Plentiful options for both adults and kids to enjoy
High daily resort fee
Guests routinely testify to the charm of the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa: the property is manicured to perfection, its sizable rooms allow guests plenty of space to breathe and unwind and its pools are numerous and intimate. Located near San Diego – between downtown Carlsbad and Encinitas, California – the resort is a short drive from the shore. This Omni hotel wows guests with its guest rooms, which are decorated in a neutral color palette and feature splashes of blue accents, marble bathrooms and spacious terraces accessible via sweeping French doors. Families especially love this resort thanks to its pool area with several pools; a waterslide and a splash pad; and Kidtopia Kids Club, which frees parents up to enjoy an afternoon at the spa, on the tennis courts or the fairways. Keep in mind there is a daily resort fee, and it covers Wi-Fi, Athletic Club access and more, though there are fees for other on-site activities, including the kids club. Groups can reconvene at one of several eateries come dinnertime – Bob's Steak & Chop House dishes out steak and seafood, while VUE's casual menu and popular weekend brunch will suit taste buds of all ages.

Critic Reviews


La Costa's sprawling property is picturesque, with white stucco buildings, manicured grounds, fountains and walking paths surrounded by flowers and foliage. Since the 400-acre grounds can be a hassle to walk around, guests can save time by catching the hotel shuttle.



Guest rooms are in shades of brown and sand with oversize chairs and sofas, while public rooms are filled with open-beam ceilings and leather furnishings. There is a large tennis center, a family entertainment area, a wellness spa, and two PGA championship golf courses that were renovated in 2013.

Travel + Leisure


Immensely appealing for both kids (playroom, water park, and Guitar Hero-equipped teen center) and parents (43,000-square-foot spa and holistic center founded by Deepak Chopra).
