Hotel Royal-Riviera is a beautiful property with a great location right on the Baie des Fourmis. The flowering landscaping was lucious and the outdoor dining area was very pleasant. The staff were all very eager to help. Our room was quite large, nicely decorated, and overlooked the pool.
As an activity, we took a fantastic walk on the Promenade Maurive Rouvier, which had a very convenient access from the hotel property. The walkway is right along the water and offered spectacular views of the area. The Promenaded ended in the Port de Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, which is a small harbor village with restaurants, shops, and marina. Nice area.
On returning to the Hotel, we had lunch at the poolside restaurant and then spent a very relaxing afternoon at the pool. We had dinner that evening al fresco at the hotel. The food was good and the service was excellent, but like many hotel restaurants it was very expensive.
Our only criticism: the shower nozzle was an inexpensive handheld gizmo that sat in a cheap plastic holder. Not what you would expect from an expensive luxury hotel. Also, the shower/tub had one of those silly partial glass doors, which I've seen in other European hotels. These little panels do very little to control the water, and the bathroom floor gets flooded even after a brief shower. Of course, this gets cleaned up by the maids, but the bathroom remains unpleasant in meantime.
Despite the relatively minor shower issue, the Hotel Royal-Riviera is a spectacular place and we would definitely stay there again.
