Wonderful 3 night stay at Grand Del Mar. Service is top notch all the way around. We traveled with our two dogs and staff was very accommodating. Hotel grounds are beautiful. Spa was fantastic. Enjoyed a glorious 2 hour massage. Can’t go wrong choosing the Grand Del Mar. We will be back!

We checked in and had to come back later for keys. The man at the desk wouldn’t give me the key, although the reservations were both in my name, until the man in the group got to the desk. We had two separate rooms.
The room needs updating. The light switches and data ports are outdated and unattractive. The bathroom has cracking, missing caulk at sinks. The shower head was terrible. As usual, the showers and shower head are made for men only.
The food at Amaya was mediocre but the prices were very high.
The bar charged in upcharge for olives with a $20 martini. They charged for olives and nuts. The drink prices were some of the highest I’ve seen, then on top of that they put on ridiculous upcharges.
The golf course was not in good shape at all. They were charging $350 and should have been about $90 with the bad condition.
We were big Fairmont fans, but not anymore. Very disappointing. Will stick with the Ritz or Four Seasons in the future.

The Fairmont Grand Del Mar is a gem. Stayed here for my 2 day birthday getaway to enjoy meditation, restorative yoga, and the spa.

It rained for my 2 days, but that’s ok. I enjoyed soaking in the deep tub in my beautiful room, getting room service, and reading in the dark mahogany library reminiscent of the library you’d see in the game Clue.

Neil at the front desk was extremely kind, helpful and friendly. He didn’t let me forget it was my birthday with many “Happy” salutations and a free latte.

I also enjoyed my hot vanilla latte with froth at the Amaya restaurant. Great attentive service.

I’m definitely returning for sunny days with my family and dog(s). There’s so much to do, and I just got a taste of this elegant and iconic hotel.

Room tip: $70 parking, and not so great cheese burger for room service.

I just stayed here over the holiday season and i have to say it was incredible. I made a TripAdvisor account just to review this place 5 stars. The staff is extremely welcoming and warm everywhere you go and the front desk team truly welcomes you in which is rare even for a 5 star resort. The coffee shop is fantastic and friendly and then all of the holiday activations were incredible. Afternoon tea my daughter went crazy for, as well as the archery and horse feeding. Thank you all for making such a wonderful family stay with our little ShihTzu as well that the staff treated like their own dog giving treats and kisses in every department especially concierge!

Room tip: If you have a dog get a room on the first floor, you can walk directly from your room to the garden to walk the dogs and back into your room

Wonderful experience! We had a great stay and will return hopefully very soon. Service is top notch, and every wish was fulfilled. Best is South California. Highly recommended not only for romantic getaway but also for families. Must visit in California.

The Grand is an amazing resort. One of the most beautiful places to stay at. Staff are well trained and professional. I highly recommended this resort to all who are planning to visit San Diego. It’s also closer to the beach and attractions sites.
