Monarch Beach Resort is delightful. Make sure to stay at the Monarch if you are in Dana Point Area. This place is top notch. Everyone is super friendly, great food, amazing service. Can’t wait to come back!
What a great place to recharge, relax and take a few minutes to enjoy life.Sitting on the balcony of 33 Degrees North and watching the incredible sunset while sipping a gas of wine with friends was phenomenal. The rooms were great, as was the service. There are many, excellent food venues at the resort. The spa is wonderful. I cannot wait to return!
