“Awesome, lovely..a little heaven on earth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

It has been an excellent experience here at Monaco suites for our honeymoon.

The one bedroom suite has a huge balcony overlooking a fantastic view of the sea.
The hotel staff are super-friendly and helpful.
Room service is tip top and efficient.
The shuttle bus is always on time.
Wifi in the room is quite reliable.

Needs improvement: The breakfast buffet. Not much variety and some food tend to be bland.

Must do:
Head on down to Monaco suites' private beach, (free shuttle) Sundown beach, for tanning and swimming at the awesome clear blue water.
Walk from there down to Dmall and White beach area for food, entertainment and souvenirs.

Have a night swim at Monaco's 5ft dolphin pool and order a mango+pineapple juice drink. The pool water is warm even at night and the pool lights are ultra-romantic.

Will definitely come here again as staying here is so peaceful as compared to the crowded White beach area. Thank you Monaco suites for making our honeymoon stay there a memorable one.

This amazing location for these suites are spectacular. Each beach house encompasses each of their own suite with full access to all the amenities they offer. Even though this hotel is located at the other end of the island, they offer van services to the Boracay beaches free of charge until a certain time but if you miss the last call for transportation, you can always get a tricycle for a great amount. The hotel employees are very friendly and accommodating for all needs requested and service with a smile. I highly recommend this for all visitors for this island.

Although Monaco Suites de Boracay is a little off Station 1 -3, you can easily go to the "city" (D'Mall - the supermarket area). Hourly free busses bring you to D'Mall or just take the bus to the private beach part that is inherited by Monaco Suites de Boracay.(at Station 3)

You can find peace here. A well maintained facility with 5 star service just makes it the perfect place for the luxury traveller. And even for the average traveller there are quite a few options.

The view from every villa here is incredible breathtaking. And I've been to quite a few places... ;-)

Enjoy and relax.

Room Tip: All rooms and suites are great.

We stayed at Monaco Suites late December and enjoyed the 2 bedroom suite. For the price it was a great value. The suite was extremely spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. The balcony wraps around the entire suite and provides a generous and incredible view to the ocean. Breakfast buffet is free of charge there and they have an excellent variety to satiate any breakfast food you may be craving. Dinner at the hotel is a real treat. They have a good chef and the selection is diverse enough to satisfy. The landscaping is well kept, and the atmosphere of the place really does give you the, "Ahhh!" i'm on vacation feel. The staff is really good. They provide you with a sheet listing all of the activities they can setup for your itinerary each day. There are many activities they supply transport and service to such as: Cliff Jumping, Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Parasailing, Jet Skiing, and Wind Surfing to name the more common things. The only real drawback to me was the beach where the property resides is a bit small but the other amenities that I have listed make it not a big deal at all. To be honest many would probably wand to hit the main beach, and the shuttle service is compliments to the hotel and runs every hour until midnight. The commute is maybe 5-10 minutes max to D'mall and the main beach. Overall, very comfortable and relaxing experience with the hotel, and many enjoyable activities to experience in Boracay.

I visited the resort with my fiancée, and the experience could not have been better! The resort brought us over on their private speedboat, and drove us right to the door of our suite. The suite was immaculate, with a full kitchen, spacious living area, large bedroom, and very large, clean bathroom/shower, and a terrace providing a wonderful view of the ocean. The staff was very friendly and very attentive to our needs. The buffet breakfast was excellent (lots of fresh fruit in addition to a variety of breads and cooked foods.) When we got moving late and were close to missing the buffet breakfast, the staff called our room and held it open for us! We typically used their room service for dinner, and their chef really outdid himself on the meals. We had (among other things) the best pasta Bolognese I have ever had.
The facility has a beautiful dolphin shaped infinity pool and a boat dock, but no significant beach area on the premises. It is also driving distance away from the beach, the other resorts, and the crowds. This is a good thing! It gave us the choice of a very private setting (the resort itself), or the private beach they had down in the hotel/ mall/beach area. They would drive you down to the beach and back on request, or you could wait for the shuttle.
The concierge was also able to arrange whatever activity you might be interested in. We asked for a boat tour, and they arranged for a private boat (just my fiancée, myself, and the crew) to come to their dock and take us on a tour, with activities of our choosing, including a private island (Crystal Cove) we could tour and a large sea cave.
I have stayed in places all over the world, but my experience at the Monaco was by far the best. And it was the efforts of the staff that really made this experience special. If you have the opportunity, this is the place to stay in Boracay!
(note: we traveled in 2012, but the site did not have a drop down option for that.)

