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!

We stayed here for a week in February 2017, using points we have with Diamond Vacation Resorts. There was no problem during the stay, the place was okay, but there is no beach, it is no spa, and it is not a resort. With whatever fairness is due, there is a lot of work being done on the property, so...

I of COURSE, read reviews prior to booking. I took it all in, needed a place to stay in the area and brought earplugs. It was perfectly fine. The staff was attentive and the check in process was simple. Yes, there is a train every now and then. Yes, there is a road (PCH) in front of the property..all that...

While Diamond Resorts has taken over this hotel, DR has a disclaimer on their site stating it will be 3 years before it is up to DR standards. Supposedly this hotel has had some renovations. If so, it was in early 90's. We stayed there recently. We were given a "renovated ocean view room". Again, reno in 90's. we were...

We arrived at the resort as the sun was setting. When checking in, I asked if we had an ocean view room and was told that they were only for owners. When we got to our room it was dark. We had a two bedroom unit. The room was a good size. The guest bedroom did not have a tv....

My husband and I used this as a timeshare stay while we attended a workshop in Dana Point. Location gives it the one point. They were up front about construction going on. They did not reveal that the elevator would be undergoing "maintenance" for half our stay. I am walking with a cane due to a knee injury. The front...

Cockroaches! It smelled like someone had spilled an entire bottle of lighter fluid when we entered our unit so we opened slider to air out. Queen bed - no window in bedroom.

We had a large one bedroom beachfront condo with a balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean for one week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a short drive to Old Town and the Mission area with shopping and restaurants and we even took a train ride to San Diego for the day.
