Positives: Spent this past weekend at the St. Regis Monarch Beach. The check in was fast and courteous. The nice gentleman asked if we are celebrating anything special and we told him we were celebrating our 1 year anniversary. He automatically called room service and sent us a nice bottle of champagne. He advised us about attending the champagne sabering... More

We had a wonderful experience at this 5 star hotel. The staff at all areas were extremely friendly and provided top notch service. Everything you expect from a St. Regis. The grounds and pools were very well maintained. While not cheap, the room rate was reasonable given the type of hotel/location, etc. The pool is great and the spa is... More

Came down from Northern California as an exhibitor at the Dana Point Concours and had a terrific stay at the St. Regis from beginning to end. It was an extremely busy weekend for all of the staff at the hotel, but we were very impressed by the caring staff here, from the valets upon check-in, the front desk staff, and... More

A wonderful stay from the moment we arrived! Now I will admit that we are Starwood Preferred members, but they treated us like royalty. Everyone from the check-in, bell man, concierge...extraordinary service. Wonderful room service, maid service and staff throughout our stay. The rooms are luxurious, the beds so comfortable and very nice bathroom amenities. The food delicious - which... More

I am really surprised with all the positive comments on here as we experienced sheer disgrace! From the moment we checked it up to the point we checked out, a comedy of errors ruined our stay. Our check-in did not go as smoothly as we could have hoped for. Staff is too busy up selling suites and the manager told... More

We stayed a day and night here after a long but very fun day at Disneyland with our grandchildren. The resort was gorgeous and the kids loved the ride to the beach and the the day they spent playing on the beach. The bathrooms are luxury to the max. A little bit of a mixup at check-in, the key cards... More

My wife and I snuck off for a night away and brunch to celebrate Mother's Day. The Monarch Beach/Dana Point area has some fabulous resorts, and between the Montage, the Pelican Hill, and the Ritz, it would have been tough to pick a loser between them. First, the negative: Although the resort is on the wrong side of the PC... More

We stayed here for a weekend in May and this property reminds me of why its my favorite resort to stay at time and time again. Check in was prompt, we had a fabulous pool view room with a private balcony. We rented a poolside cabana for the day which was nice, the only drawback was the somewhat accusatory remark... More
