Found this hotel on the Internet and booked our stay based on outstanding trip advisor reviews. What a find! Everything was perfect! The room, the service, the grounds, the restaurants, were everything you could possible want from a top resort. It is recently built but has old world charm. There are 2 pool areas, we opted for the relaxation pool near the spa which does not allow cell phones or children. When a cell phone conversation from one of the nearby balcony rooms could be overheard at the pool, security was sent to alert the woman that her conversation was disturbing the serenity of the relaxation pool. Now that's service! We could not get a last minute reservation at the top rated Addison restaurant and instead ate twice at the Amaya restaurant. Each meal was delicious and beautifully presented. We are sure to return here!
- 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
