Attention to detail is around every corner...along with the pretentiousness and huge pockets of OC. Nice place for lunch or a professional photo shoot, with nice sunsets...but too far walk from the beach, for my taste

Monarch Beach is a first rate hotel resort and the location is fantastic. The accommodations are just outstanding. Several choices on site for dining. Pool and facilities are very well maintained with a staff that is accommodating but not overly intrusive. Only knock is that it does not sit on the beach. A short walk or shuttle is provided.

Whether you're visiting the St. Regis with family or on a couple's get-away, there is something for you! The community areas are bustling with people of all ages. The pools have great views and the fountain at the main pool is large enough to provide a nice sound that adds to the ambiance. I like that there are magazines available...
