This hotel is as nice as any that I have been at. I decided to come for a week before a business meeting and its been a very relaxing time. The hotel and grounds are beautiful and the attention to service and detail are great. It seemed a little pricey when I first arrived but spending as much time here as I have at the pool and spa and walking around the grounds I'm not sure it is that bad. I've enjoyed the adult recreation pool and hot tub area and have found the restaurants very good as well ... Read more

"Grand" does not adequately describe the amenities and service found at this hotel. It was our anniversary, and we were given an upgrade on our room, the size of which was twice the size of a regular room. While the room was amazing, so were the champagne and chocolates which greeted us as well. Each and every employee was gracious and sincerely interested in serving our every need. The grounds are magnificent. We had dinner under the stars in front of an open fireplace. Nearby hiking was well... Read more

We stayed at this hotel prior to it being a Fairmont property. We loved it then and nothing has changed our viewpoint. The grounds and rooms are beautiful, and all of the staff members were extremely friendly and helpful. I don't think the $35 valet parking fee can be justified, but they also offer free self park. Still, this is a wonderful place to stay!

It's no wonder this hotel is the #1 Luxury hotel in California - it literally is the best experience from the time you check in, until check-out.

From the moment you drive up to the gate, you know this is going to be a special place. Secluded and spectacular. The interior has marble and fine wood throughout. Our room was so beautiful and had a balcony over looking the golf course and canyon area. The way to our room was maze like and we rarely saw other guests in the hallway.

The Fairmont Grand Del Mar is The Best Hotel in San Diego. The design team did a spectacular job from Floors to Ceilings and all points in between. Equal to the Design is the commitment to superior service. The hotel is 30 minutes from Downtown which makes it relevant but far enough away to feel like an oasis. It is also 20 minutes from La Jolla and beaches.

We traveled to San Diego from Chicago for a family vacation for a 5 day stay at the Fairmont Del Mar. When we arrived the front desk and concierge already knew who we were and welcomed our two kids with cookies and a toy from the treasure chest. The staff, restaurants, pool side service, were all PHENOMENAL!!! This place has the BEST customer service I have ever experienced. This is the place you want to go if you want a real vacation.

We first stayed at this hotel in the summer of 2013 and felt it was one of the best hotels we had ever stayed. When we decided to do a vacation on the California coast we booked the Grand again.

We have traveled to over 80 countries and this hotel ranks on the top of our 5 star list. You feel like you are in Spain the hotel is beautiful the grounds are so peaceful and the food is wonderful especially at Addison for that special evening. The service and staff knock themselves out to accommodate all your needs.

We stayed here for 3 nights to start our 7 days in San Diego. As others have said, it is a 30 min ride from the airport and hotel is set by itself- which was the best part about it. It is not busy and filled with a million people. The hotel offers a shuttle to the beach and a courtesy car that will pick you up and drop off to Cardif, Del Mar and La Jolla, you just need to reserve it. Otherwise, it is a short drive or a cheap enough Uber ( $5 form Del mar and $12 form La jolla) . We actually did ... Read more

This was definitely a world-class luxury hotel. The grounds, the rooms, the restaurants and the service were superb. It is definitely among my top five hotels in the US, Europe and the Caribbean. The views were breathtaking.

My wife and I just returned from a 3 night stay. This was our third stay at this property. The first time we visited, it was not a Fairmont. This was our second stay since the Fairmont has now taken over the management of this property. Both my wife and I have noticed it's slipping. Nothing major, but other people are noticing it too! I noticed a lot of dogs, and a lot of young children this visit. Addison was a dining experience, and Shawn remembered us from our two previous visits. Ama... Read more

This by far was the most grand hotel I have ever stayed. The service was outstanding. Everyone was very tentative and polite. They really treated us like we were royalty.The grounds and interior were captivating. This was the most memorable anniversary of all.

