I have so many good things to say about this resort I’m not sure where to begin. At first our stay was for business as my husband had a conference here but I’m so glad we opted to stay a couple of extra nights to not only enjoy this wonderful resort but also to see San Diego. We arrived late... More

If staying at this stunning hotel or eating in the main restaurant is a bit above your price bracket then go for a light meal and drinks on the terrace bar and soak up the views and atmosphere. My wife and I took our daughter and son in law there, dressed for the occasion and whilst it still wasn't inexpensive... More

The hotel is quite large and well maintained but the decor is I guess what you might call upscale Mediterranean, lots of wood and brass and floral. Our room was a long way from the lobby - and you had to remember the lobby is on the floor. The grounds are really nice. There is an adults only pool where... More

The Grand del Mar is a stunning and extremely relaxing hotel. The spa is the best I've visited. My husband and son loved the golf course and the several pools accommodate everything from silence to splashing children. The rooms are large, luxurious and furnished beautifully. In my opinion, the food was good, not excellent, but we didn't have the please... More

The Grand Del Mar is probably the best hotel in Southern California. Great rooms, a wonderful staff, an excellent golf course, and superb dining, A hotel experience not to miss. It is a great retreat for one coupe or a group that likes to eat and play golf.

My wife, adult daughters and I spent a glorious week at the Grand Del Mar. It was the best luxury resort hotel experience we have ever had. From the front desk, to the luxurious rooms (ours were adjoining), to the restaurants, the Grand Del Mar is truly in a class all by itself. Fabulous in every way. It is everything... More

Have been a guest here four times. This place is outstanding in every way. The service, property, food and condition of the rooms is simply unmatched. Helpful staff make it very easy. Our suite was in superb condition. The bed was very comfortable and nightly turn down service much appreciated. The golf course property is terrific. Not your run of... More

Stayed for two nights. Excellent hotel, am entities appeared fantastic although I didn't get chance to try them. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Good internet. Staff were great, extremely helpful. Couldn't fault front office, concierge or housekeeping. The casual dining was a little disappointing. But the friendliness of the bar staff made up for it. Breakfast was slow. But... More

I only stayed here a night en route to San Diego simply to have the experience of this hotel... So worth it. Definitely the best I've experienced in the U.S. Felt like staying in a large mansion instead of a hotel. Grounds are stupid pretty and walking in the hotel offers equally beautiful views. Didn't have a chance to indulge... More

A beautiful setting, excellent guest room, The service was very friendly and hospitable. We really enjoyed ourselves. If you are there on the weekend, don't miss Club M. We danced the night away. The pool is outstanding, the spa wonderful. Just a wonderful weekend, we look forward to returning in the near future. All of the accolades are well deserved.
