We stayed for a week. The location was great - really close to lots of interesting things to do, even if you don't have kids at Lego land. Our unit was beautiful, a two bedroom back by the kids pool. We would have preferred staying closer to the all-adult pool, but the resort wasn't very crowded so it worked out...

Very comfortable accommodations in a beautiful area of San Diego. When confused about if we received complimentary water bottles or not, Tony, the Maintenance Managers brought us 5 free bottles! This is just an example of the exceptional service we had all week.

This property is close to the Seasonal Flower Fields/beds & the Carlsbad Outlet. The beach is between one to two miles away. Some of the rooms...

We stayed for three days and found it very clean, convenient and friendly - the staff was inobtrusive but helpful, the two bedroom suite was large with a great full kitchen, and parking was easy and free).

Our room in the timeshare was a two bedroom suite with a small kitchenette, two bathrooms, a small balcony, a nice sized dining table, sofa and chair and a flat screen TV. We had daily house keeping. There was underground parking. The location is overlooking the Carlsbad flowers (a beautiful extremely large flower garden) and within easy walking distance of...

When I was on trip advisor looking at this hotel the best rate was on hotels.com or trip advisor. I went to the hotel website because I had seen some special package rates on there, but the website was glitching and when I put my dates in it would freeze. I called and gave the dates and was quoted a...

The resort was the perfect setting for a mini-reunion. The three bedroom ocean view unit provided all the comforts of home. We especially enjoyed the beautiful sunsets while sitting outside on the balcony. The resort offered a variety of daily activities and Fina at the concierge desk added to the list. The restaurant located next to the resort provided a...
