Not so much
Stayed for a wedding nearby. Rooms are old and need to be refreshed. Check in process forces you to talk to time share sales to get your parking pass. Little to no food service.

I could have done without the sales pitch when I git my parking pass but the grounds were gorgeous and inviting.

Very Good8.0
Nice stay. Location was easy to get to the main office, but since we arrived at night it was more of a challenge finding our complex in the dark. Our 1 bedroom was basement level and down steps that made for lugging our luggage. Little heads up at registration about that would have been appreciated. Even though the bathroom looked great, a nightlight would be helpful so one doesn't go crashing into the glass shower enclosure. Also be sure to purchase any groceries neede as the area is away from any stores.

Relaxing wonderland.
A great getaway! The suite we had (4 adult females) was very comfortable. We stayed 2 nights 3 days. One bedroom w queen bed and living room w queen size pullout. Full kitchen with all necessary pots pans dishes utensils etc. excellent for families couples and everyone in between. Pools playground quiet surrounding. Restaurant is okay. Theatre performance was wonderful. Gift shop and grocery store in premises like a mini convenience store. Activities each day to do or watch. Had a wonderful time. Went to downtown Escondido for dinner one night.
