La Côte d'Azur is clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. I had a great view of the ocean from the seating room and all the bedrooms. I also enjoyed a daily walk to the ocean. The place was nice. For people with small children request a ground floor apartment that have a garden. The resort children play area is... More

We stayed for 7 nights and did not want to leave. The units are spacious, modern, well-maintained and well-equipped. The best is the patios with uninterrupted views of Lucien Beach, which is a blue flag beach. The staff are so friendly. Courteous and well-trained. A dream for holiday-makers. The coffee shop was the only let-down. The food quality and ambience... More

We spent four nights in this property and loved every moment. Unlike so many time share properties the second bedroom is spacious and comfortable. Clever design means that both bedrooms and the lounge opens onto the glorious seafaring balcony. Beds are super comfortable and the high quality linen endures great comfort. The unit is equipped with everything needed to ensure... More

Beautiful resort with stunning views. wanted a relaxing weekend so did not use the amenities. Room was clean and spacious. Excellent security and good cleaning staff. Only drawback was the pillows , wife could not sleep with them. Maybe take your own if you not comfortable with other pillows. Overall highly recommended.

We recently spent a weekend here. Had a ground floor unit but fortunately could still see the sea. Very attentive management. Lovely inexpensive coffee shop so one could eat out without breaking the bank! Good setting - right on the beach. It would be nice to have a fan in the bedroom as it was quite warm with the door...
