Véronique T. 03/09/2018

Le personnel est particulièrement aimable et disponible ! Petit déjeuner grandiose ! La salle à manger face à la mer est magnifique ! La décoration est parfaite, bien en phase avec l'époque du bâtiment! Un séjour inoubliable !

Anil K. 27/05/2018

Staff was extremely helpful and gracious in making surprise birthday dinner for my wife. The view from restaurant dining room overlooking the ocean is fantastic.

Isabelle P. 24/05/2018

This hotel is unique in several dimensions: the location, the historic building. I just love it. But the hotel rooms require a serious remodeling. The bathrooms are outdated (80s style), the upholstery is outdated too. The pool area was closed for remodeling and the hotel staff told me that the hotel will be closed for nearly two years starting this fall for a complete remodeling. I cannot wait to come back in 2021 and see a suite at the standard of this building. The dining room is spectacular. I love also the deck between the hotel and the spa above the beach of Miramar. I hope that the Napoleon III style will be maintained as well as all the old touches. The staff is great and helpful.

Maria Gabriela C. 23/05/2018

Totalmente recomendable. La ubicacion, la suntuosidad, la excelencia del personal. La belleza del paisaje, del palacio... Lo unico que lamentamos es no poder haber visto la piscina exterior en todo su esplendor por estar en mantenimiento, FELICITACIONES.

Juan Luis M. 02/05/2018

Lugar idílico para celebrar una gran ocasión.

Teddy W. 30/09/2017

Nous attendons les futures rénovations, mais absolument avec le respect de l'âme du Palace. Pas de cartes magnétiques. Gardez les clés traditionnelles SVP. Pour les chambres plus petites ou de base, une douche style italienne donnerait un coup de jeune, tout en respectant l'esprit luxueux du palais, car certaines SDB présentent un style un peu vieillot. Le rapport qualité/prix de votre table paraît élevé pour le type de cuisine traditionnelle. Attention au foie gras, emblème de la cuisine française qui ne représente absolument pas votre maison, remarque déjà signalée à votre personnel. de salle

Bruno G. 07/10/2017

Thanks for all the atentions

Lizabeth H. 07/09/2017

The hotel is gorgeous, the location excellent, the food superb, and every single one of the staff we encountered were professional and courteous. We had a fabulous view of the ocean. My only complaint was that the chairs in the room were not so comfortable. I understand that the hotel wants to keep the character of a palace, but Louis IV style chairs and chaise longue didn't work for me. If you want the experience of staying in a former palace, it will be a good choice.

Jose A. 03/09/2017

You need to improve your web site, first I try to book directly from you, I coudn't, so I book throught booking.com, which was extremely easy, them I regreted since I'm a hotel owner myself, them I canceled the booking.com reservation regardless I lost the free cancelation policy and I did it once again with you directly, I told it when I arrived at reception however I doubt they passed it along. For your benefit and considered these comments as a constructiv critics, PLEASE improve your web!!!!!
