My husband, 2 children and I returned to La Costa this year for the second summer in a row. We enjoyed a weekend at the resort last year, and had a such a relaxing experience that we decided to extend our stay to 5 nights this time. We were not disappointed! The room was clean and lovely, with a remodeled bathroom , excellent amenities, and a view of a private courtyard with a jacuzzi. It was conveniently located next to both the pool and the restaurants, so we got lucky there. We booked early when they were having a special and we received 30% off on our room rate and breakfast for our entire family for $25. The breakfast was a wonderful way to begin the day, as they offer a very nice buffet each morning and you can dine outdoors overlooking the golf course. I think the $25 breakfast plan is something you can ask for if it is not included in your hotel package, and they will gladly add it.
If you have children, the pool is definitely the highlight of your La Costa experience. The younger children adore the shallow pool with the sandy "beach", as well as the splash zone activities and smaller waterslides. The older kids (and grownups) LOVE the two larger waterslides. The food poolside is great, though a bit spendy, but it's a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere for the whole family.
We enjoy playing tennis, and the resorts has a beautiful tennis facility, and it didn't seem to be crowded at all when we were there. The restaurants on site are good, but there are plenty of other options nearby as well, such as a casual pizza place in the mall across the street and a nicer Mexican restaurant. We enjoyed dinner at a nearby Benihana one evening, as well.
The proximity to Legoland is a big bonus, and the drive into San Diego for Sea World and other attractions is only about 45 minutes. We are La Costa fans, and we look forward to returning each year!
