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

Beautiful hotel. Upon arrival had lunch at Amaya...took 25 min to get water/menu...manager came over and apologized. Waited 1 and a half hours for our luggage to be delivered to our room. We were anxious to put our swim suits on and go! After 3 phone calls and us saying we would just come down and retrieve it ourselves it... More

I am a real estate agent in Beverly Hills, so to say I've experienced luxury would be an understatement. But, never have I been so impressed with a property as I was The Grand Del Mar. We were brought to the hotel by the wedding of friends and wow, what a wedding this hotel puts on... but that's another story.... More

WOW is all I can say to the excellence of the Grand Del Mar Resort!! We just completed our Leadership Summit there and the ambiance and customer service are top rated. Everyone is upbeat and trying to help in a not overbearing way. The conference team including Charles Stuart and Sue Goodman are the best!!. Fantastic food, service and location... More

We stayed for a week in conjunction with a company meeting. The service was outstanding and they facilitated the conference in every possible way. It was a truly memorable experience. At some point, I will go back for a relaxing vacation as everything you need is at your fingertips.
