St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is one of the most beautiful places in the world and this hotel only helps to solidify that view. The hotel itself is fantastic with a gorgeous entrance, sitting area and wonderful outdoor pool with some great lighting at night.

We recently hosted a conference for 20 delegates coming all the way from Australia. We were treated with utmost professionalism and no ask was ever too much. The staff, the food, the venue, the location met with all we could expect and more. Our delegates have all expressed their satisfaction and their desire to return. Thank you Hotel Royal-Riviera!

Lovely views having breakfast on the terrace. Staff very friendly and attentive. Small bedroom, but good sized bathroom. Room looked out to train track. Only 3 stops from Monte Carlo on the train, which was very reasonable. Not many restaurants here, but very clean and quiet resort. We were here May 2015, but not given that option.
