Antibes or Juan les Pins for family w/ teens

hi...we are a family of 4 going to either Antibes or Juan les Pins for 3 nights in mid-June.
Been reading a lot of info. here and still don't have a firm grasp on where is best to stay!
Looking at Antibes or Juan les Pins for smaller town feel with ability to go to beach, walk around town and hop on train to Nice for museums/promenade
These 2-3 days we will beach/pool one day and sightsee around the rest of the time. Haven't decided if we will have a car (will be flying or training in from Paris and then heading to Cinque Terre for 3 days via train afterwards.) Any advice regarding town and specifically hotel would be great.
I am overwhelmed with information!!!

Antibes and Juan les Pins are practically next door to each other. In fact, Juan les Pins is considered a part of the commune of Antibes.

I have been to both but stayed in Antibes...really a cute, small town with a nice beach, a small market and a wonderful museum where Picasso lived and painted.

There's more night-life in Juan les Pins if that's what you are looking for and probably a younger crowd.As far as beaches, it is practically the same as Antibes but more crowded.

Joyc - thanks. We have 2 teens so nightlife isn't really what we are looking for - just beach and cute french town. Merci for your insight!

From my experience (and that of all the 20-somethings in my family) you can't go wrong with either one!
