The Monarch is a large yet friendly destination for couples, families or business. It ranks with the very best large resort hotels we've visited at this price level. My wife and I stayed in both a standard room and a junior suite on different visits and rate both as excellent. Our first visit, a business event, was efficiently hosted with...

Was there for a special occasion and got a formal, if not required amenity. I was disappointed by the service which I expected, given the price my host paid, to be anticipatory and welcoming It was truly underwhelming. The only saving grace were the great cocktails I enjoyed throughout the different outlets.

Came down her for a one night birthday celebration with my husband. The service was excellent and the check in process was easy. The pool service was great and everyone was so friendly. Loved the upscale feel of the resort. Thank you for making my birthday so special. Can't wait to come back.

Was here for a 3 day conference and decided to add a few days to spend with my wife. Check in was an easy process however the lady who checked us in seemed to be in training mode as others were checked in much quicker. We stayed in North Wing on 1st floor which we liked as it provided access...

Haven't stayed here since they were in the middle of renovations in December 2015. They did a fantastic job-my favorite is the children's pool. Also enjoyed having access to the beach clubhouse restaurant-we typically stay at Ritz Carlton and this is an extra plus to have access to, especially when you are traveling with small children who get hungry easily....

We stayed 5 nights just recently. Great service. We especially appreciated the kind team members. Everything we asked for was taken care of with a smile. This is my go to location now when in the Southern Cal area.

We stayed in the ocean view room. The rooms are updated and spacious. The balcony was perfect. Our view was of the golf course and we had a little bit of an ocean view.

Manny and Shane went above and beyond what I ever expected anyone to do for me in the service industry. I left my favorite pair of sun glasses at the resort; we could not locate them for a week. These two helped me to piece together that they had been left in my room; Shane actually personally brought the shades...

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.
