I stayed here 2 nights using Marriott points. I was upgraded to a coastal view. The room was very comfortable, with a large marble bath, big closet, french doors that opened to an enclosed balcony with table & chairs and very comfy bed with a beautiful coastal view. I've stayed in many Ritz hotels, and I find their rooms comfortably... More

We spent our wedding night at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel and it was absolutely perfect. The bedding and atmosphere and even the fragrance of the place was just beautiful, clean, luxury feel. It was the perfect place to spend the first night as husband and wife. The R'ya restaurant was just a romantic peaceful view of the ocean for breakfast... More

The location of this Ritz is incredible. The views are stunning. The service is excellent just like you would expect at a Ritz Carlton. There is a shuttle that you can take to the beach; however it is only a short 10 minute walk down the hill. There is also a walking/bike trail that we took on our morning walk... More

We had a business conference at the Ritz Carlton and for one day my view from the "office" was blue skies, surfers and crashing waves! We actually had to shut the doors of the conference room due to the sound of the waves crashing (oh the irony!). The staff was on point and they did a great job assisting with... More

Loved it. Spent 2 nights for a business meeting and couldn't have asked for anything more. Even their buffet food was excellent. The restaurant right in the Ritz was REALLY good....rooms pretty. the views fantastic. Five stars!

The Ritz-Carlton is in the beautiful city of Dana Point, CA. It is miles away from Laguna Niguel. The name is confusing. The name was apparently assigned by the first manager, while he still lived in New York.

My wife and I stayed at the Ritz in Laguna for one night on our trip up the coast. I used Marriott points for our room and we were upgraded to the Club level. However, there was some confusion at check-in as I had confirmed a King room, but the desk agent insisted I booked a room with two double... More

Ritz Carlton's are supposed to be 5-star hotels, and the RC Laguna charges 5-star rates at $745/night for their Coastline view room which we booked. Having stayed at all the other local 5-star resorts (Montage, Pelican Hill, St.Regis), the Ritz was our least favorite. Would return only if none of the other 3 are available. The hotel is in dire...

I took my wife here for her 50th birthday and the location is spectacular. In addition, everyone is extremely nice and helpful, greets you at every turn and truly desires your stay to be special. So why not five stars then? Well, one reason was within their control and one is not. We stayed on the third floor in an... More
