“Spontaneous visit to the bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

My fiancee and I spent the day at the Rado beach, a little walk down and were in need of a cocktail and some music to finish of our last day in Cannes.

We sat at the bar and yes, we waited quite a while to be served which for the price of the cocktails ( 25 euro). The setting is beautiful and the DJ was spinning some tunes so all was forgiven when I had my Mojito and we sat back and watched the sunset.

As the dinner guests started to pour in, the bar had a change of staff, or as we saw with some just a change of uniform. We ordered more drinks and served much quicker and then the band started their first set. Was indeed a great moment with the sunset and the band playing, my fiancee called it very romantic. One bartender asked us how my cocktail was and that it was prepared with completely fresh ingredients, I replied that it was great, indeed one of the best I have tasted.

I forgot to add I was wearing a Singha beer tank top and white board shorts, carrying a small back pack. Never found the bar staff pretentious ( though slow serving at the beginning), we spent a few hours at the bar listening to the band while people ate and enjoyed the moment immensely. The bar staff were great at the end.

Go and enjoy but be prepared to a premium for well made drinks.

“Can you see the sea?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Pretentious, promenade - pay your 30 euros to sit on a bed all day next to thousands of other pretentious people - shoulder to shoulder, breathing in your neighbour's cigarette fumes! What a horrible way to spend your day on a beach! Forget it. Hop on a boat for the islands, take you towel and umbrella, and find a secluded spot for your own picnic - much more enjoyable at a fraction of the prices. Cannes? - non - can't!

“We expected more”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We stayed in Martinez for 3 night. At our 3rd day we had booking to the beach. When we came - we found that we have no any bookings, we were only in waiting list. Then, after 30 minutes speaking they found for us 6 places. Beach was very poor and dirty.
