My husband and I spent 3 wonderfully relaxing nights at the Ritz. First impressions are important and the bright modern lobby and public areas with their exquisite floral arrangements make a very good one.

Elegant hotel with great service & beautiful ocean views. I gave it 4 stars because a bit pricey for such an average pool, but location & grounds are beautiful. Pricey I guess is normal for the ritz, especially in Laguna. Btw Get the ceviche at Las Brisas downtown
