My wife and I spent 5 nights at the Laguna Marriott as part of a payoff trip with my company. They always put us at nice resorts and this resort did not disappoint. The rooms were nothing fancy, basic room, ours faced the pool on first floor although we could not see much due to the vegetation but that really...

Although the property is aging – it is being kept up fairly well. The location looks awesome. Difficult walk down steep hill to the beach – difficult 118 steps to the harbor. Great scenery facing the ocean as well as from a boat looking back to the property!

This is a very nice hotel in a great location with a beautiful view. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the service was very good. It was a tight squeeze as we were put in a King Room with a pull out that was the size of a twin and there were 4 in our family. One of...

We visited this hotel with 3 kids under 5... It was fantastic! I have not been to this hotel in almost 10 years... It has been remodeled to be more "family" friendly. (Although, there is a separate wing with a 'quiet' pool if you need a break from the kiddos - or traveling without.) Best features: 1) Everything was clean...
