A Family Break At La Costa Resort

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Carlsbad, Calif.- – Spring break is just around the corner, and La Costa Resort and Spa is enticing guests to its “Playgound for All Ages” with a host of family friendly offerings and significant savings on rooms and family suites.

Spring Break Value: Guests can receive up to 30 percent savings on standard rooms and 60 percent savings on suites this spring. In addition to the room savings, La Costa is offering significant savings on resort activities including 25 percent off Kidtopia registration, 50 percent off breakfast for kids and 30 percent off spa. Reservations can be made at

For Babies Too! La Costa’s supervised childcare program, Kidtopia, is one of the few resort children’s programs that accepts babies as young as 6 months. Babies have a special nursery complete with cribs and baby-friendly toys just for them. Children 2 years and under can play at Kidtopia for up to two hours per day, while children 3 and up have the option of staying for a half or full day.

Time Out for Adults:
Alone time – as a couple or alone alone – is a natural here, thanks to the Spa at La Costa where the American resort spa concept was born, two championship golf courses where golfing guests play in the footsteps of the game’s masters, a 17-court tennis center and a state-of-the-art Athletic Club with a full calendar of fitness classes.

Making a Splash with Kids: The centerpiece of La Costa’s attractions for kids is Splash Landing, where water fun comes in threes: three sparkling pools and three thrilling water slides, plus a water play zone, sandy beach, dive in movie screen and poolside refreshment at Splash Café.

Teen Scene: Featuring an ultra-cool underground energy, Vibz Game Lounge is designed to give members and guests ages 10 and up a place of their own to kick back, make friends, and enjoy all the high-tech games and activities they crave such as Xbox, Guitar Hero and billiards.

Active Adventures: Set on 400 coastal acres, unlimited active adventures await at La Costa. A sampling of offerings include golf and tennis lessons, family yoga at the Chopra Center, nature hikes along the Batiquitos Lagoon Trail, surf camp at nearby Carlsbad State Beach, fitness boot camp, and croquet. There’s even a family putting course where the whole family can brush up on their “short” game.

We’re Accommodating: La Costa offers a range of accommodations from standard guest rooms to Family Suites with two bedrooms, two baths and a comfortable sitting area. Kid-friendly room amenities include VIK (very important kid) goody bags on arrival, complimentary cribs, diaper genies, rental strollers and Nintendo Game Boys on request.

For Every Palate: Inspired children’s menus that emphasize healthy choices in kid-friendly presentations are a signature at Legends Bistro or the casual Splash Poolside Bar & Cafe.
