Certificate of Excellence
Nestled along the sunny Pacific Coast in Northern San Diego and only 150 steps to the surf, Cape Rey is the adventurous choice for the California traveler who seeks something different and unique. With spectacular views of picturesque South Carlsbad beaches, the resort sits atop the crest of a series of gently rolling berms - a crest we like to call the Cape! At the Cape you are just minutes from LEGOLAND(R)California and the historic Del Mar Race Track, or a short coastal drive to SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo or Safari Park, famous regional wineries, and award-winning craft breweries. For the adventurous types we outfit you for local deep-sea fishing, sailboat cruises, horseback riding, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing lessons, and kayak explorations. Foodies enjoy dining on-property at Chandler's, where you'll find familiar favorites prepared with a twist. For connecting rejuvenation with mind, body and soul, we offer one of the top 5 Hotel Spas in the U.S. By Travel & Escape, the Ocean Crest Spa. And with an array of excursion locales and onsite amenities, there's always something to do, see or eat at the Cape.

The location of this hotel is great and does have a beautiful view. As a "resort" I think it falls short. I'm not sure because it has a Spa on site or because they have bicycles available or there is a hot tub but the...More

Yes there is a parking fee. I would not pay for valet because the parking garage is close and generally not full. There is a fee for parking garage but worth it.

"Resort" is in the eye if the beholder. It is a very nice property in a great location but it is not what I would consider a "Resort". But, I would stay there again.
