Great hotel and service. We would visit again. The property is very beautiful and the staff is great. I think that the club level lounge needs new furniture but overall everything was great! We were there for a charity event and it is a perfect place for that type of event, the garden was et up for a silent auction...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a conference. The room had a small balcony that was overlooking the ocean where we could enjoy the great view, including the occasional whale sighting. It is also an easy walk down to the beach from the hotel. We had dinner at enosteak at the hotel which was great, and also...

I had the pleasure to stay at the Ritz for a conference. The location is beautiful, rooms and common space are well appointed and staff super attentive. Banquet/ conference space was good, only wish for more outlets or charging stations

Such a wonderful long weekend at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel. The fantastic views of the Pacific are well complemented by the terrific staff. We immediately felt at home as we were greeted warmly by Justine at the front desk. She definitely went above and beyond to assure we enjoyed our stay throughout the rainy Presidents' weekend, and made an extra...

Had dinner in two different locations on property and was pleased. Having Dean as a server was fantastic. However, 1) was charged $ 150 for dry cleaning a suit coat,...

Excellent location and great staff. The sunsets are not to be missed. I would recommend for business or pleasure. Pricing is at a preimum which is not surprizing for Ritz-Carlton. Dana Point and Laguna are wonderful communities to visit.

Disclaimer - I travel a lot and stay in various types of places so I base my evaluations on a sliding scale.
