So Super Cool, ownership has the privilege of appreciation. From train to Resort to Thanksgiving & back to train to jet!

I’ve spent the last 8 Thanksgiving week there (GPPR), so no rodeo - good times timeshare & I partied with my 4 adult kids & 2 grandsons. I get oceanfront, hot tub outside next gate. We’d been planning it long time & every plan played into good times, all the time. Beautiful sunsets every evening - dark 1 minute later! Random Act of Kindness- Good Karma, good job staff, my hats off to you. Keep partying, I made it back!


Interesting location, great amenities!

The resort is located in what appears to be a business park as you drive up and its right next to Legoland. It is also adjacent to the Carlsbad Flower Fields. If you are fortunate enough, you can see the ocean but you have to look past the fields and other buildings to get the view. The resort is a few minutes away from the beach, but even without a car you can easily get there and Carlsbad Village by resort shuttle. Check-in was a breeze and the resort is quite expansive so there was a long walk to my room. Parking is underground and you have to pay attention to which elevator your room is closest to for the shortest walk. Since all of the rooms face exterior corridors, I was able to see the kids area and one of the arcades on the way to my room. I had a one bedroom and the accommodations were well appointed; it felt like a home away from home. There was a full kitchen, family room with a sofa bed, ample closet space, ceiling fans, a dining table and a balcony overlooking said Flower Fields. The housekeeping staff pushing carts up & down the walkway was a little noisy for my taste but I sleep in late and it is to be expected. The pool/hot tub area was located just beyond the lobby and there was a full bar just inside of the lobby. If you are strategic enough, they also have cabanas on a first-come first serve basis. if you are unable to snag a cabana, there appeared to be plenty of lunge chairs around the pool and hot tub area. Conversely, there was not a lot of seating around the fire pits and I'm pretty sure we were shoo'ed away from someone saving seats while we were just trying to take a quick picture. Overall the price, location, room size, pool/hot tub, amenities and shuttle to the beach make this an easy choice for future stays in the area.


Grand Pacific Palisades Resort, Carlsbad CA

Reviewed 15 november, 2021

This resort has some grand views but not for RCI members. I have a text from them (or representative agency) that says as much. We were treated to a view of their surface parking lot and the daily music of the dumpster train going to and from drop-off points. But it was not "Stomp". We were third class guests. Upgrades were not offered. Judging by underground parking occupancy, they were not full.


Another Amazing Stay - This Time With Four Families

Reviewed 2 november, 2021

This trip was originally planned as a family vacation then older members were concerned with COVID, so instead of cancelling we gave our booked rooms to friends and made a great time of it. As always our stay was great. We are owners with Hilton Grand Vacations and one of our deeds is with this resort. We went over to use the pool and have lunch at the HGVC MarBrisa - I don't think this is typically done, but I asked and they did it for us. All rooms were ready for our guests when they arrived. Us and our guests all had a great time. We utilized the single hot tub, family pool, BBQs, arcade, and more. This is a vacation that all of our kids will talk about for a long time. An excellent restaurant we discovered this trip was the Harbor Fish Cafe. We have been coming here for several years and always skipped this because I am not a fish eater. I was happy to find they had a burger that was amazing. All of the fish eaters in our group (16 of them) loved everything that they had! Thanks GPP for being so awesome each time we come. Until next time...
