Reviews of Aquamarine Villas
Great location- only 1 blk to beach. Units older but well maintained grounds. Late check-in was not arranged beforehand, so I would definitely recommend that.
We have stayed here twice in the past year. We have thoroughly enjoyed it and the kids loved spending time at the beach (1.5 blocks away). The two-bedroom is awesome and you get your own private garage which enters right into your unit. The staff was very friendly and informative, as well as responsive to our needs. There was also a corner market across the street if you wanted to grab a few goodies and/or snacks without running to the grocery store. There are gas barbeques on sight for your use as well as the cooking utensils and matches. They also provided computer/printer access, sand toys, pool towels, gameroom, etc. There are only approx. 26 units on sight so it has a nice residential atmosphere feel to it.
We can't wait to go back again.
The best thing about the resort is its proximity to the beach.
The 1br unit we stayed in had lots of problems including a non flushing toilet and garbage disposal. The maintenance man had the day off and they finally agreed to call a plumber. We left for the day and returned to a non flushing toilet at 8 p.m.. Called the office and they said it was our fault because we weren't there to wait for the plumber. By 11 p.m. the plumber had left us with a working toilet. The garbage disposal never did get fixed during the week. Was told a new one was on order.
The furnishings were dated and old down to the sheets that were mended. Sleeping on mended sheets was not comfy.
The staff was not helpful in general and were not always nice.
This resort is in a fantastic location.
Its only about a 2 minute walk to the beach and a lifeguard stand. The beach is clean, not rocky, no seaweed. Good surfing and swimming.
Its a short walk to the pier and to some great restaurants. Legoland is a quick 5 mile drive. And you're halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles.
The resort is older, but its much nicer than the picutres. As of January it is now a GOLD Crown resort. They have a small game room with pool table, ping pong, video games. The units are good size and newly remodeled. Parking is underground and easily accesible.
Overall a nice resort, great location and very helpful friendly staff.
