La Costa is a beautiful space with great pools and potential. However, after waiting 45 minutes in line to check in, we headed to the pool to find every seat taken and the pool itself absolutely packed. It was a weekend, so I thought it must have just been a busy time - but it was the same story all week. Pool was packed to the gills and induced stress. Turns out, La Costa sells memberships to the locals - who flood the hotel over the summer. I couldn't wait to get home to our own pool where at least we can find a chair. As a guest at this hotel, you will feel far from special....they're far more interested in their members than their guests. Think 24-hour fitness at peek time, yet you're paying more for a night than they paid for the summer. Skip it or wait until offseason. I'm confident the positive reviews are from people who visited in the winter or didn't travel with family.
