This is truly a beautiful hotel. The room we stayed in was perfect. Service was excellent. I would highly recommend staying here.

I spent 4 days at the St. Regis Monarch Beach with colleagues from work. Prior to coming, I was reassured several times both by central reservations and the reservations staff on site that it was a beachfront resort, just steps from the ocean. I was disappointed to learn that this information was outright false, since it was one of the... More

Stayed here while attending the California Wine Festival. The property is beautiful, the staff quick, attentive, friendly and not pretentious. The food and drinks were very good. Dan, in the salon, gives a great manicure. Spa staff very friendly and genuine. Bell/Valet staff were exceptional. The room is spacious and beds are extremely comfortable. Love the large, deep tub for... More

I want to make it known that we are PLATINUM STARWOOD members and have traveled to many Starwood Properties throughout the USA, MEXICO and EUROPE and after our experience here at Monarch Beach I had to share this nightmare. My wife, in-laws and 3 children stayed at the St. Regis during the Easter Holiday which was to be a nice... More

I stayed at the St. Regis for a quick weekend getaway with my husband and we loved every minute of it. A few highlights: 1) Jared at the Front Desk provided a warm and genuine welcome, pointing at all the highlights of the resort without having the rehearsed feeling that you get at some resorts. 2) The maintenance of the...

I am a big fan of Starwood Hotels --SPG Platinum--and resisted writing this review but the experience was so bad it still sticks with me six months later. So here it is: This stay was at the end--and supposedly the apex--of a week-long getaway from LA. After two days here all I wanted to do was get away from the... More

We recently spent a week at this property, along with extended family and young children. We were there as part of a large program for the Passover holiday. In excess of 800 people were on site as part of the program. Incredibly, due largely to the size and layout of the property, it was able to absorb this group quite... More

Upon arrival, the resort gave a terrific first impression! It was beautiful, clean, and had lots of lovely tropical vegetation in the courtyard. The lobby was also very nice. The front desk staff was always friendly and quite accommodating. It took me a good solid day to successfully navigate the large resort--I kept getting turned around and lost at first.... More

We often stay at the St. Regis when in the area and have grown accustomed to the usual good service. Our recent stay was a giant disappointment. Traveling with family, we knew we would be ordering food poolside. It was a nice warm weekend and there were a moderate number of guests around the pool. Pool service? Non existent. We... More

This resort is amazing- I recommend playing golf here (if you are a golfer) and visiting the Monarch Bay Club. Everything was top notch- spa, service and amentities. I didn't want to leave!
