We stayed here over Labor Day weekend 2016. I thought the rate was very reasonable especially for a holiday. It was a nice hotel with friendly, helpful staff. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I chose this hotel for the proximity to Legoland and the brewery. It was about a 5 minute walk to Legoland, and the brewery is in... More

I went there for a and I would rate the resort a 4 if they had a restaurant and bar in the pool area and in the reception. For the the price the fact that we had to order from the brewery and they don't have hard alcohol was a huge disappointment. And I over heard a staffer say the... More

This is a beautiful and new hotel! The grounds are manicured with a variety of tropical plants and the weather was in the 70's when we went. With a slight breeze and all the plants, it felt just like being in Hawaii. *sigh* Highly recommend! The only reason this gets a 4 out of 5 is because the entrance is... More

We visited Grand Pacific Palisades for a week in September with our grown children. We had a two room condo. Very spacious, full service. The kitchen/ dinning/ living room - open floor concept - had plenty of room for all of us. The Kitchen facilities were good. We did bring our own spices and other favorite cooking items. The grounds... More

The Good: -The room was nice and the pool had a great view. Being so close to Karl Strauss was convenient for us (location of rehearsal dinner). -Tony (I believe he worked in maintenance?) deserves a special shout out as he was INCREDIBLE with all of the guests. I saw his smiling face numerous times throughout the weekend, offering people... More

From the online reviews I thought I was making a budget oriented decision for my stay in the San Diego / Carlsbad area. I guess to some extent I was, but this hotel was much above expectations and great for my family vacation.

My husband and I visited in July and decided to purchase their timeshare during our visit. We are back as we love the resort. The staff is very friendly. I called for supplies and a young boy by the name of Togan Svel brought me the items I needed. I wanted small towels and he took back the large ones... More

We stayed at this hotel twice, first when it first opened, and then again a few years ago. The best thing you can do for your family. It is a close as the Legoland parking lot. You can go out of the park and go hang out at your hotel and refresh yourself and then go back. If you have... More
