Just got back from a 5 night stay at this hotel. At first impression it really is pretty dated and it shows, but that being said the hotel's amenities are super convenient. It is located between Dana Point and San Clemente it has a full kitchen, clothes washer/dryer, bicycle rentals, and beach chair rentals all included. This was not only... More

This has been a go-to place to relax and just chill out for many years - but time has taken its toll on this once-lovely resort. The fan in our bathroom never worked, the sofa-bed sags so badly that we dragged the patio chairs inside to use while we watched TV, and there is zero light to read by in... More

We have stayed here for years and are witness to the decline of the furniture and facilities. The furniture is very old, stained, and uncomfortable because there is no support left. We had ants in the bathroom which I know can just be an unfortunate occurrence, but the general state of the bathroom said things are falling apart. Cabinet doors... More

I wasn't sure what to expect after reading some of the TA reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised. I have stayed here twice, in two different buildings, and both experiences were positive. The staff has always been friendly and welcoming- even coming out to the pool area to make sure that everyone was having a good time. The rooms are... More

I only stayed here for 3 days but was able to relax quickly upon settling in. The resort itself is facing the ocean, but with a highway and train tracks in between. I would of enjoyed an ocean view, but think that it would of been too noisy to really relax. Though my room was facing the cliff side it... More

We exchanged to stay here with our timeshare/points membership for our daughter's USC graduation in Los Angeles. Closest we can get, an hour away without the perpetual traffic. We had a 2 bedroom condo for 5 sometimes 6 people and we enjoyed our accommodations. The staff was friendly and willing to meet our every need. Our 2 BR faced the... More

This review serves as a comment regarding my vacation exchange in March 2015. This vacation, we decided to visit LA, San Diego, Palm Springs and the surrounding mountains. The Riviera Beach and Spa Resort adequately served our needs. Although the Resort was under renovation, their work did not interfere with our visit. We thought our room had been renovated, but...

We are Interval International timeshare owners and traded for a week at this resort. We found it to be very clean and well-maintained. We had a few minor housekeeping requests that were handled quickly. The one-bedroom unit was quite comfortable for my husband and I. The view of the beach was lovely. However, we found the first room they put... More
