Travel Blogs from Carlsbad
I had made it to Andrea's safely so the next thing I needed to do was get organised and plan what I intended to do over here. Step one was getting a Social Security Number, than a bank account and an American number. This all took a couple of weeks. The next step was to revamp my resume and apply for jobs. This was a long repetitive process and I found myself looking up Summer Camp jobs so I could spend more time travelling and the fact that camps hire a lot of foreigners. ...
... of getting them, then see the “expensive option” – they’ll print the photo onto a wall of Lego bricks. Now that is unique. Although we have to get two, well, we’re on holiday! And now we have two unique ride photos that are also Lego!
We find ourselves near a Lego 4-D movie cinema, with a show starting in about 20 minutes, so we take a rest while waiting and catch “The Adventures of Clutch ...
... in London.
I headed to the beach around 10:30...it was perfect. It was a little breezy which made even laying down on my towel on the sand still nice. Sometimes when you lay down, it gets a little too warm for me, so I have to set in a chair to stay cool...not that I am complaining by any means. Upon having enough laying around time, I sat in my chair and finished my this year's trashy Danielle Steele book..."Matters Of The Heart". It is Danielle Steel's 100th book. ...
... and people watching. San Diego has a lot of bars/resturaunts which were all hopping with the post marathon crowds and the scantily clad crowds waiting to enter the Hard Rock Hotel. A quick stop by PetCo Park and it was time to find a place to sleep. With no nearby camping options we booked a hotel online and headed north a bit.
With dinner from a vending machine (it's vacation!), we settle in to stream the comedy show Arrested Development.
... place to unwind and catch up, however the food was good and lots of beer choices.
After Pizza Port we went to a new bar that was opened and doing beers and cocktails, Bar 21. we enjoyed dessert and the boys enjoyed some craft beers, before heading on a mini pub crawl/tour of the Carlsbad night life! really pleasant and chilled evening. and Carlsbad was totally lush and thanks to Greg and Laura for helping us with this night out! x

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!
