Stayed a week with the family and thoroughly enjoyed it. There's plenty of parking places, friendly staff, lovely pool and good food. It's set up on the hills north of Antibes - approximately a seven mile drive. It's sizable enough to have decent amenities but not too big to feel swamped. For us, it was just right with a bit...

First of all I do not recommend this hotel, especially not for families with children. It is in the middle of nowhere, ovepriced and not worthy 4 stars. - The rooms are small, almost tiny (we're a family of 2 adult and 2 children). - Doors squeeking loudly and fastens in the floor (very hard to open, not possible for...

We stayed 3 nights visiting Nice, Cannes and surrounding areas. The hotel is located in a quiet area. The room was good in size and comfortable. The breakfast and pool were good. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

Recently had two separate stays at the Novotel Sophia Antipolis while travelling on Business. The location is good in Sophia Antipolis - as good as a location in Sophia can be. It's pretty far from everything, so you definitely need a car. But with a car you reach all offices in the area within minutes and you can of course... More

The hotel is situated in a quiet and pleasant setting, it has a bar, a restaurant and a nice terrace and pool area, rooms are O.K. and well looked after but they are nothing fantastic, and upstairs there is wood chip wall paper everywhere! I would agree its a little bit too far out of the way, and with no... More

Sophia Antipolis is an area of high tech industry, located in a wooded area above Antibes, so not an obvious place to pick for a holiday hotel. The businesses are generally low rise offices well spaced out amongst the trees. The advantage is that the hotels offer a reasonably priced alternative to staying in Antibes or Juan les Pins. At...

The hotel is generally fine: a little out of the way perhaps but Sophia Antipolis itself a bit remote. It had several good points: room was good, and well-sized, breakfast was ample and varied, wifi signal (even for the complimentary version) was strong and speed was OK, restaurant is nice and not really overpriced. Reception staff were helpful and in... More

We stayed there this August for 2 nights with 3 kids. Very difficult to find, event with GPS (in fact, we had even several!). Once in the place, you really have the feeling that the hotel is for business and sports, with a huge tennis domain. The main swimming pool has event the shape of a tennis racket. Rooms are... More

We hadn't intended to go away until later in the year but got a great hotel and flight package last minute. The hotel is located in a good forest location, away from the coast, but as others say, if you have a car there are some fabulous places to drive to, and some really good drives to get there. The...
