Stayed here for 1 week in late February. Good directions so easy to find, check-in was farily swift plenty of staff available and no real pressure to attend selling talk made although we were told if we didn't decide there and then we would get any of the free gifts. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa in the new Mountain lodge of the resort which was well away from the main area but still had a good sized pool and jacuzzi with fresh pool towels every visit. The apartment we had was in the basement so not too much light coming in although the master bedroom had a patio with a couple of chairs so you could sit outside. Lovely fireplace up by the pool so that it was nice to sit there in the early evening watching the sunset.
Apartment was modern with good decoration throughout kitchen well-equipped and excellent bathroom.
Resort is located 35 miles north of San Diego, but it was an easy drive down to the city which we did on at least 4 occasions and also good road across to the coast toward La Jolla which is a lovely town to visit.
Plenty of things to do in the area and there is a gold course and theatre at the resort plus a couple of restaurants.
