This hotel was beautiful, and the staff was very accommodating. There is a beach that guests can access, and trolley takes you there, that is beautiful and relaxing. During my stay it was super windy, but still worth a visit. The pool area was nice, and the staff was great. Good hotel for any business events. Don't forget to make...

This was definitely a top notch location. From the ocean views to the friendly staff, everything was picture perfect. When I travel to a resort like this, I really appreciate how everyone is so attentive to make my stay a great one. This was the second time I have stayed here and would choose the Monarch Resort again, hands down!

The beach club is really great, the beach itself is pristine. I coordinated a surfing lesson which was awesome. The location is very convenient--about 1.5-2hr from LAX depending upon traffic. Only issues were the fireplace...

What a beautiful hotel, very elegant! Spacious room, friendly staff, and wonderful food. Relaxing views of the hills and the water. They took really good care of our business group with nice meeting rooms and a variety of healthy meals.

I do a lot of business travel and it is hard work these days on the long airport waits and the crowded airplanes. So when you finally get to your destination and to your home away from home - usually a hotel, you are a bit on the exhausted side, and on high alert for the right room and the...

Last time we visited was December of last year. They had so many cute activities for kids that we really loved it. For example, they converted one of the ballrooms to a kids movie theater with snacks, large projector, games and beautiful decorations. It's little things like this that make a hotel stand out. I'm going back tomorrow with the...

This is an absolute stunning resort. Service was great and the location is seriously amazing. It literally feels like you are right at the waters edge. You are not very far from Laguna Beach or Newport and it is a beautiful drive along the coastal highway. It is only a few minutes down to the beach on their complimentary beach...
