When we arrived a bit after 4:00 check-in, we were told that our villa wouldn't be ready until 5:30. BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD. TOTALLY INEXCUSABLE!!! However, the person doing our check-in, explored possibilities and was eventually able to find a villa for us in the same complex that we had initially been scheduled for by Marriott (the Jasmine Court addition...

It was almost perfect. I just really don't appreciate a 4:00 check in and 11:00 check out. But besides that, everything was great. Beautifully kept grounds, different swimming pools to choose from, great views of the golf course (we don't see a lot of green grass in San Diego), lots of activities are offered for both children and adults and...

Can't fault it in any way fantastic villas large spacious great amenities brilliant wifi even by the pool. Service was excellent as in all the Marriott we've stayed in. Lots of classes and activities for kids. Lots of pools to choose from. Even can use me marriot amenities but don't order pool side as service bad and very expensive

Stayed June 14 through June 18. Room 2663&2664. This is the two bedroom, 2 bathroom unit. It faces the interior golf course with the lake and water falls. Arrived at 4:05 pm. Room not ready but provided phone number and told to expect a call in 30 minutes. That never happened. Went to counter and spoke with different rep. Sorry... More

We spent the first weekend in June for a family reunion. Our units were at the smaller pool section and the weather was 105 so we enjoyed the pool and the opportunity to catch up, chill & grill. The beds were made with the nice quality pacific coast linens and the units were beautiful. The pictures do not do it... More

We travel a lot and have been in all sorts of hotels all over the US and I can't believe that people pay this much for so little. A friend and I picked this hotel for a one night stay so our 12 year old girls could have a fun day between two back to back trips. Normally I don't... More

Went there for a family vacation and had the best time. Pools are great, villas are beyond wonderful and the staff is exemplary. We were there for 3 days and had a wonderful vacation. Would go back soon.

Recently traveled here with my husband and young daughters. The property is very big and has a lot to offer. Free yoga classes during the week, a kids center with small rock climbing wall, a playground, and multiple pools. Our room was the perfect size for a family of four. The only negative was we were there from a Weds... More

This property was clean and nice. The rooms are really large - we had a 2 bedroom villa. The rooms are bigger and newer than nearby Marriott Shadow Ridge. The kitchen is well appointed. Free wi-fi is a bonus. The actual resort itself looks a bit like an apartment complex rather than a resort. The kids club is lacking compared... More
