Held annually on the magnificent French Riviera, Monte Carlo Rolex Masters is the first of three “Roland Garros series” outdoor clay tournaments and one of the favorite spots of top ATP players, such as Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, & Murray. The tournament takes place in the beautiful environment of Monte Carlo Country Club, which provides spectators with world-class tennis, as well as magnificent views of Mediterranean Sea. Many tennis fans also consider the Monte Carlo Masters an excellent predictor of who will do well at the French Open.

As a destination, Monte Carlo is amazing. After long hours of watching tennis, you may relax on the beach or by the pool, enjoy luxurious shopping of internationally well-known designer brands, experience high-end cuisine from world’s great chefs or have some fun at the casinos. No wonder so many top WTA & ATP players claim their residence in Monte Carlo!

Monte Carlo Rolex Masters Hotel Picks

Walk to the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters

There are some fantastic and gorgeous hotels all walking distance from the MCCC going from West (MCCC) to East (Monte Carlo City Center), in total about a 20 minute walk along the beach.

Monte-Carlo Beach (Relais & Châteaux) is a super high-end hotel located just next door to the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing vacation, private hotel beach, courteous and charming staff, 1st class service and exceptional cuisine, Monte-Carlo Beach is definitely your top pick. Unique, luxurious, elegant and a 1 minute walk to the tournament.

Monte Carlo Beach Hotel

Monte-Carlo Bay & Resort (0.2 mile) – Stay with the players! Situated on the Larvotto peninsula, and rated for the best value in Monte-Carlo, this property provides guests with 4 hectares of beautiful gardens and breathtaking sea views. The hotel is decked out in tennis decoration during the tournament and many of the players and their teams stay here. In addition, visitors are welcome to enjoy a hotel casino, spa, hot tubs, and a lagoon with a waterfall. The best thing about Monte-Carlo Bay & Resort is that it is about an 8 minute walk (0.2 mile) from the Monte-Carlo Country Club!

More Hotels along the beach: Le Meridian, Fairmont

Experience Monte Carlo City Centre

However, if you are interested in gambling, world class shopping, you may be better off staying in closer proximity to the City Centre, and enjoying one of hotels there.

  • Novotel Monte-Carlo – mid-class modern hotel, located only 260 yards from the train station.
  • Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo – experience a mix of classical and modern architecture while being just 700 yards from Monaco – Monte Carlo train station
  • Port Palace, a 4-star boutique hotel and a place of legendary Grand Prix circuit and the Monaco Yacht Show (only 5 minutes walking distance from Monaco train station), you will gain an easy access to the casinos, luxurious boutiques, bar lounges and night clubs!
  • Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo – If you want to go all out and splurge, you will find no better hotel anywhere than the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, which offers a free shuttle bus to the tournament. It’s also pretty easy to sneak onto this shuttle bus if you are staying at any of the other nearby hotels, as guests at the Hôtel de Paris and Hôtel Hermitage benefit from a free shuttle service to the Monte-Carlo Beach Club, free access to the club, deck chairs, floats, parasols (subject to availability), changing rooms and towels.

Apartment Rentals in Monte Carlo

We found some great and very affordable apartments right in the heart of Monte Carlo, either a 20 minute walk to the tournament or a train ride away. We also found one apartment you should definitely NOT rent!

  • Lovely Monte-Carlo Apartment – well decorated and very comfortable.
  • Monaco Grimaldi Forum Apartment – pet-friendly, non-smoking with a garden, wardrobe, heating, flat-screen TV, kitchen with a fridge and a stove, private bathroom with a shower and a hairdryer.
  • https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/23620333 – Do NOT rent this apartment! It was a terrible stay and the owner is a nuts, coming over during our last night at 9pm trying to kick us out because we needed the key to exit the apartment the next morning. Seriously, don’t ask, just don’t book it.

Insider Tip: If walking along the beach to or from the tournament, be sure to stop by Miami Plage Restaurant on the beach with a view of the ocean. It was our favorite meal while there and was a perfect place to unwind after the finals at around 5pm. Want to support Djokovic? Have a meal at his healthy and organic restaurant, Eqvita.

Getting to the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters

Considering the traffic, it is highly recommended to arrive at the Monte Carlo Country Club by train. Get off at “Monte-Carlo Country Club” station between Monaco and Roquebrune Cap Martin, located approximately 600 meters from the site. You may also utilize buses 1, 4, & 6 if needed, which will take you from the station to Monte Carlo Country Club (free of charge upon presentation of a tennis ticket to driver). Also, there will be free shuttle buses along the sea edge from Portier roundabout to the avenue Princesse Grace. However, the easiest and the fastest way to get to the Monte Carlo Country Club from your hotel is to stay at one within walking distance.
