    A large anonymous golf/conference/wedding venue in a pleasant green setting.

    The hotel is very large, decor is dated and the reception and entrance, with its red carpet, quite tacky. Although the room was clean, and had a large balcony, there was no outlook. An armchair may have added some comfort. Overall, it felt like a conference/wedding venue. There actually was a wedding on the night we were there but it was an outdoor event and not heard in the room.

    The golf course which the hotel overlooks was the main attraction for choosing this hotel. The location in the hills outside Bandol meant there was no issue with parking and the surrounds were very pleasant.

    • Deluxe Double Room with Sea and Golf Course View

    Wine glasses were not provided in the room, only bathroom glasses. There is no "casual"restaurant for dinner, the golf clubhouse resto is open only until 3.30pm.

    Excellent room, comfortable bed and linens. The adjacent winery (a separate business from the hotel) is open on sunday until early evening. Very private and relaxed - our view from the terrace of the 18th hole and the sea was gorgeous from dawn until dusk. This is a destination resort, and access to shopping needs a car.

    The prices for extras are way too high, the sort of prices you expect in a luxury resort (which this is definitely not). For example, the 25 euro charge for breakfast is frankly disgraceful. The hotel takes too much advantage of the fact that there are no cafes, restaurants or bars within easy distance. The kid's club advertised as available during the summer turned out to be closed at the weekends and then closed completely on 21 August. When we did try to put the kids in, the club was fully-booked......Really poor. The pool is strangely separated from the hotel; swimming involves a long trip through the hotel, down floors, through corridors, down a long walk-way........This serves to remind you that the hotel is first and foremost a conference hotel and not a family hotel.

    Beautiful location in the hills above Bandol. The bedroom was of a very good size, the golf and tennis facilities were excellent, the staff very professional, friendly and helpful. Bandol is a really pleasant and entertaining town.

    • Stayed 6 nights

    Staff a bit condescending, we knew that it was between two town, but it got more on our nerves than we thought it would, especially as the paths around there are really quite stony so it's proper hiking, the indoor pool is heated but still really quite cold (especially with a baby) and what bugged us most is that the whole place just really needs some TLC, I am sure it used to be great but it needs a new coat of paint (which to be fair they are doing in some places). Paying 250 Euros a night you expect a bit more. And 25 Euros for breakfast is just crazy. We never had it but went to a wonderful bakery just 500 metres down the road towards Bagnol. If the prices were a bit lower I would give it a very good, but you don't get what you pay for.

    We had a apartment and the view from 8th floor was absolutely stunning. The apartment was quite big and well equipped, you had nearly everything you needed in the kitchen to cook (spatula missing ;)), wifi flawless, the bed was big and comfy, everything was clean (our cleaning lady Adriana was great)

    An oasis with golf and sea views.

    Noisy check-in desk (not the hotel's fault), but it is adjacent to the bar, full of people enjoying themselves, and people checking in beside us were exuberant (i.e. extremely loud). A small quibble - a mirror over the desk for drying hair would be helpful (there was no powerpoint near the long mirror in the hallway.)

    It was unusual and delightful to be over- rather than underwhelmed by a hotel. It was excellent. Our recently-renovated room was elegant, spotless, clean lines, with a brand new bathroom, high-quality supplies in the bathroom, bedlinens good, bed v. comfortable. Very high standard of housekeeping. Also, unusually for french hotels (who are a bit behind in this) a tea-tray. A delightful terrace, private, with views of the golf course and the sea. Thank you for an excellent stay, and a shout-out to Roberto who checked us in and gave us a lovely room. Parking plentiful and there was no charge.

    Would have been nice to have breakfast in bath robe as and early morning swim, then eat a relaxing breakfast and then back to the pool. Instead we had to go back to the room get dressed then back to the room to put on swim wear and bath robe.... No tea spoons for the tea and coffee facility in the room. Dinning room lighting was a bit bright.

    Room was excellent bed very comfy, staff were very friendly, dinner was good (although on booking we were told there was no availability for dinner but when we went to the dinning room at 9pm the waiter gave us a table no problem, omelette for breakfast was excellent and there was an excellent choice of food and drinks on offer. Outdoor Pool area is fabulous.

    total and utter disappointment on the condition of the hotel! it is a very old property. the staff told us it has not been renovated in 20 years! they are doing the renovation now so many parts are not available - for e.g. the gym, changing rooms for indoor pool etc. the apartment was a big disappointment too! old upholstery on sofa, balcony door couldn't be locked, there was even termite on balcony shutters! and this was after we were moved from a bad apartment on the first floor! and given an apartment with a "better" view. we were used to Dolce Chantilly which is far better and newer and cleaner! there was no tea/coffee in the room. the common areas need a change of carpet as it is so old! even the sink in the bathroom was broken! only good part - the staff was nice, but that too not all managers! Not coming back to this property for sure!

    Had a poor experience. No bar at pool, went to get drink in hotel lobby. No staff at bar initially. Waited then told by staff couldn't serve us as in pool dressing gown, but no other guests either in lobby or outside on terraces. Staff argued/shouted policy at us. No flexibility at all; and we were the guests. Left us with no drinks and v poor opinion of hotel. Hotel is tired and needs makeover and is overpriced. Room service menu v poor options. No tea/coffee making facility in room. Would not recommend this hotel, unless you wanted to play golf.

    Compared to our expectations the older apartments weren't to our satisfaction. Fortunately it seems they are refurbishing in the winter so I hope a return visit will be even better.
