Beautiful resort - perfect for families OR couples, which I find is often hard to find. Our kids enjoyed the DelMar pool area - in addition to the pool, it features a large baby pool, and a splash pad with attached surf boards for the kids to play on. There is also a small putting range and table tennis. The pool loungers are extremely comfortable, and there is poolside service for food/drinks. If you prefer a quieter pool scene, there is an additional pool deck located on property. Since we were traveling with kids, we also appreciated the kids club. Thanks to Annie for keeping our kids occupied with crafts and games while we enjoyed some quiet time! This resort was just what we were looking for - kid friendly enough so they don't get bored, but still relaxing, quiet, and refined enough for the adults to enjoy themselves. We were blown away with the service at this resort - starting with the valet, check-in process, housekeeping - poolside service - everyone was welcoming, an attentive to our every need. Location is fabulous - we spent our days on the resort, then took a short walk (5-10mins on paved trail/sidewalk) to the harbor area for happy hours. We also spent a day at Baby Beach and Ocean Institute, which can easily be reached by foot. The resort does offer beach equipment. We look forward to visiting again, soon!

Overall, I would give the Marriott at Laguna Cliffs a great rating. The property was clean, updated (rooms as well) and had beautiful views. We stayed 4 nights here for a business trip mixed with some vacationing. The place was like a ghost town, it seemed there was barely anyone else staying here the second week of May 2021. We had the pool and hot tub pretty much to ourselves. The valet was quick with awesome service. We are Bonvoy members and only stay at Marriott hotels and have come to expect a comfortable experience with them. With that being said, we booked an ocean view room with 2 double beds and a balcony. The beds were TERRIBLE and the pillows were just as bad (flat with no support), I could not even believe the poor quality with these. We have never experienced this at a Marriott. We are not ones to complain so we just dealt with it and didn’t get a good nights rest any of the nights we were there which is hard when traveling with a big time change. The only other big disappointment was the water in the shower. The pressure was great and the bathroom was clean and updated, however after getting out of the shower, both my sister and I felt like our hair had a weird residue left in it and we could not get it to rinse clean. We were left with dirty feeling hair the entire time we were there. I am not sure what to say about the bad experiences here as this is not like Marriott AT ALL, but considering the price of the hotel, unfortunately these cons outweighed the pros.

What an amazing lunch meal served by incredible & talented server Carlos, with over 28 years of experience here! The food was truly amazing, very fresh ingredients and a billion dollar view overlooking Dana Point Harbor. Rod and Brandon you are doing a super job with the talent and Service level at your resort. Thank you for opening back up and setting new standards for excellence in Southern California. We will be back again soon!

We were so happy that the Laguna Cliffs Marriott has now reopened after being closed for renovation. My husband and I live close by and have stayed at this hotel several times but mainly we come to have some drinks and food and enjoy the panoramic views of the ocean and Dana Point Harbor from their outdoor bar patio area. I had called ahead and they do limit seating and ask for reservations on the weekend. When we entered we were greeted with a warm hello and welcome back from the bartender Christine. She has been working there for many years and always gives amazing service. All covid protocol was in place and we felt very comfortable finally being able to visit one of our favorite places. The valet and indoor staff were very courteous and up to high Marriott standard.

We had a gift certificate for the spa. We called the hotel and asked if the gift certificate could be applied to the room charge, and a very friendly staff member told us "absolutely." We booked. So, we arrived at check in, presented our gift certificate, and were told it could not be applied. We recounted our conversation from when we booked. Still no. Spoke to the manager. Still no - "the spa and hotel are separate." Even though we could clearly see that it was very low occupancy at the time, they were not willing to work with us. So, we left. Very frustrating. But we very much enjoyed our stay at a rival hotel that is actually ocean front in Laguna. DISCLAIMER: This happened in Oct 2019 but I cannot select that far back.

Dear William C, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your experience last year. I was very sorry to hear about your frustration for not being able to use your certificate. Some certificates are issued for specific services only and may not be interchangeable. While I do not have much information about the situation as it has been a year, I would be happy to answer any questions, or look into the matter further. Sincerely,
