At Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa, we’ve spent years working to become the best resort in Dana Point – and we are proud to be celebrating our 30th anniversary this September! Specializing in oceanside getaways for families and couples, as well as corporate meetings and events, our resort has been welcoming happy guests since September 15, 1987.
Most Romantic Spot on the California Coast
Set high on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the AAA Four Diamond Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa offers an ideal location overlooking the California Coastline, Doheny State Beach parkland, and scenic Dana Point Harbor. Our striking red-roofed Victorian-style resort appeals to both business and leisure travelers with commanding views of vast white sand beaches, incredible sunsets, and a charming coastal town. Offering guests 378 perfectly appointed guest rooms, including 15 deluxe suites, the immaculate accommodations at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa comfortably blend seaside elegance and a cheerful décor that reflects the spirit of Dana Point. Guests can enjoy two heated swimming pools with impressive ocean views and the 14,000-square-foot Spa at Laguna Cliffs, embracing the laid-back spirit of Orange County with specialty massages, facials, and body treatments in ten beautifully-appointed treatment rooms. In fact, we have a putting green and live entertainment Friday and Saturday nights in our OverVue lounge from 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. Guests staying at the resort for business can even get in a round of golf at one of five local courses between meetings held in our more than 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space.
Opened on September 15, 1987, and originally called the Dana Point Resort, the hotel was constructed on an elevated bluff with sweeping vistas of the Pacific Ocean in a coastline region rich with surfing history. The spirit of that original resort is still present in our “California casual” attitude, sophisticated yet accessible resort offerings, and an authentic 1940 “Woodie” automobile – complete with surfboards on the roof – still on display.
At Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa, employees love their jobs here, and that’s why many guests who return year after year recognize so many familiar faces. In fact, these employees have been with us for all 30 years of our operation!
