This was my first time staying at La Costa resort since Omni took it over and it hasn't really changed but that is a good thing. It was exactly as I remembered except I guess there has been a couple changes since two years ago which was my last stay. They updated and modernized the Bistro 65 restaurant….and added a new adult only pool called the Edge pool…It is a nice alternative to the kids pool area and the spa pool as well as all the other pools on the property. I love the trees, flowers and the comfortable atmosphere which gives off a healthy and happy vibe. The property has been in Carlsbad for a very long time but they have made a lot of updates to the restaurant and pools and the marketplace which is a great store attached to the main lobby …the marketplace is a hub of activity, iPads set up for use for free….home made ice cream can be purchased here and there are also lots of food and snack items…it is also a really fun resort shop. there is also a host of other clothing stores available right in the main entrance, including Pinkaliscous a Lilly Pulitzer shop. The rooms are very big and the bathrooms and amenities are very generous. Beds are comfortable and television in room is a large flat screen tv. There is also a vanity area in a separate nook, at least there was in my room which was in the Plaza area….very close to the lobby but far enough away to keep it peaceful and quiet.
The food at the Edge pool was excellent but honestly I did not like the iced tea….I do love the iced tea at the spa and hopefully someone at the resort will read my review and do something about the iced tea in the lobby bar and the pool….that is my only complaint. I had yummy fish tacos at the edge pool and the servers were very nice and efficient even though the place was packed. I went to the spa the second day and had my favorite lunch there which is a beautifully served presentation…Tuna salad, wrapped in a cucumber with a side salad and crackers. The same nice people were working at the spa cafe that have been there for the last many years…
i spent the day at the spa and had a wonderful facial by Pat who has been there for as many years as the resort spa….she did an excellent facial for me and I remembered her from a previous visit. The spa is just right in everyday….size, amenities, atmosphere, snacks….its a relaxing oasis and I hope to make this a regular habit…I love the spa at La COsta….great products and great service

Room Tip: there are many buildings at the resort, i am sure all the rooms will be excellent…depends on what activities you want to be close to

Lovely grounds, good beds & bathrooms. Poor signage & directions. Villa poorly equipped & maintained. Housekeeping very lax in preparing rooms. Upon many different requests, the help was very friendly & tried to solve the problems. Not what to expect in a 5 star resort. Not the La Costa of old. Not worth the price!

The pool experience for the kids was great. 3 water slides and splash zone. The family pool in the afternoon gets filed with sand on the bottom which is a bit awkward when walking. Evening smores and scavenger hunt are a blast.

It does not get any better than a villa room at La Costa. Beautiful decor with very comfortable beds. A shower that could fit 5 people easily but wonderfully romantic for 2. The food is fantastic as well as everything else. Could not find enough glowing words for this place! Looking forward to coming again in the future.
