We stayed a week in a one bedroom over Thanksgiving. I think it is well worth it to upgrade to the 2 bedroom unit, which we are doing for our 4th of July trip here. No problems at all with staff and the cleaning crew was helpful too. Cute little store where my wife got some good deals on casual clothing. It is right on Las Vegas Boulevard so we were minutes from Town Square and the downtown strip. Turned out to be an even better location than we anticipated. All in all, we were happy and look forward to our return this summer.

We stayed here in July 2007 and had a very enjoyable time. The resort was a bit noisy with large families, but the staff was courteous and agreeable at all times. The units are a bit small, but its Las Vegas - who's sitting in their room? We found the shuttle service an absolute god send - never took the car down to the strip.....thanks for a great stay. Guess we lucked out cause we never heard construction noise - even though parking was a bit tight at times....overall a great and memorable vacation.

First let me start by saying that Cancun is a great place to stay, the rooms are very clean the service is wonderful. I have no clue what the previous three people are even remotely talking about. Depending upon where you want to go on the strip it is about 2 miles away with many Casinos between the strip and the resort.

We just returned from a 4-night stay after a week in Scottsdale for Giants Spring Training (stayed in Sheraton Desert Oasis, where a friend owns - it was very, very nice.)
Even though we've owned Monarch Grand for about 8 years, this is the first time we've stayed in any of their properties. We've always traded for something better, but this time we wanted to see what this place was like and didn't want to spend any $$$ so we booked.
The staff at check in were ok, if not effusive in their greeting. It was about 6:00 pm on a Weds. evening. Things were very quiet in the lobby.
We were given a 4th floor 1 bedroom in the "Tulum" bldg aka bldg 5. It was a corner spot overlooking the pool and grounds - not bad.
The garage is not very big so if you get a spot in there when everyone is out at dinner, hang on to it! Parking outside gets pretty full and your car will have dust all over it from the construction next door.
The interior decor in this bldg is attractive but even though it is very new, it is already showing signs of being battered by either guests or housekeeping - big scratches and gouges and stains on dining chairs. The bed was pretty good but interestingly, the sheets looked and felt ancient - you know, that very thin, slippery feel... clean though.
On the whole, the place was ok. Good soundproofing and the double-pane windows keep all noise out. Air conditioning works well. Very small basic kitchen - one thing irritates me - they provide one pkg of coffee that's in a filter bag but don't provide any filters so if you want to make more coffee you have to go buy filters unless you though to bring some with you.... a real pain in the fanny.
The strip is about 4 or so miles away which in Las Vegas is a very long way. We tried taking the free shuttle they provide down to Mandalay Bay for dinner. The trip down was fine but the trip home at almost midnight was a pure nightmare! The driver didn't seem to know that there is construction at night on 15 North which is the route they use to get to Downtown/Fremont Street. She was supposed to pick people up there so we and the 3 young guys who got in at Manadalay Bay were her captives for the next hour while she tried to make her way thru the traffic on the freeway. We suggested that she take the Sahara offramp but she didn't know how to get to Fremont St. from there - even though it's only a few blocks!!! So we were stuck in the van for over an hour. Plus she had the heat on and I felt like we were breathing pure carbon monoxide fumes. We finally asked her for some air and she turned off the heat but it was awful. I know, it's free - but this was ridiculous. The people who she was supposed to be picking up at Fremont St. apparently gave up and took a cab so it was all wasted time...
We noticed that things don't seem to get cleaned as well as they should be in the common areas - carpet on elevator floors looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in ages. Even though the bldg is quite new, it's starting to looked tattered around the edges. The security door in from the garage looks like someone tried to jimmy it...
The last day we were there the weather was better so they opened the main pool. There must have been 100 kids in it! There were pretty much no chaises available so we sat at a table outside the "lounge". This resort is definitely the domain of large families so if you don't like to be around lots of kids and roudy young adults, this isn't the place for you....
Bottom line: I don't think we'd stay here agian.

We stayed here with another couple the end of November beginning of December '06.
Due to flight delays we did not arrive until very late Sunday night or rather early Monday morning (2am). The front lobby was impressive and staff greeting us were nice, so we anxiously looked forward to a nice stay.
When we got to our suite, we were disappointed to say the least. The place is so small! The dining table and chairs take up all the room in the dining room (God help anyone who is of a larger size or has any mobility problems!). The kitchen is so small that only one person can enter at a time, there is no cupboard space and the cutlery remains in a container on top of the stove!! The bedrooms are really small, the master bedroom is somewhat okay, however the second bedroom is something else. The queen bed takes up almost all the space in the room leaving only about a foot and a half between the foot of the bed and the wall, the TV is at the side of the bed making it hard to watch and when you open the double closet doors, almost one half of the closet is a wall!!!!
Upon getting to bed after a very long travel day/evening, we were awakened by the construction across the street around 5:30 - 6am. This was a normal morning call every day!!
The place was not clean, there were hairballs on the floor, the rugs needed vacuuming and we even found the tip from a ladies high heel under the table, however I will give the resort credit for cleaning as soon as we reported this to them.
The wireless internet is costly and the bandwidth was so poor that you cannot use VOIP. My husband needed to do some business and could not get the service to work fast enough to send information! $40/week is too much for such poor service and the front desk didn't seem to care when we expressed our concerns because as far as they were concerned we had the service who cares if you can't use it!!!
The resort is a long way from the strip however since we had a vehicle we really didn't care. We tried the restaurant for breakfast one morning and it was a disappointing experience. You are better off going to the food court at the outlet mall, you will get the same food for half the price!!
We stayed here because it was a last minute exchange through II so for the price I guess it was okay, however I would never pay the price that is being asked on Redweek, as you can get much nicer, roomier and more convenient places for the same price or less.
To say the least, this was a real disappointment to us and our friends who had exchanged their timeshare for this place and had done so based on the reviews that they had seen. I must agree with one of the previous reviews, that those people who are saying this is a wonderful place must be trying to sell the place or else stayed in the penthouse suites!
Stay someplace else if you can, this place leaves a lot to be desired!
