Stayed at the Hotel Tropico in May for a 3 night solo business trip. I reserved a double room on the web for 80 Euros per night. It was excellent for what I needed.
I turned up late at night without a toothbrush and explained the problem in rough French to the owner's wife who hunted around and produced a travel pack brush. Kind and welcoming.
Stairs no lift to the top floor room where the bed was brand new - said the owner the following morning. It was firm and comfortable. Air conditioning for when too hot, also window with shutter for blocking daylight heat. Bathroom absolutely fine, clean, shower and everything working properly and well with clean towells, soap and everything right.
Only reservation is that the walls are thin and so I could hear quite a lot of details from the neighbour - but only the immediate neighbour.
There's a very small TV in the room but it's pretty badly served as it shows only 3 channels and nothing international or fun.
Furnishing is basic but clean and fine.
Cleaning lady friendly, the owner and his wife kind. In addition to the toothbrush they allowed me to print out some documents without charge at the reception computer.
Didn't have the breakfast and the WIFI was fine but worked best in a particular part of the room.
The hotel is fabulously located for the coastal bus (1 minute away) and is also five minutes walk from the train station and the seafront.
Juan-les-Pins has charm. Late at night all the young congregate in the nearby (ten minutes walk) town square with four discos, several bars and restaurants and two identical panino stands with tribal loyalties from their customers. They shut at 3am on weekdays and 6am on Saturday night/Sunday morning.
On the left is North African Muslim French serving panini with slightly more detailed taste - probably the basil oil. On the right is straight up French serving exactly the same but slightly less interesting to my taste. But a panino is a panino really so basically it depends on which crowd you prefer.
But either way it's a ten minute walk home with a late night key to get in the front door. And if the panino wasn't enough there's a basic vending machine in the corridor selling soft drinks and chocolate bars.
The hotel room was not a place to hang around in but was perfect for my needs.
