Montage Laguna Beach
Ranked #1 of 22 Hotels in Laguna Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The Montage Laguna Beach is stunning, and yet as comfortable as staying in a friend's beach house. The architecture has a California open air feel that really makes it special. The pool is lovely and expansive. We laid by the spa pool which has the best views. The beach is even more stunning than the pool area-- take a walk on the beach early morning, it's worth waking up for. Breakfast was excellent. I am not a fan of egg white omelet's but the waiter insisted I try it and I thought it was outstanding. The best omelet I'd had in years. The staff went out of their way to be accommodating at every turn. Truly some of the sharpest I've seen at any hotel. The bar had piano player (David Baker?) who was truly a talent. The bartender knew his cocktails. The room was clean and had every amenity one could need on a weekend away. My only criticism of this hotel is the layout is confusing, so it would be nice if there were some better signage leading to the elevators and lobby. My other small criticism was the prices in the spa. $270 + tip for a facial (same price for a massage) is very high. We had multiple services (facials, massages, hair styling) and they were good, but for over $300 the facial, for example, should have had something special about it. It was simply a standard facial. The next day when we went to use the spa pool we were told we must book more services in order to sit by that pool again. Considering we spent nearly $1000 at the spa on the prior afternoon, it seemed silly to me to say that to a guest. However to be fair, everyone was polite and helpful, and candidly no one asked us to move from the spa pool. The gym was also very well appointed. We look forward to going back to the Montage. If you haven't been to the Beverly Hills Montage or Deer Valley, check those out. They have the same top notch service and amenities.

The Montage Laguna Beach is always a great place to unwind and relax whether by the pool, the beach, or the spa. Our favorite spot is the adult pool at the Spa where we like to read and catch some rays. The Montage is also a favored spot for meetings. As a meeting planner, I can say the resort staff is a joy to work with. Great food, great location and great time with great folks!

Room Tip: All rooms are fabulous but our favorites are the north tower on the third or forth floors.

Our first trip to California and we were lucky enough to spend it in beautiful Laguna Beach at the Montage resort. It is such a peaceful place...a very zen experience for me. The views are magnificent, the rooms are very nice, the staff is professional and accommodating, the food is scrumptious! I did yoga in the spa overlooking the ocean. It is the place to be pampered and get away from it all. Yes, it is pricey--the rooms, the food, everything in the area is pricey, but worth a splurge.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a view and balcony. Ours was a side ocean view. It might be nice to have a full o...

My husband and I drove down from Los Angeles and stayed at The Montage for only one night for my birthday, and I wish we could have stayed longer. We travel frequently and typically stay in the finest of hotels all over the world - The Montage ranks among the top resort hotels I've ever stayed. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for" and in this instance it is true - this is not an inexpensive proposition but it was worth every penny. We had a room with a balcony and a gorgeous full ocean view. The room was very tastefully decorated--beach elegance -- well appointed and very comfortable. The word "no" is not in the vocabulary of any of the staff here - anything we asked for, the staff found a way to accommodate the request. We took a wonderful beach walk in the morning and although the beach is public, it is quiet, clean and just gorgeous. The spa is one of the most beautiful and best I have ever experienced, and my massage was amazing. We ate lunch at Mosaic and it was delicious, (the most amazing Bloody Mary I've ever had!), although breakfast at The Loft was slightly disappointing. The common areas are inviting and cozy, there are a couple of unique gift shops, and there is a view from every spot in the place - inside and out. We can't wait to return for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Pay up and get a full ocean view

Aside from peaceful ambience and views, Montage resorts have impeccable staff, scrumptious food, ideal location for sightseeing and venues...however the beds are beyond luxury. We are going to order the bed and linens-loved it so much. Better than Westin heavenly bed in our opinion and very close to the luxury of the Between the Sheets set we have at home which was unquestionably expensive. The tasting menu at Studio was a foodie must. We took a shuttle to Pageant of the Masters and the dinner recommendation from concierge for 370 Common was truly wonderful. Our driver Ramone was entertaining and gave us good conversation and pointed out things we should see. The loft breakfast was great- highly recommend the egg white omelette made with garlic, yes, garlic. Delicious. We sat on the beach under umbrellas and it doesn't get much more relaxing on a gorgeous day like we had. Will return.

We have stayed for a week at Montage twice now and each time is such an amazing experience that we never want to leave!!! Before I comment on the resort itself, I just have to describe the most incredible server I have ever met in any restaurant. At our most recent visit, we had Amanda as our server every morning for breakfast. To say she was exceptional, would be an understatement. By our second day, she had memorized our entire family of 5's favorite breakfast drink and would have it ready for us just minutes after sitting down. My kids loved the rock candy that accompanied the hot chocolate so by the second day, she began bringing extra. My son absolutely raves about the complementary banana bread served each morning and when Amanda overheard him, so started to always bring him extra slices! In fact, when we thanked her and told her how much he loved it, she asked the chef if she could give us the recipe and she printed it up for us! She noticed we would play word games with our kids during breakfast while waiting for our food. So she took the initiative to find us some word games that she put together for us to play as a family and even took the time to put our name on it! The most stunning aspect of this unbelievable young woman's character is that on the morning of our last breakfast, we arrived at our reserved table and in the middle of the table there was this beautiful basket overflowing with wonderful treats AND a gorgeous, coffee table type book with stunning photos from around Southern California and she topped it off with one of the most beautiful and touching handwritten thank you cards we have ever received! Amanda was thanking US. To say the least, we were floored and I was brought to tears by her thoughtfulness. I could not believe it. Truly amazing and I made sure to come home and write a letter to her manager detailing what a treasure he has in this young woman!

Beyond having that great service from Amanda, Montage is just an incredibly wonderful place overall. We visited based on the recommendation of a friend and it was one of the best recommendations we have received. When possible, book a room with a view of the pool/ocean. It is spectacular. Both times we have stayed, we requested rooms on the top floor overlooking the pool and our view looked just like the photo on the advertisements - breathtaking! From the moment you pull up to valet your car, it is like time stops and all of life's stress stays in the car while you just float into this atmosphere of pure bliss! You know you are having a phenomenal vacation, when the most challenging decision is whether to book a cabana by the pool or go to the beach! The beach is not technically considered "private", but it is not crowded at all and we did not have people coming up to us off the street trying to sell us things (unlike we experienced recently on the beach in the French Riviera at a 5 star resort). The best part is that even on the beach there is Montage staff there to set up your chair, towels, side table, and umbrellas. These exceptionally polite and attentive young men will even go get lunch from the resort restaurants and bring it down to the beach for you! These guys work hard doing thankless jobs so we make sure not only to thank them sincerely each and every time, but also to tip them well each time. My kids not only loved seeing Amanda each day at breakfast, but they loved dining on the patio overlooking the pool and ocean and excitedly planning our day of complete and total relaxation.

I could just go on and on. The rooms are magnificently appointed, spotlessly clean, and indulgent -- especially nice with private balconies overlooking the incredible view.

Since staying at Montage, we compare every other resort to it and we still have not found this fantastic combination of truly superior customer service, location, and outstanding accommodations. Hands down our favorite resort in our many years of traveling. And when we think of complete and total relaxation, Montage is the name that comes to mind immediately! If you visiting Laguna Beach, this resort is a standout.

Room Tip: Go for rooms with a view of the pool/ocean. Truly spectacular!
