This hotel was very nice... Great, clean rooms with beautiful views of the ocean and sunset. The food at Chandlers was great and the pool was super nice! They shuttled us to and from Legoland for a fraction of the price of the Lego hotel!

The Cape Rey Hilton Resort is a great place to stay. The beds are SO comfortable. The front desk is very helpful and friendly. I had an accessible room where the shower is a walk-in and very large. The bellmen and valets were a great group to deal with. Good views and amenities.

Had the best experience in customer service at the Cape Rey Hilton in Carlsbad. From the registration desk to the Bell service to the great servers in the restaurant. The Food/drinks were excellent! The rooms, pool area and entire place is spotless! You can't beat the beautiful ocean views.

Great hotel! Comfortable beds, fun pool, great food, outstanding service! Right across from beach! Pancakes for breakfast are delicious! Drinks and food at pool are divine. Lots of staff to help. Beautiful views of the sunset over ocean.

Carlsbad Hilton was in a great location, across the street from the beach and campground. I stayed for Business and I was treated to a room with a ocean view to help enjoy the time away from home. They had accommodations for family, and business. I would stay there again for Business or pleasure.

We have held several business meetings at Cape Rey and the service and accommodations are the best! The staff is incredibly responsive and professional. They adapt to our last minute changes seamlessly. Our guests have commented on how much they like the uniqueness of the property, the location, the food...everything! I would recommend Cape Rey for business or pleasure in... More

My family LOVES this property. We were here for a long weekend with several other families from our area. Cape Rey has a great location with nice views. Rooms are a good size and are well maintained and comfortable. Public areas, pool and restaurant patio are lovely. Enjoyed several nights of wine and apps around the fire pit with friends... More

Huge, warm swimming pool with beach-like entrance and poolside food and drink service, overlooking the ocean. Great restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, open late with fire pits on the patio. Plenty of places to relax and eat, drink around the pool even when crowded. Hot tub is a little on the small side and I wish it did not... More

We had our wedding reception - cocktail party and dinner at the Hilton Cape Rey and it was wonderful! From the first day we decided to use the Hilton until after the event, the staff was amazing. All of our guests enjoyed their stay and loved the reception.
