4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

If I could do 4.5 stars I probably would have. Excellent service, rooms are recently updated and have everything you could really need, service was great. I actually thought the pool was great though they will be updating that and all the grounds beginning in November for a major facelift. Views, even oceanviews aren't all that as they are across...

My fiance attended a company meeting at the St. Regis and I was lucky enough to attend and enjoy some rest and relaxation at the pool and beach. The Hotel is on a beautiful property and is nicely manicured. We enjoyed one day at the adult pool and the second day at the beach. The staff were so friendly and... More

We just spent a few days at the St Regis Monarch Bay outside of Laguna Beach and the resort was nothing short of fantastic. The hotel and its staff have created a enclave that's much like a pocket in time. From the second we entered the grounds we were whisked into a time that was more genteel where people behaved...

I recently stayed for 6 days with my fiancee. This property was beatiful, elegant and very luxurious,which is expected from any st regis. But the hotel staff made our trip unforgettable. They all were very attentive, proffessional and courteous. Id like to thank Haidi at the motif restaurant, the bartender at the restaurant by the pool, Mark from the phillipines,... More

The entire place was stunning. The grounds were beautiful, complete with gorgeous landscaping and fountains. The rooms were well appointed, clean, and comfortable and included a balcony with views of the pool and the ocean beyond. We ate all meals there and all were excellent. Our meeting space was at the golf course and worked perfectly for our needs.

This has to be the nicest resort me and my lady has ever stayed at! We came here for a little getaway from San Diego, and this was a short 1 hour drive up the coast in Dana Point, which is super close to Laguna Beach. It was me and my lady's 5 year anniversary and so I wanted to... More

The hotel is huge, lovely and spacious. The prices are huge and not-so-lovely. In addition to the room rate, the daily resort fee + valet parking + other incidentals and taxes = $80+ each night. Breakfast was unreasonably expensive - $22 for fairly ordinary pancakes. $500 for a firepit set-up on the beach - a decadent service at a decadent... More

Of course even when you are somewhere like Dana Point for business pleasure always happens. Very nice hotel with clean comfortable rooms and great service. Great views of the ocean. Easy access to the ocean via hotel shuttle all on their property. Close to art district in Laguna Beach. I know this is a 5 star resort but still thought... More

Came down here just for a day and it was a delightful one! The staff, restaurants, live music, kids play, beach and everything was exceptionally nice. The only problem was that we couldn't get to check out later.. Too busy even if you're platinum SPG member. Anyways, got extra Starwood points for inconvenience. Trolley to the beach is fun too...
