Arrived in San Diego after a Panama cruise in November '13 and added a few extra days before flying home to England. There was only one hotel on my list (having stayed before) The Del !!
When we arrived, we were upgraded to a sea view room - what a view! The main entrance was not being used, and we had to go through the restaurant, which surprised us. We were even more surprised the next morning as 'Santa's little helpers' had worked their magic all over the hotel overnight. There was the most beautiful Christmas Tree I have ever seen in my life. I felt like a little girl again - the wonder of Christmas was all around!
Even more surprising was the 'ice skating rink' which was being built outside. How surreal ..... Drinking cold beer - by the warm sea - watching people ice skating- WOW!
Sunday brunch........where do you start........champagne (that's a good way to start!!) and every kind of food you could dream of. Lobster,shrimp,beef,chicken, the choice is amazing. You need to spend a lot of time there and pace yourself. I love people watching - and I wasn't disappointed. Couples in love - holding hands over the table,gazing into each-other's eyes. A group of ladies chatting and giggling, families together - from the youngest to grandparents. And us - my wonderful husband and me. Thanks to all at The Del for making it a holiday to remember.
