Cape Rey Carlsbad, A Hilton Resort

We'll see you at the Cape!

With spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and a short walk to pristine, picturesque South Carlsbad State beaches, the resort sits atop the crest (a crest we like to call the Cape!) of a series of gently rolling berms. Our Carlsbad resort takes full advantage of its western exposure and sweeping ocean panorama.
