“Nice Location”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Recently visited the club on a day pass. Stunning looking venue with great facilities for winding down and having a lazy day. The pool terrace is breathtaking and the amenities and staff were top.

On the down side - it is a little on the expensive side when what you get is functionally in line with a 4 star hotel (gym, pool, restaurant). It also has very little relation to the beach for a beach club with no water sports offered.

Dear Murray A,

I'm glad you enjoyed your last visit to the club and find it to be a beautiful venue. I will consider your comments on the pricing but please keep in mind that the true value in using the club is when you take an annual membership and use the club frequently. Please ask for me the next time you visit and I would be happy to discuss your comments and thoughts on this further.

Regards,

Bill Loveday

“Perfect facilities and service makes for a lovely day at the beach”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The facilities and beach are beautiful and the service is fantastic. I would definitely go back to take advantage of all the facilities such as the restaurants and spa treatments. I am not sure i saw all that there is to offer. a map of the place would be good for day pass users. Good place for a relaxing day at the beach, pool, spa or a more lively day renting a cabana and having cocktails.

My taxi had trouble finding the place and we had to stop at a hotel and ask for directions.

Dear GLMdallas,

I'm glad that you enjoyed your time at the club, thank you for taking the time to post your kind comments. The next time you visit ask for myself or a member of our member relations team to give you a tour and explain the entire offering. The good news is that as the development on Saadiyat Island is growing, the taxi drivers are becoming more familiar with our location. See you soon at the club!

Regards,

Bill Loveday

Dear AndrewCLOUT,

Thank you for the nice comments and taking the time to post them. We are just finishing up a refurbishment of our Sea Lounge nightclub and it will have glass window and door enclosures to extend the season and deflect the cold sea breezes over the winter months. Check it out the first week of October!

“Stunning but extremely expensive......”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We have been here 2 or 3 times, and there is no doubt it is the most beautiful Beach Club in Abu Dhabi. The location is stunning, the facilities are all immaculate, and the pool is breathtaking. However it is an extremely expensive day out. I realise they are aiming at the 'Premium' market, however the fact that certainly during the week, the pool and beach area are pretty much empty, shows I believe that the place has priced itself out of the market. However for a special day out, and closing your eyes to the prices for anything you have once there, it really is a beautiful place.

Dear AffinityGirl,

Thank you for your lovely comments about our club, we also feel that it is a beautiful venue. Thank you also for your perspective on the pricing of the entrance fees to access the club for non-members. The value represented by the club and the experiences it provides are amplified when an annual membership is taken. In addition to the average cost of a day spread over the day, our members also receive a 25% discount on food and beverages as well as discounts on spa and other services. I will take account of your comments and consider what we might do for weekdays as you mentioned. Please keep and eye out for a weekday promotion!

Regards,

Bill Loveday

“Disappointing.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

The Monte Carlo bills itself as a chic and elite beach club. When it opened it that's exactly what it was. Slowly, these standards have slipped. So much so that the management was recently replaced. Unfortunately it seems the standards have slipped even further. An afternoon around the pool now involves screaming children with pool noodles and their oblivious parents, and chavs bragging to their friends in loud voices about how much they can drink. "Monte Carlo"? Not so much. Costa del Sol is more like it.

Dear Maher23,

I'm sorry that your last visit was disappointing. Recently, many of the villas and residences on Saadiyat have become filled and these families are choosing the Monte-Carlo Beach Club as their leisure club of choice. I understand your points on too many children in the pool on some days, we are developing a program of children's activities to enhance the experience for the kids in areas away from the pool. Please feel free to contact me to discuss the future plans for the club.

Regards,
