A super cute market place with great food! We had the island bowl with ahi tuna. Nice presentation, and tasted delicious! We took this delicious ahi bowl and grabbed a cocktail at the bar. Both were fabulous plus the view made it a nice experience. The Island bowl sits on a bed of bean spouts which I did not think I would like it that much, but it paired very well together. It also came with quinoa, carrots, cucumber, avocado and some mint leaves I do not know the name to. When I first saw it I thought how pretty and colorful the plate looked. Then after I mixed everything up and ate it, everything complimented each other so well!!! Its a small dish so you will not be full. Its a nice snack :) More...

The valet staff greeted us by name and walked us to the reception deck. Maybe it was because we looked out of place, maybe it was because that is what they do. It was a nice gesture either way.The beer at blu180 was half the price as the pool bar. We had dinner at Raya. They took diet restrictions seriously and remade a dish which caused a delay in our meal. The server explained the delay which was reassuring. Breakfast the next morning was at the marketplace.They provide beach chairs, umbrellas and towels. We walked down to the beach but took the shuttle back up the hill.Thanks to my Bonvoy status we were upgraded to an oceanview balcony room. It was so peaceful sitting on the balcony, watching the boats and surfers while listening to the ocean waves. Just wish I had felt well enough to watch the sunset. More...

For my 100th review, what better place to review other than "My Happy Place":  "The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel."  Perched atop a steep bluff overlooking "Salt Creek Beach," "The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel" is truly a sight to behold.  Not only is it a beautiful resort, but it has all of the amenities & services to match the breathtaking sights & sounds of the majestic Pacific Ocean below.  From the moment you enter the property & see the gold-plated fire hydrants (yes, really!), you know you have entered into a very special place.  The ladies & gentlemen of "The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel" (from the valet, the bell desk, the front desk, housekeeping, dining, the spa, boutique, beach butlers, security detail, and more), provide imepeccable personalized service, & have this down to an art.  They take great pride in attention to detail, & will remember your name, your preferences, special occasions, & more.  The word "No," is not in their vocabulary, & they truly go above-&-beyond to make every stay a perfect & memorable one.Celebrating a "once-in-a-lifetime" event?   Although the planning process can be stressful (it usually is), having the team from the Ritz-Carlton is like a dream...From the Sales Department, to the Special Events Department, to the Banquet Captains, to the Executive Chefs, Pastry Chefs, Audio/Visual, Florist, & more, they literally held my hand & helped to ensure that our special day was beautiful, memorable, & extra-extra special for us & our guests.   Whether you choose to stay for a weekend (be sure to splurge on an ocean view room or suite), or you just need a day to treat & spoil yourself, "The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel" is an escape that is unmatched...You will truly feel not only like family, but royalty every single time you are here. I really should be ashamed of how much time I spend here.....    ;) More...

Matt B. and I had our sixth wedding anniversary this weekend, and as we also had a fuckton of Marriott points, we decided to spend two nights at the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel.The property was nice, if not superfluously impressive. The hotel isn't new, and I thought parts of it could use a little revamping. The hallways felt slightly worn, and there were other areas that seemed like they needed to be repainted. For the most part, though, the public areas were lovely, and I especially enjoyed the abundance of flowers, which switched from all white to all pink between Friday night and Saturday morning. Our room was great, and I loved the small balcony overlooking the ocean. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean. Since the rack rate on this room was over $1,000, I guess I'll point out that the shower was a tub with a curtain--not a terrible thing, but I have a more attractive shower set-up at home. I was a fan of the fluffy bathrobe, though. I'd rate it one of my favorite hotel bathrobes.Where the Ritz set itself apart was with its wonderful service. We let the hotel know in advance that we were celebrating (angling hard for that upgrade), and they decorated our room with a balloon and a banner and fancy chocolate-covered strawberries. They also upgraded us--from the basic room we booked with points and very low status--to a fabulous ocean view room, which totally made the trip. We also got 2:00 check-out on Sunday. Everyone we dealt with on staff was professional and warm, and we had a thoroughly pleasant stay. My only complaint on the service front has to do with policy, not staff--the $50 valet parking and the $50 resort fee felt rather excessive.Arguably, the best part was the easy access to Salt Creek Beach, now my favorite beach in California, with warm water and a calm crowd. The Ritz provided beach chairs and umbrellas as well as a shuttle up and down from the hotel for when we were feeling lazy. When we were not feeling lazy, the walk was very nice. I'd recommend taking a night walk along the beach and the hotel grounds.I don't know if I would've been happy paying $700 for one of the rooms without an ocean view, but our Ritz-Carlton experience was pretty idyllic. If you're looking to treat yourself to a special occasion getaway, you might consider a trip to Laguna Niguel. More...

