This hotel is a delightful hotel. Very comfortable and the refurbishment is very tastefully done indeed.
Although we didn't have a balcolny most of rooms in the hotel have beautiful balcolnies which we were told go very fast indeed. However, our room was lovely and the bed oh so comfy. We had a view of the ocean from our room along with the road that ran past the hotel.
It was quite strange when we drew up to check in as my husband had to ask if it was a Marriott for fear we had the wrong place. There are no Marriott signs as it retains its original name which was the Laguna Cliffs Resort and Spa and the valets, porters, concierge and people who check you in don't wear any Marriott badges - in fact there is nothing Marriott to be seen apart from a small book in your bedside drawer with the history of the Marriott. This will in time change I am sure as Marriott have only been managing it for about a year and most of that time has been put to completely refurbishing which, as I have said, is wonderful.
There is a lovely balcolny where you can have cocktails, tapas food and coffee and muffins in the morning if you don't want to go to the restaurant for a full blown breakfast. We had quite a few cocktails each day which were delicious and the views from the balcolnies are outstanding.
I cannot fault the hotel at all it is quite simply beautiful. Well run and you are treated very well indeed. Anybody going this year will enjoy the hotel I'm sure.
It has a luxurious pool area with padded chairs and a bar where chefs also prepare anything you want. The place is quite heavenly.
