“The room was MAGNIFICENT. Had a great time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2009

The room was MAGNIFICENT. We stayed in the Tahitian suite known to us as room 101. It had tropical murals that brought the outside landscaping and beach into the room. The room had that Tommy Bahama look to it making you feel like you were in Hawaii. The outside landscaping was a tropical paradise with carved palms, BBQ, tiki tourches, etc it was very pleasant and relaxing. I would highly recommend this place for a romantic get away...

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay at Ocean Palms Beach Resort. The grounds are exquisite and the place was so tidy, we hated to have to go home. I cannot recommend this resort enough!

While I was traveling around the United States of America, California I have chosen the great hotel Ocean Palms Beach and i can say that was the right choice, since i got perfect service. The staff was very helpful and always eager to help! They even upgraded my room for free!
The territory of the hotel is very nice, very green as there are a lot of trees and flowers everywhere. Everything keeps clean. I liked that Ocean Palms Beach has gym, swimming-pool and Jacuzzi 24-hours a day!

The Hotel Ocean Palms Beach located in the Downtown of the city of Carlsbad where it is very quite and safe. There are bunch of cafes and restaurants everywhere; there is a theatre, movies, shops. Just several steps …. and you are on the beach.
I felt free in asking hotel stuff how to get to Legoland CA, Disneyland, Six flags, San Diego Zoo, Sea World.
Very nice Hotel ! Great staff! Perfect location!
Oh… I completely forgot about the weather: it is wonderful all year round!

My wife and daughter wanted a weekend at the beach and we stumbled on Ocean Palms. It is a tropical paradise with beautiful plants and trees all over the grounds.

Our room was clean and had all the upgrades of a resort for 3-4 times the price.

We will be back soon.

My boyfriend and I are in the fast paced corporate world in LA. We were in dire need of a Hawaiian getaway. Due to time restraints and the economy, that just wasnt possible for us at that time. A friend of ours mentioned Ocean Palms. In just a couple short hours we were enjoying ourselves in lush tropical gardens, beautiful flowers and hand painted murals on our walls. We were right across the street from the beach and within walking distance to local shops and restaurants. Best of all they r pet friendly and we were able to bring our little dog with us. He had a blast playing with Pookie., The Oceanpomeranian. The staff was courteous and helpful at all times, and we could not have had a greater weekend get away and cannot wait to return. We would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped with palm trees and other tropical plantings. You can wander around the property and feel like your in your own piece of paradise. Everything we needed was there - pool, barbeques, putting green, convenience store, beach and sunshine. Very nice quality upgrades to the room.
