Fodor's Expert Review Omni La Costa Resort & Spa

2100 Costa del Mar Rd., Carlsbad, California, 92009, USA

This chic Spanish colonial oasis on 400 tree-shaded acres has ample guest rooms, two golf courses, and is known for being family-friendly, with plenty of kids' activities (including a kids' club, a game room, eight swimming pools, three waterslides, and a water play zone). Guest rooms are in shades of brown and sand with oversize chairs and sofas, while public rooms feature open-beam ceilings and leather furnishings. Among the six dining options is Bob's Steak & Chop House serving fine wines and large cuts of prime steak, chops, and seafood. There is a large tennis center, a family entertainment area, a wellness spa, and two PGA championship golf courses.
