Anyone ever been to the French Riviera? Thoughts on hotels to stay in or places to see?

was there last year,nice le meridian,rooms are a bit small although the view can't be beat,we were upgraded to  a suite with a nice sized porch,lounge chairs! nice amount of restaurants,minyanim within 20 minutes walking distance. you can take a 5 minute tram to the train station and make a day trip to Monaco or Cannes,both around 20 minute train rides away,both beautiful places,and in the summertime they have a bit more kosher food options as well there! really a great vacation spot! although i must warn you,it is a very populated tourist destination in the summer,so availability is a bit limited. good luck and any questions let me know!!!!

also,all tourist attractions are all along the coast,our concierge was very helpful! In monaco they have a daily changing of the guards,cute actually and the entire area is walkable,just allot of steps,although well worth it!

After DME if we do it at all. Although there is a slight possibility we will be go in Spring as well to France and then try to get there then instead of during the summer trip.
