“Nearly perfect”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

Stayed here with a couple of friends for the Fiesta week.

Overall, the aesthetics of the place are great. It's obvious that Sandos have spent a lot of money on the place and on the whole it's spotless and comfortable.

We stayed all inclusive and for the first 3 days were a little unsure as to what we could actually have under the scheme. We did ask but were left even more confused. Drinks wise, I think it's a case of ask and see! (If you like Smirnoff, ask for Smirnoff, ohterwise you get the paint thinner!)

Food wise - well, let's just say that meal times were more of a necessity than an enjoyable experience. Generally, the food was luke warm to the verge of cold. The plates were always untouchably hot (I think they might have got this concepts in the wrong order) I also found the food to be lacking in any taste, and if I see Kidney Pie again I will commit Hari Kari.

Bedrooms and connecting corridors are top notch and the bathrooms are spacious and well equipped (the only niggle with the rooms is the bedside light is directly above your head on the wall and made out of 10 inch thick glass. We had a few occasions where getting into and out of bed nearly involved a trip to A&E with concussion!)

I would definately stay here again though. I don't think you can get a better location - close enough to everything but far enough away so as it's not on your doorstep.

Room Tip: Be mindfull of the lifts - if they don't like you they will let you know quite vocally!

Staff are Top Class PEPE,& EDWIN make sure all is well in the Bar .Eleana at Reception likes to learn Scottish phrases ie, Awright Pal . So remember to leave her with some good ones.
It is so easy to feel comfortable in this Hotel. It is spotlessly clean and efficiently run. Everything fits the bill, all you need to do is soak in the atmosphere.
The only complaint is, the Karaoke is through 1 speaker, and the the girl fiddles about with the control knobs, which distorts the sound quality when singing .( Anyway ,that is my story )
Dont think twice about this Hotel it is excellent.
The Fiesta is out of this world as is the fancy dress at 24 hour square. Equal distance to both from the Sandos Monaco.

Room Tip: I can only state that my room on floor 8 suited us.

My parents just got back a week ago and have asked me to put a review on, they really enjoyed a weeks stay the room was spacious and clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, the drinks were great not the usual all inclusive drinks, my mum had a great facial and said it was worth everypenny, we are all hoping to return next year. They said is by far the best hotel in Benidorm.

Just returned from Benidorm, the Sandos Monaco was even better than last year. The food was fantastic. The variety of food was amasing .Everyday we had a special dish of the day and the chef was there serving it himself, always hot, always appetising, we were even able to have bucks fizz for breakfast. One day the chef did a paella demonstration, it was great to watch and very nice to eat.
The hotel has a brilliant location for both the new and old town areas .Easy walking distance to all areas and the sea front.
The staff were great, always friendly.

Room Tip: stayed 3 times, found all the rooms to be nice and spacious.

We booked through Jet2 holidays for 10 nights. After a disastrous start to our holiday in Sharm el Sheik last year ( which Jet2 sorted BRILLIANTLY), me and my hubby were a bit apprehensive.
However, we had absolutely nothing to worry about. The hotel is nicely placed for Old Town and New Town, attractions, nightlife and beach. The reception was quick easy and staff helpful, pleasant and polite. Our room was on fourth floor so not too many steps,( I don't do lifts). It was plenty of room for two, (although would have been a bit cramped for four), despite two double beds in there. Flat screen tv of a large size, nice decor, clean and tidy. Balcony overlooked walkway to hotel . Bathroom was spacious , with bath and shower, towels changed as you required( by leaving them on floor) toiletries replenished daily. Hairdryer, and of nice decor. Pool was as they say, cold and shaded most of time, but it was mid October, and tower blocks surround hotel. Went in a couple of times , was ok once in it. Sun loungers always available. Pool bar was under rebuild, so temporary one set up, staff polite and pleasant at all times, plenty of choice of drinks. Building work did not disturb us too much. Restaurant was large and plenty of tables. Food was varied and enjoyable, Roast beef was gorgeously cooked. Can't remember last time I ate two three course meals and a full brekkie on a daily basis. Wine and lager on help yourself pumps in restaurant at lunch and dinner. Evening bar was good clean and tidy too, entertainment not much. We went to town most nights after dinner to enjoy tribute acts, plenty to choose from. Overall we had a FANTASTIC ten night stay there, would certainly stay there again if returning to Benidorm. Sandos Monaco , keep up the good work.

Last time in Benidorm was 27 years ago, I have just returned from a fantastic stay at the Sandos Monaco Hotel & spa, this hotel is underrated it should be 5 star!!!!., it has a great location, friendly staff, rooms are modern with huge bathrooms and lovely balconies, it caters for everybodys taste buds fantastic array of good quality food and drink, Raquel the entertainment wizard puts on a show loved the bingo song, I thought the entertainment was great as was the hotel patio area and pools..
We took advantage of the daily spa offers advertised at reception good value for money was the 2 for 1 deal on the thermal pools circut at 15Euro we had the place to our self on thursday morning think its tue, thurs they have other great deals on massage etc.
This hotel is highly recommemended they have regular guests returning year after year, that says it all. I will defineatly be back.

This hotel is really nice as most say and its spotlessly clean with good staf etc etc, but one big letdown for us was the food - or rather the temperature of it, nearly all the hot food was cold or just lukewarm, not very appetising and this happened all day everyday. Others have mentioned this in previous reviews and i dont know if some just turn a blind eye because the rest of the hotel is so nice but im afraid when you have paid for food as an all inclusive package i would like mine to be hot and not on the verge of giving me food poisoning. Another small gripe was our bedroom had an adjoining door obviously if you had family next to you, we didnt and door was locked but it was sooooo thin you could hear EVERYTHING going on next door as if they were in youre room so if you want a relaxing holiday ask for a room that doesnt have an adjoining door.

Room Tip: Rooms with adjoining door are noisy
