... than normal, so that we could get a good look at the processes involved.
A few more rides, and it was nearly closing time. A visit to Legoland wouldn't be complete without purchasing some Lego, so we finished our day at the shop - these were the biggest crowds we had to negotiate all day, I think most other people had the same idea! The boys had been saving some of their spending money for this moment, so it was like Christmas for them to choose what they wanted off the ...
... s life in campsites across America, and it adds some nice flavor to the trip.
Since we’re talking about the Clampetts, I will add here a story overlooked from early in the trip. Something was going on with our roof rack that caused an unbearable buzzing when the temperature was over about 80 degrees and our speed exceeded about 40 mph. We thought it was the Yakima cargo box, or maybe something in the box, but ...
We're returning to North America today. Flying to Los Angeles via Seoul, South Korea. It's going to be a long day. In fact, we'll get to live this day twice. Speaking of this day, its March 11th and the second anniversary of the big earthquake in Japan. Flags are flying at half mast, and the Hilton hotel posted a notice this morning indicating their continued support in the move forward. It's good to see that the disaster has not been forgotten. Ian was saying that something like ...
... flirtatious waiter walked up and wrapped me in a blanket. The whole restaurant had a good laugh. My freezing escapades were eventually overpowered by my love of the calamari I got to taste. Eating led to a little more shopping, which is where I bought a geometric stain glass star and a rosary bead necklace. Eventually we made our way over to the theater, got our tickets, found our seats and enjoyed an amazing play. The play was The Man Of La Mancha and the actors were ...
... t such a badly planned, hideous sprawl of traffic jammed highways and smog. As darkness falls it becomes to hard to see out the window but I peer out occasionally, hoping to catch another glimpse of that coastline with its endless ocean. San Diego is sunny. Really sunny. But not to hot. In fact it’s entirely pleasant and stays like this for most of the year – it doesn’t usually get much hotter or colder than this and it rarely rains. I am ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hyatt Aviara Resort Carlsbad
Good with the Bad
Beautiful hotel and service was great....great for kids.... they charged for parking which I am never a fan of...highly recommend it... no excellent just because the weather was not good.. but not there fault...!
Our one bedroom villa overlooking the golf course was lovely. TWO bathrooms..so nice not to have to share. The soaking tub was deep and divine. The newspaper every morning, self parking, concierge help with sight seeing, airport transport made our visit special. And the restaurant was just wonderful.
We enjoyed watching the bunny rabbits grazing on the lawn.
My husband and I stayed there last year, and loved everything about it, especially how very courteous everyone was. Your guest relations program is top-notch. When we're back in that area, we'll definitely be there!
Absolutely beautiful. Location, ameneties, service...you will be pleased unless however you are impossible to satisfy. If you are looking for a top tier resort you will find it here.
We stayed in a one bedroom suite on the golf course during Christmas week. It was about $1000 per night, but worth every cent. THIS is the place to stay if you want attention to detail and spectacular service.
My husband and I stayed here Oct 10 - 13. Upon arrival, we informed the registration attendant that we were on our 10th Anniversary trip. He promptly upgraded our room. When we returned from a day of site-seeing, we had a bottle of champagne waiting for us to say Happy Anniversary.
Child friendly luxury
Just back from a two night trip with our four year old son, and have nothing but the highest praises for this hotel. Everything they do for the kids is greatly appreciated! The rooms were spacious, and lovely.
The beds were perfect! The staff was wonderful and helpful in every way. We will be heading back here soon I hope. It was an extremely relaxing and luxurious stay. And that's saying alot when traveling with a four year old!
The Aviara is only about 30 minutes from my home but I chose to stay there with my family on a "mini-vacation". We stayed in a downstairs suite and it couldn't have been more perfect. The staff was more than helpful, polite and knowledable. The basically bent over backwards to make our stay as nice as possible. The little "perks" they provide children are the best. We got to our room and there was a little stuffed monkey waiting there for my 2 year old nephew as well as little sponges arranged on the the bathtub tile spelling out his name "T-R-E-V-O-R". We went out to the pool and the staff there was very accommodating.....setting up our chairs, opening the gate doors, bringing out drinks and lunch. We we retured to the suite there was a plate with a huge decorated cookie and milk and fruit and little froggy designs on the plate for my nephew. I was almost getting jealous with all the attention he was getting!.....jk. The food at the hotel was good, and all the utensils for kids are of one theme or another (Pooh, Toy Story, etc.). There were 2 pool area, one a "quiet" infinity pool for adults and one for families which feature a 1 foot deep pool for little kids as well as a larger one for families. Our stay was wondering and we will definitely be returning again in the future.
Could be better
We were there about 2 years ago while the pool and spa were under contruction. Water leaked onto our patio from above, the housekeepers took a while to pick-up plates and the temporary health club services were pathetic. Service otherwise was very friendly. I am certain the place has improved by now!
