My family and I had stayed at this resort about 4 years ago and thought it was nice. So this time, a buddy and I left our families at home and went to San Diego for a 4-day tennis trip. We stayed in a 1-bedroom suite at the Villas on the Green section of this resort, exchanging through Interval International.
Located about 35 miles from SAN airport, away from most of the congestion of San Diego which means you will need a car to get around. Grocery store (Vons) is about 5 miles away but there is an onsite store and Pizza Hut Express. The grounds are quite nice, with pool, golf and tennis courts. Since our wives and kids were not with us, we did not use the pool or participate in other resort activities.
One of our goals was to play tennis for a couple hours a day and then visit San Diego area. Since we played early morning and it was chilly this time of year, we did not have any competition for court time. The 2 tennis courts were lighted with hard surface.
* Free parking
* Free Wi-Fi, reasonable speed, easy to connect without dropping connection
* Tranquility of resort
* Nice grounds
* Lots of outdoor grills
* Decent size room and décor
* Distance to most San Diego attractions (no big deal for us)
* Appliances working but slightly dated
* Insulation between floors not great so can hear people upstairs stomping around
* Shower is very nice but lighting too dark
* Laundry machines not in room
* Dining chairs looked quite used and stained
* Sofa bed uncomfortable
Nice place for getaway, whether as adults or with children. Would stay here again.
