“Excellent Resort for a Perfect Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We choose this property based on its proximity to the beach. It turned out to be much more than we expected in a resort. The staff was amazing and very helpful! The resort has many activities available for families with small children (pool table, tennis, basketball court, volleyball, crafts, movie nights, etc) however if you have older children traveling with you, like we did, the adult pool is wonderful for you are not forced to be with small children while you relax. The condo was clean and furnished well with fireplaces and nice patios or balconies.

The beach is directly across the street so morning walks on the beach are easy and the resort provides all the beach supplies you may need (beach chairs, towels, boggie boards, etc) to enjoy a nice day on the beach. The resort is close to grocery stores and restaurants so easy to find food too.

Our family will certainly utilize this property again on our next trip to Carlsbad! We have no negatives to share - it is a wonderful resort!

Room Tip: A second or third floor room would provide a view of the ocean; however the first floor is not bad e...

This is a wonderful resort to enjoy pool and beach time. In addition, there are many activities for both children and adults to enjoy. It is well planned and geared for family fun. There are many "toys" for the beach i.e. chairs, boogie boards, towels, umbrellas to check out.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the third floor if available. This allows for a nice view.

Green Features: They have placed around the property re-cycle bins. Signs in rooms advising to place soiled towels on the floor if finished using them. Otherwise, they won't be replaced therefore cutting down on laundering.

We had our family reunion here last week. Our rooms were excellent- high vaulted ceilings, very clean and spacious and we had an amazing view of the ocean! We loved being able to check out towels, boogie boards, sand toys, wagons and chairs from the activities department- that came in handy when traveling from another state!! The staff is friendly and helpful. Andrea at the front desk was very helpful with a misunderstanding at check out over the bill. We did not realize that we were not charged until checkout and ended up not getting the lower quoted price when we booked the rooms; that it was just to reserve the rooms. We did appreciate her help and time.
For the price you pay a night- we wish the check in/check out time was more flexible. For a family resort it is not very convenient to be checked out by 10. For the price we wish they offered a complimentary breakfast of some sorts.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and loved being at a resort that was family friendly! We actually attempted to extend our stay- but it was completed booked!

We stay here every year. Love the views. We really wish it was closer to the village as we love to walk around the shops. It would be great if they had a shuttle to drop off and pickup those of us who would like to go to the village and not hassle with the parking.

We stayed here during July 4th weekend. Rooms and bathrooms are good size and our balcony was facing the sea so it was really nice. You have lot of choices of activities-Tennis, Table Tennis, Basket ball, well equipped gym .etc. Resort provides everything from Beach ball to boogie boards,wagons for hassle free time at the beach which is right across the street.
You can check out board games to play in your room too. Only thing that sauna was not working, which was okay as it was summer but if I am going there in winter I would want that as we paid around 380 per night.

Only complain I had was we were two families together and requested two rooms next to each other well in advance but were given rooms in separate level. Also the curtains

Overall satisfied with our stay.All the staff members were very friendly and courteous. May come back if get the better price deal.

Room Tip: Higher floor. Bathrooms are more spacious.

Green Features: Very good. Shampoo and lotion bottles are available only upon request. Towels get changed only every other day.

A nice , very pretty getaway place to unwind or just chill out with the family. It definitely says "family" rather than "romantic" if you need to know that. Very well appointed-Ask to see the different room layouts- they're so many - I didn't know that we could've had one where the sofa faced the patio. Ok, so... I didn't give it a 5th star because of these things -.... even though it may not be a big deal to most- ....1-No comp breakfast ..except coffee/tea/cocoa...Nowhere to eat on site. (except snacky stuff in machines). Big problem was the checkin/out hours! Check-in wasn't until 4PM! and Checkout was..10AM- that was too early for us with kids, etc....after that they start charging 25.00 every 30mins. At the 'Family BBQ /Pool event' ..they only had 2 people cooking the food at the grill for too many guest.. and the wait to get our food was longer than we actually wanted to stay-
They also ran out of bag chips that come with the burgers !..but charged the same. The lemonade /or ice tea was VERY diluted. ....now that you know this - you can be informed- Have fun.. There's plenty nearby quality grocery stores etc.. and the kitchen is very well appointed

Room Tip: Have the front desk show you the different floor plans- there's a lot to choose from.

Seapointe is such a beautiful resort. The staff is always so incredibly friendly and the locations is absolutely perfect. I loved that there was an adult pool, a perfect place to watch the sunset. I could not have asked for a better couple of days off!
