Lovely and well-appointed, clean, excellent service. Close to San Diego, nice golf course. Rooms were very clean, modern, and contained everything needed for comfort. Hotel employees were very friendly and helpful. The best surprise was a farmer's market on the grounds with fresh food and craft vendors.

The one bedroom apt where we stayed was very nice. Comfortable bed with alot of extra lines on hand. The kitchenette was fully furnished right down to dishwasher soap. My only disappointment was a lack of privacy in the bathroom. A mandatory cross thru from bedroom to living room made it such. Other than that we would stay once more.

In this hotel resort, I thought I've seen the most beautiful scenery in the world. Every early morning, I saw people working diligently in the property. They greeted us with sincere smiles, These beautiful smiles will be in my memory for a long time. The kitchen even had a pair of scissors available, very considerate and convenient. I stayed in...

I wish I could write my review about our "planned" two night stay using some extra points, but we were called back home after our first nights arrival due to family medical emergency.

We stayed in a unit at Villas on the Greens during the first week of February. The unit was clean, well equipped, and centrally located - an easy walk to almost everything the resort had to offer, including their village, theater, restaurant and wellness center. Their magic show, "Illusions." was clearly aimed at the youngsters, and their production of "The... More

We enjoyed our 2 bedroom villa very much. The kids had enough space to play. The kitchen was spacious and well stocked. We enjoyed cooking and grilling some of our suppers here.
