We loved this resort. Rooms were beautiful- we stayed in a studio suite with an ocean view. Lovely balcony for morning coffee. Thoughtful and attentive service. Excellent food. Poolside service was a tad spotty but overall it wasn't a big deal. All employees were pleasant and helpful and seemed to genuinely love their jobs. Concierge Melissa was particularly helpful.

I stayed at the Monarch Beach Resort for St Patrick's day for my sister in laws birthday! From beginning to end, MBR extended wonderful hospitality! The valets were warm and welcoming, their welcome team delivered champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to celebrate my sister in law, and Austin, the house car driver saved us from Uber fares and drove us...

Beautiful hotel and helpful staff, especially Ashley and Corey from Stonehill Tavern. They made our private dinner absolutely perfect! The resort has terrific views, is very clean, and everyone there is smiling.

Excellent customer service! We stayed For a corporate event in early April and Felipe waited on our table each evening. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a fabulous experience! And, although it was a large crowd, he remembered my personal preferences each night!

Awesome property with a great golf course. Amazing restaurants and very well presented large spacious rooms. Only disappointment is the beach!! There is literally none... the nearest beach is a 2 mile walk and unfortunately in my short two day visit for a Confrence, I could not do the trek!

Wow! First and foremost this is a beautiful resort! Never been in the area before, but I can't imagine that there is a better spot in this area. The people are amazing. In particular, Mateo and Meghan at the pool bar are outstanding. They keep their poise no matter how busy they are. They remember everybody's name. And most importantly,...

This hotel has it all with an amazing location, amenities and service! A great place for a couple of family if you want a luxurious stay in Southern California! The restaurants were excellent and service overall was as good as any hotel if I have ever stayed at!

Location is definitely beautiful- Golf course was subpar as it had just been punched and scalped before arrival. Even so it is only a par 70, has a couple of beautiful holes but the rest of it was quite average. Breakfast bar, Café and Dining experience - Café and dining experience expensive but adequate. The dining experience was extremely expensive-...
