A big part of me doesn't want to review this hotel because I don't want anyone else to know about it--it's too good, in some ways too good to be true. My husband and I always say that if we had to design the perfect small hotel this would be it. Scores of reviews say the same thing and no wonder they consistently win awards. We are repeaters, having spent a glorious 2 February weeks for the fifth year in a row at L'Esplanade. We have stayed in almost all the types of suites they offer and they are all great--tastefully appointed, immaculate, and elegantly understated. The beds are dream-inducing, The staff through and through are both accessible and friendly, and the owners will stop at nothing to ensure your needs are attended to. Kristin and Mark are the very models of hospitality. Location is also superb, 'on a hill, above the rest,' about an 8-minute walk down a lushly landscaped footpath to the French restaurant-rich town of Grand Cas, where you want to be every evening after you have watched the sunset from your balcony, cocktail in hand. And every morning you can breakfast on that balcony overlooking the sea, surrounded by hummingbirds and palm trees. The traveler who doesn't like L'Esplanade doesn't like life.
