We stayed at this hotel so we got to take in both breakfast and dinner. I love the evening setting with the fire pits and a one band singer. Feels like a cruise ship setting.

Best local Carlsbad meeting place. The staff are perfectly trained. Jillian, Ben and Garrett in the bar are amazing. If you have a bad day they will improve it in no time, It's a great place for socializing as well as Buisness meetings.
