Nick was terrific at check in. Demonstrating all the hotel's features. Ashley in the lounge was attentive and always smiling. Megan was a little swamped and hard to come by, but still overall the experience was decadent. Try the donut holes! really decadent. Trying the spa today.

Stayed at the Lagune Cliffs Resort on 3-26-14 and I agree that the location and facility is gorgeous. My issue stems from someone in the mandatory valet taking liberties with my car. Went out for dinner the night I checked in and when my car was brought to me the next morning at checkout there was someone else's CD playing... More

Beautiful property with magnificent views of the Pacific ocean. Being platinum members we got free upgrade to the suite without asking for it. Wifi worked well, breakfast was plentiful for about $25 per person. Rooms clean and room service was nice. would stay again.

This resort is located at the top of cliffs over looking the parks and harbor. Many restaurants, shops and the harbor are within walking distance. The walk back is a bit of a hike since its quite a steep hill or stairs to get back to the resort. The pool area is relaxing with good music playing. The two down... More

I've been coming here for years and I haven't wanted to review this place because I don't want people to know about it. Sure there are the Ritz and Montage and St. Regis down the street but I truly prefer the Cliffs based on price, accommodations and overall service. If I had a complaint, it's that they don't give you... More

We used marriott point for our week stay. We had to upgrade to the category 6 which we were told would be 15000 extra points. They ended up charging us 30000 extra points. Even the supervisor said it was 15000 but in the end the took double that. On top of that they charge a resort fee of $27.50 per... More

Really, this resort provides exceptional value and location for your travel dollar. The only reason that I am not giving it a 5 star rating is that a property of this size and caliber should have immediate and consistent wi-if access in the rooms. The first night I arrived, I couldn't access the web, called the front desk and he... More

Very nice located but hated the $32 parking fee and the internet not free does not work half of the time. Also ocean view is partial and they charge extra for it. Please read the small letters.

Great location for business meeting, weddings, or retreat. Ocean View, nice weather, clean, comfortable rooms. But to not have consistent wifi throughout the hotel, including the room is analogous to not having water. Pathetic. There's no excuse, esp when you are charged for it. Their technology is outdated. No business that needs wifi should be held here.
