First, this really should get 3.5 stars
Took my daughter here for a special weekend. While staff is friendly and place is very kid friendly, the property feels dated and cluttered. While rates aren't over the top, the Aviara down the street is better value, as are the various properties in Dana Point a little further north.
The rooms are dated in spite of a recent renovation (maybe we got the old wing) and the pools are very crowded. The restaurants are all decent and not overpriced but there was no real stand out.
On the positive side, the staff is plentiful and friendly. The golf course is nice and the water slides and arcade are a plus for kids. But all that said, La Costa overall is just ok.
