Best place to celebrate a 50th Anniversary. Everything was perfect. The staff was attentive, personal (calling us by name), the Addison Restaurant was superb, the grounds are beautiful, and the room was excellent.

Hello my Tripadvisor Friends... Yes this one will really help you decide on this place. We travel all over and always luxury resorts that are "kid-friendly" - which for some reason is not that easy to find. My daughter is 5 years old. We had recently been to Kiawah Island, Sea Island Georgia, Breakers in Florida, a bunch of 4... More

We stayed at this hotel for five nights at the end of a three week road trip around California for some rest and recuperation and cannot recommend it highly enough. The rooms were both elegant and comfortable with quiet air con and the bathroom was well appointed with a large shower and deep bath. We ate at the hotel on... More

I've stayed at the GDM before, and happy to see the same opulence and ambiance... impeccable room... polite and friendly service poolside, in the restaurant and all areas where you need it (and even when you don't). The incredible grounds are ripe for morning and/or afternoon walks, leisurely or fast-paced, especially if you're not a golfer....good for the heart and... More

This Hotel is in the same league with any Four Seasons, Ritz, or Montage and is the best Fairmont property we have stayed at. We booked a Veranda Room through AMEX Fine Hotels, and we were upgraded to a Signature Room. This room has a patio that opens onto the Adult Pool Area. Very convenient and yet private in a... More

I attended a convention at the Grand Del Mar. Everything was excellent -- the food, the room and the meeting rooms. The best part of the whole meeting was the golf. The only thing that would make this better would be if they could move to the beach.

Great place . My wife is very picky, she couldn't find a speck of dust, or nick in the walls anywhere in the hotel. Staff was very friendly and responsive. The guests we met in the hotel were really nice and classy people. There are 2 family pools and a kiddie pool! And one Adult only pool, which is a... More

Luxurious rooms and opulent baths with nice amenities. A bit over the top on decor but very comfortable. Some of the rooms can be a bit of a hike but those are the quiet ones. Chocolate cover Oreos on pillow at night was a work one treat. Concierge and housekeeping first rate.

WOW!!! What an amazing hotel!! Absolutely breathtaking! We just finished spending 3 days there ending a 2 week long family vacation down the west coast and what a way to end it! The staff was amazing wherever we went, starting with Rebecca at the front desk where they upgraded us to a beautiful suite, the bellman, concierge, pool staff, etc.... More
