Laguna Riviera continues to be the perfect place to enjoy R&R and escape from cold Seattle. I returned December 26 - January 1 to share a very comfortable suite with my parents. Room 401 gave us ample room with lovely kitchen (with table seating 4), bathroom, private bedroom for my folks and pull out couch for me. We enjoyed the option to eat in the room or on the massive deck overlooking the beach. The location gave us the best of all worlds, room side deck for watching surfers, pelicans and dolphins for my parents and beach access for me to walk every morning and afternoon. Our ritual was to regroup for a gorgeous sunset each evening. This time of year Catalina island is silhouetted brilliantly at sunset.
This room and several others are ideal for those with limited mobility. Only a short distance from the parking lot with no stairs and you have full view of the ocean. I really like the fact that Riviera offers free onsite parking.
Not to be missed is the salt water pool. I enjoyed swimming in the evenings and appreciated that it was open for use until 11.
The roses, hibiscus and other flowering plants add to the cheerful ambiance of the Riviera. The landscaped terraces buzzed with humming birds, a treat especially for my Mom. Although there were plenty of guests enjoying their own decks, many with kids, noise level was never a distraction from the peaceful
sounds of ocean or birdlife.
We started every day off with the continental breakfast, 8:30 kickoff was ideal, since we were on vacation. The chocolate chip muffins are my favorite, so fresh they melt in your mouth. There are plenty of options, my folks like the cheese Danish with a cup of tasty peaches. We love the opportunity to bring it back to enjoy from our deck. Gave us a boost for the day without hassle of leaving resort. I think its a very generous perk considering what simply a piece of fruit costs in the market.
This remains a gem and I highly recommend for anyone who wants a charming, restful California beach getaway.
