Awesome hotel in every way! Perfect ambiance, top notch service. Everyone that works there goes out of their way to make sure that your stay is perfect. Have stayed in and been to a lot of great hotels, this Ritz is top one or two for me.

We came here for a 3 night stay with our two teenage grandsons and were very very sorely disappointed . Our expectations were very high having stayed at Ritz Carlton properties before. Firstly when we checked in at 4 pm(normal check in time) one of our rooms wasn't ready as we were told previous guests were given a late check... More

If you want a hotel where the quality of service is only outdone by the location and views, you need to select and stay at The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel. The rooms are spacious, warm and beautifully appointed. The attention to detail and responsiveness by the entire staff was impressive. From the moment you walk in the front door to the... More

The beautiful patio bar area is perfect for drinks and appetizers. Looking for a special place to spend the day and feel like a queen, this is the place to go. You can relax and take in the view and experience the life of luxury. It's not to expensive if you just have an appetizer and a drink. Give it... More

Visited just 3 days on our way back to the US from a week in Cabo. Award winning customer service and attention to every single detail always make the Ritz stand shoulders above the rest. Never disappointing. We were surprised at the number of young children this visit and the noise that accompanies them. However, overall the Ritz is always... More

This hotel is basically on a cliff overlooking the ocean. Great spa/gym. Nice pool. Good walk down to The ocean ( 5 minutes ). The service is great . The area is a bit of a bedroom community , but for a day of sun and pool on the property is good. The hotel itself is a nicer upper tier... More

Another Ritz Carlton great experience! This is a beautiful property with great service and friendly, efficient staff. We were fortunate to have an ocean view room. Fun watching all the surfers. We had dinner plans elsewhere with friends, but breakfast in the restaurant was yummy. Wish we could have stayed longer to be able to enjoy more of this wonderful... More

This could be our favorite hotel anywhere. It was an amazing couples weekend that we will never forget. The views are stunning and you feel relaxed from the minute you walk in this resort.

We love to go to Ritz Carlton for lunch. It is a beautiful hotel with oceanview. The restaurant is very good food with the beautiful view of ocean. The location is very near Orange County and not far from San Diego. It is nice place for relax or doing business
