“Excellent Personalized Attention and Service”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed in the hotel for a huge conference in Cannes. We actually loved this location even better, away from the craziness and crowds of Cannes. It felt like a vacation, quiet, walking distance to Cap D'Antibes and Antibes, beaches where we could find chairs, great shopping, excellent restaurants, and a gorgeous drive to Cannes along the ocean back and forth. The team of Lucca and Christoph were fantastic and went above and beyond at every opportunity. We woke up Sunday morning to beautiful guitar played by a gipsy guitarist on the dock near the hotel. Very serene, very private, very perfect. Will return without hesitation.

Stayed March 2014, traveled on business

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for sharing your recent experience at the Belles Rives with the TA Community!
We are very happy to read that you enjoyed the Belles Rives despite being in the area for a congress. It is true that we have more and more guests that prefer to stay with us while attending one of the big meetings in Cannes. Our atmosphere is so relaxing that you can forget your business for a little time but, at the same time, you are very near to the “action”. Our region is reach of charming and unique places and our Head Concierge Luca, together with Christophe and his team, know its best secrets. They were very proud of your quotation.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Belles Rives for another very serene, very private, very perfect moment!

Yours sincerely,

I stayed here on business with a group of customers that we were taking to a cardiology conference. I don't often stay in expensive hotels and am not normally impressed by so-called luxury establishments. This hotel however had a lot of charm. The staff were polite and helpful and even a little friendly and did everything to make our stay perfect. We needed to be out early each morning and the chef came in a little earlier than normal each day to make sure we had breakfast before we left.
We didn't eat any meals here apart from breakfast but the restaurant was a nice environment. The piano bar was opulent and I loved the leopard print chairs!
The highlight for me was of course the location. I was lucky enough to have a bedroom with small balcony overlooking the sea, and it was truly beautiful. The same view could be enjoyed on the terrace bar where we met each evening before leaving for our evening events. I could happily have stayed for a few more days, and wish I had flown my wife over for the weekend and extended my stay.
I don't now how much it cost as it was expensed by my company but it was a truly notable stay. I would love to stay there again but with my wife next time.

Room Tip: Sea view .... It's got to be the sea view!

Dear guest,

Thank you for your lovely review!
We are very happy to learn that you enjoyed the unique atmosphere of our property despite being here for business!
The town of Antibes Juan-Les-Pins has recently inaugurated an ultra-modern conference centre, few steps away from the Belles Rives, and it is true that the hotel is now very useful for business travellers too!
Your compliments are very important for us and they have been forwarded to the whole team.
We look forward to welcoming you back again. Maybe with your wife when the beach will be open and you will be able to enjoy the Belles Rives in the summer splendour. (By the way, our beach club will open on April 18th).

Very truly yours,

The Management

I stayed at the hotel Belles Rives a few weeks ago and this hotel is really fantastic, charming and beautiful room, view to die for, top notch service, l’élégance à la Française.
However, usually, in France, I can of always have problems with the attitude of the staff, not always charming and helpful, well my stay here made it think radically differently. Julien, the restaurant director, is ONE OF A KIND, he is just IT: the perfect host, well he was trained by the best: Boulud and Payard, the finest in NYC. The food by the former chef of Alléno at Le Meurice was divine and the entire team so motivated, huge thanks also to the somm: passionate and so professional. it was just the perfect stay, and I will come back.

I visited Belles Rives hotel for afternoon 'Tea-Time' in the Piano Bar. It has to be one of the most fabulous places I've ever been to. Sitting on the terrace overlooking the coast and watching the sun set over the Mediterranean was truly amazing. Then withdrawing to the lounge-bar, with its walls adorned with pictures from a bygone era of Scott Fitzgerald, his family and friends gave a sense of both grandeur and coziness. The jazz music being played by the piano player added to the mood. To top it all, the staff, particularly in reception, were top notch. I even got a candle with my tea as it was my birthday. If you're ever in this area and stuck for something exceptional to do, this is the place to be.

Thank you for your wonderful review!

We really appreciate hearing from our guests as their comments are vital for us in order to improve our mission towards a service excellence. We are glad you enjoyed our afternoon at the Bar Fitzgerald. Our tea-time, in partnership with the Parisian Salon de The Angelina, has become a true must of the Cap d’Antibes and it is true that the piano music and the “Fitzgerald atmosphere” create a magic setting.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Belles Rives as well as to our Bar Fitzgerald for another exceptional birthday!

My partner and I got married at the Belle Rives last September and it was perfect. The setting is perfect and the day and evening could not have gone better. We love this area and the hotel. Staff, food and service were exceptional. Fab in summer to with its gorgeous terrace overlooking juan les pins and beyond. Very romantic setting and we will be sure to visit when we are back in a few months.

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the magnificint view from our room. The restaruant was superb with the most romantic setting and excellent service. We thought the rooms were very average and small, but liked the history of the property and the location. Concierge was excellent.

Room Tip: I would only stay there if you get a room with a view.

Dear guest,

We are very grateful for your stay of last July as well as for your nice review.

We are delighted to read that you the enjoyed the views and the unique, historical, atmosphere of the Belles Rives. It is true that the restaurant offers that special "plus" which renders the property so special...

Regarding the rooms, as we stated in some previous reviews, the hotel is protected by the French Historic Monuments Authority. Sometimes it is not very easy to combine this aspect with the most modern facilities!

We have forwarded your compliments to our concierge team, who are one of our best highlights. They were very happy!

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Belles Rives whenever your travel plans will lead you to the French Riviera and, meanwhile, we remain.

Yours Sincerely,

The Management

I've been pleased to stay in one of the most famous hostel of Juan les Pins.
Everything went well for the reception sea-view bedroom.

You can feel the atmosphere and the history of the place, almost magical.
