Overview

The Review

Stepping into the fabulous Art Deco lobby at Le Palais de la Mediterranee, you immediately get the distinct feeling that hot Parisian designer Sybille de Margerie (who was behind the Hotel de Crillon in Paris and La Palme d’Or in Cannes) got it right in Nice, too.

The decor embodies a sleek modernity that’s unmistakably Art Deco, but instead of the black and silver glam version, there’s a warm insouciance, a bit of humor and comfort to spare. Deco by way of Biedermeier, the woods are warm, the lines are sleek, and the trim is polished brass, but the colors are warm crimson, sunny yellow and that iconic blue of sunny Provence.

Most guestrooms have large balconies with views of the Baie des Anges, the hills or a lovely interior garden. Best of all, the newly redone bathrooms are spacious, with separate tubs and showers. Plus, there are ample dressing areas to prepare for a big night out, and big, comfy beds to tumble into at the end of it.

At lunchtime the “3D” menu is a hit and a bargain (approximately $35 for three courses). Adjacent is the sexy La Pingala lounge bar, which feels a bit Moroccan, with deep couches in spice colors. It offers cocktail concoctions served in miniature Deco-style shakers, with live piano music tinkling in the background.

Head to the third floor for a dip in the heated indoor-outdoor swimming pool. You can lounge inside, but when the weather’s warm snag a seat on the terrace, where you’ll feel blissfully removed from the action on the boulevard below. Aside from modern indulgences, the real treat here is the distinct look back in time, to the glamorous era when the hotel first thrived. Sure, the facade is the only relic of the 1929 design, but from a table in the candy-striped Art Deco casino, you’ll feel as though you’re at a midcentury Riviera party.

Great Hotel in a Great Location
Reviewed 5 days ago

Three thousand four hundred reviews cannot be wrong—it is an outstanding hotel. I can just say what others have already stated. Great hotel in a great location. The outstanding aspect of the hotel is its people. The staff genuinely care for their guests, whether it is the reception, concierge or the restaurant. Keep it up. We will come back again.

The receptionist.
Reviewed 1 week ago

This hotel is just awesome but the main reason I am writing this review is the receptionist lady who checked us in on November 19th, 2018 around 8pm to room 710. Thank you for making our stay simply perfect by not only giving us a great room but for the so surprising and kind awesome gesture of including complimentary breakfast, which was the highlight of our day, every day we were there. Simply delicious. Thanks once again.

Good hotel, but not during high season
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I want to give this hotel a maximum rating but I can't do that since we paid a small fortune for our stay in August. Don't get me wrong, the hotel is super but not for the price we paid. We booked through a Virtuoso agent so we got some perks included such as breakfast and 85€ F&B credit. We got a very nice corner room with terrace though and view to the mountains. Very nice staff and very comfy beds. The breakfast was also delicious.

Pros:
- Comfy bed
- Nice staff
- Access to private beach
- Possibility to book through Virtuoso

Cons:
- Overpriced in high season
- The rooms needs to be refreshed since they look a little bit dated.

Phenomenal Experience
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I just returned from a 5 day holiday at the Hyatt. I have to say that this property is exceptional. It is perfectly located to all the local attractions. What really stood out to me was how courteous and professional all the staff were. I really felt welcomed to the hotel from the moment I arrived. It is a gorgeous property that is very well maintained and clean. I’ll definitely be back.
