Definition of a luxury hotel! I loved everything about my stay. Every single staff member I encountered was helpful and friendly. There was a bottle of wine and a box of delicious pastries waiting for me along with a handwritten note from the management which made me feel very welcomed. The food at the restaurant and the breakfast buffet were outstanding and the junior suite I stayed in made me feel like I was an honored guest at a royal palace. One of my favorite things about this hotel is the secure and direct access to the beach. I’ll definitely be back!

This property is gorgeous! This is a truly 5 star hotel, with 5 star amenities, services facilities and of course prices. If you are not expecting to spend too much on your stay, this is not the place for you. I read few reviews complaining about the prices. I guess these reviewers did not stay at the hotel to understand the level of service at this property. The hotel is beautiful and offers gorgeous views. Pool area is fantastic, overlooking the water. There are not private beaches in Biarritz, therefore the hotel does not offer chairs on the beach, however, there us easy access from the hotel to the beach should you want to swing in the ocean. (Note that the pool has salty water). Rooms: got upgraded to a corner room or suite. Super spacious and comfortable. Nicely decorated following the hotel style. Restaurant -Terrace: Food at the terrace is good. Had lunch and dinner in there and both times we enjoyed our meals. Do not expect a huge menu or huge plates, just the right amount. Lunch was about 90 euros for a Cesar salad French style with protein, a club sandwich, a bottle of water and a beer. Dinner for 2 was about 160 for 1 salad to share, 2 main, 2 glasses of wine and a bottle of water. I cannot wait to plan our trip back to Hotel du Palais!
