We spent 5 days here and had a fantastic time. First time at a St Regis, and didn't know what to expect. From the car valet, to the concierge, from the wait staff at the restaurants to the pool attendants - every staff member bent over backwards to ensure our needs were met. Our room was upgraded upon check in,... More

Hi All - We enjoyed our recent stay at St. Regis Monarch Beach. Ms. Jessica Bendiel our waitress was most helpful and made for a most delightful dining experience. We especially enjoyed the beach experience,since we are from Colorado where beaches are scarce. Happy Traveling.

I was here for a work conference which was delightful. Staff were great from check in to the porter. Rooms were as shown in photos. The hotel is not on the beach so you take a cart to the beach - which was very cute - like disneyland! The service at the beach was great, with the staff setting up... More

This is my 5th stay at this hotel during the past 3 years. The staff all have 5 star attitudes but they are overwhelmed. It took me 30 minutes to check in. No big deal but a slight set back at the start of a weekend getaway. The cart shuttle to the beach is a disaster. It took 20 minutes... More

We have been guests of the St Regis Monarch Beach since 2008 and we have always had exceptional service. We have traveled the world and stayed at many different hotels. The St. Regis Monarch is in our "Top 5" most beautiful properties. We've always had a positive and relaxing experience. The GM, Johnny So, and his team are unique in... More

Ok, I get it. You've got money and you like to spend it. Awesome. However, I paid $40 for a club sandwich. Not even a good club sandwich. The hotel is beautiful, the pool is gorgeous. Great gym and a very nice spa, but I'm still not sure that it was worth the heavy price. That being said, if money... More

My family and I were scheduled for Hawaii which Iselle and Julio scrapped for us. After scrambling we were able to secure two third floor poolside rooms at the St. Regis. Normally, I love the Ritz and the Montage, and as a couple I still might be tempted by the Ritz ocean views. But with our four children, wow were... More

Just stayed here for two nights and three days with my wife and two daughters (13 & 10). Had read many reviews before we arrived and had mixed emotions. We arrived on a Wednesday around 1:00 pm, it was fairly busy. We were greeted by the valet (Brandon) and checking in moments. There were several people in line and immediately... More

Simply put, this is not a typical St. Regis. For the people who have traveled the world and have stayed at great hotels (and by that I mean excellent SERVICE), you would understand. It is ran by amateurs. We have stayed here a lot because we are Starwood members and get good rates. But before each visit, my husband and... More

It started with a long line at check-in. Think Vegas without the rope trick. It was extremely crowded and I think the staff struggled with the crowds. Waited 30 minutes for my bag and when it finally came I requested assistance with the remote. All I wanted was CBS. No such luck from the bell staff. Thought the common areas... More
