Bright, open, and lovely.

Posted Oct 14, 2017
Pros: Beautiful hotel with a casual beach vibe. VERY clean, crisp, and friendly.
Location: Great restaurants across street & an easy walk to shops, beach, and Urgent Care if needed (which we did). 26 car ride to downtown though.
Very friendly staff. Really great food on site but a little pricey. A bit of a drive to downtown but not bad unless you get caught in rush hour...then AWFUL!. Bathrooms were bright and clean and well decorated. Very nice hotel. Pool wasn't much but big enough in the fall. Loved the open bright feel of the place.

Great Location

Posted Aug 24, 2017
Pros: The location, the amenities and wonderful staff.
Cons: For the top price they charged they need to update to do some improvements. The restaurant location is good but food is not so good.
Location: Beach, village and restaurants are walking distance. The hotel has a shuttle to horse racing or anywhere 2 miles didn't take my car out once.
Great place, great location. The staff reception, bell boys are exceptionally helpful and nice. Restaurant food need little help and the rooms need little update for five star resort.

Hotel or Wedding Venue?

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Less weddings and more focus upon hotel guests
Location: Close to plaza, racetrack, beaches and all shops in DelMar
Nice hotel close to all Del Mar facilities but check to see if they are holding a wedding or a special event. We went to this hotel hoping to have a relaxing finish to our holiday. On 2 out of the 3 days that we were there, weddings were held and that resulted in the hotel being very busy and very noisy until late in the evening. It also means that a portion of the hotel is shut off to normal hotel guests. So nice hotel but disappointing experience for anybody not attending weddings.

Wonderful place to celebrate your birthday.

Posted Jul 13, 2017 on Hotels
This was our third stay in a twelve month period. This is my favorite get away location. We are greeted at the curb by friendly and curtious staff who seem to have an uncanny ability to remember us even thought it had been months since our last visit. Check in is friendly and easy. The staff makes such an effort to make sure we have everything we need. Food and bar service is just as spot on. The food was wonderful and drinks were skillfully crafted. I have spent my last two birthdays here. I will be back for another, god willing.

Beautiful location, TERRIBLE beds

Posted Jul 10, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel is beautiful, and the view is unbeatable. Very good service, a family-friendly pool, good food onsite, easy access to a splendid beach, walking distance to great local food options, and the patios off the cabana rooms are private and comfortable, the spa is lovely (one of the best facials I've gotten!). There is one major downside - the quality of the beds. Maybe it was just the room we were in (#138), but it was so bad that by our third night my husband and I dreaded getting into bed. For a luxury hotel with a price tag to match it seems reasonable to expect a mattress that doesn't destroy your back. Do you like sleeping on a collapsing slab of concrete? Then this place has got the perfect mattress for you. As a pregnant woman I though maybe I was just being over-sensitive, but my non-pregnant husband confirmed it was the worst. So bad, in fact, that now 2 days after being home we're both walking around with heating pads on our backs.

So sorry for the bed experience. Thank you for letting us know the room number as we will be sure to look into and replace. There is nothing worse than a poor nights sleep. Thank you again.
