Nice property, but the location is so remote if you are a tourist trying to see San Diego area. 35 minutes from San Diego downtown minimum. Perched way up on a hill. It has no nearby beach at all and Carlsbad town is ten minutes away even. Just not what we were looking for in a California vacation spot. But the grounds and property are lovely and the amenities are nice. Villas have pool/workout/kids club. Hotel on property is five star, but hardly anyone was there. And it's confusing as the hotel is run by Park Hyatt but villas are Four Seasons. Guests can use either property as they are located side by side. I hope the hotel makes it, it was almost vacant in late August. It is really beautiful, but the lobby areas have an overpowering air freshener smell.Villas are a timeshare concept, so that is what it feels like - like you are in a residential area. Again, nice property just would far prefer to have been closer to town and beaches and restaurants.

The rooms were very upscale but also dated and not modern. The beds were very comfortable. The rooms were very spacious. The location outstanding. The service was adequate but certainly nothing special.

We love this place. Just a two hour drive from LA, but feels worlds away. Our family has been owners for about seven years and we try and get down at least once a year. Feels like a home away from home. The kids who are now 17 and 14 are alway excited to come along and sometimes invite friends. In the beginning it was Lego Land and Sea World. Now it's just lazy days by the pool, beach trips and cards games at night. During our stay the resort held it first ever teen night and my kids had a blast. They can't wait for next year.

Property is beautiful, rooms comfy and elegant. Staff goes above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Highly recommend.

We can’t thank you enough for sharing how much you enjoyed your recent family holiday at Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara. That you consider us to be your home away from home is the best compliment we could have received! We consider ourselves to be very family friendly and knowing that we have been the backdrop for seven years of family memories is a wonderful thing.

I was so pleased to read your acknowledgement about the resorts first teen night. It was an overwhelming success! We have more exciting events planned for the teens through Labor Day weekend.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, the beauty of the property, villa décor and that you felt the staff put forth the extra effort to ensure your stay was perfect! It will be my pleasure to share your kind words with the team.

We look forward to welcoming you back next summer to continue your family tradition at Aviara. Until then, enjoy the remainder of the summer.

Sincerely,

My family and I recently returned from a wonderful week at aviara. We experienced five star service an were treated like VIP'S from the very start! I would have to say one of the high lights of our stay was our experience at the summits pool. The pool staff was very friendly, the food was absolutely excellent! And Chef Paul was very warming. We felt like he was our personal chef during our stay. Keep up the great work!
