An ideal family vacation pairs fun activities for kids with some relaxation for parents. The Grand Pacific Palisades Resort and Hotel provides both with a private entrance to LEGOLAND® California Resort and a interactive water park for kids, plus there's a spa, golf course and shops nearby.  

The "once-sleepy" seaside town of Carlsbad "has long been popular with beach goers and sun seekers" (Fodor's). Travel + Leisure describes this beachside community as "quieter and quainter" than the neighbouring cities with "miles of coastline... for swimming and surfing". Golfers should visit the Crossings at Carlsbad Golf Course, and there's the Carlsbad Premium Outlets mall just one mile away. Downtown San Diego is 45 minutes by car.

The hotel is very popular with visitors to LEGOLAND®, next door. It's home to more than 50 rides and attractions including the world's first LEGO® themed Water Park and SEA LIFE® Aquarium. The beach and Carlsbad Flower Fields are also on your doorstep -- explore 50 acres of blooming flora and fauna that showcase Carlsbad's rich farming roots (open seasonally).

On site, there are two swimming pools, one for children and a second Olympic-sized adult-only pool, plus Jacuzzis. In the evenings, stop at the Karl Strauss Brewery Restaurant and sample one of its 10 craft beers on tap. The food is predominantly American fare -- try the handmade lamb burgers. A complimentary shuttle runs daily to the hotel's sister property, The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa. Try dinner at the Twenty/20 restaurant, or indulge with a treatment or yoga class at the Ocean Pearl Spa. 

The spacious guest rooms have free Wi-Fi and balconies or patios. Upgrade to a Villa Suite for a full kitchen and sofa beds.
