But that is about it. If you are looking for a place that will not break the bank vs. a hotel stay & has rooms that need to be updated/repaired, then this place is it.
The views are fantastic and every apartment has one. Also, to be able to make your own meals and enjoy them overlooking the water is was what makes this property worth dealing with subpar accommodations. We were here for a week after a week of staying in hotels in other parts of France, we enjoyed being able to cook for ourselves. So we definitely made use of the very small / minimally supplied kitchen.
We had a issues with the apartment not being cleaned (or if it had, it didn't look like it). They were quick to respond and nice about it. Our apartment was cleaned within 2 hours of my going to the front desk.
The location (if you have a car) is great. Just a short drive to neighboring towns and a good grocery store in Monaco. There is a stairway to the bottom of the hill for morning walks to the bakery. You don't feel so bad about eating the croissants and baguettes so much after the hike.
The pool is lovely but very busy. They need to do a better job of keeping the area clean. There are non-smoking, eating rules but everyone ignores them.
Not a bad stay overall. Love the area but will look for other options nearby next summer.
