This is a very nice hotel right across the street from the ocean. My trip didn’t allow any beach time but that was a shame because it is right there. We had breakfast at the restaurant and it was very good and not at all over priced. The room was large and modern, I highly recommend this hotel.

Please understand that if you are concerned about the happiness and safety of you and your family, this resort is a treat! They are well staffed, for bell and valet service. There is a parking lot right by, the walk to which is beautiful! However Valet is only $5 more. Go for Valet! They will treat you good. The restaurant is amazing, so is the pool. Gym is top notch. They have shuttle service to the beach. Great ambience, and the room is great. Very comfy stay, and I would stay here again and spend a little more money rather than stay at a trashy dump somewhere else.

Had a wonderful weekend for a sister birthday getaway! All of the staff, without fail, were so friendly and helpful. They brought treats to the room for the birthday girl. The room was perfect as was the sunset from the balcony. Chandlers, the restaurant in house, was delicious, and the service was excellent. We also enjoyed the fire pit outside for a bit. Wish we had had more time. Definitely would stay here again.

This is our chosen hotel in Carlsbad, we feel it represents the best quality/value ratio even if not perfect. Location is great, just over PCH from the coast which makes for some good walks, runs or sea swims, there's a nice SPA and good gym with super comfortable rooms. Negatively the restaurant and bar shut early, the food is ok but not great and service sometimes lacking due to staffing levels + limited bottled water in rooms, that said the staff are super helpful even if under pressure. Always happy to arrive here, have looked at other options but they don't match up.

This was by far the best trip I have taken. We paid in advance for 11 nights for a regular room. The week before the VIP ambassador, Julia, reached out to us and asked why we were coming and if we needed anything. I told her we were coming to celebrate my wife’s 50th birthday. I also told her I would like to take advantage of the Hilton Diamond status and get a room upgrade. Julia blew us away; she gave us the best room in the whole resort with the best view, allowed us to check in incredibly early, and then sent up a bottle of wine and a tray of snacks for us. That was just day one. The sunsets from room 2110 can not be beat. I had friends come over and we sat on that patio, listening to the live music below from an even the hotel was hosting. We came from Nov 1-12, and the beaches were empty. This was a perfect time of year to travel. The food was fine, the ambiance of the entire resort was amazing and every staff member was beyond kind and courteous. We had breakfast daily at Chandlers and then would go explore other parts of the area, come back in time for sunset, or some days just spent all day in that suite sleeping with the door open and letting that breeze sneak in. The location is amazing too, far enough way from people to feel like you were on an island but close enough to hit the interstate in a couple of minutes. Of all my travels and stays in Hilton properties, Cape Rey sets the bar.

A few weeks ago we hosted a wedding at Cape Rey with staff Kristen Prigatano, the Event Planning Supervisor. Rarely do we come across such kind people who not only care about their venue but also about their clients! She was an angel from start to finish and I would totally recommend anyone who is thinking about hosting an event or wedding there. Kristen made sure to attend all of our planning meetings and care great advice to the clients, she was also there at the wedding and was attentive to our planner needs that sometimes arise which we hadn't planned for. Having a venue that works with the planner as a team makes a huge different! Thank you Kristen!! Thank you Cape Rey Team!!
