I spent Fathers' Day weekend at La Costa with my wife and two small children. From tee-to-green, so to speak, I couldn't ask for a better experience for Fathers' Day. When we rolled in to the valet parking area at the front, it was apparent (to me anyway) that the valets have taken some of the previous reviewers' comments seriously.... More

Have stayed in similar priced and catagory properties across the States and in other countries. The major disconnect here, as others have noted, is the surprisingly lackluster service. If you don't mind a rather slow, almost indifferent approach it will not be a negative for your stay. Otherwise, it could cause you some frustration and irritation. Agree with another reviewer...

The landscaping is nice, and it looks good from the outside, but the rooms are mediocre and not well kept. The hallways and room kinda smelled, there were a lot of used roomservice trays outside rooms, and my room had some trash (a cufflink package) leftover from a previous guest. I'd also stayed there last year for a conference, and... More

I recently returned from three nights at the La Costa Resort & Spa. I highly recommend this property if you are looking for a truly relaxing and tranquil retreat close to the Pacific. I found La Costa to be quite serene with spectacular grounds and a wonderful golf course. Their new spa is definitely world class and I thoroughly enjoyed... More

I have stayed at this resort 3 times on the past year, most recently for 5 nights. The resort has spent a lot of $ on remodeling so the new rooms, pool area, and spa are indeed excellent. Be sure to ask for a room in the newer areas - the rooms differ quite a bit in the old building... More

There is very little good to say about the La Costa Spa & Resort. Certain expectations accompany the pricing La Costa places on their property and services. They fail to deliver at every turn but one. Beginning with the Registration: From the minor omission of not being given a resort map, to the irritation of not being called when our... More

We valet parked the car. Our car was unloaded immediately and they held our bags until our room was ready. Our room was ready early and the check in staff couldn't have been more efficient. The room was clean and beautiful with an amazing view of the golf course. Our kids had a fabulous time on the waterslides and in... More

One of the most relaxing and refreshing getaways I've had in ages! The resort is beautiful with plenty of things to do so you never have to leave the property. The staff was attentive and courtesy. Our room was beautiful and the amenities perfect. Loved the shopping on property ... spent too much money! BlueFire restaurant was outstanding ... menu... More

I booked the bed and breakfast package for my stay. I had read some of the mixed reviews before arriving and was having doubts, but when I got there I was pretty impressed with how the whole resort looked. It was very well maintained and the grass was so green. The room had a huge tub, large screen tv, and... More

I met a friend at The La Costa resort for a long weekend and had a wonderful experience. The room was large, clean, and very quiet. Our reservation was through Hotwire so our rate was pretty good compared to the regular reservation price. We parked our own car so we didn't have the $25/day fee for parking. The grounds are...
