We've stayed in the Splendid 4 or 5 times, and always enjoyed it. If you're looking for a chain hotel or a fancy Kimpton-type experience, the Splendid is not for you. It is a traditional European, family-run, homey place, a little behind the times - the movie stars in the framed pictures outside our room were Patrick Swayze and Andie McDowell - but very clean, very welcoming, and very well-located. The view of Cannes is lovely, and it's close to the Marché de Forville, a fantastic outdoor market where we purchased 2-3 of our meals each day...fresh pastas, wonderful fruits and vegetables, great local cheeses. I recommend a room with a kitchenette, although you will have to wash the dishes yourself. We love the Splendid and will be back.
