Wow! First and foremost this is a beautiful resort! Never been in the area before, but I can't imagine that there is a better spot in this area. The people are amazing. In particular, Mateo and Meghan at the pool bar are outstanding. They keep their poise no matter how busy they are. They remember everybody's name. And most importantly,...

This hotel has it all with an amazing location, amenities and service! A great place for a couple of family if you want a luxurious stay in Southern California! The restaurants were excellent and service overall was as good as any hotel if I have ever stayed at!

Location is definitely beautiful- Golf course was subpar as it had just been punched and scalped before arrival. Even so it is only a par 70, has a couple of beautiful holes but the rest of it was quite average. Breakfast bar, Café and Dining experience - Café and dining experience expensive but adequate. The dining experience was extremely expensive-...

Our family enjoyed a wonderful 5 days here. Our children loved spending the day at the beach and playing in the pool. The hotel staff was great! Our rooms were well taken care of by the housekeeping staff. We used their car service into Dana Point which was handy. Also, we really appreciated Alfonso shuttling the family down to the...

We went to this resort for a couple days and enjoyed it immensely! The description of the rooms was good EXCEPT for one item. It stated there was a private beach entrance, which is true but they made it seem like it was from the room. The beach access is a 4 minute golf cart ride from the hotel, which...

If you think that you have to choose between a lovely, relaxing place for an adult getaway and a activity filled children-friendly hotel, you'll be thrilled to find that Monarch Beach Resort has the best of both. Everyone will be very happy.

From the ease and grace of the parking attendants to the helpfulness of those behind the desk to the facial and pedicure expertise, I was floating on a cloud all weekend! I would (and have) suggest this resort to everyone I know. Thank YOU!

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!
