We have been staying at Pala Mesa for about 15 yrs now and always enjoy ourselves. The grounds are beautiful and the golf course follows the same. Aquaterra restaurant is our favorite and we eat there every night. Our favorite dish is the parmesan crusted halibut. Any server we have encountered is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean... More

We had a great time at Pala Mesa. The staff was great, the Aquaterra restaurant was exceptional. We had breakfast and dinner there and the service and food was the best we've had in along time. Everything came out just as requested and ontime and with a smile. The rooms were nice and also clean and fresh. My buddy and... More

Our daughter gifted us with a golf getaway weekend at this resort. In telling my friends where we were going, I found that it is often confused with the Pala Casino. This is NOT the casino, it is a golf resort with a great restaurant on site. We were in a deluxe room, which means we got a spacious room... More

Aandmrun, I am glad to hear that you had a relaxing stay. As crazy as the end of the week can get at the resort, it's nice to hear that we managed to accommodate a calm environment for you. We are expecting major renovations this year--which will take care of the tired buildings. We hope you will come back once... More

Do not spend your money at this hotel. To say its a resort is pretty much lying. The golf course is nice but that's about it. The food at the restaurant is average at best. They still have the big box tv's and the rooms are in bad need of a full remodel. The cable isn't digital nor is there... More

CaliforniaBackpacker, I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. I hope that you were informed upon checkout that we are going to be starting a major renovation of the entire resort this year. This will encompass the restaurant, lobby, pro shop, rooms--everything. If you would like to come visit us again once these renovations are done,... More

I grew up in nearby Fallbrook, and, when I was young, the Pala Mesa Resort was the fanciest place to take a family or date around. That was in the 70's - and very little has changed. If you are planning a wedding and need a venue, come to the Pala Mesa Resort: if you love golf and want to... More

My wife and I took a much needed getaway to rest and beat the heat of Phoenix. The grounds are beautiful, the staff pleasant, the golf course excellent and the restaurant adequate. We enjoyed peaceful evening walks in beautiful weather. The rooms were retro 70's BUT unfortunately have a great need to be upgraded. They have 26" tube TV's in... More

Perfect place to stay. Lovely grounds, nice restaurant, and convenient to meet with family and friends. We hiked up to the nearby Winery but found owners not available to serve us. Other than that, the trip was awesome. Hotel a little dated (old-fashioned tv's)
