There are only 31 units here at Wave Crest, so it's a very small, intimate resort but a very nice one. The set up is more like beautiful cottages overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean, all with kitchens and bathrooms. If you are seeking something special to stay at, this is

Great views of the ocean especially from the pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The resort resembled little cottages. A very nice beach to walk on close by. The area is quiet as well which can be bonus or not depending on how you vacation.

I surprised my wife with 2 nights here as Del Mar is one of our favorite places to come. The views from the condo are second to none and the pool overlooks the sparkling ocean where we sipped the sun away into a beautiful sunset.

We don't want much, so we were ok with the resort, BUT most owners would not be. Windows were dirty, flatware missing, limited kitchen pans, non-working toaster and lack of response. Lovely people, but nothing seemed to get done.The front units ont he water are amazing views

One style of studio unit
very clean
Cal King beds in many of the one and two bedroom units
Bed and Bedding upgrades are wonderful
Which 1-bedroom unit #'s have a balcony and ocean view? Thank you in advance!
Hi. I'd have to walk around and find out. I could do that for you sometime soon, but unless you are an owner, you do not get your choice until you arrive. So I don't know if it will help you. If you are thinking about buying, then let me know and I'll check the unit you're interested in. The ones at ground level that open up with grass in front and full 180 views are the best for sure. IT's a safe area, so the doors can be open, etc.

Not bad for two people. Everything else is there, nice full kitchen and big bathroom. The resort is smaller than others but personal services such as a full cleaning mid week. Personnel are most accommodating. Free laundry machines on premises just bring your own detergent.

"Some 2BR and 1BR units sit on bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean."
"2 bedrooms overlook the Pacific."
"two bedroom units on the bluff over looking the ocean"
"Stay away from any of the studios with murphy beds."
"The 1 bedroom units overlooking the park; studio units 1,7, 12 and 13; and any 2 bedroom unit are all good."
US$180 - US$338 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
