Rated 5 out of 5 by The hotel is what I expected for a St Regis Hotel was under renovation. Staff was very accommodating in making up for the inconvience. Easier access to my auto would have been appreciated. I felt like an ATM whenever I wanted to use or have access to my car. November 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Hotel I've ever stayed at...EVER! Not only is this property absolutely breathtaking, the ENTIRE staff is what really makes this hotel stand out. From the Valet and Front desk (Thanks Ricky!) when you first arrive, to room service, tram drivers, pool staff, housekeeping, the gift shop and everyone I spoke to whenever I picked up the room phone. Everyone was super friendly, accommodating and on point. A separate 5 star review must also be said for the food and staff at Stonehill Tavern. Our server (who was dressed as a Captain since it was Halloween) really "steered" us in the right direction since we couldn't decide what to eat because everything looked so delicious. She was able to prepare us our very own tasting menu with perfect wine pairing! Definitely an experience. This property is also very LGBT friendly! Will definitely come back!! November 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great resort, but... I have stayed at the resort many times since the resort opened, but I must say I was disappointed with my latest stay. The refurbished rooms were lovely and service good, but a number of little things pointed to less than a 5 star resort. 1. I have stayed in the grand deluxe rooms previously which included butler service, however the room type no longer includes this service. Disappointing. 2. The gym and lounge used to provide almonds and dry fruit, which was nice after a workout - but no longer are they provided. 3. The new coffee machines and coffee in rooms is generic and not appealing. 4. Newspapers no longer delivered in morning to the room. 5. Garage does not allow for in and out privileges All in all the resort is great, but the current experience does not live up to the past service and amenities. October 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Birthday getaway at St. Regis My girlfriends and I had a fabulous time on our weekend getaway. The service and the amenities are excellent. From the time we got shuttled to the private beach to our time in the gorgeous swimming pool up to our Sunday brunch at Motif , we had a totally unforgettable experience. We are planning on making this a yearly tradition. September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Stay Our stay at the St. Regis was a last minute plan to celebrate the birthday of my MIL. From the moment we arrived until our check out, we had a flawless experience! Monica at check in ensured we had connecting rooms as requested. We headed to the pool where Matthew pool found us the perfect shaded shot to relax, and Nathan kept our drinks filled. At happy hour on the terrace, much to our surprise and delight, the champagne ritual was dedicated to our party. We ended our evening with dinner at motif with a beautiful sunset and an amazing dinner. The halibut was by far the best I have ever had. We really couldn't imagine our stay being any better! Thank you for making our stay and my MIL's birthday so memorable! September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent property and top notch service. My husband and I came to the st Regis monarch beach for his birthday celebration and we were so pleased. Our room was gorgeous, every employee we came in contact with was superb and seemed to know it was his birthday, and our dinner at stonehill is still being talked about. September 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Relaxing Weekend Nice clean resort....grounds were well kept, room was good size with large flat screen tv. Bathroom was huge. Food was good. Beach was beautiful. Water felt amazing. Overall a very relaxing weekend. We will definitely be back. September 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Relaxing getaway Overall, my experience was great for a relaxing getaway. It was super busy, but the service was very pleasant. Spa staff was excellent. My only suggestion is to have a sign that separates the adult and kids pool. August 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent experience! This hotel gets it! Management has clearly taken the time to provide the perfect personal touches to enhance the guest's experience as well as manage the excellent execution of these guidelines by the staff and all employees. Each and every employee was friendly and helpful. Upon making our reservation, the concierge contacted us to offer assistance. We requested several restaurant reservations which were efficiently made and a full itinerary was sent to me within a day. From the moment that we arrived on property, we were greeted by the friendly and efficient staff. The check-in was professional and executed quickly. The assistant greeted both my husband and I, which was a nice touch as so many hotels only greet one of us and ignore one of us. It seems to be the protocol in hotel check in to acknowledge only one person checking in though the reservation clearly reflects both husband and wife. The room was beautiful...great balcony, nice size bath vanity, nicely furnished, and included many appreciated amenities such as slippers, bath robes, comfortable seating, lit makeup mirror, safe, etc. Housekeeping was excellent..fresh robes laid on the bed nightly with a bottle water and chocolate. The complimentary champagne was a really nice and unexpected touch as well! The restaurants offered excellent menus and the staff greeted us by name upon arrival. The golf shop staff were friendly and the course and golf equipment was well-maintained. Nice extras including bottled water, apples, and cool towels at she end of the round were very much appreciated. We had requested a late check out which was acknowledged and confirmed at check in. We enjoy traveling often enjoy our stays at Grand Del Mar, Aviara, Pelican Hill, California but will have to say that this experience was the best we have ever experienced in our travel. We have enjoyed previous stays at St. Regis hotels including Florence and Rome last year which were nice properties but the attention and execution of detail and amenities at this property well exceed previous experiences! We will certainly be back! Thank you! August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceptional Service All needs were met and exceeded. Great customer service. July 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great experience! This resort exceeded expectations in every way. I would like to give a special thank you to Jacqueline who works in Crust and also helps out in the lobby bar. She went the extra mile and delivered excellent service always with a smile on her face. July 