Would definitely stay here again. Staff was professional and helpful. Only a few miles from beach. Convenient to interstate for traveling to SAN Diego or Oceanside. Short walk to pool/ hot tub facilities.

Great place to stay, timeshare options were great just not the right time for us. Beautiful rooms, kids loved it, Mom loved the washer dryers! Small ocean view as well as the fun slides at Lego, right outside our window. Thank you for having us!
