U.S. News Review

When booking a room at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, guests expect to receive superb service. And that's what they get. But what they are shocked to find is a breathtaking ocean view and gorgeous grounds just northwest of Dana Point Marina. If you need any help reaching inner peace, the well-reviewed spa is happy to accommodate you. And this is no ordinary Ritz: In addition to the standard pool-tennis-fitness center combination, this property has access to several area golf courses and some excellent surfing waves. Plus, guests can explore the local environment above and below the sea with expert naturalists on eco-adventures organized by the hotel. As for dining, you can satiate your appetite at one of six on-site eateries. And when it comes time to call it a day, you won't be disappointed with the accommodations. Previous visitors love the serene pastel blue and cream decor in the guest rooms, as well as the private balconies and state-of-the-art technology (LCD flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and high-speed Internet access) housed within.
