The Grand Del Mar is located in some foothills east of Del Mar, in a very upscale "toney" neighborhood. The grounds are immense and perfectly landscaped. Even the golf course has waterfalls, a stream, and colorful flowers everywhere. I love the fact that you can "self park" your car FOR NO CHARGE! What a wonderful option for those of us... More

The GDM service is second to none. The attentive staff everywhere are friendly and eager to help with your stay. We stayed three nights and wanted to stay longer. The standard room with two queens was more than enough for our family of four, with two young daughters. A very relaxing place where every detail is taken care of. The... More

I had never heard of this hotel before my husband had a meeting there. I was so shocked at how unbelievably fabulous it is. The service is amazing. The decor is beyond belief. They didn't miss a trick. Every detail is taken care of, down to the tassle on the key to the mini bar. I highly recommend it.

The grounds are lovely and the rooms so elegant that you could happily spend a rainy day inside. The only flaw that we found was not offering Big Ten football on the large TV's at the outside bar or golf course lounge, they did not subscribe to that network. Service is number one at the Grand Del Mar, the front... More

The service at Grand Del Mar is impeccable - you will not find better. The grounds are beautiful, the food is great and the golf course is nice (the caddies will impress you with their knowledge of the local vegetation). The only downside that I can think of is that the hotel is about 15 minutes to the beach.

We've been coming to the Grand Del Mar every year when we visit San Diego. Each year, things get better. This year, they've added the horse stable and horse back riding lessons and trails...great for kids. The staff have always been top-notched. The service exemplary. Both restaurants on the property (Addisons and Amaya) are excellent. The Addisons is a little... More

Our experience was lovely from the beginning to the end of our 4 night stay. We have a 2 and a half year old toddler, and so it was important for us to stay at a place that was both fun and relaxing. The grounds and the rooms are lavishly decorated, but not over the top... Our room was extremely... More

This resort is fantastic from the moment you step onto the property you know you are somewhere special. The rooms are gorgeous every detail was thought of from the turn down service to the perfect crown modeling. The service and staff are so friendly and helpful, can not wait to return.

I had a recent business trip to the Grand Del Mar and found this new property to be a gem. It opened sometime in October 2007, yet it feels like it has been there forever. The attention to detail throughout the hotel is great. The rooms are top notch. I had a regular ol' king-size room and it was bigger... More
