If travelling to hotel by hire car from Nice you do need to put address as well as zip code in to sat nav, Just putting zip code not good enough as takes you centre Cannes La Bocca. All facilities excellent which includes food in restaurant and outdoor area of hotel.
Best to walk beaches and restaurants in area as if travel by car you can miss quite a lot. Half hour walk sees you get to most places. Beaches excellent all along corniche. Beach towels provided daily by hotel which is a lovely touch of service.
From hotel by car, easy to get on to A8 which is main motorway to visit different parts of S of F.
Don't be put off by where hotel is situated. Not far as said to beaches and restaurants. August is for families as other months might be more business.
Nice Hotel, pity about the restaurant menu.
The refurbishment seems to have improved the hotel from previous visits, however, the menu in the restaurant is very limited and does not compare, either by content or cost, with those on offer elsewhere in the village, all of which are within 300 meters. This is a pity because we did not eat in the hotel this year whereas 4 years ago we ate in the restaurant several times during our stay.
Overall this was pretty good. My wife and I went with our two kids aged 5 and 3 at the end of May
The location requires a car. Its over the "hill" from downtown La Napoule.
That said its close to the beach where you can park (if your early) and 15 mins from Cannes. Its a greeat base to explore the hill towns - Tourettes being a fave with the kids.
The room: There are two levels - a double upstairs with air con and two singles downstairs in the living room( this comes out of the sofa but we kept as beds all week). There is also a dinning area for 4 , kitchen and bathroom with bath and shower. Its clean but a little faded.
Kitchen is fine it lacks an oven but is equipped well. It has a microwave which may well have been able to be used as an oven as well but our ineptness probably prevented us from using. Room was comfortable if not spectacular- it is good value in this part of the world.
The hotel has two pools both unheated but temperature just about OK. There is also a restaurant on site which looked well used but we did not visit.
Locally there is a large supermarket a couple of minutes drive away and some decent restuarants in La Napoule itself.
It suited us as it meant after the kids went to bed we had a seperate area to relax and converse. We would recommend . Clientelle is mainly French and Italian
Stayed 3 nights Sept 2014 whilst touring French Rivera by motorcycle. Attached to hotel is multi-story car park, insecure 24/7. Bit dubious about leaving bike in said car park crammed next to scooters - but was ok. Hotel outlook not great, but was just somewhere for us to sleep. Couple restaurants and small shopping centre opposite hotel. Restaurants in France do not serve food till 7pm. Quite a nice walk along river very close to hotel and 90 min walk into Cannes. Local airfield nearby which is quite busy with air traffic as is main toll road (motorway), although in fairness did not here either from within hotel. Toilet in our room broke on 2nd day and hotel staff immediately moved us to another room without any fuss.
In submission cannot really go wrong with Ibis as stayed in 3 of their hotels whilst on our two week tour of France & Italy, however they don't offer best value for money. We booked day before, but if you shop around before hand you will probably find similar and save some Euros.
Had a great holiday-people were very friendly,very relaxing atmosphere can't wait to go back and would highly recommend it.not suitable if you want lots of late nights drinking and partying.Evening entertainment was perfect for us.
