The room was everything we expected...great ocean view from our king bed with roomy balcony. We took advantage of the relaxing pool setting and...

I stayed at this hotel for only one night, but had such a pleasant experience! The staff is so friendly, accommodating and warm. The room was very clean and pleasant and I had a great view of the ocean.

What a pleasant surprise. Never stayed here before and it is very nice, clean, and comfortable rooms. I imagine it's much busier in the summer. We enjoyed the tranquility of off season. FYI it's a 5 mile drive up the road to Carlsbad Village which is cute.

I live in the desert and it is easy to get away to Cape Rey Carlsbad for some escape! The staff is so friendly, the hotel has everything you could ever need for a relaxing stay, and the ocean is literally steps away! I loved the smell of the campfires across the highway!

I stayed here for a couple nights for a work trip. This is a new property and the location is wonderful. My room had a view of the beach across the street. Didn't have the chance to try the pool but it looked inviting. The property is clean and I like the fact that it's located away from all the...

This is a fantastic resort! The sunsets you could experience from the restaurant, your room or the gym were absolutely stunning! The gym is large and perfect for doing some cardio and weights or laying down a mat and doing your own workout. The spa is absolutely AMAZING! My massage therapist listened to my needs and absolutely delivered. I wish...

Just wanted to say the team at Cape Rey was solid, responsive and flexible! We had an amazing time, even though it was a little chilly! This place is fantastic! The sales staff, the catering, the restaurant, the valet, they all take very good care of you!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled along the sunny Pacific Coast in Northern San Diego and only 150 steps to the surf, Cape Rey is the adventurous choice for the California traveler who seeks something different and unique. With spectacular views of picturesque South Carlsbad beaches, the resort sits atop the crest of a series of gently rolling berms - a crest we like to call the Cape! At the Cape you are just minutes from LEGOLAND(R)California and the historic Del Mar Race Track, or a short coastal drive to SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo or Safari Park, famous regional wineries, and award-winning craft breweries. For the adventurous types we outfit you for local deep-sea fishing, sailboat cruises, horseback riding, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing lessons, and kayak explorations. Foodies enjoy dining on-property at Chandler's, where you'll find familiar favorites prepared with a twist. For connecting rejuvenation with mind, body and soul, we offer one of the top 5 Hotel Spas in the U.S. By Travel & Escape, the Ocean Crest Spa. And with an array of excursion locales and onsite amenities, there's always something to do, see or eat at the Cape. ... more   less
