“Rolling in Luxury”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I travel a lot; however, when I first entered this resort, my mouth literally opened in awe. Elegance and unique architecture combined with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean makes this hotel one of a kind. Each room has its balcony, marble bathroom, and, my favorite, plush bathrobes. Ladies, the spa with incredible ocean views, is irresistible. I felt so pampered an refreshed. I was also mesmerized with beautiful parks overlooking the magnificent ocean waves. If you like golfing, you are in business. There are three golf courses available or guests of this incredible resort. And, at the end of the day, one can enjoy romance while dining in exquisite restaurants. My favorite restaurant is Studio probably because I love French cuisine. The minute one enters the restaurant, one is surrounded with an impeccable service. The view is breathtaking. I like appetizers, and my favorites are Sautéed Pork Rillette and Rabbit and Crayfish Creole. If you like duck, Hudson Valley Duck Breast and Confit will make your mouth watering. Wine was a perfect attribute to a wonderful, romantic night. Sometimes in our lives we have to forget about prices and indulge ourselves in luxury while cloying our lives.

Room Tip: Every room is so comfortable; however, suites are to dye for. Just heaven.

Do you enjoy being addressed by name? Personally directed to where you are to go? The spa package and use of the private pool not to mention the best view of the Pacific, made this hotel spa the best ever. Yes it is pricey, yes the alcohol is steep, but when the houses next to you is going for $25 million, it is worth the extra few bucks.

There are no corners cut here. From the fresh flowers to the pistachios in the nut mix, this is class. So why does this place stand out? Because it is owed by one person. Not a chain or worldwide corporation, but someone who obviously cares about his employees and the experience.

This hotel is amazing as you can see from the other reviews. The only people I would not recommend it for are if you want to go for a run of more than a mile or if you want to bicycle from the hotel. Super busy road with narrow shoulder. My husband is into biking and he says that stretch of the Pacific Coast Highway has one of the highest fatality rates for bicyclers.
But there is a stunning walking path in front of the hotel overlooking the beach that is probably 1/2 mile long so you could run back and forth on that.
We will likely stay at the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point or Pelican Hill again next time, only because of this being a big deal for my husband.
But otherwise the Montage is the best for ocean view location.

Room Tip: All the rooms have an ocean view!

We were at the Montage Laguna Beach for an incentive trip my husband won. We've been on many of these trips staying at high-end hotels and resorts, but the Montage Laguna Beach is one of the best we've been! From the moment you step into the lobby, you have a fantastic view of the ocean, which automatically relaxes you.

A MUST on the list is eating at Studio on the hotel grounds. It is rated the best restaurant in Laguna Beach for a reason. Simply amazing! Chef Craig is extremely talented, as is his staff.

The location is great for a run on the beach and short walk from downtown Laguna, or rent a beachcomber and take a nice bike ride.

Can't say enough about how much we loved this property!

One morning while sitting on the balcony drinking coffee, looking at the ocean, and watching the dolphins swim by, I noticed that down on the lawn, next to the bunny that ate grass there each morning, one of the sprinkler heads had not recessed after turning off. That was the worst thing that happened in four days at Montage. The service is incredible. The staff is extremely professional and service oriented. Everyone. The shuttle driver, housekeeping, pool servers, etc. The rooms are fantastic. Great bathroom with a large tub. Direct access to a beautiful beach and tidepools. This time of year, you can see the whales spouting from your balcony and the dolphins are always there. The pool is beautiful with a view of the ocean. The food, even for a large group, was excellent.

Room Tip: Every room has an ocean view, but higher (floor 3 and up) is better.
