“Website vs reality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

When i booked this hotel, i checked the website as well. It looked amazing. In reality, i checked in for two nights into their fourth floor (Europe if not mistaken) room only to find a cheap decoration.

Their entrance restaurant etc. dont work well. Even for bfast we were a few people.. But i couldnt make it to the pool so i cant comment.

Their location is excellent so is their beach including service at the beach.

The only good thing with this hotel is the location and free wifi, apart from that I don't see any reasons to stay in this hotel. The service is really bad, or it actually doesn't exist at all. So don't expect to get much help from the staff.

I would not recommend anyone to stay in this hotel and I will definitely not stay there again.

I know this hotel from a long time now this I grew up in Cannes. I used to spend weekends by their private beach and sometimes going to their parties.
Actually living abroad and attending a wedding, I decided to spend 4 days at the 3.14 and I have to admit I was very disappointed.

The service is really bad since it doesn’t exist. During the check-in the receptionist told us we were very lucky because our room is one of the best and asked us how come we manage to book this room in particular. So we were very excited to discover our supposed to be fabulous room. The receptionist told us the number of our room and no one even ask if we needed some help to carry our luggage to the room. We asked if there was a parking for our car and they told us it was 50 Euros for a day! At this price I supposed the cars are sleeping in a suite… So we decided to keep our car in the street and we took the elevator to go to our room. The doors opened at the European floor and we had the impression to land in a cheap brothel. There was nearly no lightening and the walls were in a questionable red velvet lining. Afterwards we enter to our apartment.
The room was small and dirty and very cheap for the price of a night. The only thing ok was the bathroom with the flip flops design with the colors of the hotel.
Since it was very late and after a long drive I was looking for a bottle of water and never found a complimentary one. Being used to 4 or 5* hotels it’s the 1st time I arrived in a hotel where you don’t find at least a bottle of water in your room. Even in 3* hotels you can have great service. Then we wanted to check our emails and realized they did not give us the password for the Wi-Fi. So we asked them to bring us the password to the room which they did but then we couldn’t log with the same password with 2 devices… Afterwards it was time to sleep and I have to mention that the pillows were dirty and stained.

The day after it was the wedding day but since it did not start until the end of the afternoon we had time to go enjoy the beach which is the only asset of the hotel. But do I have to mention that being a client of the hotel and paying 400 Euros per night a room you have to pay full price to lay on a deckchair? But the very positive thing is the beach restaurant. I had kept a very good souvenir of it and I was not disappointed. Everything was very fresh and tasty. But if you want to spend a day by the beach and eat a little something at the restaurant you have to spend at least 150/200 Euros for 2.

After 4 nights it was time to leave and we went to the desk for the check-out which was just a mess. There was only one girl in charge and a lot of people leaving the hotel. The customers in front of us were very angry because there was a problem with their bill so we had to wait like 30 minutes to eventually do our check-out (and their problem was not resolved…) When it was finally our turn, the neglected girl (I have to admit the staff really fits in the setting…) didn’t ask us how our stay was and never said thank you.

To conclude I do not recommend this hotel. Ok the location is good but there are a lot of better hotels in the neighborhood! But if you can afford it don’t hesitate to spend a day at their beach.

One of the worst 4 star hotels we've ever been to. It is on a level of a 2 or 3 stars. Not even close to 4, the minimum star hotels we stay at.It is way overpriced.
Pictures on internet are extremely photo-shopped. Our room was old and not maintained. Bed mattress was like from the 80's type, with springs. Very uncomfortable. The idea of the rooms is great, but the furniture, bed covers, pillows, wall decorations, are were very old (like from the 70's or 80's). We were so lucky to spend only one night there.
There is no sound proof at all. You can hear everyone around you, even through the windows, the people in the next door building. We had a very poor night!
Hotel walls are dirty, especially around the edges. It looks like it is not maintained since it was built.
Service at the reception was ok'ish. I guess we were lucky that there was no one in front of us. But they are laid back and not in a hurry or eager to help.
No fitness center either.
The only good thing I would say is a location and the roof top. Roof top was very nice. Cute little restaurant and pool. Great view. Buna and chef Dino, were excellent.
Would not recommend to anyone, and will never return to that hotel.

The staff has absolutely no idea what service means! You get downgraded, not being listened to and above all they lie about things they promised.... They rooms are okay'ish. The classics are small, the premium rooms are better in size. The pool on the roof is great and gives a superb view!
But looking at the price-service-room; there are better hotels in the city!

Room Tip: Premium rooms with king beds are better then the classic, but the staff won't honour your reques...

Definitely a hotel with a personality where no night is like the other.
Regardless if you are working or sightseeing, this is the perfect hotel.
Perfect location as well, a block from the Cannes Festival, beach and the main street with the most high end shops and restaurants.
During the Festivals it is perfect if your goal is business meetings or relaxing in the spa at the top.
Excellent service, was far above my expectations. Of course I hope to return in the coming years.
