California’s Only Triple 5-Star Resort is in San Diego

San Diego’s own The Grand Del Mar has achieved a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star award, making it the first and only hotel in San Diego to ever attain Five Stars and the only property in California to earn three 2012 Five-Star awards for Lodging, Spa and Dining. The Five-Star Lodging award places the resort in the elite company of only 57 high-end hotels and resorts throughout the world to hold this designation. Additionally, The Grand Del Mar retained its AAA Five Diamond hotel rating for the third straight year, while Addison has earned the AAA Five Diamond distinction for the fourth consecutive year.


This distinction is testament to the resorts mission of providing luxury and quality to San Diego visitors. At The Grand Del Mar, visitors will enjoy the old-world charm of a Mediterranean estate with the modern luxury of an elegant resort. The resort offers stunning natural beauty set amongst the Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, a championship golf course, award winning spa and irresistible dining – epitomized by Addison.

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.
