“What a beautiful pool! It lives up to the hype!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

The Montage Hotel does in fact live up to the hype! I had the pleasure of staying here for a few days and made sure I used every amenity you could speak of. I used the spa and was introduced to a technique where you go into the sauna, jacuzzi and then you take a cold plunge! Whoa... that was such an unbelievable experience. The staff was outstanding and I felt sooo special in the spa.

Having lunch by the pool with our children was special as you could see the ocean and spend time with the family.

Also, the surrounding areas of the hotel are so well kept with such beautiful flowers. I would recommend taking your Christmas picture here. You will enjoy yourself.

And of course, the pool is beautiful and the water was so warm that I did not want to exit the pool. Enjoy yourselves.

A wonderful location with lovely rooms and excellent service. It is on the shore with a lovely walking path. The pool is spectacular. A pure joy to stay here.

Your entrance to the Montage is breathtaking and surprising, given its understated and modest exterior. The staff is dedicated to making your stay at the resort memorable, and everyone is friendly, helpful, and eager to please. The grounds are simply amazing, and the dining choices are fantastic. They have a driver to bring you into the town of Laguna Beach, and he is very friendly and just like a private concierge. I accidentally left a bathing suit rolled up inside of a towel, which was picked up by housecleaning. They were able to find it no problem, but also offered to reimburse me if they were unable to locate it. I would love the opportunity to return here!

This place is just beautiful all the way from the entrance to the exit out the back. This hotel is situated right off of the Pacific Coast Highway so if you are traveling that route you can't miss it. The entrance was gorgeous and they have a great pool area but my favorite place of all was the beach out back. I don't know how many people ventured outside of the hotel but I don't see how you could not. If you have a view of the ocean from your room you lucked out, but to really experience the peace and tranquility of Laguna Beach you HAVE to visit the beach.

If you travel along the path right out back you will find some steps that will lead you down to the beach area. Head to the right and boy will you be amazed. There are mini coves with crabs and fish that swim around, seaweed has brushed up along the shore and you can collect seashells, whatever you heart desires. My Aunt first told me about this place and when she passed away last year I had to make it a goal that I would visit this place. She loved meditating here and so did I. I will add some pictures so you can see the glory and wonder that is so small.

My husband and I decided for a quick getaway just for the night before all the Christmas craziness started and we decided to try the Montage for the first time. Wow! From the moment you arrive the check in is warm and inviting. Instead of having you wait while they plug you in like other hotels, the Montage gives you the impression that they have been waiting for you expectantly. The Concierge personally walks you to your room and explains the room to you as if it were yours forever. The room itself is so yummy you are tempted to never leave it: Perfect bedding with tons of fluffy pillows, champagne on ice (complimentary), a giant marble bathroom with incredible toiletries, and a great loofa scrubber that I am still enjoying at home. But the best part of the hotel is outside...the grounds are impeccable!! The ocean, the flowers, the walkways, the gulls, the light jazz in the air....are we on Maui? The pool is insane and the beach down below is perfect. In the evening the lounges were full of people having a great time the breakfast in the morning overlooking the sea was fantastic. Our only regret is that we only stayed one day. I plan on going back in the summer to take advantage of the beach and pool...did I mention that they have a 10,000 SF spa?

Room Tip: They are all great
