Simply amazing! Views and exceptional service makes this location the place to be in the Dana Point area. Make sure you get your parking stub validated and the parking is only $5 bucks. If you are smart you can walk down on the shore with your sweety on the beach, then swing in for a drink on your way back to your car.

I'm not one who is drawn to large hotels so my experience is limited. However, that being said, last night I attended an intimate wedding ceremony/reception that was held at 180blu. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous; the wine was chilled and served in a lovely glass, the live music was very well thought out and quiet enough that you could still have a conversation and the sushi was delicious. All of these factors made for a great night. However, it was the impeccable service that we received from Bianca that I wanted to point out. Our party of 12 was well taken care of for the 3 hours that we occupied a large table outside on the patio. When we moved inside for cake and coffee she followed us and continued to provide top notch service. Feeling well tended to made everyone's night even that more special. Kudos to you Ritz Carlton for the training you provide to your staff and also for hiring someone as personable as Bianca. She really nailed it!

My boyfriend and I went to have a drink and watch the sunset. We walked in and about 3 servers saw us walk in, we sat ourselves and waited for someone to bring us a drink menu and a regular menu. All 3 servers walked passed us and not once were we acknowledge, not once did anyone say hello or even some one will be right with you. However we sat patiently waiting for about 15 minutes until someone finally approached us asking what we wanted to drink. We asked for a few drink options and the server said no we don't have that or we can't make that drink. I have never had to wait so long and had such horrible service anywhere. This kind of service was not expected out of a place with such high reputation of being 5 star. We expected the standard to be higher.

Drinks and food were certainly expensive, so I think I'd recommend going somewhere else for dinner and drinks first, then come over to 180blu just before sunset... enjoy the view and a drink or two more.

Absolutely the best, most romantic place to watch a sunset!
