The staff is very attentive and professional. Pool staff went above and beyond. Whitney Corte not only did her job very well, she was also training another girl. St. Regis also has the best Red Snappers on the planet. Ariel at the front deskmwent out of her way to be accommodating and put me in a beautiful room with a... More

This is definitely a favorite for us every summer, every few weeks. It is a perfect get-away from busy LA or even for bringing relatives from out of town. It is like a mini vacation and a true haven. The resort is massive in size and has a few restaurants to choose from so you don't even need to leave.... More

Stayed at the St. Regis Monarch Beach last weekend and it was grand! Lovely grounds and the shuttle to the beach was fun with a nice bistro on the sand to enjoy the sunset. Special thanks to Anthony who started out our stay so nicely and Devon at the Monarch Beach Club who answered all out questions and made up... More

Everything about this place is incredible. Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff are attentive and beyond courteous. The restaurants are great and again have fantastic staff. The cafe makes amazing specialty coffees and teas. The pool area is stunning, relaxing, and clean. The entire grounds of the hotel are stunning and meticulous. The spa....probably the best spa I've ever been... More

I do not have a single complaint about this hotel. From the moment my family arrived until the moment we left we were treated with the best hospitality. We have also stayed at the Ritz which is less than a mile away and all agreed we enjoyed our time at the St. Regis more. Highly recommend.

We had just left the Camelback Inn in Scottsdale Arizona (which was absolutely gorgeous) and stayed here at the St. Regis for 4 nights. Upon entering the resort it seemed very nice. The rooms were a good size- we enjoyed having a balcony with a view of the ocean. It was definitely a partial view. I wouldn't pay more for... More

Dear Joy W, I was very disappointed to read your comments with regard to the service issues your experienced and failure to meet your expectations. I would appreciate an opportunity to regain your confidence in our resort, ask that you contact me directly when your travel plans next bring you to Orange County. We take this feedback very seriously. Sincerely,... More

Bentley calls the Bentley Mulsanne “the grandest of grand tourers.” That is what I would call the St. Regis Monarch Beach, but I would add it is affordable luxury. My wife and her best friend went to a Yoga outing in Costa Rica for 10 days. I decided to take my 2 daughters, ages 8 and 13 and allow them... More

Stayed here with my wife.Everyone from front desk, maids, valet, golf course staff and food service in hotel always had a smile and "Hello"! Grounds immaculate. Restaurants and bars were good too. Reasonably priced compared to the Ritz. Will return soon with friends.

We have been to many other luxury hotels and resorts around the world and haven't had the wonderful pre-arrival treatment like we have received at the St. Regis. We had some reservation glitches but Noor, Dana and Shady have been wonderful in helping us figure things out. If the rest of the experience is half as good as our treatment... More
