This hotel is located on the beach in Saint Claire which is just outside the French Riviera and the town of Le Lavandou. The beach is an all sand beach and the water is calm. The beach is used primarily by young couples with small children and senior citizens.
Reservations must be made by email, but this wasn't a problem. They responded back within a couple of days. We paid 140 Euros for a 2 bedroom suite. Which is inexpensive for this area of France. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was 8.90 Euros per person and was the typical continental style breakfast.
The staff don't speak English, so you need to have some knowledge of French. If you're in a real bind, the bartender is from Wales.
There was adequate parking at the hotel. They also had a washer and dryer on site. However, each machine cost 4 Euros to use and the dryer kept tripping the circuit breaker before the load was complete.
The town of Le Lavandou has tons of shops and was fun to walk around. There are many good cafes and restaurants in town.
The hotel website is www.les-flots-bleu.net. The rooms on the website look bigger and nicer than the rooms we had, but the exterior pictures are accurate.
