Hotel Monterrey Roses by Pierre & Vacances
Ranked #18 of 37 Hotels in Roses
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 June 2013

We travelled by road from London to Roses. Stunning scenery over the Millau Bridge and into the top eastern corner of Spain just over the French Border. This hotel was chosen rather randomly as was the resort. Roses is catering for French, Belgium, Netherlands, German and Spanish and is very clean, calm and controlled. Roses is a little like an apartment campus for retired people and sporty tourists. Fabulous water sports and scenery with a strong local area towards the marina and mountains.The Hotel Monterrey is neat, tidy and ordered.The rooms are very clean and the Hotel has many varied seating areas, a good size bar, music in the evening and an average selection for breakfast. Our room on the fifth floor faced the beautiful bay at Roses overlooking the pool area with sun in the mornings, gone by 1pm. Receptionists were extremely helpful, bar staff efficient, breakfast staff all polite. Rooms are a good size with good quality wood fittings, beds lovely and comfortable. We don't like eating late so cancelled our half board basis, dinner 8pm onwards. The change was done with no fuss or delay. Although if you do like eating early you will have a problem here as it is very Spanish from a dietary perspective. They eat simply and after 8 pm. Excellent all round space, service, prices and position and outstanding cleanliness and service. We borrowed the hotel bikes and had a lovely day cycling very slowly along the long,flat, clean seafront. A wonderful front with the best waves ever, you would never need a jacuzzi here, and the sandy golden shore running for at least two kilometres round the bay is incredibly clean.Views all round are stunning. Windy some days but warm all week, some cloudy days but the fresh clean air made up for the clouds and they usually cleared by noon. Why drive to the North on wet, narrow roads when you can drive here on wide scenic, relaxed French motorways? Unless you like Vikings, Kilts and Haggis of course! The Spanish have done an excellent job selling their climate to all us greyed out Brits at what is now correctly comparible British prices. However you will be in the minority if you are British here in Roses.Well at least in June. As Londoners we are used to a multicultural variety of everything, especially food, you cannot expect that here. Try the excellent Belgium Beers at the Cafe Minigolf along the front, the service and setting is lovely. We came for the warmth, fresh coastal air, Thalassa sea therapy and a place we could reach by a scenic driving route. The diesel and toll costs a whopping €360 approx..but worth it, also we wanted to clear our polluted nasal passages from London's gunky air. It worked. Thanks to the Monterrey Hotel. A very quiet understated place to stay right on the seafront a nice distance from the centre - exceptionally good value.

Room Tip: Facing pool towards the East, sun in morning and fabulous views towards mountains and coast. Spanis...

Spent six nights here on a coach holiday. The hotel is spotless and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. The meals are served from a large buffet and there is a good selection of hot and cold dishes. Wine can be bought by the bottle and any unused from one meal is labelled and appears on the following evenings for your consumption. All the staff are very efficient and Thomas in the restaurant makes sure that everything is running smoothly.

The hotel was very busy, but coped with the numbers very efficiently. My room was very quiet and had a sunny balcony a reasonable view of the beach.

There are local shops across the road, and several others just round the adjacent corner. The bus stop is also to be found there, with an hourly service (line 1) to the centre of Roses. The cost is less than 2 Euros.

I would be very happy to stay at this hotel again.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights over the Easter weekend. The hotel was quite busy even this early in the season. We booked bed and breakfast, breakfast was ok but not the best I've had. The reception staff were friendly enough and everyone spoke good English. Even though we didn't have a sea view room we could still see the sea and the beach from our balcony. And eventhough there seemed to be a lot of guests at breakfast it was quiet in the room and on the balcony. Would recommend as somewhere cheap to stay as a base, the pool was very small but I'm pretty sure we were the only ones who went in it all weekend, it was absolutely freezing although it was the start of April and the weather wasn't great so not holding that against them! The pool was clean and the area aound had plenty of sunbeds I imagine it would get pretty crowded in the summer though.

We have been going to this Hotel for 5 years, it is a small, child friendly hotel which has a beautiful location on the promenade. The children can go from the pool to the beach without us having to worry because there are no car allowed on the promenade and from the hotel pool to the beach is only about 15m.

The hotel serves good buffets with a lot of variety.

Only disadvantage is that there is no airconditioning in the rooms but that's about the only disadvantage I can think of.

Room Tip: ask for seaview rooms as from the 4th floor or poolside rooms which also give a nice seaview and a b...

This hotel ihas 13 Steps to reception from the front or back of the hotel. The dining room has the same number of steps in and out . The main part of the reception etc. is on the first floor and there is no lift until you reach there. All luggage has to be carried up these steps and down again on departure. Food is clean but not a lot of selection , same choices every day. Meat not cooked very well. Evening meals not till 8.00pm so quite a long time between breakfast and evening meal. Plenty good restaurants close by. Good shopping area nearby an hourly bus to main town. Roses not very good, has seen better days.
