We were able to stay here through our timeshare points, as there were no other locations available in SD that our timeshare could find so last minute. All I have to say is Oh My God. This place is over-the-top, out-of-control luxury at its impeccable finest. Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous is exactly what it is. To stay here is extremely expensive but once you enter, you almost never want to leave! At first, we felt extremely strange at the staff's behavior - they treated us like royalty, no matter how we looked or dressed. All the staff are trained in high courtesy standards as they do not greet with a "Hi" or "Hello". No sireebob. They ALL (even housekeeping and maintenance) greet us with a "Good Morning" "Good Afternoon" or "Good Evening". Extremely classy and I commend their treatment to all its clients. If I could, I'd come here multiple times a year to relax. And one thing to knock your socks off - when you go into their relaxation adult pool, you actually hear music under water. Pretty darn out of this world. Thank you Del Mar!
- 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 Luxury Hotel in California. 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