That saying, "you get what you pay for"! Amazing experience from being to end. The moment my door opened in valet we were greeted with a champagne offer to being escorted to the check-in then to being offer again champagne (finally giving in).Everyone around was so genuine and helpful. The bellman escorted us to the room also gave us a mini tour. In part of your stay, you have shuttle service to and from the beach as well as a butler service which includes beach towels, chairs and body boards upon request. Both pool areas had ice cold infused water, sunblock and tanning available. Smaller pool feels a lot more private where as the larger pool was actively busy. More...

I'm writing this Review to give my compliments to Meghan who works at the front desk and with guests at check in. My mother Michele Wagoner works for the Westin In vacation sales and actually won sales person of the year last year and many others ! (I love to brag about her :) ) We were thrilled when Marriott and Westin merged as we would have access to the Laguna Ritz Carlton with our points and hot rate when possible . Regardless of how much a hotel invests in money and advertising, i believe the real secret to success lies in the staff who meet the needs of guests on a daily basis. Sometimes These efforts of front-line employees are overlooked by hotel guests. I wish to acknowledge Meghan at the front desk for contributing to my wonderful experience at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna. If it wasn't for her i would have definitely not had as enjoyable of a stay. I hoping she gets rewarded for a job well done for perpetuating a positive experience for me and I'm sure for future guests as well. I have been having a very tuff last 6 months my house is under total renovation. It has finally come to the point that I had to vacate my home for the flooring to be replaced. Right when I was asked to relocate I knew I would be coming to the Ritz-Carlton. I called ahead to ask for early check in as I had a meeting at 4pm.  Meghan answered the line and informed me  the room was not available. She told me it could possibly be until 4pm but would search for another availability. She then asked for my cellphone number so she could call me when my room was available.  I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call back very quickly from Meghan telling me my room was ready. I told her I appreciated this more than she knew. She did not have to work to find me a room available she could have continued on with many other tasks I'm sure she had. I said any room was fine and actually would have been okay with a down graded if there was one. Almost anything and everything that could go wrong for me lately has been. When I checked in i was greeted by the same Meghan who I had spoke with on the phone. We went through all the specifics and at the very end she informed me that instead of being in a garden view room I was now in a executive suite pool view. This was a very very pleasant surprise. I'm not sure if she had anything to do with the upgrade but I also appreciate this immensely as well. I have also had great encounters with the bell hop, Kevin in room service, housekeeping, and a very nice girl at the valet ( i have forgotten her name) but was working upon my check in on Monday afternoon. My home renovation will unfortunately still be going on longer. I was not sure of my length of stay and unfortunately did not book enough nights. Tomorrow and Thursday night I will be having to switch to Marriott laguna cliffs. I feel much more secure knowing I have a great hotel  that can be my home away from home that goes above and beyond to cater to their guests needs.  I will definitely be returning as soon as possible.

I'm writing this review as I sit in my divine bed at the Ritz in Laguna Niguel. It's not a frequent occurrence for me to take time out of my day to write a review, however, my experience at the hotel demands no less. I arrived at the hotel for the weekend and was warmly greeted by one of the hotel associates in the lobby prior to even walking up to the front desk. She kindly asked my name and if we were celebrating any special occasion.. by the time we walked up to the desk they greeted my girlfriend and I by name and wished us a happy anniversary whilst thanking us for choosing the property to celebrate. What came next was something I never expected... After finding out it was our anniversary the hotel had champagne ready for us at the counter. From there, we arrived in our room only to get a knock at the door a few minutes later from room service with a beautiful tray of chocolate covered strawberries on an incredible display and a bottle of their house sourced cabernet and a personalized note from Grace and Kristy, the two FD agents that checked us in. We were touched to say the least and so impressed at how personal they made our stay from the beginning. At 1pm we set out to sit by the pool for a casual lunch and then to the beautiful beach located below the bluff side hotel.  We enjoyed impecable service at the Dana Pool (there are two pools at the hotel) and a delicious lunch. We returned to our room after our time at the beach and pool only to find another surprise waiting for us - two Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel hats in a bag sitting on our desk with another note wishing us a happy anniversary. We elected to have dinner at Raya, the properties ocean view restaurant located on the lobby level of the hotel. Immediately upon checking in with the hostess we were wished a happy anniversary and then again by the friendly wait staff. Famed chef, Ricardo Sandoval, who is the head chef of Raya does not disappoint. The flavors were unique and robust with a fun latin twist and the serene ambiance made it the perfect dinner spot. After indulging in some fine cuisine, we were surprised yet again with a beautiful decorated dessert plate and personalized anniversary message. The thoughtfulness of the hotel and its staff is beyond compare. We arrived back at our room at around 10pm and melted into the divine beds falling asleep after watching a few episodes of a show on showtime internet TV which is offered complimentary to the guests (HBO as well). When we woke up this morning we were surprised yet again... the hotel has removed the charge from lunch the day before as another kind and thoughtless gesture. I am yet to leave the property but already discussing celebrating valentines and our next anniversary here. This hotel should serve as a model for all other 5 star resorts. I'm beyond grateful and looking forward to my next visit to the property. More...

