the best of ways things can happen unexpectedly in the French Riviera. A last minute invite by a friend to go meet with
other friends at Port Hercule in Monaco for a couple of drinks…turns into a
And this adventure just happened to start on the last day of the Monaco Yacht Show. On arrival the atmosphere was one of laid-back sophistication and celebration, most likely in part to the beautiful people and surroundings. Feeling no need to rush, a couple of drinks turned into one big party of meeting more and more new faces and stopping by nightclub after nightclub to take in all the festivities.
Naturally it got to that time of night (or morning) when we needed a place to crash, we did not want to put friends out by staying at their places in Monaco and since we didn’t previously book a hotel room for the night, we took a chance, jumped into a taxi and two minutes later we were at Le Méridien Beach Plaza Hotel in Monte-Carlo.

bathroom in our room was spacious and luxurious in every way. There was an abundance of towels, shampoo and
other bathroom supplies necessary and it was extremely clean. I know we must’ve looked a bit haggard since it was the middle of the night but you couldn’t tell or could easily fix whatever was happening as

I must admit, after spending the rest of the evening discovering some of that hidden man to man magic, (with the help of Grindr) in Monte-Carlo, it was nice to come back to our hotel room again and crash, even if it was only for a few hours before continuing with our stay. The bed felt deep and lush, the room service we had in the morning was top notch and the food was abundant.
|Although the restaurants and fitness area of the hotel looked tempting and busy, we never got the chance to experience everything Le Méridien Beach Plaza has to offer but I know I will definitely be back again.|
I highly recommend Le Méridien Beach Plaza, the hotel always seems to have the best deals available and even with our much unplanned schedule, we had a very enjoyable and at ease stay.
