We stayed for three weeks at this resort and could not have asked for a better experience. I especially want to thank Sean Herriott, the front office manager, for all of his help. In addition, Ashley at the front desk could not have been more nice and helpful. The facilities are top rate and I would recommend this resort to...

We've spent a week at the Palisades. This resort is an icon in Carlsbad. We reserved a 2 bedroom ocean view. Very nice accommodations. Everything is in working order and exceptionally clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable bed we've experienced recently in our travels. Full kitchen and appliances---we are spoiled with fridges and ice makers in our...

Our family had a great time spending 7 days at the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort just before Labor Day. The Resort was beautiful, the condo was great, and the on-site shuttle drivers were incredible extras that made our experience even better. Every day, we'd ask shuttle drivers, Richard or Michael, to give us a lift to Legoland or recommend a...

The Grand Pacific Palisades is in a great location just above the beautiful flower fields and across the road from the excellent Music Making Museum. In addition, they have a shuttle service that will take you anywhere in a 5 mile radius which will get you to the nearby outlet mall and restaurants in the center of Carlsbad. We were...

We have just been to this resort and would recommend it. We exchanged our timeshare through RCI and we were delighted when we walked in to the spacious, clean, well decorated 2 bedroom accommodation. Unfortunately we had the kids area one side of us and a car park on the other, but it didn't matter as we didn't spend much...

My husband and I were looking to stay at a nice place with a ocean view. That is exactly what we got with a whole lot more. This place is gorgeous with a very nice staff. The little details like fresh fruit water in the lobby, popcorn in your room to enjoy a movie with, a towel specially to remove...

I would recommend this resort. The staff is friendly and efficient. When our room was not being serviced without request for a couple of days, the housekeeping manager was quick to resolve. We were pleased to have an adult pool separate from the children's pool. The adult pool has lanes for laps, music, a beer and wine bar, and plenty...

My review is solely based on the placement of a smokers pole right in the middle of the kids pool and play area. This is horrible placement and anyone with children would agree. Smokers would come out of their rooms and go stand by the KIDS pool to smoke? My family was forced to leave the pool area multiple times...