I stayed at the Ritz from Aug. 8th to Aug. 10th to attend a wedding.  The hotel is older, but absolutely beautiful.  The service from the time I drove up all the way to check out was impeccable.  Our car was unloaded and parked.  We checked in and by the time we were done with check in our luggage was already headed to our room.  The man who brought our luggage explained everything about the room from how to use the remote, to the area the coffee was kept. We went to the pool for a day and the bartender, the pool waitress, the pool greater where the towels are, were all outstanding human beings, very personable and made sure that we were all taken care of.  (at the pool we had a party of approx. 10 ppl).  We went to the ocean for a day.  We started with the shuttle and stopped to get chairs.  All of the attendants there were amazing.   Our chairs were carried to the ocean, and the attendants also made sure we had water, towels and umbrellas.  At first,  I thought the price might have been high, but after the time we spent there, and the way we were treated, we cannot wait to go back for another stay.  I cannot say enough about how happy we are about the visit.  Thank you to the Ritz Carlton and the high standard of employees you employ!

This fun little coffee shop is super accommodating and an easy spot to stop with my kiddo. He had an open-faced peanut butter and banana sandwich with honey and coconut. His sandwich was so good, he talked about it quite a bit.They can make the wraps into gluten free sandwiches and are very helpful in trying to keep you from becoming sick. I enjoyed their coffee drinks and their juices. On my husband's recommendation-avoid the burrito. I'd also avoid the sweet potato hash plate. While pretty, both lacked flavor. The hash was also in a weird bowl that just didn't work for it. My husband had the steak and eggs, they were fine, but also commented that the bowl made it difficult to eat. More...

We've throughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are beautiful and so comfortable. Our ocean view was incredible.They're super accommodating to the gluten free eater. They don't carry gluten free bread at the pool, but when we asked for the turkey club wrap to be made into a gf sandwich they sent a runner to another kitchen to get the bread. The sandwich was legit the best gf club sandwich that I have ever had. Their cob salad is also great!Leslie in the front lobby is the most amazing person! She greeted us and told us to wait around the corner for her and then came with a huge treasure chest! It was filled with toys! My three-year-old didn't realize that he could pick out a toy. But when she asked what toys he liked he said cars. So she made him a fantastic gift basket. He was thrilled! Then she came to our room with three toy cars! He could not believe it! He didn't even want to leave the room after that because he wanted to play with his cars. He spent the rest of his stay carrying his cars around the resort. This entirely made his stay.This is an excellent resort for families. They're super accommodating with food allergies and restrictions. They have beach butlers to help you get your Littles set up on the beach safely. They take the entire hassle out of beach visits. Forget your sunscreen or sunglasses? They've got everything for you.The service is really top notch and I cannot wait to visit again. More...

