Great experience with the Monarch. No question that this is an expensive place to stay - but what is the going rate for great memories? FYI - Giuliana at Aveo Restaurant was super nice and went out of her way to help us find the best places to visit in Southern California! Spa

Is the pool heated? Also, are there any kids activities during the Christmas break?
Wonderfully heated! My kids were so comfortable in there. Check with concierge about kid's activities. There is a kid's club. The beach + pool combination is prettty awesome for traveling with kids.

Planning to stay a couple of days towards the end of December at this resort. I am flying into SNA from Seattle. Not sure how frequently Uber is used over there especially at the airport pick up point and how central the resort is. Would appreciate recommendations on transportation such as rental car versus using Uber or just the resorts shuttle service or Texis...
Thank you for your question. Our concierge would be delighted to assist you in finding the best transportation options for your trip. We can be reached at 949-234-3271.

If budget is not an issue, how many days is a good enough time to enjoy it without running out if things to do? Thank you
If you are only planning on visiting the resort, we recommend a stay of at least 3 nights. We have over 100 activities weekly including spa, fitness, private beach club, golf and award-winning dining. If you would like to experience the surrounding area, up to a week is recommended.

"Ask for room 261"
"If possible get office facing"
"The pool/ocean/hotel view is absolutely beautiful! Worth an upgrade!"
"We liked facing the pool, as we could enjoy the Happy Hour entertainment on the Upper Terrace and watch the sun go down."
"Halls can be very long in order to maximize views... ask for one closer to elevator or enjoy the walk."
