The view is spectacular and the staff is Marriott professional and trained. Especially good were the waitpersons in the dining/bar area. They did seem on one night to be understaffed. One hiccup occurred when I requested a sitting near the window for later that evening for a special occasion. Keep in mind that I was doing business meals/meetings all day, so they knew me & I am a Lifetime Gold Member. The one thing I believe is in the service industry you should never do is simply say "no" to a paying customer. I worked it out later and a very kind waitperson & bartender comped a drink and brought a cupcake! Good thinking.
Pool area is very nice and clean. I did not have the opportunity to use the spa due to business.
Pricy to park a car, but in fairness, parking is tricky in Dana Point.
All in all, I would return as I like the area but only on discounted pricing.
