“Relaxing stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a short weekend stay earlier this month and had the chance to experience the new lobby, patio area and gym. I was very impressed with the overall decor and loved the feel of the new environment. The villas were cozy and very comfortable. Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara always impresses and we look forward to coming back every year. Actually, we'll be back in December to finish off our split week usage!

Spacious and lovely. Everything about the unit and the views, balconies and superb kitchen where enjoyed by all. Beautiful grounds and foliage. Excellent service from all staff, especially Summit pool attendants! We stayed in the Osprey units and it was a short walk to Summit and great for quiet times.

Room Tip: Top floor views. Need to manage a few stairs.

As soon as we arrived the concierge helped us with a local restaurant for lunch. The service was impeccable and we had a great experience in the new restaurant.
I highly recommend this place.
Comfy beds and lovely pool

Dear Four Seasons Guest,

We appreciate you sharing your recent experience at Aviara.

Thank you for commending the assistance provided by the concierge in helping you select a local restaurant for lunch. We just opened our own restaurant on May 4, 2015 called Seasons. We have had rave reviews and look forward to your experiencing our food and service on your next visit to the property.

We are also thrilled to learn you had a good night's sleep in our beds and enjoyed the ambiance of our pools.

Please join us again and we hope you will have the opportunity to experience our new Driftwood Spa too. Until then, all the best.

Sincerely,
Matthew Hoffman

Took kids to Legoland, this hotel is ideally located, 30 mins drive from San Diego airport, 10 mins drive to Legoland. Service is very welcoming and friendly. Kids loved swimming pool, basketball hoop, play room. Great setup overall.
They just opened new restaurant, great food, nice service, host Chris is amazing, everyone loved him.
Overall, great experience, definitely would consider coming back.

The only negative comment is room age. We good great deal on rooms, but Four Seasons is considered top end hotel. Would it be too hard to change outdated carpet? Kids slept on fold out bed, it's seen better days. Small upgrade would go long way.

Just returned from a week at this property. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with 3 full bathrooms across from the Summits pool and Kids club. We LOVED our time here. Used it as a jumping off point to Legoland, Sea world, beaches, USS midway etc. would have loved to have another week just to enjoy the property. Newly opened meadows pool, spa, clubhouse, and restaurant on site were beautifully appointed. Top notch service, from front desk staff to housekeeping. Kids area has video games, toys, etc and my kids would have spent hours there if we'd had time. Pools and extras like "s'mores night" and smoothie samples for the kids were amazing perks that made this mom feel like it was a true vacation. Beautiful unit, lots of amenities and fantastic over and above service, make this property a gem in my books!

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).

Did a girls trip for a 50th birthday. The condos are very large and luxurious, the grounds are gorgeous, great service, the pool area was quiet and relaxing. The weather in the beginning of October was perfect. There was a great selection of restaurants, spas and shopping within a 20 - 30 minute drive in any direction. We liked La Jolla the best for shopping and walking around. Vigilucci's was the favorite restaurant on this trip. I would say the property and area is geared more for adults rather then children. The Hyatt hotel is adjacent to the property with a great restaurant you should do for dinner at sunset.

Dear Four Seasons Guest,

It was so nice of you to share your recent experience at Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara. We are so pleased that your 50th birthday was a memorable one and that we were able to be a part of your special day.

Thank you for sharing with TripAdvisor how much you enjoyed our accomodations, landscaping & grounds, pool and most importantly the service. Our employees are our most important attribute and knowing that they made a difference in your stay means a great deal. Thank you!

I am very excited to share with you that we are in the midst of completing a renovation at the Residence Club Aviara. We will be opening our doors tomorrow, April 3 to the renovated Meadows Lobby and our newest addition... the Driftwood Spa. On May 5, 2015 we will have the grand opening of our new restaurant, Seasons and Barista. So many wonderful changes have taken place with more to come.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the residence club the next time your travels bring you to the San Diego area. Until then, have a happy holiday and all the best.

Most Sincerely,
Matthew Hoffman
