We spent a night here for a birthday celebration, but we are now thinking about joining as members. We're local and live in Orange County, so we know just about all of the nicer resorts and have spent the day or night at all of them. I prefer this location over the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel for overnight stays.... More

My new bride and I chose to do a stacation for our first anniversary. We were treated like gold from the minute we walked in the door. Our butler Michael (room 377) was a pleasure to meet. He went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied at all times. In addition, we locked him out of the room... More

We recently stayed at the st Regis at the end of August/beginning of September for 4 nights. We thought the hotel was really lovely, the staff couldn't be more helpful, friendly or attentive. Very impressed with the room and bathroom, both were a great size. Everywhere was immaculate . Thought the location was great and made use of the shuttle... More

The staff at the pool are very nice & give excellent customer service....BUT..the food is the worst. I ordered chicken fingers, they were disgusting. My daughter ordered the hamburger...terrible.

So I spent 3 days here back in July for a conference and it was absolutely GORGEOUS! The room was like a luxury home away from my middle class home! The bathroom has marble throughout.

This was our 5th stay at the St. Regis and I'd say it didn't disappoint! The hotel staff is the best, top of the line- five star! Everyone we interacted with during our stay was attentive, professional, respectful, and knowledgable. Check in was quick, despite numerous wedding parties and their guest checking in at the same time. Bellman was less... More

The St Regis Monarch Beach Resort leaves me speechless. Mother-in-law splurged for hubby and I to stay here for 3 nights. I could live in the bathroom alone. Comfortable and lovely. Staff amazing, friendly. I thought the atmosphere was going to be stuffy but how wrong was it. Enjoying every moment!

This hotel is very nice and the rooms (beds/linens) and bathrooms are very good. The bed is very comfortable, the linens were top quality, and the bathroom and amenities were wonderful. However, beyond the strong housekeeping staff, the hotel's staff was mediocre at best. The concierge is clueless and a bit rude, and made a reservation for a restaurant but... More

Hands down, a luscious property with a tropical feel. Classy interior, true to St Regis standards. I wont waste time and repeat what others have written about the great points of this property - two things that bugged me - a 25 dollar resort charge, I hate when they do this when your room costs 600/night, cant you roll it...
