Residence Carre Marine
Reviewed 10 September 2012

We have two twin girls aged 18 months and stayed in early September. We arrived late as were travelling from the UK (tip: travel at night to avoid jams around Lyon) so emailed in advance (another tip!) and were given the door code and access to a safety deposit box to get our key. Our car had a roofbox so didn't fit in the underground car park but staff swapped our space for one outside. Very clean, nice pool, helpful receptionist. As with other French residences, they charge extra for linen and cleaning so bring bedsheets, towels, washing liquid, duvets etc (you won't need a duvet in September though). We had travel cots so didn't hire the cot which would have been 18EUR each per week (not per day as wrongly stated in the advert). Location is walking distance from Mandelieu, close to a river and lovely riverside walk and beach. Cannes is 15 minutes drive. Kitchen has well-stocked drawers, microwave, four hob cooker and oven. We would come back.

I stayed here for a couple of nights during the Cannes Film Festival. The apartments are located in Mandelieu, a sleepy village next to Cannes where all the action happens. Check-in went very smoothly, the reception wasn't open when we arrived, but the lady made sure we found our key and provided towels etc in case we needed them. The apartement is quite spacious to French standards, I think it was about 70 m² and was looking over a beautiful harbour. It had a living room with fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a bathroom and seperate toilet and a bedroom with double bed. Again for French standards, the apartment looked modern and fresh! There is also an underground garage in case you are there with the car. Take in mind that you cannot park easily, because the spaces are small. Check out went also very easy, we paid for the cleaning and that was it!

Very clean and tidy. Pool is excellent. Views of marine are excellent. Location is OK if you have a car. The lifts did not work on day 1 but did for the rest of the 2 weeks we stayed. The parking spaces (underground car park) are very small and awkward to use. Linen and towels are charged extra. Wifi is only available at the reception and very slow and intermittent connection at that. Staff do speak english.

My wife, two girls and I stayed at Carre Marine in one week in early June 2011.

Overall I can recommend Carre Marine and would like to give it 4 ½ stars, but it isn’t possible. 5 stars isn’t reachable, as:
1) The beds are a bit too short (I’m 1.90 meters high)
2) The reception was closed in 2 days without any further justification
3) Plates could stand up in the dishwasher

Having said that, we were all in all very pleased with the stay at Carre Marine.

Carre Marine can be a little hard to find, if you do not use gps.
This is because the address does not match the actual location. When you turn off at "Rue De La Pinea" run across the bridge (the river) and turn right at the first road on your right.

It was quiet in the evening, which is good, when you travel with 2 girls - aged 1 ½ years and 4 ½ years.

Free wi-fi only close to reception - not in the apartments

Supermarkets:
There are good supermarkets nearby, which is best reached by car.

We used Geant Casino, but also Carrefour.

If you fancy fast food and not bother to McDonalds, I can recommend "Le Maison du Bon Poulet" (Avenue du 23 Aout - 06210 La Napoule) where you can buy a juicy chicken.

Next to "Le Maison du Bon Poulet" is a really good baker.

We ate as many others on the Cote Place and weren’t disappointed.

Travelling out of season, but it was still warm enough for kids to swim in the Med. Lots of places were closed but enough was left to entertain us for a week. Swimming pool looked good but we didn't try it. The apartment was spotless and comfortable, with a lovely view over the Marina. Not realistically a walk, a short drive really, to Mandelieu la Napoule where there were fantastic restaurants (try Cote Place and Mandarine), a great supermarket, excellent fruit and veg shop and two bakers. We arrived very late (11.00pm) due to our TGV being cancelled (strikes). Important to note that unless you have arranged it (and we didn't!) there will not even be toilet paper in the apartment. That was challenging, but we had at least bought tea coffee and milk with us from the UK. Also note that Carre Marine is not signposted from the main road - look for the sign for Pierre et Vacance. Riverside walk is lovely. We'd go back without hesitation.

Situated in a vast green belt, with two private marinas, the residence is lulled by the motion of the boats leaving the marina on their way to the sea. Cannes town center is fifteen minutes away from the residence and the Cannes hinterland offers many attractions. Carré marine proposes well equipped 2 and 3 room apartments with a terrace or a garden. The residence offers numerous advantages. All the apartments have a view over the marina and the Esterel. Reception (with free Wifi), laundry swimming pool (Open from end of March until end of October), petanque area, paddling pool, table tennis, playground for children, lift and parking are pleasant additions. Add the exceptional privilege of mooring-rings and launching facilities, Carré Marine will enchant the amateur skipper with a passion for boating. ... more   less
