The program

Entertainment

With a property like the Rancho Bernardo Inn and a location like San Diego, the opportunities for memorable excursions are endless. San Diego is one of America’s top tour destinations and at Upscale we don’t leave the planning to you. We offer multiple trips and tours daily, geared to adults and kids of all ages. There is no program on earth that offers as much to their guests in terms of trips and tours as we do…and that is a fact! From the obvious like the San Diego Zoo and Sea World to the obscure like the Glen Ivy Hot Springs (known as the Disneyland of Spas) to Skysurfing Hot Air Balloons, we offer it all to our guests.

Dining

A PESACH PROGRAM IS NOTHING WITHOUT A GREAT DINING EXPERIENCE.

We understand this better than anyone. Of course, staying in a great resort and having great programming is important, but we realize that a great dining experience is where a Pesach program needs to begin and end. This is our foremost goal. 
 

We bring you a dining experience that is not only delicious, but also unique and creative. We appreciate the importance of offering a high end dining experience, while never forgetting to include the heimish dishes we all love, as well. 
 
We also feature an incredible 24 hour tea room with too many items to possibly mention, from pastries that just can’t be Pesachdik to slushy machines with brand name flavors, we have it all. Of course, we have kids options at all meals and early kids dinner, whenever dinner is late. All this and much more, go into the Upscale dining experience. We look forward to welcoming you to it.

Kids

We understand that your kids enjoyment can make or break your Pesach experience. We take this responsibility very seriously. Our kids program, whether it is for our day care (ages 0-3) or day camp (ages 4-12), is a major focus of Pesach. We hire a professional company for our day care, so in addition to the level of professionalism and safety they bring, they also have the ability to bring in a private babysitter for anyone that needs it at any time!

When it comes to our day camp (ages 4-12), no one offers a program like we do. A tremendous amount of thought and planning goes into our day camp. It runs every day of Pesach (on Yom Tov and Chol Hamoed) and includes events and prizes for all ages. Every day of Chol Hamoed features an offsite daycamp excursion to one of San Diego's famous attractions. We keep the kids busy from morning to night. We also have nightly events at the hotel that may include movies by the pool, sumo suit wrestling (Its very safe and hilarious!), carnivals and more.
