    Beautiful hotel but very disappointing service

    The hotel is absolutely beautiful. They did an amazing job on holiday decor. The grounds and facility is so beautiful and this is just one of the best locations in San Diego. Unfortunately this hotel seems to be very understaffed. Our meals were very disappointing, especially for the prices. One evening was so bad the manager graciously comped our bill. But the bad experiences continued through our entire stay. Our room phone was missing a chord, toilet was broken when we arrived and while these things were fixed within the day we reported them, it reflects the lack of attention to detail in how they are maintaining rooms. For a hotel at this level, I really expect more. We had one good lunch experience at the Clubhouse grill. We got there right when it opened and our server was incredibly attentive and provided an excellent dining experience. All other bar or restaurant experiences included incredibly long waits, servers forgetting drinks or orders entirely, rude and clearly disgruntled bartender, loud overworked kitchen that you could hear from the table etc. All things you could expect at a low end hotel but not one in the 700 - 1500/night price range. I expressed our disappointment to the front desk and they just apologized but it seems this may be common experiences at this point so there wasn't much they could do. If you do stay here, you will enjoy the facilities. I strongly recommend going offsite for all meals.

    Family friendly resort

    Incredible hotel. Beautiful, Tuscan feel, with a very family-friendly staff and facilities. We had a 5 year-old, two 3 year-olds, a 2 year old and a 6 month old in our group and they all had a great time. One of the pools was only one-foot deep and it was perfect for the littlest ones. The servers at Amaya were fantastic and catered to our every need. We will definitely return.

    Spectacular Property, Beautiful Location! Book now

    Absolute joy tp stay here. Staff was fabulous, except for the night gal, she could have been more welcoming. But everyone else was amazing. Would NOT recommend the Amaya restaurant. Took about 1 hour to get fed, at which point we had already decided to leave and get pizza at the social club since it was quicker. There were only 3 other people at the restaurant btw. Rooms were gorgeous, view was spectacular, property is beautifully maintained, and the live music at night was lovely. Wish i could have stayed longer.

    Loved the beautiful architecture and lavish marble, wood and granite, used on the buildings. Landscaping incredible and well kept. Food delicious. Grandkids did complimentary archery and loved it. Husband and son in law loved their golf game, and caddy. We all loved the choices of pools, and pool food/drink service, poolside! Well hidden gem!
