“Bling”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Over rated full of the oldest swingers in town trying to impress the young chicks with their Ferraris and Lamborginis. Time to grow up boys!

“Monaco as seen from Essex?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

That's the description I heard from another recent visitor - but yes we enjoyed it and no we're not from Essex. Loads of gin palaces, overpriced boutiques, Ferraris cruising past, eye candy etc. - but also excellent bars and restaurants, great for people-watching, and plenty going on, even towards the end of the season when we visited (late October).

We were lucky with the weather (spectacularly good) but staying just outside PB and walking in (when we felt like it) or not (when we didn't) suited us very well. (The beach east of the marina and over the new pedestrian bridge is fine.) So pack the resort jewellery, the diamond Rolex and the designer jeans and hop on a flight. It's a lot of fun.

“Really not much to it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The beach wasn't very nice and we went in October - it was all families and no younger people and it was a little bit grubby in my opinion. Maybe pop by but not worth spending too much time on.

“Thought provoking yet fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

A great place to people watch. People watching the people and those who are who are watching the people watch the people etc. Obviously many there to see how the other half live, some beautiful boats and cars on view, a lot on rental at exorbitant prices no doubt. Some lovely little restaurants on the quayside that are cheaper than the designer shops in abundance there. Worth a look round.
