It's called a resort for good reason; big pool, clubhouse with a great pool table, nice room with a spotless, fully-equipped kitchenette and it's right between two great restaurants. It's across the street from del mar race track and right by the beach.

We will definitely be interested in staying at Winner's Circle again if we ever return to SoCal. We stayed a week on a timeshare exchange. While there, in Dec 2014/Jan 2015, one building was closed as it was being remodeled. It is the last building to be completed and then all units will be remodeled. We had a ground floor... More

Not worth the trade...stayed ony one night out of 7. Smelly and old....noise from generator or something felt like a motorcycle running under the room. Switched rooms due to smell then ended up with a worse view. They need to demolish and start over.

We were here on a time share exchange and I don't plan to come back. At check in the clerk couldn't have been less helpful. After traveling for hours we needed a restroom.

We stayed here for the week of Thanksgiving with my parents. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. It was overlooking the pool which I think all units are. It was very clean.

Even after the expensive updates (hey, I'm an owner and paid US$500. for my 1 BDRM unit in a charitable auction years ago and cannot give it away) I was disappointed in Oct 2014. The weather was far better than in 2013. The welcome continental breakfast on Monday is garbage - avoid that.
