Located in an upscale residential community near Del Mar and La Jolla, this Spanish hacienda-style resort enclave is 30 minutes north of San Diego. Lush grounds contain 49 casitas with cathedral ceilings, fireplaces, colorfully tiled baths with soaking tubs and private garden patios. Some lodgings are augmented by Jacuzzis. The romantic Veladora indoor-outdoor restaurant offers an innovative menu of Mediterranean-inspired “Coastal Ranch” cuisine supported by an exceptional wine list. Other dining options include the lively Pony Room bistro and cocktail bar where live music is offered Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. The property also offers a heated outdoor pool, multiple hot tubs and 16 pristine tennis courts, plus a yoga pavilion, Pilates studio, state-of-the-art gym and adults-only pool. The world-class spa books up quickly, so be sure to make reservations far in advance.
