How to Get There
A great Hotel good staff welcoming when late arrivalRestaurant great food to build up choice may be needed in future but good service and qualityOverall facilities excellent with pool and spa available
Enjoyed our stay at La Vague and considered it a great value, given the comfort and excellent amenities which included an outside tennis court and patio. Staff was friendly and helpful. Checkin was easy and allowed us to leave our luggage until checking time. We did not have dinner or use their bar, but their breakfast was excellent with high quality products and great variety.
After spending time in the bustling Nice area my wife and I retreated a bit higher up in the hills near St.Paul De Vence...discovered this hotel online which was easier than finding it in person...definitely need a good GPS system...but it's a nice accommodation which tries to be an all-in-one-resort...staff is friendly and accommodating and speaks English...room was clean and while sufficient in size it was not overly spacious...we were down a level so had a patio that looked out on the tennis court but still felt a bit like we were below ground...pool was very nice...the attached restaurant advertises as fine dining and they do try...food was average and actually I'd say overpriced but you are a bit isolated so more or less captive unless you want to drive into Vence which is closest community...it's fine for one night but I would not stay more than that to tour this area.
Well situated for day trips in the area. (Venice, Grasse, Monaco, Nice) Close to many small towns and great restaurants. Quiet place to come back to in the evening. Would recommend to others and would stay again.
A group of us ate here and all have raved about the food ever since. We had the taster menu washed down with some wonderful Rose. The food was beautiful, full of fantastic flavours and colours and couldn’t be faulted. The setting on the other hand could. The hotel is an old conference centre. It feels dated and certainly lacked any ambience on the night we were there. The staff were friendly and welcoming but hover too attentively at the table.
