I spent 1 night at La Marina in March. The hotel is in a delightful situation at port Santa Lucia. I loved my room - I booked a Superior with a queen bed and sea view, poolside. It was comfortable with a balcony overlooking the marina and it was very relaxing to sit and look at the luxury yachts.
The hotel has good facilities (bar, swimming pool, gym, pool table etc). Free wifi is also available. You can easily reach the city centre on foot - follow the sea front for a walk of about 20 minutes. There is a good sandy beach in St Raphael.
The breakfast buffet was enjoyable and it was lovely sitting eating facing the marina. Room service is also available.
Be aware a tax is imposed by the city, EUR 1.60 per person, per night.
I enjoyed my stay but had some minor niggles. The Quai Raphael restaurant is closed on weekends and unfortunately although there is a good selection of restaurants close to the hotel, just about every restaurant in the city is closed on a Sunday or maybe it was the time of year. The guy on reception recommended a restaurant by the marina for dinner and I went there but because I was a single woman dining alone I was completely ignored by the waiting staff so I got up and walked out again and raided the Pringles and nuts in my minibar. less

Thank you very much for your nice comment and your satisfaction about your stay in our hotel.
We apologize for the disagreement at the dinner time. In law season, almost restaurants are effectively closed on Sunday, but for a next time, we inform you that it is always possible to ask for a room-service at our reception desk.
We hope to see you soon again.
