Excellent in every way. Super outgoing and friendly staff. Rooms and public areas were spotlessly clean. Solid Covid protocols for all staff members. Starbucks on premise. The restaurant was above average for a hotel but the menu a bit limited in scope. Beautiful ocean views from the bar/restaurant, pool areas and multiple patios. Being on the bluffs makes the view great but the 118 steps up and down to the marina,dining and shopping area could be a challenge for some. Overall highly recommend the Laguna Cliffs Marriot.

Just spent 5 days at Laguna Cliffs after a last minute pivot from the Hyatt Huntington Beach due to the tragic oil spill. Laguna Cliffs was fantastic right from the start. We booked enroute to the hotel and arrived exhausted after a long drive -- they setup our pack and play within minutes and helped get us settled. The service from the restaurant, pool, bellhop, valet, front desk were all fantastic. If there is still a labor shortage -- you don't feel it here. Staff is eager and friendly. It was midweek, and the hotel was quite slow....but there was plenty of staff on hand should it have been busier. The room well appointed, the pools and grounds were fantastic for the kids, the view ---no words needed. The restaurant could have a more robust menu given that's all that was walkable...but that is my only critique. Will 100% be back. Well done Laguna Cliffs!

Overall we had a very good stay. The room was nice, clean & comfortable. The views from the hotel were excellent and the staff very friendly. The grounds are well kept and it's nice to relax and walk around Lantern Bay park in front of the hotel. We had dinner at Vue Restaurant and was told fireworks would come right up in front of us (since it was 4th of July). However, the trees blocked the firework view. It was a pretty good stay.

9/25/2021. On our way to the hotel at 5:00pm, I tried to check in with the app. It wouldn't let me check in until 5:45, even though the check-in time was at 4:00. We got to the hotel and I made this known to the front desk. The gentleman took on inordinate amount of time checking us in and said that they were having "technical difficulties" (no internet) on the south side of the hotel, where our assigned room was. So he put us in a different room, which I assumed would be as good as the one we booked, a "resort view" room. Well, he put us in the worst room on the entire property. It did not have a resort view, but a wall view, which worked to prevent any light from coming in. It was like being in a dark cave. The room was $1,095.95. We had a dinner reservation to get to so didn't bother calling the front desk. Later that night, we caught three mosquitos in the room before going to bed. In the morning, I found three more in the bathroom. They must have come through the gap in the door (which was evident by the light that came in from the corridor), because we had the slider closed the entire time (other than when we went out to investigate the wall). The front desk should have at least asked whether we would have preferred no wifi or a cave room. I could have done without wifi for a night! When we checked out, the hotel system didn't even have us in the updated room, but our original room, which was couldn't have been worse than the terrible room we were given. I made my complaint about the room assignment and the mosquitoes. No effort was made to right the wrong for their terrible judgment, just a "oh I'm sorry about that." Good business practices? Absolutely not.

Thank you for your feedback. Your review is very important to us. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments regarding your recent stay at our Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa. Please accept our sincerest apologies for the mosquitoes that inadvertently entered your guestroom. As you can imagine, it is our daily intent to ensure each guest’s stay is enjoyable, relaxing and a memorable experience. Pursuant to your report, our Front Desk team requested for Ecolab (an independent pest control company) to assess this situation. Ecolab informed us that extreme heat and humidity in our region over the past few weeks has caused an increase in mosquito activity. Please be assured this is not the norm for this area and this was an isolated incident. We certainly appreciate your constructive feedback and hope your travels will bring you back to our resort in the future so we may ensure your next stay is a truly memorable one.
