Great location with ocean view. If you have small children Legoland is literally right behind the resort. There were other museums that looked very interesting but we did not have time this trip to get to them. The two that I will check out next time are One the Museum of Making Music and the GIA Institute which gives tours...

This is a beautiful resort​, and our room faced the ocean. The furniture is comfortable and the rooms were clean. There are plenty of activities for the children, as well as a family pool​. There is another, adults only pool by the lobby.

The resort is located perfectly above the flower fields and has beautiful ocean view rooms. They also have a shuttle that will take you to the beach or to Carlsbad Village. The grounds are well maintained, and there are gas grills if you want to make some of your own meals.

We bought in last year as we were down sizing from Seapoint. Wish we had not now. The rooms are not quite as good as Sea Point. And do not have the views. Also it is a huge time share. Wish we would have stayed with the sister property.

The room service and ocean views were great! The location was convenient to beaches, restaurants, and shopping. I got a great room rate through Expedia. The pool is beautiful and the nearby restaurant/brewery is within walking distance.

The staff and Mgmt at this resort were very professional, polite, and accommodating, especially Jeanette Gilbert who checked me in!! The 3 bedroom Villa with a fireplace was very clean and spacious. It felt like home away from home with maid service. My Adult children/ family thoroughly enjoyed the rare occasion to meet up and stay under the same roof....

The room was fantastic, clean and very great ambiance. We overlooked the family pool so my kids could play and I could be close to them. The staff provided tons of fun activities to do and my kids did not want to leave the resort. We will be back as often as we can. :)
