“Quiet room request not respected”
Reviewed 30 March 2011

As we hadn't been able to book ahead on line we paid over the (internet) odds for a side room but requested nevertheless a quiet room. We were given a room amidst a party of French cyclists, so listened to them noisily carrying bikes to their rooms wearing cycling shoes. After also listening to a dog constantly yapping in a nearby room we requested another room and mentioned the dog noise. The receptionist was not interested and pointed out that the hotel does allow animals in rooms. She did however allocate another room for us on the 6th floor which was very quiet - shame she hadn't done this in the first place.
The breakfast was OK and had we had time, I would have used the indoor pool.

Reviewed 30 July 2010

Had a one night stay in the Montecarlo - and that was enough. Despite saying there was parking available this was not the case. We were forced to park a number of streets away and bring things to the hotel in separate bags rather than lugging our cases.

There is no air-con in the hotel and the room we were allocated was stuffy and backed out onto vents from the kitchen - not a very appealing view. We also had to endure a French couple arguing from midnight to 5am all of which could clearly be heard through the wall. I also had to ask for shower gel and was given 1 sachet!!

The pool is a bit of a joke there is room for about 4 people and it has a conservatory type structure built round it - I'm sure its ok in the autumn/winter but not in summer.

The best thing about the hotel is it is situated on the beach.

Be aware too that it is not in the centre of Roses but in a suburb.

There is a good restaurant located to the right of the hotel which I would recommend.
Basically disappointed in this hotel - I wouldn't go back.

Stayed in this hotel, in a superior room with a great view over the beach. The rooms are spacious and clean. The choice for breakfast is amazing from fresh fruit and pastries, cold meats, cheese, every variety of breads to hot dishes, with bacon and eggs.
Evening entertainment consisted of a live band and they also had childrens entertainment during the day. Free parking outside the hotel and plenty of bars and restaurants to try out in the locality. Would recommend a boat trip up to coast to Cadaques which is a a quaint little town. Fabulous scenery en route.
The beach are also has jet skis, and speed boats which can be hired out. Its great to be in a spanish resort which doesnt consist of " full english breakfast and sunday roast"
Good Tapas and paella thats what you go to Spain for.

We stayed in the Superior rooms which were on the front of the hotel
The Santa Margarita beach is fantastic and the hotel has a superb position on it
Our room was at the front of the hotel and had a great view and a nice balcony to sit on
There are a number of decent resturants locally
Breakfast was good including hot eggs and bacon, and a large buffet, fresh and well stocked
Parking outside the hotel is free, easy and plenty of it

It was very hot at night and as the room had NO AIR CON, we had to open the window, but the beach area is noisy

This converted a very pleasant stay into an uncomfortable couple of days
I suggest going there out of season

Great hotel, right on the beach, near to lots of restaurants. Roses is a bit seaside and not much else, but we were meeting friends nearby, so this was a good place to stay. We had no trouble parking our car directly outside the hotel.

This hotel is in a great location - right on the seafront with direct access to a very attractive beach. The covered pool is a bit too public for our liking and the lounges are not large enough for the number of people the hotel can accommodate. We stayed late May and it was full to the seams. We had a superior room which was exactly that. "L" shaped corner balcony on the 5th floor, with privacy and great sea views, simply lovely for a pre dinner drink in the evening. But the restaurant is unspeakable. A rabble descends to queue outside before the doors are opened and then its a seething mass of people raiding the buffet. Tables are squeezed together so tightly I wonder they don't try to double deck! And the food quality is v down market. OK if you enjoyed eating in your school canteen in the 1960's. So by all means select the hotel, but eat there at your peril. There are plenty of eating "places" around and a few restaurants too.
