Seaside stay complete with a freeform pool and standout spa a club's swing from Carlsbad's world class golf courses

The Lowdown

Unbeatable ocean views and family-friendly amenities abound at this beachfront stay 30 minutes north of San Diego. Camp out with your clan in the expansive suites, which feature such family-friendly comforts as pullout sofas, wet bars and dining tables for six, plus outdoor balconies with unbeatable ocean views. What guestrooms may lack in inspiring decor they make up for in mod cons, including 42-inch flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges and microwave ovens. Foodies can slake their craving for New American cuisine at the award-winning Chandler’s, where specialties include the freshly caught seafood pappardelle and an air-dried ribeye steak with parmesan-truffle fries. After making your rounds at the region’s world class golf courses, you can find your center of gravity at the 25,000-square-foot spa, which offers full body treatments and rituals like the Deep Sea organic bio-scrub and sea algae massage. Sun worshipers can laze by the freeform oceanfront pool or chill out on the sand at the nearby state beach.

In the Area

An affluent enclave about 30 minutes north of San Diego, Carlsbad offers a semi-arid Mediterranean climate that lends itself to golfing year-round. Enjoy 400 acres of coastal terrain among the 18 holes at the Crossings Golf Course, or go for the deep canyons, majestic bluffs and scenic ocean views at Torrey Pines. Follow your game with a stroll along eight miles of trail at the Torrey Pines State Reserve, a 2,000-acre oasis of native pine groves, unspoiled beaches and a lagoon frequented by migrating seabirds. Rest your legs at Carlsbad Village, a one-stop destination of shops, eateries and a buzz-worthy farmers market on Wednesdays. Take a daytrip with the family to the San Diego Zoo, which features many koalas that have made their way to the Golden State for the zoo’s newest exhibit, Koalafornia Dreamin’. Or stack your stay with a side trip to Legoland, Balboa Park or the San Diego waterfront.

Beautiful ocean view with dog friendly hotel
Hiromi C

We travel with our dogs throughout this year and this hotel is the only one so far welcomed our dogs with toys and poop bags in the doggy bag when we checked in.
Outside landscape was beautiful and there are walkway to walk dogs and enjoying ocean view and ocean breeze.
The room was located the top with balcony over looking the ocean.
Restaurant has outside seating and we were able to eat breakfast and dinner with our dogs because of the convenience we ended up eating at the hotel restaurant more often.
All of the hotel staffs were friendly including friendly to our dogs as well.
It’s very quite hotel and drive distance to San Diego and Newport Beach, Dana point where more activities and shopping.
Fitness center is a good size and had cold towels and cold water bottles which it was very convenience to a person workout for a long time.
Only thing missing to qualify the perfect hotel to me was bathtub,
But overall we had relaxing great 3days at this property.

Oceanfront Resort

Great Hilton Hotel right across from the ocean. The outdoor areas are great. The fitness center is well equipt and you can look out at the ocean while you work out. They have bikes you can ride during your stay.

Cape Rey is excellent, top to bottom

Super comfortable stay and a great staff! The food at the restaurant was excellent. Cannot beat the location, only 10 minutes from Carlsbad Village. Strongly recommend the Cape Rey for anyone considering a visit to the area.
