“The best spot in Boracay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

First off I love food. I believe that part of your adventure in traveling in trying out the local foods. With that, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need. We enjoyed going to the market and shopping for food and cooking the local products there at our suite. They also have room service but it really was fun going out to the local market to buy something to cook ourselves. The beach really lacked, the speed boats were put away, but we still enjoyed sunbathing. One thing did get under my skin though. We had and employee of the hotel following us around in case we needed anything. When we got to the beach we did need him for some towels which he ran off right away to get but after that there was no need for him, and yet he stayed next to us as we relaxed. I finally asked him to go off and have a smoke break or go talk to some friends, that we would like some privacy, and so he agreed, walked away about 50 feet, sat down and went back to shadowing us. It is great if you insist on having someone wait on you hand and foot, which some people do, but for me it was annoying. To be honest though that is my only complaint. We went horseback riding from a nearby stable. Got to visit a lot of the local shopping areas. I didn't take any but there were A LOT of parasailing and other extreme type of events along the beaches. They also have a resort van that takes you to and from wherever you need to go. For the suite itself, the bedroom was spacious, as was the bathroom, and a sizeable living room. And when you walk out, a very beautiful view. If I go back to Boracay again I will definitely be checking out this place again.

Room Tip: I contacted them two months in advance and got a special deal.

We stayed for 8 days at Monaco suites from 19th to 27th Jan... we couldnt have asked for anything better. the whole experience was excellent and we cant praise the staff enough for there constant hard work, excellent service and most of all the genuine happy smiling faces. We will be going back as soon as we can. The shuttle service to the beach and D'mall ensure you get the best of both worlds... peace and quiet at the hotel then the busy beaches and nightlife in the main town if you want it. The trip is only 10-15 mins and always run on time (on the hour to the D'mall and half past to the beach)

This was our best holiday ever and that is down mailny to Monaco Suites....

Room Tip: all rooms have massive balconies with sea views but top floor are best

We went to Boracay and our stay at Monaco really couldn't have been better! The service was outstanding, from the reception we received at check-in, to the very well-organized, free, frequent transportation to the beach/mall areas, to the housekeeping. The room we got must have been the best room in the house: it was HUGE, we had a high, unobstructed view of the ocean, not to mention the big balcony. The only complaint was that the A/C just couldn't keep up perfectly, and we really had to have it running round the clock in order to stay sufficiently cool at night. The pool was a 4 out of 5, 5 being the best pools at the top hotels in the world. It was pretty big, clean, well-lite, but not overly fancy in design.

For those planning to stay here, remember that the main beaches and mall are on the other side, a quick 5-10 minute free trip by regularly scheduled hotel shuttles. It was actually nice to be away from the crazy hustle and bustle of the station 1-3 hotels. PS the beaches were essentially untouched by the typhoon.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, thank you Monaco!

We stayed at the Monaco Suites during our first visit to Boracay a year ago, so my review is a little dated. The property is located on the Lower Eastern side of the island, away from the crowds on White Beach. The resort provides hourly van transportation to White Beach and also to the beach below the property. The layout and landscape of this resort is outstanding, and the pool is large enough for lap swimming. The suites are large, and spacious, but the furnishing is in bad need of upgrading. Also, the decor is more in keeping with a Winter ski resort than a sunny, tropical beach setting, Having said that, the staff are very nice and accommodating. The restaurant is arguably better than the majority of the tourist traps on White Beach. Given our large suite with full kitchen and dining space, we often ordered room service and were never disappointed. My girl friend is Filipina and often ordered Filipina meals that were not on the menu. Since we were there over New Years, we celebrated with a very nice buffet, floor show, dancing and fireworks at the resort. We both have fond memories of the manager dressed up as an Elvis impersonator; overall a very nice event.

Assuming the resort has plans to upgrade the suite furnishing, I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Any suite facing east toward the ocean. The views are outstanding.

1. Nice service
Every staff ( almost, they have the female staff in the front desk with worse English ability. My boyfriend was mad about her) here are really friendly. They really care about your need and feeling.

2. Less sun
I afraid the sunshine directly. Actually the location of the hotel on the island make the sunlight only applies directly in the morning. So that u can enjoy the sunlight in the shadow. This is my personally common~

3. Beautiful beach
Actually the two beach of the hotel are more beautiful than the main beach on the island. The long beach is fulling of the seaweed on it.

And the nice room! Just stay on the chair of your balcony to see the sea view. It can take you the whole day!

Having travelled globally I do not exaggerate when I say Monaco Suites is the best hotel I have stayed in. Although small it delivers 5- Star standards in all respects. The whole site is impeccably maintained with real attention to detail (quite rare in the Philippines!). The staff are warm, friendly & helpful. Buffet breakfast offers a wide choice, something for all tastes and decent coffee. You can enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the restaurant terrace overlooking the pool to the sea. Pool is a decent size and not crowded at all. The apartments are fantastic, beautifully furnished, immaculate and huge. What a joy it was each morning to open the bedroom doors and step out onto the full length terrace to admire the seaview and breathe in the fresh sea air.
We really were sorry to leave.
