I came here with my Dad on a father-daughter getaway. The service was incredible! In particular, S Saul at Motif and Kelly at the bar restaurant near the pool were incredible servers. They really made the experience excellent. I recommend this hotel for any family vacation!

Rooms were beautiful but VERY noisy. Heard workers moving stuff outside at 4:00 am. Supposed to be nicer than the Ritz next door but not hardly. Food was good, pools ok. Shuttles to beach!! 1 1/4 mile walk to beach. For the price I expected more.

Great spa and lunch outside. Had a nice workout before having jacuzzi and massage treatment. Beautiful views of adjacent golf course and ocean in the distance. There is a shuttle that takes you to the beach. It doesn't make stops every hour so pay attention to the schedule.

The St Regis Monarch Beach is the best hotel we have ever stayed at. The grounds, the rooms, the staff, the food.....but especially the staff. They don't miss a thing. Every staff member you encounter goes out of his or her way to make you feel very special. And the chefs at Motif and Stonehill Tavern are superb. There just...

Loved this beautiful bright clean hotel! The property was gorgeous and well kept. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was large bright and had a patio/balcony overlooking a beautiful view. We had a double bed room and it was plenty large enough for my 2 kids and husband and me. The staff was nice to point that we...

Dana Point is a nice place to visit to see a bit of the luxury living in the L.A. area. St Regis is a nice resort with nice rooms and great food, good service. Sure it´s fantastic if you´re a golfer but it cannot be compared to other St Regis resorts where we´ve stayed or some other resorts. It´s good...

Spent 4 nights at the hotel. Lobby is very grand where you can see the ocean. It was a bit chilly while I was there so didn't get to enjoy the pool. The room size is on the smaller side compare to US hotel rooms. However, the bed is wonderful. I love the firmness of bed and high thread count...

Honestly, I prefer the Ritz Carlton on the ocean side. The St. Regis could be so much more. To my knowledge, they don't have a program to support the local patrons business like the Ritz. My wife and I will occasionally go to the St. Regis lounge, but are not crazy about their pricing or their pours. The rooms are...

The hotel is very comfortable and private. It is relaxing. The sunday brunch is to die for, I go there just for the brunch and the view of the water. The pool is immense and the staff is very helpful. I would continue to be at the St. Regis for all of my California stays.
