Had a four day stay at the resort with 2 kids (8 and 11). Service was commendable - small issue with the TV converter which was fixed right away. Kids loved the pool area and the 2 water slides. Stayed at the hotel over ten years ago and had the same great service. Nice views of the golf course from...

My family of four loves this resort! Our room overlooked the gorgeous golf course and the big bath tub was amazing. The slides at the pool were a huge hit with my kids and the poolside food was yummy. There are cute shops to browse in and onsite restaurants, but they were a bit pricey. For breakfast we walked 15...

This is our second visit to La Costa, and it continues to be a stellar resort. The pool area alone was the focus with our family: breathtaking in beauty, and extremely well maintained. The multiple slides are great for a family with multiple age children. The staff is attentive and helpful, and went out of their way to ensure a...

We stayed here in the spring and I'm finally getting around to writing a review. There are so many great aspects of this resort and so many others where it fell short. First, with the room choice. We booked a Plaza suite which is really a regular Plaza room that adjoins to another room (your key will open 2 hotel...

Had a nice and relaxing weekend at Omni La Costa. Grounds and room were nice with a laid back tropical vibe. Dined at the lower end restaurant - meh. But the nicer restaurant on site was pretty good. There is a kids and adults pool. The kids pool had water slides and was pretty full with younger crowds, particularly on...

This resort is like an upscale Disney world for families. If I was looking to take a vacation with my wife and kids, this would be a great option. Lots of pools, a kids club, activities, dining, golf, spa...all nice. It's so inundated with families, however, that if I had been here hoping for a romantic getaway with my wife...

If you have kids, there are nice pools, water slides and water fountains to play. Our kids are 3 and 5 and the 3 foot deep pool with the adjacent little sand beach was perfect for them. The small water slide was a new and fun experience for them too.

We will definitely stay at the Omni Carlsbad again if we have an opportunity. It was everything we hoped for on our long weekend getaway. Rooms were clean staff was accommodating and the kids loved the pools, slides and water play areas.

We registered for Journey into Healing, August 6-9, 2015. What a great property for this experience. All seminars were held in the Chopra Center which is conveniently located adjacent to The Plaza. I'll focus on the hotel and spa amenities because the Chopra event would take an entire page. Our two queen size bed room was generous in size with...

We had heard such wonderful things about this resort so we decided to check it out with a group of our friends. We booked through Travelocity & they basically treated us like 2nd rate citizens. The front desk was not very friendly or accommodating even when they were making errors on our billing. It was clear they were understaffed, even...
