“Overpriced, misleading pictures and bad location”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Bedrooms have very small windows without enough natural light. Hotel does not have opening to the sea, i.e. all rooms overlook inner yard with small pools thus very noisy throughout the day. Internet is available at an extra charge, 3 euros per hour! Way overpriced, we were very disappointed with this P&V, having already been in another one before. La Bocca is very far away from the center of Cannes, you need a car or be ready to take a bus. Also highly unpleasant and claustrophobic underground passage to get to the public beach.

Room Tip: Take a room with a sea view, there are only three of these with additional charge.

We were ok with our room but it seems it was not the case with everybody. For a short stay in Cannes it was ok. It is properly situated, the staff is ok, the restaurant is ok too.We were ok with our room but it seems it was not the case with everybody. For a short stay in Cannes it was ok.

Dirty, disgusting, broken furniture, toilet a disgrace.... Our booking was completely messed up, we ended up sharing rooms for one night with people we didn´t know and reception didn´t help to sort out the problem. And what is worse....they charged our credit cards for extra rooms when we asked for another appartment! Avoid this place.

This has to be in my top 5 worst hotels in the world. DO NOT STAY HERE!!! The place has had no investment in the last 20-30 years and it shows - it is like staying in a hostel or even worse a hospital - the pool is deserted mainly because it looks like you would contract legionnaires disease!!! What a dump!!!

I'm only writing this - belatedly - because things have obviously not improved since our stay there 2 years ago. Some of the positive comments on this site (from first-time posters!) seem downright suspicious to me.

We stayed here 2 years ago and frankly it was disgusting - dirty public areas, broken furniture, overcrowded pool area - the worst Pierre and Vacance I've ever stayed in and we've stayed in 10 different sites over 10 years as a family. I took photographs and sent them to P&V management, but from the current comments they've done nothing to improve it - this property should not be in their brochure, it destroys the reputation of the company.

We only stayed one night (my wife and kids were too upset to stay longer) and were fortunate to get moved to Isola 2000 for the remainder of our holiday (many people were complaining at the reception about the quality of the hotel! but clearly didn't know as we did, that you can ask to move elsewhere to another P&V resort). Isola was lovely - a gorgeous typical P&V apartment with great views in a lovely resort 70km north of Nice in the Alpes - lots of sun and none of the unpleasantness of Cannes Beach Residence. I wrote to P&V after my holiday - with photos - and received a refund of the difference between the Cannes and Isola holiday prices. this resored my faith a bit in the company but they really need to do something serious about this site.

Very nice place, relaxing and very good situated. Great position to visit the french riviera- about 20 mns from Antibes, 30 mns from Nice and 45 from Monaco. We had a great time!
