The St. Regis, Monarch Beach is a beautiful hotel, with spa, golf, pool and beach amenities. The service is top-notch and the rooms are beautiful. We especially enjoyed the workout facilities, which were well-equipped and within their spa so there was access to full lockers, etc. Their on-site dining and bars are in general beautiful and several have fantastic views....

I have nothing but favorable impressions, wonderful memories and an outstanding recommendation for the St. Regis Monarch Beach. The staff is ultra-attentive as you would expect and check-in, check-out, help with activities and any possible request are handled flawlessly. I have stayed there 3 times over the last 6 years and the experience is always the same --- memorable and... More

Been coming to St Regis Monarch Resort for over ten years. Just returned from a four night stay. When I checked in Tuesday, I asked Front Desk to arrange for late Sat checkout after 2pm as my family was joining me and I hold 5 star Platinum elite status. No problem he said. I asked to apply Starwood suite upgrade... More

This place is excellent. Excellent service, excellent grounds, excellent amenities, excellent rooms. We opted for the executive suite with, yes, a butler. And, we took advantage of the opportunity. My husband had his clothes pressed and his shoes shined. French press coffee on the veranda in plush robes every morning. Decadent. The best part was they found out it was... More

The reason to give this hotel five stars in the service. Honestly, there are better views of the ocean at nearby hotels. But no one outshines this group in service. From the moment you enter the property to the time you exit, the staff could not do enough or provide more smiles or friendlier attitude. The resturant should also not... More

As someone who has stayed in many St. Regis around the world, I was excited to stay in another USA property. My wife and I are huge fans of the brand, ever since our wedding night stay at the St. Regis NY. For better or worse, we always compare every St. Regis to the one in NY, and the Monarch... More

If you are looking for a relaxing luxurious vacation spot, this is it. the grounds are beautiful, the rooms are great, and the pool is exquisite. The spa is small but adequate. it is not cheep, but luxury comes at a price. if you have the extra cash, rent a cabana by the pool.

An absolutely beautiful hotel. Very accomodating staff, beautiful room, grounds. Truly enjoyed my stay. 3 highlights to share. They are not directly on the beach, but have a nice shuttle service to their private beach. Very nice beach accommodations. I enjoyed multiple sunsets from the outdoor patio in front of the fireplace. They have many hummingbirds.

I stayed at this resort last week for 6 nights to attend a conference and mix in some family time at the beach. It is quite honestly, the best resort we have experienced in Southern California! While we have traveled around southern CA during the summer to escape the Summer hear in AZ, we have completely fallen in love with... More
