This continues to be our favorite place to stay. Service is impeccable and the staff is welcoming and friendly. We have been away from Laguna for some years and our return was greeted as if we had never left. We look forward to many more visits to the Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel.

I stayed at this property for two nights. It is a great property. The club level staff is truly amazing. However, I was traveling with wife and two children and despite being platinum w ritz, and lots of availability (they tried to upsell me at front desk) I was put into a tiny room with one small chair. I just...

Perfect hotel and location for a romantic weekend. Highly recommend the rooms with the patio fireplace. Take note that this is an expensive hotel and every service is very expensive. If you plan to be dining/drinking/indulging at the hotel, expect to pay another $400/day. That being said, the quality of the food/drinks in the restaurants/bars and room service are stellar....

Just the most perfect location perched on a high bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean & the view is quite literally to die for, every day the majestic crashing waves crash on Salt Creek Beach. A great hotel for families & also business. Lots of wedding take place here as it is just so incredibly beautiful. Stay in Club, the Ritz...

Staying at the house (checking out today) and loving it. The grounds are well maintained and it is beautiful to walk around even when it's not so warm out. If you're not a beach lover, don't worry- there are paths around the beach that are gorgeous. The rooms are clean. Here are a few tips: 1. Bring a good camera...

Beautiful location, resort, and amenities, with friendly and accommodating staff. Food at Raya was delicious but would be careful with timing, much more leisurely than I would have expected. All things considered, I believe it’s everything one would expect from a Ritz Property.

Amazing experience! Everything was perfect, including the breathtaking views and hospitality of the staff. We love the fact you are on the beach making it ideal for families. The entire culture at this Ritz bends over backwards to make sure customers are elated. I highly recommend this hotel and absolutely will be going back.
