Overview

Spectacular coastline views
Resort fee does not include parking

A short walk from the Dana Point Marina (and about 58 miles south of downtown Los Angeles), the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa wins points with guests for its fantastic location and spectacular coastline views. But for some previous guests, this Marriott's ability to wow wanes once they looked beyond the vistas. Travelers are turned off by the resort's extra fees: the resort fee will run you an additional $25 daily, while $37 per day for valet parking adds up quickly (self-parking is not available). And though guests praise the seafood and American fare served on site at the Vue Restaurant, many say that room service here could use some improvement. That said, visitors are mostly pleased with the guest rooms and suites, which house pillow-top beds, flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. The Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort also boasts two heated outdoor pools, a fitness center and a full-service spa. What's more, this property participates in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program, meaning members can earn or pay with points here.
