Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel Review

Take Ritz-Carlton's top-tier level of service coupled with an unparalleled view of the Pacific and you're in the lap of complete luxury at this oceanside resort. Rooms are well-appointed and tricked out with oversize plasma TVs, private balconies, and posh marble bathrooms. Splurge for the Club Level, where the list of included extra amenities is exhaustingly long. Ocean view rooms are worth the expense; some have outside fire pits. Book a massage at the cozy spa. Enjoy the panoramic views at Raya, where the focus is on Latin American coastal cuisine, or bone up on your wine knowledge at enoSTEAK, the property's steak house. Guests can stroll down perfectly manicured trails to the popular white-sand beach.

    Lovely Place

    From Check in to check out our stay was very nice. The level of professionalism, courtesy and wanting to fill your every wish was evident with each member of the staff.

    We had a Ocean Suite on the club floor. The view was spectacular and the room was nice. The offering's in club were good for snack's but not something you could satisfy your appetite with due to the limited hot dish offerings.

    Visiting Family, we did not have a chance to really check out the resort beyond the Fitness Center and the club lounge but all in all it is truly a place I would recommend.
