The lobby is on the 5th floor and looks out over the beautiful hotel ground and the attached golf course, while the sun was setting at the end of our view. All the staff smiled, nodded and...

No confirmation was sent to us. When I eventually requested it, we discovered that the incorrect room type had been reserved for us. The staff tried hard to rectify the situation, but because of a full hotel a room change was required after one night. The new room was not available until 4;30.

Taking away the powerhouse name of St Regis might have been a risky endeavor with a recent $40 M renovation, but the new Monarch Beach Resort lives up to its new name. With a beachier vibe and relaxed atmosphere, we want to go back again already.
