Possibly overpriced owing to Cannes proximity. For the overall price, you're better off renting a villa. Anyway, bienvenue a Pierre & Vacances. Here we go...
INCLUDED IN THE PRICE:
Rude & surly front desk staff (welcome to France)
Make your own beds upon arrival
Strip your own beds upon check-out
Meagre playground (1 tiny seesaw, 2 playhouses) which is not floodlit
Large but unsupervised swimming pool
2 ping pong tables
Themed shows nightly (shockingly amateur quality)
Bar closes at 11 p.m. sharp regardless of the number of clients present
Loud techno or themed music until midnight (the only 2 bedroom appartments are the closest to the noise)
800 m walk to crowded PUBLIC beach
NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE:
Guaranteed parking space EUR 40.-/week
Safe Key EUR 20.-/week (non refundable)
WiFi access EUR 10.- to 20.-/week
Air conditioning unit EUR 80.-/week (through 3rd party supplier)
Kids' activities EUR 20.-/session/child or EUR 150.-/child/all week
Breakfast EUR 11.-/meal
Uninspiring & meagre lunch/dinner buffet EUR 27.-/meal
Fresh mid-week towels EUR 9.-/set
On the whole quite a shocking low-end non-inclusive resort, run by the french who do not seem to pay attention to the small details;
The bar had no draft beer on the first night (Saturday), then no beer at all (Sunday), bar is restocked on Fridays only!
The waiters are in no hurry to restock the food buffet.
Changeover cleaning crew started at 5h45 a.m. on morning of departure, merci beaucoup!
It is best treated as rented accommodation, and to either eat out or do your own cooking (there is a giant supermarket within short driving distance).
It is a shame that although some staff are friendly, none have received any training in customer relations!
We have heard that Pierre & Vacances are in poor financial condition and that their resorts are being purchased one by one by a russian...
Adieu, Pierre & Vacances. Never again!
