My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay! The staff was truly exceptional - very friendly, professional and hospitable - from the valets and the bell cap, to the check-in staff person and the greeter, and housekeepers and room service attendants! Really wonderful people, who really made our stay so enjoyable. Other hotels should learn from this one! The ocean view from our room was truly impressive! We will be back!

From the time we arrived to the time we checked out, we experienced superb service. Check in was easy and we were escorted to our upgraded room right after arrival. Very impressed with the quality of room. The whole weekend experienced could' have been better. Everyone we encountered was pleasant and extremely helpful: from the staff in the restaurant to the people at the pool.

Room Tip: Try to get an upper floor with a view

We have been regulars at Monarch Beach Resort for years now. We consider it our home away from home. The staff is wonderful and the property is the best. The restaurants including Aveo and Stonehill Tavern have remarkable chefs. They are very creative and the staff is second to none. Don't miss the Sunday Brunch at Aveo...it is simply the best most elaborate brunch you will every enjoy. Wonderful airy rooms with fantastic views and the pool is beautiful. Really no other place we would rather be to unwind and simply relax. Thank you Monarch Beach Resort...see you New Years!!

Room Tip: We prefer the rooms that overlook the pool but all the rooms are wonderful.

Lovely renovation to the property - top notch but need to improve the food! I think getting an executiv chef in would make it a star quality resort - the grounds, pool and access to the beach were superb!

Room Tip: I got upgraded - very spacious junior suite with balcony - nice view!

Three brothers along with their wives and kids spent the Labor Day weekend at the MBR through a deal we found online. Deal or no deal, the resort is exactly what you would expect from a high end resort and all 13 of us had a fantastic time.

BEACH – the resort is not on the beach, you can either walk 20-30 minutes down to the beach through a beautiful setting or take the free shuttle, I enjoyed both. Once at the beach there is an indoor restaurant/bar with plenty of options or a simple outdoor grill for burgers, dogs and the like. The staff will set up umbrellas, beach chairs and towels as well as loan you various types of entertainment (volleyballs, soccer balls etc.) and can rent you boogie boards and SUP’s. If you want to bring your own coolers with food and beverage, that’s another option. Most of our time was spent hanging out here.

POOLS – we only spend pool time one evening after being at the beach all day. Too tired and lazy for a real dinner, we ordered poolside service and enjoyed a night swim. It seemed pretty busy during the day but by dinner time, it was pretty quiet.

ROOMS – we had garden/pool view room with two queen beds which were very comfortable. The rooms themselves are well designed with nice décor and although the resort was at full capacity and with multiple weddings, we enjoyed the quiet the room provided.

GYM – I’m a cyclist and so I much prefer to ride outdoors, but as that wasn’t an option this trip it was nice to get my heart rate going on their peloton bikes. The gym itself was great with everything you could possible want.

SERVICE – there was a glitch with my reservations and it was a pain to get things set up, but other than that the service was fantastic across the board. Labor Day weekend was sold out and with tons of people everywhere, we were still able to enjoy great service from everyone we came across, all the employees seemed happy to be working there.

FOOD – we didn’t venture too much as our breakfasts where from the hotel coffee shop, our lunches from the beach grill and we ate out for dinner but it was nice to have these options.

SUMMARY – MBR is a great destination offering everything you could want from a nice resort. Next year I hope to play some golf and hope to bring my bike.
