Cancel without Fees

Secure your travel dates now and, if you need to cancel your booking, you can do so 72 hours prior to check-in without fees.

Why We Love This Deal

Situated on over 400 picturesque acres of coastal canyon, past Travelzoo guests say their time at this upscale Mediterranean-style resort was "like staying in an Italian billionaire's mansion." With reviews like that, it's easy to see why deals are hard to come by—especially during summer, when rooms can go for over $1000 per night. But we've negotiated rates at a fraction of that cost with this exclusive offer that also lets you skip the nightly $60 resort fee.

  • Stay in a Fairmont Room King starting at $399 per night through Sept. 15
  • Upgraded rooms are available for +$50-$150 per night
  • Travelzoo member perk: Waived resort fee (non-members pay $60 plus tax, per night)—covers Wi-Fi, fitness and yoga classes, access to the golf putting green, resort vehicle service and more
  • Travelzoo tip: Indulge even more at the on-site spa (one of a handful in the world to receive a coveted Forbes 5-star rating) with a 60-minute Marine Facial or massage

We stayed for three nights. We ate at the clubhouse grill twice and the food was excellent. Loved the pool and the drinks. The French champagne was fabulous! We took a courtesy car with Andrew to LaJolla which was great. Andrew was very pleasant and entertaining. He was quite a conversationalist and gave us some great advice. We liked walking the trails on the property. This was such a special visit. Would love to come back!

Overall pleasant visit, however the resort credit with the travelzoo deal was overlooked and took some time to get the credit added to my final bill. Alos, golf course was not in good condition.

Ambiance, service and accommodations were top notch. It’s just unaffordable for me. $65/day parking was not clear when I reserved and was a bit too much.
