“Lovely in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2009

My husband and I recently stayed here two nights as part of our 25th anniversary trip. We originally booked at Le Cavendish, which is owned by the same people, but upon arrival were upgraded to Villa Garbo. We had a beautifully decorated and furnished two bedroom, two bath apartment. The kitchen had a coffee maker and there were complimentary beverages in the fridge. Everything looked brand new with state of the art technology. The bedding and toiletries were top notch.

The villa is a few steps from the main shopping street and restaurants and an easy walk to the beach and the old town. The only reason I didn't give a perfect score for location is that it is not right on the beach.

Each evening complimentary drinks were offered downstairs in the lobby to be enjoyed there or on the patio. We met the owners who along with the cheerful staff treated you as if they were welcoming you into their home. It was a wonderful stay and I only wish we could have stayed longer.

We have just returned from 10 days holidays in Cannes at the Villa Garbo. It was great experience for us (the family of 2 adults and son 13 years old). The hotel is chic and luxury with all amentities you can only imagine including even free private beach and open bar. The staff (Nicola, Xavier and Mary) was extremely polite, friendly and helpful. In fact we feel ourselves like we were at home. We got acquinted with the owner Mr. Guy Welter and were happy that we managed to meet such a wonderful and hospitable person. We think that it was the best hotel we ever stayed before and it was a real paradise in Cannes.