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceptional Property & Staff We recently stayed at the St. Regis and had a wonderful time. We have traveled to over 50 Starwood properties around the world over the last ten years and the staff at this property has to be among the best. I have never wrote a review on any of the Starwood properties but I really felt that this staff deserves to be recognized. We first spoke to Ariel on the phone to discuss a last minute change to our reservation. She was very kind and helpful. Once we arrived at the hotel Anton checked us in (he's a butler who was helping out the front desk). He was fantastic and made the check in process painless. He must be an amazing butler, so personable and professional. Lastly, our favorite bartender at the Pool Bar, Clark. He makes the best drinks, has great stories and is a joy to hang out with. We are already discussing a return trip next month. I highly recommend this hotel. It's great for a weekend getaway from LA. Thanks again to the staff that made our stay so memorable. June 29, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Noise and Room category My wife and I are both Gold members (and Westin timeshare owners). We were traveling with our 18 month old daughter. I quested a crib and a quiet room in the hotel so that my daughter could sleep uninterrupted. Unfortunately this was not the case. 1) The room ended being near the outdoor bar. We could hear the live music from 7-10PM. Needless to say my daughter could not sleep. 2) Pipe noises. Every time the upstairs room or adjacent room would take a shower or turn on the bath tub water you could hear the pipes. I'm not sensitive to pipe noise as I would expect them from time to time but this was just unacceptable. The noises woke up my daughter throughout the day and evening. 3) We booked a pool view. The view we had was literally the North tower and outdoor terrace. Yuck! There was no pool view whatsoever. All in all, I would expect the staff who assigned my room would to have the decent courtesy to respect my requests for a quiet room and at least provide us with the room category that we booked and paid for. She could have put us farther away. This was our second time here - the first time was significantly better. Unless management does something amazing to bring us back we're heading to the competition right next door. June 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Staff was Excellent The staff was excellent and the venue was perfect. June 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A few tweaks and our stay would be perfect Our in-room bar was not refilled. We had cashews the first night and they were never added back. We had 3 conditioners but no shampoo-the bottles look very similiar, maybe add a distinguishing bottle so staff can tell the difference.We walked to the beach but did not know St Regis had a lunch facility at the beach, maybe advertise more...

Rated 2 out of 5 by needs updating Was disappointed with the facility Elevator carpet dirty. Piano appeared discarded in hallway outside of gift shops blocking golf clothes display. Bed was scratched at bottom. Basically needs an update. Westin South Coast Plaza much nicer at 1/3 the price. June 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful property Kim at check in was pleasant. Bellmen, Chris ?, was friendly and did an excellent job getting us acquainted to the property and room. We did not receive turndown the second night of our stay. A housekeeping rag was left in the room from daily service. Dinner at motif was average. No bread plates on the table, ect. Stone hill was excellent! Overall property staff was very friendly and many staff members recognized that me and my husband were there to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. May 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superior service Planned a getaway for mothers day, for me and my two children. This hotel oozes class and style, but more importantly the staff is extremely helpful. Top class service, from valet to house keeping. We are definitely coming back. May 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Birthday Weekend My wife and I always stay at the Costa Mesa Resort when we travel to California, usually about 3 of 4 times a year, This time we decided to try the St Regis Monarch Bay Resort for my wife's birthday weekend. We arrived a little earlier than expect but were met by a hostess that took our info and said for us to enjoy the facilities and they would get a room ready. They said they could put us in a room now but the view was not as nice as another that would be ready a little later. We opted for the later and went and had a quick lunch on the balcony. They came and got us about an hour later and showed us our room. It was great with a great view from the 3rd floor. There were two wedding that weekend and our balcony over looked the garden and the weddings and it was so romantic. We enjoyed the private beach and had a birthday sunset dinner at the Beach Club and the service and food were excellent. We really enjoyed our time and are planning our next getaway there this summer. We are both excited and a few of our friends may join us. April 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect getaway The location, facilities, room and staff were all wonderful. It was my college son's birthday and they all made it very special. Sam at the Beach Club was a stand out. We will definitely come back. March 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mahalo Aloha, I wanted to take the time to thank you for an exceptional stay. We were delighted by the facilities and personnel. In particular I wanted to note that Richard at the concierge was thoughtful and relatable and assisted us in creating a dinner reservation best suitable for our family. He went out of his way to offer suggestions and tips knowing that we had two small children. It was great to know he understood what our requirements were. Additionally Juan at the valet was superb. He took the time to ask where we were from and speak to us about his visits to our island. Again, the personal touch was appreciated. He also spent time with us for driving directions as to what would be the best route for that time of day. As visitors we wouldn't have known to do so, and it was a great benefit. Overall we had a wonderful stay. Mahalo! March 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by stay Excellent hotel!! Prime area, everyone super nice and enjoyed the stay, like always !! February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 25th Year Anniversary When we checked in Colin asked us if we were here for a particular even and we told him it was our anniversary. he said they had already upgraded our room but offer some additional room options for a fee increase...we upgrade to a larger ocean view room and were