Beautiful hotel. Nice service. Wonderful food. Took the complimentary guided hike "Canyon to waterfall" Guide was informative but not boring at all. Waterfall was amazing. Went back and did the same hike with my daughter.

We stayed for one week in this beautiful resort, everything was top notch and I don't say this lightly! The gardens are a must see! But that's not all, I can honestly say that this was one of my most enjoyable stays in a hotel for a while, the staff were very efficient and friendly (but not cheesy friendly!), they... More

I was a bit nervous about my beautiful Grand Del Mar being sold to Fairmont. Not that I haven't had wonderful experiences with their properties but because Grand Del Mar is .... well, anyone who has stayed there knows that this is a ONE OF A KIND and therefore, ANY chain property group would have worried me. BUT the good... More

I stayed at this property just days after it was taken over by Fairmont. The service was impeccable, as is the case at most Fairmont hotels. The property has all the amenities found at an upscale resort: beautiful pools, a very large tennis court, outdoor fire pit, fabulous restaurant with indoor and patio seating (the food is wonderful), spa, golf,...

Grand Del Mar is located in a beautiful area of San Diego. We ( family of 4) stayed in a double bed guest room that overlooked a fountain. The rooms were beautiful with a large pretty bathroom. House keeping was wonderful. They left delicious chocolates and cookies each night. I also loved how they tied up all my phone chargers,... More

My wife, 2 year old, and 6 month old stayed at this hotel for 3 nights (buy 2 nights get one free). Upon check in I asked if there were any available upgrades. After checking, they gave us a free upgrade with an amazing view. The entire time we were there the staff was extremely nice. They gave my kids... More

Stayed 3 nights and hated to leave! Gorgeous surroundings, spacious rooms and the service may be the best I've ever experienced. We had a Terrace Room, with patio just steps from the Relaxation (adults only) Pool. Well designed, nice amenities, very quiet. Spent a fair amount of time sitting on our patio, reading; very private unless your neighbor is on... More

Stayed here one night for my birthday. Big mistake - should have been at least two nights minimum!!!! ! we booked a suite with a veranda overlooking the gardens. Absolutely beautiful! Room was very large and all marble bathroom was huge. The tub was massive - easily a two person tub. Separate shower. Separate toilet. I also had a massage... More

I would like to state that the great reviews are spot on. My 14 year old daughter and I celebrated her birthday for 3 days at this property. The communication for weeks prior to our arrival was constant and specific. The offer to ordering a floral arrangement, to arranging a sunset tour was extremely helpful. Arrival was nice and secluded.... More

After email assurances that my Fairmont President's Club number was entered in my reservation, I was surprised to learn from the Front Desk that it was not. In addition, they were unable to retrieve the confirmation number that was provided in the same email. In retrospect, I am not convinced they actually had my reservation even after multiple email interactions... More
