“Lovely and relaxing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The hotel and the facilities were amazing - I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It had one of the nicest bathrooms I have ever seen! The infinity pool was lovely also, it was great to lay out and watch the golfers in the distance.

We stayed from August 20 - 31 while attending a Chopra Center event. It was very convienent for that purpose. It seems like a little bit older property but was kept up well. Our room appeared to have been recently remodeled. We ate breakfast there several times and the buffet was excellent. The meeting rooms were first rate. There are a LOT of families with small children there but they have an audlts only pool area that made sitting by the pool relaxing. It's about 30 minutes north of most San Diego attractions. One negative was that it got much more hot and humid one day than was typical for the area and the room AC did not keep up. We called maintenance and they arrived promptly to make some adjustments but it did not help much. Other guests were complaining about the same thing on that particular day.

fantastic amenities and beautiful venue. Definitely stay more than 2 days. Yoga center is spectacular. Take as many classes as you can fit in. Also suggest dinner from one of the balconies and the golf is also well above average.

Recently stayed here for a business conference and was very impressed. Great accommodations, lovely setting, professional and welcoming staff. Certainly pricey for room rates, and the amenities are well overpriced, but certainly a beautiful resort.

Brought the family along for a business trip, and we were satisfied with the hotel. A lot of shops, places to eat, and it was convenient to the Safari Park. We were not as impressed with the room as everything else (it had a musty smell to it), but overall it was a nice place.

Dear Derrick H: It's terrific to hear that your family was able to join you on your recent business trip here. With so many famous San Diego area amenities nearby, not to mention our waterslides and activities, there's a lot for famlies to do. I hope that your family created some special memories while here.

We booked our room a month ahead. We asked for the family suite since we had 3 adults and 2 children. When we got to our room it was one room with three beds. When I called the front desk they said they no longer had the room I asked for available. They made up for it by moving us to a room with a bedroom with a king bed, hide a bed , and 2 roll-away beds (no extra cost). The bathroom had doors that you could see through with no lock which was a little uncomfortable. We enjoyed the beautiful grounds and the pool. Our 9 year old enjoyed the water slide. Other than that it was overrated. When we checked out we were charged $35 a day for the roll aways and $87 for someones bar bill. After I said something they took off the charges.

Room Tip: The food is very expense there. We found some good food with our GPS.

Dear StephanieH: Thank you for taking time to share your comments. I apologize that you did not receive the accommodation type that you had requested for your family and for the billing errors upon checkout (I'm glad to hear our team worked quickly to remedy both situations). It's great to hear that you enjoyed the beautiful setting and the pools and waterslides. We appreciate your feedback.
