We stayed here last year during the summer. PROS: - My children (ages 7, 5 and 3) loved it. They loved walking out the door onto the beach. - They also loved the platform that they could swim to and jump off. - Your stay comes with Chula Vista passes as well. - Enough charcoal grills for everyone. CONS: -... More

If we weren't staying with kids, I would rate this a 1 star. It is a small, not very busy place where the small, clean beach and a playground are literally at the doorstep. They have enough charcoal grills and picnic tables for all the guests. The manager/staff is very friendly and welcoming The place has many faults. When we... More

We have been back several times since and recently had our daughters birthday party at the resort (we rented 4 cabins & had approximately 20 of our family & friends with us). The owners are friendly and very hands on. The cabins are clean & cozy. There is... More

I kept socks or sandals on the entire time inside. - There was no DVR and only 5 channels on the TV. - The bathroom... More

This is not a fancy cottage; but for a basic cottage, it was nice. The family that runs it is very nice and very accessible. They were always around and incredibly friendly. I normally stay at 4 or 5 star hotels, so this wasn't quite what I was used to, however, when I think about the fact that it was... More

They use the term "resort" very loosley! The rooms smell musty and moldy. The carpets are filthy & disgusting (probably original carpet). The rooms have insects and spiders and dingy beds and linens, old school T.V.s with pirated cable, microscopic bars of soap, no shampoo, limited paper-thin towels. Rusty grills, nasty paint-chipped and dirty picnic tables, the playground is a... More
