“A Miss!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

La Costa is a very nice looking property with great promise but the poor execution of its staff makes it a second rate resort. The lack of on site food/beverage choices for a property this size is noticeable. Golfers, don't be fooled, this is not a first class golf golf resort.

This trip was suppose to be a celebration for my girlfriends birthday. We were suppose to have an early check in. We arrived at the hotel @ 1130 and did not see a room until 515pm. The hotel did offer us a small discount and comp a small bar bill but still left a very dissatisfying taste in our mouths. The kicker was that the manager offered to have champagne and strawberries delivered to the room which she was very excited about but never showed. Another disappointment. I have stayed here multiple times but not sure if I will ever stay again. It is amazing how one bad experience can ruin all the previous great experiences.

I have always passed Carlsbad on my way to San Diego for a quick weekend getaway. The Omni is my new getaway destination and it's a little closer to L.A. than traveling to San Diego. The grounds were tranquil, my husband enjoyed the golf course, and we loved Bistro 65 for breakfast and dinner. The hotel staff was very accommodating, attentive, and responsive to minor issues I had during my stay. I will return soon.

La Costa, Carlsbad, is very lovely; nice grounds. Accommodations: comfortable beds, nice bath room, in-room safe, robes, slippers, umbrellas. Welcoming staff. Food somewhat pricey. Room service service fees are excessive (24%), in addition to delivery fee.

Although I was there for meeting and didn't get a chance to use the spa... the hotel was amazing! From bell desk to room service! What I liked most is that you didn't see a lot of staff around, but as soon as you needed someone they were right there!

This is a beautiful resort with an amazing tranquil feel. I stayed here for work and it felt like a mini vacation! The pools are numerous, the landscaping is beautiful, and the smell of fresh flowers follow you wherever you go. The staff was always on point and ready to serve. Our food was catered by the hotel and had some delicious offerings like tacos, pasta, steak and chicken, not to mention the excellent seafood spread. Overall, this place was great and I would be happy to stay here again.

My family loves to come here. The pool area is their favorite. Golf is excellent and the new greens are great. We come once a year and look forward to it every time. One of the nicest resorts in San Diego.
