We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend after visiting Nice. We were delighted with
our choice of hotel as it had all mod cons extremely clean and friendly. It was in a
great location for the beach and just a walk into the centre of town. Plenty of restaurants
to choose from and a nice relaxed atmosphere both in the hotel and in Menton which we loved.
We hope to return!

This nice hotel is run by the most friendly and service oriented couple. The hotel is very nice with a minimalistic style and bright colours. The hotel is well situated next to the beach and very close to the center of Menton.

Menton is not so well known as some of the more famous towns on the French Riviera, but it is just as beautiful and much less pretentious than most. Other towns along the riviera are easily accessed by bus or by car. Hotel Palm Garavan is a small hotel (19 rooms) right on the beach road within an easy and picturesque stroll along the beach to the heart of the lovely old town center. The young husband and wife team who run it are two of the nicest people we have ever met. They were unfailingly helpful and friendly. The rooms are small, but clean and modern. We did not take breakfast at the hotel, but at a patisserie shop just next door, so I cannot comment on the hotel breakfast. The hotel has an underground parking lot to which the hotel manager personally accompanied me to and made sure I was able to successfully park our car. I would characterize this as a no frills, well located, perfectly adequate, friendly, reasonably priced hotel.

Room Tip: There are a limited number of rooms having a direct sea view. Others have an indirect (side) view of...

We’re just at the end of our second stay at this delightful family run hotel in our favourite place of Menton. It’s all about the friendly welcome, the immaculate rooms, the superb service and attention to detail, that makes this work so well. Although everything is organized beautifully, the mood is relaxing, just what we want for our holiday, we will be back and you should give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

This is my second time staying here and we were welcomed like old friends.

Feels and us family run but looks ultra -modern and new.

The balconies with vies are partial sea and partial mountains.

The beach in front of this hotel and to the east (through to two buildings past it) are the best in terms of having sandy/ gravel but no rocks including in the water. Some free sandy beaches are to the east of the small port by the basilica.

Hotel Garavan while not on the most central beach strip in Menton offered very personable service and modern, newly renovated, stylish, clean rooms. We were unexpectedly impressed with both the service and the physical facility. We will return again. Many thanks to Catherine and Olivier.

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights ( June 6th - June 12th) and had a lovely experience.
The hotel is run by a couple which must be the most pleasant and helpful hotel owners there is. We felt like being visiting a family rather then staying at a hotel.
All the staff were extremely helpful.
The room we had ( 302 on the east side ) was ok - but with very good beds and a fine bath room - and a big balcony ( that needed an upgrade )
The cleaning of the room was very good. You can choose from three different breakfasts - and that was perfect for us.
The location of the hotel is perfect. Just across the street there is a sandy beach with restaurants and rentals of beds. It*s a five minutes walk to the old town with plenty of excellent restaurants with very good food. It is also nearby to the railway station and the bus station ( aprox 15 min walk)
We would highly recommend this hotel if you want a relaxing and cosy stay in Menton - ask for an upgraded room on the east side.
Thanks so much for making this holiday being so good for us.
