This place has the best combination of luxury and family friendly I've ever been. I'll take anytime on business or family travel. The most excellent service & accommodations. Great location, has a tight golf course and the pool situation is great for kids and has adult only pool as well.

The Grand Del Mar is the type of a place where you know what you are in for the moment you drive in and the doors are opened by the welcoming valet staff. Everything is done with a smile and I found staff superbly trained yet very genuine in their approach. We were upgraded to Palazzo Suite (thank you, Amex)... More

When you think of 5 star resorts, The Grand Del Mar should be what you envision. From the beautifully manicured grounds to the superb service, your every want will be attended to here. It's not for the faint of wallet, but for a nice romantic quiet weekend away, is totally worth the splurge. There are multiple restaurants on site, a... More

This was our first visit to The Grand Del Mar resort and we can't wait to return. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the greater San Diego area. Elegant, romantic & peaceful describe the ambiance of this world class resort. The service was "top shelf" throughout our 3 night stay. We were greeted warmly by each and... More

A very nice property in an excellent setting. The service was uniformly friendly and welcoming. The room was very nice and the view of the golf course was wonderful. I had a small balcony that you really could only stand (and not sit and read a book or the like) because it was so shallow. The property reminded me of... More

This is a world class hotel, worth that little extra if you are wanting to treat yourself. Great golf course and spa facilities. I'd recommend this hotel for almost anyone. The views around are wonderful and you'll definitely not be disappointed! Great job. Steve North

Amazing Property...Top notch service. Lovely Rooms. High on the price side but you definitely get what you pay for. The beds inside of the rooms are absolutely amazing. Classy decore in and outside. I will be back again!

I just returned from a 7 night stay at the Grand Del Mar and it was a tough place to leave. By far what impressed me the most was the courtesy, helpfulness and overall friendliness of the staff. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we had a nice stay. The overall property is very impressive and it... More

Our son selected the hotel for a family vacation, as it is located between sites they wished to visit - Legoland, Torrey Pines State Park, the greater San Diego area. On first entering, the hotel, a spa and gold destination, did not appeared to be a suitable family venue with ornate furnishings, burled veneers, coffered ceilings, gilt, staged library 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
