Grand Pacific - Great place to stay with a family

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 24, 2012

My wife picked this hotel because of it's proximity to Legoland. Walk out the front door, cross the street, and you're there in about 5 minutes. The hotel shuttle will also take you there.

Our room was nicely laid out, with a very spacious bathroom. It looks like most of the rooms have a balcony, which was a nice spot to hang out on after we put our 4 year old to bed. Even though we were overlooking the main entrance, noise from outside was not an issue, and I heard very little noise from the hallway, too.

The Karl Strauss brewery on-site had good meals for dinner, though the breakfast buffet was standard hotel fare. The best part was being able to fill a growler at the bar and take it back to our room, so we could have a grown-up party on the balcony while the child slept.
The resort is very family friendly. I think most of the guests I saw there had children with them. We took advantage of the very kid-centric pool and splash pad area. Having an enormous pool that is half 3 feet deep and half 4 feet deep was great for the 4 year old. The weekly activity calendar looks very busy, but we did not take advantage of it because we were there to go to Legoland.

I cannot say enough about how friendly the staff are. The shuttle driver and the concierge stand out the most.

I would definitely stay here again, and next time allow more time to take advantage of more of the activities.

Flower Fields

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 12, 2004

Grand Pacific Palisades Resort rises above Carlsbad's magnificent Flower Fields, in bloom from mid-March through mid-May, and is located less than a mile from beautiful beaches.

It is walking distance to shops and restaurants, but the selection is not that great.

Disneyland and SeaWorld are a short car drive away, and bus tours of Hollywood or Tijuana can be booked through the concierge.

Unique Quality: I loved the flower fields facing our room.
The restaurant on-site, Karl Strauss Brewery, was excellent. It was open for all three meals and had a variety of foods.

Going in spring would be great because of the flower fields, however not too close to beach.

Directions: San Diego International (35 miles - 56 km)
