“Fun for the family.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The Omni La Costa is a fun hotel for those who enjoy outdoor activities .... and especially for a family with young children. The hotel offers 2 kiddie pools with fun slides, an adult pool, golf course, tennis courts (both hard and clay), and close proximity to LegoLand and San Diego's wonderful beaches. The summertime atmosphere is vibrant and exciting. We were enjoying a family reunion, and although all staff were very friendly, kudos go to the catering manager, Steve Lockhart. Steve was extraordinarily efficient, accommodating, friendly and helpful. He went out of his way to ensure we had a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Rooms are in several buildings spread out across the Resort. If you wish to be close to the pool, o...

What was once a GREAT hotel and spa is declining with new ownership. A down grade in lotions and accessories at the world famous spa, lack of professionalism amongst the staff, and new decor more appropriate for a Marriott than a top resort and spa. If you stayed at La Costa in the past, this is not the same experience you were used to. Prepare to be disappointed.

What a wonderful weekend away with my wife. The Omni lived up to its reputation of service and style, and the Spa did not disappoint. The Blue Fire Grill on the other hand DID disappoint. 5 Diamond pricing with 2 Star service; the server was inattentive; the ice tea was out of the soda gun; the food was good, but arrived slow and was warm at best. I will stay at La Cost again, but will stick with our favorite restaurants in the area next time. Bummer.

I thought that this resort was very very nice. The room was very big and we had a huge bathroom as well. The balcony overlooked the rest of the outside area but we could also look towards the mountains. The setting was very relaxing. We felt like we were in the mountains. I thought that overall the hotel could have been a little better considering this was such a prestigious resort, but I really have no complaints.

The Hotel grounds are lovely and welcoming. It has lots to do for the whole family. I found the main spa area to be more like an airport than a waiting room. NOT relaxing at all. The service was not good in Bistro 65 or the spa café and even worse in the nail salon. The service however was excellent at Blue fire Grill. I am really disappointed that the service was so bad at such a beautiful place.

A very upscale nice property ruined by a lousy a/c system that turns off when you leave the room. Why would I enjoy returning from a dinner in an expensive hotel to have the temperatue 85 degrees because the room was empty!took 1 hour to cool off, I took even longer

The hotel was spotless, energetic and wonderful. There are activities planned for all ages and music playing through out. The room was generously spacious and very clean and comfortable. We will be making plan for a return visit with the kids soon, Great family resort.
