“Christmas vacation”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

We own a time share in another state, but we decided to exchange for a different place. This was one of the greatest vacation we have had, and we travel a lot. The beaches, the food, shopping, all awesome. Walking every morning with beautiful weather was unbelievable!. Just wish washer and dryer was in the room, but that didn't phase our trip!

Stayed December 2013, travelled with family

We recently were faced with the dilemma of needing a much larger space to host a gathering. The staff at Seapointe in Carlsbad were absolutely wonderful. Kylie who is in charged of scheduling responded to us immediately. She worked with us to plan the perfect venue. It was super convenient to have them provide the tables, linens, coffee, parking spaces...

The best part was taking in the sunset in the evening. With the clubhouse perched up high, directly across from the beach plus its floor to ceiling glass windows was the perfect combination to provide the most breathtaking views.

I stayed here a little while back for my birthday. This resort is great, the staff is amazing from housekeeping to maintenance to the front desk and activities these people really know how to make you feel welcome! I love the third floor rooms for the view of coarse but I would enjoy any room there because the beach is steps away and you can see an amazing view from most anywhere on the property. Loved it and will be going back !!

We stayed a week and loved every minute of it. Right from the start, staff is great both friendly and helpful. We had a 1 bedroom great size and love the extra vanity in the bedroom very helpful and the jacuzzi tub was awesome.
The one and only con is the internet, they really need to work on that. Great location , loved the sunsets from our balcony.
No high pressure sale pitch either, which was a big deal to us.
Enjoyed it so much, we rebooked for next September.

Room Tip: Some rooms are bigger then others. It seems all but a very few have a great view also.

Green Features: They have a recycle bin in the room and we had a recycle container just outside our room.

I was fortunate to stay at this Hilton time share resort property on a family reunion. The facilities are good though a bit dated. Parking is under the resort and you need a code to enter and exit. Complementary beverages are offered in the main lobby but like most Hilton time share properties, no restaurant is on the premises. That being said, kitchens are in the suites and grills are located outside in the common area.

The pluses of this facility are its proximity to the ocean - across the street; proximity to Legoland - about a mile away; and convenience to the light rail transit system - just a 2 blocks away if you walk. The minuses of this facility are first and foremost the light rail transit system. The train horns blow from 4 am throughout the day till 1 am the next day. This occurs with great regularity every time the train convenient to San Diego comes by. If you are a light sleeper, this is not the hotel for you!!

We were in a 2 bedroom unit and the on-suite master bathroom had a soaking tub/shower combo. I'm 5' 2" so this was a big step up and over to get into the soaking tub to take a shower. The final "minus" was twofold: light bulbs and trash cans. One of the nightstand lights had a burned out bulb (yes, I can and did ask for a new one but that should be inspected before renting out the room). Second and a bit more odd, there were only 2 small trash cans in this 2 bedroom unit. One in the kitchen and the other in the guest bath (which our family reunion roommates used as their bath, understandably) so we had to take all trash through our on-suite bath through the bedroom, out into the living room, through the dining room and into the kitchen. I thought I had the problem solved by hanging a small grocery bag on the on-suite bathroom cabinet door but the cleaning service took it with them!!

This is a pretty small issue but it demonstrates my overall impression. The resort is adequate but not up to the standards I expect at Hilton. For those of you who are heavy sleepers the train horn blaring much of the night may not be a problem. Sadly, I am a light sleeper so despite the wonderful ocean front location I would take a pass on this resort in the future.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the ocean.

Green Features: Nice they had a paper recycling bin in the linen closet.

My husband and I stayed at this resort for a few days to start off our honeymoon. The location is incredible - just steps to the beach - and the condos are big and comfortable. We used the fireplace and patio several times during our stay. We didn't hang out around the resort too much so I can't speak to the amenities, but I can say we found the front desk to be very friendly and helpful, and they did not pressure us at all to sit in the timeshare presentation. The resort also sent over a complimentary bottle of wine and a congratulatory card, which was very nice. All in all, no complaints and highly recommended for anyone considering a visit to the Carlsbad/San Diego area.

We are owners at Seapointe and the staff are truly the very best. We arrived on a Sunday where we had champagne and were able to meet some of the other guests that would be staying that week. The Welcome Breakfast the next morning was great. Not only the food, but the staff was very helpful in letting us know various activities that were going on that week. We enjoyed having a glass of wine while we enjoyed the beautiful sunset with some of the other guests. All of the rooms face the ocean so we've never gotten a room with no view. We were in a two bedroom so there was plenty of room to have our grand daughter and family come over. Our grand daughter enjoyed playing in the grassy putt putt golf kids area with the replicas of dolphins. We had fun at the game night activities at the lodge, walking on the beach which was just across the street, and had a wonderful stay. The weather couldn't have been better.

Room Tip: We enjoy staying on the 2nd or 3rd floor rather than the first floor, but I honestly don't think...
