Valentine’s Day does not always allow for a lengthy trip to celebrate with that special someone, but if you are in Southern California a quick visit to Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa makes for the perfect getaway.

Sunset from your balcony

Located in the heart of Orange County in Dana Point, Laguna Cliffs is just a leisurely drive on the five freeway from Los Angeles or San Diego. Once you check in, you will quickly forget that drive. As you take in the scenic view and feel the ocean breeze you will feel as if you took a long romantic trip far from your normal everyday worries. To make your Valentine’s Day visit even more special, Laguna Cliffs has put together an entire package for you just to celebrate this special day. The package has Valentine’s Day written all over it as you are given deluxe accommodations, a bottle of house champagne, a decadent treat of warm donut holes with vanilla ice cream and crispy waffles with salty caramel ice cream that you can enjoy at the Vue bar and finally breakfast for two. This is where the real dilemma comes in, do you have a romantic bedside breakfast in your stunning Laguna Cliffs room or do you head to the Vue restaurant to enjoy an amazing breakfast buffet with the gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean. As tempting as the bedside breakfast is, feeling the ocean breeze while taking in that view really is hard to beat.

Vue is offering a six-course meal that features Maine lobster tail and filet medallions and it is finished off with seven-layer chocolate cake and red velvet lollipops.
