Loved the refreshing style and decor of the room! While we did not have an ocean view, the room itself made up for it. We stayed only one night but had a chance to explore the hotel and grounds and enjoy the pool for a short time. Didn't care for the pool area as it was surrounded on three sides...

What a lovely place to stay! Great rooms, incredible views, excellent restaurants and exceptional service. I can't say enough wonderful things about Lucinda in concierge. She handled every aspect of entertaining for my husband's company. The restaurant recommendations were first rate and she arranged for everything, even before we arrived at the hotel. Just wonderful! Also one of the best...

Stayed here with family. Gorgeous location and great service. Very family friendly. Room service food was fine; weekend brunch was average but the service was commendable. The beach was nice - a slight trek with stroller but there was pretty much nonstop (free) tram rides between the beach and hotel. Would definitely return.

While i lacked a see view i could enjoy a pleasant little outside patio. Obviously not the best room but nice enough. The fitness room is incredible with a view on the bay that is simply spectacular.

Love the Ritz-Carlton! Pros: excellent place for a gorgeous ocean view. Located along a beautiful (and long) walking path overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Great for a romantic and semi-active getaway. Cons: The greeting staff was excellent but a little too much "breathing down your neck" for my personal taste. Tips: Visit the cafe/coffee shop downstairs for breakfast. Great selection of...

My two best friends from childhood and their wives meet here for our annual eat out and meet. This place is so pretty I almost booked a room before my friends showed up. Of course my wife talked me out of it. The dining experience was wonderful. The view of the Pacific was just as spectacular. Can't wait to return.

I stayed here for three nights in May. The rooms are beautiful and beautifully maintained. The view to the Pacific is absolutely spectacular as the hotel sits atop Dana Point. Every meal was delicious-even the boxed lunches were good. Plenty of beach to walk and great beach access.
