My wife and I just stayed at the SRMB to celebrate my birthday and it was truly a day and night to remember! The resort has so much to offer and we definitely tried to enjoy as many activities and experience as we could. We laid out by the beautiful pool (a few too many kids for my taste but... More

This was our second time at the St Regis Monarch Beach, but the first time to go in the summer. Let me start by saying, I love kids, & I understand you must take them with you on vacation, but have something for them to do. The staff had things to do for smaller kids & they have a separate...

Nicole Macina is wonderful! We stay at the St. Regis a lot and we have had the pleasure of interacting her with a couple of times and she is phenomenal! She made our son's vacation and treated him like a king! She made him feel so important by letting him make his own hotel key and giving him the most... More

We're locals and enjoy visiting SRMB. The resort has 3 pools. A great workout pool, a resort pool, and the family lagoon pool. I love that my kid can have a great time at the pool without disturbing adults that are relaxing on the resort side. I do wish that the hotel would consider a separate jacuzzi for the families....

I somewhat jokingly refer to this place as the. ST. REGIS COMPOUND. It has lovely pools, excellent restaurants, a private beach and amazing golf course. I like the fact that there is a life guard on duty at the beach and you can have alcoholic beverages. The complementary chairs and umbrellas at both the beach and pool make it so... More

The hotel is nice, however, we were expecting a lot more. The hotel is beautiful and the beach is nice. What disappointed us was the staff and service level. There should be drink/food service on the beach, this level of a hotel you would expect more. They seem to employ a lot of young locals that are spoiled and seem... More

The service, from the beginning to end was impeccable. Also, the meals, for 300 people were impressive, as they always are at St Regis. The grounds were beautiful and you're basically in Paradise. The chai tea lattes at the coffee bar was on par with best coffee houses, the sundry store was perfectly stocked with all the necessary things, they... More

St Regis Monarch Beach is, by my estimation, occupied with 75% corporate guests who will likely not be paying their own bill. This must be how St Regis get a way with a level of service below that required of a 5* resort. 20 min wait at check-in; one restaurant closed, one fully booked and a 2 hour wait for... More

First of all, I would rate this property a 3.5. For beauty alone, and the nice rooms/bathrooms, I gave it a 4, but a 3.5 is more reasonable...here's why. Located in scenic Dana Point, the St. Regis has the makings of a five star property. Beautiful Mediterranean architecture, gorgeous views, lush grounds, luxuriously appointed rooms, and a golf course on... More
