The entire experience was bad. The staff seemed annoyed. The place was run down. The locals on the street were much friendlier than the staff members. The plus side was the music at night and there was a huge park nearby.

Monique's is located in the Maraval valley surrounded by Hills, we are not near a park or do not have a park in our area where parties are help. This clients must have gotten her location mixed up.

My family stayed here for a few weeks, we have family up the hill in maraval. I am writing this because I think some of the summaries have been a bit unfair. The accomodation is basic but spotlessly clean and very safe. The staff were lovely, very helpful and friendly. If you don't want to pay hilton or Hyatt prices...

My family and I stayed on June 7 until June 21. I must say WInnie and her staff were exceptional throughout our stay. The room was well maintained and clean. The only issue I had was the ballroom around the tub had mold but nothing to major. I did not bring it the staff attention. I do have commend the...

we spent a week staying at monique's during carnival and had a glorious time. The staff were friendly and helpful - whatever we asked for, they were happy to provide. The breakfasts were sublime, but you do need to let them know that you will be having breakfast or dinner in advance. It's worth it! Arnold the chef went to...

Good size rooms with comfortable beds and adequate furnishings(i.e.nothing fancy which you don't really need if all you need is a place to relax after a day of sightseeing). Housekeeping is good and the staff friendly/helpful. Parking lot is on side of a hill which requires parking sideways which can be a bit of a problem manoeuvring if there a...
