While in CA for a bridal shower with my daughters, we decided to splurge and stay at the Ritz. The view is breathtaking. A beautiful wedding occurred outside our window. We slept with the door open listening to the sound of the ocean. Breakfast at Raya was delicious and worth the cost. The pool and spa were both of excellent quality. Room service was expensive (what do you expect?) but delicious. This is my first choice for a SoCal luxury hotel. Will return!

The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel Resort is where I chose to celebrate my birthday; far enough away from home (in Marina del Rey - about 60 miles south); and close enough for a quick 2 night luxurious stay.

Felita's Favorite Things and Tips:

* Talk to Guest Relations when they email you your confirmation and let them know what you're doing, anything special, celebrations, etc. I connected with Carly Kinsman, and she was utterly fantastic! A great professional!

* Incomparable Ocean Views and personal fire pit overlooking the perfect sweep of the beach. Imagine waking up to this in the morning - it's a perfect way to unplug and be one with the ocean, the sky, nature.

* Beautiful surroundings energize me and relax me. It's elegant and gorgeous but also comfy and relaxed.

* If you're a Marriott Rewards owner, you're in luck. They are Marriott-affiliated, and you can utilize points and cash for your rooms. Definitely the highest point tier level, but really truly worth it.

* The views from 180blu and Raya restaurant/lounges are ridiculous, esp. on a sunny day. At night, 180blu has live screen surf movies projected onto the wall, the cityscape is to your right, and the ocean waves are just below.

* I love knowing that all the restaurants/food places, all the service at the Ritz Carlton is meant to be exceptional. They strive for excellence always and it shows.

* To the right of our room, there was a spectacular Indian wedding going on - with their fantastic colorful saris and beautiful draped canopies decorated with flowers. It was such fun people watching from our balcony.

* I got the best Facebook profile pics standing on our balcony ledge!! Winning!

* Romantic stay with my man. Perfect place for snuggles, cozyness, guitar playing, chilling out and just being together.

* Exhale

Room Tip: I loved our Ocean View Fire Pit room -- #1506 -- the best views are from here. You get the landscap...

….what more can I say? OK, its at Dana Point, so the view is amazing. It´s a gorgeous property. Nothing much to say about the service, its typical high class service. The funnest part for me, honestly, was sitting on the balcony at night and seeing rabbits running around on the cliffs.

This resort is absolutely magnificent. The view from my balcony was just amazing. I really wish that I would've spent a full week here. I didnt think much of the resort when I saw it online but it was really great. Some problems I had with it was the halls are very loud with wedding party's on the weekend. The food here was very overpriced for the quantity. But other than that everything was perfect. This resort deserves a hell of a lot more credit. Extremely beautiful, stay here if you are planning a trip to California.

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton because we wanted a guaranteed relaxing and comfortable stay. The service was excellent but the accommodations were cramped and not the typical grand, elegant feel of a Ritz Carlton. We heard people next to us and above us so we didn't feel like we were in a luxery hotel.

The beach was beautiful and the excellent, attentive service of the staff that brought chairs and umbrellas to the beach was appreciated.

Room Tip: Try to get a top floor room that doesn't connect to another room to reduce noise.

This hotel is beautiful, and the service was excellent. Really nice fitness facility and salon, and the yoga and Pilates classes (held outside!) were great. Only two complaints - no fan in the bathroom, so it got extremely hot in there, and not enough lighting in the room. Minor issues, but for the price we paid, it was annoying. I would go back here in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Our room was at the end of the hall near a common area, which magnified the sound. A few times it go...

location-location-location. . . this is a special property on a spectacular piece of California coastline. staff is very friendly and helpful beginning from the time you pull up to the front door. check-in was quick and easy. rooms are nice - not over the top but clean, enough room to spread out and work and still have a place to relax. great pools, the beach and ocean, nice bar and restaurants. this place has it all. great place to go read a book and unwind, perhaps do a little surfing, or simply walk on the beach. great place for business or romance.

Room Tip: ocean views are tremendous
