Cabana was great, perfect idea for a birthday
My friend and I reserved a day bed on a Sunday. We arrived at the hotel at 9am when the pool opened. Resort staff was very friendly and helpful. The day bed was perfect for two people. We ate brunch at the hotel and the food was amazing. We also indulged in the unlimited mimosas for $20. They even let us take our last mimosa back down to the pool. In the afternoon we had chips and salsa at the pool along with amazing jalapeno margaritas. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and would recommend it to anyone for a daycation!
Very nice property. Pool/jacuzzis and cabanas were extremely nice and wasn’t too crowded. Checked into our cabana and the lady said a server would be right with us, no one ever came just had to go up and order. Food and drinks are pricey but expected at this nice of a hotel.
We had SO much fun at Monarch!!! A friend and I just came to use the spa and it was incredible. So clean and there are always attendants making sure the locker areas are pristine. We used the pool all day which is its own private spa pool separate from the hotel pool—it was so refreshing, relaxing, and quiet. We took a free yoga class in the morning which totally made our day! The instructor was awesome. This place is such a tranquil retreat, I can’t wait to come back.
The hotel was gorgeous and the service superb! Several times during the day they served small glasses of fruit juice. The food was delicious, too.
Service, pool, comfort, everything was great.
We really enjoy this resort. Pool manager is friendly and professional. Kids loved the kid friendly pool. Food and drinks were also well done.
The facility and amentities were awesome. I attended for a girls day and the spa pool was great to just relax at all day. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Very nice facility. The only thing that could have used some improvement was the food at the spa cafe. It was very bland and mediocre at best, over priced in my opinion for the quality.
We decided to organize a girls day since many of our friends had big changes recently and we wanted a chance to get together and celebrate. The Mirival Spa at the Monarch Beach Resort was the perfect place. The staff was great. Check in was a breeze. We took part in a floating meditation class that was wonderful. We took full advantage of the pool for hours and hours. The spa cafe had delicious options for lunch. We walked around in our robes, ate, gossiped, took advantage of the spa amenities. Unfortunately we didn’t pay the $200+ for a treatment but everything else was wonderful. We are definitely going to do this again.
The pool was clean, the staff was great. The food was good and the drinks were delicious. We booked the day bed and it was great! It was quiet, peaceful and serene.
Loved spending the day here. Beautiful hotel, excellent service, and perefectly heated pools.
We had a wonderful day at the Monarch. The service was outstanding. The good excellent. The cabana was great and the fruit bowl was awesome. The pool was beautiful as well!
This was an absolutely amazing day. My friend and I went to relax by the pool and take some cool pictures and it was the perfect place for both! The day was pretty cloudy and we still had an amazing time. Definitely go for the spa pass (since it costs the same).
Great experience! Enjoyed the spa facilities, food and bubbles!
Had a great, relaxing spa day at Monarch Beach Resort! We enjoyed the spa facilities, relaxed by the pool and ordered food and champagne. Thank you for the opportunity its to purchase this great experience day!
The hotel is absolutely beautiful, the staff are friendly, helpful, and polite. We ordered lunch and had a cabana for the day. I will definitely return again.
The pools and tubs at Monarch are great. My daughter had a wonderful time and found kids her age to play with. And we lucked out with a beautiful sunny day.
Pools, hot tubs and food/beverage service was great. Weather not so much but will try the resort pass again on a better day.
Breautiful resort, amenities were top notch. I took my daughter and her friends for the day to celebrate her birthday and we had a great time!! Can’t wait to come back!
Had a great day poolside with our kids while our husbands played golf. Drinks and food were great. Perfect staycation day!
Great Experience, booked 2 more cabanas for my birthday in April!
Would definitely go back and use ResortPass.
Nice resort. Very easy to check in. Pool was very nice with water slides.
My mom and I had an amazing day at the Monarch Beach. The spa staff was so helpful, and the facilities were great. The spa pool was under construction during our visit, so we got access to the main resort pool instead. It has infinity hot tubs overlooking the ocean. It doesn’t get much better!
Fabulous resort! Service and cabana were wonderful! The beach and grounds are spectacular. Our only complaint was the pool temperature was on the cold side.
Incredible time at Monarch beach! The spa facilities were top notch, and very relaxing. Then spent the rest of the afternoon at the pool with the most beautiful view. I will definitely be coming back and spreading the word to all my friends!
