If you need a hotel that has great access and has beautiful views down to the coast and only 30 minutes from Nice airport then La Vague de Saint Paul is for you. Its cuisine is excellent and the staff are super helpful and well trained. Its in expensive and has much offer, tennis, boules, a beautiful garden and location is super easy as well.
the hotel is very pleasant and the restaurant is really top! We went to several 1 and 2 michelin star restaurants recently and this one certainly deserves 1 michelin star, we really enjoyed the brilliant food combined with very well chosen wines!
We stayed here for the night before our flight from Nice Airport. Only a 20 minute drive but a haven on peace in the woods close to St Paul. A very warm welcome from the staff and a well appointed room with a view of the garden made for a very pleasant stay unlike many of the airport hotels. A very good breakfast. Their half board package was a very good deal which included 3 courses of the a la carte menu. A Bonne addresse.
Booked this hotel for a 9 night stay. We booked a suite to give us extra room. The room was spacious and bright. After unpacking we discovered that the toilet room light was not working, and reported it to the reception staff. We also found our that the air con was not working, so the hotels engineer was being called in too fix it. This was a Sunday. Monday morning we went out early only to find on our return that the engineer did not come in on the Monday as he was asked to come in on the Sunday, so our toilet room light was still not working until Tuesday. We had to ask for an extra toilet paper to be left, a bar of soap for the bath, as both the shower gel, in the shower & soap at the sink were bolted to the wall in a container, so could not be used by the bath.We ran out of tissues and had to ask for another box for the room; used coffee cups were not replaced, neither were the coffee pods, and by day 3 our room had not been hoovered, so we had to ask for it to be done! For some bizarre reason our bathroom hand towels were put in the sink on top of the drain, now that is simply not hygienic in any way. We had 2 large balconies to sit on but to be honest the loungers and chairs were in a terrible state. I have attached a picture to this review. The balcony too was not clean. Whilst having breakfast we noticed the awning shielding us from the sun was in a very poor state too with mould, again pics attached. It is a great shame that the hotel is not up to the standard it is advertised to be; all these little things add up to aggravation on a much needed break. The reception staff did all they could to help us, but to be honest, things like the light & the cleanliness should be part of a daily routine check, and we should have to had to ask for things to be done. To top things off on our last night there, some young men went to the pool at midnight and made a terrible noise & racket, and after a few tries to call to reception we managed to get through to complain about the noise, after all the pool was meant to be shut at that time; we could not have been the only ones disturbed! One good thing though, we ate in the restaurant which was excellent. The restaurant manager was very welcoming. To travel to a hotel where small but important things are amiss is not acceptable, someone there should be checking that when a room is sold, it is sold as it should be, a home from home.…
Gorgeous place a bit remote from the buzzing of the coast, super friendly staff, incredible restaurant and always a pleasure to come to this hotel! I would highly recommend this place for the people who want a bit of a quieter stay, while still minutes away from Saint Paul de Vence as well as the coast. The value for the price (both hotel and restaurant) is second to none!
