Great stay, Very good and helpfull staff, food very good in restaurant and by the sea.
Only downside for me was the hotel charged 35 euros a day for EACH sunbed, towel and umbrella which I think if you are staying at the hotel there should be NO charge. We heard several guests complaining about this.
We wanted a hotel close to the beach that did good food and had spa facilities where we could relax without the kids for a few days. The Cap d'Antibes Beach Hotel delivered on all fronts. A special thank you to the staff who were polite and attentive without be overbearing despite the intense heat.
We will definitely be back.
Hotel Juana was a pleasant hotel in a good location, very near to beach, shops, restaurants etc, but did have some drawbacks. From the wording 'the private beach is 1 block away', we'd believed that the Juana had a private beach, but actually this belonged to the Belle Rives (sister hotel) who charged for its use - for 2 of us to lie on plastic sunbeds for a day with a towel each, umbrella and 2 small coffees cost €76 (which was higher than the rates listed on the leaflet in our room). This amount was charged to our room without us being shown a bill or asked to sign anything (this was only at the Belle Rive; the Juana staff always presented bills to be signed).
Breakfast in the Juana was €27 each and really nothing special at all, but not a problem as there are a range of alternative venues a few steps away.
The hotel amenities list includes 'airport transportation (surcharge)', but when we asked about this service at the hotel they could only offer to order a taxi for us (fyi, cost of taxi from Nice airport was €95).
On one day there was a note in our room advising that the restaurant would be closed at lunchtime and the pool area would be closed all day due to a function, which was inconvenient.
So, a few negatives and this is certainly not the best 5* we've stayed at, but the staff were friendly, the hotel was well maintained and very pleasant as well as being well located for amenities.

"great for a beach holiday. Hotel beach is good.
perfectly located to discover Juan les pins. Hotel itself is clean, organised and well located close to the hotel's wonderful beach. You can walk along the sea front up to Eden Roc hotel or into Antibes old town and along the Cap an up to the lighthouse.
Train station is located very close to hotel (but you don't hear it) , from there you can access to Grasse, Cannes, Nice or Villefranche sur mer and Beaulieu sur mer aswell as Monaco.
Plenty to see and so for everyone.
Stayed for 7 nights in Deluxe Sea View room on 4th floor. Initial reaction upon opening the door was WOW! The view was stunning and the private beach located directly below the balcony. Huge sliding door onto balcony with table and chairs for sitting and boat gazing.
Room itself was reasonably comfortable but let down by distinctly average bathroom with shower over bath. Separate toilet. Terrible lighting (which for those of us over a certain age) means that doing makeup or, for men, facial shaving is somewhat hit and miss.
Breakfast is expensive at 25euros pp, but plenty of other options locally. We ate all meals out as restaurants in town are superb and good value.
Cannot comment on beach facilities but from our balcony they looked very good. Spa facilities are a bonus.
There is no insect screening on the windows and we learned the hard way! Mozzies were voracious and some fine voile which could be drawn at night would be a nice touch.
All said , our stay was one of the most relaxing in a long time and I would go back in an instant.
Pool towels are small and not complimentary, there is a charge of 4 euros each per day. Spa in the hotel is nice but if you want to use the pool at the spa you also have to rent the cap for your hair. All these additional charges should be posted as additional fees at Expedia or the hotel. The food at the restaurant is good. Rooms are very spacious with a walking closet. Having free parking is a plus. Overall a good family hotel also good for couples.
I was in Juan Les Pins for 5 nights staying in a suite with two friends,the room was excellant very clean and had plenty of space, 2 balconies with a view to the sea. The staff were all very helpful especially the front office and the gentleman that arranged booking restaurants and our taxi to the airport. Superb location only a short walk and you are in the centre .
A thriving Riviera town, Antibes began its existence as the Greek trading post of Antipolis. Today, smart shops, a luxury marina and historic quarter ringed by ramparts attract many visitors. Open-air markets specialise in locally grown cut flowers. The Musée Picasso in Château Grimaldi contains works by 20th-century artists. Cap d’Antibes is a lush and beautiful enclave of the super-rich, studded with luxury villas and hotels.
