I’m a sucker for a good, relaxing throwback of a vacation. Sure I like theme parks and activities. But show me a pool and chaise lounge, a camp program and a luxurious room with a view and my breath goes out in a big giant sigh of relief. I can RELAX. Rejuvenate.
For me, that is what the Hotel Grand Del Mar is really about. Relaxing and recharging. Sure you can visit the nearby theme parks (Legoland, Disneyland, San Diego Zoo and Seaworld are all within easy driving distance) but once you check in, you might not want to. It’s just so easy to while away the hours doing nothing in utter splendor at this old world style resort. Golfers will rejoice at the adjacent golf course. If you get ants in your pants and want to explore the hotel can arrange a guided nature walk with a local expert or you can always hit the nearby beaches for a surfing lesson or head to La Jolla for a round of boutiquing.
We found the food scrumptious at the Amaya restaurant, which has (according to my son) the best Chicken Noodle soup ever. Kids menu and a croquet court a few steps down from the dining patio make dinners easy and breezy. Hot air balloons drifting overhead added to the show.
If you are planning a summer trip to San Diego and are looking for the ultimate in family friend luxury digs… I think we’ve found it! Check out the Hotel Del Mar Summer Specials and Family Deals on their site.
