I’ve been to Carlsbad many times and tried out a variety of places to stay. Grand Pacific Palisades Resort is by far the best! First, the service has gone from good (I stayed there last year) to outstanding. The staff will bend over backwards and then some to support you in any way that they can. I am a high... More

Beautiful location and great price for a perfect stay for any occasion. I would recommend this location for any family, friends, or couples looking for a special get away. Our room was a three bedroom and we had plenty of space. This weekend was planned for my wife's birthday and we were able to invite family from the San Diego... 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.

I stayed at Palisades the week of one of the Republican Debates for President of the United States. As I had to interrupt my stay for personal reasons and I arrived back very close to the start time. I could not find the channel. I called the front desk for help and they said they would send the engineer up... More

Our room was large and spacious. The bathroom was fantastic. I loved the two pools. Most importantly, the staff was professional and helpful in every way. Everyone I spoke to was pleasant and enthusiastic. The location of the resort was perfect. It was very close to my work.

Andrea at the front desk made our vacation perfect. All units are very nice but all do not have a view of the Pacific Ocean. You should ask about that when making your reservation. We did not, but the front desk staff was able to accommodate us.Thank you!

From the first checkin with Joanna, at the front desk, we were treated extremely well! My friend boldly asked if w could have a room with an ocean view, even though we weren't booked into one, and we got it! We loved watching the sunset everyday. The pools were great, the hot tubs were clean and hot, and the place... More

We always stay at this resort for our annual visit to San Diego. We love the clean, spacious units with all of their amenities, and we always request a unit with an ocean view. The staff this year was exceptionally helpful and friendly. We had some difficulty with Room 275 and were immediately transferred to a different room. Malayna actually... More

We spent our Holiday Season in our favorite hotel in California. We love Grand Pacific Palisades and visit with them from Las Vegas several times a year. Every visit is a delight, but this December we had an especially great time. At our arrival, we were greeted with a glass of champagne…a very nice touch after a long drive from... More
