    Location 6.65 /10

    The hotel is located in a small side street off the beach at Juan-les-Pins, only 50m from the waterfront and about 500m from the Juan-les-Pins train station. Villa Nina is a short drive from Cannes (3 miles) and Antibes's TGV train station (1.25 miles) while Nice Côte d'Azur Airport is just over 12 miles from the hotel.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    Rooms are set out across two levels, on the first and second floors of the hotel, with no elevator access. The corridors' bright yellow walls and oriental carpets add colour and warmth. There are 15 rooms at Villa Nina, divided into three categories: double/twin, triple and junior suite (sleeps four people in two rooms).

    The rooms, like the hotel corridors, feature yellow walls and warm tones from the burgundy carpets to the berry red curtains. While the rooms are clean and bright they err on the small side. However, 12 out of 15 rooms have a small balcony and a handful of these even boast a sea view. All rooms are simply furnished and feature LCD cable television, free WIFI and telephone (with direct line). However there is no mini-bar, nor personal safety deposit box - the latter can be found at Reception. Most rooms do not have any wardrobe space but rather a facility to place flat one's suitcase and a few hangers. While this may be inconvenient for some, it cleverly frees up space in the already cramped rooms. The bathrooms may be tiny but they are clean and adequate.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    Last renovated in 2006, Villa Nina is a simple but warm hotel, lovingly decorated by the owner/manager who has sourced objects from his world travels, local flea markets and his own personal collection of family heirlooms. From sculptures and oriental carpets, to gilt mirror frames, antique chests and other objets d'art, Villa Nina combines a number of eclectic styles that somehow work when thrown together, creating an inviting and homey atmosphere.

    To the immediate left of a small Reception area is a spacious lounge with large windows that face the street. With comfy leather couches, indoor plants and lashings of rich colours, the lounge is a comfortable hideaway perfect for reading or early evening drinks (there's a well stocked bar). The lounge also doubles as a breakfast room where a buffet selection is set up to one side, while several tables spill out on to a private, paved courtyard. This charming garden features a wrought iron gazebo structure draped in burgundy voile curtains surrounded by an impressive bonsai collection, as well as gorgeous bougainvillea and orange and lemon trees.

    Food and drink

    There is no restaurant on-site (hence no score for Food and Drink) but breakfast is served daily in the lounge on the ground floor. Guests may choose to dine inside in cooler weather, or outside in the courtyard amongst the bonsais and bougainvillea. Breakfast is a cold, continental buffet at a cost of 12 euros (£10.55) per person.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    Villa Nina is 50m from the beaches of Juan-les-Pins where guests will find a number of public and private beaches. The hotel has an agreement with the nearby La Plage private beach, where guests may benefit from discounted rates for sun lounger, mattress and parasol rental.

      Part of the well-known budget chain Best Western, the Astoria is a simple three-star hotel with standardised accommodation in the heart of Juan-les-Pins.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
