The rooms and bathrooms in this hotel were dated and tired. It looked like nothing had been updated in 25 years. The beds, sheets and mattresses were the most uncomfortable I'd ever experienced at a hotel. Mattress was not supportive- neither firm nor soft, the sheets felt like card board, and the pillows felt like they were stuffed with styrofoam... More

We stayed two nights in a king room. Roomy and regular amenities. There's a very nice adults only pool/hot tub/spa area, a great play pool area for families and a fun playground geared for 3-7 year olds. There are daily activities for guests including fun events for kids including a Lego scavenger hunt. There are also villas but may only... More

We stayed over spring break, all seven days, with the kids for Legoland/Disney/Beach vacation. The room was a two bedroom condo unit, and was large enough for all of us. However, the room was at best average in all ways... the microwave start button wouldn't work (we just hit the auto buttons and pulled food out early), there were 4-5... More

Our bible study group had a wonderful time. The view from hotel was breathtaking. All employees of the hotel were very friendly & helpful specially Juvy who gave us excellent customer service. Would definitely plan another trip next time.

Staying at the hotel right now. When checking in they said it would be one hour. We spent our precious vacation time in the lobby and it turned out to be two hours. I wish they would have just told us that it would be two hours in the beginning. We had lego land tickets and could have went there... More

We spent 2 nights at this hotel, and liked it very much. The location is great, you can actually walk (about 5min) to Legoland, we did this both days (with 2 kids) and were happy not having to pay for parking at the park! The hotel is very big and has a lot of amenities for the kids, they have... More

We were excited to head to the San Diego area for Thanksgiving vacation 2013 - and we had a great time!!! We had a 1 bedroom condo with a full kitchen and it was very comfortable. It was a bit dated on the inside, but very clean and comfortable. The bedroom had a king bed and the living room had... More

We have just returned from a week long vacation at the Grand Pacific Palisades which was booked with timeshare bank. The customer service staff on the front desk are second to none and all went above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The 2 bedroom villa we stayed in was beautiful and spotlessly clean and well appointed.. The cleaning... More

We have stayed at the resort several times and it is wonderfully located for all things San Diego County and north. But this stay was special because of a magnificent Front Desk Professional named Nubia. When our twice requested ocean view room had not been assigned, Nubia went the very extra mile to help....we were hosting a dual 65th b-day... More

We stayed here using our timeshare points (booked about 8 months in advance) for our Spring Break. We had a few blips upon arrival: No blanket or comforter for the pull-out bed, no 'welcome binder' in our room, room wasn't ready upon arrival, etc. In our confirmation email, it said check in was at 3pm, but later reading at the...
