Le Meridien Beach Plaza
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Monte-Carlo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 March 2013

I spent four nights at the Le Meriden as part of a business event that we were holding in their conference facility. The hotel itself was very nice and I was particularly impressed with the breakfast; high quality options, served in the pleasantly uncrowded, casual restaurant. Apparently dinner is an extremely expensive activity, and so we tended to walk to nearby restaurants rather than blow too severe a hole in our expenses budget...

My room (on the 9th floor) was a good size, with two double beds, a perfectly appropriate bath (all refreshingly clean and serviceable), a decent view from the full-length windows and a small but quite usable balcony. A nice LCD TV offered a good selection of TV from around the world; a separate desk enabled work, and the Wi-FI offered very good performance (although included in our rate I believe that it is normally chargeable).

I did like their idea of offering you the option of declining house-keeping; I don't change my towels and sheets every day at home, and I'm perfectly capable of making my own bed and hanging my own towels. And giving me a €5 voucher for each day that I declined made perfect sense. This also has the advantage of avoiding being disturbed by staff just when it's least convenient...

However, for some reason I wasn't able to get a good night's sleep; one night we had absolutely terrible weather and wind, slamming into my side of the building, rattling the sliding door and even jostling the balcony furniture, but that's hardly the hotel's fault. But the other nights I also had trouble getting a good sleep; the bed and pillows were comfortable enough, the A/C worked and wasn't noisy, there were no mysterious elevator or corridor noises... Not sure why...

So, all-in-all a very nice hotel; the staff were, on the whole, very courteous and polite. A couple of the bar people and one or two of the breakfast staff could have been a bit more efficient and friendly, respectively, but it's definitely not the worst experience that I've had in France; a country not exactly renown for the attitude of those working in hospitality...

So, stay with confidence, get the most out of the facilities, enjoy a hearty breakfast, but make plans for an dinner outside. I warmly recommend 'Cosmopolitan' and 17 rue du Portier, about 10 minutes very pleasant walk towards the centre of town.

The acid test (i.e. would I return): Yes, absolutely.

Room Tip: Apparently, the bar can be very noisy (and long-running) of a Saturday night, so perhaps try to avoi...

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Monte-Carlo !

Thank you very much for the comment you took the time to write on Trip Advisor.

We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and we appreciate very much all your comments.

About the service of some of the Bar and Breakfast staff members that you mentioned, it was analysed and discussed internally in order to avoid this impression in the future.

It is really pleasant to read that you enjoyed all the other aspects of you stay such as the breakfast and the room.
About our “make a green choice” action, we are indeed really concerned about the environment and we want to let our guests decide whether or not they want to contribute to our efforts.

Once again, thank you very much for your support and we hope to welcome you back in a near future.

Best Regards,

Great hotel with amazing service, before we could even get out of the taxi the concierge had our bags ready to take to our room. The front desk staff and restaurant staff were friendly and helpful.
The room was nice and quite a large room. The view of the private beach was great, only downfall was the construction work near the hotel, with saying this the noise from the construction could hardly be heard at all. Breakfast was great with a huge selection of food. We did find that the WiFi charge was a bit steep considering its free in most hotels these days. Overall this was a fantastic stay and a great way to end our holiday, Monaco is a must see and we would definately be returning.

Room Tip: definately upgrade to a sea view

I was travelling to the Le Meridien because of a Conference which took place there in February, when Monte Carlo is pretty quiet. I had the impression that the hotel also was in a kind of wintr-sleeping mode.
Check in was problem free, I recieved a room with a view to the side - at least not to the street and my first impression was positive. The room is quite large and equipped with good furniture. Also the bathroom was offering quite some space in order to feel comfortable. The room temperature was very hot, so I tried to cool it dowm. But no matter how I adjusted the temperature, the aircondition continued to blow warm air. I ended up sleeping with an open window and other people told me that they had the same problem. Besides this the room was fine, but this is a major issue.
The second issue was that only 2 of 4 elevators were in use, the other two "under renovation". Someone told me that he stayed there 2 monthes before and it was the same. The result: Long waiting times in front of the elevators and totally overcrowded lifts at peak times. I was late for my conference, because I had to wait more than 5 minutes for a lift. Certainly not acceptable for a 5 star Hotel.
These two issues lead to a downgrad of my judgement.
The breakfast was good and offered a broad choice, also compared to 5-star standard. We once had a meal in the restaurant, which was really good as well.
The conference area also did not provide any reason to complain.
Of course it wasm to cold to swim in the sea, but it must be mentioned that the Le Meridien is the only hotel in Monte Carlo that offers a private beach.

It is really tough to complain about anything in regards to this hotel. From the moment we entered, we were very pleased with the service, and that continued the entire stay. OUr View of the sea was breath taking, and the food was exceptional - especially the little tasty fruit and vegetable shots you can get with the breakfast.

The Pools were just gorgeous, and having the only private beach in Monte Carlo at your disposal...well enough said there.

Not a cheap place by any stretch of the immagination, but its Monte Carlo, so what are you going to do?

I will come back to this place - I think May our june would be just magic there.

Room Tip: Get the sea view. You are fac9ing west, and it is just breath taking!

I was here on business trip in February 2013. Rooms are nice, some furniture are new, some of them are a bit old but still classy. I got room with view of the ocean and pool. Personnel is very nice helpful. hotel has its own beach but unfortunately I could not use it :) Minuses are construction site at the left side of hotel and that 2 out of 4 elevators were out so waiting time was long.

I stayed here during business trip in february 2013.
Only downpoints I can mention are:
Construction site nearby the beach. In summer time it might be annoying.
Probably rooms need a little bit of renovation.
What was really positive for me is fitness facilities. While swimming pool is good for recreation only, you can not do real excercises there, it is around 15 m only, but gym is really good for the hotel. You can find there good range of weights, benches, good choice of training machines and a lot of cardio machines. So if you need some fitness during your vacation, this is the place. Food is ok, while 35 eur for lunch might be a little too much, but that is Monaco...
