CHAMPAGNE, STRAWBERRIES & SWISS HAND MADE CHOCOLATES 29,000 FEET IN THE AIR
The very next day after our wedding in Singapore we boarded a flight to Frankfurt. We were not going to our honeymoon we were heading for a business convention. That was on March 25th 2007. Our honeymoon started a few days later on March 31st from a small …
This past weekend, the trio sadly parted ways but we all had a great time.
On Thursday morning, I flew out of Florence to Cannes to meet my mom and Frances who came to visit. I wanted to spend the weekend on a beach and the south of France seemed a perfect place to do it. The weather was absolutely gorgeous the first …
... and stay somewhere.
Last night had been the last time we would know where we were staying, we had the pleasure of staying somewhere. From now on it's spontaneous and compromising decisions that will get us home. We left the campsite for around 10:30 setting off for St. Tropez, I have never been keen on going here as I knew it would be full of rich, snobby people. We would literally be the poorest people in St.Tropez! You could tell the area had ...
... memory we find the apartment with ease and are soon slipping into our bathers and making our way to the nearest beach. 5pm with the sun still high in the sky you wouldn't be foolish for mistaking it for midday. We spent an hour swimming and sun bathing alongside bronzed Europeans enjoying their summer holidays. Defeated by the intense heat of the sun we decided it was time to retire from the beach and find a nice spot for a mojito. We walked along ...
... of the place is a microcosm of history. The Romans, the Celts, the Saracens, the Moors, the French, Sulaiman and the Ottomans, the Piedmontese family, the St. Martin family, Savoy claimed it at one time. And finally, in 1860, when Savoy reunited it went back to the French. Through all these centuries, the people who lived here fought to hold on to their traditions and this place. When you walk it's streets today you feel that they have finally ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Unforgetable stay in an amazing hotel. The best location overlooking the bay. Big rooms and great oversized furniture. It is not cheap but 100% worth it

Luxury All the way
If you're looking to be pampered and are looking for luxury reserved for celebrities...this is the place to go! From the moment you check in to the moment you check out you know you're royalty atleast for that moment! The rooms are excellent...the bathrooms are huge by European standards. The staff is always willing to go out of their way to help. Expensive hotel but given that we were offered the same rate at the Gray D Albion which is a 2 star at best, we are so glad we switched to the Carlton half way through our trip.
Great rooms + Location, Mediocre service
The location is great. I had a suite on the 6th floor, and sitting out on the balcony is exactly what a relaxing afternoon should be about.
However, the service was mediocre, not what I'd expect from a hotel where rack rates start at 650euro (although always available for much less). For instance, we needed a cot in the living room. We told this to the person at check in, but nothing happened. Then we called housekeeping, and they sent up the cot, but didn't think to bring any additional towels or a robe, or anything else. It took 3 trips for them to get it all in place.
I have stayed in few hotels that I ever felt were worth the extra money. This is one of them. The hotel is the jewel of the city and in the most prime location. Room well maintained, though showing a little wear. Hotel bar nice, can charge drinks to your room, provides nice snacks with your drinks. Provided breakfast was excellent, especially enjoyed it on the outdoor patio. The concierge staff was excellent, making dinner reservations and providing other helpful advice. The private beach was great, some sand, good service there also (you must pay extra for the beach and drinks, etc., but can charge it to your room). If I hit the jackpot I think I might just move into a room at this hotel.....(many famous people have, and the rooms bear their names). I will definately be back to this hotel. I would like to thank the staff for the wonderful experience.
Excellent service, fabulous location but our room was past it's best and needed redecorating however i would go back again. A great experience and really good standard at breakfast.
This hotel is an elegant, old fashioned, luxurious place. If you can afford it, go for it. The rooms are not that modern, but they all have a history. You can read at the doors which famous people have stayed at that room. The locaton is just incredible, and I would gladly stay here again.
My wife and I spent 8 days here in July and were lucky enough to find ourselves here on Bastille Day, July 14th, to see the fabulous fireworks in the harbor and all the docked yachts waiting for them along with the pagentry.
Nice Return Visit
My wife and I returned to the Carlton again this summer. The hotel remains a great location from which to enjoy Cannes, and the service is tops. Some room for improvement is evident on the beach scene (stroll down and see The Martinez for good example of what a top hotel beach scene should look like) and no pool is a drawback. Food/Drink prices are at times insane - regardless of how much money you have. However there are so many areas within walking distance to enjoy outdoor happy hours and great cuisine - seems silly to stay anywhere else other than here.
Stayed here in May, 2004 and enjoyed it immensely. To its credit, the hotel maintained a sense of calm and serenity during the frenetic film festival. The front desk upgraded us to a very beautiful room with a partial ocean view and a large balcony, just because I asked for a complimentary upgrade before arriving. The gym has a beautiful view but is lacking in equipment and facility. Breakfast should be avoided since it is almost $50 for eggs, bacon, coffee, juice and rolls. Overnight parking is $36 which is also high. The public spaces are gorgeous but there is no shopping in the hotel itself; not even a sundries shop to purchase last-minute essentials. The room itself was well-appointed, quiet and had a great climate control. To use the hotel's beach you must pay $25/day; probably smarter to use a free beach on either side. The location is great and the exterior facade is breathtaking.
Stayed there in Dec 03. Great hotel, fab sea view It made a wonderful weekend
A great hotel, with spectacular views. This is THE place to be in Cannes and the service and comfort demonstrate this in every way. If you can afford it, there is no other choice. The only difficult part to swallow is the expense to swim at their beach, even as a geust staying at the hotel.
