The staff was very attentive and we had a really good time at this facility. Great food and service. Attended a wedding for children of friends. They met all our needs and the celebration was great. The room was wonderful and I wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful resort, great staff on the surface. The housekeeping staff never could get us water glasses and literally thru the shampoo and etc in a pile on the counter. When we got home we realized lots of our clothes were missing and tried calling the hotel several times and they always assured us they would recover our clothes. Never did.... More

Was there for businesses, will be back for fun. Beautiful place, amazing location. Ocean views from everywhere, pool, restaurant, gym. The staff is very genuine, eager to please. Food and service in the restaurant was excellent, did not know it is so popular with the locals, but I can see why. Will deifinitively be back with the family

I recently completed my second stay at this property and it was fantastic. The location is amazing as it is located right across the road from Carlsbad State Beach. You are literally 100 yards from the ocean. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. The pool area is nice with plenty of lounge chairs to soak up the sun and... More

The view from the ocean view rooms are awesome!! Love sitting/unwinding on the patio/balcony with a cocktail or glass of wine, especially at sunset. The service is impeccable and the food at Chandlers was superb. Lunch included the grilled fish tacos and shrimp and lobster tacos, AMAZING! Dinner was even better, if that is possible - scallop appetizers, halibut entrée... More

The room we were promised was a quiet ocean view room. However, what we received was a room right next to a busy highway and campground. It was so noisy that we could not open the sliding glass door without being constantly interrupted by campers yelling and cars zooming by. After a long weekend getting married, we were really looking... More
