Room was dirty on check in. Candy bar under night stand Tops of night stand and dressers not cleaned Floors not vacuumed Bathroom pipes backed up and staff weren’t able to fix it We left for the day but we’re t even called to notify us that we needed to change rooms No communication

The pools and the slides were fun for the kids. However the bathrooms were never clean in the pool area. The food was just okay all around the resort. The service was slow and not personable. They changed the staff daily. The housekeeping in the room was probably rushed because every day something was wrong. The self parking is $25 and it’s completely out of the way. About a 10 minute walk from the rooms.

We arrived at 4.30 and our room still wasn’t ready yet. When we finally got our room we couldn’t get a hold of a bell man or receptionist to get our luggage. My husband had to walk a half mile down. It took forever to get our stuff. We have3 little kids and wanted to go to dinner. Then the restaurant was half empty but we still had to wait 30 min to get a table. The receptionist reassured us free breakfast, but my husband couldn’t find the voucher the next day so they simple said “sorry we have no record” after demanding to talk to the hotel manager we got $100 credit. The pool was over crowded. I have never seen anything that bad. They allow day guest to use the pool. They had a giant kiddo pool, with beach entrance and sand area to play which was cool. But every now and then everyone had to get out of the pool so they can brush the sand out for 15min. So we got to the pool and after 5 min I had to tell our kids to get out. On top of that i had to kill 2 spiders in our room. Will never go back there again!

Beautiful grounds, amenities. Clean and enjoyable over all . Better service when it is not overwhelmingly busy, which was during my stay.

Beautiful property, though my first room had a mildew smell to it.

Great Staff. Prices are too high on buffet. Sodas and alcoholic beverages prices are way to high. Beds are not comfortable and rooms need to be updated. $25 dollars for a bed cot is ridiculous ( should be free).

8 pools and water slides great resort. Love the different activities they have for kids. S’mores to a night swim showing of COCO.

Room was simple, but nice. Facility is very nice. Room walls are paper thin. Screaming kids in adjacent room ruined our stay. Spoke with staff and was not provided any relocation or assistance with noise.

Nice hotel, pretty grounds. The only complaint is that we had to wait in line for over 30 minutes to check in.

Beautiful resort with excellent family friendly amenities. Very well kept grounds with beautiful flowers everywhere. We loved the Splash pool and the resort staff were wonderful. S’mores on Fri/Sat nights was fun too. Didn’t make it to the spa this trip but I will if I’m back in the area because I’ve heard it’s amazing. We had a La Costa King suite and we were disappointed with how old and damp it was for the money we spent. The bed was terrible - full of springs and flat, lumpy pillows. The shower drain smelled like rotting hair, and the carpets felt damp despite the A/C. Room service was prompt but wasn’t very good. And our suite was behind a grass hill so our room felt like it was in the basement of the hotel (rm 901). Overall, we would try this place one more time if we can reserve a room in a different section of the resort. Just know before you go that they nickel and dime you for things like the roll away bed ($25/nt) and self-parking ($24/day). Valet was $34/day and they are very busy so be prepared to wait a long time for your car. Still, if you’re looking for a good family getaway, this is a good option.

Excellent. Beautiful historic hotel. Gorgeous panoramic golf view from our room.

Perfect choice for young kids. The toddler pool and slide were great. The VUE restaurant was very nice with good kid meal choices for only $6. The grounds were beautiful with flowers everywhere. The life guards were awesome! The pools were not busy during our stay so the lifeguards were able to spend time with our kids helping them learn how to swim. We look forward to coming back next year.

Enjoyed it very much..would do it again.. the facilities were very nice..it was very busy the weekend I went but the staff managed to pull it together..

Anthony at the front desk checked us in and made sure we had everything we needed for the birthday girl. He was able to move us into a room that better fit our group and the room was ready early. There were balloons and fresh fruit in the room and everything about the stay was fantastic.

The hotel room is nice but the jaccuzzi jets wasn’t working so disappointed.

I couldn't be more impressed with every aspect of my visit at this resort. The grounds are impeccable, staff incredibly helpful (Ian at the front desk even coordinated a reduced rate for me as I was unable to fly home during hurricane Irma), and the food is excellent. The biggest applause factor is of course the Chopra Center. I can't speak highly enough about everyone involved there and the programs, meditations, and treatments they offer. The Marma massage with Mike is life-changing. If you have any emotions or health challenges you need to release (which, who doesn't?), see him. You won't be disappointed.
