The quietly elegant hilltop retreat with a golf course is one of the most luxurious hotels in the San Diego area, where oversized rooms have every possible amenity (including private terraces and deep soaking tubs) and one of the most sublime views in Southern California, overlooking Batiquitos Lagoon and the Pacific. The 220-acre resort is exceptionally family-friendly. Kids have their own pool and there are nature walks with wildlife demonstrations. The on-site golf
course, designed by Arnold Palmer, is considered one of the best in California.
