Tucked away in the secluded Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve just north of San Diego, this AAA 5-Diamond hotel offers stunning views from nearly every inch of the property.
The lush Mediterranean-style grounds are loaded with amenities. The hotel is home to one of Southern California’s premier golf courses and also has tennis courts, horseback riding trails, multiple pools and the 21,000-square-foot Spa at Fairmont Grand Del Mar.
Those looking to venture beyond the resort can drive 30 minutes to the renowned San Diego Zoo or take advantage of complimentary roundtrip transportation to Del Mar's 18th Street beach, which also includes beach towels, bottled water and beach chair/umbrella set-up when reserved 24 hours in advance. The resort offers other amenities from complimentary parking and Internet, to limousine service within 14 miles, to childcare service during spa treatments, and much more.
