Fodor's Review

Grand and sprawling, the St. Regis can satisfy your every whim with its 172 acres of grounds, private beach club, 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Jr.–designed golf course, three swimming pools, and tennis courts. Rooms have views of either the golf course or the lush landscaping, and all have balconies to take advantage of the ocean breezes. The premier restaurant is Stonehill Tavern, which serves celebrated San Francisco chef Michael Mina's modern, seasonally-influenced

dishes. The restaurant's wine selection is among the best along the coast, and the service is top-notch. For casual dining on the beach, check out the Monarch Bay Club, reached by a short tram ride.
