"In order to do the Domaine justice, I am going to start with the beauty of the place and its setting, then its amenities and services, and then finish with the best part of the stay - the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. My assessment is that this is quite simply a must-visit location: The Domaine impresses at multiple levels from the moment you arrive. For example, once you park, there is a beautiful large space in front of the entrance. Grass and trees welcome you. Those, like us, who came in search of space and a place to breathe will find it here. The Domaine literally sits on a golf course and there are kilometres of paths to walk. This includes a very manageable (we even did it with a pushchair) 30-40 minute walk into Les Baux. You would be nuts to come to this Domaine and not take advantage of the grounds. The Domaine itself is beautifully built and decorated. Again, there is emphasis on space. The courtyard inside is large, leafy, meticulously clean and an excellent space to share with other visitors keen to enjoy a drink outside the bar or simply to relax in front of the fountain. There is also a large swimming pool. We didn't use it as we came out of season and so it was not open. However, we saw staff tending to it every day and it is doubtlessly a major plus point in the summer. Breakfast is in a stunning glass conservatory that lets in glorious morning sunshine and reminds you of the lovely countryside awaiting you. The buffet consists of a wide variety of food for all diets and preferences. The attention to detail is excellent. Discreet members of staff show you to your table, provide you with a hot drink of choice, point out children trays and glasses so that the little ones can also enjoy their meal, provide high chairs for babies, etc. You feel that you are starting the day in the best possible way. While we were there, there were a number of food options for lunch and dinner including a Bistrot, a more formal restaurant, and a more informal bar area. All three share excellent service. Although I am not a 'foodie' the kitchen is extremely competent - the meals were delicious. The Domaine has a number of other amenities that make it much more than just a place to sleep. In no particular order: there is a small (but sufficient) spa that consists of an indoor pool (not really for exercise but very tastefully lit and with some sort of air hydrator (bubbles) for those who like that sort of thing), jacuzzi, sauna (good size), hammam (I didnt use), treatment rooms, showers, and refined changing rooms (think London gentleman's club). There is a gym (clean and well equipped although a little small), a small cinema (we didn't use it), and a reading room (great place for family board games). Of course, right next to the Domaine is the golf course entrance for those who want to play. You find the same combination of class, cleanliness and space in the bedrooms. We were in a junior suite and there was ample room "
"We loved every minute at this hotel. Our room- a jr suite- was lovely, spacious. The pool was really peaceful and nice. The breakfast was delicious. The golf was very good- I did have a broken cart wheel and though reported it and got the same cart again the next day. The spa treatments I had were great. Thank you to Cleo. Louis Pierre, the Concierge, was super helpful and responsive to all of our questions. Very professional. All of the staff were so friendly. The only thing that needs to be improved is housekeeping. It was very good but inconsistent. I would stay here again in a minute. And I am picky."
"Excellent hotel in an excellent location. We've spent two nights here and the overall result has been magnificent despite two minor critical opinions. The location is superb, close to Le Baux, a gorgeus village in the Provence area. Quick check-in. The room is fantastic. Spacious, with a very comfortable bed, a stunning shower, a complimentary mini-bar, filled with soft drinks, water, chocolates, etc... We couldn't visit the SPA due to our tight schedule but all the other common areas were really good, especially the bar where we spent some time, enjoying some drinks there. What was somehow disappointing for a luxury hotel such as this was the breakfast (too simple) and the Bistro. We had one dinner there and the whole area is too small, with tiny tables and a menu with few options and extremely expensive, taking into account there's another gastronomic restaurant in the venue (Apiho), with very high prices. Apart from this, it's been a fantastic experience."
