Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, North San Diego

San Diego, USA

The hotel

You can be one of the first to see the fabulous new look of this iconic resort. With an exciting makeover being finished in summer 2020, there’ll be refreshed guest rooms, a spanking new lobby and lots of enhancements to facilities. The restaurants and bars, spa and golf club are all getting a boost. The pool complex too, so you can enjoy its family pool with slides and water playground, and the adults-only pool set against the ocean. You’ll still be surrounded by incredible grounds, including the lush golf course with views of the Batiquitos Lagoon. And, of course, you’ll still get the staff who give outstanding service and personal touches — and the relaxed vibe you need for your holiday.

Hyatt is in process of modernizing all the rooms. We stayed at one of the renovated rooms. Very refreshing changes. Excellent service as usual. Occasional construction noise was tolerable. Enjoyed our stay.

The staff were terrific ... helpful, friendly, professional, but not snooty. From the valet staff to the front desk to the bellmen to the restaurant staff ... very impressed. Housekeeping, however, was hit & miss ... had to ask for the room to be cleaned one day, they came very late another day, and no turn down service any night. The complimentary shuttle service (to the beach, the outlet mall, and Carlsbad Village) was very appreciated. Here again, very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are very comfortable and they all have great views from the private balconies. The bathrooms are well appointed and stocked, although the shower is a bit tight (at least compared to my home shower where I don't bump my elbows). The hotel is currently undergoing a massive renovation and that did impact our stay to some extent. Mornings were especially noisy in our room (loud drills, jacks?). The area where the pool had been was just a big dirt hole, but the pictures of what is to be built looked great ... fortunately, during our stay it was too cool for the pool, but we would have enjoyed sitting out by it. They do have a very large hot tub (really like a small swimming pool) that we saw people enjoying. Overall, we enjoyed our stay despite the construction (which I understand will be completed during the summer of 2020, and the golf course improvements in the fall of 2020). I hope to return for a stay in the future. Read less

Went there for a business conference. Hotel bed was horrible. Banquet food was terrible and they put ham on the fish for some reason, rendering it inedible for many of the attendees.

Went there for a business conference. Hotel bed was horrible. Banquet food was terrible and they put ham on the fish for some reason, rendering it inedible for many of the attendees. There was no pool and much of the resort was cordoned off. There was dirt and construction noise everywhere. Then, when I was going to leave, the valet told me that they did not have my key and asked me to look for it. I asked them if they would try to start to car to make sure it was not in there. They told me they already did. So I turned my room upsided down. No key. I then went downstairs and asked to see my car. Sure enough, it started because the key had been in the door the whole time. The bed was half defective somehow, like half of it had been flattened by a steam roller. They really should just shut down and finish up rather than pretend they can still be a luxury resort during this time. The banquet food was also cold, but the one bright side was a waiter named Greg who offered to warm it up and had a great attitude. Front desk people were also pretty nice. Read less

Stayed at hotel previously -- terrific hotel, fabulous staff, beautiful location. Top flight. But it's in the middle of a remodel that has more than half of the hotel's offerings unavailable, and that is impossibly loud during daytime hours (9-6).