Majestic resort, excellent service had a fantastic day !
great views great service
We stayed in a condo which did not offer a community pool or hot tub. The resort pass was a great way to enjoy a day of swimming but still stay in the condo of our choice. Thanks, Resort Pass, for making this possible for our family!
All the employees are so nice. The place is beautiful and the spa is awesome.
From start to finish this place was like a day in paradise. When we arrived we were greeted with smiles and friendly staff to help get our day started. We loved our daybed and hanging out by the pool...The staff at the pool came frequently checking to see if anything was needed. The food and drinks were good and reasonably priced. I cant wait to go back!!!
We spent the afternoon at the pool and it was very nice and quiet!
Wonderful day, so peaceful. Looking forward to our next girls day! The service was phenomenal
Amazing resort and service. Very family friendly. My 2 and 4 year old loved it!
The pool cabana, the service, the food, the view and the day was fabulous! Well worth it!
The pool area was very nice. The food was well presented and was very tasty. The poolside staff was accommodating.
It was beautiful. Perfect getaway for us both. Had the cabana, spa, and massages throughout the day. Everything was seamless!
Monarch Beach Resort was impressive. The pool and views were beautiful, one of a kind sunsets from the jacuzzi with the horizon light up! A day of relaxation and experience.
I took my friend for her birthday. It was a fabulous spa and beautiful resort. We felt pampered. We said this needs to become an annual tradition!
Beautiful hotel. Amazing views all the way to the ocean from the pool. We reserved a cabana and spent the whole day relaxing. Highly recommend!
So easy! Valet parking took care of our car, we went to the concierge desk for check-in and we got a hotel card which gave us access to the beautiful pool area. Enjoyed our afternoon at the pool very much!
We booked a cabana at the kid's pool. It was nice and private and we could watch our kids playing right in the front. My kid's loved it.
Our experience was 5 stars! The food was fresh, the pool was stunning, and the service was top notch!
The pool was glorious. We got two cabanas for a group of 10 and it was more than enough room for all of us. We had so much fun relaxing and having fun by the pool and spa. It made for the perfect little getaway.
From the moment we arrived at Valet until we left later that afternoon our experience was perfect. Check in at the concierge desk was a breeze, getting our cabana, dining on delicious lunch along with cabana amenities were superb. The pool and view was lovely as well. Service was brisk and the staff was sharp. We would do it again when in the area.
The hotel grounds were very beautiful and staff was very attentive. I very much enjoyed the Spa experience and would do the spa and day resort pass again.
What a great way to end the craziness of a vacation with kids. The service was on point. Kids pool shallow enough for us to watch the kids from our lounge chairs. Beautiful beach area as well. Unbelievably good deal!!
We enjoyed our day pass at the Monarch Beach resort! It was heaven on earth for a day! The service was excellent, food was great and overall we had a fantastic experience.
Pool was fabulous. We ordered food and drink, food was delicious and service was wonderful. The beauty of the location was amazing.
Amazing venue, atmosphere and food. Great family staycation - we were able to share with our friends from overseas and it was magical.
The pool was clean and the ambiance was lovely. We ordered cocktails and salads, and food was delicious. They had pool toys to buy for the kids... Highly recommended!
We spent a relaxing afternoon celebrating our anniversary. Staff were friendly and helpful, service was perfect. Will definitely use resort pads again.
Really enjoyed using the day pass at this resort. Really beautiful and relaxing by the pool and hot tubs. Great service, felt like a hotel guest. Would definitely go back.
The pool was great! We had so much fun using the cabana.. wasn't totally necessary to have.. but we loved having space and shade and privacy! The service was amazing.. and food and drinks were decent.. definitely pricey but you expect that. We had a relaxing day! Will definitely do it again!
it was a perfect place for a day off! the staffs were really nice. just don't go during wedding season, they wont let you take pictures at some parts at the resort.
The resort has beautiful views and excellent service. We booked a daybed with a canopy near the pool. Note that the resort draws several families, so the pool and jacuzzi areas will have children.
Great experience. I would def. do again.
Service was great, a little slow but it was pool side and staff was friendly.
Great experience. Great service.
