We stayed at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott over the 4th of July holiday. First let me say that we booked in January and got a great deal. I understand the hotel was sold out so people who booked later paid almost double what we paid. It is a great location. Up on a cliff with the Dana Point Harbor on... More

Stayed at the Laguna Cliffs for 4 nights. The trip was 1/2 business and 1/2 pleasure. Fantistic location with amazing grounds. Even though the hotel is in Dana Point ,Laguna Beach is right down the road. and I recommend checking it out. The marina and all of the 15 plus restaurants are a 5 minute walk down a scenic pathway... More

Our family of 5 stayed at the resort from July 2nd - 6th and wish we would have stayed longer! The resort grounds were beautiful, right by the beach and close to many restaurants.

Granted, the July 4th weekend is a popular time to visit, but the rooms were very pricey for the size of the rooms. Everything was well appointed and very posh, it felt opulent yet cozy at the same time. Nice views over the park and Dana Point harbor. The walk to the harbor is not far, but the stairway down...

Upon arriving to what we thought would be a beautiful resort it went down hill immediately. Had to wait over 30 minutes just to check in.
