Just awful. The photos were deceiving. Although the pool was lovely and clean and over-looking the sea, we were actually very far away from the ocean and they make you pay for the lounge chairs. As for the 'apartments' - they were no better than refugee centers. Small, cramped, hot and sweaty - just awful, inhumane, deplorable and bleak, bleak bleak. I was literally watching the clock for the hour when we could leave. People who worked there were either indifferent, downright rude or very unhelpful (wouldn't even give us toilet paper) and the day i purchased wireless access, the wireless went down for the entire day. Just miserable.

I totally agree with the opinion that this place is not suited for babies. A lot of stairs everywhere made it difficult to move around. Except for that, it was very positive with the pool for children, but this was also suitable for children 3+. Also great that you could order a "baby pack" with baby bed, chair in the apartment, and a baby carriage!

Room Tip: A renovated apartment with 2 bedrooms.

I must say I do not agree with the writers who say Villa Francia is terrible. It is ok. The rooms are in need of some upgrading, and some maintenance operations needed are clearly not performed. The apartments are quite small, but the equipment is ok. The reason I would not recommend this place for people travelling with babies are the lack of lifts in an environment full of stairs. We had to cross the parking area several times each day to exit the area, go to the minimarket or restaurant, it was impossible to take the pram to the pool, which was essential for us. If your children can walk, then it is a different story.

The place is a nice walk from the beach, but there are few restaurants around the hotel, so either you must take your car, walk, cook in the apartment or eat in the restaurant at the facility (it has a limited menu).

The sunbeds cost 4 € per halfday, which is expensive in my opinion (but far cheaper than at the beach).

In shirt the inky thing going for this hotel is it's revamped reception area looking out onto the pool. Unfortunately this us where the "revamped" features end.

This hotel needs to be modernized badly. Rooms are cramped with a
look of car boot sale furniture about them. Our bathroom is so dark that we have resorted to finding a torch
so makeup could be applied.

No wifi in rooms only in lobby/restaurant area. Forget about sitting in the lobby an using the
Internet unless you are also buying something from the restaurant
regardless of whether you are a guest, restaurant staff very rudely tell u to leave an forcibly usher u into a room the size if a Prison cell.

Avoid this hotel if you can the price isn't worth the taudy accomDation and greedy slum lord attitude

I've now stayed at the Pierre Vacances Villa Francia a few times - they always have availability during Cannes festivals and conferences - and even though the rooms are dated and cheaply furnished, self-catering and some of the reviews are poor, it's been perfectly fine every time for me. It's got ocean views, a great pool with views over the bay, landscaped gardens and a shuttle service to the centre when conferences are happening...all for around £100 a night for a twin-bed apartment with living room, which is great value.
