Grand experience!!!

Posted Dec 30, 2014
The best experience I've ever had, then again I've never stayed at a 5 star resort before. I've stayed at other 5 star hotels and what not when we travel but this place went above and beyond my expectations. I didn't read the reviews prior. Just saw that it was highly rated and I looked at the pictures then I booked it. After we checked in, the front desk person offered to walk us to our room. Surprised, never been offered before. The room is clean comfortable and spacious. They had a nice little box of chocolates for us on the bed. I'm going to keep it short. If you didn't have it or forgot it, they got you covered. I was cold at the pool, they got me a robe. Wanted to play tennis, they got me a racket and balls. Needless to say, a very memorable grand experience. They spoiled me and now the bar is set pretty high. Good luck to all the other resorts. LOL

Heavenly hotel

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Location: One of the highlights of our stay was kayaking at La Jolla beach . We would definitely stay here again!
We stayed for 3 nights at the beautiful Grand Del Mar. The hotel is absolutely beautiful with beautifully maintained grounds. The most impressive thing was the impeccable customer service . Everyone from the concierge who had fabulous recommendations for dinner and activities, to Bryan who drove us to the beach , it was first class. The hotel is immaculate and very quiet. The restaurant Amaya had a great selection and the food was delicious. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. Would definitely stay here if in San Diego again!

Best Stay Anywhere

Posted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: The vibe during your stay is very positive, the other guests are also enjoying themselves.
Cons: The pillows turned into pancakes during the night, my love and I woke up with sore necks each morning.
Location: A short drive to the beautiful beaches, Little Italy, Gas Lamp District, Petco Park all within a 30 minute drive.
When we arrived we were greeted by the Valets and Doormen who made us feel very welcome, we were led to the check in desk who also met us with smiles. All of the employees from the Pool staff to the Cleaning staff to the Room Service staff to the Cafe staff to the Upper Management staff are all very gracious that you are spending your time with them. Beautiful atmosphere all around, the grounds are well tended the pool area is clean and comfortable.

Never been pampered or treated so well at any hotel like this before. This is absolutely the best place. Every single staff member was gracious and helpful. They went out of their way to make our Anniversary a truly special celebration. I can only say thanks.
