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 was an non-guest with my friends, so we rented the sunbed for 28eu pp. But little did we know, that this beachclub is full with young children. The view is great and the staff is nice but this is not place to relax if you don’t have children. All the children here are wining and the parents aren’t doing anything to keep them quiet - except ordering drinks and food for them. Horrible experience but good to know for other people who’d like to relax here.
We spend 2 nights in the begining of July on our way from Provance, this smelly property absolutely crossed out our perfect provence trip. We booked Prestige room - and get ground flore room faced to garden. Room was rather big, but instead of Bath room - there was some kind on Bath Corner, and separate toilet looking worth then in Nice airport. The dore of the toilet terribly cliped - thats made a lot of discomfort at night. Sliding dors to the garden was not possible to lock we should wait to repaier almost 2 hours to get possiblity close windows in the room. All decoration in room are cheep as well as towels and pillows. But the biggest problem - is discusting severage smell from the bath corner, they try to cross it with flawored oils - what made smell more and more awfull. And Yes I try to check with other rooms and both of them have the same smell in private conversation hotel clerk advices that they relly have this problem.
From other side they have pool - it is so small and there is no handraile in pool entrance, You should use slipery wooden steps to enter the pool. They also have beach - but it's too small, ans sun beds are to close to each other - forgot about some kind of comfort and privasy on the beach. Sunbeds are also cheep and not so comfortable like in most 5* properties. Water is not looking as nice as in other Azur beaches - because it sandwiched beatween 2 yacht ports, and of course there is NO Blue Flag.
The only nice things in this hotel are: stuff - they looks friendly (but it's a must in hospitality buisness) and beach restaurant - it's also nice, but the check is still higher then it might be.
Breackfast is very poor even if You consider it like french continental, by the way - 4th of July the served yogurt with expiration date 5th of July.
So the real price of this property is 300 Euro per night in high season, but they sell it for more then 900, for this rate You can find a lot of very nice alternatives in the are of cote de azur.
We spent three nights at Cap d’Antibes at the end of May and our visit was a complete rave. The rooms are chic and comfortable. But the staff is what makes this a world class hotel. Often beach hotels that are five star rest on their architecture or their amenities. While “The Cap” has both (including a wonderful little pool and private beach that are perfect) its the excellent staff that really made our visit special.
From the moment we arrived we were treated as special guests. The front desk was super helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They were obviously dedicated to making sure we had a terrific holiday.
Our room was facing the garden behind the pool, but it had a lovely terrace and private garden area. The bathroom and dressing room/closet were lavish and generously sized. We were welcomed personally by the Manager as Relais & Châteaux 5-C members and were greeted by a bottle of rosé and a terrific souvenir beach basket that we will use again and again.
The beach attendants, bar staff and restaurant staff were all uniformly well trained and spoke at least three languages. The breakfast was fresh and tasty but not over the top. Lunch in the classic beachside restaurant was also delicious and worth doing again even if not a guest in the hotel.
Though it is the playground for Russian oligarchs and other jet setters, the staff made us feel like honored guests in our own right. Such a pleasure. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property to anyone seeking a relaxing holiday on the Cote d’Azure.
Spent four days here. There was not one thing you could fault. The staff all went above and beyond their duties to ensure you had a magnificent stay. Pool and beach spotless with extremely hard working staff. Our room was kept beautifully clean at all times. Marc, the concierge, was incredibly helpful as were his colleagues on reception. We will most definitely stay here again.
Myself, my wife and our 2 year old son have just stayed for 2 nights at the end of a 10 day holiday in the South of France.
- Reception staff welcome, check in and car valet service are excellent. Reception staff in general are excellent throughout the day
- Location and view out to sea
- Very personalised feel with staff knowing your name as you walk around the hotel
- Very accommodating of children at dinner in the evening, staff went out of their way by bringing toys etc
- Beach staff are very helpful and tentative
- Bedroom decor and cleanliness
- The food is also of high standard
Room for improvement...
- Beach is too busy and you are packed in like sardines. There is literally no space between sun beds and getting to the sea has to be a planned journey. Also, to have to pay for a front row sun bed is not acceptable given the cost of staying here. Just not very relaxing
- No gym! Again, how can this be, it is a given these days. I had to walk 10 mins to Fitlane in Juan Les Pins
- Breakfast is officially available from 7am. On our last morning we arrived at 7am as we had our flight to catch and breakfast was far from set up. We had to ask multiple times for almost everything, even down to milk and tea spoons. It took until 7.30 to set up properly with very little sense of urgency or care from the staff. In fact we were made to feel as an in convenience. Not acceptable. Breakfast was also basic for the standard of hotel. Very little imagination.
- Whilst children are welcome, at times, it can feel difficult to accommodate their needs. For example, we chose to feed our little boy his tea at roughly 5.30pm each day. This felt like a struggle as the restaurant was set up for dinner yielding few places to sit, coupled with very limited menu options at this time. There was never an offer of a high chair and similar to breakfast on our last day there was a feeling of inconvenience
In summary this beach resort has the potential to be amazing but let’s itself down on some issues, some of which are easy fixes.
