We just got back from this hotel on Sunday and are already planning our next trip back!
This was our first time taking our kids (2 & 3 year old girls) to California and we chose Legoland and this resort as it was recommended for the younger kids. (And as starwood members, we prefer their resorts)
CHECK IN/COMMUNAL AREAS
The first impression of the hotel was great. Check in was fast and efficient (Thanks Ben!) and although we were told the hotel was full, we never felt it.
Our room (corner one bed suite) was large and nicely furnished with lots of storage space and 2 LCD tv's. 2 Balconies with seating were a nice touch too.
The pool is a nice shape and most of the time we had it to ourselves. The size meant that although we had two little ones they were never splashing on the adults. It was a bit on the cool side but on a hot day it was very refreshing.
The Twenty/20 restaurant was great. Is it more expensive than leaving the hotel? Of course. But unlike most hotels, the food was so good we never felt that it wasnt worth that little bit extra in cost. Breakfasts were exceptional and they put as at the same table every morning which was a nice touch. TIP- The kids portions are very big (suited to an older child), so if your kids are young they can easily share.
We also loved having a night cap by the outdoor fireplace, and all the servers were so attentive and entertaining to our girls that I think they enjoyed it more than we did.
Also- if there are fireworks at Legoland there is no place better to watch them than from this patio
PRIVATE LEGO LAND ENTRANCE
Easily located through the parking lot and down a path. It is really not a long walk when you consider all the miles you trek in a theme park. We also had a stroller so there was no worry with the kids. The entrance means there are no lines to get in... perfect!
We always valeted the vehicle and never had to wait more than 2 minutes to have it brought up. When we went into Carlsbad village for dinners the complimentary shuttle was fast and efficient. A perfect option
We cannot say enough good things about our stay in this resort. Everyone from the other families to everyone working here was very nice and the entire trip was well enjoyed from my inlaws in their 60's all the way down to my 2 year old who when I asked where she wanted to go today told me (cali)"Fornia" .... poor girl had to settle for the park.
