    Monarch Beach Resort
    Dana Point, CA
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3121 reviewsTripAdvisor (3121)
    Free WiFi
    Formerly a St. Regis property, guests can't stop raving about how beautiful the Monarch Beach Resort is. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Monarch Beach – about 60 miles southeast of Los Angeles – this resort caters to perfectionists. The grounds are well-manicured, the decor is both lavish, comfortable and up-to-date (accommodations were renovated in summer 2015), and the resort has a private beach. What more could you ask for? Well, you can also indulge at the handful of on-site eateries, swing a golf club in view of the Pacific Ocean or treat yourself to a decadent massage or sugar scrub at the Miraval Spa. Families love the wide range of activities for children, ranging from treasure hunts to the kids club to babysitting services. And previous visitors say the steep price is worthwhile and that the resort's staff deserves the highest praise.

    Like its sister properties, The Lodge at Pebble Beach and Casa Palmero, the Inn at Spanish Bay caters mostly to avid golfers and luxury travelers. Guests praise the staff for their exceptional service and friendly dispositions. The rooms, many of which face the ocean, are spacious, with flat-screen TVs, complimentary internet access and minibars – some accommodations even come with fireplaces and balconies. There are many restaurants and bars that reside in the Pebble Beach complex, but Pèppoli and Roy's are the true culinary standouts.

Located along 17-Mile Drive, closer to Monterey than Pebble Beach, the hotel allows guests to enjoy easy access to all the shops and eateries near Cannery Row.

    Cache Creek Casino Resort

    About 40 miles west of Sacramento, Cache Creek Casino offers an exciting yet relaxing time away from the city. In relative isolation, guests are left to their own vices — oh, we mean "devices." Although many visitors note that the drive to Cache Creek is a memorable one, it's the friendly customer service and stylish digs that left a lasting impression. Accommodations here are outfitted with 47-inch flat-screen TVs, iHome stereo systems and Keurig coffee makers. And the decor rings well with visitors: a gray and cream color palette is offset by bright pops of yellow and red. Of course, guests will have access to Cache Creek's extensive gambling opportunities such as slots and card tables, but guests appreciate being able to take advantage of Cache Creek's natural setting as well. The property boasts easy access to nearby golf courses and whitewater rafting sites, not to mention its own full-service spa and expansive outdoor pool. And when hunger strikes, travelers can choose to dine at any of eight in-house eateries.
