We recently stayed at Eden Roc for part of our honeymoon after a disappointing week at Splendido. Eden Roc reminded us what hotels of this calibre should be like and restored our faith in hotels with such glittering reputations.
In many ways this hotel is a contradiction in terms, it is glamorous but comfortable; formal but relaxing; trendy but functional and the service is always excellent whether it's the fantastic welcome on arrival, the late night gourmet room service or the helpful team by the pool.
Not all things were to our tastes but the things that should be right always were. The cabanas by the sea are great I'd imagine if you are an A lister seeking solace from the paparazzi but we didn't really see the point of spending £1000 for one for half the day once you have thrown in a couples massage and a lunch. We also felt the atmosphere was nicer at the pool and all the guests were pretty friendly while we were there.
The prices are consistently high as you would expect but some of them seem a bit daft such as the €44 burger. That said if you go out anywhere near the hotel the hotel seems good value, at Bacon the local seafood restaurant for example the bouillabaisse with langoustines is €165 which is pretty steep for a bowl of soup (although our meal was fantastic)!
Other things of note were the ambiance in the champagne bar, the espresso Martini's and cigar selection in the Bellini bar, the excellent breakfast service and in particular the housekeeping and concierge service. Both of these teams are effortlessly brilliant and no request was too much for them. I think the family ownership of this hotel is a big plus despite them having a few properties now. You really get the feel that they care which can be rare and the opposite of what we had experienced at Splendido.
On departure I filled out a feedback form with three minor points I felt could have improved and within a week I had a response to my home from the manager.. Now that's slick!
Thank you for a great stay on our special visit to all the team at Eden Roc - sublime!!
