Stayed for 5 nights. Played golf a few times as well and enjoyed it. Stayed on bottom floor with easy access to everything. Rooms are clean and quiet. Large resort and it requires lots of walking to do anything. Will come again for sure.

Played Monarch with a few golf buddies over the weekend and we had a fantastic time. The views were spectacular, the greens were fast and in great shape and the staff went above and beyond to meet our needs. Can't wait to play it again!
