The next morning, we went to the beach the before breakfast. The beach charge for chairs is 15€ per chair, which also includes a parasol and lounge. Towels were available at the hotel. We crossed the beach. Yes, they charge a lot on Riviera beaches, but in Nice, the beach is gravel, and you cannot really sit on the beach unless you can bring special thick spread. You do not have a choice. Plus, the beach attendants also rollout the runners, which helps you walk. We did not go to the water because we did not bring water shoes, as I had forgotten. We sat a little bit on the beach, walked in flip-flops in the water, and then went back to hotel to have breakfast. The breakfast was a buffet: good pastries, fruit, some eggs, cold cuts, salmon, and the usual staff. It was not an elaborate selection, but of good quality. After breakfast, we went to use the pool. One of the reasons we chose Le Meridien over Westminster was because it had pool on the rooftop. They charge 15€ per person per day. We reserved for half a day for 16€. For these money, the pool attendant helps you to choose the place – in the shade or in the sun, gets an umbrella and towels, and generally lets you sunbathe very comfortable. I am a picky customer, since I always alternate between sun and shade, and we got our money’s worth for the pool attendant replacing umbrellas to follow our movements.
The views are terrific from rooftop – all 360 degrees. We stayed there until noon and went back to hotel to pack and check out. We thought to use Internet, but it cost 20€ per hour, so we passed on this.
