Lovely open air wedding setting. Great room with a comfortable bed and large bathroom. We enjoyed a very good breakfast on the terrace in the company of a humming bird - just a shame it was not included in the price.

Best kept secret in Northern San Diego county. Yes, the place is a little dated, but it very clean, the grounds are stunning and the Aquaterra restaurant was outstanding. There may be places that are fancier, or more fashionable... But not as charming, quiet, and serene.

We came to California to golf and to get away from the winter in Canada. Did not disappoint! Golf course is in excellent shape! Resort was a great surprise, I read all the reviews before coming...they were not good. After checking in we headed to our room, we found a nice large room and very clean. Though it is dated... More

The room smelled gross and musty, the bedding was stained, the AC wasn't working, and the shower/tub was stained. The paring area is really dark. The outside entrance looks nice and I didn't expect the room to be so bad. I'm glad I only stayed 1 night!

Claudia A., I am so sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the room. So far as the AC goes, I hope that an engineer was able to fix it for you. Also, we are expecting a complete makeover of the resort this year. That will encompass not only each room but also the rest of the grounds, including... More

Laid back hotel and golf. Nothing fancy but we enjoyed the lack of any pretentiousness. Rustic charm with golf! Gotta love it! Restaurant was a special surprise with creative menu. Everything beautifully prepared and presented. Kudos to the chef! Entire staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back when we need a quick affordable getaway.

Dear MrsRAZRHWK, We will be making some big and exciting changes to our property in the upcoming year. We hope to keep that "rustic charm" that you mentioned and make us easily accessible for all walks of life. The stigma for some resorts can come off "pretentious" and I am glad you didn't get that impression with us. Thanks again... More

Make sure you don't have any valuables in your car! We lost two duffel bags but luckily nothing too valuable. No security and 3 cars, including ours, was broken into. Tried calling the front desk the next morning and tried 3 different extensions and no one answered. Tried calling back 15 minutes later with same result. Good to know no... More

My husband and I went to a marriage retreat this weekend and I can't complain the food was DELICIOUS! !! The place is not modern but it was clean... employees were nice the only suggestion to the front desk is to give all the info when people check in like a map of the resort, things to do, special, etc......

Dear yerikua, Thank you for your review! I have spoken personally to my Front Desk team and have placed a few procedures to make sure guests are fully aware of their surroundings! I know our property is large and getting to know it can be a challenge. But hopefully these changes will serve in the betterment of all future guests! More

Our daughter was married at Pala Mesa Resort on January 4, 2014. The grounds and landscaping were neatly manicured and extremely clean.
