We traded a timeshare in FL to stay here. When we first arrived and checked in we were directed to another counter where they would give us our "parking pass". Really its just to try and pressure you into making an appt to view the property. They dont take no for answer very easily unless you get crabby with them. They also called me the next morning and acted like they didnt know I already said no and told me no one had "put it into the computer". Also a couple times I called the front desk they asked me about going to a presentation. Aside from that it is a beautiful property with new, comfortable units. Relaxing in the beautiful weather at the pools was great. We also took advantage of the grills. Im surprised more people arent talking about the showers! They have the multiple head showers with the little "seat" in the shower. I LOVE those. It is a little far from San Diego but not too bad. This time of year the weather was actually nicer in Escondido than in San Diego. We also went to Carlsbad and OCeanside. You can skip Old Town, its like a state fair. I would stay here again even if the staff is very pushy.
