Summits Pool

I'll be spending my kickoff initial visit to FSA the last two weeks in July with my spouse. Question about the Summits pool: Are they strict about the hours (especially if you have no children and are quiet)? I enjoy evening jacuzzi and a leisurely soak in the pool when it's quiet.

Hi

Pool hours are 7:00am to 11:00pm ... did you want to go after that ? Skinny dip..:-)

I can't comment on July but we sure saw a big difference the spring break weeks vs most weeks in Feb ... I am assuming there are a bunch of kids in July ...but do not know this first hand ... If you like the entire place to yourself ... come in Jan or Feb ( skip presidents week )

Point on HDMI cable earlier ....they have extra HDMI cables in both studio & living room.

Now - to the letter on golf from Park Hyatt to FS ... no more weekly rate .. hmm ...was at a social party a few weeks back with Aviara golfers and some course staff ... they seems to think 30-40% of play on course was Residence members ... Hyatt is sure pissed over FS starting t build their own restaurant and spa ( I imagine ) ...but it does seem Hyatt will also suffer the loss of play. Note - for me the 7 day golf rate never worked as I can't golf that much (and stay married) ...so it doesn't impact me much. I like the Crossings for golf and with a Crossing Club card golf is very reasonable and - boy - does my handicap shoot up after playing there 10 times .... also been told the Del Mar CC is a very nice place and got hi marks from the golfers I spoke with at various owners meetings this year.

I didn't know they were doing this. Where is being built? Do you have any idea what the timeline is?

Here's what was posted on the owner's website

Four Seasons Aviara announces a new, on-property restaurant and spa coming soon to owners.

Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara is proud to announce that beginning January 2015, construction will commence on a new spa and restaurant on the Aviara property.

We are excited about this significant addition and are confident that the end result will greatly enhance the Residence Club owner and guest experience. Nevertheless, we are also keenly aware that the project is a considerable endeavor that may, at times, result in some minor inconveniences. We think Arnold Palmer put it best when he said "The road to success is always under construction"!

With that said we’d like to inform you that during the restaurant construction phase — from January 2 through March 31, 2015 — the Meadows lobby area, fitness center, locker rooms and pool area will all be closed. In addition, all Meadows guest rooms will also be closed during this period so as not to infringe upon our guests’ comfort and enjoyment.

We will continue to operate all services — including our activities program, our food and beverage services and guest reception — from the Summits Village.

We appreciate your understanding and are excited to share with you more details regarding the restaurant and spa in the near future.

Skinny dip... LOL Tempting, but I'd run the risk of being harpooned!
I doubt I'd want to swim after 11:00 P.M., but I asked because the Summits Pool Details on the owners' site indicates the hours are sunrise to sunset. I overlooked the Meadows pool hours. Good to know at least that pool is open at night.
Thanks for answering, Greg!

Smile Recent stay at aviara

Kia Classic took over resort. News as of Monday FS Residence club owners no access on tennis courts and no privileges for rates at golf course.

Jan 2 thru Mid April close down Meadows to renovate with new restarant and health club with all amenities.

I heard some news regarding FS and Park Hyatt lawsuit?? supposedly Park Hyatt wanted a $ 50 dollar daily resort fee added to each unit to extend the privilege of paying hourly court fees. Thank you FS for not accepting this offer
and look forward to the renovations in 2015.

Best local restarants we always count on go to restarants are Bistro West and Via Italia in Encinatas.

I love restaurant recommendations and will definitely check them out. (That chicken pot pie at Bistro West [Yelp photo] speaks to me. :-)
A very special Italian restaurant I've been going to for many years is Firenze Trattoria in Rancho Santa Fe. I highly recommend it.
