We just recently stayed here for 3 nights. It is just a wonderful place. the grounds are lovely and there is a walking trail. several outdoor seating areas look really inviting. We always have the breakfast downstairs and outside and it is very good. it was cold this time but there were heaters outside that did a nice job. the... More

I'm always reluctant to eat hotel food but we were all pleasantly surprised. The hotel is spacious and luxurious. My kids really enjoyed the long hallways. I had flashed of The Shining but the friendly, attentive staff warmed up the place immediately. Honestly, every single staff member was lovely. We especially appreciated Paul at poolside, Shane the bellhop and all... More

The service, food and ambience are wonderful and professional. it is a truly grand experience. We played golf, used the spa, joined a few classes, and enjoyed all the opportunities to test the cuisine. It was a truly memorable experience.

A beautiful, friendly, attentive, delicious, soothing place to get wild. The golf course is challenging and beautiful. The surroundings are great for hiking. We took exercise classes that were great. Addisons served on of the finest meals I have ever had, and we live in Las Vegas which knows something about fine food. The staff was helpful for whatever we... More

This is a spectacular hotel. The service is unparalleled and the property is breathtaking . We stayed for two nights. My husband golfed and I went to the spa. We both had excellent experiences. The rooms are very generous in size and amenities, with comfortable beds and plush surroundings . This hotel invests heavily in staff. They are readily available... More

Ok this place is quite expensive but man do you get what you pay for! Impeccable service and beautiful rooms. The grounds were absolutely stunning and the Rolling Stones were staying there! Once in a lifetime kind of place but sometimes you just have to splurge! You would never have to leave the grounds for anything. The restaurants were all... More

I stayed at the Fairmont grand del mar for three days while on business. The hotel grounds are absolutely lovely and about 20 minutes drive from most attractions. The front desk was not very friendly when I checked in. The food was below average. However the housekeepings attention to detail was phenomenal. For example, I left my phone charger out... More

What an amazing resort! Rooms are stunning. The spa is the best I've ever been to (and I've been to a hundred or more of them). I experienced exceptional service from the moment we drove through the gate. Grand Del Mar really is in a class by itself. It really knows how to set the bar for all other hotels.... More

Short review: If you are considering this resort, don't think twice and book it. Long review: I am not sure that I can fully do this place justice. This hotel offers outstanding personalized services beyond anything we've ever experienced. We've experience wonderful service at a number of properties, but I think their treatment of our family - especially our children... More

My mom chose this place for Mother's Day celebration, she wanted to try a different place. We usually like to celebrate at the Del, but why not switch it up. It was definitely a different dining experience than what we are accustomed to. There was no direct staff assigned to the table, no explanation of the brunch and quality of... More
