PV is a fabulous resort for families, especially those with small children, although teenagers seem to love it as well. We stayed in the hotel (as opposed to staying in the apartments, which dominate the complex and seem very nice), which was super convenient and air conditioned.
This is somewhat of a vacation factory, so this is not for romantic sightseeing in Provence, although one can easily take day trips to do so.
If you don't have a car, be prepared to pay for taxis to Saint Rafael (around 30 euros) so that you can take day trips to Cannes (< 30 minutes by train) or St. Tropez (60 minutes by ferry).
The restaurants are all excellent and the pools a lot of fun, two of which have water slides and one of which has an hourly wave machine.
It is important to note that our children speak French fluently, which allowed us to take advantage of the day camps and other activities, that may be more of a problem for children that do not speak French. However, a lot of the staff (and everyone at the restaurants and hotel front desk) speak English.
The hotel staff was terrific, especially Tatayana, who went beyond the call to help us with travel arrangements, getting adjoining rooms and just making us feel at home. Our girls loved to hang in the lobby, which has a spectacular view of Cap Esterel and the Mediterranean and has a brand new collection of children's books, which can be borrowed free of charge.
