We have an upcoming stay at Cape Rey Carlsbad, a Hilton Resort. TripAdvisor ranks this hotel number 6 of 36 hotels in Carlsbad. I chose this location because it seemed to be away from the fucking hustle and bustle of San Diego, and Los Angeles. It seems to be tucked perfectly in between, but I'll let you know.
Below are some helpful reviews courtesy of our friends at TripAdvisor.
My stay at Cape Rey was very good - but NOT my experience with the spa. I booked a 4:00 massage for myself and friend - when we arrived at 3:50, we were told our massage was booked for 3:30. I know without a doubt that I booked it for 4:00. We were rushed through a 25 minute massage and expected to pay full price! When I complained, they decided to only charge us $75.00 instead of $130.00 each. I cannot begin to express the level of disappointment I have with Ocean Crest Spa.
