Reviewed June 9, 2014

So i have given this 5 star because it was really good value for money. It isn't marketed as a top class hotel. It is what is is a basic, comfortable room in a great spot in Juan Les Pins. Really short walk to the beach, the train station and bars. The room was secure and clean.

The reception staff occasionally didn't speak good english, but they still provided a very good service, so it didn't really matter.

If your looking for a hotel where you can sit out and sunbathe or read a book etc, this isn't for you as there is no area available. Instead we enjoyed relaxing at the local beach bars, hired a lounger and they offer great service down there and good value for money.

On another note - Juan Les Pins as an area was a brilliant stay, a lovely little resort, we went into Cannes every day on the train and also took taxis home which didn't cost too much. Be warned at night after around 10pm I would recommend girls do NOT get the train from Juan Les Pins, as small groups and individual males looking pretty dodgy and intimidating start to linger. Just get a taxi when its late. Other than that daytime and early evening no problem.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask in advance for a quiet room if your not the type to go our partying.

I stayed at au tropico hotel in october 2012 and was a nice experience. The rooms are not so impresive but are clean and the bathroom is clean and spacious.
The hotel is close to the train station and to the beach but the neighbourhood seems a bit risky.

The location is excellent, really close to nice public and private beaches. The city center is also nearby. An inexpensive public parking (0.60 euro an hour, free at night) is just around the corner. The room has air conditioner.
The breakfast is too expensive, so we skipped it. Unless you need jam, baguette and orange juice, I recommend buying a croissant at a nearby bakery and a coffee across the street. You'll pay about a third of the breakfast cost.

I am a little ambivalent to this hotel, because some things were very good, whereas others were returning irritations. I stayed for almost two weeks because of work in the nearest city of Cannes. Trains were frequent during daytime and took only ten minutes (but the last one is at 20.45 on weekdays, so beware!), so Juan-les-Pins is a great opportunity because prices are less than half of those in Cannes (especiall during the film festival in May).

The location of Hotel au Tropico was absolutely great, a few minutes walk from the train station and a few minutes to the nice little public beach. Bakeries, supermarkets and small restaurants are very nearby, and yet you hear no music or noise from any bars or clubs. The street does however have some heavy traffic, and this can be a problem if you are a light sleeper, especially in the morning. For me this was not a big issue, but I still had problems sleeping due to paper thin walls between the rooms. You depend on quiet neighbours. If your neighbour wants to watch television half the night or fight heavily with his girlfriend, you are almost sure to hear every word. As for the room, it was simple but nice, with comfortable new beds, and always impeccably clean. Internet connection was always great, which was important for me, so thank you for that! Breakfast was allright if you are into sweet things: Bread, a croissant, honey, jam and nutella. If you prefer salty food like cheese or ham you are better off in a cafés nearby, where breakfast also cost less.

A warning about the hotel’s claim that you can make your own coffe or tea in the room (which for me is so important that I often choose hotel based on it): The information is simply ot correct, the rooms have no water boilers. When I asked the very friendly guy at the reception he offered me a pot of hot water, but this won’t help if you leave in the morning before 7 am or return after 9 pm, when the reception is closed. I ended up buying my own waterboiler, to be able to drink my morning and evening tea.

Room Tip: The rooms on the back may be quieter.

Spent three nights here with a friend whilst visiting Antibes/Juan les Pins area. Most impressed with this hotel. Good value for money. Owners were very friendly and welcoming. Even whilst leaving, they were eager to offer us advice on other places worth visiting in France. The rooms were clean and tidy. Shower was good. I can't really fault the place. Other reviewers have complained about the noise. True, it is quite noisy at night but the hotel is not located on a street with bars or clubs. It is not exactly their fault if cars drive by at random hours of night. Perhaps they could look into installing double-glazed windows. The only thing we disliked was the shower not having a hook in the wall but again, this is a small complaint. I would return here again.

Au tropico was ok to stay, but I won't go back.
No real problems there, but the hotel owner seemed to worry all the time, that we ruin his property.
He sopke english only when it was neede to get the information thru. But if I asked something, he forgot his capability of speaking. That felt a bit rude.
Rooms were clean.
The best part in this hotel was the best breakfast Croissant on the planet.

If you get a room facing the street, you’ll be hearing cars, lots of noisy scooters, train (50 m away) and overflying planes. Though the street is narrow it is one of the busiest in the town. When all that adds up you get a mild headache and fresh air seasoned with fumes.
The staircase is narrow and walking up to the last floor with a baby wasn't the most comfortable.
300 euros for 4 nights seemed like a bad deal for us in the end.
The price does not include all taxes, be ready to pay a few euros extra.
Well, Juan-les-Pins isn't for poor guys. But if you can't find a better hotel than this one, go some other place or find a few plugs for your ears.

Room Tip: what little you save by choosing this hotel will buy you no remedy for the spoiled time
