“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2010

Beautiful grounds, clean rooms full dishes, nice pools and club house close to I5 for ease of getting around---perfect choice for families with small children or teens like us. I am so glad I did not listen to the reviews on here as it was a GREAT PLACE

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2010

This RCI timeshare is the worst exchange we ever received. We stayed in room 228, a one-bedroom, one-bath unit on the second floor. The carpets throughout the facility appears as if they have never been replaced. The hallways smelled moldy and musty. The carpets in our room were filled with stains. The "kitchen" appliances were outdated as well. I would not reccommend this "resort" to anyone....do yourself a favor and PASS when this exchange opportunity arrives...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2010

We just got back from a weekend here on an exchange of our RCI points. It’s not especially scenic – located right off the I-5, across from the Del Mar racetrack, but it is just a few minutes drive from the beautiful, quaint beach communities of Solana Beach, Del Mar, Cardiff and Encintas.

LIKES:
POOL/JACUZZI AREA – nothing fancy, but it was comfortable and the kids enjoyed it.
LANDSCAPING– colorful flowers planted throughout the courtyard and the grounds.
CLUBHOUSE w/ pool table and ping pong table outside was nice; fitness center was decent. Tennis courts looked nice, but we didn’t have the chance to use them.
NEARBY - we really did enjoy visiting beautiful Moonlight Beach in Encintas, a great lunch on the patio at Wine Steals in Cardiff, nice dinner at Beach Grass Grill in Solana Beach, and a walk the next day at beautiful Powerhouse Park and playground in Del Mar on the way home.

DISLIKES:
THE ROOM – adequate size, but smelled musty and was a bit outdated.
KITCHENETTE – very small; tiny under-the-counter fridge (and the freezer part wouldn’t even freeze ice), no stove, just 2 burners, and 1 was broken.
FIRE PIT by the pool – great idea, but didn’t work well; it kept going out, and smelled like gas fumes.
ACTIVITIES were pretty sparse – a reception on Sat. 3-6 w/ juice, ritz crackers, cheese and veggie plate, and on Sun. 8-10 am a very minimal breakfast w/ packaged pastries and soggy melon.

All in all, we had a nice weekend there enjoying some family time, but it doesn't really have the "vacation" feel we enjoy in a timeshare.

Stayed at resort on an RCI exchange. Not the place to go if you want to walk places...next to the I-5...not very scenic also..If you are looking for a resort with activities this is not the place.. Mostly geared towards older adults..

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2009

Stayed a week . Loacated 1 block off I-5 frwy, across from Del Mar Fairgrounds, a few blocks from the ocean. This is an older facility, but pretty well maintained, Furnishings in one bedroom condo were average, Nice to have two bathrooms. Very small kitchen with no room for groceries,but adequate for cooking facilities. Nice pool area and club house. You get clean towels each day if needed, and mid week cleaning by housekeeping.

There was no road noise or traffic from I-5, Very good restaurant (FISH MARKET) next door., Only complaint was the noise heard from other guests, We had ground floor unit, heard people above using bathroom above, walking around, moving chairs, etc. Some noise from other adjoining rooms. It wasn't that other guests were particularly loud, just there is liitle sound proofing between units. Nevertheless, we would stay again on a return visit.. Don't expect 5 star luxury, but very decent accomodations for the price.
