We were so happy with out choice to stay here. Close enough to Legoland that we were able to walk and take breaks from the park during the day. Kids loved the pool area. Room was clean and comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed. Beautiful view of the beach. If we had been there when the flowers were growing, it... More

This is my first review but I am so impressed with my stay here I felt it very important to share. As a manager in a retail industry I feel that I evaluate customer service with a fairly critical eye. The service here has been outstanding. Our room was extremely clean and we had a beach view from our room.... More

For a vacation that has it all I recommend Grand Pacific Resort in Carlsbad. Shopping, restaurants, special activities, and excellent room accommodations will make your vacation time one to remember . We loved the Farmer's Market in Carlsbad as a bonus. San Diego activities are 35 minutes away. Beaches beckon you. Enjoy.

Have been an owner since 1999. Enjoyed the family pool and all the kids activities when my children were younger. Now enjoying the relaxing, quiet adult pool. Carlsbad and surrounding areas are great to explore. Lots of beach opportunities, hiking trails, botanical gardens, outlet mall, etc. Many restaurants to choose from in the immediate area, from very casual to fine... More

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
