This is a very nice resort. It was a very good value as I saved several hundred dollars by booking through Travelzoo. The staff were extremely accommodating. The grounds were beautiful. They could use an adult pool as there were a ton of kids in both pools but I think that was because it was Easter Weekend. All in all,...

Wonderful resort for a holiday weekend in Southern California. The resort was full for the Easter holiday weekend, but the property was able to handle the crowd without feeling congested or too busy, enabling young families and couples to enjoy themselves!

My husband and I spent 4 days at the resort. The grounds are beautiful and Beach access was a gift along with great weather. The rooms are well appointed but for us could use some updating. Of course we travel all over the world and see a lot of 5 star resorts. What impressed us most was the staff. Friendly,...

My husband had an executive conference here so myself and 18 and 20 year old daughters joined him for the long Easter weekend. We had a wonderful time with an amazing room, Miravel Spa and great restaurants. My only criticism is that the pool filled area filled up and no seats were available. We ended up going to the beach...

I stayed this week at the Beautiful Monarch, it is a stunning facility and location. The check in was perfect - helpful, kind and just what I needed.

Although hotel cannot control this be very wary of the weather at this location. In March we had dense fog everyday and you could barely see the resort. If you drove 1 mile in either direction the weather was clear and beautiful. The way this resort is situated it appears fog is common problem. The room were nice but not...

Dear thereebs, Thank your for taking the time and posting your review. The marine layer is a typical occurrence along Orange County’s coastline during this time of year.

A four night stay at this hotel was probably the best trip of my lifetime. The room/bathrooms were huge with a robe, daily free filtered water and bedroom slippers. We were with a group of 600 so all of our meals were buffet/served. Every single item was delicious...leg of lamb, salmon, hamburger, etc. The bed was also delightful. I was...
