We had our family reunion here last week. Our rooms were excellent- high vaulted ceilings, very clean and spacious and we had an amazing view of the ocean! We loved being able to check out towels, boogie boards, sand toys, wagons and chairs from the activities department- that came in handy when traveling from another state!! The staff is friendly and helpful. Andrea at the front desk was very helpful with a misunderstanding at check out over the bill. We did not realize that we were not charged until checkout and ended up not getting the lower quoted price when we booked the rooms; that it was just to reserve the rooms. We did appreciate her help and time.
For the price you pay a night- we wish the check in/check out time was more flexible. For a family resort it is not very convenient to be checked out by 10. For the price we wish they offered a complimentary breakfast of some sorts.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and loved being at a resort that was family friendly! We actually attempted to extend our stay- but it was completed booked!

We stay here every year. Love the views. We really wish it was closer to the village as we love to walk around the shops. It would be great if they had a shuttle to drop off and pickup those of us who would like to go to the village and not hassle with the parking.

We stayed here during July 4th weekend. Rooms and bathrooms are good size and our balcony was facing the sea so it was really nice. You have lot of choices of activities-Tennis, Table Tennis, Basket ball, well equipped gym .etc. Resort provides everything from Beach ball to boogie boards,wagons for hassle free time at the beach which is right across the street.
You can check out board games to play in your room too. Only thing that sauna was not working, which was okay as it was summer but if I am going there in winter I would want that as we paid around 380 per night.

Only complain I had was we were two families together and requested two rooms next to each other well in advance but were given rooms in separate level. Also the curtains

Overall satisfied with our stay.All the staff members were very friendly and courteous. May come back if get the better price deal.

Room Tip: Higher floor. Bathrooms are more spacious.

A nice , very pretty getaway place to unwind or just chill out with the family. It definitely says "family" rather than "romantic" if you need to know that. Very well appointed-Ask to see the different room layouts- they're so many - I didn't know that we could've had one where the sofa faced the patio. Ok, so... I didn't give it a 5th star because of these things -.... even though it may not be a big deal to most- ....1-No comp breakfast ..except coffee/tea/cocoa...Nowhere to eat on site. (except snacky stuff in machines). Big problem was the checkin/out hours! Check-in wasn't until 4PM! and Checkout was..10AM- that was too early for us with kids, etc....after that they start charging 25.00 every 30mins. At the 'Family BBQ /Pool event' ..they only had 2 people cooking the food at the grill for too many guest.. and the wait to get our food was longer than we actually wanted to stay-
They also ran out of bag chips that come with the burgers !..but charged the same. The lemonade /or ice tea was VERY diluted. ....now that you know this - you can be informed- Have fun.. There's plenty nearby quality grocery stores etc.. and the kitchen is very well appointed

Room Tip: Have the front desk show you the different floor plans- there's a lot to choose from.

Seapointe is such a beautiful resort. The staff is always so incredibly friendly and the locations is absolutely perfect. I loved that there was an adult pool, a perfect place to watch the sunset. I could not have asked for a better couple of days off!

I selected this property because of the location to the beach. I wasn't aware of June Gloom, but like clock work at 10 AM every morning the sun came out. We were the only ones at the adult pool....loved having an adult pool. I was impressed by the cleanliness of the resort and the excellent service we received during a one week stay...fresh towels twice and a mini cleaning mid week. I usually don't go to welcome events, but attended the welcome breakfast and was very surprised by the staff and the food...both top notch. The resort grounds were immaculate and noticed the gas grills in several locations, lots of chairs around the grounds to sit and read. Our two bedroom condo was very nice. One night at 9 PM the refrigerator began making a horrible noise...we called maintenance and within 20 minutes we had a new refrigerator. The appliances are not top of the line, but certainly adequate...and we cooked dinner three times. The neighborhood is quiet and we didn't notice any loud traffic. Didn't notice the train at all during the night and took the Coaster to San Diego for $5.50 round trip for seniors. I am a Wyndham owner so this was a RCI exchange....can only do it every 4 years...so I'll try again in 2018.

Room Tip: Rooms facing west have great light. We were on the ground floor in an end unit with a patio. The b...

We stayed in a two bedroom condo and were assigned a condo facing the train tracks. I didn't know what to expect, and had low expectations, since we had been hoping to stay at the newly built Marbrisa but it was booked. But, we were very pleasantly surprised. The condo itself was nicely sized and very well appointed. The decor was typical (not my favorite) but in very good condition. The kids loved having their own beds! A full kitchen (3/4 fridge) with everything we needed, including a coffeepot. There is a grocery store only a couple miles and an easy drive away, and we stocked up (tip- use a luggage cart - there are plenty - to get your groceries up to your room, it can be a long walk from the parking garage if you are carrying a lot of bags!). But, the area has many restaurants around also, and downtown Carlsbad is also not far.

I don't usually comment on staff, as I don't encounter them much, but the staff was very friendly and helpful. I dont want to name names, because I don't want to get them in trouble, but, the concierge was kind enough to direct us to coupons that were more helpful than the rate offered for the San Diego zoo, and one of the desk people gave me laundry detergent, rather than charge extra. These little things made us feel like they really wanted to make us enjoy our stay, as opposed to nickel and diming. Free cookies and coffee in the lobby was also nice.

The kids (age 6 and 8) really loved the activities. There was a "treasure hunt" and a lego word search for which they got a trinket for finishing. They were ecstatic. There was also basketball, tennis, pool, foosball, and ping pong. There are all sorts of things to borrow to take to the beach - boogie boards, sand pails, etc. We didn't realize until too late that they also have wagons to borrow to cart everything to the beach. It is a bit far if you are carrying things (or are 6 years old) but not impossible. It would have been absolutely fine with a wagon. I loved being able to get up and go for a run along the beach in the mornings.

Last thing I will comment is that the vicinity to the train tracks is unfortunate, but not a deal breaker. We would stay here again. I was shocked that my kids(closest to the tracks) were able to sleep through it. As for me, I came prepared with ear plugs, but I am used to that anyway.
