We have been coming here for over 20 years. We would not stay anywhere else on this island. I have stayed at multiple locations on Hilton Head and can honestly say this is hands down our favorite. Sure there have been problems in the past but the management has always been there to work through them. Parking is the number one issue right now and has been an issue ever since day one. That being said, I would still not stay anywhere else. The units are well maintained, the staff is always friendly, the beach is wonderful... It's quiet and family friendly with lots of activities throughout the week for kids.

A prerequisite for a SUCCESSFUL FAMILY VACATION in Hilton Head is a beach location. Not only is Monarch situated on a beautiful, wide beach in Sea Pines (across from the new Plantation Club and next to the also new Beach Club), its location is great for bike riding either to Harbor Town or South Beach. While this is Monarch's 30th anniversary it sure doesn't show its age as is evident by the renovations to modernize the units (spacious for a family of six) as well as the grounds. Monarch even offers a herb garden for its guests to use (its located adjacent to the fire pit - which is lit nightly). Oh, by the way, I forgot to mention there are two large ocean front pools and hot tubs. Another plus is that bikes are on property for rental - a real convenience. Monarch should be on anybody's short list if one is looking for a place that offers all the necessary attributes for a wonderful vacation memory.

We have been staying at the Monarch for the last 15 years. It is Marriott's original timeshare property and they keep it decently updated. It's not the biggest, the best, nor does it have the amenities of other Marriott locations, but it is great for a family beach vacation. The rooms we always stay in contain a master suite, a second bedroom with two twin bed and attached full bath, kitchen, and living room with a queen size pull out bed that was probably the most comfortable pull out I have ever tried. There are LCD TVs in each bedroom and the living room. The living room also has a BluRay player. The full kitchen is decently stocked with plates, cookware, utensils, etc. If you plan on grilling on one of the 5 or 6 gas grill located at the gazebo and you're using a spatula, bring your own. The only spatulas in the unit are plastic. They do provide tongs that are about 12". There are two pools, three hot tubs, shuffleboard, a gas firepit, foosball, table tennis, covered lounges away from the pools, beach showers, and a children's water play area. Bikes, beach carts and chairs are all available for rent. There is also a decent fitness center. There are activities and events each day, some are free while you are charged for others. I feel that the Monarch's location is ideal. It is located next to the Sea Pines Beach Club (which is currently undergoing a sizable renovation) and across the street from the Sea Pines Plantation Club. It also seems to be in between Coligny Plaza, Harbourtown, and South Beach.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Magnolia Building which would not be my first choice, but it wasn't bad. When transporting luggage/gear or groceries, etc. to your room, there are carts available for use. The ramps for the other buildings are easier to deal with because they are closer to the elevators. In the Magnolia building, you have to take your cart all the way up toward the lobby (which is located in the building) then bring it all the way back to the elevator.

We were lucky to get an exchange into the Monarch. The location is ideal and it's easy to get to anything in Sea Pines.
We were contacted before we arrived by a concierge who was able to tell us everything we needed to know in advance - where the markets are, (no food on premises at all) set up golf for my husband, and reviewed my list of restaurants.
The resort is 30 years old and showing its age. The corridors are dirty and dingy, and although they were power washed while we were there, it really did not help.
Our unit, however, was spacious, bright and well-equipped. The kitchen lacked nothing and it's nice to have a washer drier right in the unit.
The beach, a short flight of stairs from the pool deck, is absolutely spectacular. Stop at Walgreen's or Walmart and grab some sand chairs (they are very cheap and you can leave them for someone else when you leave - we did) and you will be all set - the beach is public and the resort charges a lot for renting chairs.
There were some activities for families at the pool around mid-day. I just plugged in my headphones and put my music up louder and was not bothered.
Hilton Head is delightful - we enjoyed a dolphin boat ride and my husband loved the golf - it was quite reasonable with the Marriott package. Most of the restaurants we went to were terrific.
Being a timeshare, there is a soft push to go to a presentation. if you decline, they do not persist.
We look forward to returning to Hilton Head and would like to try some of the other Marriott properties, but i would not hesitate to stay at the Monarch again.

we stayed on the 3rd floor of the Camelia building recently. The exterior coridor was always dirty. There was lots of dirt and spills on the walkway.
I spoke to someone at the front desk and was told, they PRESSURE WASH, ONCE A YEAR, DURING RENOVATIONS.
