CONCLUSION

This is a modern, spacious lounge (thanks to the refurbishment this year where an extension was made) offering snacks, refreshments and open bar. There were not so many guests during our stay although the extension was actually opened when we were about to leave the lounge which could mean more guests would be using it shortly. Unlike the main seating area, the extension has a more "summer vibe" with all the furniture and bright design, which is perfect to represent the city of Nice. I thought the food offering were okay as well as the alcoholic drinks selection, which I believe used to be for sale. Wifi was also complimentary. For a short time to relax and have some snacks before your flight, this lounge is very good.
