Hotel Royal-Riviera
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 18, 2013

The Royal Riviera offers an extremely convenient location at the top of Cap Ferrat, just a short walk to the town of Beaulieu Sur Mer and the train station. The hotel is comfortably, beach elegant with spacious rooms, modern, spacious bathrooms, and the most comfortable beds in Europe. The lobby, bar and restaurant are lovely. Breakfast, which is included, consists of a bountiful buffet or the option of room service at no extra charge. Staff in the restaurant, bar, front desk to housekeeping could not be any more accommodating and defy the stereotype of the French people. There is a nice sized swimming pool with poolside restaurant for lunch, as well as a private sandy beach with lounge chairs and umbrellas. My only caution is that the hotel is perhaps a little too family friendly as the pool is full of many children and very noisy. While staying here, make a point to dine at the luxurious gourmet restaurant at the Grand Hotel Cap Ferrat at the tip of the peninsula. Also, visit the hilltop town of Eze and dine at the Chèvre d'Or. Avoid the dirty, congested town of Nice.

Room Tip: Select a sea/garden view in the main building. Rooms in the Orangerie villas offer no view of the s...

I do not usually write these reviews but feel the need after our stay there this week. we were in the south of france for 8 nights and stayed at royal riviera for 4. The hotel was one of the most pleasant stays I have ever had!. There service to the guests is beyond compare. From the consierge reccomendations for dinner to the polite and caring pool and beach staff to the bell boys that parked my car two to three times a day. Everything was perfect. They are also fortunate in having the perfect location situated in what we felt was the nicest areas of the south of france. Inside and out there could not be a better spot to base your holiday.

I had just two nights at The Royal Riviera this week. It was my first time there but certainly won't be my last. The Hotel has an intimate feeling and is stylish without being brash or glitzy. Never mind that the restaurant no longer has Michelin stars - I have dined at a number that have them but have not lived up to expectations. The food is first rate and the service impeccable.

The great plus of this place however is that the staff are so warm and welcoming and really do their best to make the experience a pleasure for guests - they succeed in their efforts. Bravo !

The Royal Riviera is truly a wonderful hotel. Beautifully situated right on the water, with a private beach and a lovely pool, as you will see from pictures on the website. We were very happy with our room, which was facing the pool and the beach (... wonderful sight to wake up to!) The food was divine, and I cannot imagine a more lovely setting for a restaurant overlooking the the water.

But honestly the most impressive part of the 5 days we spent at the Royal Riviera was the incomparable service. The staff are truly one of a kind and went far out of their way to make us feel welcomed and well cared for. In fact, the Deputy Manager, Eric, took an hour of his time to accompany us and translated for us while we filed a police report, as we unfortunately had some items stolen from our luggage on the train. (Go figure - we always rent a car and the only time we decided not to worry about driving - this happens). Eric accompanying us was well beyond the call of duty and he made sure that we enjoyed every last minute of our stay. We feel like we have a new friend! The staff are friendly, warm and sincere. So not only is the hotel itself lovely, the staff are what we will come back for. We were so very impressed with the level of service. We have been home for 24 hours and I cannot wait to return.

Stayed for one night, the room was great (mirror turned into tv) and had been newly spruced up. The service was great. We had a lovely breakfast on the terrace. The pool is heated and has comfortable sunbeds/towels. Loved their private part of the beach again with comfortable sunbeds/towels....sea fresh and clean. Ate lunch at the pizzeria on the beach...would recommend walking 10m into the town to the brassieres instead. Had lovely massage in spa...there is a small gym there too....and private shower rooms fully stocked in case you had checked out and had a later flight. Had dinner in Monaco......Beef bar.......fantastic.....recommend a helicopter tour of Monaco on a clear day. Look fprward to returning

Room Tip: Stay in main hotel on first floor one of the rooms with large balcony

I stayed at the Royal Riviera for 5 nights from the 20th June. My daughter stayed for 3 nights but did not want to leave. It is simply the best hotel you could ever wish to stay at in the South of France. It is positioned right on the beach between Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Villefranche. You can walk to the centre of Villefranche in 25 minutes and the view of the bay from the hillside is quite spectacular. You can walk to Beaulieu-sur-Mer, in the opposite direction in 5 to 10 minutes. There is a train station in Beaulieu and you can take the train along the coast to Villefranche, Nice and beyond in one direction and in the other direction you can be in Monaco/Monte Carlo in 12 minutes. From the hotel you can take the coastal footpath/running path to Saint Jean Cap Ferrat and to Cap Ferrat itself. You don't need a car to get around but you can always get a taxi if you want to go elsewhere.
I had a room (not one of the most expensive ones) with a view to die for and the facilities were just perfect for a relaxing holiday. You could either go out and explore the area or just stay around the wonderful pool or private beach relaxing. The breakfasts out on the terrace, lunches round the pool bar and dinners on the terrace were all of the highest quality with the absolute best ingredients being used.
What makes this hotel really special however is the General Manager, Bruno, and his fantastic team of staff. You felt at home as soon as you were welcomed in by the Reception Staff, and whether it was the breakfast staff serving you breakfast, the pool staff looking after you around the pool or the beach staff taking care of you on the beach or Alain in the Bar in the evening or the restaurant staff for dinner, they all just made you feel so at home. Well done Royal Riviera. I shall be returning soon.

We recently spent 3 nights at the hotel. Quite expensive, so we stayed in one of the mountain facing rooms. I had read warnings about these rooms on trip adviser, but thought they might be wrong. They weren't. These rooms do hear the trains go past early in the early mornings, and cars and motor cycles zooming past in the middle of the night are also very noisy. As if all that wasn't enough, we had the good fortune of being allocated a room next to the elevator. Or was it inside the elevator??? The noise was so bad one would have thought we were going up and down till late at night. We were on our way to join a cruise in Monte Carlo and were travelling for a month from Australia, so our suitcases were quite large. The room was very small, so one of our cases had to live in the bathroom. The small double bed was also a challenge. Such a shame, because it truly is a beautiful hotel, but we would not go back.

Room Tip: This is such a beautiful hotel, but when you read warnings about the mountain facing rooms being noi...
