Rated 5 out of 5 by GJA68 Two-Day Stay at Le Meridien on Aug 27-29, 2013
We stayed at Le Meridien (second time) as part of a Cote D'Azur, Monaco and Lake Como vacation. We were there for two nights and overall, our experience was excellent. I am SPG Platinum and I stay in hotels about 75 days a year for business - so I would consider myself demanding but fair. This hotel exceeded my expectations and given the fact that it has a private beach, it offered an excellent balance of a place to relax during the day and close proximity to shopping and Casino Square.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Springer Not what it used to be
Obviously as the only MC hotel with it's own beach the Beach Plaza is always worth a look. But its not what it used to be. Too many conferences and group booking mean that the staff no longer recognise regulars let alone SPG members and frankly the reception staff in particular are arrogant beyond belief. If you're at a conference it's fine but there are better places to stay in MC now which are closer to the center and offer good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OliverW Smart professional hotel
All very good. My only two minor grumbles are (a) there was no booklet in the room outlining all the services available in the hotel e.g. info on bars, pool opening hours etc. and (b) I got conflicting info about whether or not I needed a passport to get into the main Casino (you don;t to get in the public section, but do to get into the private section). Alsom, the room was very hot and I couldn't really control the heating. But I am being picky - on the whole it was great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Laurie14 Best Action-Packed Hotel
Check-in was extremely profession & the staff spoke fluent English. The restaurant was incredible w/a Sommelier on staff. He was warm, charming & knowledgeable in all wines. And this was our lunch. No pressure to leave even though it was packed w/people waiting to get a table.
The people-watching can NOT be beat anywhere in the world. Extremely chic. Both men & women. Overall a great experience that I will repeat in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Oerlie52 All is great but....
The hotel was a good as it always has been. The fact that is has a natural beach and sea access is a major plus.
However, with the room rates one pays, I would Wi-Fi to be included and not charged at ludicrous prices. Most people nowadays need it for work or even private related matters, and I would be much classier to have this included in the service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Andrew1234 Beach hotel in Monte Carlo
One of the only hotels in Monte Carlo with its own private beach, this one is worth a look. Push for a room on the water side - some rooms look straight onto a freeway.
The beach of comfortable, and there is a lot of pool area to relax in, with a range of watersports activities. An indoor pool is available year round.
It's a short walk into town, so you can avoid taxis should you wish.
We were in a "design room" on the SPG floor, which had seen better days, and, oddly, had a large tub but no shower. Holding the spray handset over your head while the bathroom floor got wet quickly lost its appeal.
The buffet breakfast is a good spread with interesting takes on classic breakfast items. Small gripe - why charge SPG platinum members Euro 6 to upgrade from the Continental breakfast option. It's only six euros, but that swings both ways.
This hotel is in a great spot, and, with a little tightening, could be a great hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe35 Bathroom improvement
The room and view from the 11th floor was fabulous however the bathroom was one of the worst I have ever been in for a luxury hotel. There was no shower. In the tub which was very deep and hard to get in and out of was a hand shower but no holder or shower curtain making it impossible for senior citizens to shower.......

Everything about Le Meridian Beach Plaza exceeded our expectations! The room was awesome and our balcony overlooking the sea was wonderful!! We had dinner outside on the restaurants patio. the food was delicious and the service impeccable. the staff was efficient and accomodating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jmansour1 Nice hotel but definitely not a category 6
The hotel has a nice pool and beach area but this certainly isnt a category 6. The rooms are outdated as well as the hotel, it could use a facelift. To me a category 6 is a solid all around property, the fact that the hotel is run down makes it a cat 5 for me. Definitely not worth 20k pts per night. Also service by the pool could be better, nobody walking around to take orders etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nubia9 This hotel has good location for the Tennis Madsters
Hotel very good, location good BUT
I think the prices for internal services are exorbitant: e. g. A water from the fridge in the room € 8.--, WIFI per hour € 8.-- per day 19.--
This when the large number of hotels offer free WIFI. Breakfast € 34.--
I like your hotel and i stayed several times there but these prices are crazy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zwizzer THis hotel represents Le Meridien brand and Starwood at it's finest!
If only the American hotels can do the same!
2nd stay here in last two years..unbelievable setting. Staff, especially Vanessa, provide "over the top" welcome to SPG Platinum. Everyone, from mini-bar service, bellman, front desk, concierge speak better English than I do French.
Leaving now as the Grand Prix gets started...prefer peace and quiet of past week.

I was spend most my hotel points to redeem two rooms for my family before F1 racing day, and the hotel reception was super friendly, excellent room services, and the ocean view is great (with balkonien). I was very enjoy my life in Manoco (Le Méridien Beach Plaza).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Scott83 Nice stay
Our first room had to be changed as the carpet was very wet, and the staff moved us without a fuss. The second room was very clean and comfy. We did find it strange that there was no way of having a normal shower as the shower head had no way to mount to the wall, but we managed. Overall we found the staff very helpful and polite.

I asked for a handicapped room. We were happy to discover that the room was actually accessible with a wheelchair. The staff was very helpful to make the room and shower as safe as possible. The view from our room was wonderful! Right on the beach. The food was very good for breakfast ! Dinner had a limited menu but good.

The room (already upgraded for me as Platinum member) does not fit with the hotel clasification of 6* and the requested rate per night (also considering my cash & points rate) - not cozy, only below standard compared with hiotels at Starwood I learnt during my lot of travels
In general: the room I had need some maintenance

Another fantastic experience with Gregory and his excellent staff (Jean Paul, Virginie and Raymond). The personal attention to details that made our trip and stay spectacular. We have been staying at this location since it was taken over by Le Meridien and each year it keeps getting better!

During my check in the employee was eating wrigleys and felt extremly cool.... The check out lady had no interest at all to ask how the stay was and would welcome the guest again. I have never seen such a bad service in a hotel with that attitude before. Never ever again!

Wonderful two day stay in a very good hotel. The room was spectacular with a wide sea view. Excellent service and a helpful staff, even to the point of advising that it would be cheaper to park across the road in a parking station. Good facilities, great pool and beach.

I stayed here one night while touring Monaco. Well-maintained property on a lovely beach. The staff recognized my SPG status and upgraded me to the SPG floor with a terrace overlooking the sea - much appreciated! I would definitely return!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AtomicGalaxi Great way to kick off 2013
We came to Monte Carlo to kick off 2013 in style, and the hotel didn't disappoint us. We received a greeting card and a box of delicious chocolates for New Year's Eve. That was such a nice touch.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. As Starwood Gold Member, we were upgraded to a room on the top floor. The room was spacious and quiet. We also received complimentary Internet service. The gentleman at the concierge was extremely helpful - he helped us to make a reservation at a great restaurant for New Year's Eve dinner, to find a list of cooking classes in Provence.
The gym was small but nice. I found the temperature being a little too warm for doing serious cardio workout. The indoor swimming was beautiful.
The room feature that I didn't like was the shower being quite small in a rather spacious bathroom. The checkout was very slow, taking about 5 minutes for each guest to check out. Our bill was initially wrong, but corrected after we contested some charges. We noticed that several guests in the checkout line had the same experience.

The hotel is a good position,modern but not too much elegant like others in Monte Carlo. The service is very good (check in ,room service) and the price of the room is reasonable. Often it's possible to find some intersting offer.
