I recently stayed at the resort and was very, very impressed with the renovations. Sam at Valet, Ricky and David at the front desk were awesome. A little tricky to find our room, maybe some better signage, but once we got there, awesome. Mike?? Our butler/ambassador was super nice and the view of the golf course was better than the... More

We did a staycation for my birthday at this resort and found that the property is just beautiful. The room was spacious and updated and the bathroom was huge. Spotless as well. It had a nice balcony overlooking the pool area. We spent time at the pool and there were many attendants to help you get setup and provide food... More

This hotel is beautiful. But more importantly, the staff is exceptional. From the first employee who RAN to my car to help with my bags, to the minute I checked out, I had a great experience at this hotel. The property is utterly gorgeous. I saw a few weddings which also looked amazing. I would return with my wife (and... More

The Teachers at the Miraval Spa were incredibly Professional, Knowledgeable, Hard Working, and Helpful. Trish Sachs is one of the best Trainers that I have ever worked with. Spa treatments were wonderful. Monarch Beach Hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Food was excellent. I will go back.
