The staff at the St Regis made for a memorable trip. Right from the start, Sam at valet made us feel welcome, check in was easy and friendly. We dined at the Monarch Bay Club were the food was superb, our server Kerstin was knowledgeable and took good care of us. The manager, Dan made sure everything was perfect for... More

This is a 5 star resort with well appointed rooms and sumptuous grounds and public rooms. My favorite part of the resort is the private Bay Club with a restaurant and bar on the sand in a cove with tide pools. A free tram takes you down there every 15 minutes. There's lounge chairs and umbrellas as well as oversized... More

We had a wonderful gourmet dinner at the Monarch Beach Club recently. The staff was excellent, and the food was exquisite. The setting is beautiful- right on the beach. And of course we enjoyed dinner with a group of friends while the sun was setting. An intimate and lovely experience at the beach club, which is linked with the St.... More

Pro's: This St. Regis definitely has the best location, beauty and optimally positioned resort on Monarch Bay. The room was pristine, large and beautiful. Grounds and private beach club also a delight. Drivers to the beach in their covered mega golf carts were all great conversationalists and thoughtful. Cons: Pool staff needed a bit more training. We stayed over Valentine's... More

My husband, three children under 10, my great aunt-in-law, and I all stayed at the St. Regis during the holidays in December 2014. The service there was excellent and our stay was exceptional. We called ahead to make sure that my great aunt (who had suffered from a stroke a couple of years ago) could be accommodated, and I have... More

A few things to consider 1) great service from the moment you arrive until you leave 2) the food in the fine dining restaurant is exceptional and if you can sit on the balcony the views at sunset are breathtaking 3) the restaurant down by the beach is very good with excellent service, but walking is nearly impossible so you...

The St. Regis is an extremely elegant hotel, with an eye for detail and attentive staff. From the drive up to the lobby through to the views from the outside dining venues and private beach, this was well worth the trip.

The St. Regis Monarch beach is a beautiful hotel, but my stay had some issues. I checked in Febuary 15th at 1pm. The lady at check in was very nice. She was able to get us early check in and late check out. She offered me an upgrade to a resort view guestroom instead of the garden view. The resort... More

I have stayed here many times throughout the years and decided to come here to celebrate my birthday today with friends and family. Unfortunately today's service has been a let-down. There were lines at the check-in and a rude front check-in experience. NOT what I have expected from this property, the St. Regis brand or how anyone wants to be... More

The St. Regis is a splendid resort to stay at. My girlfriend and I spent the Valentines Day weekend here. The staff were all very courteous and went out of their way to make our stay perfect. We had a king bed room overlooking the golf course, and it was awesome. It had more than enough room for 2 of... More
