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.
