La Costa was perfection. We drove up to a very warm friendly valet staff who weren't bothered by the Newcomer's questions. The hotel staff was friendly and went out of there way to make you feel special. Everyone from the waitress in the lounge, bartender, gift shop sales staff...everyone. The golf shop Pro's were incredible. It felt like they were long time friends, helpful, friendly, funny, and thoughtful. The resort is beautiful. The view was just gorgeous. It was too cool to consider the pools for me, but did have the opportunity to sit by the pool to read. Others were in the pool, though. My husband managed to play 4 rounds of golf in 3 days....and loved every minute of it. Tough course, but beautiful! I enjoyed the spa--80 min stone massage, 80 min Epicurean Facial and 50 minute scrub with access to all the spa features (saunas, jacuzzi, Roman shower) and had a wonderful lunch......it was true pleasure!
My husband had stopped in one of the gift shops and asked about cigars. He'd seen some in the Golf shop, but not the ones he likes. So, we were getting something in the gift shop & one of the ladies asked if she could help. He asked her about his favorite cigars. She started calling everywhere in the hotel to find some. We told her not to bother, he could get a cigar from the golf shop and thought that that was the end of it.
The next afternoon, we returned to our room to find 2 of his favorite cigars with a card saying to accept the cigars as the hotel's gift.
That's way above & beyond customer service.
We loved the Legend's Restaurant. The nightly specials are such a great deal! Thurs nite we ate a salad, Lobster w/ potatoes and vegetables followed by a wonderful dessert for $24.95! That's incredible! I'm not sure we've ever found a large portion of Lobster for such a price.
I can't think of ANYTHING negative about this resort & spa.
It was a pleasure to get to stay there!