happy we did. He also gave us butler service as a part of the upgrade and some other perks. We were very impressed with the resort condition, service level, spa and food quality. I was expecting a let down at some point and it never occurred. Colin also gave us some sparkling wine and chocolate strawberries as an anniversary gift. We also went to the beach club and had lunch and was great as well. The resort and staff delivered even more than expected! Great Job! February 1, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by ST Regis grand hotel I have always wanted to stay at this hotel well finally I made it a point to come here and I am glad I did. So when we checked in they gave us a room Upgrade room 104 the furthest room from the lobby I think it was closer to LAX then the lobby (just kidding). When we went out to Dinner at there number one restaurant at 8pm it was open but empty and when we went in there no staff and no customers OK maybe it was a slow night. So we went downstairs to the Motif and had dinner there I think the Chef had a great deal on Salt because everything we had was real salty but the Service was so outstanding we did not say anything. This hotel in all fairness is real grand and the service was outstanding but i think the St Regis hotel is always held to a higher slandered and for that reason I can only give it 3 stars for this stay. I am looking forward to trying this hotel again. January 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kind staffs and nice room (bathroom) Very kind staffs they can remember my name, switch our room from normal view to ocean view after the first day. Breakfast is nice and the beach restaurant is nice too. January 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a Wonderful Get-Away! I recently completed a long weekend get-away at the St. Regis Monarch Beach and left completely relaxed and rejuvenated. The staff was wonderful, the spa spectacular, the food was fantastic, the golf was great, and the long walks on the property and along the beach were inspiring. Can't think of a better place to just unplug, unwind, and be pampered. January 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Change of owners and management We where regulars to this St. Regis, and would truly enjoy the comforts and added 'perks' being a monthly visitor brings. These perks are standard for a loyal frequent patron to just about any hotel one would frequent if one was to frequent it 15 to 20 visits a year for example, as we did. Perks such as waving vale fee's and additional free provisions. For example free bowl of fruit and wave pet fee's for little Yorkies, and valet fees. Any one who frequent's any hotel as often a this, its fair and reasonable to expect would graduate to such "perks" of the particular hotel they frequent - as we did too. Then in this case, enters a change of Ownership and General manager. The perks get taken away. Valet appears on bill, fruit appears on bill, and lack of responsiveness to any complaint made. The justification given "new owners and management want to charge for all things moving forward" In fairness to the staff, who are in the middle of it all, it needs to be noted that Starwood is great, and so to are the benefits of being a starwood member. however in this hotels case, the local news parer OC register reports it has been acquired by a different hotel management company in 2014. While star wood is still managing it, as a guest it is becoming clear that the new hotel management's company culture and values are being introduce. While still starwood, they do honor the minimum requirements of what being star wood they promos to honner. However it stops there. There is no benefit of being loyal under the new owner and management culture.They don't even respond to a complaint, and in our case would not remove the charge of a fruit. Why? because fruit is not part of the promise of platinum. We support Starwood and indeed went on to stay at another star wood property after this visit, however as a guest coming into the hotel, you need to understand the St. Regis expectations and brand is fading from this venue. While this mind set exists we won't be back once in 2015. However we do recommend any other star wood hotel in the area are there are many. We will still continue 3 to four times a month visit to Starwood hotels, just re-direct our money to other venues that appreciate and overly reward extra-ordinary patronage. This property is still a nice location with beautiful beaches, and the staff are good people that will stove to serve you exceptionally, however they are required to do what new management tell them to do and can't be claimed for charging ever single little thing. One last thing, we where to the resort fee that is added as an additional charge of $25 and includes use of the Spa… will no longer include use of the spa in 2015. Its an additional charge of a further $25 to the resort fee. We asked why… and to no surprise the answer "new managements instruction" January 2, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Service not up to St. Regis standards This hotel is beautiful, BUT the inconsistency in the service and friendliness is NOT up to St. Regis standards. Despite what the website says AND despite two emails directly from the butler service welcoming us, we were told upon check in that the butler service is only for suite guests, and they were, of course, unable to upgrade us to a suite. After discussing my disappointment with a manager, we were given the butler service during our stay; however we kept having to remind the staff as we were brought bills for morning coffee. A little frustrating. Also there was an incident with a concierge who clearly did NOT know what she was doing and gave us wrong information about the hotel dining. This caused a major issue at Motif; however the staff at Motif were very accommodating and friendly to us despite the concierge's mistake. This concierge was not apologetic. Overall, a nice property, overall nice staff, but definitely not the service we're used to at a St. Regis. Would likely not return because of the frustrations with these inconsistencies and a few others along the way. December 30, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed I'm currently staying at the hotel and have been really disappointed specially by the service. We were trying to find a restaurant to eat off the regular menu and not the Christmas buffet. The concierge told us to go to Club 19 where they wouldn't serve us anything else but the buffet. The service was horrible and after we began eating they proceeded to serve others off the regular menu. Not sure that is what I expect of a St Regis. Very disappointed December 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful hotel!! This hotel is amazing, it's a beautif place to relax and have a good time. December 2, 2014
