Travel Blogs from Monte-Carlo
Ok, for those of you who don't know...Nice and Eze are two cities, not nice and easy. This morning, since I didn't have my bag, our plan was to go to Nice and get clothes for me, go to the old town of Nice to the markets and then go to Eze which is a mid-evil town about 25 min ride outside of monte carlo on top of a small mountain. Low and behold …
Left this morning Genora where Christopher Columbus was born, stopping in Pisa...Amazing Leaning Tower...lots of pics. Left Italy Travelling thru over 170 Tunnels thr the mountains. We're going to Monte Carlo tomorrow night for dinner...passed it today with all the yatchs in the Harbour

Weather has been great since ...
... bloodline in these parts! ha The group glammed up tonight and headed out for a casino night in Monaco! We cruised past a bunch of private functions and entered the main casino - was VERY small and looked rather exclusive... stomachs were grumbling so hit up the finest joint in that small country - McDonald's!! (I'm not joking) Some of the group spent their Euros on truffle risottos, others on gourmet pizza or ...
... a prosciutto baguette for lunch with gelato chaser, saw the palace and wandered around the cathedral. Finishing the afternoon by pressing our noses to the glass viewing the worlds fastest car, a Bugatti Veyron - Chris reckons that'll be the only time we see one! We also got talking to an Aussie from Colloroy on the way to board his cruise ship and he kindly gave us a €25 Casino chip. So one thing led to another after ...
... far. It was impressive the way MIchelle changed out of her sweaty shorts and into a nice dress once we arrived - she fooled all the locals; even the guard at casino Monte Carlo thought she was in line for the performance (he had no idea she just biked 20km to get there). And in terms of costs, Monaco was worth every Euro - including the free beach (arguably better than in Nice, but debatable) and excellent food at a reasonable ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort
We stayed here June 2006. It is newly opened we were told in October 2005. Very clean, friendly, beautiful views. Lagoon pool & indoor/outdoor pool both a wonderful place to relax for the day. Appeared that some of the waitstaff was new, but they definately tried their hardest to please. Concierge was not helpful, any questions we asked of 'her' she didn't know the answer. We had a corner sea-view room (Rm 602) which overlooks the bay & also the pool terrace area & open sea. Absolutely fabulous room. Would definately recommend this & stay again.
Orginally booked to stay in this hotel on opening night. The opening was delayed so they put us up in the Hermitage. The hotel opened on our last night in Monaco. We went down to see it within 2 hours of opening. Our first impression was a good one.
" An absolute Gem"
Just back from a 2 night stay at the Monte Carlo Bay and it was simply fantastic. This is more like a five star with room facilities including bath robes and slippers etc. The surroundings are really luxurious, the food was great and the pool / sun lounge area is just superb. Friendly staff and excellent service make this, one I will certainly return to again. This is not a cheap option but then again it is in prime location in Monte Carlo, so wouldn't expect anything else....Enjoy!
Visited this hotel the night afetr it officially opened (7th October 05)
We spent two nights in this hotel in february 2006. We were very disappointed by this hotel.
I agree totally with the comments made by the previous poster.
I should begin by saying that the Monte-Carlo Bay Resort is beautiful. If you are looking for old world, ornate or traditional, I would recommend that you avoid this hotel. However, if you enjoy stylish, hip, modern hotels (e.g. W Hotels, Tablet Hotels) then this is for you.
Fantastic; One of its kind; Highly Recommended!!!
Wow, this hotel is fantastic and wonderful. Room was great with a balcony overlooking the sea. Big plasma TV, comfortable bed, beautiful decor! The bathroom was nice as well, but if using the shower, there's a bit of flooding - which you will need to put a towel there first. Had dinner at Blue Bay restaurant; service was impeccable, with good recommendations. It's a short distance from the main shopping and eatery area, but in the daytime, the hotel provides regular shuttle services, and public bus is also convenient. Pool and garden is awesome. Great design. Highly recommended to all. Was a bit disappointed that the spa was not open yet but I was there in the opening month......
The Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and Resort is gorgeous. We upgraded to a room with a fantastic ocean view. Our room was spacious and quiet. My wife said she was never going to leave the room. It had a large comfortable balcony. The room included a 42-inch plasma TV which doubled as a computer screen however the internet charge was €24 for 24 hours. The shower seemed to have a design problem which causes the bathroom to flood. I learned to set up a dam with towels before entering the shower. The sliding door to the balcony is unique in that it first comes a couple of inches into the room and then slides open. We had a nice dinner at the hotel's elegant Bay Blue restaurant.
Was fortunate enough to be in Monaco for business just as the new Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and Resort was opening its doors. The first hotel built by the incredible Societe des Bains de Mer in more than 75 years, this is a completely different experience from their famous Hotel de Paris (5 stars) or Hotel Hermitage (4 stars). MC Bay is a four star hotel laid out like many luxurious resorts we are used to in the United States, lush garden walkways, enormous sand bottomed lagoon, inside/outside swimming pool, jacuzzis everywhere, and a spa with services to die for. The usual high-end fitness centre is there, along with stunningly designed conference rooms with all the bells and whistles any corporate meeting needs. This is the only hotel of its kind along the Riviera, Italian or French, and its just plain beautiful.
