“Grande dame hotel, now filled with tour buses”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

We had a lovely stay at the hotel, which has not lost any of its beauty in my opinion. However, the number of tour buses coming up was surprising, taking away from the old world feeling. (people posing with the doorman) There was a jacket rule for dinner, however woman were walking around in jeans, babies and children were noisy. The dinner was fine, but not worth the value in our opinion, though, the views from the main dining room are delightful. The spa was excellent, and our room was very comfortable with a lovely view.

This is the best hotel ever!!!
Right on the beach, what more could you ask for?? Amazing food, so close to the town, yet the big gates make you feel like you're in your own world. The pool boys are lush and you won't wanna leave the spa! Helpful staff and gorgeous location - a hotel fit for a princess!

Every year for one week in September, I live like the Empress Eugenie as do all the paying guests at the Hotel du Palais in Biarritz. The hotel, rooms and spa are lovely by all standards as well as being historic and situated at the end of the beach in centre town...who could ask for more. Biarritz is small enough to walk everywhere and big enough to get lost but the hotel draws your attention for its architectural beauty, then once inside this small summer palace makes you dream. The service is polite, professional and friendly, the restaurant Eugenie overlooking the sea is lovely and delicious and is worth at least one evening during every stay, the bar is comfortable and elegant and the pool is large, clean and a perfect focal point to view the beach, ocean and city scape....a perfect spot to be treated royally without pretension and not too big to be overlooked.... a favourite place to become a regular.

Room Tip: every room is lovely but a tad pricey so call ahead and make friendly contact.

Love almost everything about this hotel, even been fussed around by the Maître d' in the restaurant as we did not have jackets, and he insisted we loaned one, which we then hung on the back of our chair.

Stunning public rooms, location and service. In room breakfast, loverly.

Happily visit again.

Only room for improvement restaurant food was a little disappointing, but only because we expected to be amazed.

Room Tip: Room with a sea view a must, otherwise why stay here.
