Résidence Pierre & Vacances Premium Port-Prestige4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Visited here last week. Whilst I would suggest the title ‘Premium’ may give some travellers a false sense of expectation, our expectations were damped by prior reviews and so we were pleasantly surprised albeit it was by no means premium. The building is reminiscent of a bygone 1950’s era and whilst a little tired as other reviews note, it was by no means shabby or dirty. It blends more with the ambiance of the Riviera in its hay-day. We had a standard room for 6. That comprised a double bedroom, balcony over looking the port,second bedroom with bunk beds and a pull out double bed in the lounge. There were 2 bathrooms (one with a bath the other with a shower but only 1 toilet). The lounge dinner kitchen was spacious but has no oven. Just a 4ring hob and microwave. Cooking space is limited. Plenty of towels so no need to bring swim towels albeit might be handy for the beaches. Swimming pool was very cold (so the kids told me!) and therefore very quiet. When you have a family eating out can be expensive or at least as much as it is here in the uk. €15-€25 for a main course. You probably would be short of €80 for a meal for 4. There are plenty of supermarkets nearby as well as a vast range of restaurants even in mid October. The whole area is amazing. We would highly recommend walking around the Cap D’Antibes and visiting the beaches nearby. The train station is just up the road from the accommodation (10min walk) and a return ticket to Cannes for 4 people was about €30. I would recommend using the train as the roads are still quite busy this time of the year and the car parks are about €10 for the day anyway. One place really worth the drive is St Paul De Vence. It’s about to 30 mins drive NW. Vence itself is also very nice but not as exclusive as St Paul. Parking is good this time of year at both places. On the way back to Antibes from Vence you pass a huge modern shopping centre on the right if you need a bit of retail therapy. Everything from Prada to Primark (we certainly the former). The market in the old town of Antibes is excellent. It changes throughout the day from a food to arts market. You can also buy fresh caught fish from the port just need the old town entrance. The big wheel at the fair on the front was €5 per person. A few other things not very well noted on the P&V website. There is a local tourism tax. I think it was about €10 per adult. The only onsite parking is the undercover parking for €60 - easy to use and very secure. Good luck if you want to find street parking. It was crammed even at this time of year and French parking means hit the bumpers till you get in! The internet is not great even with the extra €25 paid. You can get access to your accommodation on arriving late in the evening. We arrived about 11:30pm by the time we picked up our hire car etc. Just knock and the concierge will let you in. Best to park in the car park opposite near the harbour first - won’t cost you anything if you are under about 30mins, wander up, get your keys, then bring you car round and park up underneath, where you can take your cases in a lift up to you accommodation - easy. The concierge will also give you access to the car park and show you where to go.
After reading some of the less than favourable reviews about Pierre et Vacances, Antibes we arrived with some trepidation as to what we would find. We shouldn't have worried! The staff on reception were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was very clean. A bit tatty in places & bizarrely one of the bedroom curtains was about 8 inches longer than the other! The bed was very comfortable with nice thick cotton bedding. Towels, bath robes and small toiletries were provided. The balcony view wasn't great with one side looking over the street and a pool side view from the other. The pools, pool area and sun loungers were great, lovely and clean with attractive plants and palm trees dotted around. The kitchen would have benefited from a few more glasses,plates and cutlery. Best of all, a fantastic position on the edge of the old town, just a short stroll from the wonderful harbour and great restaurants! Value for money - pretty good for the centre of Antibes with a pool on site. Word of warning - parking charge 60 Euros for a week.
This was our third time to stay at Port Prestige. This is a well located residence which is run very competently by the P&V team. The swimming pool complex is an attraction in itself and a short walk across the town square brings you to a public beach with good sea swimming. The residence itself may need upgrading though it has been painted in the last year and this made a significant difference. We plan to revisit again next year as we like this residence, its location and the town of Antibes
We came back from a week stay here and are missing Antibes already! The apartment was in a perfect location, short distance from the old town, train and bus station (which are great, and good value) and very close to the harbour and a lovely little sandy beach. The apartment was a little dated, but served us well. We were on the first floor in the yellow block, had a low level view of the pool. The split level pool was good and my young children enjoyed the tiny paddling pool. Being in the center of the high blocks of apartment in the complex, the pool didn't see the sun until about 11.30am. Not a major problem. We didn't arrive until after 8pm and we were advised to let them know as the reception desk would be closed. The security man was their on our arrival and checked us in with no problems. Reception staff were great, the young lady in particular (sorry can't remember her name!) was brilliant and very helpful! Please pass on our thanks to her (we were the Sicilian family living in the UK! :) One of the balcony door locks was broken and maintenance were called and promptly fixed it. There's a safe in the room but you have to pay about €20 for this. The wifi was a little ropey at times but can't complain too much. Overall a great stay and would recommend to others.
