Editor's Pick
7100 Aviara Resort Drive
Carlsbad , California
Tel: 760 448 1234's insider take:

This Carlsbad hotel offers all the luxury resort requisites—top-notch food, meticulously maintained grounds (with an 18-hole Arnold Palmer golf course and six tennis courts), 329-room spacious rooms plushly decorated and with newly spiffed bathrooms (ask for a room overlooking the Batiquitos Lagoon), and a first-rate spa with alfresco treatment cabanas. But what really sets the property apart is the bend-over-backwards service. Room service is delivered at precisely the promised time. The staff, from concierge to pool boy, cater to your every whim, and pint-sized guests are treated with the same doting consideration. Camp Hyatt offers storytelling, crafts, and games, and there's even a sweet picnic area sized perfectly for the wee ones.—Audrey Davidow
