We were there for only one night for a function for my husbands work. Definitely not enough time could have stayed for days. Every thing about the resort was spectacular! From the moment we arrived and checked in the service was impeccable! From Rundell with the Valet team,the front desk, then Gustavo and all the staff and the pool area,...

Our stay was relaxing and enjoyable. Our room had a great view and had all the amenities. Every person we ran into from the hotel was pleasant, friendly and helpful. From the folks at the front desk, housekeeping, pool attendants and security (we lost a room key), everyone went out of their way to greet us. It made for such...

The facility was wonderful, five star. Service was also five star. We visited all elements of the property, all five star. My complaints are tiny nits. Shower water pressure, which is a function of CA.

Good value and would go back again. The cocktails and food at Aveo Table and Bar are great. The Miraval spa is amazing. Rooms can be a long walk, but are set up for privacy and nice views. We'd definitely go back again!

Excellent resort, well located, great facilities on site and in the near by town for entertainment, eating, pubs, access to the beach. Onsite there is a 18 hole links course and a few eating options, plus a spa and pool - large lawns and open spaces means there is a lot to do on vacation and family trips.

Stayed in early March for three nights for a conference. Everything was very well done. The staff was very professional and courteous. Grounds immaculate, food good, and rooms very nice. The personalized fire pit on the first floor patio was a nice touch. Well done Monarch Beach Resort!

While this former St. Regis is one of the most beautiful resorts in Southern California, the quality of the service has decreased since dropping the St. Regis brand. Aveo, in particular, is one area that needs great improvement.

We stayed a few nights and enjoyed the spaciousness and comfort of our 6th floor room. I would've liked to be on the sunset facing area of the hotel, but our view was nice enough, plus the weather was cooperating and it was gorgeous!

Have to admit, that the hotel has lost some of its charm and sense of service with the transition away from the SPG brand. The prices have gone up, can't use your points, and the food, service, and decor aren't necessarily better. Most recently, we had our room changed twice due to noise.
