First time in this place and kind of disappointed. Apartments are equipped but no air condition, if you have bigger car you will experience issues with the parking as the residence parking is very limited. You will need a car or bus transport to go to the beaches as the beach under residence (takes a bit of downhill and climbing on the way back) does not have any services. In addition, overall French Riviera in this part tends to be expensive and not really worth the money. You will be much better off visiting Italy or Croatia or Greece.

Concerning the air conditionned some projects are on study but at the end of the day you can
breathe a sea breeze.
Parkings are indeed provided in underground garage for vehicles less than 2 Tons ;
otherwise some outside parkings can be occupied according to availability (without
reservation)
Our site is quiet and surrounded by a wooded area, rather more than in other Côte
d'Azur little towns.
There is a quiet beach underneath the residence.

The "Le Golfe Bleu" in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin is a great place to stay if you want to enjoy Monaco, but don't want to spend a big amount of money. We stayed at a big apartment for 6-8 persons last summer and only payed about 280 Euros. The receptionists were always friendly and helpful. To my surprise they could also speak english, german and portuguese! The apartments are big, clean and have a beautiful view over the sea. The building also has a little path to the beach and Monaco is just a view minutes away by bus. There's only negative thing I can say about it, the design of the rooms is very old and the wifi didn't work so well. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful stay there!

We were very happy to spend a wonderful week in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, and Golfe Bleu was our choice for a great low-budget stay. We were 5 friends (part of a larger group) and shared one three-room appartment. Best advantages: sea view, clean rooms, fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher & microwave, huge balcony with two doors (one from the bedroom and one from the living room). As Le Golfe Bleu is close to the beach and "Le Corbusier" promenade, we used to wake up early for a nice jogging round on the path and back (1 hour), after which we enjoyed our breakfast on the balcony, in the morning sun, watching the waves.
The train station is close and you can hear the trains, but this no big deal, as they are rapid trains and make a hardly audible wooshing sound. Indeed there are no shops around, but you can take the bus for three stops to the nearest supermarket in Monte Carlo, or walk 20 minutes. Roquebrune - old village - is reachable on foot, with a lot of steps to climb, but this makes the trip even more enjoyable. You can reach Menton, the pearl of Cote d'Azur, walking on Le Corbusier path and promenade Robert Shuman (about one and a half to two hours). Bus 100 can take you to both directions - to Menton or to Nice (port) through Monaco, so you have a lot of places to visit and enjoy.
Le Golfe Bleu is very conveniently located for a lot of activities: jogging, walking, exploring, sunbathing, paragliding. If looking for a quiet low-budget place to stay, this is what you are looking for.

There have been a lot of mixed reviews of this 'resort' and I think a few misconceptions need to be put to rest.

First of all, this is a quiet apartment development in a residential area and anyone expecting shops, bars and restaurants on their doorstep needs to go somewhere else. It is the quietness that is the attraction. Apart from occasional trains all you can hear most of the time is the noise of the waves crashing on the beach below. It even practically blots out the traffic noise from the busy main road only a couple of hundred metres away, apart from scooters of course! The views are magnificent and the nearest beach, a couple of hundred metres away past the railway station, is actually a bit sandy and the quite good by the pokey, pebbly standards of beaches in this area.

We stayed there in October and I think if we had stayed during the summer the lack of a/c might have been a problem. As it was, with the windows open at night the temperature was just perfect. The apartment itself was very spacious and well-equipped but we had paid a bit extra for a one-bed apartment - I did not see one of the studios. The balcony was huge and could be accessed from both the living room and the bedroom.

We found the reception unfailingly courteous and helpful - they appear to speak perfect English but spoke to us in French since that was what we wanted. We were able to leave our bags in reception on the day we left and collect them later and there was no quibble about the 200 deposit.

If you have a car (with which I wish you luck - the traffic in the area is horrendous!), the rest of this post will not apply to you.

The main problem we had during our stay was that the railway station at Roquebrune-Cap Martin (situated a couple of hundred metres from the apartments) was closed for works during our stay and will be until at least April 2015. This meant we were relying on the 100 bus which stops at the 4 Chemins stop just beside the apartment and runs between Nice, Monaco and Menton. It is a very regular service but is very slow, prone to traffic delays and not much fun if you have luggage with you. On the other hand the 110 airport bus also stops at the 4 Chemins stop so you can go directly to and from Nice Airport without having to go into Nice. Be careful walking on the main road - the pavement is VERY narrow. I personally would not stay here again unless the train station reopens as we had planned our holiday on the basis of being able to travel quickly along the coast and into Italy by train - we were still able to do this but first had to get a bus to Menton railway station.

There are no restaurants anywhere near the apartment that we could find, apart from a very expensive one at the hotel beside the bus stop. There are a few (also very expensive) in Roquebrune village which you reach after climbing a lot of steps and I would not fancy climbing back down after a few glasses of wine! There is reasonable Vietnamese restaurant in St Roman (see below).

There are a number of supermarkets within reasonable reach. The nearest is the Casino at St Roman, just before Monaco. It is about 20 minutes' walk or 4 stops on the bus. You can walk most of the way along the coastal path to St Roman to avoid the traffic but you have to walk along the road for the last bit. In the opposite direction, there is an Intermarche and a 'Super U' in Carnoles (15 minutes on the bus) and another U in Menton (add another 10 minutes), near the bus and train stations.

Basically, provided you are prepared to cook for yourself and take public transport, this is a perfect place for quiet, relaxing holiday.

We stayed in this place recently. All I can say is that it was terrible and without doubt the worst place I've ever stayed in. The owners should be ashamed of themselves. It's not exactly cheap and I feel that they should have the decency to reinvest some of their profits back into modernising the place. The place is smelly and outdated. I could hear the people in the next room each morning. For some reason they seemed to be early risers. The man seemed to cough noisily for a half hour each morning at about 5am. The train that passes early in the morning is quite annoying. The whole experience was a complete nightmare. There are no shops nearby. I found the staff rude. Also it is difficult/almost impossible to get a taxi back at night if you're visiting monte carlo.

Room tip: Just don't stay there. It's hellish!
