Stayed here through a timeshare. Room had good view of the beach but you'll have to walk over the highway to get there. To hear the ocean, you hear a lot of traffic... Room was outdated and looked cheap. Could use a a little place in places. This is not a place if you're used to luxury, but it's a... More

My visit to Riviera Beach & Spa Capistrano We stayed in this nice resort from Friday January 8 till January 15. Upon our arrival about 11 am, the front desk associates accommodated us in few minutes and assigned us the unit. I expressed interest in an ocean view unit if possible. Ms. Elizabeth and Ms. Angela promised that they will... More

We booked this hotel for 3 nights using our timeshare. We absolutely LOVE this location. Even though the train goes by from time to time, it was less annoying then the man we could hear snoring through the wall at night. Neither were bad. We are good sleepers! The best part for us, besides location, was the bikes! They have... More

We just spent an enjoyable holiday week at Riviera Shores on a timeshare trade. The highlight for me is that it overlooks the ocean at Doheny State Beach (behind coast highway and active train tracks) with some fun coastal bike riding that I describe in my book “enCYCLEpedia Southern California-The Best Easy Bike Rides.” The resort lends basic one-speed beach...

Diamond Resorts now owns and operates this resort build from 2-3 older properties. It is currently being upgraded to their consistently high standard of quality and service. Our 1BR unit had a full kitchen, though some may have just fridge and microwave. We had a jetted tub/shower and a balcony with chairs and a gas grill overlooking the beach and... More

Nice place, super friendly staff (a little pushy on getting you to attend their timeshare meeting, but ok). It was my birthday when we stayed and they left cupcakes in my room! Super nice! Great view of the ocean. Every room is a bedroom separate from the "living room/kitchen", nice large bathroom. It was more than I thought I was... More

The unit as updated, had lots of extras. Saw beautiful sunsets, surf rolling in. the trains were not bothersome. think the surf was louder. Pool and hot tub very nice. Free use of bikes and helmets. Access to beach was an issue. 37 steps up to bridge and 57 down to beach. ASK at desk how to get in to... More

The overall hotel style is is almost motel but all rooms have an ocean view with entry from the opposite side. Right next to Pacific coast highway so there is some road noise if your sit out on the balcony but since the bed room is on the far side our sleep was not interrupted. The back side of the... More

I had the pleasure of staying here last week. My room a one bedroom unit overlooked the ocean. The rooms are fairly large, the bed very comfortable, and it sports a fully equipped kitchen and Weber BBQ on the deck. There is a fitness center, 2 pools, activity center and concierge desk. All in all it was a pleasant comfortable... More

The reception staff and concierge are so nice and helpful. Our room is a one bedroom suite with a full kitchen. It is nicely yet simply decorated room lacking nothing. We have a balcony (always nice) overlooking the ocean (and PCH traffic and the RR tracks).. The location is not the best if you like walking but if you are... More
