This was the second year in a row we went to the Monarch Beach Resort,to celebrate my daughters birthdays. IThe pools are heated so if the weather is cooler then you like you can still enjoy them. Oh and the hotel staff is amazing. We will be going back next year!

We came to this resort many times when it was the St Regis and love the family memories made. Returning to Monarch Beach Resort was exactly what we needed to rejuvenate and relax as a family. The new renovations are beautiful. Can’t wait to return.

My company hosted a leadership offsite at the property. The weather could not have been worse, but the service was fabulous. We were very much appreciated for being there and staff all went above and beyond to make us comfortable in every way.

Typically May weather is fine, however, California beaches can be on the cool side, sometimes overcast. Overall I think you should be ok in May. Great resort!

Bring windbreakers or jackets and sweaters as sun sets early and temperature drops. Days are sunny and warm. Best on site activity is sunning on beach and swimming. You can book local whale and dolphin watching and sailing cruises!

"Pool-side view rooms are worth it. You don't get a direct view of the ocean unless you are in a suite, I am told."
"Ask for a suite. They are very accommodating."
"Ask for a pool view"
"Ask fora room with a balcony so you can enjoy your coffee with a beautiful view. "
"The hallways are very long. If you have mobility issues, ask for a room closer to the elevators. "
