I absolutely love this hotel, it's Spanish architecture, and lovely gardens! Everyone was so nice to us. The suite had so much room, we could've had a large party! I really liked having a back door to our own private lawn with chairs and small table but someone forgot to pick up after their large dog so we stayed inside....

I had a wonderful experience here with Sol and Andy! The employees went above and beyond to provide excellent service, and I left with a great first impression. The hotel is beautiful and the lands are lush. There's a bar in the back with an outdoor firepit and cozy seating area. Funnily enough, I didn't plan to go to this...

Juliette, at the desk, was extremely helpful in helping us determine what services to choose. She patiently answered all of our questions, showed us around and explained how their facility worked.

We were a little unsure about this hotel, but we had a very nice stay here. Granted, we didn't spend much time at the resort - during the day we did touristy things in and around SD or La Jolla. Speaking of, the resort actually is in a great location - convenient for going to the city and also going...

I was there for a conference. This hotel is really just for weddings and conferences. They just care about making sure that the wedding or conference organizer is happy with them, but they do not care at all about the guests individually. But they pretend that they do.
