Figured this would be a reasonable place to post this...
We are going to be in San Diego with our 1 year old for a conference next March. Since we live on the east coast, figured we would use this trip as an opportunity to check out some other vacation spot on the west coast after the conference. We are basically looking for somewhere beautiful, pretty quiet, and relaxing for 3 nights or so. Good food a big plus. On the beach is the plan, though could be convinced otherwise. More concerned with beach views and walking than actual swimming. Need a suite (or at least a huge patio) so we can stay up after baby goes to sleep. Budget under $1000 night, preferably a bit under that.
A few options we've thought of so far:
Cabo - actually booked a room at the Hyatt Ziva AI as I found a good rate. A bit worried though that it won't be particularly relaxing. Capella Pedregal looks more up my alley, though $1100/night for a suite is a bit more than I want to pay.
Punta Mita - St Regis looks nice. Sightly less convenient (no non-stop back east).
Somewhere near San Diego or up towards LA - no idea really. Auberge del Mar was recommended, though the price for a suite seems insane.
Anything else? Thoughts?
