The service that you receive from Omni La Costa begins before your stay and continues even after your departure. They really do value your patronage and ensure that every part of your stay supersedes any expectations that you may have. The Spa & Villa were AMAZING. We were so relaxed the entire stay. We will definitely be going back.

This is a beautiful property with great amenities. We will definitely be back. Front desk staff (Olivia), I think, the bartender Gem (thanks for the delicious egg hamburger recommendation), and the Customer Relations Manager (his name starts with a J) were wonderful.

My wife and I only stayed here one night and we wished we could have stayed longer. My company had their Christmas party here on that night so that was our only time to check out the resort grounds. It's big, beautiful and well maintained. We weren't able to use the pools or golf course but maybe we'll be able...

The facility is very well maintained and elegant. It is well run and the rooms, although, not state of the art in modern and updated décor, it has an old world charm with its Spanish/Old Mission style. It was a real treat to have three tennis clinics available daily!!

Although I came for a conference, we found this to be an excellent place to bring the entire family to enjoy the area. The Kidtopia program kept the four-year-old busy while I attended sessions, while the hammocks, giant chess set, and especially the arcade kept the older ones happy until evening when we could go swimming. The heated pools made...

My only negative comment is that for a room in a resort of this caliber, it fell short of my expectations because of a musty smell...very disappointing, that's why I gave it the "Poor" rating. The bathroom, furnishings, and amenities in the room were great, it was just the odor. The rest of the resort was top quality and met...

I came for five nights for a convention. My room (558) was four minutes walk from the main lobby area, but with California weather this wasn't a problem. The bell staff were incredibly welcoming, and took me down to my room in a golf cart. When I needed to go to the bank (a mile away), a taxi guy took...

Wow. I can say that, hands down, this was the most beautiful hotel I've ever stayed in. Everything was clean, super high-quality, and just plain beautiful and luxurious. My only complaint is that one of the ladies at the front desk was unfriendly on the phone when I called about my check-in call. She got quite defensive about the check-in...

My family and I have stayed at this resort many times. With the end of each stay, we start to plan our return. The location is great -- you feel far away from the rat race, but it is close to nice restaurants and other modern conveniences. Nice pools and great rooms. And close enough to major attractions to allow...

We stayed at the Omni La Costa resort in Carlsbad for a conference. We had a quiet, peaceful, secluded room that was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the deep tub was a real bonus. The pool area was inviting and immaculate, and we felt like we had the place to ourselves most of the time! The...
