We had two 2-bedroom units at Capri by the Sea over Christmas/New Year’s for family who was visitng for the holidays, and we absolutely loved it (one was a timeshare exchange, and one was rental). It was so peaceful, relaxing and comfortable.
It has a fantastic location in north Pacific Beach – gorgeous panoramic views from every room, loved watching and hearing the rolling, crashing waves, just steps down to a beautiful beach, walking distance to lots of restaurants, bars, shops, and right on the bike path for bike riding, roller-blading, walking, etc.
UNITS: the units were spacious, clean, with great fully-stocked kitchens and lots of storage. Each unit is individually owned, so they’re all different styles. My brother and nieces were on the 3rd floor, and it was a beachy-type themed room; my aunts and grandma were in a beautiful corner unit on the 10th floor w/ stunning views and more upscale furnishings, but both were wonderful.
AMENITIES: There’s a nice heated pool and jacuzzi located behind the hotel (no view, but very private), which the kids loved (a bit of a walk when it’s chilly). There’s also a rooftop deck w/ killer views which we used for grilling, but it could use some furniture/furnishings. As far as timeshares go, there weren’t really any activities, but it didn’t matter since there’s so much to do in San Diego and at the beach.
STAFF: Only real negative is that the staff was not very friendly and when one of our units had heating problems, it took too long to get it fixed. Also, security was really tight, which I suppose is a good thing – but it was a bit of a hassle w/ several kids, bcse you needed a room key to get in the elevator, and up to any floor (and room key for 3rd floor wouldn’t get you to 10th floor, etc). But, just a minor inconvenience.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay; absolutely recommend Capri by the Sea and would love to come back any time. I could move in and live there!
