Park Hyatt Aviara Resort

Park Hyatt Aviara Resort Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The 373-room Park Hyatt Aviara features Spanish colonial architecture and a stunning setting just north of the Batiquitos Lagoon wildlife sanctuary, which makes for stunning views. It was formerly a Four Seasons property, but switching from one luxury brand to another didn't impact the hotel's comfortable mid-to-upper-level ambiance. The rooms are clean, and though their decor is slightly generic (not quite up to the Park Hyatt's usual standards), there are modern amenities (flat-screen TVs with DVD players and iPod docks) and spacious balconies. There are separate pool areas for families and adults, and the adults-only pool is attractive, with impressive views of the nearby lagoon and Arnold Palmer-designed golf course.

Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara, North San Diego

Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara, North San Diego Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This isn't a typical Four Season in that it is a condominium complex, not a luxury hotel. The complex is massive, with two "neighborhoods" called (Summits and Meadows), each with its own heated outdoor pool and small fitness center. Because this is more a residence than a hotel, the vibe here is a lot more laid-back than at other Four Seasons properties -- there's no fine dining restaurant (just poolside snack bars), and the expansive grounds give it an outdoorsy feel that many guests enjoy. But the actual rooms have the typical Four Seasons upscale classic American look, with a beige-and-blue color scheme and lots of hardwood accents. Guests can rent a Superior Room with a kitchenette or upgrade to one of the one- or two-bedroom villas and residences, with lots of living space and a full kitchen. Overall, the Four Seasons is a solid choice especially for families -- it's in a quiet area (right by a golf course) and gives guests the option of cooking meals in their kitchens/kitchenettes.

Omni La Costa Resort and Spa

Omni La Costa Resort and Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 400-acre, 611-room megaresort near Legoland is packed with family features, including large rooms, six pools with waterslides, and an impressive kids club. The spa, golf courses, tennis courts, and on-site shopping help ensure adults have fun as well, but there are extra fees for almost everything.

Carlsbad Seapointe Resort

Carlsbad Seapointe Resort Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Carlsbad Seapointe Resort's large (if bland) condos are convenient for families, with full kitchens and (in most) ocean views. It's across the street from the beach and has lots of kid-friendly activities, including kids' pool, a playground, fire pits for marshmallow roasting, and miniature golf. But it's a 10-minute drive to the restaurants and shops in downtown Carlsbad, and the beach could be nicer.

Ocean Palms Beach Resort

Ocean Palms Beach Resort Rating: 2.5 Pearls

This 50-room motel-style property in Carlsbad is across the street from a great beach, and its barbecues, kitchenettes, and pull-out sofas make it a decent choice for do-it-yourself families. But the quality of the condo-style rooms is uneven, ranging from dingy and worn to relatively upscale.
