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.
