Paradise! Staff, property, and location are all absolutely perfect. If it was more affordable i would stay for weeks on end! There were some small housekeeping issues that were resolved by calling front desk. Loved the fee yoga classes.

Our recent visit to the Monarch Beach Resort was outstanding and made special by the staff. We were staying at the hotel while our granddaughter was having heart surgery at Cedars Sinai Medical Center and the entire staff was aware of our circumstances and went out if their way to speak with us and offer any assistance. The caring by...

The resort is a great location to unwind, relax and splurge. It had amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, picturesque setting for golf, great food options including Michael Mina restaurant, healthy lifestyle offers in the form of yoga, Pilates, spinning, etc and the Miraval spa. However the thing which separates it from other luxury resorts is the exemplary level of...

The Monarch's hot tub scene is worth it, and the food is good, but the details were off. From the daily sign up for WiFi to the lack of hot water in the morning, as well as the long line for check in and check out, the Monarch just failed to deliver the value that should go along with its...

As a frequent traveler, and in the hospitality industry, I am still blown away! From Lyle making our check in/bellman experience amazing, to Brandon at the pool every single staff person at the property was top notch. The grounds are amazing, the renovation is breathtaking and every inch of the property is 5 stars! We will be back!

Resort has many amenities and you won't spend much time there. I had a King suite that did not have a pool/court yard view. It didn't make a difference to me because I didn't spend time there other than to sleep. Very friendly staff.

This hotel is lovely, but my main gripe is with their lack of customer service. For being a 5 star property, I would have expected better. I had no hot water for 2 days and talked to the front desk THREE times before it was fixed (and when it was fixed, they just replaced the shower head- why that worked,...

This hotel is a hillside piece of heaven. Great views, delightful staff and amazing grounds, including the beautiful golf course and beach access on property. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The entire experience is one you'll remember and want to revisit with others.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The resort is located on a beautiful piece of property overlooking the ocean. However, I was very disappointed in the meals that I ordered at two of the restaurants, AVEO and Part & Parcel. I expect when I order a $59.00 meal (Surf & Turf) that it would be really delicious. However, the...
