As our property is located in a residential area, we are considerate of our neighbors as well as our resort guests when it comes to sound overflow. Amplified entertainment is not permitted at any of our outdoor locations (with the exception of outdoor ceremonies) and acoustic entertainment is suggested for all patios and lawns. Amplified entertainment will be contained to our indoor venues. In compliance with the Town of Carlsbad law, all outdoor entertainment must conclude by 10:00 p.m. Please consult your Catering Manager.

No food or beverage of any kind will be permitted to be brought into LA Costa Resort & Spa by the host or invitees without advance written notice from the resort. California law requires all alcohol to be purchased and supplied by the resort and all service of alcohol must conclude at 2:00 a.m.

If actual attendance is greater than the guarantee, the Master Account will be charged for the actual number of attendees.
