    Enjoyed Most: Beautiful views and great location
    Other Comments: We stayed with our 3 year old and 7 month old in this family friendly hotel. Our 3 year old enjoyed the heated pool and splash pad while we enjoyed the scenic views overlooking Dana Point Harbour, the ocean and mountains in the distance. Rooms and decor are nice and what you expect from a Marriott hotel. Very nice work out facility. We appreciated the free pack-n-play and fridge upon request. Parking is valet only so felt like we had to tip often but that's the only thing that wasn't ideal about our stay.

    Enjoyed Most: The spa and the NYE dinner at the Vue.
    Other Comments: Excellent location. We love to go there for our staycation.
    Rachel Jan 03, 2017 Whittier, CA, United States
    Enjoyed Most: Spectacular location, close to great running and hiking trails, a wonderful beach, yoga in the park, the marina, good restaurants and fun little shops. A beautiful, first-rate gym, a super comfy bed, great staff. The Travelzoo special included a waiver of the $24 per night resort fee, but the hotel also waived the $37 per night parking fee, which we appreciated very much and made our stay an excellent value for the money.
    Other Comments: Cons: no coffee in the lobby, so if you want something other than what you can make in your room, you have to either pay the hotel $6.25 for coffee, or hike down to the marina (1.5 miles round trip) to get some. Also, on this visit, our room was on the first floor, right next to the pool facilities. We had no view, our room was relatively dark, and we had lots of noise from kids loudly enjoying the pool beginning at 7:30 in the morning. (Last time we stayed here on a Travelzoo special, our room was on the second floor and away from the pool, so it was much more relaxing for a couple's weekend getaway).

    Enjoyed Most: Beautiful area. Friendly employees.
    Other Comments: Expensive for car parking. Almost 40 a day seems high. Rooms need some renovating.

    Other Comments: I felt pampered!
    Dominica Dec 28, 2016 Oxnard, California, United States
    Enjoyed Most: The beautiful views.
    Other Comments: The furnishings were worn and tired along with the mattress. I don't know if we got an older room because of the discount. It was Christmas Eve and pretty empty.
    Carol Dec 27, 2016 Alpine, CA, United States
    Enjoyed Most: The room and Xmas decorations and beautiful view of the ocean. Food was great in the bar area and great service.
    Other Comments: Great place to stay.

    Other Comments: I asked for a quiet room and regrettably we could hear everything above our room. Stains on furniture need to be addressed. Staff was very pleasant.
