-If you are staying at this resort in a one, two or three bedroom you are staying at a timeshare. There are lots of reviews complaining about the lack of maid service but if you are familiar with timeshares you would know you only get maid service twice a week. Also breakfast is not included.... Another thing normal with timeshares.... More

Suite was exceptionally inviting, large and ultra comfortable. The bathrooms were perfectly well lit and also rather large. The kitchen had all necessary conveniences and was also large and brightly lit. The bed which I used was ultra comfortable to sleep in. I had my grandchildren barge into my suite periodically and they loved having three TVs. Of course their... More

We faced the family pool which still had a great view from the third floor! All the staff were knowledgable and friendly even had a great talk with Juan the maintenance guy! The activities staff were amazing and friendly. Would definitely recommend this resort to anyone. Legoland was right there but because our day was so packed with other touristy... More

Do NOT stay here! It's dirty, uncomfortable, noisy, depressing...this place ruined our Legoland trip. I can't wait to leave here. GROSS!! There is a cool looking kids water park and there are tons and tons and tons and tons of kids here- that may be why both my kids are now sick---and historically neither one has EVER missed a day...

Nice large accommodations close to area attractions, We stayed in a two bedroom unit with our two kids and grandparents and there was plenty of room. The room had a view of the ocean and the flower fields (out of season unfortunately. The full kitchen meant we could bring food in and save on meals. The Karl Strauss restaurant is... More

We booked through the hotel with a special coupon that they were offering online about five months before our stay there this past month. We reserved a "premium view" two queen bed room and requested a room with a view of the flower fields since a friend recommended it. We were told at the time of the reservation it shouldn't... More
