What's great here? The bar - great drinks - the restaurant - fabulous - the cafe - excellent and the service - can't get any better. The gym, the spa, and the classes also were very good. The rooms are great, the amenities awesome and the staff is helpful and cheerful. What I didn't love were the prices - $14... More

From the minute you arrive at the hotel, you feel like you are the most important guest there. Staff overwhelms the car taking luggage, welcoming you and directing you to the desk. There was no wait for check-in with at least 6 people ready to help guests. If you are a Starwood resorts member you entitled to 15% off everything... More

Traveled here for a 4 day conference. Facilities are excellent and the food, most of which was served buffet style for our group was also very good, actually surprisingly good. Room was very well appointed, including coffee maker (I noticed some reviewers complained that one was not available or extra was charged for one.) The beach is a good distance... More

We had our destination wedding ceremony on Saturday, December 27th, 2014 at the St. Regis Monarch Beach (Botanical Garden) and reception right next door at Club 19. We worked directly with Kelly O'dell who made our wedding planning experience so lovely. We saw the venue once during labor day, walked through the requirements and we were sold! The venue not...

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

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...
