Hilton Carlsbad

For Travel Tuesday I wanted to share some pictures of the beautiful Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa, located in Carlsbad California.  Our family recently enjoyed a staycation at this beautiful resort! I would recommend it to families and couples; it is very luxurious and perfect for a romantic getaway, but it was also surprisingly family friendly!

The resort is located right across the street from Ponto Beach in Carlsbad and the view is breath taking!

Carlsbad Hilton Pool

One of our favorite features as a family was the heated salt water pool!  The salt water was great for the kid’s sensitive eyes and skin and it is so much better for the environment.  We loved not smelling like chlorine after our swim.


Our family also really enjoyed the gradual walk in pool, this was especially fun for wading with the baby!

A small 1 1/2 foot wading pool is also a really fun feature for families with small kids.

Chandler’s Restaurant is located right in the resort for guests to enjoy breakfast, lunch, happy hour, and dinner.  Our family enjoyed breakfast and we look forward to a dinner date someday soon.

I got a sneak peek behind the scenes at Ocean Crest Spa and I also can’t wait to go back (I have already hinted to the hubby that a facial might make a very nice birthday present!)
