Lots of amenities: 6 pools, kid-friendly activities, 2 golf courses, an onsite restaurant with a 3-hour happy hour, snack shops, a spa, spacious villas with full kitchens, balconies, living rooms, bedrooms and double sink baths with dual head showers. A 45 minute drive to downtown San Diego, but a good location for relaxing or exploring San Diego County... Temecula wine county, Safari Park, Legoland.

I love the water area for the kids. I loved how well light the area was. I was not expecting the prices of the convenience store and pizza hut. I think it is better to eat at the restaurant versus paying those prices.
