well prepared and we were truly shocked by the variety and orginality of the dishes!

We will not be staying anywhere else next summer!!!!

Stayed at the Spinaker for 3 nights with my wife and daughter.The hotel has a michelin rated restaurant on its premises.The show is run by two brothers and their respective wives.From what I gather one brother is a top chef and runs the restaurant and the hotel is run by the other brother.
I would qualify this hotel as boutique.The rooms are all decorated on a different theme.They are not big but all have small gardens which in summer is great.The rooms are air -conditionned but again very simple.Its time to get a little renovation going since the bathrooms are getting tired.
In summer they open a grill in the garden next to the pool were
you can have a small lunch under the trees.A true delight.Everything was not perfect.Our reserved room had a hygiene issue which was quickly and efficiently sorted out by the staff,One of the breakfast jams had already been opened and consumed by a previous guest.Again well taken care of.
There is one thing that bothered me immensely.We took dinner at the top rated restaurent.We spent 200 euros and the chef did not bother saying hello nor goodbye.He spent his whole evening
entertaining his buddies and regular guests.Maybe he should
spend sometime in the kitchen.
If in town go to St. Laurent d'Aigouze and dine at LE GRIFFOU:

This hotel is a major disappointment. It looked nice on the web photos.

It is located at the end, with a gate, of one of the many marina dead-end roads. Nice location and the room had a patio, but that's about all the good I can say.

The rooms are in one-story "villas" with dark interior halls. Parking is close - that's a plus.

The room was very small and totally basic except for the tv, minibar, safe, and ceiling fan. There were NO toilitries in the bathroom (even bar soap), NO electrical outlets, NO sheets, NO solid interior doors (only sliding lattice screens), NO dresser, and NO hot water for the handheld shower that was in the tub. Apparently the hot water wouldn't come out if the shower head was more than a few feet above the tub.

The hotel location was nice, among the marina boats, but there weren't any stores or restaurants nearby (other than the hotel restaurant). We had to drive some distance to find dinner.

Anyway, it was a forgettable stay, and would not stay there again.

  • Liked — Scenic location, one-story building

A really great hotel for a short (or longer) break out of season...although I can imagine how crowded Port Camargue could be in high season and Le Spinaker is right in the middle of the Marina, surrounded by yachts of all sizes and it might not be so quiet and relaxing. Stunning views in almost every direction, particularly so at sunset. Very comfortable and well appointed, ensuite bedroom with sitting room, cableTV etc. Elegant tropical style grounds with round swimming pool, with subtle floodlighting at night. The Hotel restaurant was closed for the night we stayed (late Feb 07) but the restaurant recommended (also in Port Camargue) was an excellent alternative. Breakfast was well presented with plenty of both choice and quantity, qualities so often lacking in some hotels who think a Continental breakfast is only eaten by size zero models!! English spoken by reception staff but some knowledge of spoken French an advantage. We would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and will stay there again when next in the area.

Stayed February 2007
