Spent 4 nights here with kids for a beach Legoland vacation. We had a 1 bed suite with 2 queens. The completely separate (reasonably spacious) living area has a really functional kitchen, with full size fridge, dishwasher and a hob. Having 2 separate spaces (and TVs) gave us the option to relax in the evenings, having packed the kids off to bed.
The property itself was extremely clean and modern. The staff seemed to be constantly cleaning carpets in the common areas, keeping the whole property looking fresh. The room itself had good quality furnishings, clean paintwork, and lots of functional storage - which is handy when a family of 4 explodes into it for 4 days.
Nice pool area was seldom crowded. Pool was clean and well kept. Immediately adjacent was the dining area where a reasonable (by 'complimentary' standards) breakfast is served each day, and complimentary basic evening meals (with wine/beer) on week nights. We took advantage of dinner on one evening - and it was fine.
The breakfast 'rush' is from 8-9 in the morning. Plenty of seating space, but the buffet area itself is pretty camped and crowded at this time. With not enough waffle irons, toasters or serving stations for rush hour. A little more space, and extendig the week-day morning breakfast to maybe 10.00am to facilitate the vactioning crowd might be in order.
A small fitness room has some cardio and freeweights. One of the 2 treadmills was out of order, but as I was the only user in the room in the early eenings at least, this wasn't a problem.
This property is a little bit of a drive (15 mins) to Carlsbad, Vista, etc. for restaurants and bars. No walkable local amenities (aside from the airport properties across the road).
Can't say enough about the staff - efficient, helpful, friendly. Chose this place if you're heading to Legoland, and want that 'break' from the kids in the evening that you can't get in a regular studio room. Solid. Recommended.
