Grand Pacific was our home away from home for our visit to Legoland and San Diego Zoo Safari Park and I couldn't be happier with ths choice. The staff were friendly and helpful and grounds were immaculate.

My wife and I took our oldest daughter and her family here to have a fun week in the area. LEGOLAND, Zoo, beach and for my wife and I visiting near by California Missions. Resort was great and we all had fun. Our grandkids loved all the activities and played until they were forced to go to bed.

Just want to share our appreciation for the assistance we received from a particular employee by the name of Pedro Sanchez... he was very helpful in addressing a issue with a electronic cd player, patiently tracking down the problem & replacing the player so we could enjoy our music! Thanks again Pedro!

Great location and friendly staff. There are a lot of activities for both children and adults on the premises. Off site, it is just a 5 minute walk to legoland and a short drive to a very nice beach location. We decided to extend our stay but the resort was sold out, the staff inparticulary George Orellana went out of...

Our room was very spacious, and clean. The king size bed was very comfortable. Having a mini refrigerator was very handy. The hotel is an easy walk to Legoland. Convenient to Costco. The people that work there were very pleasant and helpful. The price was reasonable.

This Resort is one of our favorite places to stay in Carlsbad, CA. Great amenities, great staff and great location. The staff is very professional and courteous, always here to help. Arni Zamora fixed our screen door and Gene Reyes fixed our chair and carpet. This is definitely a 5 Star Resort. So if you're looking for a great place...

Have stayed at this property previously, in the hotel section, not the villas/time share units. Things have certainly gone downhill since. Was told that check-in was 4:00 p.m., was there at that time and room was still not ready. After twenty minutes, we were informed that the room was ready. Upon entering, we noticed the remote for the TV was...

We have been staying at Grand Pacific Palisades since 1999 and continue to enjoy this beautiful resort resort and its location in Carlsbad. Love San Diego which is only a short drive. This is one of my favorite vacation locations.

The hotel itself was beautiful. The rooms spacious and clean. The only negative would be their non caring response when I fell on the second floor due to an oil spot by the elevator. I was fine. I went down to the lobby to inform them of the fall and oil spot. Their lack of concern surprised me. I had...
