Location is amazing, great restaurants around, beach close, views and sunsets This hotel tag line is « a new level of luxury «  To me it appeared it was a spring break resort. People screaming all the time. The loud lobby is overwhelming. We also paid $1000 /night and had an underground room with view on the valet parking area. Very different than what was advertised The bathroom is very average and does not even have individual soap etc… you have large containers of soap and shampoo. Not something you find in true luxury places There is very little COVID protocols. No sanitizer, staff not consistently wearing a mask or practicing social distancing. The valet team is great but was not impressed by the rest of the staff heard the spa is great but did not experience Nice location but not a luxury place. People that are fortunate to experience true luxury places would not fit there Totally not worth $1000/night

The resort has a collection of bikes to borrow to ride along the costal highway. Valet guys were great. Friendly and helpful. The hotel did a good job of responding to Covid without it having a negative impact on the trip.

Very nice hotel; close to very attractive beach; close to numerous restaurants, sandwich shops, etc.; staff is friendly and courteous

Great location and not overwhelming as it relates to its size

The view from the back of the hotel to the Del Mar Beach is great. 2 minutes walk to the beach.

It's a wonderful location and overall very nice. The pool could use updating and there was a 6:30 am event scheduled outside our room that was not communicated.

The hotel itself is just beautiful. Near the beach, close to town with shops and restaurants. Staff is great. Rooms are well appointed and very comfortable.

Great service, great location, highly recommended

Family trip, my wife and two teenage daughters, very accommodating staff nice property. Very relaxing and felt like a big shot! lol Need queen size beds though, full size beds a tad small. outside of that, top notch property and staff.

This has long been one of our favorite hotels in San Diego area. However, the adult pool was closed, and it appears may not reopen. The existing pool is small and pool area very limited. Was very crowded, no where to sit or swim. This hotel only works well in summer if you don't like to swim or enjoy hiking to the beach and remember to bring beach blankets or chairs.

We stayed at the hotel so that we could stay close to the fairground. The staff at this hotel was absolutely wonderful and could not be better. They have obviously been well trained. I wanted so badly to love this place. The location was beautiful and the decor was great. However, the room was so loud. The main problem is that first thing in the morning housekeeping would be screaming in the halls and talking in loud walkie talkies. This continued for two hours even after we called to the front desk. So we were unable to get a good night of sleep.

It was located close to facility and right in town. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and the ocean. Lovely , quiet place.

Great location with easy access to beach. Room only had 2 full beds and not 2 queen size beds as quoted. No towels available at pool for guest in a timely manner. Ran out of beach chairs, the two times we asked for them. Waitress accepted tips at the breakfast restaurant for guest to bypass the wait list and have her seat them as oppose to the hostess. Lack of professionalism across the hotel in all aspects of service.

Lovely Hotel! The views were beautiful, the staff was attentive and the restaurants were delicious!

Requested a room change after the first night. Per typical, front desk people saw a family coming and tried to stick them in a not so great room. Had a great time overall.

perfect location, friendly staff, gorgeous views. we loved everything about this hotel, including the online check-in process

Love this hotel, love Del Mar! My wife and I were there celebrating our 10 year anniversary of our marriage in Del Mar. It was great to be back...

The staff is helpful and courteous, the location is great for walking anywhere in Del Mar. The room was clean and the beds were fine. A fridge would have been nice. It is a 3 minute walk to the beach but that includes crossing a road and train tracks and it is to a public beach that is popular for beginning surfers. You have to walk down the beach a few more minutes to find a good place for children to play in the water and not be in the path of the surfing school. The restaurant was good and affordable and there are many places to eat and shop in Del Mar.