Family of 4, with 2 boys, age 8 and 12, stayed at the P&V-Port Prestige for 14 days from 8th - 22nd of July 2017. The appartment hotel is devided into several buildings 4 levels high. Few apartments have roof terrasse. The hotel is centeret around the 2 pools. An upper pool and lower pool. The upper pool was closed on our second 2 of our visit, and was not fixed during our stay. These makes the pool a bit busy. Overall the place is small but nice with beatiful garden with a lot of trees. It is worn however functional. There are not any restaurants, however a vending machine. Also there are Washing machine and dryer on the premises. The staff at the hotel do their job, however you will not be overwelthmed with their focus on your well-being. We afsked twice to be moved to an better appartment, with nor result nor follow-up. (We stayed In the "grey" building) All the various buildings at the hotel is devided into colours.) The best thing you can say about the PV-port prestige is its location. It is very close to the old town center (400 meters). The old town is fantastic with its small streets, stores, shops, markets. Tip: - Ask for an appartment as high as possible, as it gives you a better view (or just a view) of the pool area. - There is a carrafour super market some 300 meters from the hotel, opens from 8 in the morning and has fresh morning bread. - There are 3 sand-beaches you can choose from. 1 close to the hotel, which is the smallest, and situated close to the harbour. The second closest with you will find and the end of "Boulevard Albert 1er" and the last is at Juan-Les-Pins, which is the best, but furthest away. You could just go to the train-station and take 1 stop and you will be in Juan-Les-Pins. Price is €1,40 per person. The train-station is about 300 meters away from the hotel. - If you are looking for a more party-focused area you should search for a hotel in center "Juan-les-pins". - Around the town square "Place General de Gaulle" you will find the bus station, and basically you will have access to all bus lines from the square. Not all are going by the bus station, however close by. - Take bus line nr. 2, for a trip around the Antibes Cape. You could get of at the stop "Chapelle De La Garoupe". There is a good 10 minutes walk to the top of the hill by road. On the top you will have a fantastic view of both the old Antibes and the new Juan-Les-Pins area. Theres also a little restaurant, which serves simple foods and drinks, but clearly a visit worth. - There is a hop-on-hop-off tour operator from the town square. In my opinion is not worth the Money. - The Picasso museum is a must visit. - You can get from the Antibes train station to cannes in 15 minutters and to Nice in 20 min. - Running routes: Run to the center square, take "Rue de Wilson" down to Juan-Les-Pins and follow the coast to "Golf-de-Juan" and back. On the way you can have a morning dive in the ocean.
Needs to be renovated but comfy beds, working dishwasher, clean, (except for the floor) nice, friendly staff and the location is perfect. The pool was a bit cold for us, but then that was not our priority. Stayed on the first floor with view to the back street and was not disturbed by traffic or anything else. Parking garage was low ceiling but ok spaces. Parking was extremely hard to find so book that!
Great colmplex by yhe port of Antibes. Nice pool area and clean flats with two bedroom. We really enyojed our stay At Pierre and will love to come back again. You had two beaches 10 and 15 minutes walk away. Old part of the city are great to walk around, mingle and eat - drink well. Close to the train station and we went to Cannes and Monaco during our week in France.
Accommodation is brilliantly situated in Antibes. You'll absolutely be in the centre of things. However the accommodation is pretty basic and under par for what we were expecting. In the short the whole place could do with a lick of paint, its rather dated. Our room was on the ground floor. Patio doors lead out to a scruffy garden and a view of the road and some broken fences. Security was pretty lax too we confronted a suspicious couple who were not residents who were going round trying doors. Pool area is ok, but can get busy and we hardly used it. In the end we used the place as a base and to sleep, we spent very little time there. Great location, very average hotel/apt
We love this place gave it a 5 star rating due to the times we have visited and seen it at its best. Sadly the apartments are now a little dated internally and need soft furnishings updated together with interior decoration
We stayed in the hotel for almost 14 days in three different rooms. Location: The hotel is nicely located just next to the harbor and 5 minutes from the old center of Antibes and 5 minutes from the station. Cannot get much better in Antibes. There is a good Carrefour not too far from the Hotel and an Intermarche just round the corner from Place Charles d'G. Good wine is however found at Spar towards Juan les Pins - Club de Sommelier ... offers great quality for money. Best you could ever imagine. Hotel: The hotel is made up of several buildings. They form a square which is basically an oasis of plants and swimming pools. Walking in you get a feeling of tranquility. Room: Do not stay towards the harbor. There is lots of noise and limited sun on the balconies. The room inside the court yard are great. The hotel is a bit worn but it is good quality for money. Restos: Most around are very touristic. Last night we went to the Albert 1er fish resto. This is a must in Antibes. One of the best seafood restaurants in the world - I believe ! WiFi - the WiFi is really bad and very slow. Hence you often have to go on the net of your phone operator ... quite sad actually
