La Costa is a beautiful space with great pools and potential. However, after waiting 45 minutes in line to check in, we headed to the pool to find every seat taken and the pool itself absolutely packed. It was a weekend, so I thought it must have just been a busy time - but it was the same story all... More

I stayed here for a business retreat. Overall it's a nice property. Had some issues with the reservation. I requested a room with 2 beds and they "upgraded" me to a Villa which was very nice but had only one bed and was at the far end of the property. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and luckily I... More

This is our first experience at la costa. We live in San Clemente so this was simply a very expensive stay-cation for us. We were not very impressed with the pool area for families. The towels we received were old bleached out blue thin towels that should heve been retired years ago. You,d get nicer towels at a Motel 6!... More

From a very poor check in experience to an over sold pool (local members rolled in daily), the overall experience at La Costa left me wanting more. Maybe I should have taken those recommendations and stayed at the Legoland Hotel. I was hoping for a more relaxed experience that held the kids attention.

Great Place for Family, the resort is big and has everything that a family needs, the pools and the kids clubs were great, the golf courses were a little disappointing for the price but still above average. We will come again.

Incredible hotel and staff. So relaxing to have everything on property. Golf right outside of the lobby, adult pool and kids adventure pool, great marketplace for grab and go food, plenty of food options, shopping, spa that is rated #1 in North America...the list goes on! Did I forget to mention the Chopra center for ultimate relaxation?

I've been here at the La Costa for 2 nights now for a conference. The first plus is the staff. All are friendly and helpful. Some have been working here for 30 + years! When I arrived , I parked in the round about so I could check in. Once checked in, the front desk clerk said a bellman would... More

One of my favorite things to do with the family is to find a resort that has it all so that you never have to leave. And this is the place! With my girls 8 and 10, it was the perfect getaway with great water slides, heated pools, kids activities, and the beautiful San Diego weather. I would have given... More

It was comical. The service at this resort was beyond terrible. The valet service could not have screwed up more. An expensive room had no view and the air conditioner could not be adjusted to a reasonable temperature. There was no turn down service and lack of follow-through on promised amenities. l I have traveled the world and stayed in... More

Great place to stay. Try to check in before the sun goes down as it can be a little confusing trying to find your room. Food is excellent! The beds are amazing to sleep in. The pools are fantastic. We have an 8 and 4 year old and they did not want to leave. There are many pools to choose... More
