    Historical Traveler Reviews Majestic Barriere Cannes

    Grand Old Hotel

    from

    We had a most pleasant stay at this fine hotel. Our room had a great view of the sea. Location on the Croisette was exactly what we were looking for. If you're on a tight budget this probably isn't the one, but if you're looking for an upscale traditional hotel with great service you will enjoy the Majestic.

    Disappointment, small outdated rooms

    from

    Save your money and stay somewhere else. Better yet, avoid Cannes altogether. We found the outlying areas to be more charming. Our first rooms was very small and had a horrible stench, after switching rooms we received a second room that was still stuffy and had electronic blinds and no view. Very few rooms in this hotel actually offer a sea view based on the way the hotel is construced. Service was average. Carpet on stairs of hotel literally had tears in it as well as some of the upholstery in our room. A colleague of mine also stayed at this hotel and had to switch after finding hundreds of ants on the floor.

    Not all it's cracked up to be

    from

    We stayed here over Valentine's for a week. The foyer and bar areas are indeed splendid and palatial, but the room we had was small and pokey, with little room to move around. Our electronic window shutter was broken and was never repaired despite numerous requests during our week long stay. Also, considering the price we paid for our trip, we really grudged all the "extras", which amounted to just about everything other than toiletries. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room, and a king's ransom for any delivered. No breakfast included, and again an extortionate fee for a pretty basic and unexciting breakfast. Sandwiches ordered by the pool cost about 20 each (!!!!). There was also no iron in the room, so if you wanted to have anything ironed.....yes, you guessed it....extra. I had one skirt and one dress ironed and this cost about 30. I have no problem paying more for quality and service, but I think this hotel tries to take the Mickey a bit by charging high rates in the first place then charging more for anything else, which in most hotels in the UK, at this price, would come as standard.

    De-Lightful Barriere

    from

    My wife and I were adequately impressed with this hotel. Although initially accomodated in a smallish room due to availability (compared with 5 star hotel room sizes we are accustomed to in South Africa), we were genuinely impressed when accomodated in the 'best suite' (must have been my wife's charm), sea-facing and with 'open' balcony. The service and attendance of the staff were impeccable in our experience, from first greeting to bidding us bon voyage, and which really contributed to making our first visit to the famed city-of-light a truly de-lightful experience. Sure, 'de-lightful' may not be a wanton description preferred by the Grand, an establishment frequented by great stars and dignitaries alike, but the staff's sheer professionalism, hospitality and sincere interest expressed in our well-being, made this a 'come-back-for-more' experience for us.

    NIce Hotel

    from

    I spent 2 weeks here in June 2002 right after Film Festival got rate of 172 Euros including breakfast buffet. They did charge for pillows at Pool which upset me as I watched people walk in off the street and just sit on chairs others had left. Manager refused to turn on Pool heater as he didn;t like all the children congregating at the pool. Manger was Arrogant, but Carlo the concierge was great he rememebred my Mothers birthday and had roses and a scarf waitng in our room for her. All imn all a great expereince for her 60 th birthday

    Don't expect too much. It's only the name.

    from

    Don't expect too much. It's a typical grand hotel, but if you do not afford the expensive rooms, you'll get a quite small chamber without any sign of luxury. As other reviewers said, everthing else there is quite expensive and mostly not worth the money (except you like bad drinks on expensive chairs at the pool). At all, the staff was quite arrogant: when I arrived with my car, they didn't ask me whether they can help me, but rather "what do you want here?". "I thought, I'll stay here for a night". "Ah, okay, sorry". Not very convincing.

    A few last words: Try to avoid Cannes at all - at least, don't stay there. It's only the name. If there is no festival, half of the restaurants are closed, the beaches are expensive or completely overcrowded. Only take a walk at the Croisette, look at the yachts - and move on. Cannes is not really exciting. Rather stay at smaller hotels around this area.

    Too many extras

    from

    Beautiful hotel, wonderful location, but for the price you pay you wouldn't expect to pay for using the swimming pool or the gym.

    Majestic is wonderful (but Cannes...)

    from

    Stayed at the Majestic 4 nights in July 03. The hotel is wonderful and the staff is eager to please (except for breakfast, skimpy and overpriced at Fouquets). It's the lap of luxury, a shame it's wasted in a city that rests on the laurels of the film festival. Not much intersting to see or do. Not convenient as home base, either. As for the hotel, it is exceedingly comfortable, one of the best in the world. I cannot find fault with this wonderful property. Enjoy yourself!

    Nice but lots of extra fees

    from

    The Majestic is a lovely hotel with very friendly staff. Given the price, you do not expect to be paying so much for the extras. For example, to go to the beach and get a mattress, expect to pay an additional 19 Euros per person per half day. Also, a chair by the pool will cost the same. I was also surprised to see an ancient hair dryer in the room. On the positive side, the hotel is very central and surprisingly quiet.

    I expected more...

    from

    It is a beautiful hotel, but not the "majestic" I expected. For a hotel that is renowned, I expected more, while there is nothing that really distinguishs it from any other five star hotel (other than the view - if you have one!). One thing that really frustrates is the elevators, there are two small ones to service everyone, and they take forever to come.

    It was a very hot and sunny day. We had late lunch and drove into Cannes where we were staying for a couple of nights at a rented flat with seaview.

HISTORY By the 2nd century BC the Ligurian Oxybii established a settlement here known as Aegitna. Historians are unsure what the name means. The area was a fishing village used as a port of call between the Lérins Islands. In 69 AD it became the scene of violent conflict between the troops of Othos and Vitellius. In the 10th century the town was known as Canua. The name ...

We spent about 4 hours at this beach we all had a little nap which was great. Mopedding actually makes you a little tired. After getting our tan on we decided to head back home for dinner. On the way home I put my go pro on the extendable pole and set it to take a photo every 30 seconds, got some good ones, some not so good. Made it home ...
