“great for family”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

we only stayed two nights in a 2-bedroom unit. The place was clean and even in that back and we still had a ocean view from our balcony. Going to the beach was just across the street and the family pool was a lot of fun for the kids. They had a great deal of daily activities at the resort which was fun, would be a fun place to spend a week at with all activities there. They had a bunch of great free rentals: boogie board, wagons, umbrellas, and even movies!! The staff was super friend 90% of the time. My husband said he had an experience with one of the girl at front counter when he was asking about the activities desk and their closing time. And there were a few things some staff did not know or there was no one around at some of the desk at times. But overall, i would consider maybe coming back.

Room Tip: my 2-bedroom unit was towards the back on the first floor, and it still had a ocean view was steps...

We stayed here at the end of April beginning of May for a week. We did it as an exchange through RCI and I would have to say for the amount of points that we needed for a one bedroom unit we were disappointed in the room. The rooms can use some updating, and a good cleaning in some area's like the fan's. Location was excellent, and easy to get to.

We shared the 2 bedroom condo...it was glorious!!! They are a stickler for a 4 pm check-in...they did however give a pool key for our wait. The separate adult pool was nice. We have found a new place to visit for our yearly get away.

We read all the great reviews and chose this hotel over nearby Marbrisa and Grand Palisades due to the fact that Seapointe was closest to the ocean, within easy walking distance. Our room was large and faced the ocean. The concierge and staff were very friendly and helpful. However, there were many ants in the kitchen. Our hot water heater also malfunctioned despite several attempts to fix it while we were there. There is no in-house restaurant or bar, but a nice kitchenette in our room.
Due to our hot water situation, we wound up being relocated to Grand Palisades, which is a lot more upscale and has a fabulous on-site restaurant.
In conclusion, if you want a place within walking distance to the beach and want to cook in your room or drive somewhere for every meal, Seapointe will probably work out well for you. If you are hoping for a more upscale place with room service and more amenities and don't mind driving a few miles to the beach, try one of the other nearby hotels.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with an ocean view. I recommend the upper floors, as some of the ground look patio...

Wow, I usually don't take the time to review hotels but this place really exceeded my expectations. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and our room was super spacious and clean. The resort had a very fun "family vacation" vibe. Unfortunately we only stayed one night and did not get to enjoy the many amenities the resort offers. Seemed like a great place for family fun! The kitchen was fully stocked with literally everything you might possibly need! Such as, tea kettle, pots & pans, water pitcher, glasses as well as champagne glasses AND mugs, blender, toaster, dishes, utensils, etc, more stuff than many people have at home! They thought of everything. Also, free popcorn, hot chocolate, and tea!

Room Tip: We had a two bedroom two bathroom which would be comfy for a family of 5 (the second bedroom has a t...

We were in the area for a reunion and booked this for one night. We were very surprised at how spacious the room was and enjoyed the ocean view and breeze. The room has everything you could need for a longer stay - a full-sized fridge, pots and pans, etc. There are a number of activities available at the resort and since we were only there for one night, we did not have the time to take part in any of them. It seems like the resort would be a wonderful place for families, particularly with younger children as there is a playground, pools, a ping pong table, etc. Our room had a lot of decorative touches we have only seen in more expensive hotels (for example, towels folded in designs) and the room was spotless. Staff was very friendly. The only negatives were the very late check-in (4 p.m.) and unusually early check-out (10 a.m.) and the lack of any stores in walking distance.

My wife and enjoyed our 31 anniversary at seapointe resort. The staff was amazing,friendly, and extreamly helpful,we didn`t want to leave. We have booked our next trip to Carlsbad and we will be staying at Seapointe.The front desk staff (all of them) were fantastic. The room, clean,neat, all the accommodations of a 5star resort...with a wonderful veiw of the coast! We enjoyed a glass of wine and a magnificent sunset on the balcony of our hotel room. Seapointe gets a big "Thumbs Up" from us!

Room Tip: Most of rooms have a nice ocean view...best rooms are larger corner units
