California’s Only Triple Five-Star Destination

Serenely nestled amidst San Diego's Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve and a mere five miles from the Pacific coastline, The Grand Del Mar seamlessly combines the old-world charm of a Mediterranean estate with the modern luxury of an elegant resort. The result: California's only triple Five-Star destination and TripAdvisor's #1 Luxury Hotel in the United States. Little wonder, given the sun-drenched climate, stunning natural beauty, championship golf course, one of the country's Top 30 spas, and irresistible dining - epitomized by Addison, Southern California's only Five-Star/Five Diamond restaurant, helmed by Relais and Châteaux Grand Chef William Bradley. From the completely relaxing to the downright invigorating, you'll find a variety of ways to fill your days (and nights) at The Grand Del Mar. Engage in a seasonal mixology class. Take a dip in one of four heated pools. Enjoy an afternoon hike or horseback ride amid the pristine nature preserve. Or, sip signature cocktails at the resort's enticing lounges - all before retreating to your thoughtfully appointed guestroom. Welcome to The Grand life - just east of the Pacific and slightly north of expectations.


The Grand Del Mar offers an ideal backdrop for meetings, with over 20,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space to accommodate a full range of events from intimate board meetings to groups of up to 600.


Young and old will find something to love at The Grand Del Mar. Whether you spend a moment together at the pool or the beach or entice your child’s sense of wonder with the Explorer’s Club while you enjoy grown-up pursuits, there is plenty of family fun to be found on site!
