    Gorgeous venue on the water

    We had a wonderful experience with the Laguna Cliffs Marriott and can't thank Sandy Chiu, Amanda Schirm, and Marissa Heredia enough. They're all very professional and our main contact, Amanda, is an incredibly caring and attentive individual. She responded to emails quickly and thoroughly, and was very patient dealing with a bunch of questions and requests. The staff setting up the reception was also very professional and went out of their way to check in on us throughout the night.

    Our event lasted a couple of days as we were there for a holiday weekend. The rest of the Marriott staff would congratulate us when we were at lunch/other times they'd see us around the hotel (they even comp'd my lunch!). They're wonderful people at this hotel and we can't recommend them enough.

    The venue was beautiful -- a stunning night overlooking the water. We were lucky to have had perfect weather that day as the heat wave had subsided and there was no wind on the outdoor Vue Lawn. We were very worried about the weather leading up to the event, so definitely keep this in mind if you're planning an outdoor event.

    Overall, thank you, Laguna Cliffs. We had the most wonderful and memorable weekend and much of it is thanks to you.

    Amazing venue to get married! It is absolutely gorgeous. My fiance and I must have gone to 15 other venue sites, but immediately walking into the Marriott, we knew it was where we needed to get married. Nicole has been a pleasure to work with and very flexible and accomidating to our needs.

    Laguna Cliffs was the PERFECT venue to get married. Sandy Chiu was our venue coordinator and she was fantastic with helping us plan the perfect day. And it was better than perfect! Our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were all on the Vue lawn outside with the beautiful view. Everything ran smoothly and everyone was happy. The food was great, the service was great and we are so thankful for the staff's hard work!
