Had an amazing stay. Gorgeous expansive property with fantastic service. We loved our 2 lunches at the Monarch Bay Beach Club…delicious food & cocktails in a beautiful oceanfront setting. The rooms are huge…over 500sf. We were upgraded to a courtyard view which provided beautiful views of this stunning property! Highly recommend.

This is our second time staying at this property and used our Hilton Night Certificate for our stay. On this trip, we celebrated my son's 11th birthday. As a Hilton Diamond Member, we were upgraded to a Poolside Fireside Terrace Room. This property has beautiful grounds. Just amazing. Loved the private beach club access via golf cart. WA Monarch Beach team was wonderful especially the team that made us feel at home: Guest Relations: Juainda Front Desk: Chantal R and Nicole M. Bellman: Lyle A. Vallet Staff: Alejandro P.

My family and I had a fabulous staycation! :) Enjoyed it thoroughly as the staff were friendly and I felt safe to stay here with children even in the middle of the pandemic. The tram ride to the beach is absolutely amazing as the view both in the day and evening are just amazing. Would love to come back here soon.

We stayed at the beautiful Monarch Beach property for a mother/daughter birthday celebration. From the moment we arrived at the hotel, we felt spoiled. We were upgraded to a beautiful ocean view room. The property is gorgeous. Walked along the path to the private beach club to catch the sunset. Not to worry if you don't want to walk back, the tram is readily available to take you back to your room. We had a delicious dinner at the steakhouse. The next day we enjoyed wonderful massages at the spa. Overall our experience was definitely 5 stars. Cant wait to go back.

I spent the weekend at Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach to celebrate my daughter’s 21st Birthday. We had a wonderful time. The staff were all friendly and professional. Lucinda Rogers in particular reached out to me days before our arrival and planned a very nice surprise. We had a memorable experience and will definitely be coming back.
