Line up ten discerning travelers and each will offer a different idea for the perfect destination for Spring Break. Craig and I are not huge fans of flying to popular beach vacation spots like Mexico or Florida during Spring Break. No offense to the college students, but they travel by the thousands this time of year and I would rather not hang out with them. They probably hope the lounges at poolside are not full of empty nesters either!
Since we live in Southern California and are lucky enough to have great deal of fabulous places to choose from, we like to go south toward San Diego County. One our favorite, never-crowded spots is the Park Hyatt Aviara. We have stayed there on many occasions and even during a very popular Fourth of July weekend and never felt overwhelmed or overcrowded.
The property is so vast that there is plenty of room for families, young adults and those of us without kids. The hotel offers two fantastic pool experiences. One that has a fun water park and pool toys/activities for children and the other is a serene adult pool with handcrafted cocktails and awesome music. Bingo! They actually even have a poolside bingo too. Funny.
On over two hundred acres, you can walk through nature at the Batiquitos Lagoon and the ocean is only a few miles away as well. If you want to stay active there is the lovely Aviara Golf Club or if you want to relax there is the Aviara Spa. Want to get off property for a bit? You can easily get to Del Mar or Downtown San Diego as well if you wish. The property is also dog-friendly! We haven’t yet taken Rocco, but we just might do that next time!
This luxurious property has everything a discriminating empty nester traveler needs. The hotel design is elegant, the service is top-notch, but the atmosphere is friendly. We especially love to dine at Vivace for gorgeous (and delicious) Italian cuisine. The Argyle Steakhouse is North San Diego County’s premiere steakhouse and offers a spectacular view of the 18th green.

The Park Hyatt Aviara is an outstanding choice for families with kids or for my empty nester friends who are looking for luxurious accommodations.

Looks awesome! Especially the brownie bites and milk. Nice touch. We are headed to the Mexican spring break hot spot in Cabo San Lucas. This empty nester is not overly excited about sharing spring break with thousands of college students but I’m convinced I can find some peace and quiet, along with some spectacular sunsets, in a few hidden places I know. I’ll keep you posted…
Jodi, maybe you will not have any Spring Break issues with the college kids. Our son was one of them and I know what was happening. I just know you can go off and find some peace and quiet! Maybe you should write a post for us about your experience!
I’ll update this post when I get a chance to try to visit Park Hyatt Aviara out and take some decent pictures. I really want to thank you for sharing your beautiful life.Happy weekend !
Thank you! I look forward to hearing about your visit!
In fact, we spent five days there last year for spring break. Our room, however, did not look quite like yours. Same view but not so spectacular. We love all the restaurants there. Our favorite is the Italian.
I know you enjoy the Park Hyatt as much as we do!
Amazing! This post is so helpful to me.Thank you for offering it.
