Facilities are so beautiful and good enough for all family. For example, the hotel had 2 pool area. One of them is for kids and... More

With 2 pools bocee ball ewtc family can stay very entertained staying within the resort extensive grounds. Only have valet parking-they are fast at... More

Spent two nights in Dana Point. The hotel was terrific from start to finish. Beautiful views of the ocean and harbor. For the price paid for a standard room ($200-220/night), this hotel was a bargain (not that I'm suggesting they raise prices!). The food at the restaurant was very good, and the breakfast buffet was way above average. The service... More

In all our visits to Laguna Beach, somehow we have missed staying the Marriott Laguna Cliffs Hotel until July of 2016. What a great hotel! Beautiful hotel and awesome views, nice pool, fantastic staff, and very nice guest rooms. We had an issue with a broken bed and a great staff member appeared immediately to attempt to resolve the issue.... More

One night stay for Pageant of Masters. Nice room with view of beach but not on it. Nice pool and Max provided excellent service. Lots of gym equipment in good condition. Titled a resort but it is your typical Marriott. Needs some small paint touch up but overall nice.

This is a good hotel if you want to be near harbor. A lot of rooms with view. Nice pool if you have kids. Lots of water activities for them to run around and play in. Rooms are typical but nice. They sprayed with a chemical that is obviously supposed to smell good. I couldn't stand the smell of the... More

I'm too tired and annoyed to write a narrative review. My pro/con list will probably tell you why... Pro: Convenient location for our needs. Con: - Reservation at the hotel different from that on my confirmation and app (Monday check out instead of Wednesday). Employee very confrontational about it. - Safe battery dead as we were leaving to go out... More

Absolutely loved this property! The service was great and I think the nightly rate was good for the value! I didn't have any room service so can't comment on food but the drinks were great! The property is also great for kids! My niece is a little baby but as a new parent my sister did appreciate seeing other families... More

Hotel is very pretty from outside and in great location. Rooms where decorated nicely but a little worn. Cleanliness is another story. Room had left over bar soap in shower from previous guest, coffee pot had left over used grinds in it, carpet needed vacuuming and rooms are small. We had a room with double beds. I requested higher floor... More
