Timeshare owners must exercise extreme caution will all the scam artists trying to prey on unsuspecting, responsible vacation interval owners.
We want all of you to know, there is a new scam taking place.
Scammers went to another resort’s website, copied their resort logo and began sending letters to resort owners stating that there was an error in the maintenance fee billings and that the owner is delinquent – the amount of delinquency being around $900. Some un-cautious owners paid the $900 and then complained to the resort. The other resort staff members’ called the number that was in the letter to the owners and the phone was answered by Wyndham International Transferring Company. No such company exists as a part of Wyndham/RCI. Affected resorts are sending letters to their owners advising of this scam and encouraging other resort personnel to warn their owners as well. At this time, Winners Circle Resort has NOT been affected by this type of scam–but we want to make sure all owners and exchangers are aware of its existence.
Please be on the look out. If you suspect you may be the victim of such a scam, contact your home resort directly. Winners Circle Resort can be reached at 858-755-6666. We will always be able to inform you of any dues owed. A third party will not.
We are here to help. Please use extra caution to avoid these scams. You may also email us directly with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The San Diego County Fair begins this Friday, June 8 here in Del Mar, just across the street from Winners Circle Resort.
Although the fair is a joyous event that includes rides, games, and all the fried food your heart desires it does cause some stress due to the traffic it creates. As a reminder to our hotel guests and timeshare owners, be aware that Via de la Valle and Jimmy Durante Blvd. will be extremely busy from now until July 4, 2012. Even Stevens Avenue in Solana Beach has warning signs to “Expect Delays” from June 8- July 4. Visitors from all over the southwestern United States come to enjoy the unique offerings at the famous Del Mar Fairgrounds, which promises to be “Out of this World” for 2012.
It’s always best to plan ahead if you’re trying to avoid the traffic from the fair. The alternative routes include exiting either Del Mar Heights (one exit south) or Loma Santa Fe Drive (one exit north) and coming back down on the 101.
IF you are heading to the fair, in order to beat the traffic, you have a few options, including alternate public transportation options outlined on the SD Fair’s website, here. There are also free off-site parking facilities that offer shuttles to the fairgrounds, listed here. These include Torrey Pines High School in La Jolla, MiraCosta College in Cardiff, and the Horsepark in Del Mar.
Further, if you’re near the fairgrounds, biking is a viable option as well.
Of course the best way to avoid traffic in and out of the fairgrounds would be to stay somewhere close, where walking is possible, like Winners Circle Resort. Your parking is free, and you can easily walk to the fairgrounds.

Our resort hotel is less than a mile from the beautiful San Diego Coastline. The real issue comes when trying to pick which one to visit. Here is our San Diego Hotel’s list of the best beaches in San Diego, especially along our north county.
Feelin’ Beachy? Surfs Up!
Solana Beach Tide pools: You can get here on Pacific Coast Highway just north of Lomas Santa Fe Drive. Before you walk down to the rocky area you will see an information sign with illustrations of tide pool life. The rocks are actually sedimentary rocks about 45 million years old that contain fossil clams firmly embedded within. Making their home in the pools are: lobsters, octopus, shellfish, crabs, sea urchins, and more! Investigate the natural habitat, and what lives there, with your family and friends. Just make sure you go at low tide.
La Jolla Cove: It has some of the clearest water of all San Diego beaches, making it ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling. The gentle lapping waves of La Jolla Cove also make for an enjoyable day of sunbathing, picnicking, or reading a book. Just above La Jolla Cove is Scripps Park, a great place for romping and picnicking while taking in the majestic Pacific Ocean. It’s just off 100 Coast Hwy.
Moonlight Beach: This wide, sandy beach offers swimming, surfing, and fishing. Facilities include volleyball and tennis courts, recreational equipment rentals and a snack bar. The “moonlight” in the name of this beach comes from the fact that local residents used to come to the area for midnight picnics early in the early 1900s. The beach is located west of I-5 on Encinitas Boulevard in Encinitas.
15th Street Beach in Del Mar
Del Mar City Beach: Del Mar Beach is a great place for swimming, surfing, walking, and jogging. The beach is generally sandy with some cobble stones here and there, and is lined with nice, expensive homes. A popular swimming spot is near the main lifeguard station at 17th Street. Other popular surfing spots are in front of 15th Street and between 18th and 25th streets. Del Mar tide pools are between 9th and 10th streets.
Dog Beach: Attention dog owners and dog enthusiasts! Come visit this beach off Camino Del Mar. Dogs can run wild and free; and so can their owners. This beach is not known for the big waves but the shoreline is still fun to be on. Experience the mixture of raw spirit of the dogs and the pure emotions their companions evoke. This little slice of Dog Heaven is located in Del Mar.
Beacon’s Beach: Between Neptune and Leucadia Blvd in Encinitas, this super-secret beach beneath a 100 foot bluff, is where locals surf at sunrise and hikers swoon at the sunset. This beach also has the notable Red tide to view and lots of seashells to collect on the shore. The locals that come to this beach are very friendly and welcome any passers-by.
