If you're traveling to California look at the responses from folks who live in California. It's a solid tip. They are much harder to please in their own neck of the woods. That said, we can be a bit harsh on our own. La Costa was a premier property some years ago, and they've been trying hard to reacquire that... More

My husband and I recently stayed 4 days at the La Costa Spa with a work related sales celebration. We had several group dinners, receptions on the patio and indivdual meals in the restaurant. The food was excellent for each event and they dealt with the crowd well. We had fun after dinner sitting outside around the "fire and ice"... More

Stayed in a plaza room three nights (great deal from hotels[...]: $225/night, third night free). From the reservation, they knew that we were a party of 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 2 and 4yrs) and I think they took that into consideration when they gave us our room: on the ground floor with french doors that opened to a...

We had a awesome time, the facilities are beautiful. Great gym and great service. We took my 7 year old to Legoland (La Costa has a great package deal) and the San Diego Zoo. Beautiful Spa, be sure to make reservation in advance. They also have great activities for kids, be sure to call ahead of time.

Stayed at La Costa on a business trip and was very dissapointed in the service. For the prices charged (we called it La Cost Ya) the service should be top notch but the staff does not seem to care. Although check in is supposed to be at 4pm, had to wait over an hour for a room. Bathroom was not... More

Where do I start? We arrived right before our tee time, so we were rushing to the golf course. First, we needed to unload our luggage...we finally found the concierge, despite the poor signage throughout the resort. The concierge was of litttle help. In fact, when I called later in the stay they said that they would call me back... More

I arrived at La Costa Resort with the hope of unwinding and rejuvenating... and wow, it exceeded my expectations. My room was spacious and seemed to be brand new; as did all of the buildings and gardens. The flowers are just breathtaking... so much color. The restaurants were terrific as well, both at the golf course and the new Blue... More

My husband and I stayed at La Costa to celebrate our anniversary. We stay in the area frequently and picked the hotel over others we have enjoyed because we read that it had been recently renovated. We booked a suite. On the positive side, the grounds, facilities and room were very nicely kept and decorated. However, the service at the... More
