Grand Pacific Palisades sits on a bluff above the Flower Fields with long-range views of the ocean. If you're lucky enough to stay during the spring when the flowers are blooming it is an amazing and unforgettable view. We are timeshare owners at the resort and visit twice/year to escape the winter in the Eastern U.S. The staff is professional... More

We own a timeshare there and love that's it's only an hour from home. It's very well kept and great location close to Legoland, San Diego, Safari Park and not to far from Disneyland for a day trip. They have a kids pool with things to play on as well as an adult pool and big hot tub that looks... More

Some of the outstanding workers were Michael, Richard, Kyle, Bill, Mona, and Paige. The rooms were large and very comfortable, The Resort was in the middle of Restaurants and Shopping, very easy to get around, the Resort would take you anywhere within 5 miles for transportation. This feature was one of our highights.
