Located in a picturesque setting on a small bay east of Nice, the hotel is a great base for day trips all along the Côte d'Azur by car or train. The hotel sits on the waterfront near excellent restaurants some of which feature live entertainment. The sidewalk dining is great for people watching and enjoying the Mediterranean character of the area. Breakfasting or watching evening pyrotechnics from your room balcony are unforgettable experiences in this fine hotel. The staff are impressive in both helpfulness and friendliness. Valet parking is available at a flat daily rate but time-based public parking is only steps from the hotel. We used the latter option and found that it was less expensive overall.
