There aren't enough words! The property is gorgeous. It's not ON the water, it sits on a bluff above the water. Bit of a wrangle getting to the water, other than that, it is a sumptuous hotel experience. Everything is lush and lavish and caters to your every wish. We only had a king room overlooking the pool, and it was fantastic! Room service was better than most restaurants! Each dining area and bar was fab. We stayed for a week and never wanted to leave. They make you feel like a king! Can't wait to go again. Soon. Worth every nickel you can save up!

Room Tip: Spend as much as you can afford, every room is fabulous. But the rooms with an ocean view would be o...

my client and i loved this hotel. we had a vip group of 150+ on site and the service we received was more than perfect. from the time you step out of your car to the time you leave there this hotel will take care of all your needs. the food is awesome and the views are amazing. definitely a top notch hotel.

Room Tip: the ocean view suites are perfect!

The views from the hotel were amazing! We stay here for only one night and everything about it was great! Very friendly staff, amazing views, and some of the best nachos. You must go to the bar/lounge that is outside on the 2nd floor. This was out first stay at Ritz Carlton and we enjoyed it. The bar/lounge near the entrance was mediocre. Dessert was good, drinks were pricey of course. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I spent the first weekend of May at this remarkable property. We were warmly greeted, and I noticed that this was the case for all the guests. They do this with ease, despite a rather large influx of guests that afternoon. We splurged for the Club level, and the service/attention to detail was remarkable. Tip for those staying on the club level at any Ritz, take advantage of the drink/food spread that's placed throughout the day. Overall, a beautiful property, and definitely recommended.

A bit (a lot) pricey, but also super classy without being ostentatious!!

Stayed two nights for our anniversary in May and will definitely make it an annual event!! Wonderful room, great (and accommodating staff), and that amazing view!!!

We've stayed at some pretty nice hotels, but the Ritz Carlton in Laguna takes the cake!! Arguably, the best hotel we have ever stayed at!!

If you can afford it, even for one night, stay there! It's that nice!!

My family and I keep coming back, but I never take time to write a review. We love this beautiful property, well managed, has wonderful staff and simply everything works. This hotel has an amazing view, and it's set right above a beautiful beach. The staff is very helpful in setting you up at the beach if that's how you would like to spend the day. Besides the cafe in the lobby (great) we only dined in the main restaurant. The food was only nice, not dramatic, and it has only a casual feel at night. My favorite space is the deck restaurant. Great view, great energy and great food and drinks. Ritz Carlton staff, thank you so much for making our weekends special! You are amazing!

Room Tip: Last time we had two rooms by the pool. At time of booking we thought it would be a great idea. But...

After staying at the Ritz in Chicago my standards were very high- and this location did not dissapoint. We arrived early and the check in process was very quick, unfortunately there was not a room available so we decided to have lunch at the hotel while we waited. We ate on the outdoor deck, the view was breathtaking! The food and service at the restuarant were wonderful as well.
When we got our room I was a bit dissapointed as there was no crib and the baby proofing was not done as I had asked- however this was remedied within 10min. We spent a lot of time at the pool, there was not shortage of fresh towels and cucumber water. When we wandered to the beach there was a golf cart to take us (we had a toddler with us so walking would have been cumbersome) and there is a beach butler service that provides sunscreen, toys, towels, and water once you get down to the beach (spoiled)!
The decor of the hotel and the rooms is elegant and trendy, the cleanliness exceeded my expecations. I would love to have a chance to stay at this property again.
