Hotel & Residence Les Medes

We stayed 2 nights aux Medes, a very well located hotel, in the heart of Porquerolles. Our room had a kitchenette (which is good when you have small children) and was simple, but agreable. We were missing a little a balcony, but the Hotel has a very nice garden with a small waterfall. In September the garden was not crowded so it was really nice. Same for this beautiful island, so nice to go after the holiday period to avoid the crowd.

Very good location close to ferry, village shops and restaurants. Rooms well configured with a small kitchenette. A bit surly at reception on arrival but the place grew on us. It is good value as long as you recognise it is run on low overheads - there are relatively few staff. Breakfast efficient and worth having though you could have this cheaply in a number of restaurants. Did not try half board option and think this was a good decision because there are a very wide range of places to eat at different price levels. Most of these are on the main square whereas Les Medes restaurant is up a side street. The village is very busy with day trippers during the day but pleasantly quiet from 6pm onwards.

I recently stayed at Les Medes in Porquerolles island for a few days of vacations with my partner and baby.

The hotel is centrally located, about 500 meters from the pier (the hotel can provide a shuttle service for your luggages).
As we were there in off-peak period, the atmosphere was very calm (and price acceptable...). Staff was efficient and friendly.

The room was nicely decorated and furnished (I would say nicer than the one you will find on their website). It was large enough to fit in the baby cot (provided by the hotel for free).
The bathroom was very clean, with a nice bathtub.
There was a very convenient kitchenette inside the room, with was very convenient (by the way, don't forget to bring your own food from the continent, as the options on the island are as poor as the price is high;-).

I would definitively return to Les Medes if I had to go back to Porquerolles.

Location was great in the middle of everything. Breakfast was great and there were many things to choose from comparing other breakfasts which we have had during our trip. Room was clean, big enough for two, there was a small kitchenette in case some would like to make their own breakfast, lunch etc.

The island is just wonderful. June was good month to visite island as there were not yet so many people wondering around.

Have just returned from a wonderful week on the beautiful island of Porquerolles. Definitely wouldn't want to visit the island in July or August as by all accounts it is very busy.

The hotel suited our needs extremely well. We did not want to have to eat at the same place every evening and most of the hotels on the island tie you into half board during high season. At Les Medes we opted for a bedroom with small kitchenette so that we could make our own breakfast. That way we were also able to try out the many different restaurants in the village.
The room was basic but had everything we needed.

We chose to stay on the basis of room only, with no meals and cleaning only once during the week, but if you choose to stay as a hotel guest you get daily cleaning and breakfast.

Free wi-fi access plus a computer in the entrance hall which was readily available.

Friendly staff and lovely atmosphere in a quiet location in the village. Would definitely go again.

Excellent hotel in very good position close to the harbour, very comfortable with excellent breakfasts. Our room had a kitchen and fridge and all the equipment needed for self catering. At the back of the hotel was a terrace with sun beds and a lovely waterfall, ideal for relaxation. Staff very friendly and helpful, would definately go back and can thoroughly recommend.

... then this is the place to stay. Reminds me of a youth hostel if anything. Very communal, with ping pong table and TV in the 'lobby' area. Don’t count on overly friendly service – they’re very much into giving you your room key and then making sure you’re bill is settled. Although when we arrived at the port, they had a golf cart bring us & our luggage to the hotel (no cars on the island). There is a bicycle rental just across the street. Highly recommend biking around the island for a day and going through the vineyards and discovering hidden alcoves. In the end, I wish we had stayed at a place with more character – Try the Auberge, or if you can foot the bill, Le Mas du Langoustier, where we had lunch one day and spent an afternoon at their beach. By the way, any seafood at the local restaurants will be extremely fresh, so take advantage! My husband and I still reminisce about the “Moules Provencales”… steamed mussels drenched in fresh crushed tomatoes, olives, and basil.
