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 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

We stayed in a one-bedroom and rented a second one bedroom for our daughter and her friend to avoid crowding. This brings me to the biggest issue - the seating is truly uncomfortable. Diamond Resorts uses sofa beds instead of sofas. This is to provide extra sleeping capacity. I appreciate the problems of couples with children who may not have... More

We traded our crown gold Hawaii resort waterfront view for this dump, totally not what a resort should be, maybe more like a homeless resort.... First night we had red ants in our room, everywhere, marching along the walls, in bathroom, kitchen, bedroom. Our room was facing the mountain, no view at all. We complained. They changed up to a...

I'll keep this short and simple. I went on a short vacation here with my girlfriend for a few days. Jen and Kora were the two women at the front desk who we met when we first arrived. They were very nice, polite, funny, and helped us throughout our stay. Next, we went to our room and we had a... More
