A Great Classy Place
An amazingly wonderful place to stay... They did not mention the Valet Parking Fee nor the Resort Fee until check-out...

The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, Dana Point
The hotel has incredible customer service. I do have some issues on the following items.I found the water drained very slowly in the bathroom sinks. The drawer on the nightstand was broken. And one of the overhead lights was out. It may sound picky,but when staying in a 5 star hotel,I expect to have those things fixed before a guest would stay. I would stay at the hotel again because of the outstanding customer service.

This is a beautiful hotel on the cliff at Dana Point. We were thrilled to have an ocean view room with a balcony and left our door open at night to sleep to the sounds of the surf- it was wonderful! Hotel is beautiful with stunning views from rooms, restaurants and work out room. Walk to and from the beach was a good workout; a free shuttle is provided if you want. Nice that water, beach towels, chairs and umbrella are all complimentary for guests. We enjoyed watching the surfers and swimmmers, who started in the early morning and stayed until sunset. Will look forward to returning in the future.

Luxury at Its Best
We went for a wedding there and stayed overnight. The resort is incredible. We've been to other of their locations but this was by far our favorite. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The room was very nice with an incredible view of the ocean, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The venue for the wedding was perfect as was the reception. We had ordered the filet mignon and fish and they were both delightful. How they managed to get the steak medium rare with 350 guests to serve was awesome. We look forward to going back for a weekend stay soon.
