This has been one of our favourite hotels for a while having stayed a number of times. So whilst the location, staff and service is generally still very good, the rooms really need a refurb, particularly the bathrooms. I mean $1000 a night & still have to climb into the bath to have a shower - and try shaving or...

Following a long drive in from the city, Candice was truly amazing providing us with a warm welcome at check in. We look forward to making this our regular weekend getaway!

The hotel was very clean and the staff extremely helpful and outgoing. Check in was very easy and fast. We had dinners there and the food was terrific. One of the best Fillet's I have ever had. Very nice view of the ocean from the room and certain areas around the hotel.

I can't say enough about this hotel. In addition to the beautiful location, the staff at RC Laguna Niguel were wonderful. It's a great hotel for families, as they go out of their way to make your kids feel like royalty.

Had lunch there and the ocean views are just fantastic. We were there during a rain storm. The ocean was very rough. The Ritz dinning room has very large windows facing the Pacific ocean. The hotel sits on a very high bluff so the views are just unbelievable. The food was also very good but the view is what you...
