Reviewed 11 July 2014

My kids absolutely loved this resort! It was a very kid friendly place. Kids pool areas could have been cleaner, but the staff was excellent and we had a great family vacation. The location was perfect for all San Diego activities. Eat breakfast in the Marketplace and order room service for the kids for dinner. Much better options for kids at a better price.

We got a good deal on the room for 2 nights on July 4 & 5. However, it was still very pricey. From the fee to self park ($18 p/night), to the daily resort fee ($26 per/day) to the breakfast buffet ($26 each), it all added up very quickly! The adult pool and water slides were great though! Very family friendly...Kids everywhere with lots of programs for them too! This was my 2nd time there...Once for a company sales trip and this trip. Would definitely go back, however when it's not so crowded!
Rooms were average...Wait staff in the buffet restaurant was just ok. The pools and grounds are very lovely!

Room Tip: Older room, but comfortable.

La Costa does not live up to its potential and isn't worth the high cost. Resort management is misaligned, employees don't communicate with other "departments", the room was noisy, and the set up wasn't family-friendly. It was crowded, expensive, and poorly run, very disappointing.

Several family activities and many pools to choose from. Got excellent golf deal - child free with paid adult. Was a bit crowded during July 4th holiday but weather was perfect and easy to get to Legoland and San Diego.

Will tell everyone about this place. Everyone was so friendly and the hotel. grounds are amazing. Wish we could have stayed there FOREVER! The room was very spacious and clean. The staff was so sweet. We went to one of the shops and the lady gave my son's some toys that she had. The pools were great! will come back for sure!!!

After reading about this resort online it's often rated as a great spot for families especially due to the pool area. I was shocked that the pool area is seriously outdated! The splash pad area has peeling paint. The kiddie pool is a murky color maybe due to the sand?? The lounge chairs and tables are SO old and outdated with stains. The towels had stains, had to go back 3 times to get some without. The bathrooms are a hot mess by the pool, too. There was a large dead cock roach outside near our room. The sidewalks are stained. Carpets throughout the Plaza rooms are stained. Luckily our room was pretty nice looking. It's 425 SF so it wasn't too cramped. The bathroom feels roomy and has a nice glass shower and rain head. However the room did smell musty. Oh I haven't even mentioned yet how front desk was not friendly upon check in - we did not get a "welcome to La Costa Resort". It was simply "last name". The other thing that sucked was that we were looking forward to watching a movie in our room after our toddler fell asleep. But the TV said we weren't checked in! We called front desk but they couldn't resolve over the phone and left us on hold long time. We finally hung up and without notifying us they sent someone to our room. The resort is expansive and I'm sure during it's heyday it was very lovely. Now that Omni bought it - please renovate it!! Please work on customer service! We will not be coming back anytime soon.
