Now, let me start by saying that I have stayed in a couple of places on the Southern California coast including much esteemed places like the Ritz Carlton hotel in Laguna Niguel. This place blows them away with aplomb.
Marriott has truly cracked the puzzle with this one. Imagine a pleasant, mid-sized resort with gorgeous modern, sleek decor with a nice warm ambiance overlooking one of the great views the planet has to offer. Add to that, a warm, friendly staff and little touches like live orchids, super-pretty landscaping and a great breakfast. Now finally layer in a wonderful, casual, warm family feeling and you begin to see why this place is special. Nobody was stiff or rude to kids and you could tell that they love families.
In terms of business facilities, I did not use many but the Internet access was incredible (I hate poor wifi these days...). There is a really nice pool on the premises if you don't want to hit the many local beaches.
All in all I just loved the place and my family did too. The value for money is off the charts and I will certainly stay here again if the management promises not to change things too much :-)
Great job Marriott Laguna Cliffs, you're working hard and we travelers notice! Keep at it and you will soon be the best rated place in the area.
