What a beautiful property! Rooms are rather trendy, but comfortable. Love the elaborate fountains throughout the grounds. Pool was fantastic. Hotel is very large and sometimes confusing to navigate and get to destinations quickly! Superb service!

Like another reader stated, we had read the earlier negative reviews and were a bit concerned. But we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Stayed for 5 nights last part of June. Even though our room did not overlook the ocean, we were on the 6th floor with a garden view and were actually privileged to witness a wedding ceremony take place... More

The whole experience was wonderful beginning with our arrival. The concierge was the most helpful I've ever used. The rooms, grounds, hotel lobby and restaurants were immaculate. The entire staff, ie; waiters, concierge, desk help, housekeeping, everyone was awesome! I can not wait to return to this wonderful hotel. We were there for five days and used several of the...

I have stayed at the Ritz nearby, but the St. Regis is the spot for us now. We have come here 4 or 5 times. Everything about the St. Regis (with one exception) is just at the top of the game. The rooms are absolutely among the best 5 star rooms I have stayed in (Georges V, Peninsula, Ritz Paris,... More

This place is so amazing that if I lived in Orange County I would come here just for a weekend getaway. The service, beach, room, shops, food, everything was so over the top. STAY HERE!

The hotel was beautiful, the staff were attentive and helpful, the service was impeccable, the food was amazing, and our room was great. Even though we had the dreaded June gloom all weekend we all had a fabulous time. In fact we never left the hotel...except to go down to the private beach, which was so heavenly. My son asked...

First off let me say that I read some of the older post that were negative and almost didnt come. I've stayed at the Ritz and Montage in Laguna and have a pretty good idea what the plusses and minuses are. Let’s start with the beach. The beach at the Montage and the Ritz are mobbed. They have public access... More

Our July 2009 stay at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort was absolutely incredible. We are from Indiana and went to San Diego to vacation. Originally, we had planned to stay at the St. Regis only two days of our six day vacation, but the hotel and surroundings were so beautiful we could not leave. We changed our travel plans... More

Quick rundown of our 4th of July weekend. We were there for 2 nights with our 2 kids. The hotel is beyond beautiful and romantic. The rooms are very large (if you get the 2 queen beds) and beautiful. The bathrooms are fab, super clean and have all the best toilteries. The hotel is immaculate. The pools are fantastic, the... More

We wish we would have opted for a room at the Montage Lugano Beach vs. splurging on a resort-view suite for the same price at the St. Regis. Having said that, the St. Regis is a beautiful grand luxury non-ocean-front property. The whole experience is expensive, but if you know that, and are okay with it going into it, it... More
