“THEATRE OF THE WORLD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

So you love to watch films and you also like red carpet and cinema stars. You like flashbulbs glitterati, limos with long legged Cleopatras. Then you have stepped in at the right place. This is awesomeness. This is where the glamour meets glitz and opulence meets opera.
Don't forget to look down on the stones engraved with many star signatures near the palace. Don't forget to watch a film in the amazing theatres. Don't forget to bite into a panini as you take a walk around the compound gazing at the bathing beauties and the most astonishing yatchs of the world.
Just opposite the theatre there are great places to eat. Visit Cafe Roma. The buzz and the steak is great out there.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Well, let's say that I was expecting much more. Worth a pic with the building, not more. The view is nice but not that unique in Cannes

“Not as grand as I had expected”

It looks very ordinary when the festivities are over...but still beautifully situated within the Croisette.

“Lovely views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We sat outside the Palais watching the superyatch mooring, and the activity of the boat agents arriving to make sure the yatch owners and crew had all their requirements. We saw a few hopefull crew approaching with their portfolios to get a job on board. Eventually we had a personal tour of one of the biggest in the harbour, a thrilling experience!
