The Grand's facilities,staff, spa and restaurants were all amazing. So what's the problem right? Well...I'm glad you asked. The absolutely astonishing number of unfettered bratty children running roughshod all over the place. I'm talking outside at Amaya during dinner, sprinting up and down the hotel hallways. Look, I understand that kids will be kids and the behavior of the kids... More

I stayed here for two nights on a business trip. A beautiful property and great staff. The hotel is warm and friendly, with lots of public places to sit and enjoy the views. My room was well appointed, with a large bathroom, and a sitting area. Furnishings are very comfortable and something you would put in your own home. The... More

To date, this takes the prize. It did not overwhelm me but I was, over the four days I stayed, consistently well served and impressed at the degree of detail that was maintained in every aspect of the experience. In the same way that the hotel service was a consistently delivered, high degree of service, without being over the top,... More

This is an easy one. I have had the pleasure of staying at some extraordinary properties around the world, and The Grand Del Mar is among the best of them. The property is perfection, the staff is the best I have EVER experienced, and the rooms were incredible. I was there for business, but can't wait to return with my... More

Wow...not sure where to start, but will say that we are still talking about our last minute trip to the Grand Del Mar in early October. It was a last minute business trip turned mini-vacation in the San Diego area. We looked at a few of the top reviewed hotels we had not stayed at before, and this popped out... More

Fantastic trip made extra special by the Grand Del Mar facilities and it's wonderful team. Great room, wonderful staff from doorman to front desk to cleaning crew. It's a great place for kids. They are spoiled by everyone there! The food wasn't great. Kind of average but other than that highly recommended.

My 15 year old son chose this property, planned our entire stay, activities and all dining. We couldn't have been any more pleased. There wasn't a single thing that we could possibly complain about. We stayed for 7 nights and it felt more comfortable than home (certainly a lot easier). Amaya was excellent for two dinners and two breakfasts. Consider... More

I love this place. The Grand Del Mar is the perfect oasis for mind, body, and spirit. From the moment you arrive, the entire staff treats you like royalty, and somehow family at the same time. They're gracious, friendly, kind, and attentive to your every need. And the facility is elegantly lavish in all the best ways. Whenever I come... More

Exceptional but not pretentious. Staff and facility are fantastic. We believe the Grand Del Mar to be the finest resort hotel anywhere!!! Once you arrive, you don't want to leave. Go for their third night free deal. San Diego has many first rate restaurants.

Having travelled extensively, my daughter and I expected this well reviewed hotel to be "adequate, or a little above". So many hotels and resorts expound upon their excellent service and amenities, such that one becomes immune to true style and culture. My daughter (15) and I usually travel as a pair and have been fortunate to be on the African... More
