My husband and I stayed at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resprt and Spa for 2 nights for our wedding. We booked two separate rooms for each of us and our respective bridal parties. It was a good stay overall but I was a little upset when I heard that someone stopped our photographer from taking pre-wedding pictures of our bridal... More

We are very pleased that you had a good stay and we regret that your photographer was stopped from taking pictures. We do give all couples who are having their wedding at the resort exclusive rights to the property. We are very thankful that you understand the reasoning and we hope that this did not inconvenience you in any way. More

I booked a room at this hotel at the last minute for a quiet New Year's Eve and wasn't disappointed. I relaxed by the pool, had an early sunset dinner in the restaurant, and spent a quiet evening reading. At midnight, I opened my window to look out over the distant water and listen to fireworks and people cheering in... More

We spent one night; Christmas Eve, here, and we really enjoyed it. My husband and I walked around the streets of Dana Point and then enjoyed the sunset in the coctail lounge. We appreciated the layout of the hotel, and we LOVED the fact that our room had french doors that OPENED on to a little balcony with an ocean... More

Booked 3 rooms at this hotel for us an visiting family. For starters, the restaurant is only open on the weekends. Fine, we'll eat in the lounge. At 2am, the fire alarm went off, repeatedly, for over a half hour. The staff, untrained in how to operate the Alarm PA system, tried several times to tell us that it was... More

We stayed in Laguna Cliffs resort from 26th Dec- 28th Dec, 2011. On the 27th night, around 1.30am, the fire alarms in the hotel malfunctioned and kept going on and on for the entire night, making us unable to sleep. The kids had to be taken outside the hotel in dead of winter due to fire scare, only to find... More

Spend two days in this charming resort. We were looking for a quiet retreat and it was just what we were looking for. Some dining options at walking distance, lovely view.

Let me start by saying that it is a very nice place. There are some cool lawn chair canopy things on the lawns, very pretty architecture etc. But based on the website I was expecting the hotel to be on a cliff right above the ocean and rather dramatic. This is not the case. In front of the hotel there... More

The property is beautiful and the staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms are very nice. Vue restaurant in the hotel has great food! They also have a great bar on the lobby level that opens up to a deck with great sunset views. They have heaters and blankets outside for when its cold. Nice touch!

The property is in a beautiful location and the hotel is well kept. The rooms are a bit small but the views and nice pools are great. We stayed over the weekend and we could hear the family above us the entire night. I spoke with the front desk and they said this isn't usual to hear others but we... More
