All the five star reviews about this fine hotel are accurate. Top notch in all respects. The rooms are superb, with a high intention to detail. All the additional amenities are the best, multiple pool options, the Fazio course is beautiful and extremely playable. Dining covers the entire landscape from a very high level to casual.

Clearly, one of the top hotels in the west. You need to stay here and experience it....as someone who travels extensively this is one of the best.

Room Tip: 3rd floor...get a balcony.

We stayed 7 nights at the Grand Del Mar for our honeymoon. I researched places to go for months!! I wanted it to be perfect. Boy did I make the right choice. This place is awesome!! The room is great!! The food is wonderful and the staff are the nicest!!! We plan on coming back every year for our anniversary. You will NOT find a nicer place to stay while in California.

This was our first but not last visit to this elegant, luxury resort. From the moment we arrived it felt as if we had been transported to nirvana. The staff is not only courteous and well informed, but also very gracious. The entire property exudes class and graciousness.

We had a winter package and for all of the amenities, the price was very fair for such a resort.
We especially enjoyed having the courtesy car take us to restaurants in town at night. The concierge service was outstanding. I loved the underwater music in the relaxation pool!

Kudos to all the staff and management! This resort is first class all the way. It is so worth the splurge!

Room Tip: Rooms near the spa have lovely patios.

We have stayed here a number of times and each time is a wonderful experience. The lobby and common areas are so beautiful and well maintained we hate to leave the resort. The rooms are lovely and housekeeping is excellent. The staff is always there with a smile and never forgets your name and if you need anything at all they seem to have it.....we loved the Amaya restaurant and breakfast is superb. Just a short drive out of the resort is the town of Del Mar which we have found some wonderful shops and many good restaurants. The drive to LaJolla is beautiful as well as so many other along the coast. This is one of our favorite trips and stops in California.
