Hotel Villa Nina
Ranked #30 of 47 Hotels in Juan-les-Pins
Reviewed 28 August 2013

This was our second stay at this hotel (last time in 2010). It is a very comfortable and well priced hotel close to the beach. Good cheap parking next door. Rooms are small but comfortable and clean and air conditioned. Breakfast was very nice and well priced. Owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. Lounge and outside breakfast area particularly characterful and comfortable. We had a great time with our two teenage girls and would recommend both the hotel and of course Juan-les-Pins.

Room Tip: We just had ordinary rooms at the back.

As others have commented and we found during our stay, the owners Stephane and Nina are most friendly and helpful people you could wish to meet. A couple of hours after we checked in I bumped into Stephane in the reception area, although we had never met he knew our names and was immediately eager to help with any questions we had. Every time we returned to the hotel he was available but not imposing, ready to help.
The hotel itself has a lovely 'character' and is not an identi-kit hotel. The bonsai garden is a lovely place to eat breakfast in the morning and the lounge is full of lovely features. The only slight criticism we could make is the bathrooms are quite small. That aside a perfect place to stay in Juan-les-pins

Stayed here for a week in June. Really convenient location. Cosy hotel and really intimate feel. But best of all for us were the delightful owners Stephan and Nina who could not do enough to make us feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble for them including a very early start and a personal lift in Stephan's car on Sunday morning to get us to the train station in time!

This hotel is located about 2 minutes from the beach with some really nice beach front restaurants nearby and only a 10 minute stroll to the centre of Juan-les-Pins.

Hotel was clean and well looked after with a Japanese feeling to the beautiful back garden where breakfast is served if you want to sit outside. There is indoor seating as well.

Breakfast is served with really good coffee, bread, cakes, juice.... Served with a smile too!

Stephan is the friendly helpful host. It seems to have once been a family home. We had really good sleeps, proper curtains meant we got real darkness in the mornings and could sleep on til whatever time we wanted.

The only drawback was that the bathrooms are so tiny that you kind of have to turn sideways on the loo to close the door, there is very little leg room on the throne.

We stayed in two different rooms because we had booked for two nights and then decided to stay on for an extra night, the second room was similar to the first with respect to the toilet leg room.

It wouldn't put us off staying there again.

I came here with my fiancee and we had a great stay. The owner is very nice and entertaining. The place has interesting character. Of course it is not the ritz carlton or anything but it worked for us. The bathroom was a little small but it didn't bother us. The location was nice; not beachfront but you can somewhat see the water across the tracks and the beach was only a short walk away. Relatively close to the train station as well; we walked there on several occasions to shoot over to Nice, Antibes, and Cannes.

We chose Villa Nina because of previous reviews. It was a great decision. To say that Stephane makes you feel at home is an understatement! The rooms may be small, especially our bathroom!, but we wouldn't have traded our experience for the world! Discovered that the sandy beach in Juan Les Pins is far superior to other beaches in the Nice area, and it is steps away from the hotel. At first, the train was questionable, but it became a non-issue. Stephane's restaurant recommendation, L'Horizon, was so Incredible that we ate there all three nights of our stay! His suggestions of where to go and how to get there were perfect...and, he could not have been more accommodating every time we walked in the door! If you're more concerned with your experience than luxuries, this is the place for you. Villa Nina is absolutely charming in its decor, ambience, location....we would return in a heartbeat! Thanks, Stephane and Nina!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view...small balconies that look to the sea. Don't mind the train...you won't...

We arrived at Villa Nina following a delayed flight thanks to Jet2, an arrival at Terminal 1 to find we had to go to Terminal 2 to get a the hire car, and a delay getting a hire car thanks to Enterprise who had given the car we reserved to someone else, so we were a bit fed up. Stephan swept all that away with his warm welcome, instantly knowing who we were and greeting us by name. We had already received a welcome email from him immediately on making our booking, which had impressed us, and a first for a hotel booking. We were booked in quickly and efficiently and then shown to our room - several important things were explained to us which made us feel at ease and certainly avoided us being confused at a later time. The room was a little small, and the bathroom was tiny, but everything we needed was provided, and everywhere was perfectly clean and had a nice homely feel about it. The beach is a couple of minutes away and the sand is soft and golden. There is a lovely promenade and bars and restaurants are close by, and although we found them to be expensive, we had good meals, excellent wine and good service in L’Horizon and Ti Toque, both recommended by Stephan. The boulangerie around the corner sells the most delicious croissants, still warm. The area is very built up and seems densely populated, and driving was a bit of a challenge, however it was worth the effort to drive around Cap D’Antibes, stopping at Plage de la Garoupe for lunch – we had a lovely walk there along the coast. The following day we drove to Monaco – what an experience – beautiful jaw dropping buildings – a Bentley on every corner - so many tunnels that you get totally disoriented - more by luck than judgement we found parking in a shopping centre car park and from there, walked to the main marina and saw the stands being erected for the next Grand Prix, then took a bus up to Monaco Ville to see the palace and the rather magnificent buildings up there. We saw most of Monaco again while driving around trying to get out, and bits of it, we saw twice. On our last day, we tried to get to the old part of Antibes but it was very difficult to find our way around, even though Stephan gave us a street map and marked the route, and there was no parking space to be found anywhere. We eventually gave up and headed inland where we came across amazing valleys and hills and eventually ended up at Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a fortified hilltop village dating from 14th century – we had a pleasant walk around there, admired the stunning views and bought a couple of prints from one of the many art shops. In summary, Juan Les Pins is a good base and we loved it, we loved Villa Nina, and we loved Stephan and Nina for making us so welcome, and doing everything they could to make our stay successful. We have never had such a warm and friendly service at any other hotel. Would we recommend Villa Nina – yes, we would.
