I attended a conference here in September and got there a day early to take advantage of the location and the spa. Signage for check in is a little hard to define and locating the main desk wasn't that easy. It's pretty much at the back of the resort if you are driving in. Then I can guarantee it is... More

This is the second time we've stayed here, first time without kids, this time with both our girls 6 and 8. The girls absolutely loved this place, the pool, the gardens, our room, the restaurant, the arcade room, everything about it was perfect, the room with two queen beds and a sofa bed was huge, right next to the pool...

We chose La Costa because we've stayed there before. Our 5 year old son really liked the family pool and waterslide at La Costa. Plus, this resort is quite close to Legoland as well.

I am a regular visitor to La Costa. I first went there quite a few years back, and have continued to vacation there even though it has changed from being a more exclusive golf resort to a more family friendly place. The facilities are wonderful. I am a dancer, and find the gym and Pilates facilities to be terrific. The... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the La Costa Resort and Spa. The rooms are nice, the bathrooms even nicer. The unpleasant surprise was the hardest bed ever. I couldn't believe it. They are remodeling this winter and I definitely would go back after they change their beds!

I have stayed at hotels all over the world and LaCosta was one of the best. The room was great and the area and staff were also great. My wife and I will come back first chance we get.

Nice place, nice rooms, loved the pools, but anything else costs extra. Got one free $15 pass for yoga at the Chopra center, free meditation at Chopra center, free aquatone in the pool, free morning walk. Unfortunately, you have to choose between the free meditation or free walk - coincidently, they are both at the same time! Everything else, and... More

On a quick weekend getaway to escape the desert heat we made the mistake of staying at this resort. The property is beautiful; picture perfect. The public spaces, good. The guest room, styled by the old Holiday Inn. Unfortunately, our expectations are higher than the quality we experienced. I am not sure but I think the ownership of this resort... More

The La Costa Resort and Spa is a lovely looking hotel. The rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. The beds were comfortable. We were traveling with a family group - my husband and I and our 3 children, my mother-in-law and father-in-law and my brother and sister-in-law and their 2 children. We stayed in the Villas, a short walk, or... More

I have stayed at this property 4 years ago and loved it. This time, however, it was shockingly unpleasant, not one service person here was pleasant, everybody had short and unhelpful attitude, felt like we are inconveniencing them by our presence, requested a late check-out and got charged a full nights rate. Regrettable. The La Costa suite was old and... More
