My experience at this resort was disappointing. I made my reservation for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, checking out Monday morning. Because I've owned with Pacific Monarch for so long (seven years), it's under my maiden name. I never used it because there's never availability and the reason we went to Riviera Beach was because my husband, step-son and I really... More

This resort was recommended by my cousin who has been here several times. Well over a month in advance I made our reservation, with the request of the highest floor ocean view. I prepaid my room non refundable. RA week before I personally called and left my reservation # name and phone number with my request again. Upon arrival, the... More

We are owners in the timeshare that recently purchased this property. We like the beach communities that line the So.Cal. coast so when we saw this property we thought it was worth a try. Our title says it all; a great location but it is isolated from the beach because of the RR TRACKS and a very busy highway. The... More

The travel website that I used to find the property did not describe it well, so I went to the resort's website, which was even worse! They have 2 BR, 2BA units with a kitchen area that has everything but an oven, including full size frig and a dining room table. Great space for the family. Comments from travelers talked... More

My week stay was painstaking....room keys kept on needing replacements, only cleaned our room once that week even that did not go as promised. Our garage and entrance was hundreds of feet away from the main lobby where you needed to obtain any rentals and seek HELP!!!. Shower faucet was not labeled and had very hot water and would not...

Upon arrival we found it difficult to park for registration and check in. You can park on the Pacific Coast Highway or take your chances parking under the building (not clear what you should do). Make sure you park under the right building or you will have to move your car. After registering we met with the concierge and were... More

Having read these reviews in advance we were prepared for a bad time but actually made the most of our stay though it's unlikely we would ever come here again. Convenient to a (long walk) to Dana point beaches (Doheny Park) or drive to nice restaurant town of San Clemente, this place is basically in the middle of nowhere except... More
