This lodging is adequate if you're willing to put up with limited opening of the reception desk (WARNING: you will NOT be able to check in if you arrive outside their working hours!), a very poorly designed parking garage, cleaning up your own room, really weird appliances and a 200 Euro deposit (not standard at any other hotel I've stayed in). We couldn't get the air conditioning to work and it turned out you had to shut the patio door BEFORE turning it on or it didn't work -- no instructions, no help, etc. and the staff seemed really surprised that someone wouldn't just somehow figure this out. So we had one very miserable night in which no one got much sleep in 80-degree weather. God forbid they should leave a note that actually tells you how to work it -- particularly as there will be no one to ask for 13 hours between the reception closing at night and opening the next morning! ... There is no staff around at night so woe to you if you are locked out by the coded gates (the place is locked up like Fort Knox) or can't get your toilet to flush, etc. The place has been renovated, but one wonders what it was like BEFORE as it is just about the level of a bad dorm room now, right down to the cheap mattresses and the curious smell which I think emanates from the strange, hemp-like floor covering. It does have a nice garden but it is too far from either the beach or downtown Nice to walk with comfort (at least with young kids -- the beach is about a half mile away and it's uphill on the way back and across a busy road). It has the smallest hotel pool I have ever seen. So if you're going to go to the lovely Cote d'Azur, either pick a family-friendly place that offers a bit more or find a place closer to the beach and the city center. I would just avoid Maeva properties unless there are no other options.
