our flight from CO was cancelled and we didn't get out there. I spent two days trying to contact Travelocity with no luck. I'm not sure it is worth booking thru travelocity

Nice hotel, some drawbacks

Pool was great for the kids. It got really crowded on the weekend. Hotel check in is really late 4 pm and our rooms weren't even ready by then. Front desk staff did little to remedy the situation. They were very unfriendly and unhelpful. I had to ask for a manager to finally get our room. I've been treated better at lesser hotels.

Great family resort

Pros: Grounds staff
Cons: perfect stay
This is a really nice place. Spacious, friendly, very clean and a lot of fun. Skip Legoland, skip the headaches, spend quality time with your kids and don't get crushed. I would definitely visit again. Highly recommended!

More like 3 stars instead of 4 1/2 stars

A 3 star hotel is clean and comfortable and this one was too but most Hotels have breakfast and don't charge you an absorbent amount of money. I was charged $18 for self parking, $18 for a movie, and sure there was lots to do if you want to pay extra. $308 was way to much to spend for this hotel. I will not be booking with this site again.

The grounds were magnificent for watching the golf tournament.

Pros: Free Internet
The spa personnel were not too friendly. The massage therapist reprimanded me for missing her instructions. Made me uncomfortable despite the fact that I should be having a calming experience.

NOT A SPA MORE A HOLIDAY INN FOR KIDS

If you think this a 5 star Spa its is not - It is not tranquil either - I went last weekend and it was full of screaming kids - probably 60% of the hotel was under 14 yrs old - The brochure is totally false advertising and does not mention anything about it being a kids spa. - There are only 2 restaurants one of which we were going to have to wait for a table for 2.5 hrs. If you want a peaceful , romantic weekend this is not the place. If you are a family with children great.

Superb Resort

I had an amazing stay at La Costa and would go back in a heart beat. The rooms, grounds, and amenities were superb. I enjoyed all the fitness activities (the gym overlooking the beautiful grounds, a variety of fitness classes, yoga at the Chopra center, and the tennis clinic) at the resort in the morning and than would head to the adult only pool in the afternoon to relax. Resort is also kid friendly with activities, camps, and slide pool. Customer Service was exceptional. Every where I went in the resort I received a warm greeting by a staff member and they were happy to be of service with any questions.
