    The outdoor pools need to be updated. They are old and rundown and not up to the standard of the area and the hotel price. And, like most hotels in France, there was no real gym.

    We chose this hotel because of the stunning photographs of the pools and ocean access. But honestly they left much to be desired. The tiny salt water pool was small and bleak, the downstairs ocean front one was even bleaker and unappealing. The ocean access was just a cement dock. The hotel itself is beautiful, our room was large and beautiful, cleaning staff were great, and most of the staff were lovely (aside from a rather sourly one). But their amenities were so unappealing that we would go every day to one of the nearby public beaches, which were stunning and had great water access. So, for mich much less money than we paid, we could have instead got a lovely apartment somewhere in Cap Ferrat and had the same experience. Which is disappointing.

    This hotel is claiming to be 5 star (joke) & charging over 700 Euros per night. This is complete 'rip off'. I had breakfast included but was charged extra for eggs & a bottle of water, absolute disgrace!! If you want a 'lie in' in the morning, forget it, after 8am the cleaning starts with small 'dumb waiter' elevators being banged in the hallway constantly. The hotel is presentable but old & a bit shabby in places, especially round the pool & changing rooms etc.

    Not a lot for the 5 star status !!

    The rooms with sea/port views are lovely but only about 60% of these more expensive rooms do not have the view spoilt by big pines. Check room view before booking. We also had to move rooms as heat mixer for shower and bath was broken and only gave lukewarm water. Not what we expect from a 5* hotel.

    The price points a little too high, even allowing for the standard, facilties and location. Atmosphere was a a little too reserved for us..a little appropiate background music in the lounge, bar and beach club would enhance the ambience.

    One of those more traditional, chic , no gimmick hotels that quietly ensures you feel special,welcome and valued.

    Not having a proper shower room, the bathroom was very spacious with only a bath. If you wanted a shower you had to stand in the bath with a silly curtain to pull around the free standing bath, this made it very cramped and awkward. The money we paid for our room and being 5 star, I would expect a separate shower.

    Good location and in a nice setting.
