Summer Splendor: Family-friendly Fun & Coastal beauty await You

Summer Family-friendly fun in Carlsbad

Nestled in an ideal location with captivating coastal views and an array of amenities, The Cassara resort offers adventure-seeking families a delightful summer vacation experience in the vibrant city of Carlsbad.

Conveniently located adjacent to LEGOLAND California, The Cassara is a Tapestry Collection by Hilton hotel that was completely redesigned in 2020. The resort provides families plenty of ways to enjoy one of the most beautiful locales in the world, said Charity Deschaine, Corporate Director of Marketing & Revenue Management for Grand Pacific Resorts, which owns The Cassara Carlsbad.

“Coastal vibes and family ties is our motto,” she said. “The Cassara is commonly referred to as Carlsbad’s hottest new Hilton, and offers unmatched coastal views, super close proximity to all things to do in Carlsbad and its neighboring cities, and onsite amenities galore.”

The property boasts 119 modern rooms with King or Two Queen options, including King Peloton rooms for those looking to keep up their wellness routines. There’s also 29 recently added Family Suites that provide more sleeping and privacy options, such as a separate room with a TV and two twin beds for kids, along with a king bed and TV in the main room. The Cassara also features two resort pools, including a Family Pool equipped with a splash pad area and interactive water features and slide.

And not only is The Cassara conveniently located adjacent to LEGOLAND, the resort also offers families a private walking entrance to the theme park. 

“The pedestrian side entrance across from our hotel is very convenient for coming back and forth from the park for breaks, nap times, and even lunch,” Deschaine said. “Parents have shown great appreciation for that shortcut!”

Guests at The Cassara can also take advantage of the resort’s Ride the Tide Trolley to visit the Premium Outlet Mall or explore the 7 miles of Carlsbad beaches. The hotel shuttle also offers complimentary rides to the nearby golf course, The Crossings at Carlsbad, and the serene Ocean Pearl Spa for some self-pampering.

Dining options include The Cassara Kitchen & Bar, featuring a diverse menu with coastal-inspired libations and local ingredients. Also, the renowned Karl Strauss Brewing Company is located on the same campus, offering a selection of exceptional brewed IPAs and a full menu of comfort foods.

With its prime location, family friendly amenities, and a wealth of activities and attractions in the surrounding area, The Cassara Carlsbad is an exceptional choice for families seeking a memorable and enjoyable summer getaway. 

The Cassara offers a wealth of kid-friendly amenities and activities

The Cassara Carlsbad has long been known as a family-friendly destination that boasts a treasure trove of amenities and activities to keep kids entertained while they’re away from home.

At the heart of the resort’s appeal is its two pools. One is specifically designed for families, and features interactive water toys and a splash pad – voted Carlsbad’s favorite amenity year over year. Complimentary pool toys are available from the Activities Center, which also offers a game room and fun for the whole family.

“Kids and families love our property, as it provides more than the average pool experience,” said Charity Deschaine, Corporate Director of Marketing & Revenue Management for Grand Pacific Resorts.

If you’re looking to keep the kids active, The Cassara offers foosball and table tennis areas, a playground, and a half basketball court.

“Families can also enjoy quality bonding time by using the resort’s gas grills for a delicious barbecue cookout,” Deschaine said, noting that there is a Costco conveniently located nearby for groceries and supplies.

For nighttime family fun, Deschaine suggests picking up s’mores kits from the Activities Center and gathering around one of the resort’s many fire pits, which will be sure to score extra parent points, she said.
