My wife, son, daughter-in-law and grandkids visited this resort las week. Although we had a great time; I was not greatly impressed with the resort in terms of overall cleanliness, and general accommodations.
It is important to understand that this is on an island - you can't just walk down the street to a McDonald's or other restaurant - so, unless you have transportation, you can feel a little isolated. There are only two restaurants and a pizza place on the island. One restaurant was pretty "high rent". Cabs are available, but would recommend your own or a rental car to take advantage of the other sights in San Diego. If you have kids, don't miss Lego Land! Sea World was close by and also fun - by the way, you could go by water taxi from the resort. A trip to "Old Town" is also worth it for some good, inexpensive, mexican food. We also enjoyed, Sea Port Village, in the marina area in downtown San Diego - shops, restaurants, etc. For Seal watching, go to La Jolla just up the road.
We regard to the resort, on the plus side, the swimming pools were great. They had several ponds and water features that were enjoyable (kids got a chance to feed the ducks and the fish). there were some nice walking/jogging areas available. You could rent bikes and seqways to see the area (I did feel these were a little expensive, however) The restaurant and bars were very nice; though, again, I thought the food was a little expensive - but may be in line with California standards.
On the minus side, we noticed very little effort to clean the pool area - that bothered us a lot. Towels were "piled up" in one area for several days, debris, here and there - with no attempt to keep the property up as I would have expected. If you are used to a nice resort in the Caribbean, you may be a little disappointed. They need to update the property and keep it cleaner.
The staff was friendly and responsive to requests.
