Between Cannes and Nice, Hotel Juana is an Art Deco gem on the ritzy Côte d’Azur. Originally built in 1931 and fully revamped in 2006, this five-star property harks back to the golden age of glamour with its classic ivy-covered stucco façade and chic bistro that spills out onto a marble terrace. There are just 40 guestrooms, and the decor is a modern take on ’30s style, with period furniture and colorful geometric shapes depicted in rugs and artworks. All rooms (except Classics) feature a balcony or terrace overlooking the pine-shaded gardens or the sea. Dine on French fare at Bistrot Terrasse and follow it up with a champagne cocktail in the bar. There’s a small fitness center, a hammam and a petite but secluded outdoor pool on-site; or, for a dip in the Med, head to the private beach at Belles Rives, the Juana’s sister hotel. All guests have access to the amenities there, including the piano bar, restaurant and water sports at the beach.
In the Area
Just five miles from Cannes and 16 from Nice, Juan-les-Pins is a chic beach resort on Cap d’Antibes, a lush cape studded with mansions. Its mile-long beach is bordered by a bustling boardwalk, and the resort is home to a number of upscale nightclubs and bars. In July the bars play host to top jazz musicians as part of the annual Jazz à Juan festival. Nearby Antibes, with its narrow cobblestone streets, is the quintessential Mediterranean town. Browse the covered market, stroll around the charming port and make a beeline for the Picasso Museum, home to one of the best collections of the artist’s work in the world.
How to Get There
Stayed just the one night in April.
Warm welcome by staff all English speakers to my relief.
Had a sea view from a beautiful room reaches by one of those classicly designed old lifts you just don’t see anymore where you have to open and close the doors yourself.
Took lunch in their sister hotel by the water and served beautifully cooked but not fussy fish dish.
What always makes a good hotel become an excellent one is the staff. Anyone can make the hotel look clean and tastefully designed but it’s the dedication and pride of the staff that take it that one step up and they’ve certainly achieved that.
So a big thank you to everyone for making it such a special, if brief, stay.
This small luxury hotel in Juan les Pins continues to offer the highest standards of service and comfort.Only five minutes walk from the beach bars shops and restaurants and with a delightful private pool its the best in town
...I’ll get to that. First, the good stuff
This is a 100 year old building with a great look and in very good condition. There’s a subdued elegance about the place and even if you normally go for something modern you should give this a go. All the amenities (most, will get to that below) are modern and the style fits the south of France.
We really liked the location. A couple of hundred yards or so and you’re in the heart of the village, with plenty of shopping and restaurants and bars to chose from. Within three or four hundred yards in the opposite direction you have several fine dining establishments in the other boutique hotels. While this isn’t on the beach, their sister property is and it’s a five minute walk and you have full use of the facilities.
Staff was very good. Attentive, everyone knows your name and they go out of their way. What more can you ask for?
Now...the linens, pillows and mattresses are subpar. Especially the pillows. My wife hasn’t forgotten how lousy those pillows are and I’m pretty sure that alone would preclude us from returning. It’s just unacceptable for a place of this supposed caliber to have you sleep on sorta itchy sheets and definitely lumpy, flat pillows.
The piece de resistance, tho, if the Wi-Fi. Effectively, there is none, it’s so bad. And they know and I guess simply aren’t going to do anything about it. Who thinks that’s acceptable in 2018!? I’m talking about the basics - difficulties in sending and receiving emails sometimes. Posting stuff to social media? Not so fast, my friend. But it comes down to no catching up on current events in the morning. No reading before bed. And it’s bad everywhere, not just in the rooms
So we won’t be back for those reasons. I’m not even sure why I gave 3 stars. If you travel with your own pillows and don’t care about Wi-Fi, this is the place for you
I last stayed in the Juana 39 years ago and little has changed! It is in an excellent position in the centre of town with the beaches a short walk across the square. The hotel has an old fashioned air but with many strange ultra modern paintings and sculptures. Rooms are pleasant enough but could do with freshening up a little. The bathrooms are small and well equipped but the water pressure in my room was dreadful! Very slow and difficult to regulate the temperature. Rooms were spotless and the staff very pleasant and helpful. The buffet breakfast was very good and could be taken in the restaurant or outside on the patio. It also has s small pool and guests can use the Beau Rivage beach for a slightly reduced daily rate. All in all a charming older hotel with a strange decor!
Cute little place. Lovely personalized service. A bit tricky to enter. Only a one way driveway makes traveling by car a bit of challenge. When compared to other more famous hotels in or near Antibes, this one is quite affordable and low-key. It has a sister property that is about 3 blocks away and on the water. This hotel is actually a couple blocks from the shore and nicely situated by a large public park. Nice area to stay. Good rates on the rooms. Pool was in need of some updating though...
