"Standing up to its eponymous standards"
French, I stayed two nights at the Hotel du Palais for my first time in Biarritz. Before arriving, it is normal to have high expectations since this establishment is part of LHW and a 5* Palace. Being the historical residence of "L'imperatrice Josephine", the hotel efficiently fulfilled its Imperial standards. Every single detail of the hotel, whether it was in the room or in the front of house areas was calculated to the millimetre. Do not expect anything too modern, the hotel's aim is to maintain old fashion "imperial" classiness. Breakfast was fabulous, everything a gourmet could wish for, with a magnificent view on the ocean and its crashing waves. The staff is young, dynamic, witty and coordinated. The hotel has class without excess: guests are distinguished and well behaved (unlike a lot you might encounter in other luxury establishments). Thank you Hotel du Palais, you matched perfectly with my definition of hospitality!
"Iconic, full of history and relaxing!"
The Grand Dame of Biarritz! The hotel is full of history and the views on la Plage and the Atlantique ocean are unreal. The restaurant by the pool is great spot for lunch, classic, fresh and well prepared food. The Spa with the indoor pool and Jacuzzi is also a must. The rooms and bathrooms are large by French standards. We had a great time staying in this hotel and want to return.
Well, I went back and even if there is a change in management nothing has changed. Everything is still perfect. From the doorman, the concierge, the maids, and everyone you are in contact, they always have a very big welcome smile on their face, and their attitude reflect happiness in what they do. They are true professionals. The bar is a wonderful place to sit and relax in the afternoon, which seems to be the consensus among the people staying at the hotel. Again, outstanding service, great cocktails and sublime food. The restaurant is worth much better rating from Michelin. Brunch is also a must on Sunday Too bad that we had to leave , I was getting used to be pampered My girlfriend also loves the Spa, and trust me, she is the most difficult person to please in this world. Thank you to the new management for continuing the tradition
"Truly wonderful experience"
I stayed at the hotel as part of a conference for 3 days. From the moment you arrive at the hotel you know its a 5 star experience. Staff are friendly, attentive and always ready to help. The hotel and grounds are delightful and the hotel has the most wonderful position overlooking the beach. I stayed on the 4th floor and had a lovely view across the pool and the beach. Utterly wonderful experience.
"Best place to stay in Biarritz nothing could compare!"
Splurge and enjoy the true Biarritz, the elegance, comfort, stunning location are the best to be had at this lovely historic hotel. Worth every penny, you will have a lifetime of memories with the views by the pool and from your seaview room. Old world elegance, but without the stuffy feel, the staff are so relaxed and kind.
