On the positive side, this is a beautiful property with lots of gardens, pools, interesting buildings, a chefs garden, and other common area amenities. On the negative side, the rooms are said and dated. The first room we checked into had maintenance problems. The property is not easy To navigate. Lots of stairs. Poor signage makes for long roundabout trips to find the rooms. At the present time, there is still a serious shortage of staff to assist with luggage and Housekeeping. Daily housekeeping was not provided.

Went for a 4 day golf outing, very disappointed with the condition of the course. Our room had several maintenance problems and the food was also a disappointment for what they charge. Staff was excellent and the grounds beautiful.

The grounds of this hotel make for an amazingly relaxing wonderful getaway. San Diego is known for its cool temperatures and finding little books to sit and enjoy the great outdoors is wonderful. The restaurants have fabulous choices making you not needing to leave the property. The spa casitas with their heated beds are a wonderful option to enjoy the beauty. The spa pool also had its own bar so you can enjoy a craft cocktail poolside before or after your treatments.

The rooms were ok. Need a little updating. The grounds were beautiful with trees, plants, flowers & fountains. The Veranda restaurant was great at breakfast & happy hour. The kids loved the game room and night swimming. Would stay again.

Enjoyed the room, food and wedding reception. Especially the bellman, MARCIAL, who was very helpful and happy to be of service. He remember our named was very pleasant during our three night stay. Our room was on the 2nd floor with no elevator access. We are in our eighties and found the stairs a challenge. Fortunately there are rest areas all around and Marcial was there to take our bags and hanging clothes up and down the stairs and to and from the car. The food in the Veranda was very good and we enjoyed the outside dining. The gift shop had coffee and quick food to go.
