Excellent furnishings, balcony/view of pools, beautiful presentation, great activities. Would return many times. Staff superb, friendly, helpful. Landscaping beautiful and luscious. If you have small children you will love access to LEGOLAND which is just minutes from the resort.

There are much better choices in Carlsbad. The rooms do not have a "resort" feel. Stained carpets, poor housekeeping, tired feeling furnishings. Front desk staff is professional and competent. Needs a major overhaul and upgrade. Does not meet the standards of most HGVC properties.