One of my best college friends flew in to spend the weekend with me here in OC so I booked a day bed. I'd never used Resort Pass and was pleasantly surprised by how simple the was to make the arrangements on the site and then how smoothly everything went upon arrival at a Monarch. We were able to pick the location of our daybed and the staff set it up beautifully. We spent the afternoon relaxing and enjoying the facilities, including the poolside restaurant and bar. I will definitely be using Resort Pass again in Orange County for fun and relaxing daycations.
The resort with its service was excellent. I look forward for many future visits.
An awesome day spent in the sun, enjoying the ambiance of Monarch's pool and jaccuzi. Valet, Concierge, Pool Attendants and Pool Food service all gave over the top excellent service. We will definitely be back.
Rented a cabana at the kid pool for a super fun family day. Ordered delicious drinks, great food, and excellent service. Will definitely be coming back.
The most amazing resort experience. You'll feel like royalty. The friendliest staff and SO many things to do: pool, spa, beach, dining and shopping!
We had a great experience at this resort. The property is beautiful and the customer service was excellent! The pool food was amazing and my daughter and I had a lovely day. If felt just like a hotel guest!
I loved the experience of using resort pass at Monarch Beach Resort. It was a great getaway and so enjoyable to be able to use the resort facilities without staying at the property. The service was excellent and I felt like a hotel guest! I would recommend this experience to anyone!
The spa was fantastic. Wonderful staff, very welcoming! My friend and I purchased a daybed at the pool as well, which was very comfortable. My friend I loved the pool, although there were a lot of families with small children. We ordered food and drinks, which were great! We also used the spa, which was very relaxing and a great way to finish the day.
This is a beautiful resort with 2 pools and 3 hot tubs! We loved the family pool area, but used both pools and areas. There are also fun lawn games for the kids. Even the poolside service was excellent!
I had an amazing day with my girlfriend celebrating our birthdays ! We had drinks by the pool, lunch and enjoyed the gym classes including the TRX and yoga class. I love the view and highly recommend using resortpass.
Loved the kiddie pool with my 5month old. The water temperature was perfect and the fruit bowl they give you is huge! I would come back again.
Simply perfect from beginning to end. This beautiful resort was the ideal place to relax with girlfriends overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The food was delicious, service was friendly and the pool area was so classy. The afternoon rounded out perfectly when valet parking was free. I would highly recommend.
We took the kids to celebrate my husbands and my 15th wedding anniversary. The pool was amazing and we reserved a cabana which had a tv for the kids to watch when they wanted to St out of the sun. We only planned to go for a few hours and ended up staying all day!! Highly recommend!!
Monarch Beach Resort was as beautiful as we hoped. Great view from the pool and beach was lovely. In addition to the main pool there is kid pool that you can walk into with no steps and a splash pad. Beach has chairs, umbrellas, towels and toddler sand toys provided at no cost. Only negative was the the restaurant down at the beach will not serve drinks/food to resort pass holders (only guests), which was a disappointment. The valet experience was free and could not have been easier. For folks with toddlers the tram ride down to the beach was high point of the day. My kiddo did get stung by a bee on the beach so watch for that.
I honestly don't know why someone didn't think of this sooner...or why every hotel does not participate in this program. It is such an awesome solution to be able to enjoy beautiful resort amenities, such as pools, spas, etc., without having to purchase a room. I recently purchased a cabana at Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, CA for my sister's birthday and it was such an awesome day! I only live 30 minutes from the resort, so there was no reason to purchase a room, but I was more than happy to pay a small fee to have access to the resort's pool. I can't wait to use ResortPass for other hotel in my area. In fact, I'll probably use it again this weekend!
I had such an amazing time! The Monarch Beach resort was the perfect destination for a "day-cation". The Spa was the perfect way to start the day. They had an amazing facility and little cafe to grab a quick and healthy lunch. The main pool overlooked the ocean and was the perfect way to spend the afternoon in the sun and reading a good book! I left feeling energized and refreshed to take on the week!
Took my boyfriend for his birthday and we had the best day! It was so relaxing and a beautiful view! We reserved a day bed and ordered food and drinks. I'm already planning to take my friend here for her birthday!!
Absolutely amazing experience, felt like a hotel guest...
Hotel facilities was awesome! Pool was great but can be crowded. Very good drinks, food was alright.
