We wanted to give this an "Excellent", we really did. But we just couldn't - and I'll tell you why.
We came for our honeymoon, and when we told the staff member when checking in, he said congratulations but offered nothing else. Not a big deal, except that I had remembered Mr. Silvio Catalano (GM) saying in a previous post that they usually provide (and I'm quoting from his response to a guest):
"consisting in a bottle of sparkling Cremant wine, a box of French macarons and a bottle of water with an upgrade upon availability; this is done for all announced honeymooners"
So nothing on check in. The next day, I emailed the front desk with this same quote, and they did sent up a bottle of the sparkling wine - no macaroons, no bottle of water. We were more interested in the macaroons frankly, so I had to call down (feeling foolish to even ask again) and they then eventually sent up the macaroons. I didn't ask for the water and I was never offered an upgrade.
So... this all might seem a bit petty, but a five star hotel (charging five star prices!) shouldn't need three tries to get it right, especially when the GM says the policy is to offer these to honeymooners. Hence the reason for not giving it "Excellent".
With that, the very good:
-great location, walking distance to the beaches and old town
-absolutely gorgeous hotel
-rooms are large and very nice, with great amenities like all the different shampoos and conditioners
-service was very good outside of the story above - very friendly staff
-valet parking was convenient and they got the car very quickly
Overall, just a slight mishap that took it down a rating, that was unfortunate at a 5 star. We'd still try it again the next time in Nice.
