We really appreciated the uniqueness of the Aviara on a 9-night visit in February. The suites offer spaciousness and conveniences for a long stay that a typical hotel suite simply does not offer, along with high quality Four Seasons service.
If you are looking for a five star resort, this is not it. The grounds, villas and amenities are certainly top notch, but this is more like a luxurious private residence than it is a hotel. During our stay, part of the property was being renovated so the amenities were even further limited - that being said, we really enjoyed our suite and the property.
The staff were helpful, friendly and accommodating. They were not intrusive at all (we received twice daily cleaning of our room, and yet never saw anyone). The suites are incredibly spacious, although they do not afford much of a view or outside space. Linens and furnishings were tasteful, bright and crisp.
On the downside, we found our room to be fairly noisy, with a bank of air conditioners located beside our bedroom. If a quiet room is a concern, definitely ask to be located away from the air conditioners. The "free" wifi was pathetically slow.
The property is also very isolated, and not really within walking distance of anything. You absolutely need a car if you are going off property, and be prepared to walk / jog some serious elevation if you are planning to explore the grounds. However, we did find that there are lots of amenities within a short driving distance (good restaurants, beaches, grocery stores within 10-15 minute drive).
