Best service ever!

We reserved nine rooms over a holiday weekend to host our friends for a special event. We also hosted a dinner in one of the hotel restaurants. The attention to detail and service we received was unparalleled. We travel frequently and broadly and this experience was second to none. We will return many times in the future.

An amazing experience!

Simply amazing for the whole family. The resort was sold out for two of the five nights we were there, and we did not feel it one bit.

First class luxury without being over-the-top

Pros: Quiet
From when you pull up and are greeted by the bellmen until you depart you will be treated exceptionally. Logo ballcaps in the car at departure was a nice touch. No checking in at the desk; an associate takes you on a brief tour of the resort and then checks you in at your room - with champagne! They even got my 10 year old daughter sparkling cider. Rooms and views are magnificent. I have stayed twice and was in their regular rooms both times,and was not disappointed. The rooms are large for what I consider a standard room, the bathrooms are fabulous, and the beds are beyond comfortable. There was one icy and inattentive server in the lobby/lounge area two nights, but with all the other staff so outstanding, I still have to give it an 'Excellent' rating for Staff &Service. The staff for the kids programs were exceptional! The food was fair at the Loft both times I ate there for dinner, but I was expecting better for the price and hype. Breakfast was fabulous, though. Lite fare at the pool was good but very pricey, even for resort standards, based on my experience over many years. Great place to relax without the crowded tourism of many SoCal beaches. I have recommended The Montage Laguna Beach to many of my friends.

Eat, drink, frolic here

Pros: Close restaurants, resort amenities, 50$ food credits promo
Enjoy a glass of wine in the lobby while soaking in the ocean view & listening to piano tunes. Stroll to the beach, lap @ the spa pool, get a message, or try the sandwiches @ mosaic. You can spend the whole day here & wonder where the time melted away. Return to the room-- staff turns on jazzy music & ices your moscato-- freshen up or nap until din din @ studio. Even if late for reservations, the hostess doesn't blink an eye & goes with the flow-- so tokidoki -- you'll be seated soon. Ice wines available here. After a meal & dessert to remember... End your day by cuddling at the fire pit. For the adventurous ones, stroll on the lit beach. Ocean water chilly. chillax here. Didn't go to the loft... Next time. Excellent service & rooms so comfy you'll be late for your reservations! Lots of families with young children, but they hang by the pool area... So go to the spa one. Decent gym for cardio & some light weights. Towels, water, apples, & newspaper supplied.
