My husband and I enjoyed one night in Del Mar and stayed at this quaint and cozy hotel. It was very pretty with a nice view of the ocean. We brought our dog with us. They do charge $125 per night for a dog, which I thought was very excessive. Managed to get it waived as we were not informed... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to post this review on Trip Advisor. I am thrilled to hear you enjoyed our ocean views, restaurant, and pet friendly atmosphere. I want to apologize that you were not told upon booking about the pet fee- we assess this to deep clean rooms after departure in order to ensure the next... More

Truly stunning views and luxurious experience. Pool is easy to work from and the food is delicious. The spa is top notch and does not disappoint. If you have the means, I would consider it. The employees are exceedingly stuffy, but I expect that when I visit places of this caliber.

Upon check in, the front desk made me feel extremely uncomfortable by trying to force an upgrade for a fee in order to get a room that was ready. She said that the room we had booked was mediocre and that for an additional fee she could get us a nicer room and we could check in immediately. Front desk... More

We stayed in L'Auberge Del Mar couple of nights in February. It's our 3rd luxury hotel in San Diego and we loved it the most. Location was perfect for us, in a village of Del Mar and steps from the ocean. The room was nice and clean, it was on the first floor and has a little patio (great in... More

Wow - it's not often that I am blown away by poor service but this place takes the cake. Went for breakfast at 9.30 and was told that the restaurant was fully booked. It was literally 10% occupied at the time. The lady at the front desk said there was nothing she could do even though I told her that... More

In between business trips in San Diego and LA, I spent three nights. For an extra $35/night, I upgraded to a room with a balcony. The "view" wasn't really a view, but it was nice to have some outdoor space. The room and bathroom are lovely. The work out facility is really just a small room with one bike, four... More
