Originally I visited La Costa decades ago my parents had moved there. It was fabulous place, albeit with a very different vibe. It fell on hard times, and went through numerous hands. And then the Four Seasons Aviara opened. A couple of attempts were made at renovation, but they were half-hearted and it became a sad place. However, Omni has...

I stayed at the resort for one night while I was in town on business. Due to the traffic from the airport, I was a bit later arriving than planned, so I did not get to see all of the grounds. Valet service when I arrive was terrible, they were not very nice and I practically had to chase someone...

This is my first time at Omni La Costa in Carlsbad and it won't be my last! The resort is beautifully maintained, rooms are very large, the warm welcome and fantastic gift of fruit, nuts, and bottled water started my business trip off on the right foot.

I stayed at this property in late February, 2016. The grounds are beautiful and the people who work there are friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that, due to the age of the property, the rooms have a "musty" smell and are somewhat dark. The first room we were given had a really noticeable "old property" smell and was...

Resort was beautiful, clean and calming. Beautiful at night with the lighting, fountains - felt very safe. All staff open and friendly. Amenities abundant; close to main highway, but only noticeable if you are at entrance to resort. Room price was good if you attend a conference through the Chopra Center. Place had an air of calm, friendliness and safety.....

Let's start with the positives. The hotel and grounds were beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. If you like hotels where amenities are convenient this is not the hotel for you. If you like hot showers, make sure you are not in the 900 building. If you are an event planner, be sure to request a room...
