    The Grand Del Mar is a true 5 star experience. We had a suite which was large, clean, comfortable and well appointed. The staff was friendly and professional. Two minor observations. There is a resort charge of $45/day. I am not sure what you get for this. There were no free newspapers or coffee in the lobby after 6am. The other minor issue was the staff in the sitting area by the piano. We sat for 10 minutes without being acknowledged. I finally went and found a server. She was chatting with another server. She finally helped us but we felt that she really didn’t want to be there. All in all a great stay and a beautiful hotel.

    It was our 3rd times at Fairmont Grand Del Mar to celebrate my birthday. We took our 2 children with us so the Palazzo Suite was just perfect for our small family. We arrived on Saturday afternoon to a nice weather of San Diego and ended the day with the high-noon tea experience, which was superb according to my children and wife. The property is situated in Del Mar, near to La Jolla Cove, and just 20 min north of San Diego. I haven't golf in a while but the course at Grand Del Mar looked very enticing and challenging at the same time. It is a must during my next stay there.

    Pure delight in San Diego during our business trip last week. The rooms, staff, grounds, catering, gym, and service were top notch. This may be my most favorite Fairmont! 5 days flew by and we will be back!

    My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in February for a business trip with his company. Starting from the moment we pulled up the staff, from the very polite car valets to the super helpful check-in desk attendants, couldn’t have been nicer. The property is lovely, but remote so you really need a car if you want to do anything off site( though I think they have a car service ) the rooms are spacious, well-appointed with comfortable beds, a ample sized desk, plenty of drawer space and a nice settee. The bathroom was excellent! Large, separate WC, shower, deep soaking tub, ample closet space. The lighting could have been a bit brighter for older eyes putting on makeup. Housekeeping comes twice a day which is great for those of us on east coast time who take an afternoon nap! The property is beautiful, we were on the first floor with a garden room, great to look at. The adult pool was perfect for our group and the attendants, Alex and Allie, were fantastic and helpful. Definitely book a spa treatment! I had the 90 minute therapeutic massage with Cindy who was excellent; she worked out all my aches and pains and found and fixed ones I didn’t know I had! The property is undergoing some renovations so there are a few disruptions and the room we had 2 of 3 evening events was pretty boring...the food those two nights was just ok. 3rd night room, Elizabeth Capella I think, was very cool and food was really good! Overall we had a fantastic stay at this lovely Fairmont property!

    Surprise Birthday Celebration was not possible without GDM Staff

    Booked 6 rooms and invited close friends to join me in celebrating my wife’s birthday at GDM. Called Abukar and made all booking directly. Without him and his staff none of it was possible. As my friends were coming in they were guided directly to their rooms as that way they would not come in contact with my wife before the surprise. The vallet staff was instrumental in making sure it all goes without any issues. Nick/Casey are always there to greet us and attend to any situations that come up. Really appreciate their help this past weekend. Abukar played along and acted as if he had no idea what was going on..our room had a beautiful flower arrangement and a birthday card with most of the staff wishes.. it was amazing.. thank you so much Abukar for making it all happen. We truly feel GDM is our home away from home.
