Yes, the hotel is a good haul from San Diego airport, but the location is quiet and relaxing. The villas are nestled around a lovely lagoon with fantastic bird watching and an impressive golf course. Tennis, yoga, the pools, and a few scheduled activities will keep adults or families happy. In addition, the hotel within the complex- now a Park Hyatt instead of a Four Seasons -- has excellent restaurants and a large spa. You'll definitely need a car while there since the ocean is nearby as are a vast array of attractions.
The villas themselves are comfortable and large with fully equipped kitchens and excellent daily housekeeping. I can't say I was impressed with the recent "updating" of the décor in each unit since it feels as the decorator got confused about what he or she was aiming for. If you book the full villa, you'll have more bathrooms and space than many city dwellers have in their condos. If you book the smaller part, you'll have a lovely space and huge bath that locks off and has no noise coming through from the larger part. We love to book the full villa and have friends and family stay in the smaller unit. It offers everyone privacy yet a chance to spend plenty of time together around the fireplace, in the kitchen, or on one of the patios.
