Inside and out is gorgeous! Quiet ,beautiful, clean, with an awesome view from every window! Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Adult pool area was relaxing and quiet. The golf grill had a nice menu . You could get slider burgers and fries. Upscale dinning was healthy and the wine menu was tops! La Jolla was 15 minutes away by car.... More

Gorgeous resort, inside and out. Staff was over the top helpful and courteous. What I would expect for the price but don't always get at other facilities. Nice walking trail around the complex, various sitting areas, complimentary coffee before 8am in the coffee shop ( at least it was on Saturday morning.) There are multiple pools. Some for kids, families... More

Had a recent business/pleasure stay at this resort. The attention to detail in the service provided and in the development of this resort is top notch. The rooms, facilities and amenities are all very well appointed and managed. We only had one issue in our five day stay and that was our very first lunch at Amaya. Service was very... More

Very, very nice property with gorgeous rooms and swimming pool. The restaurant (Addison) was amazing - I hear it is one of SD's best restaurants and it's evident why. I will definately come here for vacation each year!

Absolutely outstanding in every way, this resort is one of my global top 10! The staff is well trained, courteous and helpful without ever being intrusive. The public areas of the hotel are all amazing, decorated with a splendid European flavour. The gardens, pools and grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained. The rooms are large and comfortable, with all the... More

They asked us if we need bottle water when we go sightseeing in... More

AMAZING hotel. I only have positive things to say. I felt like I was in Paris or Tuscany. The room is HUGE so spacious and also gorgeous. Every inch of the hotel exudes luxury from the chocolate covered oreos that were left on our pillows to the the complimentary chocolate chip cookie with welcome written in chocolate on the plate....

The setting is tranquil. The rooms are spacious and well appointed (I loved having a Nespresso machine in the room). The food is excellent. The staff is absolutely outstanding. It doesn't get much better than the Grand Del Mar!
