Who would think you find everything at this resort, great pools dining and relaxation. A wonderful place to celebrate, you have adult only pool which is fantastic. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. So many pretty gardens and trees , once you arrive you may never want to leave. We had a downstairs room, french doors that opened to... More

My kids absolutely loved this resort! It was a very kid friendly place. Kids pool areas could have been cleaner, but the staff was excellent and we had a great family vacation. The location was perfect for all San Diego activities. Eat breakfast in the Marketplace and order room service for the kids for dinner. Much better options for kids... More

We got a good deal on the room for 2 nights on July 4 & 5. However, it was still very pricey. From the fee to self park ($18 p/night), to the daily resort fee ($26 per/day) to the breakfast buffet ($26 each), it all added up very quickly! The adult pool and water slides were great though! Very family... More

La Costa does not live up to its potential and isn't worth the high cost. Resort management is misaligned, employees don't communicate with other "departments", the room was noisy, and the set up wasn't family-friendly. It was crowded, expensive, and poorly run, very disappointing.

Several family activities and many pools to choose from. Got excellent golf deal - child free with paid adult. Was a bit crowded during July 4th holiday but weather was perfect and easy to get to Legoland and San Diego.

Will tell everyone about this place. Everyone was so friendly and the hotel. grounds are amazing. Wish we could have stayed there FOREVER! The room was very spacious and clean. The staff was so sweet. We went to one of the shops and the lady gave my son's some toys that she had. The pools were great! will come back... More

After reading about this resort online it's often rated as a great spot for families especially due to the pool area. I was shocked that the pool area is seriously outdated! The splash pad area has peeling paint. The kiddie pool is a murky color maybe due to the sand?? The lounge chairs and tables are SO old and outdated... More

Made the quick drive (1.75 hrs) down I-5 and were thrilled with spending 3 nights there! Spent most of the time in the spa (which is totally amazing!) relaxing, eating, reading in the co-ed pool area but also indulged in 2 treatments each day too! BlueFire Grill was fantastic...the halibut was awesome as was the short rib...also at the bar... More

La Costa Resort is an excellent place to stay... the rooms are great ( a little small but OK) and the place is so peaceful! There is something for everyone at this resort. The food at the bar was excellent, the staff was very professional and happy to help and make sure we were enjoying our stay.
