“view beyond words, food amazing, spa overpriced!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I didn't stay at this hotel but was told to go for the day while in LA and I'm so glad that I did From the driveway to the ocean you know you are somewhere special. The views are amazing, the grounds beautiful, everything is just so incredibly special. I ate breakfast at the Loft which was expensive for eggs ($43.00 total with tip, one person) but the view was worth it. I did a manicure at the spa and although I sat outside at a beautiful view/pool, the manicure was $70.00 which was a joke. it was no different from my local place that charges $16.00 and I get a neck massage which I didn't get at this place. I'm sure if you are staying there and splurging it is fine, but not worth the money on that one. Otherwise it is amazing!!

You def. pay for it here!!! and then some... but Its a 5 star experience all the way.
we sent my parents here for their anniversary and not only did the staff refer to them by name but everyone was so gracious and helpful. The pool was amazing... not that it was the best ive ever seen but the view from the pool was to die for. the food and drinks poolside were awesome too. we had a family day there to surprise my folks and it was top notch.
they were able to take the towncar to dinner in laguna to eat off site and everything.
couldnt have been better (unless it was a couple hundy cheaper)

The Laguna Beach Montage Hotel is one of a kind, nestled into a hillside overlooking a beautiful Bay. Every room has an ocean view which creates a very restful atmosphere. The pools also are situated to view the ocean and are central to the property. The characteristics of the Hotel are superb customer service, expansive views, lovely craftsman style architecture, a sublime spa and delicious food in all of the restaurants. This is a job well done! Beautiful weather only added to the fabulous experience~!

When you arrive at the Montage, you are greeted by valets who are both efficient and glad to see you. The second time you arrive, they remember you.

That level of service continues through your stay--the staff smiles, they respond to your every request, and they have a "will do" attitude.

I asked our waitress at the loft how she liked working there. She was a six year employee and loved her job and management of the hotel. She revealed that she was one of more than 40! employees that the hotel had trained in their sommelier program. She was a Som 1 studying for Som 2. That's impressive. By the way, both the food and service were great.

Every aspect of our stay was first class.

My wife and I are former 25 year Californians. We returned recently for a short stay in Laguna at the Montage.

From the moment you walk into the lobby it is a great experience. 5 stars in all respects. Serice is exceptional , rooms are nice.

The piano player in the lobby ispvexceptional. Go there, have a drink and enjoy. The bartenders in the lobby are fabulous.

Is it expensive? Yes of course but well worth it. Treat yourself and GO

From the moment you arrive on the property, you will be amazed. Every single person I had any contact with was ultra professional and was genuinely interested in my happiness and complete satisfaction. Front desk, gift shop, housecleaning, car parker, you name it, they were great.

The rooms were very elegant and spacious, although an in-room coffee/tea maker would have been nice.

The view is amazing and the hotel has really tried to make sure that view is maximized throughout the property. They even hire falconers to walk around the property with beautiful falcons on their wrist/glove to keep the seagulls from pestering the guests. Great idea!
