Les Roches Blanches Review

First built as a private home in 1887, this cliff-side villa takes in smashing views of the port and the Cap Canaille, both from the best rooms and from the panoramic dining hall. The beautifully landscaped terrace is shaded by massive pines, and the horizon pool appears to spill into the sea. Yet the aura is far from snooty or deluxe; it's friendly and low-key. Meal plans are available.

    Relaxing and worth the expense!

    We stayed two nights, but actually spent 3 days there. We initially booked this place due to the shore front location within walking distance to town and the pictures of the amazing pool. I actually expected to be disappointed as often pictures can be misleading, but both of these ended up being better! There were several terraces along the front of the pool with lounge chairs that ranged from full sun to full shade, grouped areas of chairs to private nooks and pedestals. I also had low expectations of the service based on prior reviews, but was very pleased with how friendly and attentive the staff were, particularly at the front desk. They held our bags on arrival and departure days while we enjoyed the pool and walked to town. Extra towels were no problem, even let us take them offsite on our kayak trip. We had one of the less expensive rooms, which was plenty large enough, simply decorated with a very large bathroom with separated toilet stall. We had a window with a view of the water at least, and since we spent most of our time by the pool, it was ok with us not having a terrace and saving $100E a night. We only ate breakfast and lunch here and would say it was decent, but didn't quite justify the higher cost in comparison to many of the waterfront restaurants in town. Ultimately, I definately recommend this place for a good splurge and relaxing trip.
