I stayed at the Grand Del Mar a few months after it opened (July, 2008) and cannot wait to return.
Only a 15 minute drive to La Jolla, the Del Mar surprised us in every way. Stunning layout, highest quality finishes, terrific staff, lovely adult pool (quite!) and the best sleep ever. Everything about this resort is luxury, yet is maintains a certain casual flavor. I would rank this well above any Ritz Carlton in terms of high-quality rooms and superior amenities. I was surprised by the spaciousness and serenity of our room - and we didn't even stay in a superior suite!
The gym is terrific. The staff excellent. Rooms are beautiful! I can't wait to return this summer!
- 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, 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 California. 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
