Heading over to Saint-Tropez Bay? Great choice, mon amie! This post on the best hotels will help you choose where to stay in St. Tropez!

I spent a summer working in a hotel in Saint-Tropez, so I know a good place to stay when I see one! 

I recommend staying inside the town if it is your first time visiting. It’s more convenient because you’ll be less dependent on a car – so important for getting around! Also, the center is where all the action is!

However, you may prefer the outskirts or the beach, and that’s also fine. I compared dozens of hotels and apartments and sorted them into multiple categories for your convenience: best in town, outside of town, near the beach, and for families. 

This way, all you have to do after reading is to book your favorite spot and get going! Btw, make that reservation in advance to secure the best deals!

Check out the locations of the best St. Tropez hotels I recommend in this article:

Also, there are multiple areas where you can stay to make the most of your trip! Check out these 6 top areas:

  • City Center – This is the best area for first-time visitors since you will have it all! From incredible beaches to historical buildings, the city center is perfect for filling your Instagram feed with amazing pictures!
  • Old Town – This is the best neighborhood for nightlife, filled with great bars and restaurants!
  • Old Port – Where you will find fresh local produce as well as restaurants serving delicious dishes!
  • Pampelonne Beach – Want to spot celebrities? This is the place to stay!
  • Port Grimaud – If traveling with kids, I recommend staying here!
  • Saint-Maxime – If you want to experience luxury but at a more reasonable price, Saint-Maxime is the place to book your stay!

NOTE: Many St. Tropez hotels are closed from October to May. Consider booking an apartment if you’re visiting during this period to secure your stay.

Here’s a quick guide to help you choose the ideal base for your vacation depending on your travel preferences:

  • In town – for convenience, nightlife, shopping, and dining
  • Outside of town – for seclusion, budget-friendly options, and peace
  • Near the beach – for easy beach access and beautiful views

Best St. Tropez hotels in town

Staying in town has many benefits: you won’t be stuck in traffic jams every day and you’ll have easy access to top-notch eateries, quirky shops, and tourist hotspots like the Citadelle, Musée de la Gendarmerie, and the Port. 

You’ll have a few beaches nearby, but the good ones will require you to have a car or take shuttle buses (which are available throughout the season).

St. Tropez is expensive, so you’ll find exceptional luxury hotels in the town. This also means that, unfortunately, budget hotels are impossible to find in this part of the French Riviera. If you’re planning a budget stay, check out the “outside of town” section.

Luxury (€400 and up)

  • Byblos – The most iconic of all luxury hotels in Saint-Tropez is located in the heart of the city. It features 2 on-site restaurants, an outdoor pool, and beautiful Provance-inspired rooms! Treat yourself to an afternoon in the spa or a workout in the gym. They offer private parking at an additional charge.
  • Hotel de Paris Saint-Tropez – One of St. Tropez’s most popular hotels situated in Place de la Gendarmerie (the heart of the town!). Here, you’ll find a rooftop pool, a sun terrace, and a fabulous interior in the 1970s style! 
  • Hotel La Ponche – This elegant hotel has sea view rooms, an on-site bar and restaurant, private parking, and classy minimalist rooms. Best of all, the location is central but quiet enough so you can get a good night’s sleep!
  • Sea Apartment – This Saint-Tropez Airbnb has a perfect rating, a fantastic location, and a bohemian interior perfect for the romantic souls!

Mid-range (from €180 to €400)

  • Hotel des Lices – My favorite 4-star hotel in St. Tropez with a movie-like pool setup and the most charming sun beds. You’ll be located near the center, have a fancy restaurant on the property, and enjoy elegant rooms with super comfortable bedding! 
  • Le Mouillage – This cute hotel is within walking distance from the city center and has the most tropical room décor! Enjoy their outdoor pool, fabulous breakfast, and a late-night bar! A great option for couples and families.
  • Hotel B Lodge – This mid-range hotel was the most affordable option I found during my research. The hotel is next to the Citadel (great location!), serves a daily buffet breakfast, and has comfy rooms with basic amenities like free Wi-Fi, AC, a minibar, and a flat-screen TV.

Best St. Tropez hotels outside of town

I recommend staying out of town if you’re looking for where to stay in St. Tropez on a budget. You’ll find many affordable hotels and apartments between St. Tropez and Port Grimaud! Or if you want to stay closer to Pampelonne Beach, plenty of options are available between the beach and the Old Town!

In general, I recommend travelers who appreciate seclusion and privacy more than anything to stay outside of town. You’ll definitely have a good night’s sleep and be surrounded by fresh air, but you will be away from the restaurants and shops.

The good part is that shuttle buses are available across the bay, so you can always make it to the city center without a car. If you’d like to rent one, however, you can do so here.

Luxury (€400 and up)

  • Hotel Château de la Massardière – This fabulous hotel is a 19th-century castle, and it’s located on a hill with the most scenic views of the Mediterranean! Splurge out and enjoy royalty treatment in their spa, hot tub, pool, private balcony, and 2 on-site restaurants! They also offer free parking.
  • Hotel Lou Pinet – This 5-star dreamy accommodation is located near Canoubiers Beach but also has a private swimming pool, a bar, a terrace, and a restaurant. It’s an excellent luxury option for families with kids but also for couples. 
  • Sezz Saint-Tropez – This 5-star accommodation has a modern outdoor swimming pool and an outdoor shower! All of their suites have their own private courtyard, too. You will probably not find another hotel with these features! Plus, they offer a free shuttle service to the city center.

Best St. Tropez hotels on the beach

Some of the best beaches around are Bouillabaisse Beach, Plage de Tahiti, Plage de Canoubiers, and Pampelonne Beach. 

The most popular is Pampelonne Beach where the whole St. Tropez vibe is! This is the longest beach around, as it stretches for 5km! Take the bus line 8742 from the center, and you’ll get here in less than 30 minutes. Many luxury hotels will have transportation provided as well. 

Note that most beach clubs are closed in winter (October – May), but if you travel from June through September, you can spend the day at either one of the paid or the public beach areas and catch a tan. 

Most private beaches will require you to rent an umbrella and chairs, and the price is from €30 to €100 per day. I highly recommend booking your beach equipment in advance in your local beach club if you’re visiting in July or August!

Don’t be surprised if you see one or two people topless. This practice is pretty common in the south of France!

NOTE: While the beautiful St. Tropez beaches have many hotels that give a front-row seat to the ocean’s magic, there aren’t many located directly on the beach (because there is a road separating the beachline from the buildings). This is for a simple reason – St. Tropez beaches are kind of small.

Luxury (€400 and up)

  • La Ferme D’Augustin – A fabulous stay with various room types, from Junior Suites to Classic Rooms to Single Rooms, ideal for all traveler types. The accommodation is 5 minutes from the town by car and just a short walk from the beach. Best of all, it has that home away from home feel! 

Mid-range (from €180 to €400)

  • Studio Centre – A stunning beachfront apartment with everything you can imagine! Want to relax? A sun terrace is perfect for that, but if you want more adventure, you can hike or cycle in town! I’m telling you, this apartment has it all!
