Avinguda de la Platja, 2, Roses, Catalonia, Spain
"We stayed at the Montecarlo Hotel for 1 night during the month of October. We had booked a double bed with the expectation of a three star hotel at the beach with excellent service. Entrance - The entrance of the hotel does give the impression that it requires some maintenance. The paintings even have holes (?) in them. Check-in - Opens from 14h00. When we checked-in, the receptionist gave us our keys to our room and it turned out our room did not look anything like the pictures (80's interior) and had 2 separate beds. When we moved back to the reception to inform her about this, she told us they were unfortunately fully booked and could provide no other options. We understood her point, but as we were on holiday and anticipated a double bed and proper amenities for the amount of money paid, we decided to cancel our booking. She was friendly and pleased to help us with this request, but after realizing the effort it took to process (being alone at the reception) she proposed an upgrade with a double bed and sea view. Tired, we took the room. Room - Allthough the room had a nice view, was clean and updated we did not anticipate the loud music from the hotel lounge below us. The music started at 20h00 went on till 0h30 midnight. Closing the window did not help.. The bed was a bit short (my height is 1.86 cm), but comfortable to lay on. Spa - The spa is accessible from 9h00 till 21h00. It is disconnected from the main hotel (you have to walk through the restaurant and go outside where people are eating and drinking) The pool was clean, although a bit small. Both sauna's smelled like mold and therefor we were unable to enjoy it. The following morning we had breakfast (open between 8h00-10h00). Though there is plenty of choice, the quality is lacking (stale bread, canned fruit and powdered coffee). Besides all of the above, we managed to make the best out of our stay. Based upon the above, we unfortunately cannot recommend the hotel. "
"I stayed in Montecarlo Hotel 3 times and was always happy with the room and service. The air conditioning working very well and quiet. The hotel is non smoking, but there were ash trays on the balconies. Decor is a bit classic but that is to be expected from a 3 *** hotel. There is a small swimming pool, sauna, and a hot bubble bath in a glass enclosure. Very good breakfast is included in the price of the room. The buffet style evening meal is good and varied. There is a live music evening in the restaurant downstairs until midnight. The staff is friendly and obliging. I literally cannot say anything negative about this hotel even if I wanted to. "
"Stayed here as part of the Newmarket Holidays 'little trains of the Pyrenees' holiday. Hotel seems to serve large groups of tourists from all countries, so the catering is rather basic and is on a self-service basis in huge restaurant. This can be overwhelming when a lot of tours come in all together. My room was at the side at the back of the hotel and I did not hear any of the music or traffic etc. It was clean and roomy. There was a 'side-on' view of Roses and the sea, which was fabulous. Reception staff did not seem to be comfortable in speaking English! However the location was great - right by the beach and promenade and near little touristy shops. The local bus stop to Roses is a few minutes away as is the Roses Express land train. The hotel is 'no frills' but I found it quite acceptable for a short stay. However, it is a dog friendly hotel and there were lots of them staying there!!!"
