What’s There to Do Nearby?

Hotels in San Diego offer a lot of nearby attractions, and the Fairmont Grand Del Mar is no exception. The Grand Golf Course features a uniquely designed course with lush landscape and the Peñasquitos Canyon as its backdrop. Green fees include golf carts with GPS, forecaddie, yardage book, and bottled water. There are also regular golf, culinary, wine, and cultural events hosted by the resort. This San Diego hotel's Equestrian Center offers riding lessons and trail rides for an extra cost to guests of all skill levels. At the Explorer’s Club, children can play the latest video games, paint, take part in creative projects, and explore an interactive sea mural (fee per hour).

What’s the Bottom Line?

The Fairmont Grand Del Mar is one of the best San Diego hotels for being able to kick back and forget about it all in an exclusively lush southern California setting and world-class golf course. This luxury escape also gives guests the option to visit major San Diego attractions and take part in outdoor activities, like canyon hikes, for no extra charge. The Fairmont Grand Del Mar might not be one of the cheapest hotels in San Diego, but it is luxury at its very finest with everything from personal villas and golf carts at the highest end to the most lavish linens and bedding available in every room.
