... sandwiches we had bought in the morning. Not long after we had finished our modest repast the sun made an appearance and we were able to continue our tour sans parapluie. We made our way down to the water and accosted several other tourists for photos (some of which we've undoubtedly uploaded for your viewing pleasure). After a pleasant constitutional along the Mediterranean we decided it was time to come back to reality and leave this wonderland to the trust fund ...
... stores until I happened across a home furnishings shop that sold paint and other hardware-ish things, and fortunately the shop keeper spoke just a tiny amount of English. I explained rope, but she didn't understand until I made the motion of hanging oneself that she said "ah-ha, chord", then gave me directions to a shop called Four Seasons. This panned out to be the perfect hardware shop, where I actually found straps with ...
... time around. Great thinking because at each of the stops no-one was getting off because the queues were so long.
Very early on it was obvious that we wouldn't be seeing too many fords...... Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini were more the norm........ Even made the Mercedes and BMW's look ordinary. In fact their taxis are all Mercedes.
Preparation for the Grand Prix is well underway with the stands, scaffolding, barriers etc very evident which I think spoiled some of ...
... peppers, a variety of other fruits and veggies all covered in a light vingerette. It may not sound appealing but It ended up being pretty delicious and I was happy I tried it. After supper we just decided to call it a night and go back to he hostel. The long night of travel the night before and the time in the sun made us all pretty tired. We went back to the hostel and fell asleep anxious for another day in the beautiful south of France ...
So – it’s on the train from Avignon and off to Italy for a few days to the Cinque Terre. We knew we had a couple of train changes – Nice which was the end of the TGV, Ventimiglia which was the border and Genoa in order to get on the local line. Other than that we weren’t clear about the actual route the train would take. Well it turned out to be fabulous – down to Marseilles ...

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.