We booked a two bedroom suite because our parents were coming with us but they pulled out at the end and hotel could not swap room for us so we ended up with a huge apartment all to ourselves. Price was at USD 300 per night. The first impression was that the hotel compound is very nicely laid out that allows every room to have ocean view. The room we got in had very big balcony with 180 degree of ocean view. It is so relaxing we didn't want to go anywhere. Just hang out at our balcony reading and taking a nap - and have our snacks while looking over the beautiful clear ocean is already a rewarding and satisfying vacation for us.

Service - excellent
Location - only 10-12mins from D'mall and white beach or php 150-200 ride of tricycle
Room - cool AC but curtain and blinds were old so one of them didn't work when we try to adjust the blinds. There are actually 3 bedrooms in this two bed suite. The last one is small with single bed while the other two rooms have king and queen size beds. I suspect the last room was designed for a family that travel with a maid. Kitchen is big with dishwasher, stove and a full size fridge. One of the sinks faucet became lose and may need a repair.
View- excellent despite no proper access to beach
Activities - free kayak and gym
Swimming pool - too small but beautiful as it is in the edge and you can swim with ocean view
Food- breakfast was not excellent but staff were so enthusiastic that made experience ok. We still went out and eat our own meal at D mall though. Food is not terrible but we are just very picky. We want to eat excellent three meals a day in each day of our vacation. We never eat at hotel for any meals.
Transport - hotel offers pick up from airport but charge 4x higher than if you just hire a tricycle and support the poor individuals making a living of charging PHP 100-150 per ride. Hotel provide free shuttle bus to/from beach and Dmall. We found it too crowded from hotel to those locations but never crowded on way back to hotel. I suspect because people have choices to take tricycle and don't bother to wait for bus every hour


Aria is our most favorite Italian place at D'mall and sushi shiro is best for sushi

I bought pearl necklace and earrings. I want to support people there.

Dear nattana,

Thank you for your wonderful review about us here in Monaco Suites de Boracay. We were sad to know that your parents was not able to come with you and since we were fully booked then, we could not move you to another room category. Thank you for pointing out the good traits of our resort. It certainly made our daily work more enjoyable in knowing that our service exceeds your expectations.

We apologize about your experience with the sink and the curtains. Our rooms now are in the process of reconstruction to be redesigned into a more modern look, and one of our goals is to replace these curtains. Also, we are improving our food selection, that hopefully on your next visit, you will be able to find something that you'd like on our breakfast buffet.

We would definitely love to have you back here with us on the next time that you'll visit Boracay. For quick reservations, you may get in touch with us through our email info@monacosuitesboracay.com or reservations@monacosuitesboracay.com

As everyone mentions, the staff was excellent. The hotel is very nice and great manicured grounds. There really isn't a beach at the hotel and the snorkeling is marginal at best. The pool is great. The ride to the town is a short one but the beaches had a lot of people. I probably will stay at Shangra La in the future. For the price there should be a beach. Nothing the hotel can do to rectify it. That being said, I am very happy wig the hotel, service, extremely nice room. Everything was very nice and first class. I just prefer to have a beach that's not so crowded.

Dear goldhopper,

Greetings from Monaco Suites de Boracay!

Thank you for taking time in writing a review about your Monaco experience.The continuous praise about our staff gives us drive to do better and makes us happy at the end of the day. We appreciate it that you were able to point out the good points of our service and of the resort itself.

We always highlight our resort as a perfect escape for the crowd on the beach although we were somehow affected by the local ordinance regarding the maintenance of our beach. We offer also an option to our guests to visit our beachfront located in Station 3, which is also a quiet part of the beach front and has lesser crowd. Currently, we are on the planning stage on developing our beachfront, with the approval from the local government, we very positive that on your next visit you will find it more appealing and would make your stay here with us worthwhile.

That said, we would look forward to have you here with us again. For faster and hassle free reservations, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us! You may email us at info@monacosuitesboracay.com or call us at +63-36-288-4800.
