Grand Pacific Palisades Resort & Hotel
To say that the views from the Grand Pacific Palisades are amazing is an understatement. You can see them for yourself as you take a dip in the adult pool during the day or relax by the fire pit at night. If that doesn’t sound appealing enough, just imagine yourself at one of the other amenities the property has: three hydro-spas, an interactive water park, a fitness center, an activity center and a game room.
Luxury is evident not only in the resort’s amenities, but in its accommodations as well. Each of its spacious rooms are equipped with a mini-refrigerator, a microwave, internet access, a coffee maker, a TV, a DVD player as well as an audio system. Its suites have additional features like a full kitchen and a dining area.
Customer service is a top priority at Grand Pacific Palisades, and you’ll know it from the additional services they have. For example, if you need a ride to Tamarack Beach, you can hop on the Ride the Tide Trolley, a complimentary service available daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day or on weekends for the rest of the year.

Right on Carlsbad’s Batiquitos Lagoon is the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort. This beautiful property features an 18-hole golf course, a spa, a fitness center, two pools and six tennis courts. The whole property captures the relaxed Southern California atmosphere with a touch of elegance in its design – both indoors and outdoors.
The vibe in the rooms and suites are similar – casual, yet chic.

Each room also has a view of either the ocean, the pool or the golf course, making it the perfect place to unwind after a day in the city or at the beach.
Another great thing about the resort is its dining options. Considered as one of the best Italian spots in San Diego, Vivace in Park Hyatt Aviara is the place to spend an intimate evening with someone special. Enjoy amazing dishes and wine as you sit in the Mediterranean-inspired dining area.

Once you’ve settled in your room or suite, you can head on to one of its amenities: a fitness room, a pool and jacuzzi, a business center and a top-quality spa.
Its rooms and suites are modern and vibrant, decorated in colors found in the surrounding outdoor environment – sandy beige, ocean blue, seaweed green and sunset orange. Each room is equipped with a 42” flat-screen TV, internet access, a mini-refrigerator, a microwave and in-room coffee.
The resort’s location makes it ideal for beach lovers. You can even ask room service to pack a lunch for you to take to the beach along with a beach pack (chairs, towels, umbrellas, etc.) available at the concierge. If lying on the sand or playing in the water is not your thing, you can rent a bike (which comes with maps and bottled water) from the resort and ride along the coast.
