La Costa Glen is a lovely community in Carlsbad. Their owners are Continuing Life Communities and have a fine reputation. There are 6 other CCRCs located in San Diego County. Some are coastal, (2 in LaJolla, 1 other in Carlsbad) and some inland (2 in Escondido and 1 in Rancho Bernardo [a northern section of San Diego City]). Some are non-profit and they all have very good reputations. They all have assisted living, skilled and dementia care on site .
As for deciding which one might be "best", that really depends on what you are looking for and the level of care your grandparents require. Generally CCRCs allow admittance at an "independent" level of care. Since CCRC's are for "life care" they do require a buy-in which can be costly. Additionally, there are monthly maintenance fees, etc.
If you feel that this is not going to be appropriate for them there are many other fine communities in the San Diego area that do not require buy-in, although there is usually a move in fee of one months rent in advance. (La Vida Del Mar being one of them). They handle many levels of care as well. Many have assisted living, skilled care and dementia care on site but run under the different licensure of RCFE instead of CCRC.
I'd be happy to assist you with your decision making, if you like.

Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) are designed for seniors who are currently living independently but want the security of being cared for when needed as they grow older. Sometimes referred to as Lifecare, they encompass a long-term care contract for independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and certain healthcare services all at one location.
Residents living in Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) can take advantage of a full range of care and services available as his or her health needs change without having to relocate. Residents usually begin in an independent living residence, transfer to assisted living, and if declining health dictates, move to an onsite intermediate or skilled nursing care facility. Many seniors feel secure in having a contractual arrangement with a CCRC for long-term care that covers the extensive and burdensome cost of nursing home care. Some communities offer residents with Alzheimer's disease specialized programs adapting to their changing needs.
The point is that each one has unique amenities and benefits; the only way to really know which one is best for them is to visit several top choices first hand. Again just like when purchasing a home, they'll know which one makes them feel best most comfortable by actually seeing them in person.

That is a great community. The challenge in answering you question lies in what level of health your grandparents are in. There are different communities catering to different levels, and interests for that matter.
I'm sure they will be well pleased.
Have you checked out La Vida Del Mar across from the racetrack? Its a maller community then La Costa Glen, with a much warmer feeling. They are known for their food as well. I always refer clients there who are looking for a CCRC in the coastal SD area. If you havent seen it, I can set you up with my contact there.
