Spent three nights with family. Staff had great attitude, but couldn't get over having to pay mandatory costs of $64.50 per day for valet and resort fees. A guest joined us for breakfast and his cost to park car for 1 hour was $20.00 plus tips. No concierge floor and $15 breakfast voucher covered less than 1/2 cost of breakfast....

Ocean room king had partial view of ocean in distance. Hideaway was unmade, had urine and blood stains on it. Staff didn't seem to want to accommodate a new mattress or roll-away until I offered to bring the mattress to the lobby. Everything at this hotel includes an 18% gratuity PLUS a service fee. No self-parking. Pool is super small...

The staff at this hotel have to collectively be the nicest group of people I have interacted with at a hotel. The resort was booked solid, yet everyone went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The quality and conditions of this resort were perfect, coupled with the natural beauty of the setting. I wish we could have stayed...

We earned a "free" night through Hotels.com and decided to spend the night in Dana Point. However, this "free" night did not include the mandatory valet parking at $37 per night or the mandatory $25 daily resort fee. It is a big resort with a nice view but is not comparable to most of the Marriotts we have stayed in...

Seriously, if the only option is valet, do not charge for it. I really loath when expensive, fancy 'resort' hotels charge for the stupidest stuff...like $35 to park PER DAY, $8 bottled water in the room, and the most ridiculous...the resort fee. The bed was clean, comfortable and I liked that the windows open. It had in-room coffee (which is...

I loved the location of this hotel within Dana Point. It's conveniently close to the harbor, restaurants, and places to walk that are amazing. We also visited the on-site bar and restaurant for tasty drinks. We were first given a room that didn't have a nice view overlooking a construction site, but we were given an ocean view when we...

It does offer a great view. Two pools, but neither are that larger so you are always very near others. Rooms are nice, but room fridge is packed full of items so you cannot use it for your own leftovers or drinks. Beds and shower great, but if you are only concerned with that you could get the same for...

Utter Disappointment. I was told that this property is rated an 8 of 9 on a scale of 1-9, by the reservations agent. This is absolutely not the truth. It is a worn, dirty hotel with outdated bathrooms and filthy carpet in common areas. I was also told at check-in that my room was being upgraded to an ocean view....

Ok, this is a little pricier than the mid-range hotels I usually stay at, but this was a bit of a splurge getaway anyhow, so why not? Rather large, well kept up property overlooking Lantern Bay Park and the ocean. You take a winding road up the hill, go between a couple of the resort's buildings, then pull up to...

Well this place was amazing, gym, meals, yoga, it had everything. I don't really think much more could be done. The service is great with fast valet, good service, and overall nice staff. I dropped a few things and three or four staff members came and helped me out. It was actually kind of embarrassing. Another time I was carrying...
