An amazing customer service experience. Beautiful walking paths over looking the ocean. Three restaurant options. Aveo is good for breakfast but not dinner. Although their is a beautiful outdoor patio the food choices and quality were better at breakfast. The Monarch Beach Club is a wonderful outdoor dining experience but limited seating so make sure to have a reservation. They...

Was pointing out a lot of nits last time I stayed. This time was much improved. Starting with their 'guest loyalty' person who really rewarded return guest with nice touches. Hotel is gorgeous and room was gorgeous. Valet was incredible in service as was room service server at night. Bay club service was also a stand out and gym very...

While they have tried to make this enormous property accessible, it lacks the resources to accommodate the capacity - and front desk staff don't care enough to provide service levels to compensate. There are also HORDES of children which is fine if yours is one of them. Not so pleasant if not. The walk to the beach takes so long...

Beautiful surroundings and views . We had a Pleasant stay. It was bit noisy, on one evening because our group had a loud party , on the lawn outside our window.But it was amazing to see the views in the next morning and there was not one trace of the party, in the morning.

Do not drive cars other than high end cars to this resort because the valet will not acknowledge you when you arrive. Very disappointing at first impression that management would condone this attitude toward resort guests.

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!

I don't know where to start. Monarch is something else. The service is impeccable, the food is great, the room was very peaceful and quiet. 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...

Excellent service,best banquet food I've ever had , beautiful setting. Only inconvenience was that the ATM was out of service and I needed to go off property to get cash. I had several guests come and visit me and told them to put valet charges on my room. The charges were not posted and I liked that feature. Staff was...
