Cap D’Antibes Beach Hotel offers a more low-key, contemporary alternative in the posh seaside town of Cap D’Antibes. A starkly modern building anchors this small resort property, located on the former grounds of a beach club noted for welcoming Hollywood icons like Sophia Loren. Rooms are decorated with artwork depicting marine life, and many have private patios or terraces with water views. The restaurant and beach are see-and-be-seen spots.
In the Area
Made famous by jet-setting expats like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, today Cap D’Antibes is a magnet for royalty, festival bigshots, and the international style set. If stilettos on the beach isn’t your thing, aim to stay during the off season, when the madcap atmosphere mellows out, or head to more relaxed seaside towns nearby. Cap D’Antibes is also well positioned for day trips to Nice, Cannes and Monaco.
How to Get There
I struggled to rate this hotel- I think it’s between average and good. We are doing a road trip from Nice to Cassis and further- and this was our first stop after several days in Nice. It is a lovely location, it’s quiet and the beach has clean soft sand and small waves. There is a good energy around the hotel, I like the concept design- brutalist modern decor with the oversized fish motif and the fun colors of the furnishings. The staff is entertaining and sharp and attentive at reception, in the restaurant and at the beach club.
In my experience modern decor shows cracks quickly- the furniture seemed ready for cleaning and re- conditioning. We were not bothered- it’s the end of the summer after a long season.
The ground floor room we stayed in was a problem, 115 is good size but it smells terrible. There has been(ongoing?)leaking or seepage and it is unpleasant. We noticed the smell when we entered the room- just a quick whiff of drains/urine/damp. And then the overpowering scent of room conditioner. We generally ask for scented items to be removed from our room- and set this device outside, turned on the air and went to the pool. The smell was more apparent when we returned- we opened the door,dressed and went out. When returned the room smelled enough for us to start really looking around- and then we saw the stains- on both sides of WC door and on the ceiling in the entry hall, we discussed what to do- and as we were there one night only chalked it up to bad luck and inattentive staff. We left after breakfast (Good-better than basic, no eggs or meat on the buffet but can be ordered, coffee service disastrous wait) and mentioned to the front desk staff our observations and experience. I later took the time to email the director and the quality control of the chain- I hope it helps. But for now do not take rooms 114 or 115.
My Wife and I have just returned from the most amazing short break at the Cap D’Antibes Beach Hotel. On arrival, we were met by Celine Risso , she definitely set the tone for what was to be the most memorable short break my wife and I have ever been on. The hotel itself was absolutely spotless and we were blown away when we entered our room. The contemporary style of decor and the facilities we had at our hands was simply phenomenal. Our room was on the ground floor and we were lucky to have our very own private garden with double sun loungers and a stylish seating area. All the staff throughout our stay were absolutely fantastic. They were very courteous and always at hand to cater for our needs whether it was in the restaurant or on the private beach located meters away from our room. They food in the restaurant again was faultless.
We could not recommend the Cap D’Antibes Beach Hotel enough. From the minute we walked in, to the second we walked out. It was simply amazing. We very much are looking forward to our next return, hopefully in the very near future.
