THE THING WITH BEACHING IT, and being near the waves, and gazing at the Pacific, and decamping to a destination that's quite close to the ocean's edge, is this: You're pretty darn loathe to give that all up, at least in short order. You'd prefer, if possibly, many hours, or preferably a few days, of ocean-adjacent basking, and all of the relaxing that comes with that particularly pleasant location. Making a particularly pleasant location even more pleasant? When there is a well-known resort there, one that is rife with all of the sophisticated luxuries and easy-going details that fit a beach-close getaway. Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point is just such a place, and upping the general air of pleasant-a-tude is the offer it currently has on through June 17, 2018: Book a stay "throughout the summer" and you'll get a third night for free. That's right: The whole loathing-to-leave part tapers off when you know that your last day of vacay is on the house, or, rather, hotel.
BUT JUNE 17... is definitely the day to book by, even if you intend to stay in July and August. And wanting to call upon the elegant resort may grow even more intense once you learn of the other add-in to the 3rd Night Free deal: A resort credit worth $250. That's pretty sweet stuff, as is deciding how you'll spend your days there. You can try out stand-up paddleboarding at the Private Beach Club, join a fitness class (there are over 40 each week and they're all free), or dine at the Monarch Bay Club. And might you have a sighting of the Monarch Mermaid? You might, so definitely tell the kids so they can meet this popular local. Rates begin at $499, so read all now before planning your summer-beach stay at one of Orange County's beach-bliss-iest properties.
