We were SO lucky to get to check out another one of ResorTime‘s awesome properties last weekend in Carlsbad, CA as part of a sponsored press trip. This time we stayed at Grand Pacific Palisades and if you’ve ever seen the Carlsbad flower gardens (or Legoland) then you’ve seen Grand Pacific Palisades! It sits on the hill right above the gorgeous flowers!

We arrived at night and the boys had thrown stuff all over the room before I took pictures but I still wanted to show you what this 2 bedroom suite looked like. 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen AND 2 bathrooms.

The boys though, had plans for more water time in their family water park.

We LOVE using ResorTime to book our vacations. I’ve said it before but having a full kitchen is so nice and the boys always love the hotel amenities like awesome pools. They have tons of great properties all over at great prices that are great for families, big groups (we still plan on booking a big friend trip to Carlsbad one of these days) or just a couple for a getaway!
