Family Staycation at The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel


One of our favorite places to retreat for a family staycation in Orange County is The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel. It is like our own little private paradise right in our backyard to getaway from all the stress of daily life. With the holidays in full effect, we found our family in need of a break from our busy holiday schedule, so we packed our suitcases, and headed to the ocean front resort for the weekend.



From the moment, that we arrived at the resort, we left behind all of our holiday stress. We were greeted in the inviting atmosphere with the kindest staff who offered the children a bite of salt water taffy, and whisked our bags up to our home away from home for the weekend.


The staff shared their genuine and gracious hospitality as they walked us throughout the resort to advise of all of the amenities available to us, and where our family could locate everything we needed for the weekend. We were then handed the key to our magnificent retreat for our staycation to begin.





The rooms at The Ritz-Carlton are large enough to accommodate our growing family. Their spacious rooms are designed with timeless elegance with gorgeous bathrooms. The sweeping panoramic ocean views of the shimmering crystalline waters allowed our family to relax and reconnect from the moment that we walked out on our private veranda.




The resort has an incredible array of fine amenities including a gym with sweeping ocean views, relaxing spa and two beautiful pools. With their unparalleled service, the staff brought out pool toys, and helped to arrange our towels so that we could bask in the rays of the California. The children created unforgettable memories together splashing and laughing in the crystal clear water of the pool while my husband and I relaxed and enjoyed our sun-soaked staycation.




After an authentic experience at the resort pool, we took a walk around the resorts lush landscaping while enjoying the breathtaking sunset over the Pacific Ocean. We then walked hand in hand in the cool ocean breezes down to the sparkling golden beach below the resort.


We ended the evening with a movie and popcorn while cuddling with our children in the luxe linens, and plush blankets. It was one of the most relaxing evenings that our family was able to enjoy together during the holiday season.


The morning before we left to return home, the children once again went for a swim in the warm pool waters. We followed our swim with a family game of tennis, playtime on their play structure and a thrilling game of ping pong.




The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel will truly allow your family to get away from it all and be immersed into their tranquil ambiance. The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel is located at 1 Ritz-Carlton Drive in Dana Point.


We stayed at the resort as a guest of the Ritz-Carlton.
