Everything was perfect! The room, the view, the food, and the people who work in this fantastic property. The entire experience was gloriously exquisite! Check-in: 5/5 The front desk associate asked if we could wait for a room as we were entitled to an upgrade. Then, they gave us all the details about the property, treated us very special, which we greatly appreciate! Room: 5/5 The room is regal! We love the character and vibes. Clean and comfy! The coastal view from the balcony was phenomenal. Food and beverage: 5/5 Lots of selections and all of them were superb! I couldn't say more. Just go! Experience: 5/5 The associates were outstanding. No matter who you are, they will ensure that you will have the best experience in your life. We couldn't wait to go back!

The Club Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel is amazing, which beats any Executive Lounge in JW Marriott or the Club Lounge at the InterContinental I have been experiencing. For example, the seared tuna here is better than any 5-star Japanese restaurants that provide Omakase or Kaiseki in Los Angeles, including West Hollywood, or Beverly Hills, Calif. The prime rib I had tonight is better than the high-end steakhouse like Fleming's or Morton's in Los Angeles or Woodland Hills where I have been there many times. Surprised to me, the Bloody Mary cocktail drink one waitress made at the Club Lounge is far better than the one I had recently at a 4-satr hotel whose hotel chain is one of the top three hotels in the world. Congratulations on engineers at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, who know how to make the swimming pool temperature just right, meaning I do not need to feel very cold for a few seconds (or a little bit uncomfortable) right after entering into the pool. It goes without saying that every staff working at the Club Lounge is well trained, making you feel good, and we just want to come back again.

This is wonderful hotel. They have a great pool and the grounds are unbelievable. It’s probably sitting on some of the most expensive land in the world. Check in was great and the service was perfect. Took my daughter there for a mini vacation. We had a great room very accessible to the pool. It’s perfect for kids and if you have furry friends.

First time at Ritz as Gold Tier. We were warmly greeted, acknowledged for our tier, but they didn’t have any availability for an upgrade. Rooms are decent but there were so many events going on at the hotel. We rarely have a night out without kids and wanted to celebrate our anniversary in peace and quiet. Unfortunately, this isn’t the resort for that. Our garden fireplace room was directly facing a wedding Buffett (probably 50 yards from our room fire pit. We kindly asked for another room and they found another room on the other side of the hotel. When we got there, we saw another event setting up…again maybe 50-100 yards from the pit. Again, not an ideal getaway if you’re looking for peace and quiet. We tried to get our original room back but they already gave it away…

Thank you for your loyalty and choosing to stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. We're happy you felt acknowledged and welcomed at arrival. However, we sincerely apologize for the excessive events and noise levels outside of your room. We can see how frustrating that was since you were there to celebrate a special anniversary with a beautiful fireside guestroom. Thank you for taking the time to express your feedback as we are continuously looking to improve. Again, we are very sorry for not delivering on a peaceful experience and hope you'll give us a second chance to restore your trust in us.

A quick and easy getaway from San Diego and our first trip as a family of four. The hotel is beautiful and there are plenty of things to do. Our 2 year old loved the pool, beach, and playground. We dined at the market and cliffside restaurant everyday. The staff was so warm and kind to my son who can be a bit rambunctious. They gave him s throughout our stay and on a particularly cool afternoon, one of the waiters went out of his way to track down a hot chocolate for him. Staying at a nice hotel can be stressful with little ones but this was such a pleasant and easy going trip thanks to the wonderful staff. A perfect getaway for these tired parents :)
