I loved the open receiving area for guests...no crowded spot to try and get in to register. Antonia greeted us with professionalism and patience as we checked in a little early. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, pools and hot tubs clean and the walking path is superb. Our stay was enhanced by the folks at the hotel that assisted us,...

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Legoland. We walked across the street and didn't have to pay for parking! The afternoon became a down pour, so we called the shuttle driver to pick us up! He was the nicest guy! The rooms are pretty basic, and a bit worn, but the price can't really be beat. We...

We really enjoyed our visit. Having a 2.5 year old with us, we especially loved the Activity Center. Sammy Martin and Ryan really helped us enjoy our trip to the fullest with really fun activities. They were helpful and enthusiastic every time we came for the new activities every day. This is a really family friendly resort and we always...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Grand Pacific Palisades. We were especially pleased with the front desk. A gentleman whose name I can't remember and Antonia helped us get the best available room with an ocean view, and Antonia checked us in early so we could go straight to our unit when it was clean and ready. Nicole was...

This resort is a great place to stay for families. Lego land is right across the street so you can walk there and save on parking. The resort has a great family pool with an area where the kids can play and squirt each other and its a safe, non slip surface. There are kids playgrounds on site as well...

We stayed for a week. The location was great - really close to lots of interesting things to do, even if you don't have kids at Lego land. Our unit was beautiful, a two bedroom back by the kids pool. We would have preferred staying closer to the all-adult pool, but the resort wasn't very crowded so it worked out...

Very comfortable accommodations in a beautiful area of San Diego. When confused about if we received complimentary water bottles or not, Tony, the Maintenance Managers brought us 5 free bottles! This is just an example of the exceptional service we had all week.

We stayed for three days and found it very clean, convenient and friendly - the staff was inobtrusive but helpful, the two bedroom suite was large with a great full kitchen, and parking was easy and free).
