    The air conditioning unit left a malodorous smell a couple of hours after it switched off.

    Great beach view and functional room. Air conditioning was a beneficial feature.

    Caravan park behind, so beach very crowded. Couldn't find anywhere to eat dinner but later heard there was a restaurant in the opposite direction to the way we walked.

    Across from the beach. Perfect location. Basic but comfortable room and very clean with a large tv.

    I asked for an early morning call on my day of departure which never happened. No phone or safe deposit in bedroom. Limited choice of eating in the immediate area, hotel is some distance from town. No problem if you have a car, but be prepared to walk 45 minutes if you want to get back after 8.30pm. Very difficult to find taxis in Palavas unless booked in advance.

    A small 2-star hotel directly across a road from the beach. Some rooms have a direct view of sea and beach. Rooms small but clean. Female reception staff helpful, but see above...

    NOT for a romantic night by the sea!

    • Two-Bedroom Apartment "Signature" with Sea View & Terrace
    • Stayed 1 night

    On a break from working trip, we booked the room on the grounds of a very deceiving photo, place on this site, thinking we would have a beautiful view, and the sound of the sea! Sadly we arrive at the hotel less than twenty minutes after booking. but the young lady said, to cancel there would be a premium to pay! As one can see from the real photo of the room, between the sea and hotel, is the busy main road, traffic till past midnight, commencing again early in the morning, with the dustbin lorry! The other side, public loo, bottle bin, and a drop out sleeping rough, in his van, who pestered my wife on the way to the beach! As I said to the receptionist, this photo should be removed.

    The room was very clean indeed, and very well equipped, would be a great place for a family!

    If you want to eat your croissant,drink your coffee and look at the sea in the same time,that's the place! Small rooms but "cosy" and clean.The stuff very friendly.You don't need more at this price.Next time I'll try the appartements.

    The shower was terrible. It was like using a hose to clean yourself. Price seemed a bit high for the locality and facilities. The staff wasnt too pleasant to deal with either.

    The beds were well made. General cleanliness and proximity to the beach. Self check-in, good for late night arrival.

    Bed was the most uncomfortable I have slept in. Maid left bedroom window open and we had to murder 100 mosquitos when we arrived back late! Walking distance to town was too far - Should have balconies. Was used for short stay guests mainly - would not have booked if I had known.

    Breakfast was nice. Beach views lovely. French remain as adorable as always.

    The bathroom in the room we stayed in needs a really good clean. The curtain in place of a bathroom door is an odd choice. This is a self service check in hotel but with 2 different key pads at the front door it is confusing to know how to get entry

    Hotel is literally across the road from the beach. Quiet area, and there's a pizza restaurant right next door, who also serve some amazing mussel dishes.

    L'hotel se trouve en face de la mer, il n'y a que la route a traverse pour rejoindre la plage, au mois d'avril c'est suffisamment calme pour pouvoir se garer facilement et trouver de la place sur la plage. Le personnel est charmant.
