A Soaring Vision for Our Dana Point 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 Laguna Cliffs 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 - all laced with miles of biking, strolling, and jogging paths. Experience the diverse features at our Southern California Marriott hotel, including:
  • The Spa at Laguna Cliffs, our full-service spa and wellness center
  • Complimentary full-service fitness center, with 2,500 square feet, located in the Spa
  • Two outdoor heated pools and whirlpools, for refreshing dips and invigorating swims
