I have stayed in several rooms at the Laguna Riviera over the years including 101, 201, 301, 305, 410, 508 and most recently 515. I was reading a previous review from a "CapeTownFriend" giving my personal favorite hotel a 2 rating for some knd of buzz sound. That review has prompted me to set the scene in the proper light and post my first review on Tripadvisor. Well, I'm sorry but the truth is that I stayed in the same room, 515 one week ago for 3 nights, Thursday, Friday & Saturday, while visiting Laguna for a birthday party. The room had just been newly renovated (nice), all new amenities, etc.. The only sound that I heard at night, except for the occasional guest returning from dinner was the ocean.
I found the staff to be very accomodating and the manager Mr. Pearson upon learning that I was going to a birthday party at Mozambique Saturday night, arranged for complimentary transportation to and from the club so I would not have to drive after partying with my friends. There was some work going on when I awoke Friday morning but having been forewarned it did not bother me and frankly was not invasive by any means. I paid $170 a night for an awesome clean room with brand new high quality furnishings, a large flat panel television, a private deck with fantastic ocean views, and even a microwave. In Laguna Beach that is a drop-dead bargain. I have stayed at the Surf and Sand and paid $400 a night for a similiar view and smaller deck. I have also stayed at the Holiday Inn with no view for $225 a night, The other addition is that the management does not ding you for parking and internet access. It's all free, as well as complimentary juice, coffee, pastries, cereal in the morning. Not so everywhere else I have stayed.
Having lived in Laguna in the past, I travel frequently to visit friends and the town. When I can, I stay at the Laguna Riviera and highly recommend it to my friends because it is a bargain in a great location. Unfortunately, I cannot not always get in because weekends sell out pretty quickly.
I hope these comments add some balance and let others know how this traveler feels about the Lagina Riviera and what a great property it truly is.
