We have stayed in a several world class hotels and resorts, and this is top of the class. We stayed for three nights with our 2 young children (9, 5) and had the most gracious interactions with all staff (from manager, to busboy, to valet, to concierge, to cafe and restaurant staff). I rarely give reviews and will not be wordy -- I just wanted to throw my support behind this jewel and am certain that my wife and I or our entire family will be coming back to stay when we can.
I will not go into all the details of the grounds, the rooms, the finishing touches, etc., but it compares in several ways with the best Rosewood Resorts and Aman Resorts - although very accessible, inviting, and really a compelling value in terms of price. And there is no nickel and diming that many resorts somehow get caught up in. I highly recommend The Grand.
- 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, triple Five-Star Fairmont Grand Del Mar seamlessly combines the old-world charm of a Mediterranean estate with the modern luxury of an elegant resort. The result: TripAdvisor's #1 Luxury Hotel in the United States. Little wonder, given the sun-drenched climate, stunning natural beauty, championship golf course, one of only 25 Five-Star spas in the United States, 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. Welcome to the Grand life - just east of the Pacific and slightly north of expectations. ... more less
