stinky room (smells) and nasty managerfrom A TripAdvisor Member
When we got to the beach they said we had no reservation and couldn't get a lounge for the next 3 days. When one of the beach boys recognized my husband, we finally got seated.
The spa is missing in charm and cleanliness. No hot tub. No pool. No sauna. and very few work out machines.
Housekeeping was very kind and quick. However their work at masking the smell in the room was not sufficient. When we returned later in the day, the whole room smelled of sewer. It must have been something in the walls. Again we rang the front desk. "so sorry madame, there are no other rooms available in your price range"
Mind you.. we had just spent 650$ a nite for this room with our platinum card and were fresh from a 2 week stay in a villa in St Barths and a week in Eze Village's Chevre'd'Or, (Which I highly recommend).
Finally, day 2 when the smell was at it's worst, the management responded. They sent fruit and champaign. The one nice guy at the front desk tried to help as best he could.. but it was like too little too late.
Oh, just to give you an idea of how much the bill was - 3 nights with a 270 Euro rate, free breakfast twice, 3 big fun lunches with wine, a few waters from the mini bar, 1 day of renting 2 loungers, drinks in the bar at the hotel on two nights - all charged to the room: 1600 Euro. (I actually thought it was going to be more $) Pls write me if you have any questions.

No swimming pool on the roof, in rooms no slip-ons, no ironing board, no slackers press, no mouthwash, no shoe-polishing machine, no ice buckets, no pens, no itinieary (letterheads, envelopes), no radio, really crappy TV signal with appx. 25 euro stations (Fr., Ge., some Eng.) and another appx. 20 channels of arabic TV, mostly Allah prayers or some of the lamest arab soap operas I have ever witnessed). Every single little stupidest thing one had to order via room service, with hefty tips expected. (I take such thing for granted in now-a-days 5-star hotels!)
This hotel is pretty much catering mainly to Arabs & The Obviously Rich, then the rest of the world. I'd better suggest Hotel Martinez (2nd biggest hotel on the Boulevard), or Noga Hilton...
Nice outside facade but relatively empty interior with "worn-out" feeling. I believe this hotel has seen its better times past it. They should modernize and remodel it using technology "house-within-a-house." I have seen some results world-wide and they're marvelous!
Vive la Croisette!from monsterdog
We knew that the hotel was going to be spectacular from all the reviews we had read and we are happy to say they didn't disappoint! Quite often these grand old hotels can be snobby and stiff, but the Carlton had a very hip and happening vibe about it aswel as being a magnificent old building with superb decor!
We were allocated a double room on the side, so not with a view, but as it was for free what do you expect?!?! The room was very comfortable, especially the bed with luxurious bedlinnen; the green marble bathroom was splendid with all mod cons.
The service was perfect and the same level throughout.
One word of advice; It does help to pre-book a table for lunch on their beach restaurant as it is very popular and they don't keep spare tables for their hotel guests. I agree that it is a shame they charge hotel guests to use their beach sun beds, however it is the same for all the other hotels too on the Croisette.
We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and are definitely planning to return on a proper break, only next time we'll definitely have to foot the bill!

The Best French Fries in the World!from Anjelamw
At that time Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus was popular. I played it over and over deepening the grooves in the black pizza disc. I promised myself that when I was older I wanted to wear my hair with bangs and sultry eyes and speak with an accent. First I had to grow up and then the opportunity came.
But as a student visiting France I couldn't afford to stay at the Ritz Carlton.
Last year however I took my teenage daughter and we drove around Saint Tropez not a Bardot in sight and no Jane but the Ritz was there.
The hotel is beautiful in an old fashioned way. The service was excellent. I wanted to visit the lavender fields and the poppy fields but the concierge in a hand-written note apologized to me that I was too early to see one and too late to see the other.
Breakfast in bed each morning and then a walk along the croissette while my daughter roller bladed....watching the artists at work and taking pictures as is my passion of couples...In the early morning light people in love in any other country might seem ordinary but in France they look extraordinary.
Old people holding hands had a beauty about them and along the streets the cleaners making the roads and sidewalks spotless added to the air of perfection.
The flowers in shades of blues and whites matched the awnings and beach umbrellas which were being erected for another day in the sun.
Lunch on the terrace is a perfect opportunity to people watch while we enjoyed the salad nicoise and french fries....yes the french fries are amazing there!!
At night the stars twinkled in the hills above our belle epoque hotel my daughter and I explored and found the secret elevator from one floor that takes a person to the private spa.
I fell in love with being pampered on the rooftop and having lunch served and buying Aqua de Parma ...another first.
Every time we left our room our robes were replaced by fresh ones. Even if we had just had a shower or taken them off the hanger.
At night we had tea and raspberry tarts in the Celebrity Room.
Rooms are large and at each door you'll find a sign stating which personality has stayed in that room
One can't help but feel like a celebrity here. The treatment is pure indulgence.....I would love to go again.....
Heaven !from CookieMarskeU_K_
The Bar des Celebrities is an open plan informal area where we had a lunchtime snack, a super Club Sandwich and a wonderful salad. We had breakfast on the terrace both days, the choice was endless and the coffee totally addictive! Drinks were expensive, as expected (7 euros for a small beer, although on the 7th floor the same cost only 4 euros) We had a truly outstanding meal in the restaurant and the staff were superb, very friendly and not at all stuffy.
Our room was a complimentary upgrade through Amex, very spacious and immaculate. A bottle of Champagne, compliments of the hotel, was awaiting on the first evening with a tray of mouthwatering petit fours, which didn't last long !!! The aircon worked perfectly and the beds would cure even the worse case of insomnia !
I could go on for hours ! If you are only passing this place, or should that be palace ? Pop in for a drink, sit on the terrace and indulge in this pure luxury. Must dash, need to earn some money !!!
