Cap d’Antibes Beach Hotel Cap d’Antibes
The hint is in the title. The resort has a Cap d’Antibes speech, which means that you may see Beyoncé at breakfast, along with your neighbor may well be Jay Z (or really Bernie Madoff, that formerly maintained a land nearby). In addition, in socialist France, in which the shore is publically owned, it is nigh-on hopeless to discover a toes-in-the-sand resort. Making the silky shore here so unique, especially because its heart with infinity pool has been rebuilt.
Style & personality
Hotel USPs are sunlight and service. With lack, each guest is fulfilled by general director Franck Farneti then escorted to their area through arcades decked with tropical plants. Every conceivable distance — personal balconies, people breakfast terraces — soaks up the Cap d’Antibes microclimate, bursting clouds trapped from the Alpes-Maritime slopes beyond. An instance in point is that the amazing yet casual foyer, where guests can serve themselves a glass of San Pellegrino because the Mediterranean twinkles invitingly past the full reception windows. Obviously, rooms scream suntans and champagne buckets, maybe not buttoned-up small business course, and come complete with sweep-away-sand tiled flooring and recliners to get a post-beach snooze.
Service & amenities
Staff are equally as helpful as they are fine. You do not park your vehicle in the Cap d’Antibes Beach Hotel, it is unloaded then whisked off through the resort’s concierge service. The opinion out of the beachside infinity pool chooses superyachts bobbing offshore. Provided that you do not mind setting a business center with fax machine to get outside massages from the lapping Mediterranean, you are in luck.
Large and bold. The 15 deluxe rooms were styled by Sybille de Margerie (who’d the Mandarin Oriental in Paris). The best end suites include wall murals, chromotherapy showers and whirlpool tubs. All types of space contain private terraces and ample storage area, and all are a 30-second walk out of each resort amenity, in the reception to the shore. Six suites and rooms have been designed by architects Sarich & Goujon, who contemporised Nice’s grand dame Hotel Negresco.
Food & beverage
Wow. Michelin-starred dinners are purveyed by Nice-born Nicolas Rondelli, who learnt his trade from the French Riviera’s archipelago of fine restaurants. Restaurant Les Pêcheurs is appropriate — possibly a color too so. If you can spare four hours to get a ship gastronomique, afterward Rondelli’s signature $125 (#105) and $150 (#126) menus arrive laced with ingenious items such as asparagus baked in a ceramic clay in Vallauris, the neighboring pottery city beloved of Picasso. Informality unites with average prices at shore restaurant Le Cap. Think tuna tataki rolls ($30/#25) and Josper oven-grilled lemongrass gambas ($32/p27).
Breakfast is a prime – if not too abundant – choice of posh yoghurts, Bayonne ham, Corsican cheese, shelled nuts and sufficient crispy patisseries to take you through till lunch.
Value for cash
Double rooms from $390 (#328) in low season; and out of $590 (#496) at large. Breakfast, breakfast and lounger utilize contained. Free Wi-Fi.
Accessibility for guests with disabilities?

Totally. The high staff to guest ratio means there is a grin waiting around every corner. Cots are free, and children aged below five can sleep with parents, whereas an additional bed can be wheeled to your package for $25 (#21). Then of course there’s the shore.
