Carlsbad and LegoLand Hotel Reviews

Four Seasons Aviara (now the Aviara at Park Hyatt Resort)

Address 7100 Four Seasons Point, Carlsbad, California, U.S.A. 92011 Map, Tel (760) 603-6800 Call, Beach Beach is about 7 minutes away by car or hotel beach shuttle Website

This beautiful resort welcomes kids with a toy from the "toy wagon" and a gift in the room. The pool area, while not huge, was very pleasant with a wading pool, swimming pool, hot tub, a splash fountain, and poolside dining. Rooms included all the creature comforts you would expect at a Four Seasons property and can be babyproofed by hotel staff prior to your arrival (a child sized robe and slippers will also be placed in your room). What I found most helpful, though, were the small touches - a swim diaper in the room, step stools in the public restrooms, a valet staff that was able to recommend playgrounds and kid-friendly restaurants, and a great kids menu at both the restaurant and room service. more

The Hilton Garden Inn in Carlsbad is a convenient option for families visiting Legoland. It's a short drive to the amusement park, and directly across the (very busy) street from the beach. more
