This was our second visit to Vegas and previously stayed at Caesars - much prefer the Monte Carlo it was just perfect. Lovely hotel and everything within the hotel was within easy access for every guest.
Location of MC on the strip was pretty central and had the added advantage of a free mono rail between Mandalay Bay one way and the Bellagio the other way. Great service. Access to this mono rail is just a short walk via "Street of Dreams" which is adjacent to the Lobby, the Food Hall and Casino.
Rooms were clean and spacious. Only down side was the bathroom towels. Some were frayed and with holes, but were clean and changed daily. So this was only a very small flaw. Shower was great and had plenty of hot water. Unfortunately no fridge in room but not a problem for us, as there was an ice machine on each floor by the elevator. Safe in each room - free of charge. Plus iron & ironing board and hair dryer. Some people have commented that the MC is dated in it's decor but we found it comfortable and in keeping with the hotel. These people must be looking for ultra chic glass & steel decor.
The pool entrance was adjacent to the Lobby and elevators. So you did not have to walk miles to the pool like in some hotels. You had to show your room card for entry. Likewise for the pool towels. No outside drinks allowed - they did check. However, not a problem as you could either purchase drinks from the pool side waitresses or they had a water cooler which dispensed ice cold water - free! You could find a sunbed quite easily but due to the height of the hotel itself, in some places in was in the shade until the sun came around. This was the case in other hotels that we visited. The Lazy River was fun and you can hire a ring to float around. Or they have another pool just for people to swim around in. The Wave Pool was for me the best. Came on about every 15 minutes. Gentle sweeping waves.
Food Hall very good with choice of eating options and had something for everyone. Subways, McDonalds, Pizza section etc., and of course Starbucks our life saver. Shame it closed at 11pm although Subways was 24 hours. There was also another Starbucks at the end of "Street of Dreams". The Big Belly Buffet was on par with other hotels and good selection.
Casino was good. Had a good atmosphere and feeling and comfortable to play in. We did win on the machines, so that was an added bonus!
So for us it was a lovely stay, as prior to going, booked a show for each evening - all of these shows were great. - Love, Human Nature, Legends, V-Variety, MJ Live and Donny & Marie Osmond. Would, without a doubt book at MC again.
