OK, it's not a last resort hotel, but I couldn't resist the title, because first of all this is pretty far from being a resort. It is a completely average hotel with a swimming pool 50 yards from the beach in Cannes. Does that make it a resort? Didn't think so either. Other than the pool there is nothing else that associates a hotel with the word resort: spa, massage, the whole bit.
It's a decent enough hotel with decent rooms but that's pretty much it. Rooms lack these small fridges which to me are absolutely basic. The sour note, which explains the subtitle of my review, is the way you are treated at breakfast. At the peak of MIPcom season (a media market which I attend for professional reasons) all hotels are booked solid, so there is no excuse for hotels for not planning ahead and hiring more people. But although the breakfast room is packed, management thinks it is appropriate to have one french old lady (with characteristic desire to please that is the trademark of french employees in average hotels like this) taking care of everything. So what you get is that at nine A.M. there are no more eggs, no more yogurts, no more croissants, nada. And if you complain - even in french - you get ze french hospitality in return. But all in all a decent enough place where you can sleep comfortably, with nice bathrooms, but nothing special. And it's true that it is a bit far from the Croisette. So rent a bike or get a bus schedule.
