We stay at the finest hotels in Europe- the Splendido in Portofino, Le Sirenuse in Positano, Villa d'Este at Lake Como, Villa Gallici in Aix, Ritz London, Ritz Paris, George V, etc, etc. This hotel is the best of them all. Spectacular grounds, immaculate, fantastic pool and lounge area, wonderful food, exceptionally friendly staff. We were there just before Cannes and the hotel was only about 20% full. All the staff knew our names. We had a junior suite in the Eden Roc overlooking the Med. The room was large with a desk, sitting area with couch and chairs, large closets and king size bed. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. There were fresh cut flowers, a plate of fruit and a box of chocolates to welcome us. The TV was very high end- you plugged in your ipad, ipod etc which were charged through the TV and you could use those items through the TV if you so desired. The bathroom had a heated floor, two sinks, giant towels, top end shampoos, a great shower with a handheld that was aimed at your lower back and a rain dome. The shower was set about an inch lower than the floor so there was no chance of water seeping out. You were provided with flip flops for the pool. The pool area was awesome- great views, an infinity edge pool, steps into the Med. The fitness center was great- 4 treadmills that were nicer than anything I have seen. Also, there are 5 clay tennis courts. Everything is branded with the Eden Roc logo. The cleaning staff was told when we had left the room for turndown and servicing. They would hang shirts on hangers, and arrange your books for you on your nightstand. The concierge staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgable. All our requests were handled immediately, It was like being in heaven. The food at the restaurant was uniformly excellent. We stayed for 5 days. In the morning I would have crepes, my wife would have an excellent cappuccino. The breads, croissants and brioche were freshly made. All juices were freshly squeezed. At lunch I had the best (and most expensive) cheeseburger I ever ate. Dinner in the gastronomic restaurant was wonderful. Although the main courses were average, the service was wonderful, the presentation was great, the pink champagne and wine suggested by the staff excellent, great fois gras and nice cheese course as well as petit fours that were wonderful including 5 kinds of cream puffs. The Bellini bar staff were very friendly. The champagne drinks were excellent and they gave you not only olives but a large plate of cashews as well as petit fours of salmon etc. The only gripe I have is the crazy pricing and a few minor details as follows. As for pricing, our room was 1630E per night. At least parking, breakfast, wifi and tax was included. However, the minibar was not. At the pool, the cheapest sun tan lotion spf 50 was a cool 100E. The cheapest boat to rent was 365E per hour. The most expensive- 100,000E per day!! Minor trifles- the ledge in the shower was not large enough to accomodate my razor and my wife's shampoos. There were no heated towel racks. Altho there was an excellent digital thermostat, it was not handheld. Finally, the grill was only open for lunch. If you wanted dinner, unless you were eating at the gastronomic restaurant (which requires semiformal attire) you had to drive into town to eat. All in all, what a place!
