We recently spent 8 nights at the Monarch beach Resort and loved every moment of it. I had not visited the property previously but if you like fresh, coastal and beautiful interiors you will love this hotel. The stunning terrace really frames the view. If you prefer more formal, dark wooded interiors then perhaps this is not for you but I couldn't speak more highly of the lobby and bar area. The staff were fantastic, Heather and Oana on the front desk were incredibly helpful and very efficient with any requests or concerns. We loved the new pool area and the cocktails and Mexican food were perfect for hot summer days. The staff down by the ball were always very helpful and efficient. We had a few dinners at Aveo and loved the relaxed dining feel. The live music was great and really set the tone for each of the nights. We were travelling with our baby girls and hope we can return soon. It was a truly wonderful holiday!

The new décor, service and general atmosphere of this resort are excellent!
We spent the weekend at the new Monarch Beach resort and had the most relaxing, pampered experience.
We had a massage at their spa, had breakfast at their Aveo restaurant, had dinner at Stonehill Tavern and dinner at their beach front restaurant. Every single dining experience was above expectation.
The staff goes out of their way to make your stay perfect from the moment you check in to the moment to check out.
Highly recommend it.

All I have to say is wow. Just wow. The staff is so outstanding. Not to mention a giant luxurious hotel with a breathtaking private beach. If you want to go on vacation. Let me tell you. The St. Regis is where you want to be. From delicious restaurants, to waves at the beach, the St. Regis has got it all.

The second I entered the hotel a wave of relaxation came upon me, then reality hit and I had to be downstairs for a faction. Regardless of the reason for enjoying the hotel, room was large and very comfortable as the bed was comfortable, bathrooms clean and a great place to recharge after very busy days.
