Tired hotel, all staff seemed confused, lack of cohesion / working as a team. At the end of the day, this is more of a $250 a night hotel. No music at dinner, no service at the pool (dirty/used plates and glasses sat for hours), unhelpful check-in staff, and interior design that needs a SERIOUS remodel. Would NOT recommend this property unless you're needing to be close to the racetrack.
Everything. Top to bottom.
Everything about the property was great from the location to the service. I highly recommend this place.
Majestick. Beautifully furnished Common areas are spacious and clean.
Hard to navigate.
The property and it's relaxing environment, the proper management
One person named ASHLAN at the pool area, serving the guests, was extremely rude, many times refused to serve water and other things. She was frustrated to everyone and I reported her to the management. I hope she loses her job as it really impacts every other positive thing about this hotel.
Old-world décor, enormous rooms, and a luxurious spa are only some of the features that make Fairmont Grand Del Mar stunning. The Spanish-Colonial-style resort in the rolling, lush hills near Del Mar offers elegance and modern luxury to travelers of all sorts.
Located in Carmel Valley, near Del Mar and La Jolla, the hotel is inland and a 15-minute drive to the beach. Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve, known for beautiful canyons, waterfalls, and tons of natural beauty is a 20-minute drive. A luxurious car provided by the resort will take guests anywhere within a 14-mile radius, including Torrey Pines State Beach, Torrey Pines State Park, Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve, Del Mar, and some parts of La Jolla.
Accommodations are large and stately, featuring balconies, pillow-top beds, a stocked minibar, and a 40-inch TV. Room types vary based on what traveler’s desire. Guestrooms are 550 square feet and offer views of the pool or golf course, while the Prado Suite and Veranda Suite are 1,110 square feet and feature luxuries such as two bathrooms and some with fireplaces and kitchenettes. The Palazzo Suite, Mizner Suite, Manchester Suite, and Brisa Villa all feature amazing in-room amenities and tons of space.
Aside from the free shuttle and luxurious house car that take guests to surrounding attractions, the resort also offers plenty of fun on-site. Four heated pools with a poolside bar and underwater music, an 18-hole golf course, 24-hour fitness center, business center, two tennis courts, a top-notch spa, and Equestrian Center are all available to guests. There are a variety of dining options on-site, including one of the top restaurants in California, Addison. Club M on-site offers a restaurant, nightclub, and sports bar.
Although the decor is undeniably romantic throughout the hotel, there's plenty for families to do. The hotel features a teen center, a kid’s club, and many other family-accommodating services and amenities.
