My husband and I stayed at the Grand Del Mar in April for one of his annual business trips. The resort property itself is absolutely one of the most stunning places we've stayed. The staff goes above and beyond the expectation to make guests feel welcome and valued. Entry lobby flowers are breathtaking! Rooms are spacious and have such nice perks as a look through window from the bathroom into the room. (you are able to close the shutters if you like) Make up and turn down services are perfect! Bathroom is large and nicely appointed- very luxurious and even has a flatscreen T.V. Nespresso machine is on the bar and espresso pods are refilled daily. Such a fantastic touch! Breakfast room service is delightful. The bar off the lobby serves delicious drinks with friendly helpful waitstaff. Amaya restaurant is excellent whether seated inside or on the patio. Both areas are great for large or small groups. Grounds are beautifully manicured and although we didn't golf while we were there, the course looked very nice. Nearby neighborhoods make a great place for an afternoon walk/hike. The only two downsides of the Grand Del Mar are that it is not located on the beach, and that because it is a large property, it can be quite a walk to/from your room and other areas. All in all, we will hurry back to stay at this outstanding European-feeling resort. We have already recommended it to friends and family.
