My son got married in Carlsbad. Most of our guests stayed here at a special rate. My room was beautiful and newly renovated. My Mother and Aunt's room was clean but not renovated. The toilet was way too low for a 92 and 87 year old. I certainly would ask for a renovated room. The location was great as you... More

My wife and I stayed in the timeshare portion on the Oak side during Christmas week, 2012. These units were remodeled last year except for the bathrooms which are scheduled for 2013.

This resort is part hotel, part Time-Share Condo rentals. The nice part is that you have the ability to rent a time share condo for what you would typically pay for a hotel, most of the year.
