Spent spring break at the Del Mar with family, and what a great place, great service, and best was the location.
First the place. We really liked our room (Id suggest something on the 3rd floor, had very enjoyable views). The pool grounds were very nice and our 9 year old had a blast swimming every day. Even though was kind of busy, it never seemed crowded and guests did a great job of 'spacing' out between families. The room was very clean, they have great housekeeping team. The grounds were very nice, enjoyable to walk around, we even played bocci ball.
Next, the customer service. The front staff, the coffee shop, the lobby and the valets were all very professional, courteous, and attentive. The wait staff by the pool was very good, the only person that I thought was not on it was the bartender by the pool (and this was seeing the same guy for 3 days), as he was not attentive, not very friendly, and overall a jerk...which surprised me as the rest of the staff was great....guess he was too cool for me???
third, the location. You can not get much better to be central to the zoo, seaworld, the safari park, beaches...yet be able to 'get away from it all'! We just couldn't believe where ever we went, it was 15-20 minute drive. Was awesome
The resort is an expensive place to stay ($350-500 for just a regular room), but was very much worth it, we had a great vacation and even managed to come home relaxed and refreshed!!!
