My husband and I used this as a timeshare stay while we attended a workshop in Dana Point. Location gives it the one point. They were up front about construction going on. They did not reveal that the elevator would be undergoing "maintenance" for half our stay. I am walking with a cane due to a knee injury. The front...

Cockroaches! It smelled like someone had spilled an entire bottle of lighter fluid when we entered our unit so we opened slider to air out. Queen bed - no window in bedroom. In the morning I saw a cockroach scamper in the microwave. We had to go to a wedding so I asked that they fumigate while we were out....

We had a large one bedroom beachfront condo with a balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean for one week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a short drive to Old Town and the Mission area with shopping and restaurants and we even took a train ride to San Diego for the day.

PROS: very clean, very friendly staff and phenomenal location. Easy to get to Disneyland & San Diego Zoo. All new kitchen appliances and great large screen TV's with good channel options. Beds are very comfortable, free laundry, nice pools and great beach access. Paper products are soft not sandpaper like many chains. Maid service is still to be evaluated CONS:...

Satisfied with the accommodations and location. Phase 2 pool was my fav because it had less kids, perfect for couples who want to enjoy some quiet time together. Phase 1 pool is bigger and has 2 Jacuzzis. Both pools get a good amount of sun. Our room was clean and had everything we needed, even the extra pillows I requested...

What a wonderful place for a hotel...look out your window onto the beach and Pacific Ocean! There is a highway and a railroad track in between so you can't just run out the door onto the beach but an entrance is not far away. The hotel is somewhat dated and although they are trying to make upgrades I question the...

We stayed here in February (3 adults and a newborn) and our stay was great. The staff was very accommodating, rooms were large, and one of the pools was even heated. We stayed in an ocean view room which had a very large balcony with a barbecue. The kitchen area was fully equipped and made it very easy for us...

Even called three weeks ago to reiterate that I wanted ocean view and they said no problem. When I got there they played dumb. This is my view. The brochure makes it look great but it's dated. On a positive note, there were no insects, blood or pubic hair. Stay elsewhere.

This is my home resort and I have always had a good experience here. The pools are nice. Last time there they erected an inflatable screen at night and we watched the movie "Saving Mr Banks." The best dinnertime restaurant within walking distance is "Augostino's Italian." The Coach House is nearby for live music and dinner. I have even gone...
