Good value hotel - but bring a car & GPS!
Posted Oct 2, 2012
I read through the review of this hotel, here and on TripAdvisor, before booking. There were quite a few negative ones, most of which centered around the location, and the issues getting into Nice. I took these into consideration, and still booked here based on the price - which was very good for the region.
This was a nice hotel, great for my wife, my 13 month old son, and myself. We liked the location, with nice views, and the grounds, with a playground, a nice pool and restaurant and lots of other activities (sports, spa, etc.) The hotel was just fine and met all of our expectations. My main suggestion - don't stay here unless you have access to a car! If you have a car, the hotel is actually quite a nice base for exploring the region.
We stayed here in September, and spent one day each in Nice, Cannes and Antibes. It was pretty easy to get to each. The hotel itself it about 20 minutes, all uphill and on narrow and windy roads, from the Nice airport. If you're comfortable driving on narrow European roads, you'll be fine - if not, this may not be the best place for you.
The restaurant was very nice. We had breakfast here each morning - 12 Euro was very reasonable for what you got. The dinner was also excellent, and again a good value at about 25 Euro for a 3 course menu. We liked the location overlooking the pool.
Overall this hotel was good value and I would recommend it as a base for visiting the region and enjoying some sports.
