Historical Traveler Reviews AC Ambassadeur Antibes Juan-les-Pins
Myself and 3 colleagues stayed at this hotel for a business trip from the 13 nov and then moved to the Meridien as we were appalled at the service.
My husband and I stayed at the Ambassadeur for 5 nights for a conference.
Not our first choice hotel but a decent back up for this tiny seaside community. The website touts it as more modern and elegant than it really is. Some parts of the hotel have been renovated -- such as the attractive outdoor pool area, parts of the lobby and the restuarants. However, the over chlorinated indoor pool and the small rooms with their iffy decor and unflattering views of the town left much to be desired. It was obvious that the hotel caters to business professionals as there seemed to be a siminar virtually every day we were there. To its credit, the hotel has a nice atrium, and a pretty decent staff. Also, it's very close (5 mins walk) to the narrow sliver of sand that is the beach and the center of Juan Les Pins where all the hip shops and restuarants are. (Speaking of restaurants, you must check out Cafe Sweet -- it has great food!). If it's an elegant hotel experience you are looking for, you may perfer hotel Juana (our first choice -- but alas no vacancies!!) Overall, although it's not a 5 star hotel, it seemed much better than other hotels in the area. Would love to go back to Juan Les Pins but am not sure I'd stay here again.
Considering what you get at this hotel -- I wouldn't give it the 4 stars they claim or the 3 stars Expedia claims. Juan-les-Pins is an OK location, but Nice or Cannes are nearby and have a much, much better vibe.
I stayed at the Ambassadeur for two nights in a standad room for less than 100 Euro. The room was of average size for the Cote D'Azur, with somewhat sparse furnishings. The location is very good, although you must walk a few blocks to the beach. They have an arrangement for a small discount at a private beach, but it is quite a walk.
We stayed at the Ambassadeur for 2 nights in July 05. We got a great online deal for this hotel, which I highly recommend looking into. This is a large hotel that seems to cater to the business traveler a bit. But they were extremely professional and helpful, even recommending a terrific restaurant off the beaten path where we had dinner on the beach with our feet in the sand. They were also very good when my parents were unhappy with their room, about trying to find them another room that would better suit them.
Nice hotel, but a bit busy
We stayed at this hotel 2 weeks ago and were pleased with it. The common areas were very atrractive but the rooms were quite small and generically decorated. They have a very nice pool, but at times we had difficulty in obtaining towels. One problem that we had was that a convention was being held there the entire week (the convention center is immediately adjacent to the hotel) and the common areas were exceedingly crowded much of the time. Also, as the usually logical French have not yet discovered the health hazards of tobacco, the stench of cigarettes was overpowering (but not in the non-smoking rooms). The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and usually were able to communicate with us in English and my pigeon-French.
My husband and I spent a week at this hotel. We were spoilt from the start. Beautifully clean, large bedrooms, wonderful breakfasts and the most chic beach we've been on. Nothing was to much trouble for anyone. Lunch at the beach restaurant was always great, we recommend the salads!
Turn down service at night was thoughtful as were the two little chocolates on the pillow!
We would recommend this hotel to anyone and in fact we will be going back next year.
Love Juan-les-Pins: Great Value, Clean, Good Location
First off, I would absolutely recommend Juan-les-Pins as an alternative to other Cote d'Azur resort areas. It is very lively, has excellent restaurants, and extremely friendly locals. We found J.L.P to be much cheaper than Cannes, with more to do! The Ambassadeur Hotel really surprised us - we paid $180/night (June 04/Expedia) and expected an average hotel. The rooms were so clean & spacious and the staff was very accomodating. The beach is a good 5-10 minute walk away but, you are close to town and there is plenty of shops along the way!
Ambassadeur is A-Ok
I stayed at the Ambassadeur for five nights in February 2004. I had a one bedroom with a balcony overlooking the pool with palm trees very comfy and quiet. I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. I needed a power adaptor for my laptop, I got a loan, no problem, however, I could not connect to a phone line from my room.
Provide a bed turn down service (no chocolate *smile*) and I found the rooms very clean and spacious. Indoor pool and fitness center I did not use so I won't include in rating. I had trouble with my remote and TV.
Otherwise, I would recommend.
