The Grand Pacific Palisades is a wonderful resort. The resort staff were simply the best. It is easy to get to from San Diego, centrally located in beautiful Carlsbad. The Carl Strauss Brewery on the property is a great resturant. If you are looking for a very family friendly, well run resort at very reasonable prices....you cant go wrong with... More

This place is beautiful. They were very helpful and accommodating. The rooms were spacious and very private. We couldn't hear anybody on either side or above us. The pools were active and the adult pool was clean. We just loved it here and if we come back to California, we will definitely stay here again.

Not only was the resort equipped with all the amenities, but the customer service and care throughout rivaled that of the best I have stayed... Our two bedroom suite was beautiful and faced outward to the Pacific on a picturesque February day and eve.

We had so much fun here. The kids enjoyed the pool and the different activities that this resort provided (poolside movie, barbecues and smore's). Legoland is just nearby and we went there twice. The beach is approx. 2miles. The staffs were so friendly and helpful. I will recommend this to all who wants a family oriented resort.

We were taking my grandson to Legoland, and I reserved two rooms for Friday night 6/26 and Saturday night 6/27. I selected this hotel based on a favorable review in the Los Angeles Times, and because it's adjacent to Legoland. I reserved the rooms several weeks in advance. This hotel bills your credit card immediately, charges a cancellation fee of... More

This resort was great! In very short distance of shopping centers, beaches, downtown Carlsbad, Legoland Resort, Sea Life Aquarium. We stayed in a two bedroom vacation villa and it was very spacious! It included a balcony with great views of Carlsbad, full sized kitchen and dining room with all appliances, cookware, and dishes. Master bedroom includes one king size bed,... More

We were placed in this hotel by business colleagues. The hotel itself is conveniently located in Carlsbad, very close to Legoland. It is filled with families visiting the attraction as well as by people who own time shares at the resort, which seemed the primary focus of the management. At check in, we were immediately directed to someone who was... More

We made our week exchange through RICI and were fortunate to exchange into a 2 bedroom. This facility is extremely well maintained (inside and out) and the unit we stayed in was spotless!

We stayed in the hotel portion of the resort and it was wonderful. Resort is child-friendly with kid activities throughout the day at minimal cost (arts and crafts mostly). We had a great time at Pizza and Bingo night as well as the Ice Cream Social. The best part was the family pool with the water-play area. You can sit... More

Very comfortable resort on the hill overlooking the Pacific. Staff was friendly and helpful, though we had no real issues that they had to deal with. We had a one bedroom unit which was very comfortable with a full kitchen, a HUGE bathroom (really a bit of overkill with a large shower and a standard tub) and small patio Low/no... More
