This resort offered a variety of activities for young people - I especially liked the Smorgs by the pool! It's close locations to Legoland was a bonus (we walked to the park), near to a variety of great restaurants, short drive to San Diego, La Jolla, Del Mar makes this resort a perfect place for all ages.

We went to LEGOLAND for the weekend. We stayed in a 2 room condo at the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort and Hotel. We shared with a couple with 2 small children, so we let them have the "master" and the other room had one double and one twin, which worked for us. The bathrooms are large with lots of room... More

Enjoyed this resort--clean and beautiful; large rooms. Lovely pool areas: one for families with children and one for adults. Easy drive to beach and Carlsbad Village. Especially liked walkway with benches next to a retaining wall overlooking beach just north of the utility plant with the tall smokestack. Life guards on duty. Parking next to the walkway and on side... More

Hello Gail, Thank you very much for your nice feedback, however I was hoping to speak with you more regarding your stay. As you comments are very postive, the score you gave us is very low.

Beautiful resort! Close to shopping, downtown and the beach. Our unit had a nice kitchen area, coffee pot, DVD player. My favorite part of our stay was the beautiful pool, fire pit, wine and live music in the evening. This was a girls get away, but I can't wait to bring my husband back. Highly recommend this resort.

We stayed at this resort through a timeshare exchange. We had a 2 bedroom suite and the room was spacious and clean. The staff was great and very helpful. We were a little disappointed in the pools. The kids area was rundown. There is not much in the way of organized activities if that is something you enjoy. Right next... More

We had a lovely suite but having to wait an hour and twenty minutes past the check in time, after a 3 hour drive was not the best start to our stay. We had to hang around the hotel, we were given a pass to use the pool but our suitcases were in the car and we didn't really want... More

This is a lovely resort with great staff. Everyone is friendly and accommodating. If anything needs fixing, it is taken care of quickly. Every unit has a nice kitchen area with a full stove, microwave, and standard dishwasher. Every television has a DVD player which is great for the kids.

I enjoyed my stay but found the furniture in my 3 bedroom unit tired looking and needing updating. My two bedroom at Seapointe had more furniture for guest and was recently updated. The much larger living room at GPP be a sofa and one uncomfortable chair and not even an ottoman. Both resorts ask you to reuse the towels, which... More

I was fortunate enough to spend part of my Birthday weekend here, and I could not have been more impressed. We had a gorgeous two bedroom condo, which could easily have held 10 people comfortably. The dining and living room areas were enormous and beautifully decorated. The pool was like a small lagoon, with an amazing hot tub and glorious... More
