Wonderful family run hotel in great location.
We stayed here for our Silver Wedding Anniversary trip and loved it. From the point of booking we were impresssed with the hotel staff, their willingness to help and with how quickly emails were responded to.
On arrival we were shown to our room which was the Imperial suite. From the website description and pictures we were expecting something special, and we were not disappointed. The suite was large and well appointed; the bathroom was stunning and complete with steam jacuzzi. The highlight, however, was the terrace, with sea view and its own hot tub!!
The price was not cheap but in comparision with similar hotels in the area was worth every penny (euro). Breakfast was served in a dining room atop the hotel with stunning views, or for an extra €6 on your own terrace. We chose the latter and really enjoyed it. The breakfast was plentiful and well presented and arrived at the appointed time.
The hotel has a small pool which did not seem overly utilised by guests when we were there, so if a pool is a requirement this would be ideal as sunbeds and space were not issues.
The bus from the square stops right outside the hotel and when walking back there is a short cut via a set of steps which makes the stroll down to town much shorter.
The whole ambience of the hotel was just right and we reccommend it to anyone seeking luxury and friendliness in a great location. The staff are one of its greatest assets but it has many.
One small critiscism would be that they did not acknowledge that it was our anniversary; we did not expect a fuss but some small token (a bottle of wine for example) would have been a nice gesture and would have added to our enjoyment of a special occasion. This point has been mentioned on other reviews (see tripadvisor) so maybe it is a policy of the hotel not to do this as I suppose lots of guests are celebrating some special event.
We will return to the Eden Roc and hope this review will encourage others to visit -- you will not be disappointed.
