Five Seas Hotel Cannes

Reviewed 3 July 2014

Fives Seas is a lovely hotel for exploring Cannes. We stayed for two and half days during our honeymoon and everything was lovely. When we arrived at the hotel our room wasn't ready yet so we hung out on the pool deck which is nice. The pool is a bit on the small side but the temperature was perfect. My only issue was I wish they would have had some music playing to add to the ambiance. They had speakers around, but no music. Anyways, while we were waiting we ordered the ham plate and the cheese plate. Both were beautifully presented and sooo good! When I room was finally ready, we went down to find the staff had put rose pedals on the bed and left a handwritten letter (with an official wax seal) and small package of multi-colored macarons (They were DELICIOUS btw)!!

The rooms themselves are large and well appointed with a kind of Asian/Feng Sui vibe. The best thing however was the bed!! OMG soo comfortable. I hated getting out of it every day. You could literally stay in it all day. There was also tons of closet and storage space so if you are staying for a while, its perfect. And since it was our honeymoon and they gave us a free upgrade to a deluxe room which has the minibar included with a great selection of snacks and soft drinks and its refreshed daily. Our room also included free movies. The selection was decent, so we watched a few movies at night also.

The hotel has an exercise room tucked away on the lower level but clearly no one uses it during the summer. When I asked about it, everyone seemed confused lol. But then I realized they had a table with small towels, bottles of water and snacks near the front door for guests that wanted to go running (only in the morning). So I did that instead. That was a nice touch.

The hotel is also very centrally located and perfect for walking Croisette Blvd which is the main road along the promenade. Lots of shops, bars/cafes and restaurants within close walking distance to the hotel. You also get preferential access to the a couple of the private beaches along the boardwalk there but most of them ran between 35-45 euros. We were there during the week so it was really that 'happening' so we decided just to go to the public part of the beach which is free. Wasn't bad. The hotel did give us nice plush towels to take with us along with a bag to carry them. Outside of the small plates by the pool, we didn't eat at the hotel's restaurant so I can't comment on that.

All in all, this was a perfect hotel for our stay in Cannes. Another great thing was there is a bus around the corner that goes express to Nice Airport. Which was fortunate for us because all the cab drivers in Europe decided to strike the day we were leaving! That was pretty nutty but we worked around it. Would definitely stay here again if I return to Cannes.

When we come we had some misunderstanding with regards to the room and it was corrected at once. Breakfast was realy good with different options and staff was asking if you need eggs or else.
On the other hand, room was not cleaned properly while we were there.
Toillette bowl was not cleaned during our entire stay there, while bed sheets were changed only once in 5 days and that was last day of our stay. But, all in all it was OK. The biggest value of this hotel are still the hotel staff.

Was there just for two days while travelling the French Riviera, and had a wonderful stay!
Everything was just above expectations, from when you step in to when you leave.
As soon as we got there, it was offered us something to drink in order to fresh up! Then a little tour of the hotel and even a free massage (that i enjoyed much!).
The mini bar was also complimentary, and the terrace pool just wonderful. We also enjoyed the bike rental!
Perfect, we will be back!

This Hotel is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Like many Trip Advisor reviewers, I have been all over the world, and stayed in luxurious places - so I can say without hesitation that every single part of this stay was PERFECT.
I had a small suite on the 4th floor. It was huge and airy and completely spotless. The television was so high resolution that it startled me and the high tech telephone took a bit of fuzing around with, but otherwise the suite was amazing. LOADS of storage space - so my ratty pink suitcase was never in site.
I booked a 4 hour session at the spa ... and again, I have to say it was the best treatment I have ever had (and I've had many). The products used were natural and my skin looked like a baby. The massage put me into deep REM sleep and the technicians were delightful. They booked a haircut for me with a guy called Mathiew Olivie ...and they walked me over to the salon. Mathieu arrived and gave me the most beautiful cut of my life. The room service is super fast and the food is delicious... fresh, inventive and just the right amount - again, delivered by people who are friendly and discreet. The Concierge was super,nice. He suggested I visit the Bonnard Museum - and it was just perfect.
The location of the Five Seas Hotel is perfect in my opinion, It is not directly on le Crosette -so you won't be with millions of tourists. It is about 5 blocks toward the inside of Old Cannes - and within walking distance to the train station.
The only downfall is that the beds are SOO wonderful that you are inclined to stay in bed all day. Honest to God, that bed was THE most comfortable bed I've ever been in.

I recommend this hotel - two thumbs up.

Room Tip: I was on the 4th floor. It was wonderful - but it is a wee bit noisy. You can hear the outside c...

The 5 Seas is a "design" hotel right near the Croisette and the Convention centre. As such the location couldn't be better.
Executive room, at 45 sq m was nicely large, and we weren't put off by the bathroom having only a sliding vertical blind arrangement separating it from the main room. Plenty of space for working (for one) and lounging (for two). However the wifi (code for each room changes each day) was a meagre 3Mb which with a number of devices soon grinds to a halt. So no streaming of films, even if the TV comes with a nice Apple connection. The deco is "cool" but so dark (even with lights on) that dark items can't be seen in the wardrobes or drawers.

Parking at the hotel was €35/day, but at public parking under the convention centre €20/day (5 min walk)
Breakfast "offer" of €25/day when booked at check-in (or a whacking €35/day if eaten on the day) seems excessive, as there are myriad of lovely cafe's within 5 minutes of the hotel. We never ate in the hotel for breakfast or dinner. The hotels fine dining and brasserie are in effect in the same space, and the roof terrace (in April) was set out as a cafe, but no regular service offered.

We stayed for 3 nights and had a very relaxing time

Hotel is a perfect location very close to the old port, and perfect for exploring Cannes. Service was great, but to be honest we didn't really use all the hotels services so couldn't comment on the food, spa, etc. The roof terrace is great but only small so not sure how it would be in the busier times. We paid for
a suite, and the room was superb, the only downside being there was no bath. The shower was excellent, but after all the walking it would have been nice to soak for a bit. The bed was huge and the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Free wifi was great. The cake shop attached to the hotel downstairs was lovely, and the Irish bar 20 yards away served a lovely fry up. Overall, it's a great place to stay, but was probably a bit over the top for what we needed. The location is definitely where you want to be, but unless you plan on using the spa and eating there, you could probably save money and stay in the other hotels nearby.

You can read the title and guess. Yes!!!!....It was the best decision we made!...After reading all the reviews on "trip advisor" my daughter and I decided to pick this hotel for our 2 night stay in Cannes. We'd read a few negative reviews among many positives, but after our experience we didn't get why?!?!...Anyway, we wish we stayed longer. Maxim at the concierge was very helpful with all the lunch/dinner reservations. He gave us great advice on the restaurants. We truly appreciated his help. Their famous pastry shop had the most delicious pastries. We couldn't have enough of them. The rooms had a well stacked "free minibar". Having a Nespresso machine in the room was a big plus!...Everything was super clean and modern. The beds and the pillows were super comfortable. They had the best staff. Next time, we wouldn't stay at any other hotel but the "Five Seas" in Cannes...Please keep up the good job. You guys deserve the top rating!...Congratulations.
