We were impressed with the general property of Laguna Cliffs. As we drove up the hill we saw people gathered around by tiki torches enjoying cocktails on a cool California evening. The bell man could not have been nicer and every valet we encountered was courteous and efficient. We had the buffet breakfast, which is a little pricey but when... More

Was there for a business meeting. Property was very nice. It is walking distance to the beach. It has an open air feel like in Hawaii. Food was above average even for a big group. Front desk and wait staff all were very nice. And helpful. I would go back on my own.

My wife and I are three teenagers tried this resort for our summer vacation this year, as we love to hit the beach with boogie boards and enjoy vacation on the sand and surf. Typically, we rent a beach house near Newport Beach, but this time we thought we would try something different. Pros: beautiful resort property, excellent service from... More

I know I have friends who love their Marriott rewards, but I am not a Marriott customer. However, I had an event in Dana Point and a friend highly recommended staying here and so I did.

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.

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.
