The hotel itself was ok but I thought a little old fashioned. The rooms were very clean and the staff were friendly except for the "Nicholas Cage' concierge who could not speak very good English and was not particularly helpful. We were there on a half board basis and although the food was delicious the drinks were exorbitant - £43.00 for a vodka and coke and a lemon cello!!! Dinner each evening was a rather formal affair and the hotel does not provide any entertainment. Forte is lovely and very chic but is so so expensive. We hired bikes and managed to cycle out of Forte and found some cheaper cafes in the neighbouring town. We also went to the supermarket to stock up before heading for the beach as it is really difficult to purchase anything down by the beach unless you want to pay 5 star prices. My overall impression is that the hotel and resort are hugely overpriced especially with the sterling to euro exchange rate. I wouldn't mind if I was staying in absolute luxury in Monte Carlo but this is an average hotel in an average resort. Nothing special and although we had a nice time (despite the severe dent in my wallet) I would not go back.
