I arrived at La Réserve de Beaulieu for the last four days of a 8-day trip to the Côte d'Azur with my mum and felt comfortable from the moment our car entered the beautifully landscaped driveway until the end of our stay. We had booked into the garden pavilion because of its special layout but couldn't resist to accept the seaview deluxe room offered to us as an upgrade.
It is a very elegant and old-world grand hotel, but at the same time it feels very intimate and cozy and not stiff or arrogant at all. Also, the hard-ware is top-notch and state-of-the art, considering the age and history of the place. Nothing looks worn or even used (in contrast to Negresco or Hotel de Paris), e.g. there is good Wifi-connection throughout the hotel and a BOSE-sound-device in every room.
The staff is superb, introducing themselves by their names and always greeting and smiling! One of the highlights is the saltwater swimming pool by the sea which is open 24/7. Going for a swim at midnight in the emerald-colour pool and seeing the lights of St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and Eze in the distance is just indescribable!!! Same applies to the breakfast served with a view of the Mediterranean and Cap Ferrat... Another highlight of our stay was the dinner at the gourmet 1-Michelin-star restaurant. Yes, it's not a bargain, but we did not regret it for a second: The fare is classical French haute cuisine with a twist, beautifully served by a team that performed perfectly like an orchestra and took care of every little detail! And it did not feel stiff at all as the staff members were charming and witty throughout the dinner and also had a chat with us here and there. Due to the intimate setting it was even possible to get in touch with other guests and to have some most interesting conversations!
Out of the grand hotels we have stayed at on this trip - including the magnificent Hotel Hermitage in Monte-Carlo and iconic Le Negresco in Nice - this was by far our favourite hotel!
