I stayed at this hotel with my wife and two girls 8 & 16, we were in southern California to visit some colleges for my daughter combined with a vacation. We could not have picked a better place to stay. We stayed in one of the rooms facing the beach which is across the road from the hotel. While the...

Zero-entry pool for the young kids to play in. Very nice location across the road from the beach. Close from Legoland, Carlsbad Outlet/Flower Field, and the beach. I am not sure this qualifies as a resort hotel but it's just a name, isn't it? It's a nice hotel in a great location. I will come back here for the pool...

Great facility, great staff, very good food, and the location is awesome. However if you would prefer a king bed..please don't assume they will have one. Cuz they don't have many king bed rooms. It is not the ideal spot to host a marriage couples retreat. But if it's just you and a few others make your way down to...

My husband passed away and this is my first birthday since, so my daughters wanted to give me a relaxing "staycation" by the beach at a really nice Hilton Resort. This was not relaxing nor is it a "resort". First, when I booked, I did so through the Hilton website. They were supposed to have a "best price guarantee "...

The overall service, scenery and site were excellent. We were there for a marriage retreat and had an awesome time. The wait staff were attentive and kind and the rooms we used were perfect for the classes and fellowship we had.

We decided to stay here due to its proximity to Legoland where we took out two toddlers. It is much more relaxing staying here versus the Legoland hotel as we got to come back to some tranquility and the kids loved the pool. The hotel was not crowded during our stay in Feb. The staff were all very friendly and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled along the sunny Pacific Coast in Northern San Diego and only 150 steps to the surf, Cape Rey is the adventurous choice for the California traveler who seeks something different and unique. With spectacular views of picturesque South Carlsbad beaches, the resort sits atop the crest of a series of gently rolling berms - a crest we like to call the Cape! At the Cape you are just minutes from LEGOLAND(R)California and the historic Del Mar Race Track, or a short coastal drive to SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo or Safari Park, famous regional wineries, and award-winning craft breweries. For the adventurous types we outfit you for local deep-sea fishing, sailboat cruises, horseback riding, paddle boarding, snorkeling, surfing lessons, and kayak explorations. Foodies enjoy dining on-property at Chandler's, where you'll find familiar favorites prepared with a twist. For connecting rejuvenation with mind, body and soul, we offer one of the top 5 Hotel Spas in the U.S. By Travel & Escape, the Ocean Crest Spa. And with an array of excursion locales and onsite amenities, there's always something to do, see or eat at the Cape. ... more   less
