Thirty women traveled to Pala Mesa for a 2 day golf event. The rooms apparently varied in terms of how well kept they were. My room was fine. It wasn't a refurbished room, but it was good enough. Everything worked (except the TV - I couldn't figure out how to change the channel!). The rooms are well insulated for sound... More

We went to Pala Mesa Resort for a couples retreat. I was disappointed. Everything is old. Furniture, decorations and even the smell of the room. It smelled moldy. The beds were uncomfortable. For a couples retreat not the best. The outdoor or shared area was nice. Golf course was well kept and employees were very friendly. For a couple I... More

I reviewed this location a year ago and things have gotten worse. Our room had ants, the cracks on the sink vanity were over a quarter inch wide in places, the exterior had severe wood rot and termite damage, along with large areas of peeling paint. In both cases, the reviews were for rooms up on the hill surrounding the... More

A great place to play a tournament or just a round of golf with your buddies.. The course is always in great shape and has a nice driving range located near Hwy 76 and I-15 in Fallbrook area. Nice place to meet for dinner and has a wonderful bar and restaurant.. You will not be disappointed..

The golf course was beautifully maintained. Staff in restaurant were great, friendly, attentive, charismatic. Rooms were a little outdated, but nice enough for the price. We would definitely stay again.

Managed to get out as a twosome around 9:00am. Given the weather the condition of the course was good, in fact the rough around the greens was juicy at times. Interesting and well designed holes, never boring. Played in 4 hours 10 minutes despite catching two mature foursomes on the back nine!

Played as solo with another couple late February on modest greens fees via TeeOff.com. 35 minutes east of Oceanside CA. Easy to get to. By no means a "resort" quality course. Front nine not interesting and fairways in pretty rough shape. Lots of ground marked in white outline and under repair. Back nine much more scenic, challenging narrow fairways, elevation... More

Met friends from San Diego for lunch there and enjoyed the food and atmosphere very much. The service was great. Have visited several times and am always pleased.

For the price it really was a decent stay. Staff was very pleasant, yeah, the rooms aren't the most up to date, but they are clean. Course was very enjoyable and challenging enough to play more than once.

We were pretty disappointed by the appearance of the rooms at this resort. The location is spectacular. The club house serves amazing food. The people who work and use the resort are very friendly. But our rooms (we had 3) were very musty and very very very dated. Poor repair work on tile floors, peeling 1970's wall paper. Stains just... More
