Approx 8 min walk from main beach-so well located. Really good sized room (family room for two adults and two kids) with large balcony- useful for storing beach equipment and drying towels. Good buffet breakfast in the lovely garden was 40 Euros. Well worth it. Large, secure car park. Relaxed, friendly staff.
Nice place but service need to be update.

The hotel is well located 5 min walk to the beach.
The room was clean and enough space and good rate.
The only problem that we got there is parking.. to enter and exit from the parking nobody was there to opened several time. need to call the reception with our phone to opened the gate. when we complaint they say the don't have extra beep to opened but hey charge us the parking fee. 2nd the entrance from the parking is locked need to ring to opened the door but took top much time to opened 10 min all the time. Just this not make our stay comfortable.

We went four people, we had a great time, comfortable, the staff are helpful. Very comfortable with everything, close to the beach, bus station and shops. I will return to next summer for a longer period. Worth for the pearls, very clean and fresh hotel. I can only recommend!
Good Location, Helpful Staff, Attractive Room

This hotel is a very good location about 8-10 minutes walk from Juan-les-Pins train station, about 5 minutes to sea (8 minutes to public sandy beach), about 3 minutes to supermarket open late and to Airport Express shuttle to Nice Airport (11 Euros). Also close to bus that can take you to Cannes if you want to take bus instead of train.
Staff helpful in advising where can get relevant buses or how to walk to Antibes (though they recommended most direct route which was also the busiest street, ask them about some street like President Wilson which is direct but not as busy).
I had a superior double which overlooked Pauline Gardens. Gardens close at 8 pm. Windows fairly good soundproofing though the street cleaning machine, if early morning, does penetrate the glass. If noise bothers you, make sure outer window is closed all the way; sometimes the cleaner opens it. No noise from inside hotel and with windows shut, little noise (aside from street cleaner) from outside. Nice balcony with chairs and table.. Dividers separated it from next units. Got sunlight starting about 1 pm when I was there (early June) to about 7 pm.
BBC 1 and BBC 2 English-language station.
Room was attractively furnished. I would have liked the bright red highlight décor but that is only on lower floors. But room had grey highlights which were very elegant. Clean modern bathroom, enough shelf space and storage space.
Staff very helpful. I could not figure out how to turn on the air-conditioner (remote hidden in a drawer); staff came up, found remote, and showed me how to use remote to turn air-conditioning and fan on and off. I pointed out the hall where the closet and some shelves were was very dark. He agreed, and brought me in an additional floor light so I had enough light. I found the toilet being in the hall around the corner from the bathroom somewhat strange but that was me.
Fridge small and sometimes leaked though I tried to keep door shut but it did work.
Les Strelitzias has a washer (4 euros) and dryer (washer has its own soap which is good or bad depending on how sensitive you are to soap) but is open only to 7 pm so guests nearby are not disturbed (which is reasonable). When I wanted to use it, another guest was doing 2 loads and I would not have been able to get a wash/dry in before 7 pm. Did not want to get into an argument (in French) so went to another Laundromat at 4 rue de Vilmorin which is about 1.5 blocks away. Come out of hotel, walk down Rue Pauline to big street of Raymond Poincare, turn left on Raymond Poincare and walk 1 block to Rue de Vilmorin (maybe Avenue Vilmorin) and about three buildings up on right-hand side. It is open to 9 pm. More expensive (5.5 euros for wash), I think about 1 Euro for 14 minutes (can't remember exactly), but 4 or 5 washing machines at 5.5 euros, several bigger more expensive ones, and about 3 dryers. Clean. Bring own detergent or buy from them. Les Strelitzias is cheaper, but only 1 washer, 1 dryer, and closes at 7 p.m.
Also good bakery nearby. Juan-les-Pins does not have quaint squares like Antibes; I did walk into and back from Antibes which is definitely more charming, more restaurants, etc. Wall around Antibes so can walk around and see sea but not like Juan-les-Pins where can walk along boardwalk, sit in a cafe or restaurant and view sea. Seemed to be very few hotels in Antibes, especially if did not have car. In Juan-les-Pins could be near sea and near railway.
Note that ticket machines in Riviera are somewhat tricky to use, only 1 at Juan-les-Pins took ordinary credit cards so could be line-ups to buy tickets at machines and ticket office and you missed trains. About every half an hour to Cannes/Grasse (1 direction) or Nice (the other). So if you can, buy tickets the day before. Be sure to stamp your ticket. Ticket checking is erratic but it does happen.
