We had an excellent experience. The unit was most comfortable with a view of the pool area and ocean. The staff was most helpful and pleasant. The location of this resort is spectacular, sitting above the flower fields in Carlsbad. The resort itself is beautiful and well maintained.

Room tip: Higher floors give better view with less noise. All units on west side have ocean view.

Great location, nice pool, spa and work out facility. Had brunch at the restaurant which was also good. The room was nice, but the sofa bed was very uncomfortable and my kids preferred to sleep on the floor. We were on the ground floor and it was loud. You could hear people walking above you and the bedroom is right next to the exterior hallway, so expect to hear noise starting by 7AM. Earplugs helped on nights 2 and 3.
Staff was friendly and helpful.

Room tip: Go for a room on the 3rd floor, ground floor is loud.

Staff is wonderful, especially Andrea at the front desk - she remembered our family from the last time we were there. Resort provides a comp shuttle service which is great. Being close to LEGOLAND is a hit with our kids as well as the Carlsbad outlet mall - plenty of shopping, close to the beach, great restaurants. Carl Strauss is on the property - had an amazing dinner there with the family. Excellent service.

We really enjoyed our stay here as everything seemed perfectly set up for our family to have the best time possible.

Great location - easy to get to, just across the road from Legoland, less than half an hour from San Diego, walk or very short drive to many kid-friendly dinner options.

Great facilities - we just stayed in a hotel room but there was a nice kitchen area off the bedroom with a sink, fridge and microwave which made meals very easy; kids pool very big with a nice water park area and a hot-tub; basketball hoop, table tennis table, foozball, air hockey, pool table all available in/around the activity center; Karl Strauss brewery right there if you wanted a buffet breakfast or other food; adult lap pool nice and relaxing after the kids went to bed.

Great people - very welcoming, friendly and informative. They really seemed to want us to have a good time including my kids who can be very noisy and active.

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone with children that want to go to Legoland.

Room tip: One side of the hotel faces a parking lot, the other side a valley then out to the ocean so if you want a view, go for the ocean-side.

Overall great experience for our family.

- very courteous staff since the check in
- nice concierge service, they don't feel bad to explain in details what activities going around, how you can get discount, etc.
- so many activities inside the resort: ping pong table, adult and kids pool, spa, two outdoor fire rings with chairs around, a little park for kids, a nice walking trail around the resort with superb ocean view
- free fast wifi
- nice and big rooms with well equipped kitchen
- walking distance to lego land, no need to drive. The walk just takes 5 minutes. Ask the staff how to access the pedestrian gate of legoland, it's a nice shortcut staff told us.
- costco on the other side of the street
- a nice and upscale outlet mall on the other side of the street
- many delicious restaurants around, ask concierge about restaurants matching your taste. They explain well where to go and give you a map.
- 2 mins driving to carlsbad beach
- very close to Carlsbad village.
- very nice breakfast buffet at restaurant with a very reasonable price.

So to be honest we really enjoyed our one week vacation here, and being close to so many things we had so many options and didn't get bored what to do. There was always something to do.
Also the staff were very responsive and always taking your concerns and questions seriously, so we could get a lot of good info from them about where to go and what to do. We definitely will go back.
