“A Great Getaway for Los Angelenos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2012

Every so often it's great to not get on a plane and just drive for a get away. The Four Seasons Aviara in Carlsbad is perfect. Tennis, golf, art and exercise classes are all available. You can either get a full two bedroom condo, a one bedroom with full kitchen, living room and dining room, or just a one bedroom. As mentioned in some other reviews, it shares the property with the Park Hyatt where there are restaurants and a bar. Great shopping and restaurants are nearby as is La Costa resort. I didn't encounter the housekeeping problems mentioned by another reviewer. We just called when we wanted the room done and they came. And they're dog friendly so our little Ellie was happy too!

Room Tip: A room at the Summit has a great view.

2 Bdrm suites are lovely, a true Four Seasons residence experience. Very large with 2 and 3/4 bath and fireplace in living room. 3 separate patios. Cleaning service was sporadic and always arrived when we were in the unit. We were gone most of the day. While they were only doing their jobs, II felt like we were tripping over them. One morning they came early at 9 AM. Two other days, they did not clean until 4 PM just when we had arrived home to relax. Not relaxing. Seems a management problem there. We were delighted to find a brand new clubhouse for Summits only to learn it would be closed for 3-4 days for some private meeting event. That is not right when the clubhouse is for the use of all owners. They said clubhouse in area below was open but that is not adequate for a complex of this size. Pool area, hot tub and small restaurant area outside clubhouse was very nicely maintained and staff very helpful. S'Mores were a nice touch and staff was very hospitable. Workout room OK but very small. This residence club has no restaurant - the original Four Seasons' Hotel is now owned by Hyatt. Overall a nice experience but not the complete Four Seasons' delight we have come to rely on.

Four seasons residences are two storey quad plexes on a 200 acre complex in the middle of which is a park Hyatt hotel that caters to conferences. This is a fifteen minute drive to the beach.

The grounds are lush, and generally well tended but need some work. We were placed at the osprey complex which was a five minute hike down some steep stairs to the pool. If you come with family ask to be placed near a pool. Our one bedroom suite was clean, comfortable, and mostly quiet. On occasion we could hear noise from upstairs so if you are a light sleeper you might want to be upstairs. We had no view and it was a bit dark.

You can take advantage of all the facilities at the park Hyatt which includes a nice gym, several restaurants, and the requisite bar. The food at the bistro and the italian restaurant was good.

A five minute drive away is the aviara golf course which has a twilight rate, wide fairways, and great staff. There is an expensive but good steak house at the golf course.

Vons, movies, cleaners etc are a five minute drive.

If you want great service, great views and a relaxing stay just north of san diego this is the place for you. Not on the beach or in the city, this place is great for relaxing, but close enough to beach and city if you want it.

This resort was unbelievable! Beautiful, quiet, relaxing, and the golf course view from our balcony. The pool was nice and warm and we enjoyed the Ping Pong table very much. Elegant furniture, up to the marble in in the bathroom. Wish I could afford to stay here more frequently.
Though it was a little tricky to find the check-in area, the directions they provided were so helpful!
P.S. I was not afraid to use the women's locker room at the gym. No sign of mess anywhere.

We stayed here from September 14th to the 21st and we had a wonderful time. This resort is not cheap but it's so worth it. Everything from the employees to the property is really first class. The rooms are specious and well appointed, and the pool area and fitness center are kept in top condition. If you have the opportunity to stay here, you are a very lucky person!!

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.
