“Short stay in IDEAL in August”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

I would recommend this really quiet and clean hotel with friendly and hospitable personnel.
We really enjoyed our stay in this nice place. Morning coffee could have been better ;)

Taking into account the price we paid for this hotel, the experience was amazing. It was like a very comfortable and welcoming home. The service was great and the place was nice and clean. It was very close to the beach also.

I have been coming to this hotel for almost 7 years and just love
it. The hotel is ideal situated only 3-4 minutes to the beach and has a wonderful garden where you can eat your dinner
if you do not want to go to a restaurant.Also each room has a fridge which is great in summer time.
Parking is free in the back of the hotel
The owner Madame Mariejeanne is fantastic to all guests and very nice. She even pick you up from the airport or the railroad station.
The prices are very good.Think about you are almost next to Antibes and Cannes.
I would never go any place else to stay during my vacation

Small hotel run by a lovely lady who spoke no English. Decor very French is style but not very modern. Air con and fridge in room but neither worked. Clean and comfortable though. Couldn't keep mosquitoes out as bathroom had open air filter and no door. Breakfast in garden was a nice touch but a bit overpriced for bread and croissant.

Handy for railway station - 10 minute walk. Juan is a great location to take the train Antibes (only 3 minutes), Cannes, Monaco, Nice all easily accessible.

Small car parking area - it's basicaly a large house with a drive.

We were 3 friends and stayed at Hotel Idéal one week of July. I must say we were a bit worried about the name (you must be French to call your hotel "ideal"!) but we soon let us amazed by the number of bonuses included in the price (we paid about €30/night/pers).

The staff is friendly. In the other hand, every time you come in, you almost "have to" discuss with them for about 5 mins.
The air conditioner was a great point and, thanks to this, we could sleep well every nights even if the temperature outside was about 30°C. However, the pillows were very uncomfortable and made us get neck aches in the middle of the week. Another bad experience made during the night is the insonorisation : you hear absolutely everything that is said/done in the rooms next to yours.
The fridge and small freezer were very appreciated and, thanks to this, we could prepare juicy cocktails and drink white wines at "ideal" temperatures.
The parking is also a nice bonus. It is indeed very small but does it really matters? We could put our car out of it anytime we needed it.
There is a small shadowed garden with tables and chairs where you can picnic and enjoy your fresh drinks.
The beach and a supermarket are at 2 min. The center (casino, bars, restaurants,...) at 10 min.

  • Liked — All the bonuses included in the price
  • Disliked — Anyone hears what you do and you hear everyone
