My daughter and I had such a great trip in April in this area, so we decided to go back for more and take in the art festivals. Dana Point didn't seem that far when we were staying in Laguna, and we decided we wanted a full service resort. The resort had everything you would want and they upgraded us to an ocean view at no additional charge. The room was comfortable and pleasantly decorated. Ocean view here us not the same as it was in Laguna Beach for sure. It's far away and there are many trees in the view. This is a lively resort with activities going on all the time along with the noise. Great breakfast buffet. Marina gave me an excellent facial! The reason for the lower score on service is due to the lackadaisical valet service. They act like they don't see you standing there for a surprising amount of time, and there was no offer to help with our luggage when we checked in. The guy was standing there at the back of our car, flirting with my daughter while I took out all our luggage. The restaurant seemed understaffed as well, but it was the Fourth of July week. We felt staying in Dana Point was a bit too out of the way for the things we wanted to do. I feel as though this is why most hotels that far south are big resorts. It's better if you just want to stay there and not go anywhere. They do have everything.
