“Know Before You Go”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

La Costa Resort is a beautiful piece of property but it's good idea to check what season it is before you decide on this resort. We were there in late July and we didn't realize this resort is an extremely popular resort for families during the summer. We've been here before but it was last fall when apparently, it was low season.

Normally this resort is excellent and it's not their fault they're so popular but the crowds were large and it appeared the resort did not hire extra workers. The swimming pools, the restaurants, the coffee shop-market place, and the valet pick-up/drop off all had long lines. I understand this, however, past experience had no waits.

Staff were extremely friendly and apologized profusely for any delays which we appreciated and they helped make our experience a pleasant one. Our room was beautiful, clean, and quiet. The food and bar service was excellent, the golf was excellent, and the views were perfect.

I'd recommend this resort and we'll be staying here again....just know before you go, that it's extremely crowded during the summer.

This Hotel was great! First impression at the bell stand, the staff was very friendly and willing to help. Check-in was smooth, Matt was very pleasant. The guest rooms were clean and actually smelled fresh. Service across the board was exceptional. For a meeting planner like me, it is rare to find a great property with exceptional staff!!

I booked two nights in one of the more expensive rooms at this resort and then made the mistake of reading other reviews on this site. Hence, I was expecting the worst, even though I had once visited this resort a few years ago.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience: my room was lovely and clean, the resort was beautiful and well-maintained, and the staff was all very pleasant (except maybe for some of the staff in the Marketplace--could stand to be a little nicer).
Although there was a mistake with my room, the front desk staff ended up fixing the problem fairly quickly and moving me to the room that had been described in my confirmation e-mail, with a minimum of fuss.
There are always lots of activities going on, and even though I didn't participate in much I still enjoyed all the energy at this resort.
The pools ARE very crowded, I will warn other readers. Even the "adults only" pool, which unfortunately seemed to have quite a few under-21 people sneaking in, was overly crowded. However, I visited over a weekend, so this was not a complete surprise.
Overall a great resort and one that I would love to visit again and again!

Nice hotel, clean and friendly staff. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the hotel had a great gesture they delivered a bottle of wine and chocolates to our room. Valet parking was great. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We recommended to others.

What a beautiful vacation. The room was great and people were friendly. So many different areas/pools to enjoy this property. We also took a day trip to LaJolla to broaden our experience. Would recommend this highly.

Customer Service was immaculate, food was terrific from everywhere on site. We had a chance to stay for an entire week, this allowed us to experience all aspects do the resort. I would recommend this to everyone, the people there are professional and dedicated.

We stayed here for a much needed family vacation in the sun. The resort has many different pool areas and we used the family and kid section during our stay. If you have little ones this is a great spot since they have a pool that is no more than 3 ft deep and a water park that they can run around in. They also offer a kids club and child care services but my daughter was too young to participate in either. There were plenty of choices in regards to places to eat even though they were a bit on the pricey side but that's to be expected at a resort. We stayed in a villa room and had a full kitchen so we were able to go to the grocery store(Jimbo's is awesome) and not have to eat out for every meal.The fitness center is top notch and hardly ever crowded.

The hotel is about 30 minutes from the San Diego Zoo and about 45 minutes from Coronado. Easy parking situation or you can valet. I would also recommend checking out the local beaches like Solano and Cardiff by the Sea. We'll definitely be going back next summer to escape the SF fog!
