All in all a great oceanview luxury hotel property in Ocean County. The views were fantastic, service generally top notch and the room luxurious. Try to get a terrace level room with a fire pit if possible, that was by far my favorite aspect of the room! While no private beach, the private access to Salt Creek Beach was perfect...

We knew going into our event that the property was very booked. We ended up being moved around the property which was fine, though I am sure our attendees would have appreciated more consistency. We had one day in which the 12 piece band for an evening reception was practicing. The hotel had to move us to another location after...

Wonderful property in the Ritz portfolio. Secluded with awesome views, yet close enough to great sight seeing for those quick little getaways. The staff was warm and responsive and the room was quite comfortable. When in OC, this is the place to stay.

I stayed at the property for a few days around the holiday season. It was a pleasant stay until housekeeping stole/lost an item inside my room. Then I was given the runaround and nasty attitude. Definitely ruined my stay and experience with the property. Here are the details, see for your own judgment: - I purchased an item from a...

the location on a cliff overlooking the ocean is awesome. You can watch surfers in action over lunch.. This is a vey nice hiking trail off the back of the hotel. The outdoor patio is a very fun place to watch some old surfer movies. The food is definately a notch above other hotel chains.

Would love to come back with my family! The location is magical with incredible sunsets at Salt Creek Beach. Lot of activities to enjoy nearby. Food has been fantastic and the only negative is that being South California the weather was cold and rainy and the common stress and room aisles were cold as they are quite open in some...

My two friends and I went to Dana Point to celebrate their 50th birthdays. We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel. I have never seen a more beautiful hotel with a picturesque view! It is on a bluff overlooking the Pacific. We selected a first level, ocean view room that had an outdoor fire pit on the patio. Could...

My Hubby and I love coming to the Ritz-Carlton, especially during the holidays! They always have the most amazing floral welcoming and beautiful holiday decorations! The past couple years we have enjoyed their impressive display of some of the most Classic, Limited Edition Surfboard collections and how they are tastefully placed throughout the hotel! We love enjoying a cocktail at...
