Fodor's Expert Review Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel

1 Ritz-Carlton Dr., Dana Point, California, 92629, USA Fodor's Choice

Combine the Ritz-Carlton's top-tier level of service with an unparalleled view of the Pacific, and you're in the lap of luxury at this resort. The gracious, contemporary-styled rooms have oversize HD-TVs, private balconies, and posh marble and mirrored bathrooms. Splurge for the Club Level, where the list of additional amenities is exhaustingly long. Ocean-view rooms are worth the expense; some have outdoor fire pits. Book a massage at the compact 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. Stroll down perfectly manicured trails to the popular white-sand beach.
