This place is better than the Ritz or 4 Seasons!!! The flowers & waterfalls & all the landscape are beautiful. Rooms are perfect & everyone greets you with a smile. The water slides for the kids are better than Carnival cruise line. The adult bar / pool / music is a fun and relaxing scene.

La Costa is a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy the beautiful California weather. The grounds are so beautiful that you feel transformed into paradise while there. Just love it and will be back in August.

Booked the resort for my daughters 16th birthday. She was looking for resort experience. We were not disappointed. The staff, and the amenities were great. The hotel sent complementary chocolate dipped strawberries to our room as a gift for my daughter. It was a great experience, and an unforgettable time for my daughter and her friends. I will be a returning customer.

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.

Overall a very pleasant stay. Friendly staff, good service. Spacious rooms overlooking beautifully maintained grounds. Cannot comment on the quality of the golf course, as we did not play golf during our trip, but enjoyed the multiple pools immensely. Will be back soon!

My husband, our two children, and I recently stayed at La Costa Resort. We needed a little break from normal life, and it certainly met every necessity and expectation we could have! The rooms are beautifully appointed - numerous TV channels, free bottles of water, comfortable and inviting beds... We stayed in a one bedroom suite, which was really just a regular room with an adjoining living area space (albeit a very big space). The room had plenty of space for our kids to run around and enjoy themselves. The hotel itself has great pools, water slides, and a little beach area for the little ones to play. A great amenity for families is that the hotels will give you free water diapers, just in case you forgot them, run out, or whatever! We splurged and got a cabana by the kid pools, which was totally perfect for nursing and for having some much-needed shade. To be honest, the cabana we got (#2) was a little on the shabby side compared to the rest of the hotel. There were dark spots all over it (mold/mildew?) and the whole top of it had rips all over it, but it did the job. Just not what I'd expect for such a high-end property. The food at the pool was good, thought there wasn't a large variety of food, but enough to get the job done. I was impressed that they thought of details like s'mores, but disappointed they didn't have any chairs to be able to sit at and comfortably eat the s'mores. Lastly, we went to the restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The breakfast buffet provided a wonderful variety of food from made to order omelettes and waffles to sausage links and fresh fruit. Dinner was just ok (disappointed that it was just ok), but it did offer a children's buffet of all the basic food (American) children enjoy eating -- chicken strips, mac and cheese, pizza, chocolate cake, the works! The one great thing about the restaurant is that the view from the outdoor seating areas is beautiful, overlooking the golf course and adjoining homes. Around the hotel are different shops, including a 24 hour shop/marketplace with virtually anything you may need on hand. In sum, the La Costa is a beautiful, well-thought-out hotel with anything one could really need. It definitely deserves a visit or two!!
