What a fabulous hotel! We were upgraded to a junior suite, which was a corner room on the 4th floor. The views were not to be believed ... of the sea, the mountains ... everything. The room and bathroom were huge, beautiful and faultless in every way. Upon arrival we found a gift of beautifully wrapped chocolates and a card for my husband's birthday. The next day we received plate of beautiful chocolates in our room. The breakfast every morning out on the terrace was heavenly. We enjoyed lounging by the pool ... very low-key. Not like a crazy American hotel pool. I loved the location ... we were able to take a nice long walk, and had lovely dinners in Villefrance 2 nights and a casual dinner in Cap Ferrat one night. Stay here if you every could you will not regret it!

Part of the Leading Hotels of the World group, it has definitely earned its place- An amazing location with private beach and pool- I stayed in the Orangery which is separate to the main hotel on the other side of the pool- It is lovely and quiet with beautiful rooms- my room was a little dark as it did not get any sun but the high ceiling seem to balance this out. Breakfast on the terrace is highly recommended, great spot to see all the yachts parked up - you can walk all around the Cap from a footpath beside the hotel- watch out for Dog pooh!
All the staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and excellent English. Best service I have had in Europe to date.

Room Tip: Main Hotel, pool facing has the morning and early afternoon sunshine on the balcony, and the views

We picked this hotel because of the location and positive impressions after our stay in 2012.
This year our company sent us here for over a month. Everything was organised by external travel agency- our boss wanted to be sure that we don’t have to worry about anything.

Because of some business issues we thought we might stay a little bit longer (hotel was booked with full credit guaranteed by agency’s card until the 10th April 2013), so we wrote the e-mail to the abovemantioned agency asking about possibility to stay until the 20th April. The agency answered that they checked with the Royal Riviera Hotel and it is possible. But we didn’t make any reservation. Just wanted to know if this is possible. We received the answer in the e-mail saying that our stay is booked and paid until the 10th April so on that date we checked out.

Well, we have been trying to do so- because at the reception desk they told us they will not let us go! Apparently the agency prolonged our stay without our knowledge and confirmation until the 20th and when hotel called them asking what is going on because we wanted to leave- the agency blocked the credit card that guaranteed the extended stay and hotel could not charge the penalty fee- 10 000 EUR.
The Royal Riviera staff was trying to negotiate with us and then offer 8000 EUR penalty that they wanted us to pay- otherwise they will not let us leave the hotel. Our car was bloked at the hotel parking!
We found this idea ridiculous because we had nothing to do with it so the police was called.

The police came in and after checking all documents decided that we are right- we are not the side of this transaction- we didn’t make any reservation, didn’t give any card details nor even passports so we are obviously free to go. All this situation took place in front of other hotel guest and employees and it took more than 2 hours.
Couple of hours later one of the real estate agents we are working with in French Riviera told us that he was called by one of the Royal Riviera management employee and worn by him! This person told him that we are „dodgy, we didn’t pay for our stay and he cannot trust us“. We paid in Royal Riviera over 21 000 EUR! That was so embarrassing, not to say humiliating!
All of this made us tired- we decided to pick our roof rack (full of our personal belongings- worth 5000 EUR-we left it in the hotel storage at the arrival) later because we have been expecting some delivery anyway-it was scheduled on Friday/Monday.
Since Monday 13th April we have been calling concierge couple of times a day but he always said that nothing came in. We tracked the parcel on DPD/Exapaq site and it clearly said that it has been delivered to the hotel on the 13th April at 11:19 AM. As a proof of delivery was a hotel stamp.
So we did come to the hotel asking for roof rack and package but we have been told that only manager has the key and unfortunately is his day off. So we came in two days after but manager again was absent and we have been asked to come in the afternoon. And another time- same situation. Then we came with the local policeman-but he didn't even want to hear the story,just spoke to the manager and said:"give them 8000 EUR if you want your stuff back and learn French because you're in France".
All what we found in the Royal Riviera is absurd, ridiculous, hihgly unprofessional and below any standard so that is why we make this complaint.We will obviously contact police again, make official testimony, then contact our lawyer and even embassy if the police will not help us.
The experience fell far short of our expectations - considering the great deal of money we have spent. We are so disappointed and simply shocked by this terrible service and behaviur- this is not what anyone expects for over 500 EUR per night!

It is quite unusual for us to have to reply to false allegations and we find it quite regrettable. This review is currently in the hands of the police and French Justice. Any document to prove our good faith is available by the Hotel or by our lawyer.

We stayed at this hotel during the Monaco GP weekend. Senate GP had arranged this for us and they could not have gotten this more right. Upon arrival, all the staff we so courteous and warmly greeted us with a very welcoming smile. Check in was painless, quick and precise; we were impressed! could this get any better – oh so yes. Our room, 208, was ready for us. It had a balcony and overlooked the pool, gardens and sea. It was a superior room and we would defiantly recommend the extra cost. Huge comfortable bed, plenty of wardrobe space (not with those dreadful coat hangers with the clips – you know what I mean). The bed turn down service was wonderful, with apple fragrance scented spray for the pillows and they left the bottle for us to use. Good size bathroom with separate WC. That night we ate in the hotel – though we only arrived that day, all the staff seemed to know our name, in the bar for pre dinner drinks, in the restaurant, the concierge desk and so forth. Just by this little piece of attention to detail for their customers, they made us feel very special. Breakfast from 7-11 was much more civilised than in most hotels when it’s usually 8-10. We sat on a table outside, in the sunshine, overlooking the pool and sea. It was a self service breakfast buffet with just about everything you can think of and the service was impeccable. It was chilly in the first morning, I was only wearing a strappy top, so they offered me a wrap for my shoulders – how perfect, kind and very considerate was that! We were at the race on the Saturday and Sunday but had Monday free. Upon arrival at the pool after breakfast, the attendant, again knowing our name, took us to the bed we chose, placed the towels on the beds for us etc. As the sun moved during the day, they would ask if we needed our bed move around, replaced our towels if we had been swimming, drinks service, nothing was too much trouble. They were very attentive but not intrusive – again perfect. We wanted a late check out as we were not due to leave until 4pm, the hotel let us do this and for no extra charge!!!! This was the most perfect hotel, in a wonderful location, but what made it oh so special was the attention to detail they provided and the staff themselves. Thank you all so much and we greatly look forward to staying there again one day.

By far one of our favorite hotels. This hotel is perfectly located. Close enough to walk to some great dinners, etc. and far enough away from the craziness. We rented a car and did some day excursions (Monaco, Arles, etc.) from here. I cannot say enough nice things about the staff here. Very professional and attentive. Every day started with breakfast on the patio overlooking the Riviera. Not a bad way to start the day!! We would stay here again, without a doubt.
