My husband and I visited here the week of nov. 10. We had an aewsome time here just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view. The elephant parade was happening here at the time which was a real treat. And we thoroughly enjoyed listening to the blue moonies in the lounge on saturday night. I would highly recommend this hotel....great room, 2 nice pools with jacuzzi, and a wonderful view.

The property is beautiful. Staff is outstanding. We too were upgraded at arrival. Beds were very comfortable. Dining room and room service was outstanding. They serve a to die for Rueben. The best part was the spa. Had a deep tissue message by Angela Rafferty and had to be the best one yet. I normally prefer a male and initially was disappointed I had a female but she knew her technique and was outstanding. I would fly to Laguna again just to have a massage by Angela.If you have the time you will not be disappointed to schedule a massage with Angela. She is the best. Wish she were located in Arizona. I would be there once a week.

Room Tip: Ocean view

The room was great. I was upgraded to a room with a balcony and ocean view. The ocean is a bit of a distance away, but there are no building obstructing the view to the ocean. Just a park with trees.

The bar was great and had a great view and patio to enjoy your beverage and food of choice.

The bed was so comfortable and makes you not want to get up.

The Laguna Cliffs Marriott is a great stay. There was a surfing contest just a couple of blocks away and a good golf course close by. I thought that the pricing was reasonable given the location and property. Mandatory parking and resort fees were too much.

We tried to visit the lobby art exhibit which benefits the Asian elephants today. Two security guards told us that we could not go in because we were not registered guests. Our friends who are guests there were waiting for us in the lobby. Ridiculous and rude treatment! . It is a lovely place but over the top stuffy. Won't ever stay there!

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, the elephant parade auction was a private event and the organization that was putting on this event had their security team assisting in keeping this event private. We apologize if you felt that our staff poorly handled the situation. Your opinion matters greatly to us and your satisfaction is of upmost importance. As you will read from our past reviews, we usually receive many fine compliments from our guests and we hope you will look upon this incident you experienced as an exception and not the rule. We certainly hope you'll reconsider giving Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa another opportunity in the future to restore your faith.

After paying 32 bucs for mandatory valet parking and 20 bucs resort fee got sent to a remote spot in the parking lot to smoke a cig. Understand california is kinda anti-everything but thought this was like being sent to the principals office. No smoking on room balconies either. This hotel should prob advertise this feature or warn depending on who your client is

Thank you for your feedback. Marriott is committed to providing its guests and associates with a smoke-free environment and is proud to boast one of the most comprehensive smoke-free hotel policies in the industry. Since its introduction in 2006, the policy has been implemented in more than 2,500 properties throughout the United States and has received praise from our guests. Although smoking is not permitted within our hotel, guests are permitted to smoke in a “designated” area away from the building. Our resort’s non-smoking information is printed on both the key packet you received at check-in as well as being posted on all sliding glass doors within each guestroom. Thank you for your understanding. We hope that this did not pose an inconvenience to you during your stay.

This was the perfect stay. We went for my boyfriends birthday and it was such an incredible view and centrally located to the harbor and delicious food. We rode bikes around all weekend and ate awesome food. We would definitely visit again. Only disappointment was the restaurant "The Vue" inside the hotel. I will say we ate appetizers upstairs, behind the bar and sat outside. BEST calamari I have ever had and the cheese plate is the perfect combinations.
