From the minute you arrive on property, you feel the warmth of the staff. Everyone I came in contact with, remembered my name. When I walked around the hotel the next morning, I was greeted multiple times "Good Morning Mr. Weeks."
The rooms are immaculate, and they were nice enough to upgrade me to a corner suite, without me even having to ask. (And I am a base level SPG member.)
There are very few 5 star hotels in the world. The St. Regis Monarch Beach provides the service, the amenities, the grounds, and the staff that deliver a 5 Star property.

Living life from the moment we arrived, until The moment we left! The setting, the service, the swaying of palm trees.....this resort has it all and being in such a beautiful part of Southern California simply added to a perfect weekend....took the tram down to the beach restaurant...now that's a must do...lunch outside watching the waves, the surfers, the whales (well, one whale..way out there). The servers were just delightful....the staff friendly and helpful...breaks from the business meetings were delightfully located in the midst of the beauty. Receptions were held and the food was out of this world...there was a wedding being held while we were there...imagine dreams came true for the newly weds..

Room Tip: 4th,5th or 6th floor for great views facing pool and ocean

Service was terrific! Everywhere you look, staff are smiling, cordial and very attentive. Our room was a deluxe king w/ corner location...w/ ocean, golf course & pool views (very nice). I was in meetings, but my family enjoyed the pool and walking trails. The golf course was quite challenging...lots of undulation, beautiful vistas and fast greens. We did have meeting facilities which were very nice & more than adequate for our needs. A couple of evening receptions were great. Good was all good and staff, once again, handled it beautifully. All in all, a very nice business and family friendly property.

Absolutely gorgeous property! The surrounding area is beautiful. There is a great walking path that goes to the beach perfect for a morning jog or run!

The hotel is gorgeous and the staff is more than helpful.

We stayed for a weekend in June and the weather was great. This resort has everything, golf, beach, gorgeous pool, wonderful spa and great restaurants. The property is not directly on the beach, however, just a few minutes on the tram is access to the hotels private beach.

Hope to get back there one day soon!!!

We had a great stay for a weekend. While the weather was uneven, it was a good time to spend in the spa. Our service in the restaurant in the evening was a little uneven. It took us 2 + hrs to have an entree and dessert, while we watched others come and go. We waited 30 minutes for dessert after it took 45 minutes to get our entrees. That was a bit disappointing. Otherwise, the property is beautiful, the service was great and the rooms are large.
