We had s very nice stay, super service, room clean and tidy, 3 min walk to the beach, perfect for family. Allways a smile from the hotel employees and helpful with everything. We will like to get back soon😊

We had a very good stay in the hotel. Hotel was better than our expectations, was clean and close to the beach. Most restaurants and shopping areas are at walking distance from hotel. Beautiful lobby , clean rooms but small in size. They have beach area but one need to pay to use it.

Our family party stayed here last year and returned again this summer to attend a wedding. The hotel is conveniently situated between the promenade and the Rue d'Antibes. The service is efficient and friendly. The rooms are very clean and smartly appointed. We found the breakfasts to be very good with fresh eggs to order. One can sit outside for breakfast. I note the discussion about the charges for the beach, but this is common practice in the south of France and indeed in Italy. This area is expensive, so one should not get aggravated about the cost of staying in this hotel or in the area generally. The beach service is good. Thee is no swimming pool. The hotel still lacks a comfortable bright lounge or sitting area, but there is an area on the first floor by the restaurant, but not very inviting. The ground floor bar is nice but rather dark. We would stay here again.

I stayed at the hotel in June for four nights. It was a wonderful experience. The front desk really looks after us. It was our honeymoon. They gave us an upgrade with access to the sunbed included. The waiter at the coffee was super friendly and helpful. The whole trip was wonderful. We highly recommend. Looking forward to come back to Cannes. Best trip ever.

Hotel is very nice, little worn but need and tidy. Rooms big and really comfy beds. Airconditioning did not work well, but they tryid to recover and did bring a fan to the room. Terace was looking to other buildings face but we did not spend time on it, so did not bother. One would expect this level of hotel to have a pool, but did not have. Private beach is ok, but the toilets in there were a messy.

Convenient location near the best shops and close to supermarket should you want one. The hotel has their own beach which you have to pay for the sunbeds on and it's a small area, but the public beach is right there too to use. Room was nice. Good bed and nice carpet and lovely new bathroom. Staff ok and had a good stay but found the road a bit noisy early morning.

I can only really mirror image the 1 star review below. To have to pay for the beech access as a guest is something I have never come across at such a high cost £40 pp per day! They also took a €600 deposit on check in for damages and mini bar again 3 times what I would expect, this amount also varies from guest to guest as I witnessed waiting in the reception for my check out car to arrive. I am not short of a few quid but it's the way they don't highlight the costs that really frustrates me. The air con is poor in the room. The full hotel needs a refurb as it looks shabby and tired throughout. I have stayed in many 4&5&7 star hotels and this is not worthy of it's 4 star as it stands. Plus point is location only. They will tell you they have upgraded you but this is not the case as putting me on the 7th floor above the main junction is not an upgrade and the room was the same I booked. The breakfast at €24 each is poor quality and very poor value. Room is cleaned when they wish at no set time and is a wipe over job. The mini bar is the most expensive I have seen in the world. My advise is stay in the Carlton on the front and stay well clear from this 70's concrete throw back. Cannes is lovely the hotel is not

I have booked a 4 night break for the family to celebrate my parents 39th anniverssary. Main reason of booking this hotel was the fact the hotel states it has a private beach, having stayed at many hotels around the world and used thier private beaches it really does add to a relaxing beach break and this is what I was expecting here! I just read another review which suggested a charge for using the hotels private beach. I called the hotel to enquire and to my astonishment I was told there is a minimun€29 per person charge of using the private beach PER DAY, in fact the charge is for the beds which may sound reasonable HOWEVER, hotel guests can not use the beach without having paid for a bed. This makes the use of the beach a mandatory cost! Unbelievable!! This is not advertised by the hotel at anytime of booking, in fact I called the hotel prior to booking and there was no mention of this. This in my view is mis selling and unless i decide to pay an ADDITIONAL €480 for hidden costs my family will not enjoy the access to a private beach which was advertised and sold! Having spoken to the hotel duty manager, I was told abruptly in fact because of limitation of beds, even if guests pay they are not guaranteed a bed on the private beach. Also, i was told, i could have booked "packages" which included the private beach. This again was not advertised bythe hotel when i called, or at time of booking through Expedia. In fact, as one of selling points of the hotel, the descriptions lists the private beach facilities. Cannes is a beautiful part of the world and having visited previously this isn't my experience of the service and hospitality offered. So don't be put of visiting Cannes but indeed be aware of the hidden costs of this Hotel before you book. I did ask for the hotel general managers details to contact them directly, but there was reluctance to provide the details. I finally got the information but having just tried to contact them my e-mail has bounced. Perhaps this is another sign of how they view their clients. Rouz

We really recommend this place. 1. Location- 3 minutes from the Garre (straight road down), stone's throw from luxury shopping at the Croisette and stone's throw from Rue d Antibes with the more high street brands. Monoprix and Carrefour all a short walk away. 2. Service - we were upgraded to a better room upon availability so we got the 8th floor, very friendly and efficient check in, and for any requests and queries. Chocolates at turndown. 3. Room- refurbished, spacious and new with a good size balcony. It had a kettle and mugs which was important for us. 4. Free wifi (we were initially worries about this as some reviews indicated it wasnt free- it is free though there were options to pay if you wanted to upgrade the connection which we didnt find necessary. Things which may be a negative for others though we were not bothered by. 1. No pool in the property 2. We didnt get a seaview room but we didn't expect to given that we chose the cheapest available room- our view was of buildings but it wasnt an eyesore. 3. Access to private beach cost 29euros per person but we just went to the public beach which was literally across the street. All in all we were happy and satisfied - never been to Cannes so it was a great introduction and we would definitely recommend it

Spent five nights here and can honestly say it was one of the best hotel stays I have had - everything was all you could ask for and more. Room had everything I needed - ginormous bath, lovely waterfall shower, big fluffy towels, bathrobes and slippers, all complete with beautiful, comfy bed, lots of space, plugs and a great balcony overlooking the mountains and old buildings. Really central location too - lots to see and do and the hotel seems to sit right in the centre of it all. The best bit was the food - breakfast was simply the best I have ever had - the most choice for all possible options, amazing coffee, and everything I tried (and I tried a lot!) was delicious and really felt extra special. Would highly recommend the chef's own 'Pudding Morgane' in particular. Service was also exceptional, as was the hotel look and feel. Room and location was quiet - there is of course some noise from various vehicles but nothing that disturbed me. Would highly recommend and would stay again if visiting the area.
