We were at the Grand Del Mar the Friday that LeBron James and party arrived... My first comment is the staff handled the unusual large group of guests arriving without wanting to be noticed very well. My husband and I had a light dinner on the terrace and it was lovely, we were given the level of service and attention that we would expect any other night.
My only complaint (but also now knowing after the fact, trying to keep the location a secret) The Club M was closed (not mentioned on website) , booked by a private party.. was not made known to us until our arrival...
We walked thru the hotel, went thru the wine cellar/room.. a beautifully appointed area by the entrance to the Amaya restaurant..
It is not in Del Mar, but out in the semi country... This is a great place to get away, with nicely appointed rooms and amenities(pool, golf, equestrian riding, spa and restaurants).
As we do not live far this is a wonderful staycation destination.
I am going for the afternoon tea in a few weeks, and I am expecting only perfection and continued attention to detail.

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 Fairmont 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.
