“$300+ for mediocre room!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Can't begin to say what a big disappointment this place was. We stayed for 2 nights and then checked into the Bestwestern Astoria down the street for a better experience.
Here are a few of many reasons why this place is not the place to stay:
1) Not in Antibes! It is in a lower class town 20 minutes away called Juan Le Pins
2). Room was not anything special
3). Breakfast buffet - not as good as other hotels in same class
4) a charge if you want to sit in a pool chair
5) their "private" beach is 2 blocks away and difficult to find - again a big Charge to sit on a chair and there is not a square inch of sand without a chair on ot. Super tiny. Must buy their food and drink. You may not bring in your own. Food was low quality and over priced.
6) bathroom had skimpy toiletries and no cream rinse.
7. We booked it as AC Marriot but there is no exterior sign that says Marriot. Finding it was a bit of a pain.

Room Tip: Make sure to not stay in Juan Le Pins where this hotel is located. Stay in Antibes - nicer beach, r...

Not the least expensive of hotels but good value for money. Very comfortable room, helpful and friendly staff, and an excellent restaurant. My only quibble is that the hotel imposes an additional charge (not disclosed before arrival) both to use its own beach (not far from the hotel and with a good bar/restaurant on site) AND effectively to use the hotel pool - the charge is for use of a sunbed. The hotel management explained that this is to discourage guests from trying to reserve more than one sunbed by putting out towels on them (hm .... I wonder who they could be talking about), but that could be better managed than imposing an additional charge (10 euros per sunbed per half day, or 15 euros per full day)

Room Tip: Worth asking for a poolside view as otherwise the rooms overlook the town ... and in the case of the...

I stayed here in 2011 for a business trip and somehow at that time the pool and surrounding area was all under construction, which made the whole place look quite sad...
The hotel building itself is ok, the rooms are nice with enough light and space. The staff is perfectly friendly. Besides, the location is just great.
Overall, I enjoyed my short stay here. It was good value for the money I paid and I bet now,once the construction work is finished, the place is actually much much nicer.

Ambassadeur has recently been renovated with great result. The rooms are new, clean and stylish but be sure to book a room with view over the pool-area since there is a big construction-site in front of the hotell.
The hotel is great but they charge you for using the pool-area wich for me is totally unacceptable and thats why I am keeping my rate low for this place.

We chose this hotel as it had recently been renovated and is in a good location. We took the pool view room as we had heard that room on the other side of the hotel were prone to noise from the new shopping centre they are building in front of the hotel.

The rooms were recently renovated but the bathroom was very small. Other than that it was good, clean and comfortable.

The concierge seemed to be running around like headless chickens and were generally disorganised.

Great location, friendly helpful staff. Excellent a/c. Newly renovated. Bathrooms are a little small with shower in tub but good water pressure. Beach a few short blocks away with friendly attentive staff and nice restaurant. Be aware of building site right next door, work starts early in morning even on weekends. Very good value.
