Stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night for a side trip from my vacation in San Diego. Although the hotel is named Laguna Cliffs and may, in fact, be in that area do not think you are staying in or near Laguna Beach. This is actually Dana Point and Laguna Beach is about an 8 mile car ride away. That said, the hotel property is lovely situated on a cliff. Our room was stylishly decorated with a balcony overlooking the pool. While the woman who checked us in stated we had a pool and water view - it would have been the water in the pool and not the ocean. The hotel staff was excellent and very welcoming at check in. Unfortunately, we did not get to use the spa due to time constraints. The only Con I truly see is the mandatory valet for $29 a night and the resort fee. Using the resort facilities should be built into the price of the hotel. Simply put, if you do not use the resort activities and services you are being charged for nothing. In our case we did not have time to use any of the bikes etc that this fee covered so.... Would absolutely recommend the hotel if you are traveling in this area. But do not miss Laguna Beach!
