“breath taking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

This is my favorite hotel of all time! The customer service is out of this world. They escort you to your room..there was champagne and strawberries waiting in the room. Laying out by the pool someone comes around and cleans your sunglasses and mists you! The hotel is gorgeous and you are right on the Pacific! There was a wedding going on while we stayed there! I can only dream of having a wedding at this nice of a hotel!

Room Tip: It's in South Laguna Beach..so it's a ways from the heart of town. They offer FREE private t...

This is a great resort nestled on the Pacific Coast with a top notch staff. While not inexpensive, you do feel that the property values you and your privacy, so the amount of money spent is a bit of a splurge (unless your filthy rich). The pool and beach area are wonderful and relaxing, and the gym/spa are equally impressive. Dining on the resort was great, and the food was always above expectations. Ask for a floor on the 4th level or 5th level, as those offer the best view.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better

All I can say is that if you appreciate Old California charm and impeccable service coupled with a really beautiful site, excellent food, and an atmosphere that really rejuvenates frayed nerves and an overworked spirit, then this is the place. What a great find! Was here for a couple fo days for a business meeting and will absolutely stay longer next time.

While in Southern California, the Montage is a great getaway place for 2-3 nights. Great for families and just sitting back and relaxing. The pool, spa and facilities are amazing. Not to mention taking an early morning walk along the beach, just takes you to a different place.

Will definitely return....

This is a fantastic location for a hotel. Water crashing on rocks, sunset view. Just amazing. Hotel staff was very friendly and courteous. The only negative was that the food wasn't quite up to snuff. The food prices are high, which you would expect at a hotel like this, and I had an AMAZING steak at one of their restaurants (Cofee crusted or something like that), but simple eggs seemed to be a bit more difficult. They couldn't get them to a soft scramble. Not a huge thing, but they set the bar high for themselves with everything else.

They made me feel welcome, the rooms were great, but the kitchen needs to be a bit more on their game.

Valet service in particular was terrible. 15 minute wait to park car and 30 minute wait for car delivery. Unacceptable for this caliber of a hotel. Restaurant service at Mosaic (poolside restaurant) was equally bad. Servers serving the pool area were slow an poorly trained. Location is breathtaking, though.

Company trip for just a single night. In retrospect should have brought my wife and extended my stay. Personnel at the hotel were over the top. Rooms were perfect. Beautiful views. Our buffet breakfast and lunch were excellent. This is the way all hotels should be!
