Been coming to this privately owned hotel for over a decade, with kids or as a couple, Laguna Rivera offers a unique and very relaxing experience of a shot at a beach life as close as it gets. Place has it's own private access to the beach, offers rooms with kitchens as well as a large grilling station. No corporate... More

We have stayed at Laguna Riviera twice and we have really enjoyed both stays. The front desk staff, Brendan, was very helpful when necessary. Tony was accommodating with our requests and really friendly. The rooms we have stayed in needed some minor maintainence but have been updated. Overall, this property has great views of the Pacific Ocean!!!

The staff were great especially Brendan who ran the front desk in the evenings.The rooms, though a little worn, were clean and comfortable. The views were definitely... More

Mixed reviews all over the Internet ....my vote is this is the perfect place for a 60/70 (as in the year) type beach vibe. Looked hi and low for a review on Room 202 and found zippols. The sounds and breezes are wonderful 🧀🍸🌴🏄🏾

This place was recommended to us by a good friend. Unfortunately we did not have the good experiences she has had over the years. All the rooms she recommended were booked so I asked the reservationist to recommend a private, romantic room. He suggested room 410. Upon arrival the gal at the front desk was unfriendly and rude. Handed us... More

I'm not a person that likes to complain, and will usually only write a review when I have something nice to say, but I can't bite my tongue here. I will say the location is excellent, as well as the view from the courtyard area. That's where any compliment I have ends. I stayed in room 301 (pictures attached). As... More

The location of the hotel is great, you can walk to the downtown shops and galleries and there are many good restaurants close by. We had room 517. Although it doesn't have a balcony or patio it does have an ocean view if you stick your head out the window. And it's on the top floor so we were able... More

They get a lot of use over the summer and this one will be replaced. Now that the heavy use of summer is over we are starting our annual room services to make sure... More

This was our second time staying here and I must say we had a better experience this time. Staff was friendlier and we had a larger room with air conditioning this time. The best thing about this hotel is the location. Right on the water and close to the village. You can just park your car and walk. The rooms... More

This hotel never disappoints. It is our "go-to" for a relaxing getaway on the beach. The free breakfast is a nice perk, and on our most recent visit, they had added waffles to the choices. There are beach chairs and umbrellas available to borrow from the office, so you don't have to bake in the sun if you don't want... More
