My husband and I stayed at the brand new Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront resort and spa and WOW! I was a little hesitant as it had only been opened for 2 days and some of the landscaping had not yet been planted but we were pleasantly surprised! The rooms are simply gorgeous, linens on the beds--spectacular. Great TV, bathroom, etc...And the STAFF! They outdid themselves and all looked like they came out of central casting! Friendly, professional, proud of their hotel...just fantastic. The restaurant was also a big surprise. We had planned to go out both nights but stayed in the second and night and we were so thrilled with the food and service.
The beach is right across the road but at the moment the gate isn't open for direct accessabiltiy but it looks like it's close. Ponto Beach is right down the road and the cute downtown Carlsbad is just 3-4 miles away. This is a great spot and I would reccomend for anyone.
Oops forgot to mention that the business center is GREAT and free access to the computers.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled along the sunny Pacific Coast in Northern San Diego and only 150 steps to the surf, Cape Rey is the adventurous choice for the California traveler who seeks something different and unique. With spectacular views of picturesque South Carlsbad beaches, the resort sits atop the crest of a series of gently rolling berms - a crest we like to call the Cape! At the Cape you are just minutes from LEGOLAND(R)California and the historic Del Mar Race Track, or a short coastal drive to SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo or Safari Park, famous regional wineries, and award-winning craft breweries. For the adventurous types we outfit you for local deep-sea fishing, sailboat cruises, horseback riding, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing lessons, and kayak explorations. Foodies enjoy dining on-property at Chandler's, where you'll find familiar favorites prepared with a twist. For connecting rejuvenation with mind, body and soul, we offer one of the top 5 Hotel Spas in the U.S. By Travel & Escape, the Ocean Crest Spa. And with an array of excursion locales and onsite amenities, there's always something to do, see or eat at the Cape. ... more less
