Adequate. Seemed to be less people up front working in the lobby this year, and same three people every day. One was clearly new, another was older and simply not in the right job to be helpful. Never received the schedule of activities (or saw activities), and when asked about it I got a hard time being told it was...

We found out this property was purchased by Diamond as part of a foreclosure but with that said, Diamond is working to bring it up-to-date. Personally, I'd like to see some newer furniture but be assured the televisions are fine. A real positive of our stay was the great attitude at the front desk. The staff is very helpful &...

This property has not been owned by the current owners very long so hopefully they continue to update it. It is in a very conveinent location dirrectly across the street from the beach but it is on a busy highway and you have to walk down a ways to cross it. It has underground parking and there is a Costco...

This 4 story resort is right on Pacific Coast Highway. All that separates you from the great Pacific are the road, the train tracks, a narrow parking lot (also part of the oceanside bike path), and some rocks. The suites have been refurbished fairly recently. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath. One bedroom has a king-size bed, the...

This property was purchased by Diamond International as part of a foreclosure. Facility is quite dated and in need of an overhaul. For some reason my wife and I were assigned a one bedroom with a handicapped equipped bathroom. I called the front desk upon check in and was told that the facility's one bedrooms were all "handicapped". I asked...

I commend Elizabeth Santiago at the Front Desk and Ernest the Manger for their friendly and professional service. From helpful tips from Donavon at the front desk to the maintenance gentleman to Ellen who smiled and shook my hand by the activity center as I was leaving for the parking garage, everyone I met on the staff was friendly, professional...

We own about 3 mo of Diamond Resort Time, and have been delighted with the luxury and attention to detail at Diamond properties in the US and abroad. We were prepared for construction on the property as we had received notices that there was construction on the property. Even with upgrades, this property is going to be pretty basic. The...

Definitely going back to Riviera Beach Resort, Dana Point, California someday. Great location, staff, service, amenities, views, etc. Was my first time ever being in California, and it was a great first impression.

We had a very nice time at the Riviera Beach Spa! It was clean and everyone was very friendly. The pool and spa area was well kept! Our sunset views were spectacular! The parking was confusing at first, but fine after we got a map!
