On this most recent visit to San Diego we stayed at the Rancho Bernardo Inn which since opening in 1963 has been spoiling guests with luxury accommodations, exceptional culinary experiences, a full service Spa and championship golf course.
We found it the perfect base while we explored north San Diego county including the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
Our room offered a view of the golf course, close by parking, and balconey with chairs for lounging. Inside a king size bed, walk in closet, refrigerator and bath with both tub and walk in shower.
It had been many years since our last visit which was actually to review its five star restaurant but we noted that all was as we remembered it.
The beautiful gardens, 21 elegant fountains, several rooms with fireplaces for lounging and visiting and a rural ambiance were all as we remembered them.
One thing is new, a restaurant called Avant, and we will describe our culinary adventure there later in the week.
Rancho Bernardo Inn is located at 17550 Bernardo Oaks Drive in San Diego with easy access to Interstate 15. Telephone 888 498-5707. Web www.ranchobernardoinn.com.
