We stayed at Hotel Martinez 5 days in the beginning of this Easter. We left today, so I write this when I have it fresh in my memory. The hotel was in a middle of a renovation which led into some disadvantages. We did not know that when we booked. We did not book through the hotel, they would have told us if we did that. One of the reason we booked here was the nice swimming pool area, but they have now taken away the swimmingpool. Anyway, we had a great time at the hotel. The rooms are brand new and have a high quality. We had connected rooms because of the children(a junior suite and a premium room). We had not ordered a junior suite but got it when we arrived. The staff at the hotel are just fantastic. They helped us with whatever we needed, and were so quick and patient with all our changes in plans. We will recommend using the consierge service, their services had a very high level. The breakfast was nice, but if I could say something it has to be that I missed fresh berries and a larger selection of cutted fruit. For us who are not into bread and pastries, cutted fresh fruit are so nice for breakfast and I am use to a large selection of this when staying at 5 stars hotels. I will really recommend staying at this hotel, and it will be high up on our list when we are going back to Cannes next Easter. The disadvantage is the missing swimmingpool but the great plus is the rooms and the staff which made us feel really welcomed all the time !

As I was heavily pregnant we didn’t want to travel far, but wanted sun and sea and luxury. The Martinez fitted all the requirements and we were not disappointed. The hotel is stunning and totally iconic. We were upgraded to a partial Sea view room which was newly refurbished. I had emailed in advanced to request an upgrade as it was my partners birthday and our baby moon. The room was one of the finest I’ve seen, it was beautiful!! It was so homely with white being the dominant colour and fine pieces of art decor! The mini walk in wardrobe was divine and the white marble bathroom was mesmerising! There was mood lighting in the room which was so relaxing! The turn down service was great, they went the extra mile than the normal water by bed and curtains closed. The room service menu was expensive 44 Euro’s for a club sandwich which was nothing special. The signature chocolate cake was the best we have ever tasted and worth it! The hotel itself is chic, modern and very welcoming. The staff at reception and concierge are lovely. They gave a beautiful du point teddy for baby! We dined in the famous palm d’or and one word exceptional! It was my partners birthday and I had requested ahead of time for a birthday cake. We have dined in many Michaelin star restaurants and this was one of the best. If you stay at the Martinez you have to dine at the restaurant. The pool was very warm which was lovely as the temperature in October was in early 20s. It was not busy and I can imagine in the summer it would be very hard to move around the pool As space is limited. The buffet breakfast was quite basic and for 40 Euro’s each very expensive, you can not have anything else from the menu. I wish we had booked a bed and breakfast rate as would of been cheaper. The location is amazing just across from the hotels own private beach. I felt like I was in the carribean. Would I return, 100%. It was a vacation I will not forget and would want to repeat. Many VIPs walk through the doors of this hotel and some were there when we stayed, but we are all treated the same which I loved. The staff are a credit to the hotel!!

Went for Easter so not too many people around, hotel is perfectly located, great, helpful and friendly staff and the pool area is perfect. Try the poolside restaurant for lunch, good selection and great location

The famous hotel Martinez in Cannes! If you are in Cannes, this is the place to stay and for the seen to be seen. Attentive service, excellent food and drinks.Great music in the evenings. Rooms were clean and stylish. Saw a few A listers whilst staying here also.

I can’t think of a better hotel to stay during Cannes film festival! Amazing service, great staff and incredible cocktails! Add the star studded hallway and Limosines full of movie stars making their way into their hotelroom: just lovely!

Few palaces on the croisette, but the style art deco of the martinez is the best. Choose if you can the sea view, the rooms are the bigger ones on the croisette, really good refurbished. Service is good, location, pool, beach... I recommend!

Perfect service, the bests views of Cannes, incredible and luxury comfort. They will arrange everything you need to give you the best experience. The beach is a must, and the full breakfast is incredible too.

I am a Travel TV host and journalist. In September I stayed at this property. It is currently going through a renovation but when it is finished it will be amazing. The place is so elegant and yet charming at the same time. The concierge staff is super helpful. The rooms large and comfy. The front desk staff friendly and accommodating. Most especially the on-property restaurant, Le Palme d'or, is the stunning. Helmed by Executive Chef Christian Sinicropi, he is a masterful artist. The food that comes out of his kitchen is delicious and beautiful. Each dish is has a story. Even the plates he serves the food on has a story as each our designed and crafted by he and his wife. Of course every great hotel has a great leader and General Manager, Alessandro Cresta, IS that man. Thank you for making my stay amazing!! and thank you Marie Claire Boudad for everything!!!

We normally stay in high-end hotels and while I would not rate this as "high-end" it was a nice hotel and the rooms were above "average." Our room had a very large terrace with a "side" view of the ocean/beach...which was beautiful and relaxing. We ate at both the hotel restaurant and ordered room service...both were "okay." Service was very good...food was okay. However, the concierge recommended a "local" bistro for dinner one evening, which was a 3 block walk from the hotel, and the food & ambiance were fantastic...top notch! The concierge was extremely helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is fantastic, as you are within walking distance of just about everything (shops, restaurants, marina, beach) on Cannes Cote d'Azure. You may get complimentary bikes from the hotel to take a leisurely bike ride along the beach (highly recommend). Be sure to ride out the road of the marina to see the unbelievable yachts! Several were 3-stories high and the size of 3 houses. The shopping is something else...every high-end designer and store. Definitely a central location and a cosmopolitan vibe. It's much more casual than Paris and we did not feel the need to be as dressed up during the day nor in the evening for dinner. One important word of advice...while the roads in Cannes are relatively easy to navigate and wide enough for cars, that is not the case for the quaint and charming nearby ocean-side towns you will certainly want to visit! We rented a car and that was a HUGE, extremely stressful mistake....Our advice would be to rent a luxury car (available at the hotel) by the day...or better, take Uber or best of all get a DRIVER to take you around and from town to town. We were lost a lot and while we eventually found our intended destinations, after 2 days we were more stressed from driving than relaxed from being on the French Riviera. It's definitely stressful to be on incredibly narrow streets, with no street signs, limited access to accurate GPS and, oh yeah, in a part of the country where the signs are not necessarily in English...unlike Paris, not everyone necessarily speaks your language....however, all were still extremely friendly and helpful.

This review is for my third stay at this property and I can now safely say that stay here, is getting better by the year. First, the best part....Refurbished rooms are a delight. They are also quite romantic, which is a strong reminder of the legend of Martinez. Sadly, the not so good parts far outweigh the singular good part above. We were given the worst room down the corridor in the name of free upgrade. There was a loud and super annoying industrial noise due to the location of the room, wi-fi speed was highly disappointing and the lights went out in the room multiple times at night causing scary and dangerous pitch darkness for uncomfortably long minutes. The breakfast experience was worse with only a single chef catering to the eggs order. Every egg dish was wrongly made and several guests returned them coz it arrived too late. Maybe my expectations are too high from this place coz of the brand name or maybe I compare French hospitality with Asian...either case, I really hope to see Martinez buckling up soon.
