This past weekend, my friends and I visited Club M for the first time to attend Club VIP SD's Chinese New Year Red Ball, and had an awesome time! The venue was well-sized, the bartenders were amicable, and gave us a great show too! The drinks were delightfully strong but well-balanced. Props to Daniel the bartender* The event itself was...

Returning to the Grand is just like returning home, comfortable, luxurious and just as you remembered. It truely is one of the finest hotels in the country and its ratings have not spoiled it one bit. From the welcome at reception (with the addition of a scented hot towel for weary travelers) to the immaculately kept rooms and pristine common... More

My husband and I took advantage of the three day weekend, and spent three lovely nights at The Grand Del Mar. We enjoyed this trip even more than our first stay over a year ago. It is such a relaxing place, and the service is outstanding. My trip to the spa was perfect. Our dinner at Addison was phenomenal too.... More

I took my wife here for a 3 day getaway. I looked at several hotels in the San Diego area and was so glad we chose the Grand Del Mar. From the moment we drove up, we were treated like royalty. Everyone, from the valet, to the front desk staff, to the pool staff were amazingly accommodating. I have had... More

While many American hotels have top notch hardware, the level of service is not always comparable to top Asian hotels such as the Mandarin Oriental or Peninsula. My wife and I stayed at the Grand Del Mar for three nights recently and were pleasantly surprised by the excellent service we received there. On day one I asked for a light... More

We just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay at The Grand Del Mar. This hotel is truly an upscale, beautiful lodging. First of all, let's address some previous reviews of the location of The Grand Del Mar. True, it is not in the heart of downtown San Diego, nor is it immediately adjacent to the night life, beaches, or... More

I wanted to take my wife to a truly first class hotel while we were in Southern California and the grand del mar certainly met that criteria. It is a lovely property that offered first class amenities and service. They clearly understand the concept of service and that started, in my case, before we got there. The concierge staff (Natalia,... More

My wife and I wanted to get away for a couple of days for her birthday. We hadn't been to the San Diego area for a while and wanted a place where we could relax, plat golf and be a little pampered. The Grand Del Mar took care of all of our wants and exceeded our expectations. The hotel is... More

The grounds transport you to Tuscany and everything about this hotel oozes luxury and comfort. The staff is world class and treats you like royalty. The rooms are invitingly warm and feature all the latest bells and whistles while staying true to the old world European feel. The stores in the main building are great-- coffee/sandwiches, clothes, gifts. Could spend... More

From the Valet to even the managers at the Amaya restaurant the service was impeccable. I loved that all staff took care of tables. Even the managers where going around and get drink orders and delivering food. Every Staff member couldn't have done anything more. If fact they all ask is there something else we can do for you.
