“Take the basics!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2011

The apartments are well located in Cagne-ville several kilometres from the beach,but within easy reach of medieval Haut-de-Cagne which is reached by a free 15 minute bus service (no 44) from the town square.
The Renoir house museum and garden is a 15 minute walk away,well worth a visit.
If arriving after Reception is closed,you must advise the management.This part was well organised for us with our room key and pass number instructions held in a safe which we were able to access.
Free parking is offered with reserved space.The downside to our stay was the lack of any consumables in the apartment.You must take with you all domestic cleaning materials along with personal items and all paper requirements for toilet and kitchen use as non is supplied or available at the apartments.
Imagine you are going camping !.Local shops and supermarket are excellent and stock everything you need..
The inventory for the apartment is strictly monitored and checked on departure and it is incumbent on you to
confirm that everything is OK when you arrive as you sign a sheet to this effect and remain liable for any loss or damage.Check everything and note any minor damage to paintwork or you may get a bill for loss or cleaning.This is reasonable provided that all is perfect when you arrive.but the cleaning regime is dependent on the previous occupant and this was not to a good standard for us.

Room Tip: Obtain a room way from building works on adjacent site

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2010

We were allocated a two-room apartment facing a new parking area which was under construction. The construction resulted in dusted and grubby balconies and not a least construction noise from 07:00 in the morning except in the weekends, so you didn't need an alarm clock to get up early in the morning. The noise made it impossible to enjoy the breakfast on the balcony. On day two, we asked the manager if it was possible to get an other apartment with a more silent location. Our query was refused with the argument that we had booked our room late (could be interesting to know for other visitors). It was also mentioned when we arrived that we had re-booked our apartment (which we did as the apartment was reduced in price with 40% discount TWO days after our booking. Who wouldn't do that? However, if there had been different categories like e.g. "facing construction area" and "facing street" to choose among when we booked, then we would had known the conditions. Obviously, we would had taking that into consideration when we re-booked if we knew that the discount was due to construction noise and a bad location in the building).
It is not stated anywhere on the internet (booking.com / expedia.com / other web sites), but cleaning of the apartment at departure is not included in the rate, thus the guest can decide to do the cleaning.
Our apartment was not clean which we pointed out at arrival. The manager went to the room and explained that it was clean from a french point of view and explained that as long as the visible surfaces were clean then it was satisfactory. Dust underneath the beds and similar was what one could expect in France.
The quality of water in the swimming pool was not controlled during day, which resulted in water that was not clear if you wanted to do swímming late afternoon.
All things considered, we cannot recommend this place if you are planning to have a nice vacation in a calm area. Please note that construction of a new apartment building for seniors are in the early phase of construction next to Le Crystal.
Beds are very firm.
