The service is great as expected, we only had a chance to have a light lunch and breakfast at the hotel, and those we good. Access to a very nice beach is convenient. The last time we were in Dana Point, we stayed at the Montage and we preferred that to the Ritz - the rooms were nicer and the...

We stay at Laguna Niguel for one night and enjoyed it a lot! The rooms are very nice. My friend felt the rooms where a touch feminine ... Anyhow the view if you have ocean view is amazing! We enjoyed our beer watching the sunset from our balcony so ver much! The whole atmosphere of the hotel is very nice!...

This hotel is so special that many of us have been coming for three decades; the grounds and overall aspect are close to perfect. This hotel is one of the first Ritz-Carlton properties in the group's modern iteration as it opened in 1984, and not planned as a five star hotel. So the bedrooms have the limitations of the era...

The best feature is the beach location. Hotel is a little dated compared to other Ritz-Carlton Hotels, but you can not beat the location. The Hotel provides beach chairs, water, and umbrella as well as a cart to take you up and down the hill. We ate on the premises all three days of our stay and not once were...

My husband and I just returned from a business trip where we stayed at the Ritz. The views here are stunning. The staff are very friendly. We did have a few problems with wi-fi and housekeeping, however once brought to the managers attention, he was most gracious in correcting these matters. I would and will stay there again.
