Very beautiful and peaceful property just a short drive from the amusements of San Diego. Staff was polished and polite. Adult pool & spa provided the much enjoyed quiet and refreshments. The main public areas are museum quality in design and art work.

My wife and I stayed here for one night in April 2014 as part of a road trip tour through California. The hotel is stunning. Service is exceptional and the grounds are amazing. This is a stately hotel 20 minutes drive outside of San Diego. It has everything you could want for a relaxing break (apart from a map as... More

Truly a wonder experience to stay at The Grand Del Mar. It's nice to visit during the holidays and we try to attend the yearly tree lighting ceremony as well. Try the Addison restaurant - best service of your life!

My husband had a meeting here and I tagged along. We had a suite and it was amazing. The hotel staff attended to every detail. We utilized the hotel car service to take us to local restaurants in la jolla and del mar. Everyone was professional and prompt. If I had a complaint, it was the tennis program. There really...

This is one of the most beautiful golf resorts we have visited. We were there 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The staff is super friendly, service oriented and so accomodating to special requests. Their "can do" attitude was prevalent across the resort. The spacious grounds, amenities and rooms are all spotless and well maintained. The pool is heated... More

My family of ten just spent 4 days at this resort. Living in S. Cal. I did not know that it existed until my brother booked it. What a wonderful experience we all had. The staff is very well trained and the facilities are first class. We went on the complimentary nature walk, had a complimentary yoga class and also... More

There is little more to say other than this is an outstandingly run hotel where nothing is left to chance by the extremely helpful and friendly staff. Our stay was peaceful and relaxing as we luxuriated in the gentle ambiance of the surroundings. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel you will not be disappointed by the Grand del... More

This resort hotel really is worth of it's five star status in fact it deserves a 6th. Europeans are lead to believe that the USA has made an art form of superior customer service. This is simply not true. While travelling from NYC to Del Mar we had very mixed bag from the down right rude at the Waldorf Astoria,... More
