I was fortunate enough to stay at this property with my husband during a business conference, absolutely breathtaking! We enjoyed a garden view room but none the less it was beautiful. We enjoyed the ocean view many times while eating lunch or having cocktails. It was quite relaxing every morning to run on the boardwalk, ocean side, while observing the... More

This is the second time I have been at the Ritz in Laguna Niguel. The first time was for Drinks over the bluffs. This time for a 2 night stay. Had an ocean view room on 2nd floor. Everything about our stay was flawless; from check-in to check-out. The resort was lovely, well manicured and situated on one of the... More

Stayed at this property for 3 nights for a business event. Our room faced the pool, so we didn't enjoy the view of the Pacific as we should have upgraded. Rooms were well appointed, but not to the normal Ritz standards. Views of the ocean from the gym were amazing and from the terrace bar/restaurant. Staff was excellent and common... More

I've stayed at several Ritz's before but this one tops its off. Overlooking the beach set on top of a cliff the views were mesmerizing. I stayed at the property for 4 days 3 nights. I liked the location of my room facing the ocean so every morning waking up looking at the surf was tranquil. The fitness center is... More

My husband and I stayed here for the first time using our Marriott points. There is only valet parking here. There is also a $30 resort fee. We were pleasantly surprised by an upgraded OceanView room. The property and rooms are quite lovely. The room appointments were plentiful and wonderful. The bed and sheeted were luxurious. The marble bathroom was... More

The Ritz Carlton Dana Point, in Laguna Niguel California is a spectacular resort hotel. In fact of all the Ritz Carlton Resorts, at which I have stayed, this one and the one in San Juan, are my favorites.

First of all, best mattress EVER! Great room, very nice amenities and a nice balcony with the perfect view of the coast line. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The location is close to Laguna Beach and Dana Point, so plenty of quant shops and local restaurants to visit. Uber and Lyft are available in the area and the rates... More

It's a Ritz Carlton. This was our second business trip here. Location is amazing. Food is awesome. Place is huge. My suggestions--ask for a room with a view. Both times I felt like they did not want to give to us but our friends who were more persistent got upgraded. Also, have someone show you how to use the showers... More
