Very nice hotel, the location is perfect in the middle of port Camargue. The rooms are well proportioned and very clean. they make an effort on sustainaibility offering sustainable products. the pool is small but nice and to be honnest with all the beaches around you don't need a bigger pool. the staff is very nice and polite. WIFI is free which is great.
the big disappointment is the 2 restaurants, first there is never a table free which i find quite odd as most of the tables always look empty, second the lady who is the boss is very arrogant, pretentious and not nice at all , they do not make any efforts for the client of the hotel most of the clients are from outside and they make only one service. We had dinner there and the food was by far not the best one i had, it was tasteless!only the waiters were nice! in the pool restaurant they do not pay attention in the morning and they lazily drag around the chairs and tables which makes an horrible noize and obviously wakes you up.
I will definitely go to this hotel again but have better addresses for the food!

Room Tip: room on the harbour side must be quieter as you don't have the restaurant in front of it

Many thanks to share your opinion. We are very happy you enjoy in our Hotel and we promise you to do better and to suggest you the best in our Restaurants …
Garden Grill and Spinaker Restaurant are successfully and have a little capacity … That’s why, we advise to our guests to reserve at least one week sooner.
We will be pleased to welcome you once again !

Unexpectedly nice location in the midst of unexpectedly nice Port Camargue's almost 2000 moorings - and appropriately named and pleasantly styled establishment. Our room (Suite Africaine) was generously proportioned (and could even have slept four) while the acclaimed restaurant lived up to its reputation by offering a first class cuisine with a remarkably light touch. Staff were also welcoming and friendly and the pricing justified. A couple, though, of minus points:
- the bathroom was small and cramped (especially around the wash basin). Bathroom doors were perforated - also to the WC - a somewhat disturbing and potentially distasteful feature (also since the wardrobe was located in the same space)
- the heated outdoor pool featured on the internet was not available when we visited in October (unheated due to the cold Mistral wind, we were told). Also, it's in any case relatively small and unsuited for serious swimming
- the Spa is also rather modest - and jacuzzi use unusually requires an advance reservation
- information/explanations like the above but also including how the breakfast buffet was organized (part, full or no service) was not automatic (as it should have been). Also, we only found out about the availability of a 'chariot' for the luggage after personally carrying our bags to the room
- despite the smiles, the restaurant service was more brusque than friendly (especially when, one evening, the restaurant lights around our table were turned off one by one just before 10pm).

Room Tip: Rooms have either a pool or marina view - of which the latter are probably more private

Thanks to let us know your opinion. The outdoor swimming pool is heated in the first October. Later, outside temperature is so low, it is not recommended to use it ! Instead of, you can of course benefit our private jacuzzi (free access). Indeed, this pool is to relax you ... For fitness, we suggest a free area dedicated to the sports.
You stayed in a Suite which is large of 36 square meters. Its bathroom owns a big bath, an electronic safe, a magnifying mirror, mini-bar ...
For each ckeck-in, when we escort our guest to his room,(although this is usually only reserved for the 4-star hotel) our staff suggests is help to bring luggages to the room. Indeed, as you said, you can also use our trolley.
About breakfast, this is a self-serve buffet, with salted and sugared cakes made by our Pastry Chef, home made yogurts, orange juice ...
We well noted the information about restaurant and we will transmit it to the waiters ... On your next stay, we hope (and do everything) to offer you only bonus points !

Many thanks to let us know your opinion. Indeed, with our famous wind 'Mistral', from one day to another, the pool can get some sand and others needles pine. The great location, on a peninsula, can offer you a peaceful place, surrounded only by beautiful boats and marinas. Five minutes driving, you can join the three nearest beaches. Spinaker Restaurant team highly works each day in Season ;-) So, in late summer, on monday and tuesday, we are pleased to introduce you some others typical establishments, close to our. Your satisfaction is ours. So, we will be happy to welcome you for an next stay 100 % satisfied !

We stopped here overnight having arrived in the area and used trip advisor to locate a suitable place to stay. I can confirm the reviews were accurate and the place is excellent. The rooms are arranged in a single story arrangement in blocks or 10 or so. Like private cabanas around the circular shaped pool. This is what I would call quaint and boutique compared to the larger tourist type hotel in the area. A really nice place to relax and with fantastic views of the boats in the marina.

The restaurant is also excellent. Ok we were stopped by on a Friday evening on October and it was pretty quite but they have a huge outside deck area to accommodate greater numbers in summer.

Finally the staff. Service was friendly and excellent. The receptionist was happy to give us a tour of all of the available rooms before we made out choice and the restaurant staff were very helpful in recommending from the menu.

Breakfast is a bit pricy at 15 Euros per person and whilst they provide a fair amount to eat, (and it can be delivered to your room to eat on you own private terrace), you would be struggling to eat everything supplied every day.

Parking and WiFi were both inclusive as was private use of the Hottub/SPA.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear well laid out and vary in size and price, so it really comes down to you budget...

What excellent sum up ! Do not hesitate to come back as soon as the sun is shining in order to benefit outside activities in Le Grau du Roi/Port-Camargue or maybe to go and lunch in our Restaurant 'Garden Grill' or why not have a swim in our heated swimming-pool ?!
Nevermind, winter, summer or on the season of your choice ... It always be a real pleasure to welcome you !

We stumbled across this little place whilst touring the south of France in June. we had emailed the hotel on the off chance they had a room and they gave us a fabulous last minute discounted rate. The hotel itself is tucked away through the Marina at Port Carmargue and once you arrive you are pleasantly surprised to find a pretty little hotel with the rooms arranged around the pool area. The place is spotless, the rooms are a fair size, each one is themed with a different destination or city and the furnishings and beds are comfortable. The BEST BIT?.... Breakfast served on the patio outside your room, next to the pool, choose from an extensive breakfast menu and ring the restaurant with your order, it is delivered within 15 minutes to your door! Perfect! There is an incredible restaurant at the hotel too as well as plenty of really great value places to eat in the local towns. The hotel is a 2 mile walk to the beach through the vast marina and once you arrive it is pleasant and uncrowded. the only downside, if there is one, is the wind, which in June was quite strong. But I would imagine if it was as windy in the summer it would be a welcome relief from the heat of the sun!

Many thanks for this so lovely rave ! We will be pleased to welcome you once again ... Maybe this summer ... You could enjoy the heated swimming-pool, the outside restaurant 'Garden Grill' or a room-service meal in the private terrace of the room ... Of course, you could also attest that a little wind is a welcome relief from the heat of the sun !
