“Absolutely beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

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.

Room Tip: all rooms are great. we have stayed in simple rooms and suits. if you can get an ocean view

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 this property.

The Service is EXCELLENT! The rooms are impeccable. The amenities with access to first class pools and the associated Beach club are outstanding and gives you the best of what S. CA has to offer.

It will now be a part of our summer adventure for many years to come - convention or not!

My wife and I stayed at the St. Regis in May of this year and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. The room was spacious and very nicely appointed, the staff were great, and the onsite restaurants were phenomenal. Loved the service and food by the pool and the easy access to the golf course. This is a fantastic property that is worth the visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the ocean

The property is beautiful. I felt like I was in Hawaii. The service was impeccable. The Sunday brunch was the best I ever had. My boyfriend and I had stayed at the Grand Del Mar as amazing as that was this hotel beats it by a hair. My boyfriend went downstairs to get me a coffee this morning and they greeted him by his name at the coffee shop. .I'm impressed. This place did not miss a beat. Thanks for a wonderful time. We will be back

Room Tip: ask for a high floor with a ocean view.

I attended a conference here and was really impressed by the hotel and the property. Many of the rooms have a view of the ocean off in the distance (over the golf course) and the property is just spectacular.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very automated and the technology is really impressive. I look forward to an opportunity to visit again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor. The higher the floor the better the view.

My stay at the St Regis was just perfect. When first walking in the Hotel the Valet and the Bellman were very nice, Ariel at Check In was very helpful and so pleasant. Staff is very smilly, the SPA was a great experience, Tyler at the restaurant took a very good care of us. I would like to thanks Kimber the Front Desk Manager that send us some very nice aminities that we enjoyed facing the Sunset. I would definitly recommand this place for a very nice get away from the City and for people that are looking to relax. Make sure you enjoy the sunset from the Bar around the fireplace, it is great !
