We come to the famous Oceanside wooden pier, with 1942 ft the longest wooden pier on the west coast. So we walked along and checked out all the surfers. Next stop the harbor with the little lighthouse and the cute little houses – the perfect place for a cup of coffee… then we went all the way to one end of the harbor, to see the long ...
... started to do a tail slap and water went everywhere, so I had to quickly out away the camera and oh my goodness we got wet. It it was such a fun experience though. I took some pretty awesome photos and Katie got some great shots of the water coming our way before we got wet. Charlie was not happy with it at all. But still clapped at the end. It was so cool to see all Thai water go over everyone and all the screaming and laughing that went along with it. Then it ...
... whipped cream). Very nice. The kids insist on trying the minigolf, though it is not included with admission to the park! So we pay extra since we are on holiday, but the minigolf isn't anything special. The Lego models around here are good though, and both William and Miranda try the knight's jousting ride (just a horse going around on a track), and Miranda and I try the "Knight's destiny" ride - which is actually two seats strapped to a ...
Hello all, it's one more day at sea and then it's home to Calgary, not that we're too excited ...hurrah! Yesterday we were in San Diego, arriving around noon, and because this is our first port into the U.S. we had to have a face to face with Immigration officials ...fortunately it was well organized and we were off to our excursion by 2p.m. We boarded a bus and our first stop was La Jolla where we saw ...

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.
Nothing better than Aviara....
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.
We called for some sugar, and received a small bag full within 2 minutes *no kidding*. We forgot to take the "do not distrurb" sign off the door, so the employee called the front desk and then the fron desk called our room to make sure that it was ok to deliver the sugar!!!
ATTENTION TO DETAIL. The full size kitchen is enough to meet many needs. Also, there are amenities on site, such as a game room, gift shop, bbq, ping-pong table, etc. The pools are heated and relaxful.
There are two balconies, a full size dining table, seperate master boodroom.....I have to stop now........I can't stand to be away from this place!!!
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.
When we dined in the AMAZING restaurant, Vivace, we had an intimate table for two and when dessert came, along the rim of the plate it read "Happy 10th Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Jones" in chocolate. They think of everything. The rooms are very plush, the bathrooms incredibly spacious. The turn down service is wonderful. They constantly are filling your ice bucket up and providing other treats. The only, very minor complaint that I might add, is that you have no choice but to valet park your car. Not a big deal, but at $18/day, it adds up with the tips you are giving each time you get/drop off your car. We were out at least twice a day, so it got pricey.
We had a couples massage and it was wonderful. You should definitely get something at the spa. It's very, very nice.
The grounds are beautiful and very lush. This hotel is amazing and I am totally spoiled by staying here... I will always want to stay at a 5-star hotel!!!
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!