Pool was beautiful overlooking the ocean, we stayed in a cabana and had great food and impeccable service!! Valet was complimentary!! The resort itself is gorgeous, great day!!
We had a great experience using the Resort Pass service. Hotel staff was great, Serving staff was great and the facility was the best! Totally worth the cost. Food and drink cost were what we expecting due to the caliber of the facility and loved that we were able to use the hotel facilities as if we were staying overnight at the hotel. They even recharged my electric vehicle at no additional cost.
Six girlfriends rented a cabana poolside at the Monarch hotel. We had an absolute blast. The pool, the views, the service, the food, the drinks...it was all perfect.Can't wait to do it again!
I came here about two months ago and loved it so much I came back this past weekend with two friends. We thought the spa pool was very relaxing. We dined at AVEO because in-room dining at the pool was not available. It would have been nice to have lunch out by the pool. We used the sauna and steam rooms along with lounge rooms. We loved the decor and overall zen vibe of this spa.
The employees were incredible. Very helpful
Ordered food and drinks by the pool. Had a nice daycation.
Highly recommend daycation at this resort. Professional and service-oriented staff, beautiful resort, well maintained facilities. The spa pool is quiet and enjoyable.
The kiddie pool at Monarch beach with splash pad is amazingly fun! The kids could walk right in and turn the splash pad on themselves. There was a hot tub on their side too. The water wasn't too deep and the facility was clean. The cabanas were nice, the water great. Pool service is as good as it gets. Overall we had a great time!
The view when you walk into the lobby was breathtaking; ocean view from pool was amazing. The service from was exceptional, everyone working there was SO nice! The spa was equipped with an amazing waterfall jacuzzi, two saunas, a steamroom, a lounge where you could literally take a nap, treatment rooms, a gym, private pool and so much more. We had to pinch ourselves! Will definitely be back.
The spa pool was quiet and relaxing. We really enjoyed taking the tram to the beach. Overall an awesome experience.
I reserved the cabana as a surprise for my husband on our anniversary. It was a shaky start. The concierge was not there to check us in when we arrived. The pool staff were not expecting us when we arrived at the pool (their computers were down). There was confusion about what cabana to put us in. We had to ask several times for the fruit bowl and ultimately it was over 2 hours before anyone came around to check on us. After that, things seemed to settle in. The pool was beautiful (not quiet like the sign says, but that didn't bother us). The jacuzzis have a beautiful view of the ocean. We ordered lunch and it was very good. The resort seemed a little runned down from of our memory of it in the past. But the day was peaceful and ultimately, a nice day away.
Beautiful decor and plentiful amenities. Loved how there were brushes, razors and other readily available disposables.
We enjoyed a great day! Living local and with a toddler we sometimes would prefer to just go home at the end of the day. This was perfect for us.
Wonderful relaxing experience
Everything from check in to my day bed experience was amazing. The pool attendents were so on top of it. We ordered food from Sombra and it was very tasty along with our cocktails. Beautiful view to top it off! Will defiantly be going back.
Enjoyed the cabana, pool and food
Had a nice healthy spa lunch and a relaxing day at a peaceful spa pool
All staff was super professional and the facilities were extremely clean. Very quiet, we felt like we were the only guests for most of the day!
The pool and Jacuzzi were great. We ordered food and drinks and the staff was really nice.
Overall a fantastic experience. The pools are very nice and well maintained. The pool bar charged us for champagne we didn't have but management started to look into it as soon as we brought it to their attention. The Spa facilities are quite nice. The staff are extremely helpful and considerate. Well done.
The cabana we reserved was awesome, complete with bottled water, ceiling fan, TV, fruit, couch and chair swing. It felt more like a room than a cabana, perfect to cool down or nap. Nice chaise lounges in front and the pool, spa and view were perfect. Good service, drinks were fresh and reasonably strong. Food ordered for lunch was tasty. Bathrooms were nice but could have been cleaner at the end of the day. The cabanas do have a folding wall in between to connect two side by side. The downside of this is that you don't have much privacy from your neighbors conversation, which was a small issue as the lady next to us had a really foul mouth and would talk on her phone loudly. Definitely not stuff I would have wanted my kids to hear. Not the resort's fault at all. There is a kids pool and there are cabanas there if you want to be in that section. We were a group of 4 adults so being by the "quiet pool" was nice. Overall would absolutely do it again, truly felt like a vacation day away, with only a short drive and free valet parking.
