My husband and I live at the beach in San Diego but decided on a local staycation to celebrate our Anniversary. The Grand Del Mar was a perfect choice. We booked a room + spa package. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with warm smiles and helpful staff. We were upgraded to a Terrace Room with direct access... More

Was here two weeks ago for this first time and all I can say is WOW! Beautiful hotel, beautiful location, and the best part? Amazing service You would think that would be a given since its a high end hotel but after staying at the St. Regis in monarch beach I realize it's not. I will be definitely going back... More

We are High Tea addicts and went for Afternoon Tea here. It was absolutely superb! We were seated in the Library and we had 2 kids. They gave us stuffed animals for the kids to play with and made special sandwiches for our daughter. The sandwiches were superb - especially the egg sandwiches. The scones were out of the world...

By Far the best hotel in the world. The staff, the food, the service were all excellent. We even met the GM Tom Voss. We had heard about him and how he was responsible for all the awards The Grand has received. He has such class. We also went shopping, best boutique in any hotel I have stayed at. The... More

We revisited The Grand Del Mar this Spring [after a wonderful stay last Spring] and once again found it to be thoroughly relaxing and accommodating. From the moment you drive up to the entrance you are treated with a welcoming spirit. The staff is friendly and eager to make you feel special. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. Our room in...

We stayed here for a conference. I have absolutely nothing negative to say. Service, rooms, amenities, everything was perfection. We spent most of our free time by the spa pool where the service was not only friendly but they anticipated any of our needs. Really, perfection. This would be a great property for weddings, romantic hideaway, families, golf trips or... More

The Grand Del Mar is a beautiful hotel, spa, and golf resort. I don't golf, but the other guests say it is a great course. My wife says the spa is relaxing, and the food here is very tasty. The concierge arranged a deep sea fishing trip for me. They also have a complimentary shuttle to nearby La Jolla for... More

Five of the last six years, our company has hosted our annual meeting at the Grand Del Mar (and we regret not having it six out of six years). The GdM may be the top place to stay in the US, thus my recommendation is in the title of the review. The GdM is not inexpensive, but it is worth... More

Elegant, top hotel in San Diego. Great for families and couples looking for a get away. Service was superb. We enjoyed the pool, the restaurants, the horses, the spa and the golf course. We loved it. We had been considering the Del Coronado. We are so glad we chose the Grand Del Mar. It was much quieter and felt more... More

While the whole "stay at a 5-star luxury hotel with spa, three pools and golf course" had never really been at the top of my 'must do' list, I feel very grateful to have had the opportunity to spend a week at the Grand Del Mar while visiting with family. The property itself is an over-the-top Spanish/Italian/French architectural and landscaping... More
