Amazing. Phenomenol. Outstanding . Three words that barely touch on the real meaning of what a sensational 5 days we spent here. From the minute we pulled up in our car and were greeted by name to the minute we left there aren't enough adjectives to describe how fabulous the service and accommodations and the food are. We booked on...

We stayed here in April to celebrate grandma's birthday. The hotel ground and room are fantastic and very well kept - our room was spotless. But what makes this property truly amazing is their 5 star staff, from Andrew at Valet all the way to Jacqueline at the coffee place and Anthony at the front desk. Any member of the...

We returned to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary, and the resort was just as we remembered it and then some. Our first stay was a gift from my sister-in-law, and this time we booked a St. Regis suite that included the butler service, and we were extremely happy with Giuliana, Steven, and Benjy who took care of us throughout our...

Staff, Service, Food and Amenities all come together in what was a wonderful week. The pool area is clean and well staffed. The Monarch Beach club has great food, friendly service and provides a perfect place to see a sunset.

My sister and I took my mother to the Spa Gaucin for her birthday. What a wonderful experience we had! I must give a shout out to Jenevieve who went out of her way to make our day extra special. I have been to several high end spas, and this one is incomparable.

The hotel is walking distance from the beach by way of some private and public trails. It's a great way to start the morning or end the day with a brisk morning walk or a calming sunset jaunt. The hotel is beautifully designed and the rooms are quite large by today's standards. The furnishings are efficient but nothing special for...

This is a five star hotel. Truly. It was all very expensive, perhaps 2.0 or 2.5 times what you normally expect to pay for a room, or a glass of wine, or a salad. But the service was extraordinary without being obsequious (which I really dislike); no-one was subservient, just open, friendly and helpful. We were there for four days,...
