Having been in Monaco for the Grand Prix I wanted a bit of relaxing downtime with my parents and having originally been booked in Nice there was an issue and the three of us were offered this hotel, which although I wasn't sure abuot it as I love the French mainland it was an absolute delight. Although there was an issue with our room on arrival they were more than accommodating and third time lucky we got a great room (sounds like we were 'high maintenance' but I promise you, we weren't!) The room we got was super-spacious and had a balcony (smaller than the original room offered but more sun and a view of both the sea and the pool). There's a private beach with waiter service for the hotel and a great pool and seating area away from the pool for all guests. We love our food and drink and ate at different places each night in Monaco but the food here was so good on the first night we ate here every night. We always enjoyed something different and it was the best food. It's not cheap but, given that Cap Ferrat is the 3rd most expensive place to live in the world (at the time, anyway) we were fully prepared and ultimately it was in no way extortionate. The waiting staff were great - the head waiter was superb and they made every meal a pleasure - even better was that whilst we were eating the room staff did a great turn-down service. The only comment I would make is if you do go here there are large windows in the bathroom and they're not one-way so make sure you draw the blinds! This isn't a hotel with a huge lobby that's impersonal; it gives the impression of being small and bijoux without any pretence - I love France and therefor would go back here in the blink of an eye as I truly loved it.
