“In a word....perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

I have stayed all over the world and have never experienced customer service as impeccable as I received at the Aviara. The room, view, food, hotel entertainment, ammenities, shops were all perfect. A weekend was not long enough to enjoy this place. Extremely comfortable bed, wonderful tub and shower. The bathroom was huge. The gym was the largest I have ever seen at a hotel or resort. Pools were beautiful and the ocean is just a stone's throw from the hotel. The valet was service was wonderful even offering bottled water for the road. I can't say enough good things about this place.

Great rooms and very comfortable. Ample in space and storage. Very comfortable beds. Shower however leaks and the coffee expresso machine makes awful coffee that is lukewarm. There are no restaurants or shops or attractions to walk to. The cab any place starts at $22.00 plus tip. Beautiful context and setting. The food for my conference has been excellent. Lunch, continental breakfast and appetizers. However service at the restaurants is very slow especially at breakfast to order from the menu. All parking is valet including some visitors we had. I would not comeback without a car. And the pool closes too early and opens too-late. Gym is good.

Beautiful grounds, friendly, efficient staff, nice room, fabulous golf course. Large property, so rooms are a good distance from check-in, but a very minor inconvenience in light of the setting. Again, the golf course is not to be missed!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad view in the hotel, so not certain an upgrade is worth it.

Just had a 3 day conference at this spectacular resort. The property is beautifully landscaped and set above a spectacular ridge in Carlsbad. The buildings are beautiful and well laid out around the property. The rooms were well appointed with, love the cappucino machine! Staff were professional and friendly. Can't wait to come back for a holiday.

Our 5 night stay was enjoyable. Valet, concierge, front desk staff, servers (mostly) were friendly, helpful, attentive and nice. The one breakfast we had in the resort restaurant took inordinately long, probably because we ordered off the menu rather than opting for the $28 breakfast buffet.We didn't see much excuse for the lapse in server attention - they weren't busy.

The facilities and grounds are well-maintained. Our room was accommodating. The coffeemaker was weird, a little difficult to operate. It was nice to be able to take stuff out of the refrigerator - without setting off alarms or alerts or getting auto-charged - to make room for our strawberries and whatever. The bed and pillows: comfortable. The bathroom was large - it was nice to have a shelf about the vanities for toiletries. Wished the TV had a sleep timer. Nice charging outlets on the side of the bed - would have been nice to have on both sides.

I would have enjoyed a room facing some semblance of east, south or west. Our room mostly faced north and we got very little sun at any time of day. The balcony in March was always wet and uninviting. Regardless of the view or distance from the elevator, opt for sun!

I didn't golf but the reports I got from others in our group were complimentary of the Aviara course. My one experienced friend said, "I never golfed in a botanic garden before - it was beautiful."

The outlet mall is just a short drive away - maybe 10-minutes. The San Diego airport is only about 45-minutes away. And the SD zoo is only about 30-minutes away. So the resort is nicely located.

Room Tip: I would have enjoyed a room facing some semblance of east, south or west. Our room mostly faced nort...

Just wrapped up a two day conference at this resort. Unfortunately I did not sample some of the amenities like the pool or golf. So my review will be purely from a conference perspective. First the grounds and surrounding area are very natural and beautiful. The staff are simply some of the finest I have encountered at high end resorts. This includes all staff from the reception to the housekeeping. All were professional, friendly, and quickly answered my questions or needs. The food was very good for such a large group. They had many healthy options and the deserts were also delicious. My room was very nice. The bathroom was huge, towels were big and fluffy, the bed was very comfortable and the lighting was solid. I will have to get back on vacation and try the golf course.
