If your looking for great service look no further.Everyone was so cool and knowledgeable that me and my family didn't want to leave. Our room was very spacious and clean it was within walking distance of lego land. I could go on and on but if your looking for someplace nice pick this resort.

We have been coming here every year since they opened. Our boys are now 18 and 17 and have grown up vacationing in Grand Pacific Palisades Resort. They have seen how the resort has improved year after year and yet the staff has continued to stay friendly. This year our oldest invited his high school/college buddies for a couple of... More

Our group (3 adults/2 kids) booked three nights at Grand Pacific b/c of it's proximity to Legoland (an easy walk). It was great to have the 2 bd/2 ba condo so everyone had private space, plus we could prep meals when we didn't feel like eating out. Karl Strauss brewery/restaurant is on property and offers tasty/interesting dishes along with some... More

We've been an owner there for ~15 years. We have always loved and still do. We have our 1st grandchild so we will get to start over with all the little kid things again. The condos are roomy, comfortable and have all you need and if you need anything, they'll get it for you. All conveniences are close by and... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom 'villa' for 3 nights. It was spacious, but not nice. The biggest issue we had here was with the service, which continued to amaze us at how terrible it was. First of all, they are trying to sell you on buying a timeshare at every possible moment. They weave the language into... More

First off, I'd like to say: "I don't know why ANYONE would give this place a bad review". My family and I had an amazing experience at this resort!! From the moment we pulled up in front we were already amazed at how beautiful this place was. We were immediately greeted by very friendly hotel employees. Check-in was quick &... More

Room wasn't ready till almost 5pm. Unfriendly staff and the condo we stayed in looked like a motel 6 with a small kitchen. The day we wanted to not sight see and use the pool, was the day they decided to clean it and shut it down. Way over priced for a resort! Will never stay there again nor will... More

The hotel is nice, across the street from Legoland and close to the wedding destination. I found it a little pricy and the a/c was noisy. But all in all a nice place to stay. I would stay again but for family's it may be a little to expensive.

I love this hotel because of all the activities and facilities it has to offer most especially for families. It's also a good walking distance to Legoland. However, I was not able to avail of all the activities since I wanted to concentrate more on sightseeing and amusement parks. I also was disturbed that we were only given a few... More

I cannot say how impressed I was with this hotel. Wow. The room was AMAZING. I really hate hotel beds and never get any sleep when I travel. I slept like a baby while I was there. Such comfortable beds and linens. The room was large and the deck was really nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The... More
