“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Great travel experience for my family. Check in was easy, staff was friendly and we loved our ocean front room. The pools were fabulous as was the beach. Very pleased to find it was a sandy beach and not the usual rocky beach that we are accustomed to on the Med. Ate at the pool bar several times but our favorite restaurant was Lorenzo's that was a short walk from the hotel. The hotel itself is very conveniently located for sight-seeing and we appreciated the local bus right outside of the hotel. Overall we felt very welcome and very safe and have to say it is one of our favorite hotels in the world!

Room Tip: Go for ocean view on a higher floor - apparently it's quieter than the city view rooms. Definite...

From the onset, booking in was a pleasure, room was fantastic, staff helpful. Looked after my every need and have already recommended this hotel to friends. Easy access to all the sites, local bus outside. Have never wrote a review before, however this stay warranted it.

My wife and I visited Monaco and booked 2 nights at Le Meridien. The hotel is located near the end of Monaco. Monaco is so small so you don't need to walk that far to get to the casino or shopping area. Some of the staff was friendly but a few were like mute. Walked past us without even looking at us or saying hello. The hotel is located right on the beach so you don't have to go far. Room was average size and very clean. The decor is modern and the rooms are clean. The mattress is very firm so If you enjoy a soft mattress you won't get a good night sleep here. Don't bother ordering room service because the price is cut throat. 30 euros for a hamburger not including tip. You can go to Mcdonalds and get a meal for 7 euros. I would of given this hotel a higher rating if not for the mattress, some of the staff that walks by and pretend not to notice you, and the rip off prices of the menu.

Noisy Hotel

Sound insulation is the missing factor at the Meridian Beach Resort in Monaco.

The lack of good double glazing means that the constant noise made traffic that passes by at ground level and on a road which passes the hotel several stories up, is constantly heard and is very annoying.

There really is something disturbing about sitting on the lavatory in the bathroom and clearly hearing someone use the same facility immediately above your head. It makes one feel as if you should rush to wear the shower cap.

Corporate robotic staff stick to corporately written scripts when you ask approved questions. Ask non standard questions that are off script they are stuck for an answer.

This is the hotel of extras. You pay for everything as an extra from breakfast to the Internet and even 25 euros for a pair of branded flip flops which are necessary because the room does not come with slippers or even so much as a bath robe.

The Internet costs a staggering 8 euros an hour!

Bottled water in the room costs 8 euros while a beer will set you back 12

The rooms are pleasantly decorated and save for the carpet quite clean

Room Tip: The fifth floor is on a level with a fast road so should be avoided. The double glazing is poor so...

We just stayed four nights September 16 though 20, upon check in we were given an upgraded room on the ninth floor with a view. The room and bed was very comfortable,but no shower which was a problem for my husband. The girl that checked us is was great. The overall feel of the staff
In the front lobby was a little snobbish. As this was booked and paid prior to arrival they would not let us change the so called package to include breakfast which was what we really wanted we then
Inquired on the half board offering which we were told when checking in that's was 55 euro per person. we went to sign up the fowling day and were told by front desk it was 79 euro pp per day
And was very limited? What was limited? Also told us adfitional costs if you ordered certain foods like fish Very vague no paperwork to let us know what a person would actually get. All drinks and food were overpriced a hamburger is 30 euros and a cosmopolitan is 17 Eros. Overall it was just too expensive to stay around and enjoy facilities. We were counting on the breakfast and dinner being included. The beach and pool are very nice as well.

We stayed at the Meridien in Monaco for three nights at the end of our trip. The experience was very mixed. Room was average, balcony small, but view was terrific. Their breakfast spread is superb, only to be outdone by their Sunday brunch which is truly extraordinary. The pool and beach is well laid out and staff are terrific. Location is at the end of Monaco and there are only 80 taxis in the City, so be prepared to walk if you are not going to the airport.

Room Tip: Request a sea view, but be prepared to be underwhelmed by the room itself.

We have stayed in the Meridian before (but also in the Hermitage in Monte Carlo). The reason we chose the Meridian this time was that a) we were driving from the UK so secure parking was easy (underground E46 per day) and b) it has a private beach as well as an outdoor swimming pool plus plenty of sunbathing space and sunloungers. We opted for a sea view, slightly upgraded room which was perfectly adequate with a comfortable amount of space. There were a couple of issues with cleanliness from my point of view but the location is not bad (only a short walk to the centre of Monte). Breakfast is ok..with a buffet type arrangement and not a bad selection of food. One gripe I did have, being English, was that I brough my own tea with me but when I asked for hot water only (so I could put my own teabag in it) the water was luke warm each time. Eventually I gave up and had coffee. I would say that the staff are a bit 'up themselves' but apart from that, it's fine for a short stay.

Room Tip: Pay for an upgraded room if you don't want a balcony that overlooks a conference centre. A sea...
