“Great for families”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We stayed here with our 16 ms old and had a great time. The hotel is fantastic - great location, nice rooms, excellent service but we were surprised to find it so well equipped for kids. It's an easy walk to a great beach for swimming and a wonderful children's park. The hotel is well situated in town making it easy to walk around and find restaurants. Great spot. We can't wait to return.

I recently stayed here for a business meeting.
Checkin was quick and very friendly. I requested and was granted an early checkin with no issues.
The location is wonderful. You can eat lunch and see the ocean from the outdoor cafe. The food was quite good. I enjoyed the fajitas.
The location was also very close to restaurants and bars. The in-hotel bar had some good local brews on tap.
The room is a little on the small side, but very well appointed.
This is one of the few hotels that the staff will actually go out of their way to greet you when you walk by. This may seem insignificant, but it really adds to the feeling of being a welcomed, valued guest.
I would not heistate to recommend this hotel for business. I want to head back for pleasure sometime as well. I felt very relaxed at this hotel. That's worth a lot on business or personal travel.

We are thrilled your stay with us was enjoyable from beginning to end. One of the advantages to staying at L’Auberge Del Mar is the Village just out our front door and the beautiful beach to the West. There are many options to accommodate the needs of each guest whether for business or leisure. We hope to welcome you back to L’Auberge very soon! And next time you are here, check out L’Happy Hour in our Living Room Bar (Mon-Thu 4:30-6:30pm).

Excellent staff. Extremely comfortable beds and gorgeous coastal themed rooms. First time was in January and loved it so much have come back two more times. Eat at the Americana across the street for the best French toast and breakfasts. The valet staff is more than helpful as well. First time was in back, had view of parking lot but it was quiet and large patio (good price on priceline). Second time, upgraded to pool cabana which would of been better if had more time (was there for work) and if it was warmer.

Great for couples, business trips but not really for families - though the rooms are big.

Room Tip: Cabana rooms on first floor are nice but worth it only if you have time to use it and if weather is...

Great room, diner and spa! The perfect weekend getaway. A few steps from the beach, Del Mar train station and race park. We came down for one night and decided to extend our stay a day. The restaurant was very good, I had the lamb and the best Brussels Sprouts ever (and I usually hate them).

My spa attendant, Pia was also fantastic. Can't say enough good things about this place.

Rooms were very comfortable and face the ocean. A++

This place is amazing. Beautiful from the minute you arrive. The rooms are gorgeous and very comfortable. From the back of the resort you can see the ocean. A short walk and you are on the beach. Very nice restaurants and shops right outside the resort but you would never know it while inside. The restaurant on premises has excellent food and drinks with a nice happy hour. The room had a private patio and was a great place to get lost in your book. I would definitely stay there again. While there, you must visit the Poseidon Patio Beach Bar a short walk north on the beach. Locals place and the people are lovely.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the back. The rooms on the front have a little road noise.

Only stayed for 1 night in this beautiful property. My company was conducting a business meeting and overall had a good experience. My room #263 was a beautiful suite...but next door to the storage room for tables and chairs used for events on their deck. Staff was working in the storage area till 12:30 AM and again in the morning to set up at 6:00. They made a best effort to limit their noise after I made a request but even ear plugs didn't help. Food service was great. The gym was small for a top tier property. I'd come back, but more careful about room location.
