Incredible view and exceptional excellence! Raya Restaurant offered a wonderful selection of culinary experience. The Salmon and Thai Budda Feast were amazing. Hailey, Catering Manager extended excellent customer service for the event we are planning. She was so curteous and accomodating of our busy and hectic schedules. Finally, the room with 180 degree ocean view was amazing,

Wow - this location is unbeatable. The views are spectacular. We didn’t dine at the restaurant, but grabbed a drink at the bar and sat on the outside grassy area to watch the sunset. Our room was probably one if their lower tiers, had views of one of the two pools, but still a nice room. Went there for my birthday, and they brought a small birthday cake (nice touch). The food and drink are a little pricey (2 drinks at the bar were $41), but you’ve got a view that makes the price less painful. One area for improvement was at the pool. They were understaffed, and it took about 20 minutes from the time we sat down to get a drink. Waitress was super polite - just a note to management to watch staffing at the pool in the summer months. Oh, and one of the better perks was being greeted at the front desk with a glass of champagne! Overall, very relaxing experience and beautiful setting.

Long relaxing weekend to breakup the winter. The hotel is beautiful with exceptional staff. The view is spectacular! Our room had a fire pit on the patio, and a s’mores kit was provided in our room which made for a fun family evening. Recommend spending an afternoon with on the water with Dana Point Charters whale watching.

You know it's an amazing experience when you start booking a return visit to the property while you are still onsite. Being that we travel a lot and are in the hospitality business we can attest that the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel checks all the boxes. We have stayed at our share of Ritz Carlton hotels and found the layout of this property to be perfect, our Club Level suite was awesome and our overall accommodations were nothing short of amazing. The staff was outstanding, especially Penny, Silvia, Mercedes and the rest of the Club level lounge staff were extremely helpful and pleasant to visit with for our 3 nights. The sunset view from 180blue was spectacular and Brandon at Bar Raya was super friendly. I cannot forget to mention Anthony at the front desk as well as the Valet staff for going above and beyond. We are looking forward to returning this summer to once again experience a Ritz Carlton property at it's best.

Where do I begin?!? This hotel is simply gorgeous, classy, and is set upon the most amazing view. The food, the staff, and everything about this place is beyond wonderful. I didn’t want to leave! Yes the food and cocktails are pretty pricey (average drink was around $16) but it was worth the cost! Passion fruit mojito - yes please! I was there for work. I hope to return another time with my husband. Love it!
