This is a great family resort. Kids loved the boggey boarding. Also liked laundry on site. It has a great pool and is close to the ocean. Enjoyed the breakfasts and the room was more than adequate for a family of four to enjoy.

We had a great time at this resort. We stayed in a 1 bed condo, there was plenty of room for the 3 of us, in fact we were surprised at how much room there was. We used the beach chair/toy facility a few times. It was great not having to carry and store everything ourselves. The pool is a... More

We own 2 weeks here, and use them every year! Great location, friendly staff, free underground parking, and they continually are improving the units and the grounds. Our friends and family always want to tag along!

This was a repeat stay for us at this property, the prior experience being much better, so we thought it was like an old friend, but disappointed overall this time. I booked many months in advance and was assured that my request for a 1st floor room on the courtyard would be honored, so I didn't mind paying the high... More

Great location. Easy access to beach and Carlsbad village. You can borrow beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, and kids beach toys right on the beach - very convenient! One bedroom suite was spacious.

We really enjoy this resort. Just a great place to relax and recharge. Usually very peaceful family place. Having the equipment checkout nearly right on the beach was great and the toys was a plus for those of us that fly in..

With 15 rooms rented for the reunion and 35 family members, the underground parking and use of "free" beach chairs, umbrellas, toys and boogie boards....it made my job easier. There is a cantina/restaurant, yogurt/deli and breakfast/lunch cafe right there in the same parking lot. No one needed to get into their cars! For three days of fun this was the... More

Excellent place for families to gather no matter the age. We have enjoyed the resort for 20 years and our children feel bad if they miss a year. Wonderful shops, beaches and food within easy walking distance. Park your car put on your sandals and have a great time.

This is good for families with young kids but the lights around the property are so bright you can't open your window at night to get the ocean breezes. Not great for people who don't have kids with them. We won't return. The rooms are also expensive for a poor experience.
