"Visited for brunch at Le Grill by boat. The Cote d'Azur of your dreams!!"
Stunningly beautiful location, stunningly beautiful landscape, perfect perch over the sea for lunch/brunch. If arriving by boat, as we were, expect a super-easy and smooth transfer to the dock (and back). The food and service are superb. And don't forget to dress for press! Beautiful people abound, and, blessedly, the prices keep the cruise ship folks away ;)
"A life changing experience"
Well thinking back, this is the sort of place that leaves a lasting impression upon you, a lot of the time you're simply agog at the surroundings, the service levels and of course the cost, it was 2009 when i was fortunate enough to stay at the Hotel Du Cap and i still speak about it now, the clientele can only be described as super rich, you really have to be to stay there unless like me you were fortunate enough to save up and come into some additional funds for, what will be for me, a once in a lifetime experience. We flew into Nice and stayed at a very place there for a night, had a beach club with an absolute legend of a bar tender, lovely looking filly too, buts that's another story. Upon arrival our typically "South of France" taxi driver dropped us at the wrong end of the Hotel, there are two parts you see, the Eden Roc and the Hotel Du cap, the Du cap is the more traditional part i think, so i asked very politely where the other part was after being told that the local taxi drivers were " Merd", french for a little tardy i think, any way along comes a golf buggy, loads up the cases and then puts myself and the better half on the back for a little ride up the hill to main residence. I never saw my luggage after that as it was delivered to the room, unpacked, hung up and put away with the cases neatly stowed, amazing !!. our room was a definitely not the best in the house as it was located directly beneath the hotel bar, but was roomy, comfortable and had everything a five star hotel should have on arrival. The hotel grounds have lots to do, they have a falconry on site as well as the usual tennis courts and an amazing pool cut into the rock face, truly magnificent along with the solarium with enough sunbeds for a whole regiment if required. There is a private area with cabanas for the use of selected guests ( yes those with more cash) but the service from the chap in charge is legendary, he has been with the hotel for over 25 years and i must add is probably the nicest man with no neck i've ever spoken with. so the place is magnificent, the staff are absolutely the best in the world so what's left ' Well actually its the food, the outdoor restaurant at the Eden Roc is a short and very pleasant stroll from the main hotel but my god that was a walk I will remember forever, having ordered our special meal before we arrived, some two months before we arrived to be accurate, we were seated by the rail overlooking the sea and the three super yachts moored a respectable distance from the hotel, and served the very best meal I've ever eaten, 24 hr slow roasted shoulder of lamb with a cornucopia of varying do dabs to go with it, too much for two but we did our best, deserts from the trolley were works of art in chocolate and cherries, I for one didn't want to disturb the layout of the trolley as it was simply superb, but of course it would have been rude to ignore the patisserie chefs sterling efforts so i dug in, as full as i was I just had too. so the place is incredible, the staff magnificent, the food is akin to nothing you will ever have anywhere else on the planet with the possible exception of the George V on a good day. Just in case the Hotel staff read this review i must " fess up" yes i am the odd English chap with the battered straw hat who spoke in pretty bad " Franglais" but endeared myself to you all by hiring a mini moke and then drove off giggling and waving at the very loud American chap whose vintage Corvette Stingray simply would not start. I hope to be back one day but two lottery wins in one lifetime may be a little too much to wish for, my advice is sell the children and go, it simply has to be worth it :-)
This is the supposedly the "it" place to be in Cannes. Most importantly if you are not a repeat customer don't expect to get anything close to a 5 star service. The room was fine. The food, in my opinion, was average. There service was even worse. You will be standing there waiting for somebody to seat you, but they just pass you without a second glance. Even when they finally seat you they don't even come by to take your order until you ask. You basically have to plead for everything. Getting a seat at the pool is difficult as well. If you are not in the front two rows of the pool you might as well be sitting in a empty parking lot with lawn chairs. It is only until you keep tipping that you work your way up to the front. We have stayed at some of the top hotels in the world and there is no excuse for such horrible service. Maybe its just how things are done here. In my opinion they don't seem to care about their new customers. We made the best of it but lets just say I have no plans to come back any time soon.
"Very exquisite,excellent service"
The location and service is excellent! Swimming pool and the lunch at eden rock terrace is amazing. If you stay during film festival you might have to compromise on the arrangement they have for the event they hold in this hotel,but you get to watch and be around beautiful and interesting crowd.
"Old school European elegance in its best"
Stayed 5 nights during my honeymoon last August. What I liked about this hotel is that our stay was exactly as I expected, old school european luxury hotel experience. Attention to details, discreet and efficient service, incredible grounds (exactly as you see in the pictures), spacious room and bathroom (even if you are staying in the "basic" ones, which based on my experience would be presented as suites in some equally expensive luxury hotels). A special note to the bars (both Bellini and the Champagne Lounge) and the barmen. I spent some time every night at the bar waiting my wife to get ready for dinner and had the chance to try several different cocktails, all of which perfectly executed! Very helpful and nice concierge team too. We also had a memorable dinner at the restaurant (Eden Roc). The only wrinkle to the service is the staff at the car entrance gate. Always unfriendly (even after realizing that you actually are a hotel guest), making you feel like an intruder trying to sneak in. At one occasion we had our car searched (truck open), what certainly does not match with the personal service you get elsewhere in the hotel. At a certain point, we actually found it kind of funny and joked about it everytime we arrived at the hotel. There are a lot of remarks in the reviews about the prices charged by the hotel, but if you consider all that is offered (the grounds, the service, the spacious rooms, the pool, the tennis clay courts, sauna etc) and compare to other top hotels in Europe, my conclusion is that the Eden Roc experience is well worth it. My goal now is to come back every year until I can be granted the right to get a front row chair by the pool (that is where you wanna get your sun tanning)!
