“Great find on the Cote d'Azur”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

Finding good, comfortable accomodation with a good value for money on the Cote d'Azur is like winning the lottery. The Résidence Villa d'Elsa is such a find.

The residence is not a typical hotel, but more of an appartment hotel. It's a well renovated building, with nice, well designed modernised rooms. Reception was very friendly, providing helpful tips and the access information to the free internet.

The room we had was offering a small kitchenette, which allowed us to enjoy baguette and croissants in the comfort of our own appartment in the morning. A nespresso machine was also a nice add-on. We bought capsules at the nearby Casino supermarché, some bakeries are also within walking distance. A short stroll of 3 to 5 minutes brings you to the beautiful beaches of St. Juan les Pins.

In the evening, the pedestrian area around the restaurant offers many different culinary options.

The bed of our room was a fold-away sofa, which was surprisingly comfortable. The windows opened to a pedestrian road, with many restaurants, at night quite lively. Best thing: to go with the flow and stay out late... Otherwise you might have to keep windows closed for sleeping and switch on the aircon.

Our summary: we will be back! The Résidence Villa d'Elsa is a great find, offering all we needed.

Though Juan-les-Pins is pretty small, you'd be hard pushed to get a more central location. The entrance is on a pedestrianised road, packed with tasteful (and tasty) restaurants. It is also a stone throw away from the beach and top bars (Pam Pam bar is a must).

We stayed in the duplex apartment on the top floor, which was cunningly set out, creating ample living and sleeping areas (for 3 adults), especially given the premium for space in the region. A couple of flat screen TV's and DVD players, Nespresso coffee machine and reasonably equipped small kitchenette, make it good functionally as well.

Staff, although few, are ample and friendly.

You would be doing yourself injustice if you were not sampling the local eateries, which are literally a stumble away. If you needed it, there is a well stocked supermarket at the end of the road.

Not sure of the room prices in season, but out of season (beginning of October) when we went, it was very reasonable. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Top floor duplex is a good choice

Nice modern room. Was also bothered with the fact I paid 119euros a night and only got a couch with a fold out bed, but slept surprisingly well. Front-desk staff was very helpful. Cleaning and supplying of room could have been better. Great spot if you want to be in the middle of all the action but beware it's noisy.

Stayed here with my boyfriend for the weekend (classic room) and had a great time. Great location, surrounded by bars (Pam Pam is a MUST), restaurants, shops, Casino and only 100m from the beautiful beaches.
Room was very clean and was brand new, due to it recently being refurbished. Had everything we needed for our stay. Were slightly put off by the pull out sofa-bed, but was very comfy and slept great. If you are staying longer than a weekend, I would suggest having a Duplex room with a proper bed.
Were given clean towels every day and were provided with bottles of water in the fridge.
Couple of downsides... Coffee was not replenished on the 2nd morning, no shaver in the shaving kit and we were a towel down on the 2nd day.
Parked in the Hotel Ambassadeur car park, 3 mins walk down the road, and was 55 EUR for 3 nights.
Will definately stay there again next time we visit Juan Les Pins.
