Hotel is absolutely the nicest place we have ever stayed. The staff is amazing with a special shout out to Umberto, our bartender and Jessica, concierge. Beautiful hotel, food, accommodations all first class. Will go back. Is a bit pricey for food and drink but if you are paying this much for a room you should expect that.

Beautiful accommodations, relax and enjoy. Delightful find, great for a romantic weekend away. Relax and enjoy. Relax around a fire or snuggle in a chair. Would love to go back....hopefully, one day soon.

We travel every summer with my family and we stayed 8 properties of Fairmont but this place is one of my favorite. Easy access to the beach, lego land and groceries. My kids love the pool! Food was yummy and the service was excellent! We also ate in the restaurant near in the golf area. I enjoyed my tuna and... More

This is a great hotel for a relaxing vacation. Also great for group events, weddings and meetings. While you can get in your car and drive to shopping areas and the nearby Der Mar Race track, the advantage of this hotel is that it is both secluded but has a lot to offer guests of all ages

We only stayed overnight after a long flight - wish we could have stayed longer to fully enjoy the hotel. Really enjoyed dining via room service - way too tired to go out after flying across the country.

The resort is very fancy and elegant. A great place if you want to get married or take a honeymoon like a vacation. However, it is extremely overpriced. Not a place I would recommend for a family vacation. There are not enough activities for the children, and the lack of slides and splash activities by the pool make for poolside... More

We live in San Diego and do a staycation at The Grand almost every 3 months. We really love it that much! The grounds are beautiful and the staff are so nice and helpful. The rooms and hotel might seem a little older but thats the beauty of it! If you want to go down to the beach they have... More

We stayed here for only one night with our 2 kids. Wish it had been much longer. This is truly the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The setting is gorgeous, the room was beautiful. But more than the incredible decor and setting is a sense of relaxation and attention to detail that is unsurpassed at this level of... More

Just returned from a wonderful stay. I tagged on to my husband's business trip. It was a perfect balance of activities - pool, spa, and outdoor excursions. The staff was very helpful particularly with providing transportation to local areas.

Worth a trip to this exquisite resort, especially coupled with a day @ Del Mar Racetrack! The resort service, amenities, food & atmosphere is beyond compare. Having stayed in some of the finest resorts in the world, I'd put this Fairmont Grand Del Mar in the Top 10!
