Best thing about resort.
Where to start?? - Location, it really is ideal and the rooms are of an excellent standard.
Best attractions or restaurants nearby.
The musee oceanographique really is a great trip out, and Virage (restaurant) offers fantastic food and a great atmosphere. For lunch or a drink would by far recommend Cafe De Paris, the perfect people watching stop.
We came out to Monaco at the end of March and knew it was going to be an amazing trip but this was really solidified after the helicopter transfer into Monte Carlo - an experience beyond amazing, something I highly suggest everyone does! After arriving and checking into the hotel, a few hiccups with the room were dealt with by the friendly and professional reception staff who were more than helpful when it came to suggesting where to go, things to see and do and where to eat. The rooms are extremely spacious with modern fittings and furnishings. The bathroom was exceptionally large, equipped with a walk-in shower and jacuzzi bath. We were located on the 4th floor, and I would say 4 or 5 are really the levels you want, we had amazing uninterrupted views out across Port Hercule, lower levels may have some trees blocking the view partially. Breakfast was included in our rate and gave us a really good choice every morning from a buffet style selection of fruit, cereal, pastries and cooked eggs/sausages etc.
The location of the Port Palace really is ideal, you can walk to almost everything you would want to explore, with access out of the top of the hotel and the main entrance alleviating some of the hill walking! The casino is within easy reach with high end boutique shops surrounding it and Cafe De Paris. You're on the marina overlooking the luxury yachts with an easy flat walk around the harbour offering access to more shops and restaurants leading around to the Palace and older parts of Monaco on the opposite side of the harbour on "the rock".
Overall I would caution that this is by no means a cheap get-away, you will need your credit card! It is fantastic however and the Port Palace really does offer you an amazing base to explore this superb yet surreal principality.
