This is our second time at this resort since September and it continues to impress. It feels like a home away from home - we love having a separate bedroom, two bathrooms, kitchen and washer/dryer in unit - what a game changer with small kids. Housekeeping is wonderful and everything feels so clean. Nightly turndown service with bottled water was a nice treat. Our kids love the Kids Club with coloring, crafts, video games, kinetic sand table, books and games. On-site gym is well equipped. We stayed in the Summit Villas which is near the kids pool area - there’s a large pool, hot tub and 1 ft wading pool for kiddos. Drinks and poolside snacks available for purchase here. Beach toys are available to borrow from the front desk and they will load it all into your car for you. They are currently making updates to the resort and our villa had brand new carpet.

This resort is such a hidden gem and we have recommended it to all of our friends.

Worth noting: Carlsbad is quite a drive from San Diego but we feel it is worth it for this resort. We visited the zoo one day, SeaWorld the next, and it was about a 40 min drive both ways.

Dear West Coast 787 Guest,

What an amazing review. It certainly looks like our property was perfect for your family getaway.
Many thanks for sharing your recent experience at Aviara with new travelers that are looking for the
ideal venue for their family.

Yes, we are in the midst of a villa refresh. In fact the next time you join us all the villas will have new living
room furniture and new televisions!.

We look forward to seeing you in the very near future.

If you're seeking impeccable service in an atmosphere of understated elegance, look no further. Every employee we interacted with was polite, professional, and helpful, from the minute we made reservations directly with Four Seasons' phone center to the minute we departed with a delicious picnic lunch to enjoy on the road, which we ordered from the amazing on-site restaurant. We indulged in fabulous massages at the spa after a visit to the spa's steam room, followed by a beautifully prepared and graciously served (and surprisingly reasonably priced for this level of excellence) light meal of exceptional appetizers during the restaurant's daily happy hour. The quiet luxury of fluffy cotton bathrobes, slippers, lovely soaps en-suite, and other amenities like nightly turn-down service were a pleasure and added to our restorative and relaxing experience. Highly recommended!

Park Hyatt bought the Four Seasons Hotel on site but the Residence club is still Four a Seasons property.
Fantastic golf course ( $ 275 round peak) and the units are Four Season standards. I always take large 2 bed villa unit has 2 master bedrooms with master bath and center is extra large living room full kitchen another bathrooms all units with 3 balconies. Residence club members have to use their resort amenities and Park Hyatt is not part of it except pay for dinner , golf and tennis. The location is perfect to all attractions within driving distances .
San Diego zoo 35 min away, lego land 10 min, LaJolla 25 min Lots to do enjoy

This should be a place everyone visits once in their life. The surrounding were beautiful, staff was amazing and the food was great! The rooms felt like luxury suits and the I room dining service was 1st class. Everyone at the hotel went above and beyond my and my family needs.

We’ve stayed at several Four Seasons properties, but none with the vibe of this one. Not pretentious at all. The folks who worked there called you by name, remembered your questions and really added to the whole experience. The rooms are nice and well, roomy, with a fold out couch, along with a king size bed. There’s a little microwave and frig, so you can heat up a bite for breakfast or dinner. We did both, and still enjoyed some meals on site.
The place is set up for families, with a little, shallow pool for the littlest ones. There was a lot of Marco Polo going on during the day, and yet, the place was nice and quiet in the evenings.
Our room looked at the golf course, and had lush floral and greenery views. Not to mention watching the golfers putt out at the green.
If you like to walk, there’s plenty of that possible, especially along the lagoon. There’s traffic getting there, but the lagoon is designed for walking. The workout facility was well appointed, with bikes and treadmills, along with weight machines. They also offer yoga and other classes, but we just weren’t that organized.
The one element that really struck us is how nice all the people who were staying there were. It seemed that the people who stayed there were as authentic as those who worked there.
Or maybe the lack of pretentiousness of the staff set the tone for the guests. Either way, it was a memorably enjoyable stay.
