Dress Code in Bars and Restaurants at Maritim Hotel

Can anybody who has been to the Maritim please answer whether men are allowed to wear shorts (the dress 3/4 type) in bars and restaurants in the Maritim. On the Maritim Website it states dress code as Casual or Smart Casual and only states long trousers for the Asian Restaurant, your reply would be appreciated.

We stayed at the Maritim in January.

Generally shorts and T shirts are acceptable in the restaurants at breakfast and lunch but a stricter dress code applies at dinner.

Smart casual means long trousers for gentlemen from 18.30 hrs onwards in all restaurants except Chateau Mon Desir. The latter is a 'fine dining' restaurant and the dress code is 'elegant' . This means long trousers closed shoes and collared shirts for gentlemen, no jeans.

It's perhaps worth mentioning that one evening we saw one man refused entry into the Belle View restaurant because he was wearing shorts.

Hope this helps. Have a good holiday. It's a fantastic hotel.

Hi I'm at the sands right now and was like yourself, concerned about evening wear. I am pleased to report, at the sands anyway, that men are welcome to wear shorts to dinner. The restaurant hostess told us that the hotel manager had told all staff not to bother guests wearing shorts as he recognised that many guests felt more comfortable without trousers, and only swimwear was banned from dining areas. Hopefully more hotels take this stance, and I hope your hotel is as relaxed and accommodating.

Cheers,

Nick

Well that's a big change at The Sands, maybe because of the heat? I've seen people turned away for being inappropriately dressed on several of my visits there.

That's good to hear, Nick!

I think we may be having a few nights of dinner on the beach (Le Prince management says where guests don't wear long trousers because of the heat they would set a table on the sand :)
