If ever you are driving along the expansive and picturesque road known as PCH, you should most certainly make a stop at the lovely Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel. Nestled between Dana Point and Laguna, the large lawn, gardens, and breathtaking views are incredible. This spa is excellent and offers a plethora of services, and the outdoor patio is perfect for an evening cocktail. The tropical decor throughout the property complements the hotels chic but simple beach objective. Criticism, the pool is moderately understated and will suffice for a weekend get away but is not highly impressive nor large. Definitely stop at this location for beautiful views and a relaxing retreat.
