“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2010

After reading some of the other reviews, I'd have to agree with 5starfamily's review a bit. I disagree that it only get's 3 stars....This is defnitely a 5 star hotel, but I feel that it has to be rated against other 5 star hotels. I hadn't thought about it, but agree that the walls were a bit thin... I could hear the people next door really well including their music at 2 am.

The restaurant food was not amazing but it was good although incredibly pricey. At the loft restaurant they took the kids in the back kitchen to make sundaes... They LOVED it.

The staff was absolutely awesome.

Pool was great. Beach was great. View was great

Kids also loved the bunnies that populate the grounds

Stayed 1 night end of March to celebrate our son's 13th birthday. It was the middle of the week, so resort was not crowded. Being escorted to your room rather than checking in at the front desk is a very nice touch. It was our 1st stay and the Director of Guest Services personally escorted us. Bellman was quick with our luggage and delivered a small bottle of wine for us along with 2 bottles of cider for the kids.

Our room was on the 4th floor with the best view of the ocean and pool you can imagine. I didn't want to leave the room/balcony but the grounds were just as stunning. The bathroom was a nice size and the candles provided a relaxing touch. Loved the Agraria amenities, especially the lemon verbena soap. Very quiet and peaceful night of sleep. No noice heard at all and we were just down the way from The Loft.

The pool was heated and you could take towels down to the beach which we did.

When we left, valet brought our vehicle up and had put 2 "Montage" caps in the van for the boys. They had admired them in the gift shop the day before! Tim the Director came out to see if we enjoyed ourselves.... how could we not! Cannot wait to go back.

Note: Our favorite before experiencing the Montage had been The Four Seasons in Las Vegas.... also a wonderful destination. We have stayed there frequently because they always upgrade us to a suite and they are also so attentive. But Montage has that beach!!!

I do not believe this not a 5 star hotel, spa or restaurants.
My family live in Southern California and travel to 5 star resorts every 3 months.
The Montage does a great job faking a 5 star but misses the true polish of a great hotel.

Restaurants (Loft, Studio and poolside) – mostly average food and not consistent

Spa – average. My daughter, husband and I had massages. Two of us said they missed the mark.

Hotel – walls are thin. My teenagers were in the room next door. They repeated word for word my conversation with my husband and the conversation of the people next door to them on the other side. Beds are very nice. We did not have turn down the first night so I had to call for it the next night. We heard the music for a private party past 11:00 so be aware if you are on the top two floors close to the lobby. The views were exceptional. The pool and rooms were extremely clean.

I think there are some great parts of the hotel but it is missing the heart of a 5 star.

Stayed here one night and absolutely loved it. The hotel is just stunning. Beautiful craftsman style, friendly service, gorgeous spa, the gym looks out over the ocean, very nicely appointed rooms and comfortable bed. Our only slight complaint, and just something personal to us, was that the service in the Studio restaurant was a bit too much. It is their fine dining restaurant, the food was wonderful, the view is of the ocean but we couldn't even turn out heads without someone there trying to help us to see if we needed anything. It was just a bit too much for us. I would highly suggest this hotel over the St Regis Monarch Beach and will definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the Montage 5 nights in February. It was a great experience in every way. Probably my best hotel experience ever.

I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a complete pampered stay! The rooms are clean and comfortable not to mention the huge bathroom! The staff is fantastic! Every hotel should have a training course as those that work at the Montage! The views are breath taking!

Stayed October 2008, traveled with friends
