Fairmont Grand Del Mar

TripAdvisor’s No. 1 Luxury Hotel in California

Fairmont Grand Del Mar

Just east of the Pacific, Fairmont Grand Del Mar seamlessly combines old-world Mediterranean charm with modern luxury. Complemented by a sun-drenched climate and natural beauty, this Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond resort offers an array of ways to fill your day. Play the private Tom Fazio golf course. Relax at the Forbes Five Star spa or one of four sparkling pools. Take a hike or ride horseback in the canyon preserve. Savor seasonal cuisine at Addison, San Diego's first and only Michelin-starred restaurant. Or, shake things up at Club M – all before retreating to your thoughtfully appointed room.

Hotel Tip

Head to the Relaxation Pool for a quiet, adults-only retreat adjacent to the spa. Underwater speakers make for a meditative swim. –Kemi Wells Vancouver, British Columbia

    Good, not great

    Grand Del Mar is a nice facility and staff is pleasant but for the prices they ask, would have expected a better experience. Rooms were extremely nice and comfortable. My biggest complaint was that although staying at the hotel, getting a seat in restaurant was major event. Seems that we were to know that we needed reservations. Might suggest that hotel mention that sometime during check in.

    As you pull up to the Fairmont in San Diego, you realize you are in for a special experience. The grounds and views are spectacular. The service and treatment are amazing. While you feel a million miles away, all the main attractions are easily accessible. If you are looking for a luxury property near San Diego, I can't imagine a better property than the Fairmont.
