“Fantastic location but not so clean.”
Reviewed 1 January 2008

Before I get to the comments, we booked through All Seasons Resort Lodging. They were very friendly and when we had some problems (see below) they came very quickly to try to resolve the problems. I give them two thumbs up. To get the key you have to go to there office first which is on Mission street just west of the Capri.

We are of a very mixed mind in reviewing this condo. We stayed in two different rooms during our 6 day stay (712 was a 2 bedroom corner and 310 was a 2 bedroom). Our comments apply to both.

First the positives:
Awesome location right on the beach. Great views.
Lots of room - large rooms, 2 bathrooms.
Grocery, drug stores nearby.
Parking included and very convenient.
Seemed to be quite secure in that there was on-site security and fobs were required to get in.
Large heated pool with hot tub. Not ever busy - often we were the only ones there.
Beds were comfortable and linen (towels, bedding) appeared clean.
VERY quiet (I am quite sensitive to noise so trust me that the only noise I heard was the ocean).
712 being a corner had a extra view to La Jolla. 712 also had a large screen plasma TV.

Now the negatives:
Not really clean. The rugs, especially in 310, were quite stained. 310 had a vacuum so we vacuumed and could tell it had not been done before we checked in.
Questionable maintenance - no internet in 712 and no heat for the last 2 nights in 310. The All Seasons guy could not get the heat fixed but brought over a heater right away.
Pool was not far but required a walk down a dark alley.
Eating places in the area did not appeal to us and we drove elsewhere to eat.

Tip - Konos is a cafe just down the boardwalk by the crystal pier. Open early and serves great egg burritos. Recommended.

Tip - We used the towels from the room for the pool. Wear your shoes though as the alley can be hard on bare feet.

Tip - There are some homeless people about but we never felt unsafe and even walked along the boardwalk, to the pool and in the area after dark.

Tip - Our son got stung/cut by something in the ocean and his foot swelled up and turned black withing hours. Wear aqua shoes if you go in the ocean.

I cannot rave enough about our stay at Capri by the Sea. We ended up getting into San Diego around 11:30 and even though check in wasn't until 3:00 we called and they were able to let us in early which was great. You cannot beat the location right on the beach and EVERY room has an ocean front view. Although the "porch" is small, (you can really only stand out there) watching the sun set is wonderful. Our condo (I believe was 809, one bedroom) was absolutely gorgeous. I wasn't sure what to expect based on other reviews but we got an amazing condo. It had granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and a huge flat screen tv. We rented a car (which I highly recommend) and there was a grocery store a couple blocks up so we could make our own meals. There was a rooftop area with a couple grills which was nice as well. I must also compliment the rental company Beachfront San Diego. My boyfriend proposed the second night we were there and the staff came in while we were at dinner to decorate the condo. They did a wonderful job setting a romantic scene and stayed late to get it done. We also had some problems with the tv but they came right over and fixed it for us. Overall we had a great stay!

Stayed October 2007

Reviewed 11 October 2007

We stayed at the Capri by the Sea from September 29 to October 6. We were also assigned 607 which is a sixth floor one bedroom apartment. The previous reviewed said the apartment was recently renovated - that surprised me a little, because it was nice - but didn't seem stunning in any aspect. It was clean and tidy thoughout - tiled floors everywhere apart from the bedroom, nice furniture, and TVs both worked. The bathroom was a little small but everything worked. It had pretty much everything we needed, we only missed a hairdryer.

The parking space assigned is a little tight - and we only had a mustang. Anything larger and you'll struggle. Because we were there in the off season, the beach and all around was quiet, but that suited us. I'd read that the area was kinda like South Beach, Miami, but it was more "downmarket" than that. Didn't love the Pacific Beach area. However - San Diego itself has lots of alternatives and the apartment location means you are just a few minutes drive from everything.

We LOVED San Diego and would recommend to anyone to go there. Whilst there, Capri on the Sea is a good option if you like the self catering condo thing. It suited us very well and provided good value for money.
