We have a house near St. Tropez and know a lot of the so called celebrity haunts well but had avoided Nikki Beach until our teenagers were old enough to go to - more their scene than ours. Seven of us went yesterday - never again and I would not recommend it to anyone who isn't a Russian Billionaire with more money than manners. We arrived early to secure sunbeds for the day (which you pay for), staff were at worse disinterested and extremely pushy about us buying alcohol of which the least you can buy is a jeroboam - of course they have smaller on the menu just not available conveniently! When we left the sunbeds for lunch having told our waitress, we arrived back having spent far over a thousand euros for the average food, we found they had taken our sunbeds away and removed our belongings. They were rude, stroppy and completely unhelpful and blatantly lied, especially Jeremy, the jumped up so called manager of the sunbeds (such a big job). We were appalled as were the boys - who at the end of the day, will be their future custom. We have visited Le 55 and Key West for many years many times and they are vastly superior - for food, staff, sunbeds actually on the beach and star spotting! It wasn't even busy which in August probably says everything. Far better beach bars if you want late afternoon music and dancing too - AVOID Nikki Beach, it's terrible value, overated and disappointed.

Took a day trip to St. Tropez 7/29/06 from Nice, France (via boat). Great scenery along the way......took a cab from dock to Nikki Beach at the suggestion of most everyone (10-15 minute ride). Had a great deal of difficulty getting someone to get my husband and I chaise lounges anywhere near the pool.....you needed to be body beautiful for them to want to accomodate you in any way.....most rudeness I've ever experienced in my life!!!!
Great people watching though! They actually made us wait almost 30 minutes when there were 100's of lounges....then wouldn't even bring us towels after being tipped.....had to get my own!!!! The waitress also let you know that you will be paying 20 euros each for the lounges (were there an hour)...first even refusing to put it on our credit card and demanding cash...then later changing her story. We later ventured down to the actual beach (outside Nikki beach facility) and had lunch at an outdoor restaurant overlooking the water....food, and service were fabulous!!!! Water, beach, scenery were all incredible.....would like to go back to St. Tropez and spend more time.
