Amy Adejokun Section editor

One of a handful of five star hotels in Antibes Juan-les-Pins, the Juana impresses with its stylish art deco architecture and interior design, as well as its discreet but professional service. The Juana underwent major renovations in 2006 to reduce its room total from 46 to 40, allowing for more spacious rooms, and was awarded its fifth star in 2010. The Juana is also a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

    Location 8.84 /10

    Overlooking the Gould Pine Grove, the Juana is situated where Juan-les-Pins meets the Cap d'Antibes. It is easy walking distance to the waterfront and the promenade and only a stone's throw away from the boutiques, bars and restaurants of Juan-les-Pins. Nice Côte d'Azur airport is about a 25 minute drive away.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The contemporary art deco theme seen throughout the hotel extends to its 35 rooms and 5 suites. Most rooms feature a small balcony, or for those executive rooms on the first floor, a spacious, furnished terrace. Deluxe rooms at the front of the hotel on the 3rd, 4th and 5th floors boast sea views, while those superior/executive rooms on the 1st and 2nd floors overlook Gould Pine Grove, the charming pine tree park. Classic rooms and junior suites have a "city view" while the suites claim the best views in the house, those over the bay and the distant Lérins Islands. On the whole, accommodation is quite spacious and most importantly clean and comfortable. Rooms are decorated with geometric carpets and feature either British sycamore or mahogany furnishings. The sleek and smooth lines are a result of the modern twist on the rooms' art deco styling. Colour schemes run from eggshell, to oyster blue and orange-red.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The hotel dates back to the 1930's and features a lovely facade typical of the period. The sober elegance of the spacious lobby is lifted with delicate but elaborate teardrop light fittings that are also found in the neighbouring bar and restaurant. With high ceilings and lack of clutter, the common areas are very spacious for a boutique hotel of its size. The ornate Stigler elevator dates back to the 1930's, and together with the gilded wrought iron staircase railings, add a bit of vintage glamour. A decent sized outdoor pool (heated from April onwards) can be found roadside, somewhat hidden from view by stone walls and manicured shrubs. Meanwhile, other facilities include a small but bright fitness room kitted out with Techno Gym gear (bike, step machine, treadmill) and adjacent, a small Turkish bath and massage room for one. Being a five-star hotel we were somewhat disappointed with the drab massage room free of any decoration.

    Food and drink 9.70 /10

    Continuing the sleek 1930's theme, the bar and restaurant at the Juana are situated on the ground floor and accessed via the lobby. Café Marianne provides a stylish setting for a drink or a meal, helped by its charming paved courtyard lined with gardens, shady palm trees and a water fountain. The casual-chic restaurant attracts a mix of hotel guests and well-dressed locals for its delicious, fresh, Provencal cuisine. There is plenty of seating inside too, with contemporary furnishings in oyster blue and chocolate brown and immaculately dressed tables. A baby grand sits beside the well stocked bar. Large windows overlook the terrace but the window you need to be looking through is the one on the patisserie cabinet, found at Café Marianne's entrance. Head pastry chef Jean-Michel Llorca creates veritable works of art and they are even available to takeaway. There are daily menus that offer good value for money (especially for the French Riviera) such as the three course lunch/dinner set menu for 29 euros (£25.50), or the very reasonable two course set lunch menu (starter + main, or main + dessert) with a glass of wine for 19 euros (£16.70). We sampled a starter of petits barbajuans niçois (fried ravioli stuffed with vegetables and cheese, served with ratatouille and rocket), and the onglet de boeuf cooked to perfection served with tasty potatoes au gratin and a bordelaise sauce, followed by a mouth-watering mango and vanilla tart topped with passion fruit. Extra points for the lovely presentation and the top notch service. The bar meanwhile, is open until at least 11:00pm and its "vinotheque" (a play on words for the French word for library, bibliotheque therefore "wine library") boasts about 25 different wines available by the glass.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The Juana is a few hundred metres from the beachfront in Juan-les-Pins where a number of private and public beaches are available. Its sister hotel the Belles Rives is located a few minutes down the road and possesses a private beach. Juana clients are welcome to use this beach but unfortunately there is no preferential tariff for sun bed hire. A sun bed with mattress will set you back anywhere between 20 euros and 35 euros (£17.60 - £30.80) for the whole day, depending on the position of the sun bed (right by the water's edge, or further back, etc). The beach itself is nothing extraordinary; there is a tiny sandy area but for the most part "the beach" is a concrete boardwalk which extends to a largish pontoon, both crammed with sun beds. A few ladders provide direct access to the gorgeous turquoise water. However there are rocks about so swimmers need to exercise some caution. During high season there is a waterfront bar, restaurant and snack outlet as well as the Belles Rives Waterski Club for various motorised and non-motorised water sports.

    To know

    The Juana closes every winter during November and December. Its sister hotel the Belles Rives (only a few hundred metres down the road) remains open during this time.

      • Location 6.84

      Less a hotel and more a hidden gem of a guesthouse, the delightful Mas Djoliba boasts bucket loads of Provencal charm. This 'mas' (old Provencal country house) is tucked away in a tranquil, residential area, high above Antibes, yet only a 15 minute walk from the centre of its picturesque old town. Dating back to 1920, the Mas Djoliba began trading as a hotel in the 50's with its 13 comfortable and thoughtfully decorated rooms. It is a good choice for holidaymakers, especially couples, seeking an authentic Provencal setting yet convenience to the attractions of Antibes.

      It's somewhat difficult to review the Ambassadeur; it is currently undergoing renovations for its transformation into a Marriott Renaissance hotel, to be completed sometime in 2012. The makeover couldn't come at a better time though as some aspects of the hotel are beginning to look somewhat tired. However, with spacious common areas, a good location and newly renovated rooms, the hotel is more than halfway there.

      Despite its glamorous reputation, Antibes offers many budget accommodation choices - Les Strélitzias being one of them. Not your straightforward hotel, Les Strélitzias also counts a "residence" which is home to long-term renters as well as senior citizens. Despite this combination, this three-star hotel offers simple, comfortable accommodation in a quiet but handy location. Some rooms are yet to be renovated though; guests should avoid these and request those already made over instead.

This three-star hotel dating back to 1930 has 60 simple rooms as well as a bar and restaurant. There are however, no leisure facilities on-site. Thankfully then, that it's only a hop, skip and a jump to all that Antibes Juan-les-Pins has to offer...

      One of the few hotels in Antibes situated right at the water's edge, the Belles Rives is a wonderful, stylish tribute to art deco chic. With its consistent 1930's style, the five-star Belles Rives is appreciated by guests for its original and distinct décor seen from the rooms to the public areas of the hotel. No hotel is perfect though - the Belles Rives is no exception - but it remains a luxurious choice on the French Riviera.

      Everything 70's is cool again so if you believe that, then Helios is the ultimate retro pad in the heart of Antibes Juan-les-Pins. This four-star hotel was built in 1973 and it shows, however renovations have taken place as recently as early 2011. The lack of leisure facilities is somewhat a letdown but the hotel does boast two private beaches only minutes away.
