The resort is absolutely beautiful and very peaceful. We so enjoyed just sitting in lounge chairs down from the pool, overlooking the golf course. Upon arrival there was an issue with our room, and after a bit of a wait, the hotel took care of us with an upgrade. I was very pleased, and it was nice to know that... More

This hotel is outstanding on all levels. The grounds are perfectly manicured with gorgeous landscaping and the interior is decorated with a sophisticated flair. The staff anticipated my every need in all aspects and the spa is by far one of the best I've ever experienced. The most amazing surprise was that my bathrobe was warmed during my massage at... More

Stunning hotel. Simply the most gorgeous grounds, decor, service. I could never do it justice in words. Can't wait to return! Wonderful for kids but not overrun by them. Kids played Bocce ball overlooking our magnificent courtyard full of fragrant roses and flowers. Food was fabulous and our room was very large. We had wanted a suite, but couldn't get... More

I like this property. It pains me to have to remove a star at each visit. It has the potential to be a five star property but fails to listen to the advice of guests. This was my third visit and I expected, since we booked way in advance, to be given one of the better rooms on the higher... More

Our stay has been a joyous surprise. We don't typically enjoy large resorts as we find the service spotty and the families/kids noisy. This was not the case at the Grand del Mar. While the property is large, it is very peaceful and extremely well maintained. It is just gorgeous. There were tons of activities for our boys (heated pools,... More

Very relaxing, peaceful, and quite. Perfect place for adults, children and the elderly. Rooms and bathroom are clean and new. The pools are clean, and well kept. The staff is pleasant and helpful. I will stay here every time I visit San Diego

Every thing about this hotel IS Grand. The room, the service, the grounds. Just beautiful. Couldn't ask for anything else. We came for a business function with a large group, everyone I talked to raved about their room. The staff was marvelous. Never had so much service at a pool area. They bring you ice water wthout being asked. Towels... More

I was unaware of the Grand Del Mar Resort until February of this year on a business trip with my husband. We spent 3 nights and 4 days in a beautiful room facing a quiet courtyard filled with flowers and fountains; I did not book the room so I was not aware of what level it was, but it left... More

This hotel is very Grand and yet very comfortable. Staff is attentive without being overly formal which is what we like. We had eaten at Addison for our anniversary, so we opted to enjoy the music in the lounge and ate a light dinner there. The Crispy Tuna Roll is FABULOUS and filling! Wines by the glass were tasty and... More

After reading several recent reviews I thought I had very little to add. But since this is probably the best hotel we have ever visited, I felt obligated to tell people that. The hotel's architecture evokes Italy, except it is more beautiful than any hotel we have been to in many visits to Italy. The grounds are impeccably landscaped with... More

Hotel Class:5 star — The Grand Del Mar 5*
Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Serenely nestled amidst San Diego's Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve and a mere five miles from the Pacific coastline, The Grand Del Mar seamlessly combines the old-world charm of a Mediterranean estate with the modern luxury of an elegant resort. The result: California's premier triple Five-Star destination and TripAdvisor's #1 Hotel in the United States. Little wonder, given the sun-drenched climate, stunning natural beauty, championship golf course, one of only 41 Five-Star spas in the world, and irresistible dining - epitomized by Addison, Southern California's only Five-Star/Five Diamond restaurant, helmed by Relais and Chateaux Grand Chef William Bradley. From the completely relaxing to the downright invigorating, you'll find a variety of ways to fill your days (and nights) at The Grand Del Mar. Engage in a seasonal mixology class. Take a dip in one of four heated pools. Enjoy an afternoon hike or horseback ride amid the pristine nature preserve. Or, sip signature cocktails at the resort's enticing lounges - all before retreating to your thoughtfully appointed guestroom. Welcome to The Grand life - just east of the Pacific and slightly north of expectations. ... more   less
