Fairly average hotel overly priced

Posted Sep 6, 2014
Pros: With the exception of the bed, Junior Suite we had was comfortable and had a nice partial sea view (apparently upgraded...although purchased as so?!)
Cons: Concierge was poor (when actually there!!); not being able to get a coffee until 12pm then finding no one serving was annoying; too conference focused
Location: This area is a great base to explore the Cote D'Azur. Central for Nice/Cannes/Monte Carlo/Grasse...all accessible by train. Affordable fine dining too
My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed Juan Les Pins as a resort however both felt that the AC Ambassadeur failed to live up to the large fee it commands, primarily due to the often lacklustre service of the staff (concierge, chambermaids & bar staff) and the mediocre facilities (sauna which didn't work, very hard mattresses & bar unmanned so unable to get coffee at midday)...not what you would expect for a hotel of this rating/cost. If you are looking to holiday in the Cote D'Azur I would suggest you stay in an apartment or find a villa, as this is such a great area but the hotels appear overpriced on the evidence of our stay and that of those we spoke to.

Expensive but great experience

Posted Jul 23, 2014
Pros: Location, the pool area.
Location: Beach is two minutes walk away, the buzzing 'down town' area of bars and restaurants even closer.
The Ambassadeur is a large and modern business-class hotel, unusual for this resort. It also has an excellent outdoor pool with bar, as well as an indoor pool and small fitness room. Room was excellent. Food OK - NB with so many places to eat outside, the hotel does not expect guests to eat in.

Great hotel in the beach town of Juan-Les-Pins

Posted Jun 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
we stayed here for 1 night as part of a 10 day trip around France. The hotel itself was perfectly nice...a standard Marriott type hotel. Our room was very clean and modern and comfortable and a large-ish room. We did not choose the more expensive room overlooking the pool because we didnt think there was really any point. The hotel is a few blocks from the beach so nothing has an ocean view. There was free wifi in the lobby althought it didn't work great but no free wifi in the rooms. The marriott has chairs down on the beach but you have to pay to rent them for the days and its about 25 euro per chair for the day. Don't rent their chairs...walk furthing down the beach to La Douce and rent for 16-18 euro instead. Overall we loved our night in Juan-les-pins and thought this hotel was a great find for the money.

Nowhere near the 5* hotel promised

Posted Jun 13, 2014
Pros: If you want to attend a conference at the conference centre next door then I am sure this would be fine. Otherwise don't bother.
At the end of a fabulous holiday I decided to treat my family to the ultimate luxury - a 5* hotel experience in Antibes. It started badly. When we opened the mini bar there was an overpowering stench of brie that the previous guest had left from many days earlier - the staff came and removed it, but the smell lingered for several hours. It was then that all the things that clearly made this NOT a 5* hotel started to come into focus - there was cheap formica on the floor, the furniture was slightly shabby, there was no dressing gown / robe. It was hardly a 4* - maybe just a 3*. But it had it's own beach so it could't be so bad - we walked down there, but it was closed. The next day we decided to visit the luxury pool - but it was being cleaned (at 9am) so we decided to pop off to the beach - it must be open, we concluded. It was then that we were told that the 'private beach' actually cost €15 per person - we were expected to pay €60 for the four of us to have a quick swim. I was helpfully told that there was a public beach. I knew because I had visited it the evening before: being the only public beach in the area, it was a popular venue for the neighbourhood dogs who, quite reasonably, like to do their business when they encounter sand. The receptionist was a redeeming factor. When I pointed out the hotel's shortcomings, she was genuinely upset and offered free car parking and to extend our checkout. But it was too late. We just wanted to leave.

Dear Charles, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I'm sorry that you had a poor experience especially with the minibar item left from a previous guest and i've forwarded your comments to my team to prevent such a thing to happen again. Regarding the wood floor, All our guest enjoy this type of floor and they find it cleaner than carpet which is harder to maintain. Our pool is cleaned everyday and due to high occupancy we do some heavy cleaning from time to time. To prevent too much noise while our guest sleep, we cannnot do it too early unfortunately but we have an indoor pool also available if need be. Regarding our private beach club with restaurant and bar, we provide a full service sunbed with confortable mattress, ombrela and large towels and life guard service as well. This is why we charge for this service which is thenormal practice in all the private beachs around. Public beach are also available but they have no service available but are free to access. I would be very happy to welcome you back to show you better our nice facilities and I'm sure that you'll have a much better experience. Kind regards, Charles Richez General Manager

Below its rating

Posted Sep 22, 2013
Pros: The staff from desk to car jockey are excellent. The concierge even gave me a lift to my French bank branch. He thought it might be shut otherwise !
Cons: The excessive charges
Location: Central and Juan is always lively at night, with a casino, restaurants and late shopping. It also has excellent and free,extensive, public beaches
This hotel is 5 star merely because it has the facilities required by the French official body. It bears no comparison with other 5 star hotels in Juan. It is scandalous that it has no free wifi in the rooms, in this day and age. It also charges for everything else it can, and not at good rates for guests. If you are looking for 5 star, go to the Belles Rives, the Hotel du Cap or the Juana instead. I have been going to Juan for over forty years, and would not pick this as my hotel of choice. The junior staff are keen and very helpful but the air is that Marriott have misjudged their market in this area and what they can get away with elsewhere is not suited to it.
