On the breakfast note: it was a little confusing. We were told at check-in that there are two types of breakfast: the buffet breakfast in the restaurant on top floor for 27 eu/ person and continental breakfast in the lobby bar/ lounger for 15 eu/person. Not sure what constitutes continental in their mind, but it was a coffee and a croissant for 15eu! and the lady at the bar when asked about breakfast sent us to the restaurant anyway. Very confusing and expensive! While I understand that the hotel is truly a luxury one and luxury doesn't come cheap, I also think that luxury s/b more subtle in terms of money. It ultimately felt like money pulling for every single little service. The only things that were free were wifi and I guess pool (though we haven't used it so I can't guarantee). The parking was additional 25eu though it belonged to the hotel> It's just the overall experience with the front desk didn't felt luxurious. We arrived at the hotel around 6:30 (plenty of time to have room ready), and mind you the room was already pre-paid for few days before. We were exhausted from a long ride from Cannes and wanted to finally rest, but it them very long to check us in. Also the amount of security information and documentation they required was a bit ridiculous: they needed both passport's to take copies (not just the person's who booked room), took additional 100 eu security charge on the card and just took forever to find a room for us that was available. Finally when we got the room it had two twin beds (for a married couple) and I definitely requested one double or queen. We didn't change it though, because of the view.
Anyway, just wish service was a little more welcoming and quick.
It's a beautiful hotel with a gorgeous view of Vieux port. The room was spacious and well designed. The bathroom was stocked with deliciously smelling Hermes products. And I finally had hair conditioner in the hotel in France for the first time this trip :) There were two sets of bathrobes and slippers, which was a nice touch.
And again the view! Make sure get a room with a view! (no pun intended). Breakfast was rather expensive (27eu per person), but the service was good and was delicious and abundant.
