I stayed here with my family for a spring break weekend. We got a special deal on hotels.com for a poolside special. The rooms are standard size with a couch on the side, and French doors that open to a small patio that leads directly to the pool. However, we had to walk through the hotel all the way to... More

The hotel is nice but it is not a resort. Free Wi-Fi is provided but there is a 27.50 daily resort fee. On parking, there is a $35.00 daily parking fee and no option except to park way down the hill on the parameter of the park grounds. So when you book, be sure to factor in $62.50 daily up... More

We stayed for part of Spring Break. I liked that although it was fairly full, it didn't seem crowded or noisy. Loved the short walk to the beach, though there are much nicer beaches a short drive away. Hiking back up the road could be a challenge for some. Bocce in the neighboring park was a nice surprise. There is... More

We are having a great stay at the Laguna Cliffs and the worker at the bar, George, went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. He wheeled over heaters and even brought me a blanket so that I could sit outside and enjoy the evening. He was exceptional and just made my trip. Well done George!

This place was beautiful and luxurious. I stayed for a meeting and all of us talked about how the pillows are like clouds. We had lunch outside and the views were spectacular. Also walking distance from local bars and shops and the marina. The hotel was very updated and clean and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Husband and I visited the property, we enjoyed our stay. The views are absolutely breath taking, stunning sunsets. The beds were comfortable, EXTREMELY soft beds, you literally sink in. The carpets could use a good cleaning, but overall nice rooms. Spa and fitness center were a bonus, they provide water and healthy snacks (apples and bananas, etc). Clean spa facilities,... More

Very nice hotel, helpful staff and great views. Whale watching and nice restaurants within walking distance. Short scenic drive to other beaches and sites. Could do without annoying resort and parking fees though. Really added to total bill even on days that reward points were used.

We were in So CA for a wedding, and this was the hotel the wedding party chose as the main place for people to stay. Originally I thought it was way too expensive, but we were able to use points.
