Not many hotels in France offer as much as the Hotel du Palais: directly located on the ocean, a very large pool, an excellent terrasse overlooking the beach and sea, direct access to a great beach, very good restaurants (not only serving good food and offering professional service but set in a decor and with a view of the ocean...

Hote du Palais overlooks the Atlantic Ocean at Biarritz SW France. The building is exceptionally elegant and is without exception the most stylish building in the whole of Biarritz with it's outdoor pool, terrace, mini golf course and children's play area. The very best for me was the Spa. This pool is so calm and relaxing and designed to look...

My husband and I spent 2 nights here recently and while the public spaces have that Grande Epoch feel, details keep it from being perfect. On arrival we had a an excellent reception, great.

We were expecting way more from one of France's finest hotels, one of the original 7 French "palaces" (in 2012 they are already 12 of them) but Hotel du Palais failed to deliver and, as far as we are concerend, would never consider it again, least to say recommend to our family or best friends. The general issue is the...

Beautiful location, romantic and historic. Nice staff and very nice room. Expensive, but great breakfast. A bit too cold in the pool, and no kids pool.

Ahhhh, total bliss. Breathtakingly beautiful and historical hotel...Our suite overlooked the Atlantic and the lighthouse...Sumptous breakfasts in the Belle Epoque dining room, with everything prepared with finesse . The salt water pool was delicious...the bed linens crisp, the bathroom and amenities were of the highest quality. The hallways were virtual trips in history: with photos and notes documenting the famous...

I had been looking forward to staying at the Hotel du Palais for some time and our stay did not disappoint. The service was impeccable and our spacious ocean view Junior suite had stunning views with the requisite high ceilings and elegant furnishings. Only fault I could find is the bathrooms need to be remodeled. We had lunch at the...

We had a lovely stay at the hotel, which has not lost any of its beauty in my opinion. However, the number of tour buses coming up was surprising, taking away from the old world feeling.
