Location Question - Cap D'antibes/Juan Les Pins

Planning to spend 3/4 days in French Riviera with kids - would like to spend some time by the beach and also travel to St. Paul de Vence/ Monaco/Eze - trying to determine the best location for the stay. Looking at Cap D'antibes - would appreciate experts opinion on the location and good hotel (upscale with sea view and kids friendly)

Most hotels on the Cap that have a "sea view" are going to start at about 500 euros a night per room...is that the kind of budget that you are looking for?

We are planing to rent a car - will be flying to Nice from Paris - the hotel looks nice - wanted to get perspective from experts or people that stayed there if it is as good as it claims to be as well as if it is children friendly

I can't comment on staying at the hotel but the location is certainly superb - couldn't better it. The only negative I see is that the online sites may give the impression it is an easy stroll into Antibes - this is not so, the Garoupe beach is quite isolated.

The Garoupe beach is lovely...but as mentioned, it is quite isolated, There are a few restaurants nearby. You would have to drive into Antibes or JLP for a decent choice of restaurants.

There is a small tabac up the road from the hotel and a small Casino on JFK Boulevard.

So ....quite limited services in the area