What a truly epic experience my wife and I had here for our 20th wedding anniversary.  From the second we stepped out of our car to the moment we left we felt like A-list celebrities.   We received an e-mail a few days before check-in from Nasime in guest relations asking what our visit was for and if we needed anything.  I just mentioned it was our 20th.  Nasime went above and beyond to make this the perfect vacation for us.To start we arrive at valet and I hand over my keys.  They tell me to leave my luggage and it'll be brought to my room.  We walk in the beautiful lobby to find a line for check-in.  Somebody walks up to us asking if we're Mr. and Mrs. D.  After saying yes we're old "Oh, you don't wait in lines, follow me.  Happy anniversary, here, drink some champagne while we check you in".  Wow, WTF?!  People are looking at us wonder what the heck is going on.  After being checked in away from the suckers in line he escorts us to our room.  In our room is a GIANT 20th anniversary balloon, red heart balloons, and a LOVE balloon.  Also a gift bag with baseball hats, bath bomb, and hand written note.  Few minutes later a knock at the door and we're given enormous chocolate covered strawberries.So far so good and we only just arrived!  I booked the ocean view room with private balcony.  Gorgeous perfect view of the ocean with nice sized balcony.  Room was also large with dual vanity, large tub/shower with tons of water pressure, and separate room for toilet.  Bed was decent but a bit squishy for my taste.Every inch of this property is beautiful.  Easy access to miles of trails up and down the coast.  Just be warned, it's STEEP.  Luckily you're at the Ritz so if you want they'll shuttle you down to the beach and set up your chairs and umbrellas for you.  I though just went for a walk while panting hard from being so out of shape.  All around the grounds are chairs to sit at to enjoy the view.  There's even a giant fire pit.First night we dined at enoSteak which had to be not only the most expensive meal I've ever had but the most delicious meal.  Truly amazing experience which I'll write separate about.  We ate at Raya the next day for Sunday brunch, Sunday dinner, and Monday breakfast.  Also excellent and I'll write separate out them.  Every single meal was 5 star perfect in both service and food. Only negative experience was at their outdoor bar 180blu.  Ridiculously priced disgusting cocktails with zero inspiration.  The cocktails at the Ritz need a serious improvement.  A $20 drink shouldn't taste like 100% grapefruit juice with bottom shelf liquor.When checking out you can just do it through the TV and then text the valet and your car will be waiting.  When leaving Nasime somehow got flagged that we were on our way out and she met us in person and thanked us for our stay.  When leaving we found another gift waiting for us in our car, a journal and a keychain.  I was also given a card for free valet, 15% off restaurants, and 15% off the gift shop.  I'll definitely be back to eat!Seriously, if you have a special occasion check this place out.  Even if you just eat at a restaurant and walk around the grounds you're in for a treat.  I thought it was going to be a stuffy overpriced hotel but honestly even though it was 100% capacity they made us feel like we were the only guests the entire visit.  Was worth every penny even though it was a whole lot of pennies!  Thank you Nasime for making it such a great experience!

The lobby is beautiful, with groups of fresh flowers, including roses, that are breathtaking. The rooms are elegant and spacious, and the bathrooms are marbled, with two sinks. I had an ocean front room, with an outdoor, gas-lit fire pit. Sitting outside at night, listening to the waves crash, and enjoying the fire with a glass of fine Cabernet Sauvignon is heaven on Earth. The staff is courteous and helpful, with efficient but not overbearing service. The grounds are immaculately maintained. I have stayed at this Ritz-Carlton several times, and the experience is always luxurious, rich, and completely enjoyable. More...

I have been to the Ritz in Marina Del Rey, San Francisco and this one. This location has a similar feel to the French Riviera, there is just something about it that is very exclusive. I especially liked the beautiful flower display that lavishly greet you when you first enter the lobby and that gracefully drape the hall ways as you go into the dining areas. Very very Lovely. One Last thing to note, if you are at Agate Beach, Pirates Beach, One Thousand Step beach or anywhere along PCH you can catch the Free Trolley on PCH and it drops you off at the Ritz and brings you back. It runs daily. Check the picture of the posted times. I took it during this trip, and the inside of the trolley is all beautiful wood work. I think you'll enjoy the experience. More...

I went into this location with my gf while we were visiting SoCal. As soon as we arrived at the front valet, I let them know we were weren’t guests but came for dining and they treated us as though we were and gave us same valet and treatment. Once we were sat the staff was extremely professional, but still down to earth and personable. Dean was our server and was extremely attentive and made incredible recommendations. I let him know that the reason I had brought my girl there was because I had an awesome experience in Cayman Islands and wanted her to taste their amazing Pina Colada. Dean brought over our first round and he had come back to ask how it was. I let him know it didn’t exactly match the soft served style and ingredients that I had in Cayman but was still extremely good. With little reaction aside from a smile he walked away. About 20 minutes later came back and let me know they had called the Cayman Islands location and got the exact ingredients they use over there at their tiki bar brought me another one on the house. THEN the manager stopped by and asked how it was and brought over a ritz note sheet with all the ingredients written down so that I could make it at home. They were awesome and I can honestly say they topped every restaurant experience in thoughtfulness and service I’ve had. This was about two weeks ago and felt it would be wrong to not leave a full description of the service and experience. Thanks Dean! And tell your manager awesome job and thank you as well. More...

Staying at this hotel was on my bucket list simply because of the location and views. I would’ve paid $1000 for the one night I did stay just to sleep in a hammock at 180blu, as long as bottomless chef’s grilled cheese sandwiches were included. What a view!
