My three favorite hotels in this area of Southern California are Montage Laguna Beach, the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel, and the Monarch Beach Resort. Their locations in Laguna Beach are perfect for weekend getaways or longer family vacations to enjoy everything this beautiful coastline has to offer.

The Monarch Beach Resort is a golf and beach resort that’s both kid-friendly and dog-friendly. With 3 pools, a kids club and Laguna’s only beach club, this is a great option for the whole family to enjoy.
