My sister and I took my mother to the Spa Gaucin for her birthday. What a wonderful experience we had! I must give a shout out to Jenevieve who went out of her way to make our day extra special. I have been to several high end spas, and this one is incomparable.

The hotel is walking distance from the beach by way of some private and public trails. It's a great way to start the morning or end the day with a brisk morning walk or a calming sunset jaunt. The hotel is beautifully designed and the rooms are quite large by today's standards. The furnishings are efficient but nothing special for...

Loved every minute of our 6 night stay. Beware though, Luxury does not come cheap!! The staff were helpful and polite, the views stunning, grounds carefully maintained, and although the beach a short tram ride away very private with wonderful food at the cafe.

My best meal was at the Stone Brewery about forty minutes away. The Stone Brewery was half the price and it was outstanding. The...

This is a five star hotel. Truly. It was all very expensive, perhaps 2.0 or 2.5 times what you normally expect to pay for a room, or a glass of wine, or a salad. But the service was extraordinary without being obsequious (which I really dislike); no-one was subservient, just open, friendly and helpful. We were there for four days,...

I recently stayed at the St Regis Monarch Beach for 10 days with a large group. The service and amenities could not have been better. The staff went out of their way to please, and they extended every imaginable courtesy to the group. The hotel and grounds are beautiful, the restaurants are fantastic, and the service is second to none....

My wife and I just completed a 10 days holiday stay at the St Regis, Monarch Beach. What a fabulous vacation! I have stayed at a number of St Regis (and other Starwood) properties and I believe this is the most beautiful, best located, most comfortable – and perhaps most importantly – the one with the best staff.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel!!! My husband and I came here March 24-29 for my husband's business trip and I tagged along since my 30th birthday was the 27th. Upon check in I casually mentioned it was my birthday that week and somehow the bartender must have overheard me because later on when we went outside...
