    We love hotel Joaquin! We will definitely be coming back. The hotel is beautiful, the staff are super friendly, yummy breakfast, the pool was warmed up, and they even set up an umbrella and chairs for you at the beach.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Hotel Joaquin is a meticulously clean, stunning replication of what living in Laguna Beach 75 years ago was like, in all it's bohemian elegance. The aesthetics, art, decor, music, period hardware/fixtures, furniture, terracotta tiling, art deco white dry wall, high ceilings with exposed beams, and high-end doors and windows combined with numerous patios, a bar with a view, outside dining, and beautiful gardens, grass areas, and a pool that cascade down the hill towards the ocean, we felt like we were in living Laguna as it was decades ago. This is not the place to come and watch television, but to savor the lack of relentless techno-chatter of our times. Instead, we enjoyed vinyl/LP's and turntables provided in the rooms. Hotel Joaquin is perched back and above some of Laguna's most stunning coves: Shaw, Diver's, Crescent Bay, and Emerald Bay in a beautiful residential neighborhood, while being only blocks from the Laguna Art Museum, Main Beach, and countless tide pools, shops and restaurants. It is also just a short drive from the stunning state park, Crystal Cove, to the north. And the staff could not have been more hospitable, kind, and appropriately available and communicative. We will be back.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The hotel is rather small and most rooms lack privacy since windows overlook common areas, hallways, etc. Moreover, during our stay, from the moment we checked in at 4pm until after 10pm the whole hotel, including the bar, pool, and even inside our hotel room was overwhelmed with the loud screaming and laughing of a large group of drunk, non-mask-wearing women in the hotel bar area. It is very disappointing that our stay was ruined by this out-of-control group. The hotel staff could have either control the behavior of its loud guests or (b) warn other guests that their stay would coincide with a large, loud and health-risky event so that guests can decide whether to cancel or reschedule their stay. Other than this, our ocean-view room was great but we could not use any other areas of the hotel due to the issue highlighted above.

    A great boutique hotel with ocean views. Helpful and friendly staff, great pool, and excellent decor. The record players in each room are a fun touch.

    Beautifully designed hotel with pool and view

    This hotel has been beautifully designed with clear attention to even small details. The front doors and all furniture is beautiful wood and each room is equipped with a record player and old records. We probably got the worst room in the back with a window to the street so it was a bit noisy and dark but I’d highly recommend the front rooms with balconies. The employees were very nice and we could text them at any time with requests. The morning coffee and scones were not great but otherwise the stay was wonderful
