I have spent 14 days at Le Golfe Bleu with my familly, and I really mean that I have wasted my holiday.
It is located in the middle of non urbanised area. Nearest market is 2 km far, so when my 3 yeras old child wanted an ice cream, I had to go there by the bus. The same story was every morning, when somebody had to go shopping for the groceries. Yes, I could use my car to go to the market, but the garage is underground (you must use a lift for your car) and it is very complicated to get your car outside. The stairs to the garage are very steep, and the light is poor (sometimes you are in the complete dark), so I had an impression that Freddy Krueger will come in front of me.
The resort is conveniently located near the bus stop and the train station, so we were using public transportation often.
The swimming pool is small and often overcrowded. The "children playground" is terrible, and I couldn't let my child play there at all.
The beach is near, but you have to use a lot of stairs to get to it. If I have to describe Roquebrune-Cap-Martin with one word it would be STAIRS (and more stairs).
We didn't manage to find any restaurants near the resort.
Rooms are rather small with elemetary furniture. If you want to use towels and bed sheets, you have to bring them from home, or to pay 8,5 eur/week pp. Internet access will cost you another 5 eur/week, but you will enjoy in the astonish high speed of 300 kbps (yes it is kbps, not mbps). At this speed you can't use youtube or other streaming services. This means that you will be limited to about 30 TV channels (mostly French) which are preset on room TV. There is no aircondition in the room, so If you want to cook it can be difficult to cool the room.
The staff is friendly and the view from the balcony is beautiful. Those are the only things about this resort that I liked.
Monaco is near (5 min by bus or train), and Nice isn't so far (30 min by train), so I have spent most of my time there.
I certainly won't visit this resort again, and I will send a letter of complaint to my travel agent who recomended it to me.