We had a great time at the resort. We rented a cabana for the three of us which was secluded and relaxing. The pool was heated and not busy. The infinity-edge whirlpools had a beautiful view of the ocean and the botanical garden below. Service was exceptional all day and the drinks kept us refreshed. The food from the pool restaurant is slightly overpriced (expected), but was ok. Overall no complaints about our day and definitely would book through resortpass again!
We really enjoyed staying at Monarch Beach Resort. it was so nice! The pool area was spacious and the location perfect! I would definitely stay here again!
This is my second time booking a Day Pass through Resort Pass for Monarch Beach Resort. I first came with my husband and then with my sister for Mother's Day. The Concierge desk is always super friendly and accommodating and treat you like you are a true guest of the hotel. The service is top notch and the poolside drinks and food are delicious. Ask for Gustavo when you are ordering poolside! He goes above and beyond to make your day fabulous. I will keep coming back when I need a day of relaxation. It is definitely worth the price.
Pool and hot tub were awesome. Views were amazing and the staff was very accommodating. I had the red sangria which was very strong. They adjusted it for me with a bit more juice and it was fine. We ate at the golf course which was very good. We wanted to eat at the beach restaurant but were told that it was only for resort guests!
This is a beautiful resort and the pool area is quite nice. Service is excellent and the drinks were very good. We were only disappointed in the fact that no locker facilities were available to us on the day pass. We had to use a restroom to change into and out of our bathing suits.
We checked in (at the concierge, not the check-in desk) and they provided a key to get into the pool. I was a little worried that we would get a slightly different service experience, but everyone was very nice and I didn't get the impression we were treated any differently than an overnight guest. We ordered food and drinks by the pool and everything worked out great. It was a very nice experience with a beautiful resort and we are looking forward to doing it again soon.
The service overall was superb including bar services.<br><br> I used the spa and got a massage and it was close to perfection.<br><br> It was definitely worthy of the money I spent.
Beautiful accommodations with great service and staff. Would definitely go back!
If you are local to the OC area, but can't afford to actually stay at an incredible resort like this one (hello, me!), then this day pass is a perfect option! We booked online just the day before, and headed down around 10 the morning of our reservation. We pulled up to the hotel and valeted our car, then entered into the beautiful lobby to get checked in. The concierge was incredibly friendly and genuinely seemed like he enjoyed what he did. <br><br> We followed the path down to the pool area, and arrived to the "quiet pool" around 10:15am. When we got there, it was pretty empty, with only a scattering of other people who had arrived. Since this is the quiet pool, the staff had asked some kids who were playing Marco Polo to be more quiet, or to use the other pool. We saw them do this a couple of times throughout the morning (which as a group who didn't have small kids, was super nice!), but as it got busier, they stopped doing this. There ended up being small kids behind us, and a group of kids splashing around us in the pool. Not the worst. The chairs were so soft and comfortable, the staff was awesome, and were always willing to grab whatever we needed or adjust our umbrellas. The food and drinks were good, nothing too special, but delicious and convenient. I couldn't get over how beautiful the view was. It was a wonderful experience, and I will definitely be going back!
The hotel and pool are beautiful. The food and beverages were delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
This is an amazing resort and we had a great daycation. Would do it again in a heartbeat, hopefully soon! Awesome value for money.
This was the perfect daycation. We had the best service the whole day and look forward to taking a day in the sun again really soon.
I had the most wonderful birthday relaxing poolside at the main pool. Everything was perfect!! One of the most gorgeous resorts in Southern Cal. I can't wait to go back!
We spent our morning and afternoon at the adult pool lounging on Margaritas and sun. In between we had a great workout at gym and many laps in a warm pool. We watched the sunset from one of the infinity hot tubs. Service was perfect and we were provided food, drink, towels and lotion with a well selected staff that were attentive, well spoken and knowledgeable of the menu and drinks. It was a fantastic day at a very beautiful and friendly place.
Amazing day! Service was outstanding place was luxurious! Food was very good, drinks were strong! What more can you ask for?!
The ladies Spa was so great! All the amenities that came with the pass, I couldn't even use them all! Everyone was nice and the spa was so clean!
