As we mentioned yesterday in our review of the Monte Carlo Bay Resort, the place to be when staying at the hotel is poolside.
That's because the hotel's pool area includes a sandy-bottomed "lagoon", an indoor swimming pool (that connects to the outdoor one), a childrens pool, and several jacuzzis placed throughout.
And while you're busy walking on sand, the mesmerizing Mediterranean is always just over your shoulder. You may even be able to spot

We've already spouted our love for the rooms' plug panels but now allow us to take you all the way inside.
Things may be quiet on the South of France right now, not to mention a little chilly but if you're keen to get planning on your summer vacay, allow us to take you inside the ritzy Hermitage Hotel in Monte Carlo.
The hotel has a magnificent location in Square Beaumarchais with killer views of the Mediterranean and the Monte Carlo marina (Hello, Yacht-spotting!) It's also steps away (or a Lamborghini joyride) from the famed Monte Carlo Casino, luxury designer stores and countless watch shops (there's even a Prada store within the hotel.)
But is it worth your sugar daddy's money? Let's go inside....
After we downed some tea with Katy Perry at The Claridge's in London the other month, we headed up to check out the Diane Von Furstenberg Suite and we were delighted to see this in the lift--not only an attendant but a sofa! Naturally, we thought it was cute and unique so we snapped a photo and Twittered about it.
But later on in our travels to Monte Carlo, we spied little benches in the lifts at both the Hermitage Hotel and the Monte Carlo Bay Resort, leading us to believe maybe it's more of a European thing. Although, the three other hotels we popped into in London did not have them, nor did our hotel in Paris.
Nevertheless, little benches in the lifts will not make or break a hotel stay (are you that lazy you need to sit down for an elevator ride?) but you know how fond we are of those little touches found in hotels.

You know how much we love our plug panels here at HotelChatter so imagine our excitement when we checked into the Monte Carlo Bay Resort in Monaco and saw this on the wall underneath the TV--a plug panel that all languages can understand! (Most of the resort signs are in French, Italian and English.)
We also loved the generously-sized flat-screen TV that hung on the wall opposite the bed. After staying in four different hotels in Europe before this one, we were starting to think that Euros did not like big flat-screen TVs. But the Monte Carlo Bay Resort had this one all turned on with a personalized greeting too.
Room rates at the hotel, which is part of the Societe des Bains Mers, start around 500 Euros a night for a city view room. We actually booked ours through Kiwi Collection for 319 Euros a night which included a great breakfast spread every day. (We may have eaten three croissants one day. Don't judge.)
