If you want to have a special weekend go to the Ritz CARLTON Laguna Niguel and upgrade to the club lounge. It's totally worth it. Pennie and Diana and the ladies on the lounge really make it worth your while.

Another wonderful stay at a Ritz Carlton. Never disappointing and always exceeding expectations. There is nothing better than staying at a Ritz Carlton. Dinners were well planned and perfectly executed. The location was stellar with activities to be enjoyed by all. Finally, the views Oceanside were spectacular.

It was our 25th anniversary and we wanted to make it special. So we rented a suite (800+ sq. feet) on the club level where the Ritz provides breakfast, lunch and light dinner daily. And this was excellent food - not just warmed over pancakes and dehydrated scrambled eggs. Then, there is twice daily room (maid) service. The bathrooms (2)...

Our stay was wonderful, we really were made to feel at home. The whole experience was elegant and luxurious without being the least bit pretentious. Everyone was down to earth and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know us and listening to our stories. We were in Southern California following our youngest son's college baseball team. Everyone (servers, valet, bellmen)...

Club Level is a Nice Retreat to Relax and Recharge for a Weekend. The Lounge Always has Sports on and a Nice View for the Ladies. Out of Town Guests are Always Friendly and Eager for Local Knowledge. The Lounge Staff are About as Friendly as it gets!

The grounds and the ocean view were spectacular. I would recommend staying there just for the view. The staff was very pleasant and professional. The guest room bathroom was very dated. The marble was very distracting and made the floor very cold to walk on. The bathroom had too many mirrors as well. I was not impressed with the guest...

I stayed at this property for two nights. It is a great property. The club level staff is truly amazing. However, I was traveling with wife and two children and despite being platinum w ritz, and lots of availability (they tried to upsell me at front desk) I was put into a tiny room with one small chair. I just...

Perfect hotel and location for a romantic weekend. Highly recommend the rooms with the patio fireplace. Take note that this is an expensive hotel and every service is very expensive. If you plan to be dining/drinking/indulging at the hotel, expect to pay another $400/day. That being said, the quality of the food/drinks in the restaurants/bars and room service are stellar....
