Public areas throughout this two-story, red-roof adobe resort are a collection of small sitting rooms where Spanish Mission–style sofas and fireplaces invite you to linger with a good book and ample guest rooms hold platform beds tucked into corner upholstered banquettes. Great golf-course or garden views are visible from private patios or balconies. A spa holds the ultimate treatment rooms: shuttered and heated garden casitas where you can relax under the sun to the
tune of moving water. The oak-studded and hilly Rancho Bernardo resort course has hosted both PGA and LPGA tournaments.
