“Best view”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Relaxed and wonderful local plants surrounds the cottages at the Montage Laguna Beach.
The beach is a few steps down, the view over the water is incredible.
What a great spot to have a weekend to enjoy.

Room Tip: Pick room with the view

Montage is a great place to relax and refresh. The spa is the best one I have ever visited. The beach view is incredible. Great staff that takes care of your every need. The restaurants have a variety of farm to fresh menu items with delicious food. There was a particular menu item that I enjoyed, the chef came out and walked me through exactly how he made and wrote the recipe down. This place is a great treat.

Room Tip: Must get a beach view on about the 4th floor.

Honestly, I don't understand what all the fuss is about. Every time I am here I feel a little out of place. The decor in the hotel seems a little outdated and stiff for being a beach resort. I feel that the staff seems to act a little prude or arrogant as well. I have stayed here just once but have dined here often and just never feel that the staff is where it should be. The rooms could use a remodel(there were stains on the upholstery of the sofa) and although they consider some rooms to be an "ocean view" you could honestly barely get a glimpse of anything blue. The layout of the resort is very difficult to navigate as well and it is nearly impossible to find someone to help you find your way. Although the quality of food is great, it is just overpriced and served with several flaws.

Room Tip: Make sure to specify how much of an ocean view you actually get.

Had the chance to stay there this weekend with a dear friend and truly enjoyed my time at the Montage.

Every single staff member encountered was wonderful and seemed happy to be working at the hotel. We had dinner at Loft and breakfast there both days. The food was great but like pretty much everything on the property, comes at a steep price. $8 for a cup of black coffee, or $21 for two eggs with some potatoes and bacon is a little bit out of control, especially when the ocean view room is $1195 + tax. The spa while top notch both in terms of quality of the treatments and staff is also pricey, with massages starting at $235 + 20% gratuity for 60 minutes.

You can't beat the location and it was wonderful to sleep with the window open and hear the ocean. Please note that the pain pool is very "kid friendly" so if you want a little bit of peace and quiet, head over to the "adult" pool which is by the spa. They might require you to have a treatment booked to use it, but if it's a quiet day you might be fine. Food and drinks were good though their selection of Rosé wine by the glass was pretty poor.

Valet was great and they can charge your electric car with 240V. (Tesla supercharger is also about 15 minutes away).

Would I return? Of course I would, just let me call my credit card company to get my limit raised.

Room Tip: I enjoyed my room, #467

When you stay at a 5 star property, the expectations are naturally (and appropriately) very high. Generally, luxury comes at a price. The Montage is a rather expensive place, but if it is luxury and pampering you are willing to pay for, this place is one of the best. What stands out for me is the quality of the staff. Every interaction with staff, whether front desk, restaurant, pool service, valet or fitness center, you are treated as if you are the only guest they have to worry about. If every interaction with guest is a "moment of truth", in my view the staff at Montage is about the best I've encountered. My third time visiting on business and I look forward to returning soon.

We went for 2 nights and had a fantastic relaxing time!! Our room was beautiful (ocean View),the bed comfy and the bathroom was large! The service from the valets, waiters, front desk and pool staff was terrific and food yummy we ate breakfast inside and ate at the restaurant by the pool!
Highly recommend the Guacamole, Ceviche and Turkey Burger.

By far leagues away from any other hotel I've stayed at. Compares to 4 Seasons or Mandarin in terms of hotel service and quality. Rooms are beautiful and well appointed. The room service staff and food is beyond your typical "hotel food". It was a 5 star in room dining experience. Breakfast and dinner both. Rooms are spacious, very clean and maintained. Views of the blue pacific make the evenings truly memorable. An amazing California experience not to be missed. I was not impressed one bit by the Loft food and drink or Lobby Bar service. Those alone rate low.

Room Tip: south side building views are great.