After spending five days in the overcrowded, hectic, downtown San Francisco, my 14yr. old grandson and I stumbled upon this gem. Originally booked in downtown San Diego after one night of overcrowding due to a convention, I looked for a change. I read a couple of reviews and selected the Fairmont Grand Del Mar. What an oasis! Arriving at around 6:30 pm., I was whisked away to a deluxe room with a beautiful large balcony overlooking a vista comprised of mountains, valley, and golf course. I ... Read more

Excellent room, service, and overall relaxing environment. Only stayed one night, but the staff was great from the time we arrived until we left the next day. Pool area was superb and the drinks were tasty!

Very elegant property, beautiful grounds,great service, kids club is awesome for dropping off your child. They also have a Porsche sponsored marketing event the whole month of Aug 2016 which gave me the opportunity to drive a Porsche Panamera e hybrid for two hours on my own; took the family out for ice cream and a drive along the coast. Only suggestion for improvement would be to make the pools heated. We stayed at the park Hyatt aviara just prior to this and missed the temperature of the poo... Read more

If you're an adult and you get the Signature Terrace room, you'll be in heaven. You have a private porch and you walk down three steps and you're at the adult pool and right next to an excellent spa. The pool is a saltwater pool kept at 82 degrees, which feels great. Comfortable chaise with arms but unfortunately no upright sitting chairs, which I find is a real drawback. I like to read when I'm sitting upright and laying down all day gets to be a bit too much. The Fairmont took this hotel ... Read more

The best part of our stay was the Porsche E performance tour. It is hands down the best hotel amenity of all time. What are you going to remember from your stay at the Grand Del Mar? The mints on your pillow? Stuffing your face by the pool while drinking a margarita? OR heres the keys to a brand new PORSCHE go rip around San Diego in sport plus mode! Thanks to the Porsche employees for being incredibly professional and friendly keep up the good work!

The Fairmont is the right call for the discerning traveler not in need of staying downtown when in the San Diego area. Conveniently located in the rolling hills just outside the coastal communities of Del Mar and La Jolla. This is a large golf resort and has the feel of a Scottsdale/Phoenix resort. Some points: 1. Self-parking is easy and close enough, saves you a ton in valet parking fees. Well worth it. 2. Lobby-café is excellent; good protein shakes, coffee, tea and assorted high quality s... Read more

We have been travelling as a family between Los Angeles and San Diego and staying at various hotels en route. What a gem of a hotel to finish our travels. We don't want to leave. Everything is perfect. The staff are friendly and helpful, the bedrooms are luxurious, the swimming pools (all saltwater) are fantastic. This is a large hotel, but due to its sprawling nature you feel it's not busy and that you are the only guests. The prices at the restaurants and pool bar are sensible and not rip off ... Read more

It started when I first contacted the hotel and spoke to the Chef Concierge, Justin. We discussed what restaurants I might prefer (this was my first trip to the area) and the timing needed for dining and transportation. Upon our arrival, my itinerary for each day was handed to me, the courtesy car service and restaurant reservations in Del Mar and Solana Beach...we never drove anywhere, all taken care. Justin's team in concierge was amazing; coordinating subtle changes in my schedule and seeing ... Read more

Astonishing property. Standard rooms are the largest hotel rooms i've ever stayed in. We stayed last December close to Christmas and the decor, ambience, staff, food, pool was all of a very high standard. There really are no negatives as far as i'm concerned. If you can afford it, don't hesitate.

The location, room/suite, the whole premises were simply beautiful. I usually don't spend any time at hotels, but the hotel and area surrounding it were magnificent so I had to spend a couple of hours touring around! Food was delicious (eggs with lobster) at Amaya!

The most beautiful property. WOW, great activities, separate pool for adults and it even plays music under water! Delish food. Just had a great time. The rooms are beautiful and the design is on point. Ate a wonderful lunch upon arrival. Had a great room with easy access to the pool..Just right outside of the balcony! Planning the next stay!
