Built in 1990, the four-star Ambassadeur consists of 221 rooms and several facilities including a bar, restaurant, conference facilities, two pools and a fitness centre. The sheer size of the hotel alone is unusual for Antibes Juan-les-Pins as most hotels are smaller 'charm hotels' or boutique affairs. Upon entering the hotel, the spacious lobby is impressive for its glass atrium that allows natural light to fill the room. At ground level, a wide mezzanine overlooks a central interior courtyard with a cluster of palm trees reflected in the nearby mirrored walls. A panoramic elevator transports guests to all six floors of accommodation, while in the hotel corridors, the carpets spell the lyrics to the Louis Armstrong classic 'What a Wonderful World,' reiterating Antibes' jazz-loving roots.
Below the lobby's mezzanine, guests will find a small fitness room equipped with Technogym gear, a small but heated indoor pool inside a mock cave with rock walls and ceiling, and the business facilities including a whopping 18 meeting rooms. Towards the rear of the building is where the hotel's bar and restaurant are located, the latter serves meals on the outdoor terrace during the summer. A few steps away is the large outdoor pool in the form of a flower (or four leaf clover depending on your imagination!), with a palm tree stood at each corner.
