Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara, Carlsbad Ca.
Ranked #8 of 36 Hotels in Carlsbad
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2012

This place is amazing. While the hotel is regrettable now a Hyatt, and has slipped quite a bit, the residence club is still managed by the Four Seasons and it gets everything right! Rooms are very large villas, with cooking facilities and laundry in the unit. Great pools, workout facilities and other amenities. The staff is terrific.

This is a great resort, especially if you have kids. We stayed in a 2BR and it was very spacious. We had a room with a balcony near the pool. They have several pools on the premises and you can even use the Park Hyatt (formerly Four Seasons) pool. They also have a game room for the kids inside the hotel. You can borrow movies and games for no charge as well. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive.

Definitely would recommend this hotel.

There are fewer and fewer hotel chains who still believe in true quality and world class service. The Four Seasons is one of them. I have stayed at the Aviara residence clubs for over a decade, and can attest to the consistent high standards The Four Seasons maintains in Carlsbad, CA.

Welcomed like an old friend, attended to like a celebrity, responded to as if I were the most important guest in the world.

The residence clubs are the hold over from The Four Seasons Aviara Hotel and Residence club project that has led to the Hyatt taking over the hotel itself. The Four Seasons apparently still runs the residence clubs, and I am glad for that.

Spacious rooms that feel like you could move in for quite a while are set in small buildings clustered around pool areas and other outdoor activities.

A special appreciation is warranted for the concierge service. In today's low standard world, the word concierge has been watered down to mean "someone who answers the phone but doesn't really know anything, can we get back to you?" At The Four Seasons, the concierge is an executive who can solve your problem, make your arrangements or offer fine options. From arranging Crossfit workouts at local boxes to finding the right restaurant for eclectic and specific tastes, the concierges at Aviara were outstanding.

Yes, you do still get what you pay for. In the case of The Four Seasons Aviara, you get much, much more.

A few years ago I stumbled across the 'Residence Club' run by Four Seasons in Carlsbad. Since that time I have bought one, then another and at times in pairs until I am up to owning 7 weeks of usage that we use to escape Canadian Winters. In addition I am thrilled that we FINALLY have the resort listed by Trip Advisor ... a service I really appreciate.

If you are like I am - and love to travel with a pet - worthwhile to clarify the PET POLICY. IF you book thru the Four Seasons ( or if you are a unit owner ) you have a 55# pet policy that can be 'pushed' a bit ... my Golden Retriever is an example ( classic Four Seasons reply .... "oh we would never ask a lady her weight" when I originally questioned it ) .... but any 'exchangers' from other time shares who get lucky enough to land a week - sorry - no pets.

PLEASE - try a few days ....then think about this place ... maybe come back for a week ....especially if you can get the full 1 bbd or better the 2 bbd units .... this place grows on you. Do a google search and you will see some message boards ( like tugbbs.com ) for more detailed info.
Note - recently upgraded interiors - awaiting updated images ... but then Four Seasons never lets anything ever get 'worn out' - their standards are the envy of many.
It is hard to tell if you would be happier either the 'Meadows' or the 'Summit' each have their strengths and the complex is low density and a treat to walk around just to enjoy the grounds.

We were able to spend two weeks at this resort this year and it definitely is a place that you can do as much or as little as you want. The pool areas are beautiful and staff are attentive to bring towels and food/drinks if requested. Even though the resort was sold out, we never found the resort busy. The location of this resort makes it convenient if you want to go shopping around the area and beyond or if you choose to stay at the resort to stay around the pool it is nice as well. The barbecues are the best. Having the kitchen that was had everything you needed made it easy to relax in the room as well. There are ongoing classes, yoga, pilates, craft and the concierge on staff are very helpful as well. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for an exceptional resort with great staff to go here. Daily housekeeping was a wonderful luxury!
