We had read reviews and we're not sure what to expect and we're pleasantly surprised. Yes it is an hour to San Diego and most attractions and probably not ideal for families with younger children. Our rooms were spacious and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. ramona is 15 mins away and has a good supermarket and other facilities. There... More

The San Diego country estates is quite and relaxing place to go for a quick get away from Los Angeles. It's far but still close to all the tourist attractions San Diego has to offer. Only a 40 minute beautiful scenic drive from downtown. Close to Barona casino.

My family has been coming here for vacation since the 1970s, so my kids are the 4th generation who have enjoyed this place. There is no better value in San Diego county, the rooms are so spacious that my family of 5 could easily stay there for weeks (and we have). Beautiful grounds, nice pool (though nothing special) and hot... More

Please do not think this is a hate mail report. We booked a week for a stay from Australia, expecting that San Diego Estate was in San Diego, it is not. It was over an hour to San Diego. We expected to be doing an exchange resort booking through RCI. The reason we expected to be in San Diego was... More

We were a family of 4 (4- and 6-year old girls) and recently stayed in a first-floor 2-bedroom/2-bath unit at SDCE, which was huge and gave us plenty of space to spread out. There were three TV's (one in each bedroom, plus one in the main living area), one with a DVD player (living room). The units were really well... More

If your looking for San Diego. This might not be it. But if your like us and want to see all the area. This is ideal. Anza-Borrego desert, the town of Julian California, Barona Valley Ranch Resort & Casino. Ramona is out of the way, but with no traffic. Central to see more of the San Diego/Desert area. From desert... More
