My family just returned from The Grand Del Mar and cannot say enough how much we loved this property! It was calm and quiet and elegant! The hotel itself is stunning and the staff is absolutely perfection. If you pass staff in the hallways, they stop, move to the side, let you pass by and smile and say hello! Impeccable and classy! They make you feel special. The food at Amaya is so delicious we cannot wait to go back next year. Adan was our waiter and he was wonderful! The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfy! It is a large resort so if you need a room close to the pools or tennis courts, request it ahead of time. We were at the far end of the hotel near the spa which made for quite a bit of trekking back and forth to far areas but other than that, we had a lovely time! (We didn't mind the exercise as well!) The only thing we wished was that we would have been able to use the spa sauna and showers without the extra daily fee. We have 2 daughters so it's nice to be able to go sit in the sauna and then shower and do makeup at the spa.
There were adorable cookies in our room upon arrival. The cappuccino machine in the room is a nice touch. The evening chocolates at turn down service were AMAZING! Oh and BRING YOUR GOLF CLUBS!!! The course is gorgeous! Love, love, love. Expensive but worth it. Glamorous and lovely. Enjoy!
- 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
