Fairmont Grand Del Mar
Not only is the exquisitely appointed Fairmont Grand Del Mar the only five star hotel of its kind in San Diego, but it’s also home to fêted five-star restaurant Addison, an award-winning spa, and an 18-hole championship golf course. Rooms here can best be described as palatial, complete with marble bathrooms that include soaking tubs and separate standing showers. There are four pool areas to choose from, but the adults-only relaxation pool is the perfect place to unwind after a long day. Horse lovers should head to the stables and take a ride along one of the area’s trails.
