A Soaring Vision For This Laguna Beach Area Resort …

Experience new heights of luxury and recreational excitement at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa, which perfectly echoes the beauty of the Pacific Coast. The bluffs at Dana Point take their name from Richard Henry Dana – an early seafarer and author, who described the spot as the most romantic on the California coast. Today, a 2,500-slip yacht harbor enhances Dana Point’s appeal – as does our very own Laguna Beach Marriott, introducing guests to the special charms of Dana’s favorite cove since 1995. The resort’s red-roofed, Victorian-style architecture caps the cliffs above the bay. Guests look out over more than 75 acres of gardens, lawns, and Doheny State Beach parkland – all laced with miles of biking, strolling, and jogging paths.

The Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa has raised the standard of luxury for Marriotts in California, perched high atop the cliffs of Dana Point, overlooking the Pacific. Escape to this four-diamond coastal retreat – worlds apart from the ordinary, yet convenient to all of Southern California’s major attractions.
