Last week after surprising my husband with his 50th birthday party of friends, I then added to his evening surprise with an overnight stay at The Ritz in Laguna Niguel. The idea was for a memorable day together, this time without kids. We were pleased at the service and appreciative efforts taken as we celebrated his day. We were able...

First visit to this Ritz and the location is breathtaking. Request Ocean view room as it is worth waking up to that view. Many choices of activities from Eco friendly to surf lessons and a great fitness center and spa. Rooms are on the small side so traveling with a family of four is snug but the location is worth...

Breathlessly gorgeous. One of my favorite time to come is around the Christmas holiday. The decoration is dreamy. Five Stars all the way from dining to services. Love the grounds and my morning walk around the property. One of my top place to stay when I'm in SoCal.

As is evident from other reviews, this beautiful property sits atop a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We had a third floor room overlooking the ocean and the views were amazing. The property has two swimming pools, three restaurants, a snack bar and beach access. The property is self contained and you need transportation into town, which is a positive...

This Ritz Carlton has everything you want in a luxury vacation. The service is attentive and friendly. The location is breathtaking. You can spend your entire visit walking around the property and soaking in the views of the ocean. Try outdoor yoga overlooking the water...incredible!

Stayed here a few times and have yet to be disappointed. Attentive staff, comfortable rooms and an overall prime location in Southern CA (South Orange County) for business or leisure. Salt Creek Beach Park is below property and one of the best beaches in the county. Only drawback for The Ritz Laguna Niguel (which might work as a positive) is...

We stayed here for a conference and just found the property and the staff to be exceptional.

The hotel is perched on a bluff overlooking the ocean. A beautiful beach with easy access to swim, surf or just walk along. Our room wagon the third floor facing the ocean and had a lovely view.

We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel as part of a conference group that was occupying the whole hotel. The resort sits on a cliff overlooking the Pacific and the views from most of the public spaces are breathtaking. We used to live in the area and there are not many hotels that can offer those views and access. The...

We stayed here for a few days to attend a conference - and extended our stay an extra night because we found it so enjoyable. We had a ground floor garden room with a patio and a fireplace.
