Fairmont Grand Del Mar Dog Friendly Resort Review - San Diego
You probably all know that a few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to travel to California! It was our first trip with the girls by plane, and we had the best time ever. The girls were incredibly pleasant to travel with, and were definitely the center of attention in the airport.
We visited San Diego and while looking for dog-friendly hotels, stumbled upon the Fairmont Grand Del Mar. This gorgeous golf spa resort was voted as Trip Advisor's #1 Luxury Hotel in the United States! Needless to say, we absolutely wanted to come stay here.
Thank you so much to Amy and the entire team of the Fairmont Grand Del Mar for being such amazing hosts!
This resort is a Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond establishment featuring the private Tom Fazio designed golf course, a Five-Star spa, four pools, tennis courts, yoga and fitness classes, Explorer's Club for kids, nightlife and exquisite dining - epitomized by Addison, Southern California's only Five-Star and Five Diamond restaurant.
You definitely need a reservation for the Addison, and some suit-and-tie attire. The other restaurants, Amaya and Club House Grill are more casual and don't usually require a reservation.
What we love most about this resort, is how incredibly attentive everyone is. When staying here, you are treated like a Queen or a King (Cavalier King Charles ;). And same can be said about the service offered to your fur baby. Everyone acknowledges their presence, everyone says hi, everyone wants to pet them. They just know how to make you feel special. When traveling with dogs, they will also bring special treats and accessories for them to enjoy. They sent us some bones, some bowls, and a lovely hand written note.
- dogs under 25lbs
- 250$ per stay as cleaning fee
- dogs are allowed everywhere except food and beverage facilities, spa and pool areas
- dogs must be kept on leash at all times
- clean up after your dog (obviously!)
You can bring your dog to the restaurant and be seated on the patio! Otherwise, there is a beautiful trail around this 400-acre property where you can walk with your dog. Be warned though, it can be quite the long walk and it can get hot here!
This is definitely the most luxurious and beautiful hotel we've ever stayed at. We highly recommend this hotel, especially if you're traveling with your fur babies. You won't regret it!
If you have any questions about this establishment, leave them below and we'll answer them :)
Thanks for reading, we love you!
