“Charming.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

We had a relaxing stay at the hotel. The reception staff were helpful and polite, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. Altjough the pool is on the small side, it was never crowded and was very clean.
Thank you to all the hotel staff for an enjoyable holiday.

A lovely, family run hotel in Old Cannes. A very warm welcome and a great location for restaurants and the beach. We had a lovely room that opened onto the garden. Air conditioning was excellent and the room was comfortable and clean. Pool is quite small, but never overly busy.
There's a washing line so that one can hang wet towels and costumes which is great.
Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: The rooms that open onto the garden are wonderful

Room was small and rather old-fashioned (carpet on the walls!) but the service was very friendly and they have a lovely little pool. I appreciated the air-conditioning at night. Location is great - just a short walk from the beach and tons of restaurants.

Great location in Old Cannes--walking distance to everything you need (15 mins to beach, 5 mins to restaurants, 10 mins to shops).
Very friendly and accomodating staff.
Simple and quaint place. Feels like a Bed and Breakfast.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

My son had previously stayed there twice, so we took that as a good recommend. We had a double room with balcony overlooking the garden. Very attractive decor, the ensuite bath room was sufficient and all was extremely clean. The unexpected delight was to find the bed soft enough, I normally need a Tempur mattress, because of a bad back. We enjoyed the breakfast as well, sitting outside in the garden.
Only down side was no tea making facilities, as I like to drink tea when I wake during the night and first thing in the morning. Each time my husband had to dress and go downstairs and get the night porter to make him a pot.

We stayed just two nights in l'Olivier in June. We had been in Mandelieu at a conference and wanted a break before returning home. This hotel is a real oasis of calm and tranquility in a very bustling and busy Town with masses of shopping (Gallery Lafayette, Chanel and a great new look Monoprix!!) The hotel is perfectly positioned for the beach - We went to the Waikiki beach restaurant/sun beds. Had the most fabulous lunch. The hotel is very near to a really busy street of restaurants for evening meals. The staff couldn't be more helpful. We had a very good breakfast with delicious boiled eggs, croissants etc. Excellent freshly made hot coffee. We had a delightful provencal style room, very comfy bed, and a wonderful sun terrace. If you haven't got beach towels can be bought reasonably in the town. Hotel beach towels are a bit small. There's a little bar which we didn't try. Hope to stay longer next time will definitely be back here.

Room Tip: Didn't see all the rooms but think some have a bigger sun terrace
