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.

    Location 8.51 /10

    Set a few blocks back from the beach at Juan-les-Pins, Les Strélitzias is about a 10 minute walk from the town centre and a few minutes from the sea. It is next door to a quaint garden which adds some much-needed verdure to this built-up area of Juan-les-Pins.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    Most of the hotel rooms are found in the main tower above the lobby, bar and restaurant. There are several others found on the ground floor of the building on the far side of the courtyard, but most of the remaining rooms are part of the residence. There are five categories of room spread throughout six floors in the main tower (with elevator access). Of the 69 rooms, most of these are equipped with a generous balcony or terrace that overlooks the neighbouring park. There are no sea views due to the tall buildings in front of the hotel however 12 rooms boast huge L-shaped balconies.

    The standard rooms are somewhat small but clean and adequate for a budget stay. There are stark differences between the rooms that have been renovated and those that haven't. The latter are quite bare and contain very basic furnishings. Their balconies are spacious but the presence of the bulky air conditioning unit doesn't help appearances. Meanwhile, the made over rooms are decorated in a more modern, youthful style with flashes of magenta and lime green adding colour to a neutral base. From the bed linen, to the armchairs and the blinds, the same scheme is seen throughout.

    The rooms on the ground floor of the residence portion of the hotel have been renovated in another style altogether. Even if it's only a question of 30 metres or so, they feel quite distanced from the main hotel but they do have small, ground level terraces overlooking the central courtyard. Orange was the flavour of the day during their makeover: from orange blinds, to orange bed linen, there's even an orange feature wall in the bedroom as well as in the ensuite bathroom. The latter features a spacious shower cubicle and modern bathroom fittings. In this area of the hotel there are also seven rooms available with kitchenette. However these kitchenettes are closed off during the summer period, transforming them into regular hotel rooms sans catering facilities.

    A final note: while there is a safe in each room (free of charge), these are of the older style (not digital) and therefore require a key, available at Reception.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    Guests enter the hotel by traversing a large central courtyard where a small garden and pétanque area overlooks the Jardin Pauline across the road. The large buildings of the hotel and residence form a U-shape around the courtyard and feature unsightly maroon and white awnings... Unfortunately the dated (1970's) architecture is out in force but the hotel is working hard to update its facilities and accommodation and give them a more modern feel. The lobby is bright and spacious and divides the large bar from the hotel restaurant. Other facilities include a pétanque pitch, billiards, a library (open Mondays only) and a fitness room, the latter was under renovation during our visit in March 2011.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Les Strélitzias counts one bar and one restaurant on-site. Le Patio serves buffet breakfast, and lunch and dinner à la carte offering diners a somewhat limited menu of Provencal cuisine. The restaurant is found in a large, long room adjacent to the lobby, with pine wooden furnishings and several pot plants and fresh flowers to add decoration and colour. Large windows facing the courtyard allow for lots of light. In the summer (April - October), the tables spill out on to the terrace. Jazz lunches are held every Sunday afternoon with a special menu at 39 euros (£34.35) that includes an aperitif on arrival, a small pitcher of wine and coffee with the meal. Themed evenings are held once a month, with entertainment and menus around 23 euros (£20.25) excluding drinks.

    Meanwhile, the hotel bar L'Anis Club boasts more than 100 varieties of pastis and absinthe. With wooden cabinets stocked full of the different varieties, fans of absinthe will also appreciate the very original metal bar stools in the form of absinthe spoons, or the absinthe fountains that decorate the tables.

    While there is no room service as such, guests may request to have their breakfast served in their room.

      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.

      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.

      The Garden Beach used to belong to the Méridien Group but is now an independent hotel. It is located in Juan Les Pins, in the modern part of Antibes. Its private beach, which can be accessed directly from the hotel, makes it a firm favourite with families, especially during the summer months.

      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.

      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.

      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.
