For families the pool and splash pad were great for our four and six year old after a full day at legoland. They didn’t want to leave.

Rooms where clean. Sliding door lock didn’t work. Light in one of the bathroom would go on and off by itself. Even in the middle of the night and it was so creepy to sleep. Even i could hear downstairs room also bathroom fan go on and off at night like every 20 min or so.

GOOD, bad, & UGLY: first the good is excellent location, it is walkable distance from legoland, and helpful staff; bad is the pool shown in pictures is adult only (no kids allowed) and kid pool has no view and is small; UGLY is the condition. The hotel is being renovated, no lobby or working elevators. Had to carry luggage up stairs. Workers also started at 7:30 in morning. I will avoid until renovation is completed!!!

The property is nice and the location is excellent. They are under construction for renovations and the daily work was loud. We were not notified of the construction and it was a bit of an inconvenience for the price of the hotel. Our sink was backed up and had a terrible order. We complained twice and they took care of it the second time.

Cleaniness in the condo suite but disrupted with the noise from upstair suite.

There aren't many time share properties in Southern California (compared to, say, Orlando) and this one has prime position on top of a hill overlooking the coast and right next to Legoland.. We like the proximity to so many activities around San Diego and we love the resort, which our daughters have nicknamed "Second Home." There is a kids pool area with mini water park and an adults pools and spa for those who want peace and quiet. The units are large and well-equipped and the staff are exceptionally helpful.

I’ve stayed here before and it’s location is great. There was no notice of construction. The hot tub at the kids pool was under construction and the only other hot tub was a long walk. No one gave any explanation of facilities and what to do for kids. Check out time at 10 when I didn’t arrive until almost 8 was ridiculous. Mischa was very helpful though he brought us pool towels in stead of making us walk all the way to the front desk then to the other side for the hot tub.

This property is under construction. The websites didn't mention this.

super close to legoland. shuttle available. clean room.

Family friendly, beautiful sunset view and so conveniently located next to LEGOLAND!

This place is great. We had a nice stay for three nights. My only complaint is that the pool with the Gorgeous view, fire pit and seats is for age 17+. For a hotel across the street from legoland all pools should be open to everyone.

Had a glitch while check-in but otherwise a great place. Booked 2 rooms but got keys for only one room. Had to go down to reception again but the key set did not work despite changing them again. Had to wait for the tech to come and help us get in the room.
