We Love our Timeshare at Grand Pacific Palisades. The best part of the stay is the great people who work here. A special thanks to Arni Zamora and Carmen. We sincerely appreciate the help and support we receive everyday. It is the people who work here that make it special.

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days in August. We were invited for a preview of a HGVC (Hilton Grand Vacation Club) property w/a discounted rate. The resort is ok but the service level was a bit lack luster in my opinion. When we arrived after a 4 hour flight, we were told our room was... More

The sweetest rez agent took such good care of us. Upgraded us to a coastal view without us asking. Got us set up in a 2 bed 2 bath suite to more than comfortably accommodate our very large family for a better price than 2 smaller single rooms. Across the street from legoland. Great WiFi. Vital when traveling with teens.... More

I have visited Pacific Palisades on many different occasions sometimes with friends sometimes just my husband and I. It has always been terrific! There is a great restaurant right next-door with room service if you'd like; the ocean is just a few minutes away - you can see it from your room (if you get an ocean view). The town... More

I stayed at this hotel because of the convenience that's near the Legoland (family trip) since I don't drive. I also like to mentioned the hotel staffs are great, especially one of the shuttle car drivers, his name is Richard. He's very friendly and on time when we called for him to pick us up and drive us to places... More

The resort went beyond our expectations in catering to kids! There were daily activities, movies and a water park with the pool that was the perfect size for our little one. We were never at a loss for something to do. In addition, Sean, the front desk manager, was beyond helpful and kind in helping us whenever we had a... More

This was our favorite family hotel on a two week Southern California trip. Our room was spacious, with a closet and large bathroom. There is a gorgeous adults-only pool and hot tub. The kids pool is in a different location on the property and is huge. Our kids enjoyed their time here immensely. There was a kids club and a... More

I stayed here in a suite and the room was great. The hotel was oddly empty, but that worked out well for me. I liked the pool, the parking was conveniently located downstairs, and I had a nice time cooking in the small kitchen. All in all a great experience. However, there are some flower fields nearby and I got... More
