My check-in and check-out was messed up but a beautiful place with friendly staff. Self parking is inconvenient. Lighting is room is Obama mandated non working CFL type bulbs than fully light after you've run into the tub. For a convention location, it is costly to get this property. A downtown San Diego location is a better alternative.

Stayed a full week in late September 2013. Upon arriving, I was greeted by a Valet Attendant. After check-in the valet pointed me to my room which was a nice haul on the other side of the property. I was offered to valet or "self park", either way I had to schlep my own luggage. My room was clean but... More

Beautiful location and renovation. Spa nice. Staff knowledgeable.. but a bit pricey. Rooms were beautiful and clean. Landscaping amazing. Good restaurants and service. Depak Chopra center for those who desire to know more about meditation .

The La Costa is an extremely pleasant place to stay! It is beautiful! Don't skip the spa! AMAZING!! It is clean and a nice place to relax. Perfect for families, a friend getaway, or a romantic couples retreat.

Be prepared to not want to leave once you get here. We enjoyed the spa which was amazing..from perfectly perched towels and spf 30 sunscreen available at the spa pool, rushing water showers, hot tub and attention to every detail. Spa treatments come with a day at the spa.. WORTH IT!! or just pay the daily fee to enjoy feeling... More

La Costa has so many great qualities - fantastic spa (and spa cafe), pools, tennis courts (including clay!), a game room and lots of options for dining. We really enjoyed our stay except for the noise - hallway noise was loud in the room and our patio overlooked the golf course (yay!), but also the maintenance golf carts zipping by... More

Although this was a business trip, I was able to slip in a spa treatment (massage). Meeting rooms were complete with a nice breakfast and lunch. It was a thoroughly enjoyable, top notch experience from the moment I arrived.

I stayed at La Costa on a business trip; but the leisure activities - Yoga, Tennis and Golf particularly - looked very interesting and I'd welcome another visit to explore some of those amenities! Carlsbad is lovely and this resort is a great reflection of the beauty all around. Loved the privacy of the rooms with the court-yard design.

We spent the night here in May 2013 as part of a company get together, and the hotel was perfect. The rooms were large, airy, and decorated beautifully. Check in & out is very smooth, and there is plenty of parking. We are not golfers, but those in our party that were enjoyed the course. This is a perfect place... More
