Upon arrival we found it difficult to park for registration and check in. You can park on the Pacific Coast Highway or take your chances parking under the building (not clear what you should do). Make sure you park under the right building or you will have to move your car. After registering we met with the concierge and were... More

Having read these reviews in advance we were prepared for a bad time but actually made the most of our stay though it's unlikely we would ever come here again. Convenient to a (long walk) to Dana point beaches (Doheny Park) or drive to nice restaurant town of San Clemente, this place is basically in the middle of nowhere except... More

We are Diamond Gold owners and booked a week here, we were excited as it was on the ocean. We were concerned about the traffic noise and the noise from the Amtrak that we had read about on here, but the Amtrak was no problem at all. The traffic was noisy but at night it quieted.We were surprised when we... More

We had a good time and enjoyed our stay at this location. The unit was clean and stocked, and offered a beautiful ocean view. There is a lot of noise from the highway and the train that separate the units from the ocean. The staff was friendly, even the three who spend two hours attemoting to get us to buy... More

We are very disappointed.WE had made our reservation 6 months ahead of time and they gave us a room with a balcony facing the sewer waters, fleas and bad smell. After several requests they changed the room next day. The blanket was torn all the feathers and wool flying out. I left my gold ring in the bedroom and it... More

This is my third or fourth visit to this resort. I have found this resort to be an ideal location for myself as I love jogging and being outside. The beach across the street is not that great however within 5 to 10 minutes you can drive to Dana Point or Laguna which has beautiful beaches or you can drive... More

While, Yes it is loud due to location on Pacific Coast Highway (traffic and train noise), the resort is in an awesome location, right across from the ocean. There is a Mexican, Italian, Sushi, and Sports bar within a short walking distance. The large pool has a hot tub and is extremely clean..but I do wonder if the locals access... More

This is an older roadside motel built in the 1980s, who in my opinion, is trying to pass themselves off as a resort. The "accident waiting to happen," is the swimming pool directly in front of the lobby. There is absolutely no way I would spend any time in that pool, nor allow my kids to spend time in that... More

I have stayed at this timeshare before and enjoyed the location and amenities, but this one night stay was a huge disappointment. We had a two bedroom, but only one car was allowed to park in the garage underneath the building; the other car had to park on the street or in the overflow lot about a block and a... More

We assure you that we take every all constructive comments seriously, and have begun taking the appropriate steps to correct the issues described by you. While it is true that several of our rooms do need updating, we should never have a room that does not meet cleanliness and functionality standards. We have passed your concerns to our housekeeping and... More

We got our dates we wanted and then our son could not find a house at that time for our family reunion. He finally got a nice big house. But,it was a week earlier. I called Riviera hoping we could change our date. To our surprise they were able to get us in a week earlier. No hassles,no extra money.... More
