David & I stayed in this truly amazing hotel for a long weekend as a treat. To say that it is stunning is an understatement. We discovered in hindsight that some fairly big names have previously stayed here. Our stay was extra-exciting as it was the run-up to Cannes festival when The Great Gatsby was to be premiered.

Stayed four nights. Yes, the rooms are on the small side but the staff's willingness to serve and professionalism is beyond belief. The food quality is excellent. La Passagere should be rated two Michelin stars.

We had another lovely stay at the Belles Rives - it is a truly stunning hotel. It has one of the best locations of all hotels on the Cote d'Azur in terms of views, accessibility to the sea and wonderful food and service. Like all hotels on the Cote d'Azur in August, it is not cheap! However, I would in... More

We had high expectations for this hotel, but the only thing it left us wanting to come back for was the fantastic view. The rooms are small - even for Europe standards considering the price. We had a gorgeous view from both of our rooms, but the balcony is so small there is no room for chairs to allow you... More

I have been coming to the Belles Rives with my family for almost a decade. I've had some amazing days and nights in the hotel and its restaurants. I'm sad to say, on this trip, I've awoken to realise many facets of the hotel are 'Emperors New Clothes'. For instance what I took for the charming lido, is in fact... More
