We go to Vegas every Sept and have for years. In 2011 we chose the Monte Carlo and actually it was a great hotel over all. We had a nice room, I asked for thinner pillows and they were delivered immediately and were perfect for me. The hotel gave good service and we had no complaints until we went to the pool. They have way too many rules at the pool. You can't take the water bottles from the casino into the pool area even if they are still sealed! That's just rediculous! Then they would not let us move our lounge chairs at all - not even a foot! We were trying to get away from the very loud music - I am not a prude but there should be a happy medium for the level of music at the pool. My chair was vibrating from the base in the music!!
When we checked out & were asked about our stay we told them it was great except for the pool issues - they were nice enough to comp our pool drinks at least which we did not expect. We would go back to the Monte Carlo in a heartbeat if they easied up on the pool rules. The pool is a big part of our stay in Vegas so it has to be good.More
