A delightful, boutique, stylish hotel in a wonderful location. Really comfortable rooms with sea views and perfect for the sunset. Very welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. It would be nice if during the season the beachside restaurant was open for more informal meals..the terrace is very formal and rather fancy food for our taste. If the hotel continues to charge...

My family stayed at the hotel for one week this summer (2014). We had a wonderful experience with the accommodations, the staff and the proximity to all that the Cote d"Azur has to offer.

We chose Juan les Pins in order to avoid the crowded streets of Antibes and were happy we did. The hotel's art deco style is reminiscent of the Roaring Twenties when F.
