“Lovely Grounds, Good Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

La Costa has a legendary reputation. It was great to be given an excuse to stay there (friend's birthday event). We loved the beautiful buildings, spacious grounds and our lovely room. The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. Restaurant food (typical for a hotel) seemed a bit overpriced, but the service was good. My main complaint is the pool situation. I want to swim laps and get some exercise without having to dodge kids, floating toys and adult drinkers. La Costa markets itself as a spa and wellness resort. Where is the adult lap pool?

Beautiful setting in Southern California. La Costa is a golf resort with scenic facilities for work and play. I stayed in the Signature Rooms section near the Clubhouse while I was attending a conference. The room was very nicely done. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning, soaking tub. and other room amenities were all first rate.

The food, pools and facilities are all great.

Room Tip: Signature rooms near the clubhouse

Very nice, comfortable, friendly staff. The rooms are a little dated by still nice. The Spa was great. The pools are nice but they did not seem to have very well staffed facilities at the pools to order food and drinks.

I had heard terrific review from a colleague and since I am an OMNI select guest member, I elected to book a stay here. (Note, this is inland in Encinitas and we normally choose to stay in Del Mar at L'Aubuerge right on the beach.) From the moment of check in, we had a grand time. For kids - they had a daycare center that caters to small tots all the way on up to teens which is unusual for most hotels which start at 3 years, also water slides, kid pool, music in the evening and enough room for our 2 year old to run around freely. For adults - they had a full gym, 21+ years EDGE pool area, liabations and many activities. They also have options to purchase rooms a la condo tel style that may be of interest for those who are looking for rental income. My only 2 detractors for our stay would be the F&B options - not up to par for the type of resort, you may want to dine off property a night or two. And the spa needs a little bit of updating. All in all, we will be back.

Room Tip: they have a variety of room choices - from regular hotel type to villa suites that can be rented fro...

It's hard to leave the resort to go to work each morning. It appears the resort has so much to offer. The pools are fantastic and the room is really nice. The staff are really attentive and helpful. The only small complaint is that there's no buffet breakfast which makes it challenging to get to work on time when breakfast takes a while.

Outstanding in all respects. Beautiful grounds and location. Very helpful and friendly staff. Quiet rooms. Nearby towns with excellent food and entertainment. Beautiful pools, spa, golf course and tennis courts.

Way too expensive, and for one person they did not have any other choices. I paid over $775 per night. The spa area is too small for the amount of people around. The room was noisy for it was next to the pool. They will charge you for the bar without checking if it was used or not. The bell boys are too busy to help.
