Recently I visited San Diego for the first time and, at the recommendation of a local friend, found a good deal via Trip Advisor for three nights at La Costa. I was there on business, but boy did this place make it feel like pleasure.
I particularly enjoyed all of the lush grounds with tons of flowers after the barreness of my East Coast winter. They have casual dining outside looking out over the golf course with the "mountains" framing the background. I took an evening dip in the hot tub which was delightful. This was by the pool restricted to adults. They also had an amazing pool with water slide and other features that once-upon-a-time my family would have gone gaga over.
Food was good with a nice selection and wait staff attentive.
Only thing that could be improved is the hike from my room to the parking lot where I had to keep my rental car. It was about a half mile. Truth be told, I did not mind because it was gorgeous... and I had just gotten my fitbit and appreciated the steps!
I would recommend, but don't pay sticker rates. Look for a bargain.
