Just there with my family for two long days. Property is gorgeous. Food terrific. And the staff was just beyond, every single person, in every single way. I'm not one to rave but rave I will. I cannot recommend highly enough and can't wait to be back.

Really impressed by the friendly service provided by everyone I interacted with. Beautiful property and rooms, exceptionally well appointed. Definitely a five star resort. I only gave four stars because I called three times to notify maintenance that my hot water was taking almost 10 minutes to get warm. The issue was never rectified. It's a shame to waste all...

Just a short drive from Los Angeles yet one feels a world away! The service is on point! Beautiful grounds! The Miraval experience is exceptional!! From yoga classes, pilates, cardio drumming, all great! The treatments are not to be missed either! A lovely staycation that one should enjoy!

We loved this property when it was the St. Regis. We were a little skeptical of what the experience would be like as a non-Starwood hotel, but we shouldn't have been. The new family pool area was amazing! Service throughout the property is still top notch, except maybe the older tram driver who seemed a little grumpy. I especially appreciated...

From the moment we drove up to the moment we drove away, the service was amazing & every single person we came in contact with was wonderful! We strongly recommend this location to anyone with children too. There was not a single moment the kids weren't being entertained. We will definitely be coming back!

The room was gorgeous and the bed was so comfortable!! This room's bathroom was larger than the room we had stayed in the night before. The staff was so friendly and helpful. From check-in the check-out, we had a wonderful experience.

The group which owned Hotel Del sold it to a group from China and purchased the St Regis. They have done several renovations to the property, and the results are wonderful. From the moment you arrive, the service is outstanding. The valets, front desk, concierge, housekeeping, tram operators, wait staff are all top notch. The only parking available is valet....

I had a reservation at The Monarch last week that I cancelled one and a half days before arrival. I had called two days before to see if I could get in early as I had fallen and hurt myself and needed to get settled in my room. They told me they were fully booked and had no openings. So,...
