Are you dreaming of a seaside getaway, and are you in love with the Camargue? The Spinaker Hotel may be the place for you! Located in Le Grau du Roi, this hotel offers comfortable rooms and a privileged location facing the port, allowing you to enjoy all that the Camargue has to offer.

While the rooms of the4-star hotel are equipped with all the necessary comforts, including comfortable beds, a television (sometimes several in the suites) and a private bathroom, some rooms also have a balcony overlooking the sea, ideal for enjoying the beautiful view of the port. The name of the hotel is inspired by the spinnaker (triangular sail used on yachts to balance the thrust of the mainsail), and gives the color, with its direct view on the sailboats. The suites tested are available in 2 or 4 person versions for a family with children.

The Spinaker Hotel also offers an outdoor pool to cool off in the summer and a fitness room for those who want to stay in shape during their vacation. Breakfast is served each morning on a lovely rooftop terrace, giving you a great start to the day.

Grau-du-Roi is an ideal destination for those looking to enjoy the beach. The Spinaker Hotel is located just a few minutes walk from the sea, offering easy access to one of the beautiful beaches typical of the region, such as l'Espiguette or le Boucanet.

In the Camargue, there are many tourist activities to discover. First of all, you can enjoy nature by riding horses, cycling or walking in the nature reserves and animal parks of the region, such as the Seaquarium, the Bird Park or the Crocodile Farm.

You can also immerse yourself in the Camargue culture by visiting the manades, where you can see the bulls and horses of the Camargue, as well as discover the daily life of the gardians. Then, you can discover the different historical sites of the region, such as the Saint-Nicolas fort or the Arena of Nîmes. The activities on the sea side are not in rest, between the catamaran, the Kit surf or even the fishing in sea.

Back at the hotel, the restaurant offers Mediterranean cuisine. The modern room and the terrace offer a view of the marina and its pleasure boats, undeniable assets. The fresh and seasonal ingredients are highlighted in each dish, pleasantly executed, although unfortunately without surprises. Unfortunately, we do not recommend family meals either, as the children's menus are limited (only mashed potatoes for example). Finally, the absence of freshly squeezed juice at breakfast is to be noted, quite rare in this category of restaurant and hotel.

In summary, theSpinaker Hotel is an overall nice choice (despite some shortcomings) for those looking for comfortable and well-located accommodations to enjoy this beautiful area. With its comfortable rooms and proximity to the beach, this hotel in the Gard is a great choice for a vacation between the sea and the beautiful Camargue.
