PROS: very clean, very friendly staff and phenomenal location. Easy to get to Disneyland & San Diego Zoo. All new kitchen appliances and great large screen TV's with good channel options. Beds are very comfortable, free laundry, nice pools and great beach access. Paper products are soft not sandpaper like many chains. Maid service is still to be evaluated CONS:... More

Satisfied with the accommodations and location. Phase 2 pool was my fav because it had less kids, perfect for couples who want to enjoy some quiet time together. Phase 1 pool is bigger and has 2 Jacuzzis. Both pools get a good amount of sun. Our room was clean and had everything we needed, even the extra pillows I requested... More

What a wonderful place for a hotel...look out your window onto the beach and Pacific Ocean! There is a highway and a railroad track in between so you can't just run out the door onto the beach but an entrance is not far away. The hotel is somewhat dated and although they are trying to make upgrades I question the... More

We stayed here in February (3 adults and a newborn) and our stay was great. The staff was very accommodating, rooms were large, and one of the pools was even heated. We stayed in an ocean view room which had a very large balcony with a barbecue. The kitchen area was fully equipped and made it very easy for us... More

Even called three weeks ago to reiterate that I wanted ocean view and they said no problem. When I got there they played dumb. This is my view. The brochure makes it look great but it's dated. On a positive note, there were no insects, blood or pubic hair. Stay elsewhere.

This is my home resort and I have always had a good experience here. The pools are nice. Last time there they erected an inflatable screen at night and we watched the movie "Saving Mr Banks." The best dinnertime restaurant within walking distance is "Augostino's Italian." The Coach House is nearby for live music and dinner. I have even gone... More

We exchanged our timeshare for a week at this timeshare property. The unit was spacious and they had underground parking. We had an ocean view, but it was not possible to get to the beach because of busy highway, railroad tracks and fence. There was an overhead walking bridge, but the city tore it down before providing an alternative. We... More

We made a trip to this resort on October 2015. It was our 3rd time at this place, and despite being Diamond resorts owners, we did not get a renovated room at that time. However, we got a very nice unit that was in need of improvement but still worked. We decided to give them another opportunity and just went... More

I came here with my husband and two kids. We loved that the resort had a heated pool and was across from the beach. We got the 1 bedroom with kitchen. It was great having coffee watching the surfers early in the morning. There are plenty of places to go and eat within 5 minutes from the resort. If you... More
