... pale when I came off. Mike said that the look on my face when we hit the big dip was classic. He was watching everyone and said that most adults were hilarious to watch.
After a pleasant cruise, we walked through Miniland. This was one of my favourite parts of Legoland. They have built New York City, Washington, San Francisco, New Orleans and some famous monuments (Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House etc) out of Lego. The attention to details is ...
... room was huge with king beds and finally a large walk in shower with decent taps and shower heads. Good showers have been a rarity in the hotels we have stayed at. We ducked out to once again hit the factory outlets. There were still a few items on the shopping lists that hadn't been ticked. Finally found a lovely new leather IPad case on sale in the Fossil store. A few more Chrissy gifts some clothes for Hamish and most importantly, another bag was bought to transport everything ...
... dropped wide open and was saying, "oh my gosh!"
I could explain everything in detail but that's what the pictures are for so you can see all the things we went on there. It is a very cool place but I would have to say that it is more for younger kids, kids maybe 7 and under. The only reason I say this is because Hugh has been on so many big, scary roller coasters the ones at this park were ...
... with Lost & Found in Los Angeles, but no luck. So, yesterday afternoon about 2:00 we ordered a replacement on Amazon.com with overnight shipping and today at 9:58 a.m. it arrived at the hotel. YAY! The picture taking part of our adventure can proceed! We have checked in with Holland America, our bags will be picked up around 9:00 tomorrow, our bodies will be picked up at 11:15, and the ship will sail at 5:00 p.m. Bon Voyage to ...
... you're going. It was 1.5 miles long and topped out at an elevation of 1,200 feet. Doesn't sound very high does it? But 1,200 feet is a pretty big deal around here. The trail is very uneven and rocky, as far as terrain goes, and can be quite steep at times, but for those of us who have recently climbed to Victoria's Peak (Hong Kong), the Great Wall of China (China), and to see the monkeys at Arashiyama (Japan), it was small potatoes. The trail starts off by a ...

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!
