We just got back from our 2nd stay here. We stayed here about 5 years ago when we were a family of 4. We stayed in a villa with a fully equipped kitchen and living area and separate bedroom. This time, we just took a impromptu trip and made our reservation over the phone as we were already driving there....

This is a great resort. We visited when it was cooler temperatures, but made the best of the resort. Beautiful pools and hot tubs. We were all adults, but this location was convenient for all of our needs. We enjoyed many meals in, as the unit provided everything we needed, and if it didn't we called and the item was...

We stayed 8 nights at the hotel. purpose of our trip was to visit LEGOLAND. It was great to be able to walk to LEGOLAND and save on parking. We visited LEGOLAND 4 days so it was very convenient. The hotel is showing it's age but I felt it was clean and kept up to date. As some reviewers have...

We have a 3.5 year old and 15 month daughters and were looking to get away. Needed a one room unit and found Grand Palisades. It was family friendly with a kids pool, spray park, activities and easy access to Legoland. Overall, we found a place we will come back to when we were only looking for a long weekend...

This place is so friendly atmosphere in here makes you not want to leave. S/O to the cleaning crew Araceli. I like the complementary stuff and activities that they have throughout the day a set schedule. The pool is family-friendly and my daughter is three years old and it's usually tough because she can't swim but she enjoyed all the...

The room was huge with a well stocked kitchen and anything extra we needed was available. The garburator got plugged but was fixed quickly by my man Roy and his crew. Overall a great spot and I will definitely be back.

We had an excellent time at Grand Pacific Palisades Resort . The facilities were top notch. Sammy and Nicole went above and beyond helping us with any of our needs. They anticipated our needs before we even asked.

Steve Bagley who drives the shuttle, the folks at reception, and the busy folks keeping things running impeccably -including those who work in Maintenance (wish I could remember all names!) were so friendly! All of them. With the gentleman from maintenance, I just struck up a conversation in passing outside and was impressed by his professional manor and though I...
