“lovely resort, great for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We stayed in this hotel for two nights this July with another family of relatives, it was really a great stay. the resort is very convenient and safe for the kids, and the the pool side is attractive.
the location is good especially the proximity of the beach among other activities like the Sea world where we enjoyed watching its fire works one night sitting next to the pool..
the rooms are spacious and clean. the staff is good and helpful.
a private Jacuzzi was located in a patio next to our room, just an amazing late relaxation before heading to the room.
Nice Job for the good care of the place.
Recommended.

We checked out of hilton checkers in LA to move to a more relaxed place and found hilton in san diego - and it perfectly fit our requirements, very relaxed resort- has a longg beachfront with nice views and plenty of options for water sports. the food is also amazing. try to get a room facing the beachfront - no brainer - but the rooms in other towers are not that great. Just one downer, there is a lot of noise from other rooms (kids running around etc), so your sleep might be disturbed if you like to wake up late in the morning.

Treated very well as Diamond, thanks for the upgrade! Your staff is the best, made my whole family just have a great time in our 4 nights there, the location is good but your staff is great! We had a blast attending the morning activities for families/kids as well as the large pool and even the ping pong tables.

Many thanks for being a loyal Hilton guest and for taking the time to share such great feedback with us. It's a pleasure to share our waterfront oasis with you and your family, and I'm glad to hear that you were able to enjoy so many of the activities we offer during the days. Hopefully you were able to participate in our s'mores and dive-in movie nights, too! We look forward to sharing these and many other offerings with you, and we hope that you'll reach out the next time you visit the area.

We stayed last weekend for a little "date weekend" away from the kids and we loved it. The pool area and access to the beach were one of the best parts of the stay. The rooms are a little dated, but the staff was so accommodating and helpful, it didn't really matter. We especially liked the Olives bar and the bar menu. You can sit outside in these retro style 70's chairs and sip your martini by the firepit. We were also surprised by the food in the restaurant. The breakfast buffet was a little pricey, but the quality of the food at dinner on Saturday night was some of the best we have had. I don't expect good food at a hotel restaurant, but this was a nice surprise. We are looking forward to going back soon...

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the water and get the firewood for your own private firepit on the patio

Thanks for being our guest and for taking the time to share your visit with us. Al fresco dining at the Olive Lounge is truly a one of a kind experience that can't be beat. What's not to love about waterfront views and fire pit martinis on a beautiful San Diego evening? With our revolving menus, we hope that you'll return time and time again to savor the flavors and views of this special oasis!

We spent the Independence Day holiday at this resort with our family and loved every minute! They really had lots of fun activities all weekend – our kids really enjoyed the Junior Olympics on Friday. We went to movie night, smores night, fireworks, played volleyball on the beach, rode bicycles, and joined in many other fun things they had going on. The food was great in the main restaurant and at the pool. We had their buffet on 4th of July which was a little pricey for burgers and dogs, but the selection was good and it everything was tasty. Service throughout was consistently friendly and professional. The location was great for trips south to downtown, north to LaJolla, and they had a free shuttle to Old Town and SeaWorld. We live fairly close, so I'm sure we'll be back. Thanks Hilton for a great family getaway!

Room Tip: Some ground floor rooms have firepits which are great, but if youre in the room above them you cant...

The lobby, pool, and bar were very nice. The small adjacent beach was also very nice. However, the room looked like it had been the scene of the movie Bachelor Party. The screen door to the balcony was broken, the handle to the sliding door was broken off and you couldn't secure the door, a reading lamp attached to the headboard was broken and hanging from the wires, and the phone was disconnected and not working
