We have stayed here through our timeshare since 2013, and it has been a steady decline. As a business owner and entrepreneur, I really truly hate writing a bad review, but, at this point, I feel it is so bad that I would be doing a diservice if I don't warn others before making the hike to Ramona. Let me... More

Our resort is always happy to receive feedback from our guest but feel this review is not warranted to this degree. We feel bad that your request from GEO was not forwarded to the resort for a downstairs location. Our recommendation in the future is to contact the resort directly to be sure your request is noted on your reservation... More

Long time well built well maintained time share property that was put together when space was celebrated rather than an afterthought. If you enjoy tennis or golf this is the place. There is a great outdoor pool and hot tub. Family friendly for all ages.

I was looking for a timeshare closer to san Diego, but this was the closest I could get. My son and I found there was a lot more to do on property than the last resort we went to in Big Bear. I mean really, tennis courts, pools (which were hardly ever crowded), daily activities for the kids. Saturday night... More

Our experience began with checking in with Donna, a very nice and knowledgeable lady. She explained all of the ins and outs to us and answered any questions we had. A great lady. Our 1 bedroom condo was wonderful. It had everything we needed. The master bedroom was large with a wonderful king size bed. The living area was just... More

I have been coming to the Good Life at the San Diego Country Estates for over 30 years, since I was in my early teens. It has been a vacation getaway for my family almost my entire life. The property has gotten much nicer, much classier and far fancier in the past few years and have enjoyed a real renaissance.... More

We visited this timeshare facility for my sister-in-law as she wanted to book it for next January. We viewed the two bedroom which was spacious and had a wood burning fireplace and washer and dryer. These units are spacious, but dated. A little hard to find even with mapquest and google maps. Near stables if you like to ride and... More

Overall, this timeshare was one of the most comfortable timeshares I have experienced in over 25 years of timeshare exchanges. My husband and I had a two bedroom, two bathroom unit and each bedroom had a king size bed with a pillow top mattress, which was especially comfortable for a timeshare but not particularly firm. Despite that my husband and... More

I'm embarrassed to say that this is our 'home' timeshare resort and having just spent a week there, we will not be going back unit they upgrade it! We hadn't been in 4 years but we thought we would go back to see how things are.... I visited the resort 20 years ago (mid -90s) and the place still has... More

This special hotel is located in a planned residential area beautiful for both its natural surroundings and for its landscaping. It accesses over 100 miles of intersecting wooded trails through riparian areas in greenways between housing. There are a dozen tennis courts, swimming pool, playground and yet it was very quiet when we stayed there for a week. We saw... More

San Diego Country Estates is definitely in the country and so not near San Diego. It was a little over an hour. We had a one bedroom timeshare that was more than ample in size for the 2 of us. We did not have a remodeled unit. It was somewhat dated but we were quite comfortable with washer, dryer, full... More
