Stayed for 1 week while visiting San Diego and all the major attractions. Didn't really check out the resort amenities other than the pool opposite our villa and the restaurant.
Our villa was in Pelican Hill unit 2221 within Villas on the Green. Our villa was on the street/parking lot level which was great for unloading car etc. There was a level below and above us. We were fortunate that the whole resort was very quiet during our stay and never had anyone staying above us until our last night.
The villa was very clean, well equipped and looked like it may have been recently upgraded as the carpet seemed almost new and so did some of the furnishings. My only complaint would be the bathroom, I personally hate tiled showers and glass doors, they are always moldy and grubby looking. Also there was no handles on any of the kitchen or bathroom cupboards, it was so annoying having to grab the edge of the panel every time.
It had a great sized deck with plenty of seating, we were on the corner and nicely shaded by a tree. The shutters in the room do a great job of keeping the place cool and we rarely used the air conditioning. The doors were solid so we didn't hear any noise from the fridge during the night, which has been a pain in other places we've stayed.
We were straight across from the pool which was very handy for just running over in our swimsuits. Overall the villa was very spacious and we loved every minute of it, the bed was comfy and we slept great.
It was very easy to get to places from the resort, although it did take 30 min to 45 mins drive to zoo, sea world, downtown etc. Less than 20 mins took us to the beach or places like Walmart for stocking up on essentials.
