Currently enjoying my family holiday at the St Regis but I have a couple of grumbles... 1. There are lots of noisy kids in and around the main pool. Shouldn't their parents be encouraged to take them to the family pool? 2. There seems to be a major event taking over much of the hotel grounds this weekend. I feel... More

Took our family for a fabulous vacation. The property is gorgeous. The staff is attentive and incredibly service oriented. From the bell staff to the concierge, everyone was top notch. The view at sunset from the lobby bar deck is breath taking. Wonderful place to bring the entire family to dissapear and relax. Thanks for a wonderful week. Will be... More

Lovely place and great location. Highlight was Frank at the golf shop who made such a fantastic effort to make my teenage sons so incredibly welcome. Thank you Frank! Also: Pool staff were excellent. Very helpful - especially Nathan, who again could not do more. One gripe though: the buffet breakfast was substandard for a 5 star hotel so order... More

I just spent two nights at this resort with my husband and two kids ages 8 and 11. I was not expecting the resort to be as beautiful as it was. You can remain on the resort without leaving. This is a very child friendly property. The beach is beautiful, lots of restaurants, coffee shop, gym, spa, several pools and... More

Last Thursday, I decided to take my young son away for a "night at the beach" for that weekend. Kori Walker, St. Regis' Reservations Director, deserves special recognition for helping me book an incredible room. My son and I loved the pools, the beach, the restaurants and the warmth of the staff, not to mention the huge tub in the... More

A favorite of mine in the past I had noticed a slippage of service around the time the hotel was for sale. In a long talk with the manager he had said the new owners were going to be all over the service and WOW he was right. The remodel: It seems to be complete. The rooms are quite nice,... More

You will feel like a movie star here. The people pamper you and make you feel like the only guest. Everyone is extremely friendly on the staff. They have everything right on the property, you don't have to take your car out of the lot. It has a private beach and provide everything you need.

Everything about this hotel is lovely, except for one thing. First the good points--setting couldn't be lovelier. Staff is friendly--almost excessively so--I don't need to be validating their good service at every turn. Spa is great. Food is good. Rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. The shocker comes when the bill arrives--not the price so much as all the... More

This was my first stay at the St. Regis Monarch Beach. Had requested an early check-in, but when I got to the front desk, they said my room was not quite ready yet and took my number to call when it was ready. Was easy to leave bags with the bellmen and decided to go to the pool to wait... More
