Top Tips from our Experts


Destination Manager

"From June to September, LUX* Saint Gilles is the prefect spot on the island to watch the whales coming from the Atlantic to the warmer waters. Between 17:00 and 18:00, head to the beach and gaze out over the lagoon to be amazed by this incredible sight."

Gourmet restaurant with chairs made for Jack Reacher.

Monte-Carlo, Monaco

At check-in at this 5 star establishment we were asked to fill in our details ourselves as the staff had better things to do apparently. The white buildings with shingles on the roofs give the place a colonial feeling, or maybe a New England feeling. Difficult to see where the five starts emanate from. Management laid on a drinks party in order to get to know guest. Good initiative. We pointed out the lack of running water in the bathroom, and nothing was done about it of course. The gourmet restaurant served a very tasteful amuse-bouche and had lots of cheerful waiters running around. Much warned of dress code was not followed as most male guests sported shorts and wife beaters. The chairs were very deep, low and uncomfortable and needed several cushions to provide a stable environment, even for Jack Reacher. Good French wine on the list, not only SA screw cork stuff. The main course of scampis was the worst example of a complete cooking mess. Totally un-eatable. No excuses made. How is it possible. Buy Fearnley's fish cooking book.
