“Better than expected”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

My wife and I, we booked this resort through the RCI points, and we have spent there the week of November 9-16th (Saturday to Saturday). We booked one bedroom unit with kitchen.
We arrived to the resort around 3 pm, and the checking in took only about 2 minutes as everything was prepared for our arrival. We got unit #148, with patio facing the pool area. The unit consisted of one bedroom, two baths, and small kitchen with table top burner, fridge, microwave and sink. Cupboards were full of plates, cups, glasses, utensils, etc., definitely very well equipped. The living room had a dining table for four, coach, chair, free standing wardrobe, and coffee table. Also it contained two TV’s, one in the bedroom and one in the living area. When we entered the unit there was some kind of smell (disinfectants?), but after opening the patio door it disappeared quickly. Everything is not new but it was very clean and well taken care of. Small patio had a table with chairs and a lounger and it was facing a hot tub, a small swimming pool, and a “grill” area that had 3 very good grills. Everything was super clean.
Overall impression was very good and we have enjoyed our stay there. It was very quiet, everything was working and the staff was very helpful if you needed help. Definitely the resort is not new but well kept, and the location is really good, close to the I-5 freeway and close to the beach, several good restaurants nearby and grocery stores.

Although we live in San Diego, we spent a week at the Winner’s Circle Resort in Del Mar. We enjoyed a spacious two-bedroom that had a flat screen TV in each room (which our two girls enjoyed during our stay), two bathrooms, a large kitchen, and two balconies! Additionally, we had daily maid service and came back each day to a clean room. The resort itself is located just a few blocks from the freeway and is 30 minutes to all the San Diego attractions (Sea World, Old Town, the San Diego Zoo, etc.), 10 minutes to LEGOLAND in Carlsbad, and 60 minutes to Disneyland. We recommend this location to anyone visiting the San Diego area.

I have owned a 1 BDRM 2 Bath time share here for 3 years, but this is the first time I have stayed here.
Great area as long as you avoid I - 5 on Friday afternoon.
Good Starbucks coffee and nice tea selections each AM off the lobby. On Monday AM, they host breakfast next door. I missed that as I had to go to Ft Rosecrans.
I was planning to sell my unit, but now I think I'll keep it.

We enjoyed every aspect of our time at the resort. Our room was tastefully decorated and the bed was great, very comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen was perfect for those times we didn't feel like going out.The grounds are beautifully maintained. There are flowers blooming every where. It's clean, pretty and very well managed. There are tennis courts and two restaurants adjacent to the resort. Simply put, it's the best value in the area!

We traded with Interval Int.. Our room was spacious, with a lot of small things that really made it very very good. Oversize towels, LOTS of drawer space (first time I've ever had more than enough) and uncluddered! We used to live in Encinitas which is down the road so we know the area well, and I don't know of a better place in north county coastal I would rather stay!

Room Tip: Get a room in a wing that has been remodeld. I think one of the wings is not done yet (oct '13)

We loved our suite which was a trade through RCI. We had never been to that area before and loved it, so close to many beaches, restaurants and fun things to do!
The rooms were light and airy and nicely decorated, everything was provided, everything was clean and worked and what else is there to say except we will be happy to return sometime!

Great location, great rooms and great staff. This was our first time here but we will be back. Our very clean room had a fully equipped kitchen with all of the cook wear we needed. The rooms were well appointed with large TV's--one in the living area and one in the bedroom. The resort was not noisy not even the pool area. Parking was free and not hard to find. We had two bathrooms which was great. The bath towels were huge and they provided pool towels as well. We had a wonderful stay and experience.
