We were staying with friends nearby who had booked a day at the beach for two couples. This stunning original art deco hotel was a pleasure and I would go anytime the sun is shining. It has a little private beach ( no pool but who cares ) ; bookable sun chairs ; all day service ; a wonderful lunch ; a great place to watch people / boats / the world go by in Antibes which obviously has a tremendous history. The hotel is in Juan le Pins made famous by that old Peter Sarstedt hit "Where do you go to my Lovely " and there is no doubt that this is a nostalgic place. Not trendy Ibiza style or Cannes hipness but a place of style with stylish people.
You have to go if you are down there - we didn't look at the rooms but they look pretty good on the web. By the way, not cheap but that sums up the whole of the South of France at the moment.
